There we go, got that out of the way.
The post title really is just about the fact that just a week or two into his new position I have already had one of my part time employees up and quit on me.
Turns out that the guy had some sort of bad issues with arthritis and all the work that was required of him was just too much to handle. Thus, when I become fully staffed I am now back to being just kinda sorta staffed.
I was told today that after a month or so they would look at the hours and decide if they were going to replace him or not. Here's to hoping the guy who just started this week makes it longer!
Today before work I put an hour or so into God of War Ascension and am quite enjoying it.
Doesn't feel as hard as GoW 3 and the controls don't appear to be quite as smooth at times but I'm really enjoying the new moves and enemies. It's quite satisfying.
The biggest complaint that I currently have is that they did away with the whole "Save Point" system though and now the game just has checkpoints where it saves itself.
Yes, that's the more modern way to do things and save points are pretty much antiquated at this time but I always enjoyed save points because you could create multiple save files. I guess I'll never out grown the RPGer in me.
I read up a little bit on the trophies and it appears as there are only 1 or 2 of them that are Multi-Player Trophies which is a good thing for me.
In order to play the MP portion of the game you have to use your Online Pass, which I can't activate because it gives you 48 real time hours to earn double XP. So, when I finally activate it I want to make sure that I'll have the two days off of work and other commitments so I can put a good amount of time into it to take advantage of the Double XP as much as possible.
Still trying to find a way to secure one of those sexy red systems without causing too much of a dent in my pocket book.
I can trade in one of my systems.
I can trade in all the games.
I can justify a certain dollar figure towards it because I was planning on upgrading my hard drive anyways (and the new one has a 500 gig compared to my 80 gig).
But, it's the difference between those two figures that I need to find a way to make up or justify!
First World Problems my friends.
