My final review of 2015! I'm pretty ecstatic about this release, I really feel like I did a good job with it. (In before I'm ripped to shreds for being dead wrong). A few days late too but I was a moron for scheduling it on Christmas weekend when I was away from home. I won't be doing that next year. Ah well. Enjoy!

Edit Multiple fixes have been added to the review including a spoiler warning.

ooh, this'll be a good read.

Bit of an eye opener article. This quote in particular: "America needs nearly 50,000 more truck drivers than it has, according to the American Trucking Association. Experienced electricians and plumbers are also difficult to find." I mean, I know truck driving isn't the greatest job but it still pays pretty well last I heard. 50K vacancies? That seems...unreal all things considered.

It looks to be related to job requirements being too high: "But some employers arguably have outsized expectations for some jobs. About 65% of job postings for secretaries who work for executives. But those require a college degree. Among current executive secretaries, only 19% have college degrees, according to Joseph Fuller, a Harvard Business School professor. That gap between reality and expectations has widened.

During the recession, employers had their pick of employees: there were few job openings and lots of available workers. They could raise the bar and demand more qualifications for employees. The tables have mostly turned now: there's plenty of jobs but a shrinking number of workers. Unemployment fell to 4.9% in January, the lowest rate in 8 years. Many economists consider such a low rate to be "full employment. Because there's a smaller pool of workers for employers to choose from, employers are forced to raise wages to help retain their employees."

Huh, something to do some more looking into I think. Thanks John Clark for the original article. 
The number of job openings in December was just shy of a record high and a reminder of the vast job skills gap

The part they aren't telling you is that what that they want 50,000 drivers for $12/hour ( the standard range is $12-28/hr ). If they really needed the workers , the wages would reflect that, instead of paying less than a call center job. The

The job market has gotten pretty weird in the last few years. There are a ton of jobs that sit open because they want unrealistic things. I recently interviewed for a job that wanted 10+ years of experience with Node.js, it was written in 2009.

January has overall been a bit of a rough start but I've managed through and I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I'm sure that'll only last a little longer ;).

Grey Goo has announced their latest DLC Expansion: Descent of the Shroud. Among many other features, it includes a continuation of the storyline of the original game with a whole new faction: The Shroud. And it's price? Free for current owners. They're releasing a Definitive Edition of the title tomorrow.

My review of Grey Goo is here. http://kingisaaclinksr.com/2015/12/29/a-paladins-review-grey-goo-i-review-so-that-others-may-play-good-games/ This announcement of an expansion has me surprised. Not only have they been updating the game since it's release last year, but now an entire content expansion? For "free"? Huh, didn't expect that. Though on the other hand, I'm kinda not. The original campaign has a feeling of cut content. So, I wonder just how much more story this will bring.

At least they finally cut the price to $30. I have little doubt that has been Grey Goo's barrier to entry to a bigger multiplayer community was the $50 price tag. Is $30 enough to entice more players? I guess we'll find out. I'm also hoping they've finally fixed performance problems I had but I'm not seeing any mention of it. Still, I'm glad to see another developer continuing to support their game long after most would. Even if Grey Goo has it's issues, they keep sticking with it. 
After the longest time lurking in the shadows, Grey Goo's fourth faction can finally be revealed! We can't tell you how excited we are. A big thanks to everyone in our community for playing and supporting the game, because we couldn't have done it without you! So, what is the Shroud?

This is some really great music for me to listen to as well. Though I might not have the preference for 80s sound like my friend Tobias has, I haven't been able to stop listening to it.
 
Just discovered Dance With The Dead via my friend +Samuel Haggren. Holy shit on a stick! It's like metal and synth had a beautiful superchild that cured cancer, farted unicorns and drove a supercar towards the sunset.

In short: I grew up with overly cheesy and epic 80's synth music and this perfectly captures the feel.

Trump being scared of Megyn Kelly from Fox News has to be the funniest thing I've read related to politics from the past couple of years. He can take on ISIS, he can make Mexico build a wall for us, but one person stands up to his nonsense and he runs away. It makes me want to meet her in person and have a conversation about politics, might be interesting.

(Trump didn't show up to the GOP's debate this Thursday because Fox News had Megyn Kelly moderate it again and he has had spats with her in the past. He demanded her removal and Fox News refused to back down and supported her instead).

And yes, I know it's a stupid publicity stunt of one form or another.

Not to fufill any stereotypes but those girls were giggling in the background. A lot.
You know, the Giggling Girls would make for a nightmarish monster in a horror game.

Been playing the Banner Saga and I just can't get it. I mean, the story is ok and the visuals are great but I can't help but think that the combat is just bad. HP for some reason is tied to your attack. So if you lose HP, you lose attack power. What? That's a mind boggling choice and it slows the battles down so badly. Becoming extremely long slogs. It mostly comes down to sending your warriors and whacking enemies multiple times until they finally die. All the while getting hit at range by the larger amount of enemies until...they're dead.

Maybe I'm missing something, it wouldn't be the first time. But the complete lack of synergies or, as far as I can tell, advanced tactical combat has really turned me off from it. Either way, I give up. I just can't deal with it. The story isn't interesting enough. Played it for four hours and I'm getting sick of sending warriors forward, attacking the enemy and hoping they don't all get killed. Ergh.

Uhh, no, it doesn't address my discontent with the game. Since it's a developer problem. I'm glad the guy has 5 reasons to play the game. But that's him, not me. A top 5 list isn't going to solve my issues with The Banner Saga. But thanks for adding the comment anyway Robin.

Currently doing a job washing bridges in Astoria this week and next. This is work for C&R. We've cleaned two and a half bridges so far. About...600 feet worth since Wednesday. It's a lot of power washing and it's more taxing than you'd think.

Great place for Thai food. Looked this up on Google Maps and saw all the good reviews which seem well justified! A great calm atmosphere, great looking place and friendly waiter. Plus, the Drunken Noodles were really yummy. Mushrooms seemed like such an odd choice but it worked well. I hope to visit here more often as I recently moved in nearby and was hoping there would be some good Thai food around. A definite recommend from me.
