Aegis, I'm pretty sure everybody knows I'm partially blind by now. -_-

Meh, no wife, or child in my life. No real interaction with people, these days. I might be changing that in a minute detail, but I don't think my options are ever going to improve, sadly. But I am an uncle, and will soon be a great uncle! ;)

Also, Davers used to be Hounder. He requested his name be changed back in 2007, when we were still recording all that stuff.

Good to see you, Davers.

...don't we have a friend code list for Switch users?
*runs off to check*

Last time I heard anything from him was on IRC server (I might bet incirrect about it being a .org, though)

Oh, [email protected] It's the Flying Dutchman! ;D

I'm doing good, all things considered. How goes the child raising and married life? ')

Chris Miller should join the Discord server :o

I would certainly like to see someone doing something interesting with overhead fantasy. Nothing specific comes to mind though.

Amusingly enough, I'm working on an idea like that. However, I don't feel like it has enough substance to it. Still trying to work that out before I get anything coded. Plus graphics are a pain to get without moneys. :o

News / A few things to note
« on: December 03, 2018, 07:22:07 PM »
Since KingofHeart had to push the issue to the point of me having to ban him not only from Discord but from the forum, as well, I feel something needs to be reiterated.

Ever since I first joined GU sixteen and a half years ago, there was a constant that was set up for ALL of GU. Not just the people here for the projects, or the ones here for the RPGs, or whatever. This place was Switzerland. Neutral ground. Flaming and trolling is not allowed because this is a place where people are supposed to be able to basically leave their various problems at the door and not have to worry about being picked on or laughed at. This has never been truly successful, but we've tried. And I'm just as guilty as the next person of going against that, but I've tried to keep it to a minimum.
Some people are going to find this pill hard to swallow, but I consider the GU Discord server as an extension of this website. And thusly, the same rules apply there that apply here.

To explain to those that may be unaware of what I'm talking about, late last night, KoH got into a heated debate last night with someone else, and ended up calling them a moron. And for the record, said person did the same thing KoH has done on a (barely) related topic, which was to base some from what was in a Youtube video. Now, unless it's from a channel directly linked to a major game company or a well know gaming news site like IGN, I wouldn't hold a candle to water on anything posted on Youtube as being truth, but that's not the point. A member was attacked, and KoH didn't even think anything of it, until later. 
Then, this afternoon, he decided to insult another member because of their gaming experiences. And once again, he felt like he did nothing wrong. Granted, there were about five members chatting at the time, so it was easy to misunderstand when getting yelled at about it, but everyone in chat was basically in various stages of requesting and/or telling KoH to stop. At this point, I'd told him myself to stop or I'd remove him. And so I ended up having to remove him. The ban on Discord is for 24 hours, because I ike to be fair and give people a chance.

However, he decided that since he was silenced on the Discord server, that he should post vehemently here on the forum about it. And when I removed his post, making it obvious that he shouldn't have done it, he posted again, and this time an even longer response. I should have set him a PM about it, but I had RL issues to deal with, and the ban was already placed on here, so he wouldn't be able to read it, I think. That ban is for two days.

I will say this now. This is not Youtube, where you say all the nasty things you want to. And there are no exceptions to this. I fully expect to be called out on it if I do it. And when you are told to stop, for the love all that is holy, stop.

Cover Story / Re: Atari VCS up for Preorder.

Don't support that console trash. They already scammed people who bought smart watches. High odds they'll scam you with the Atari console in one way or another.

As I said on Discord when you mentioned this on there, that Smartwatch scam was not from Atari. It is clearly marked as being started by someone else, operating as FMTwo Game Inc. Furthermore, the "Atari version" was listed as one of THREE versions. Check the campaign yourself here.

Please fact check your videos before you make claims of things like this, folks.

News / Discord? What's that?

Well, since I've gotten multiple requests over the years, I finally registered an account with Discord and set up a server (I hope). I'm new to this place, so bear with me if something is wrong.

Keep in mind that this is not intended for a replacement of the site. I have mentioned that I have something planned, and I do plan on implementing it, as soon as I'm comfortable with all the technology I plan on using for it. The Discord server is more of a replacement for the IRC server, really. We can chat in real time, like the good ole days (yes, I know, I'm old).

Still here, but barely hanging on. Most of the active members have developed this thing called a life and jumped ship, at least temporarily

Hopefully my master plan won't fizzle out, this time. <.<

A heads up for those (like me) that were interested in LISA, but never bought it: the latest Overwhelmingly Posistive Bundle on Humble Bundle has LISA in it.
