You seem thrilled I'm still here :P

I may not post as much, especially with me starting work soon, but I'm doing what I can to at least keep OT's Roll Call going.

Which is better: getting an Xbox One or all this?

I got all this on Craigslist for $170. It feels like I stole it, but maybe I just got a helluva deal. I've been debating getting a 360 over a new gen console like Wiiu or Xbone because I had one before having to sell it. When I heard Live arcade games didn't transfer, I knew instantly that I should get a 360 for sure... but only if I could find one at a good price. I called this guy day-of-post and he was like, "come on by."

Now I can play Super Meat Boy and Metal Arms again! :)))))))

plus the added entertainment value Live has to offer makes me love the purchase even more.

the only thing that was holding me back from buying a 360 was the fact that outside of what I already own and played, I don't want much else. I only had Reach, 2K12, and Fifa 12 before selling my first 360, but now I have all these games and kinect (which I will not use). I kinda wanted to jump into next gen, but I couldn't see any reason to for at least another year.

My first day was actually Wednesday. You know whenever you call like a customer service line and you hear the phrase "This call may be monitored for quality assurance"? Basically, I'm the one who'll be doing the monitoring. It's my job to see that the employees are following proper protocol, and in turn, see that the staff aren't harassed by customers. I've been training for a few days, and I'll be monitoring calls by next week. Not a bad job, but it makes for a long day. I'm out the door by 5:30 am, and I don't get home until about 6:15 pm.

@hallenbeck77: Wow, those are long hours. Those call center jobs aren't my favorites but at least you ain't lifting heavy boxes or anything.

I did my fair share of that when i first started working right out of high school. Did warehouse work for a local department store chain, and worked loading & unloading tractor trailer trucks for UPS (Under Paid Slaves, as it used to be called when I worked there) for about a year and a half. I don't miss that one bit.

#71 Posted by DeadMan1290 (15502 posts) -

@hallenbeck77: Ha, I've done the same, warehouse work, heavy lifting, loading/unloading, but I'd take a call center job anytime over that... And McDonald's....

The funny thing was, during the time I was out of work, I even applied to McDonalds, Wendy's, and Jack in the Box out here, and I couldn't even get those. Maybe they looked at the past jobs I had and thought I was overqualified, I don't know. When you can't even get a job flipping burgers, that screws with your mind a bit.

I don't see it getting better any time soon. I do hope things will change later this year though. They still haven't brought levels back yet.

Levels should still be coming back. There has not been any update with information contrary to that. I say patience and polite reminders that you care on the Bug Reporting & Feedback Forum is the best way to handle this. We still have those points from the past level system, so sit tight.

Wow roll call used to be a lot more active...

#90 Posted by Iszdope (9747 posts) -

No shit Sherlock.

#91 Edited by randallchris75 (11 posts) -

the Forums here are nearly dead.

#92 Edited by zmanrwks (12561 posts) -

decided to visit the forums after forever to see how active it is.

but it's so quiet. the roll call thread has barely any posts in it... was hoping for more signs of life.

sorry if this post is beating a dead horse, just making an observation.

#99 Edited by Judas_ (312 posts) -

Which reminds me..............Would you rather be burned alive or get eatn by a wild animal?........

Ha! Damn keyboard..........was about to post with "animal" reading as "anal".........

#100 Posted by Chow_Mein_Kampf (6651 posts) -

So do you think about anal a lot?...........

Got to say that I'd rather get eaten by a wild animal.........At least I would give nutrition to some animal..........

Don't think my charred remains would get eaten........
