    Vanguard Screens 2:50 pm-

    Beta 5 is live. With it the nda is gone. I offer up screen shots from the game. My computer is mid range I guess. It should be noted these screens are from before beta 5 and that is why it looks like my character is attacking with no weapon. He is attacking with a longsword. Beta 5 since has fixed it for some it appears. I still can not see the helmet I’m wearing. 35 shots total, these are my favorites:

    One Two
    Three Four
    Five Six

    The game runs like shit. It chugs and it is not playable as far as I’m concerned. I can run lots of nice looking games and for what it looks like there is no reason it should chug the way it does. It’s also not fun. Which may be from the chugging. But the world and characters just lack personality. Again this is all my opinion. But Vanguard is not the game for me. It’s going open beta here real soon. And retail by the end of the month. In it’s current form I don’t see it lasting long. Good look and good riddance.

    So wrong.

    What American accent do you have?

    Your Result: The South
     

    That’s a Southern accent you’ve got there. You may love it, you may hate it, you may swear you don’t have it, but whatever the case, we can hear it.

    The Midland
     
    The Inland North
     
    Philadelphia
     
    The Northeast
     
    North Central
     
    The West
     
    Boston

    Saw this on Lum’s and was to funny to pass up. This kind of thing is why I’ll never get to the level cap in WoW at least not at my rate of leveling:

    Sedudai The Motivational Speaker

    My favorite (and I’ve added it to my random quotes up top):

    [Guild] [Sedudai]:God I hate people. There is not a bus big enough to run over all of the people I hate.

    Classic.

    Hurray a beta invite to Vanguard Saga of Heroes. I love beta invites.

    Dear Turk,

    We are delighted to extend this invitation to you to participate in the Vanguard: Saga of Heroes beta Phase 3. Below are the instructions needed to get you started on a path towards Telon. We have made the process as painless as possible.

    Here are the required specs for Vanguard:

    • Windows® 2000/XP
    • 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible computer
    • 100% DirectX compatible keyboard or input device
    • Processor 2.4 GHz Intel processor or 2400+ or higher model AMD processor
    • 512 MB RAM
    • Vertex and Pixel shader 2.0 compatible hardware with 128MB of texture memory
    • 100%DirectX compatible sound card

    After you have completed the download of the launch pad, please open that file and run the vanguard.exe from inside the winzip file. This will create a Vanguard icon on your desktop. Run that file to begin the download of the actual beta 3 files. Please be aware that your download times may be long!

    Should you experience any problems or need more clarification for any of these instructions, please contact us at customer support.

    Sincerely,

    Ug. I was excited until this bullet point:

    • 20 Gigabytes Hard Drive Space

    And then they go on to tell me:

    Please be aware that your download times may be long!

    No shit, huh? I sure hope that when this thing is done that when people buy it in stores they don’t need 20+ gigs for the install. 20 gigs is what? Four or Five dvds? That is just crazy. But I suppose that is they way of the future.

    This is the first and last post I talk about Vanguard. As anything in the future is illegal as long the non disclosure agreement is active.

    Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You? 5:34 pm-

    Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You? which I found at Gawain’s gives me the same empty update as G’s.

    Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

    Ceaselessly struggling for a well-deserved redemption, you carefully arrange your alliances and energies.

    There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.

    G’Kar is a character in the Babylon 5 universe. Worlds of JMS has a character profile for him.

    I have no clue really if this is good or bad. There is no option to be Wash.

    Edit
    I’ve done this before way back in 2003 and so has G.

    Signature Training 12:48 am-

    Yesterday we had a Signature Training follow up meeting. Now since I’ve only worked at the hotel for a few months I missed out on the first part of the training. This training was held from 2pm to 6pm, which sucked for me because it’s right in the middle of my sleep times. It was another one of these training programs that spells out common sense down to the letter.

    As it turns out we also use the Mystery Shopping that Signature offers. This is where people from this company call the hotel and go through the process of booking a reservation with whomever is working to make sure they are following their Magic Formula. Their Magic Formula is 16 steps that the hotel has stripped down to 6 steps that guarantees a 100% Mystery Shopping score. Which to me sort of shows the flaws in this Magic Formula of theirs.

    The best part of all of this is that they record these calls that they make checking up on the hotel. The hotel can call a 800 number to listen to the recorded calls to see how they did. You simply enter in your 5 digit hotel id and you can listen to all the calls for your hotel. Or you can alter the 5 digits to listen to other hotels calls. Which in itself should provided hours of entertainment for me when I’m bored.

    But it is a good thing. I’m rusty as hell when it comes to my dealing with the guest skills. I had built up a hate for all guests in the years that I worked at the worst hotel ever. So even though it was all common sense, it was needed (in my case) to put me in the right perspective.
