Deezer, you are truly a legend. I'm so glad to see you keep this place running 😎

Can I have my title changed from Neocon to literally anything else? :( I don't want to be associated with the political views I had when I was like 14 lol.

I stumbled in here after realizing it was the site's 25th anniversary. I gotta get Trainman on here lol.

I'm eating Papa John's on the 11th floor of an apartment building in Beijing, Haidian district.

I'm happy for you bro. (Not sarcasm, glad to hear from you.)

Also, I'll tell Trainman to come and drop in. An early 2000s reunion would be pretty neat!

That's a good point. The internet was more pick and choose back in the good old days. Specific, specialized sites were the norm, whereas now everyone goes to big aggregate sites like IGN, Kotaku, GameFAQs, etc... And definitely social networking has sorta put a damper on forums especially.

If anyone remembers Trainman, I still keep in touch with him as well. Good to see a few familiar faces around here though!

Not sure if enough posts were made to fill all the categories.

I remember back when I was active here, I was the original showrunner for these awards. This quote is depressing as hell...

Also to answer the question of why Meowiest Post is in there, you can blame me and my ridiculous obsession with cats back then for it. My username was Meowrik back at that time haha.

Not sure if anyone remembers me, but I was super active wayyy back in the day, under the name of Meowrik/Meowrio before changing over to this username. Spent a good chunk of my junior high years on this message board. That was like ten years ago...
My fiance and I spent last night looking up old Livejournal/Myspace/etc posts to show one another how dorky we used to be, and part of my showing was looking up my earliest posts on this site. I figured I'd drop in and say hello again, see who's around. But it appears to be a ghost town. I guess specific message boards can't survive in the year 2014 :(

For anyone who cares, I'm 25 now, engaged, and am working as a medical lieutenant/EMT at the fire department. I DO have a 3DS as well as a Wii U, and SM3DW and DK:TF were fantastic. That's about it.

Hey kids, it's about time for my annual trolling of the forums. here's a picture of me with some bagels on St. Patrick's day. I look forward to working together with you all, real soon.

I don't see a need for making threads that seem to be solely for the purpose of riling people up to get a reaction out of them either.

apparently, you don't know the purpose of a troll, now do you.

Forum Games / The Miyamoto Game
« on: December 17, 2009, 11:50:52 PM »
Let's celebrate the simultaneously most brilliant and senile game developer of all time with his very own forum game. It's easy. Here's how it works.

Just follow the basic template. Miyamoto was doing random everyday activity A, which influenced him to make game B.

You see, one day I was clipping my nails when I realized how wondrous it would be if I were to find a way to make personal grooming fun! This is how I was inspired for the creation of Wii Clean.

But why stop at something simple like that?

When I was a young boy I enjoyed roaming throughout town. However one day I witnessed a grizzly murder by a masked man. I was determined to discover the identity of the masked man, but never did. This led me to think, how much fun would it be to create a Super Mario detective game? And so, my idea for Mario Case Files was born!


Step 1: Envision idea for new big-name game.
Step 2: Begin developing game.
Step 3: Cut corners in game development.
Step 4: Release game
Step 5: Pretend to be joking when pressed about lack of effort in game

All this, hot on the heels of the flying-Peach-skirt-Wario-farting-two-Toad controversy...

Seriously, I can see it all now when Galaxy 2 is released...
'Ah yes, well we originally looked into recording orchestral music for Super Mario Galaxy 2 just like in the original but decided not to. We realized in order to do that we'd need to have one of the percussionists in the orchestra playing a bongo drum for every song in the game because of Yoshi!'

Following this, the droves of nintendo fanboys will declare whoever said this was joking again, and label everyone who refuses to believe it a racist bigot who does not understand the cultural differences between Japan and apparently the rest of the world.

My costume started off as Johnny Cash on one night at a party...

About 2 people out of the 40 there recognized it, so the next day I had another party to go to. I left the guitar home and brought sunglasses and went as Neo.

Within 10 seconds of walking I heard "Hey! Neo, right?" It's good, they're both cool.

I sure am glad Nintendo decided to make Peach unplayable since the developers would need to program and animate her dress. I mean that's a ton of effort, how could a game development team ever hope to put in enough effort for something as complex as a dress? I wouldn't want them to stress themselves out.


Because apparently all you need for the best holiday lineup is a console rehash of a DS game, an updated version of a game released a year ago, and a portable Zelda sequel.

I can greatly respect a man who admits he got a joke from elsewhere. Nothing's worse than a joke-stealer/recycler.

Invite him over for a party, but have it really be an intervention. That should get his attention.
