1  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Resume writing guides? on: August 09, 2015, 03:57:54 PM
oh, and one page front/back is my rule of thumb.

Remember, your resume' is there to entice the person looking at it- you want them to want to find out more about you

Quote from: drifter on August 09, 2015, 03:24:48 PM

Don't bother with the "My goal is" statement no one who is hiring cares what your goal is they care what you can do for them.

I strongly disagree with this, at least in my experience. They might not care about the goal itself but showing some level of ambition or desire for growth is crucial.

I would take the job, suck it up on the commute until I could confirm I liked the job, and use some of that new stockpile to move a little closer smile

Same, but I lose my free HBO in another year. Isn't HBO $20/month on cable? If so, I wonder if they will lower cable prices so they can compete with set top boxes.

I'm paying $19.99 a month to Comcast for it.  I'll be switching as soon as I watch the first episode of Game of Thrones on the new service and verify it's not crap.

You can verify it right now- AppleTV has had HBO Go for a while

No, you can just take that shit to the proper forum.

To be fair, he didn't start the thread.

I apologize.  Perhaps it shows how partisan I already am but I didn't see anything particularly political about the clip. 

I don't think we're at the point where a mention of the president (much less a video featuring him) isn't inherently political. Hell, talking about his wife and kids is fair game in the political arena these days.

All I can say is this- we've got new forum software lined up for the beginning of the year. Tagging is one if it's features. If we try to install a plugin for this software, it is far more likely than not that those tags would not survive a forum migration.

I'm aware of it. Its on my list, but not sure when it'll get fixed. I've looked into it a couple of times a while back but no easy answer came out of it, leaving me to thing that some serious restructuring of the nav bar would be what it takes to fix it.

I've put it off until I can look at the front page and make it responsive instead of just applying a band-aid

The cache updates every 3 hours. No further detail required so far, thanks!

Release calendar is now live on the site (and in the main nav): http://gamingtrend.com/calendar/

Future releases will enable you to go to the game record on the site- we're still working that one out smile

Hope nobody misses the 'Arcade' link in the main nav...

I've been slowly remembering his great performances all day today. I definitely took him for granted these last few years, what with the more disappointing and, in my opinion, pandering mainstream stuff like Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, and especially the Night at the Museum dreck. The recent Louis guest appearance really hits you in the gut, considering the last dialogue between him and CK. Yes, this one hurts. It hurts deep. frown

We did notice a sprawling line of parents and their sugar-numbed kids waiting in line for the Turtles movie, which is apparently wiping out Guardians of the Galaxy and everything else at the box office this weekend.

Yeah, but likely only for this weekend, and the Turtles opening weekend doesn't look like it's going to break any records

Question for those who saw it:  is the 3D worth the extra cost of admission?  Or does it seem tacked on or superfluous?

Go see it in IMAX- the entire movie was filmed with an IMAX camera

I read it wasn't

Quote
If you are wondering whether it is worth it to see it in Imax 3-D, then the answer is more complicated than you might think. It definitely enhanced the experience, but I am not sure if it needed to be Imax. Since only portions of the film were shot in Imax, the aspect ratio is constantly changing, which can be annoying. I would probably recommend seeing it just in 3-D, as some of the shots look incredible just because of their depth. The only downside is that the 3-D is very cool at the beginning, but as you get used to it, it stops being noticeable.

Well, I saw it again in IMAX yeserday and didn't notice the aspect ratio changing at all. It rocked.

I was actually pleasantly surprised with Drax- I thought he was great, though certainly outshined by Peter, Rocket & Groot.

Gamora was a bit off for me, but she's extremely one-note in the comics so it didn't bother me too much.

Quote from: Bashtor on August 01, 2014, 04:46:21 PM

Let me throw the reason I don't like no matchmaking out there.  I'm in the military and stationed in Korea right now.  Due to this, my timeframe for playing is when everyone I know is mostly sleeping in the states.  This makes it more difficult to find people that play, as people I know who play won't be playing when I am.  I am not a social person, so just picking up and making friends in the game will most likely not happen.  I get that's what they invision, but I'm a big boy and will make my friends how I make them.  In addition, any friends I make there would be potentially not playing at the times I will be playing once I return home.  Now, I admit my problem is a unique one that will not affect many players, but it would be much easier for me if I could just join a match to play these raids.  Will they change the system for the minority of players like myself? Of course not and i wouldn't expect them to, but I, personally, do not like no match-making for raids.  Of course, I am probably one of the most anti-social people with zero friends on my psn account, so I'm going to have to reach out anyway eventually.  Who knows, maybe you guys are right and this will actually make me branch out and get some friends on my list.  I'm certainly not outraged by this and am still buying the game, but I'm not terribly happy about it.  Hell, I may never get to the point of doing raids anyway due to the time commitment in them.  My 2 cents.

Keep in mind that this specifically applies to the end-game raids

The band's name is Failure. They used to tour with Tool back in the day, and Ken Andrews went on to produce several albums in the early 2000s (Tenacious D, for example) and they have been making a comeback. Their best album is Fantastic Planet, from which this song was on:

Very good part as well with just one thing that bothered me.

Spoiler for Hiden:
There was a body on the floor indicating that Garret had killed someone while getting out of his box, seemed a bit out of place along with the humor of the moment

Spoiler for Hiden:
...which was a totally Joss Whedon moment. Body included.

Shown on the XB1

I guess that means Xbox will be the lead platform for Call of Duty this generation as well. This has been the topic of quite a bit of debate recently, with most people suspecting that the PS4 would get to carry the torch this time around. I wonder what kind of impact, if any, this will have.

Kind of cool that Spacey is getting into video games in some way, though I wish he would have done that in some other franchise than Call of Duty. Having said that, this trailer was actually quite nice, most of all thanks to his performance.



Actually, I found it odd the Polygon pointed this out.   I expected that the PS4 would be the lead console as well. 

It's blatantly the first thing in the trailer.

I loved the PSX games so I'm up for a new one.
