I just realized I am going to be out of town the week GTA V releases... frown I went with amazon instead of MS with the $20 back deal because I get free release day delivery... doh.

is it sad I just spent a half hour in the marketplace trying to coordinate an outfit that looks good, and even took a hit of a couple of defense points to do so?

Yes, absolutely.

On the stability front, I was able to log in 3 times yesterday with no waiting or errors. I also decided to just stick with the server I am on and if eventually there is an opportunity to move somewhere that has people with names I would recognize, I will do that. I know people on about 7 different servers now, but GT has the most concentrated mass (did I just call you fat?).

One of these days I may possibly join a group.

For a backup job I've been thinking about raising foxes. $17 for a 6-oz bottle of urine? Unreal. (Love the company's name: Leg-Up Productions.)

Consider for a moment what you have to do to catch fox urine... yeah, I think buying it is jsut fine.

I was able to log in this morning at around 7:00 MST.  So non-peak, weekday seems OK...we'll see what happens tonight or this weekend.

Yeah, I was finally able to create a character on Coeurl... of course it was 7am on a school day following a patch. Now I need to consider if I really want to start over just to be on the same server as some strangers on the internet. slywink

I am concerned by the fact they only added 1 new server for each region. I can see why they would want to be conservative, but I am not sure it is the right move.

Woo!  Back to mortgage talk!

My offer on the house just got accepted.   headbang  Now the fate of whether or not I own a launch PS4 is entirely dependent on finalizing the mortgage details to see exactly how much my monthly payments will end up being.

Jebus.  Made the horrible mistake of doing both the home inspection and the consultation about the mortgage details of the same day.  As much as I'd love to be part of the launch excitement of either console, thoughts of closing costs, home repairs/upgrades, appliances, and surviving Christmas (winter is coming...), I'm thinking I can still milk this generation of consoles a wee bit longer.  Maybe this next year is a good time to look at all the high profile titles I missed during their initial run.

Amazon PS4 preorder... cancelled.   crybaby

There is an obvious answer here and I am not sure why you haven't thought of it... make more money!

I haven't seen any mention of the word grind outside of comments that trying to login feels like a grind. The only grind in this game that I have seen or heard of so far is gathering skills (fishing, botanist, mining - I've done 2 of the 3) and that is pretty much their nature.

I am really trying to keep myself from buying this. 2 months later I will have a brand new console that it won't play on. I will only be able to play it when the kids are asleep. Eventually it will come to PC. Yes, I'm so lazy that going up the media room and waiting for the projector to warmup to play is a negative.

Don't forget that we're ending a summer dry spell with regular TV. You will soon be able to watch new episodes of your favorites in lieu of the typical summer tidal wave of bad reality TV. This may not affect your entertainment choices, but if your wife watches TV in your media room..

Good thought, but she doesn't really use the media room for TV. I went ahead and pre-ordered. I have to have it. It's not like there was really a choice.

so,main story yes...but class story,you have to have the right class equipped and be at the right level,no being a lvl 20 healer trying to do a lvl 20 Gladiator mission

The forced grouping is only the main story though right? They can't make us find tanks and healers to do DPS class missions... can they?

One of the reasons I never played XI was because of the grouping. EQ was the last time I grouped regularly and I didn't like it then (I was a warrior, not many options there) which is why I never got to max level, I did kill a few dragons though (no, not solo). That was about my last raids also. I tried a few in WoW, but I didn't have the time or interest to keep up with the gearing.

Now, despite the populations of both sites starting out from the same group, they have fairly different tones/feels. It's just different.

Just as a counterpoint, I bought it Friday evening and have had a blast with it. Yes I have been on a different server from everyone I know and getting in can be a pain, but the game is worth it in my opinion. Once they get the login issues squared away, it will be even better. My only complaint with the game is that grouping is an absolute requirement at certain checkpoints in the main story. Consider this punishment for the joy that is playing DPS.

Serious question, if I multi-class as a healer, can I go through the dungeons as a healer and the progression through the main story will apply to the character in general? it makes sense to me, but before I give it any more thought I wanted to be sure. It's like having alt-itis but it all kind of helps the same character. smile

Can you have character in both JP and NA regions? I'm impatient and want to start in JP, but don't want to if it will lock me out of NA/EU.


'fraid not..at least not the same character anyway

there will be a service where you can jump worlds later on down the line "for a price",but not sure when that will happen

Sorry I didn't make that question clear, I'm asking if I can create a character on JP and then later create another character on EU/NA whenever it is possible.

Skyrim! My second character, started to do the expansion content and the other side of the war, just surpassed the original in level, though not damage output. Yes, my second character was going full destruction... she now has 76 destruction... and 100 archery and 95 sneak. Sneaky Archer forever!

I'm curious about competive play (it addresses the co-op alpha player problem) but more I would be looking at what they come up with for tiles and new options for scenarios. Season 1 stuff has become stale. I know Season 2 is going to make things a lot more interesting with Toxic and Berserkers as well as many more possible board layouts, but eventually we'll need more!

They hint at different spawning rules also which I am curious about.

I'm sure I'll get it whatever it turns out to be, more survivors you know, because two dozen isn't enough! I may need more fuzz boxes.

Zombicide is the third most expensive game investment I have made, of course I'll continue pumping the cash in. It will take a couple more seasons to pass up heroscape and decades to pass up Magic: The Gathering. slywink

Quote from: coopasonic on August 29, 2013, 07:54:59 PM

I have a friend at work that went from respiratory therapist to DBA and his wife is a nurse of decades who just finished her BS. I think he might have a unique perspective. I've asked him to pass along some input.

Quote
I think Nursing may be the better choice, primarily because they have a better lobby with the government (they make more money).  Respiratory Therapists (RT) donít have as much face time with the patients, as they have to cover a large portion of the hospital.  RTs walk\stand\run constantly.  Even in intensive care, you may have 5 ventilator patients to take care of (and they donít talk).  The nurseís patients are in a single area, and there are chairs.  Nurses have more patient\family contact. RTís are focused on the more critical patients, so their time must be much more divided.  Plus, the RT can do some unpleasant things to the patients, so they are not always happy to see them.  I went for months where my only break was the elevator ride between floors (I rode the elevator up, and took the stairs down).

There are rules for the minimum number of nurses in a hospital, but none for Respiratory Therapists.  Some hospitals have eliminated all respiratory therapists.  Most hospitals are requiring Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) to be hired, which is a full 4 years.  There are online nursing programs, but most are for RNís that need to get their BSN to keep their job (Diana was one). 

There are 2 year respiratory therapy programs Certified Respiratory Therapy Technician (CRTT), but the pay is not very good.  The Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) is the preferred way to go, but most are going to a bachelorís degree programs (at least the good schools). 

The one positive about RT is when the patient poops themself, you can leave the room until it is cleaned up (the nurses have to clean it up).  The rooms of respiratory patients generally smell better.
