Every morning I wake up early to drive an hour to work. Once I get to work I buy a Redbull to keep me up since I don't really sleep til late. I walk over to my desk and turn on my computer and start watching people complain about the game that I work on. Same thing everyday... gets really routine. Now why are users so angry... I've never seen a video game where the players were happy and understanding of why something broke. They don't realize that oh crap you guys are working with 50 other people in getting this to work within a 3 week time frame. For those game companies out there with great Customer Support, keep it going. No matter how great your customer support is, there's always going to be the one douche that writes that angry CS ticket stating WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS SUCK GO DIE MY CHARACTER IS BROKEN. How bout you look at it this way. We want you to play our game in order to make us some money. Don't you think it would be top priority if a player can't play our game... WE LOSE MONEY IF YOU CAN'T PLAY! If your character in World of Warcraft got stuck and you weren't able to log into him, you don't think Blizzard would be like Eh... Who cares about him. NO! If they fix your character you will continue to play the game and play the subscription of 15 bucks a month. If they left your character broken and not giving a crap about whether you can get back in to the game or not, they lose out on 15 bucks/month. 15 bucks a month may not be that much, but trust me... they care about every dime and nickel that comes their way. So the next time you're in a game and something's broken, don't rage that the company supporting the game "Purposely Broke" your character because we want you in the game as much as you want to be in the game.

Also for you hardcore ragers, it's going to end up being more expensive for you if you can't control it.
And that is my 2 cents for the day. :)

Flying Fish!

Hey guys,

Just browsed through reddit and found this awesome clip. Remote controlled balloons!
How come they couldn't think of these things when I was a kid... I would look like a loser if I was playing with one of these and having the time of my life. Retail $39.99... 40 bucks for a balloon... but people will still buy this I'm sure.

Check out the remote controlled balloons here:

Now... back to work and listening to users complain about how crappy our game is...

Welcome to my Blog! :)

This blog will be about anything that comes to my mind, whether it happened to me or just something I read.

First off to start, I went to the gun range for the first time in my life this past weekend.

It looked a bit like this picture but dirtier with empty shells all over the floor. Holes everywhere from the walls to the ceiling. I've seen many "funny" clips of people handling guns and getting smacked in the face due to the recoil of the gun. Anyways to progress, my friends and I entered the gun range, there was a lot going through my mind, would I be able to handle the recoil of the gun? How loud would the gun be when shot? If I screw up is someone going to get extremely injured? Yeah, I was acting like a little girl, but how can you blame me? It was my first time going to a gun range.

We went through the next few minutes like normal, got ammo and rented out a Glock. 9mm I believe. Went into the gun range with the goggles and earmuffs. We played rock, paper, scissors to see who would go first. I believe I ended up going last. Anyway, I was preparing myself to blast the first firearm of my life. My turn came up and as I held that gun to the target, I slowly pulled the trigger. It kind of felt like when you pop balloons, you anticipate the loud BANG that's going to happen as soon as you pop the balloon, but worse. As soon as I pulled the trigger BANG, and I jump. HOLY CRAP that was crazy. As I stare in awe at the gun, both my friends are laughing their asses off due to the fact that I got scared. I take aim again, bang, bang, bang and empty my clip.

Anyway, I realized like popping a balloon, guns are scary at first and after the first time, it's not that bad. That makes this place a more scarier place. It's so easy to shoot something after you shot once.

Some crazy stuff...
