The Queue: Billie Eilish’s mom has got it going on

Maggie Baird is a writer, an actress, and a songwriter and singer. So it’s a bit reductive of me to call her ‘Billie Eilish’s mom’ like that, but the song lyric demanded it. So, to be clear, she’s written and performed a movie soundtrack, won multiple awards, and has an impressive IMDB page. She also does a great job providing the voice for Samara, who is objectively both welcoming and terrifying.

Samara is one of my favorite squadmates in ME2, especially on this Vanguard playthrough because we can combo biotic almost anything to death, and she’s actually just a really cool person, if somewhat tragic. I’m still amazed anyone ever picks Morinth over her, but I guess some people really just want to be killed by a vampire Asari.

The Queue: Self Motivation

One of the most common questions you get as a professional freelancer is how you can stay motivated. I have to confess I’ve been having some trouble with this lately — I always tend to get a little sluggish at this point in the year due to the lack of sun, but the general, you know, everything right now has made this winter especially trying. I do tend to do better with staying disciplined and in a routine rather than trying to work up the motivation, because I usually don’t want to do anything. However, I’ve found a little lifehack lately that really cuts through that 2:45 brain fog.

It’s coffee. The lifehack for staying awake is another cup of coffee.

This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we answer just as soon as we’re done brewing this cuppa. Yes, another. Don’t judge me.

The QA workers of Raven Software, a division of Activision Blizzard, are unionizing

The QA employees of Raven Software, one of many studios owned by Activision Blizzard and the makers of Call of Duty: Warzone, have voted to unionize, asking the corporation to voluntarily recognize them as a union. Raven's head Brian Raffel has already announced a restructuring at Raven, breaking QA up so that instead of one department they'll be "embedded" into other departments.
