Today MTA Vs. Bordo and i'm so excited!

Last matches of the group stage. Next round the true fun begins. :P

Yeah. Do you know when would they be?

They usually take place mid-February. The weaker teams have been disqualified so the matches tend to be more interesting and rewarding.

PAOK is playing for their group's first place tonight. Normally first place implies a weaker opponent in the pool.

best time to go to theme parks is Monday - Thursday, and when all the little kids are in school. no lines today either.

I like a balance in crowd. Not too many people but not too few either.

Yeah too many kids can ruin the experiece. :P

I'm also pretty biased about the typical loud and disrespectful teenagers who think they own the place.

#456 Edited by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

hate those teens. thinking they are entitled to a certain seat on a ride. and talking loud as hell as if no one can hear them.

@Trail_Mix: Interesting. I've been into fighting games since the late 1990's. Do you also like the Tekken series? I do and I have all the games.

Sorry, I'm not really big on Tekken, or 3D fighters for that matter. :(

The only 3D fighter I like is the Soul Calibur series. Probably because SC2 was one of the very first fighters I had ever played, that and Guilty Gear.

@leon2365 said:

interesting. my post didn't go through. was going to say I used to be amazing at the old school fighters. but now im only good for MvC.

What'd ya used to play? (Besides the MvC series)

#458 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

@Trail_Mix: I used to play the original MK, killer instinct, super street fighter 2, KOF 99, and the last one I played with any sort of "skill" was tekken 2 I believe. after that, I never really got back into it. only play MvC now.

Yes and that means there is a chance of both MTA and PAOK to meet.

Oh wow. Quite a variety there. Now that I think about it, I've never actually played the MvC series myself.

There are less places to post on GS now. I'm freaking bored >:-(

#462 Edited by TAMKFan (32730 posts) -

@Trail_Mix: Oh, I see. I actually prefer 3D fighting games over 2D ones, overall.

#463 Posted by johnd13 (7986 posts) -

Yeah. Posting on OT and other GS places is no fun anymore. It it wasn't out of habit I'd frequent this place even less.

#464 Posted by chicknfeet (15625 posts) -

@johnd13: Honestly, I didn't realize how much time I spent in certain unions and How to GS. It made things seem a little more robust before. Now, I just post in GGD which is already slow. Gotta come over here to OT again to bug you all

I didn't believe that the site's redesign would take so many people away from us. It's not fun when most of your "friends" are no longer around. =(

All things considered, I think you're a necessary evil. =P

#466 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

go post in a "union board." get the ball rolling for activity. and advertising them would probably help as well.

#467 Posted by chicknfeet (15625 posts) -

@johnd13: it is kind of discouraging. Though it is kind of nice to connect with the people that stuck around the site. Smaller community makes for closer connections.

@leon2365: Once they get them functional, i'll give them a try. But as it stands right now, I don't really have an interest in any of the unions that migrated over

oh my gosh. i think this is the first time i've ever actually seen you casually posting. the only other time i've seen posts from you were in those "how to" threads i used to always refer to, back on the old site. lol

sorry, that was random

Happy Friday the 13th!

#472 Posted by Napster06 (5654 posts) -

Black Friday indeed.

It's been so long since I've been to the GameSpot OT forums... What ever happened to all the levels with your username?!

#473 Edited by Hiddai (6059 posts) -

Out of boredom i have finised CoD: BO, MW2 and MW3 from the beginning.

Yes lol. Actually there are just games that i feel really bad i don't have their saves anymore and these are Splinter Cell Chaos Theory and Double Agent.

#476 Posted by chicknfeet (15625 posts) -

@Trail_Mix:

I posted in other places. I just had more places to go on the old web site, so i didn't really need to wander into OT

Too bad we don't have any chili's restaurants here. I'd be a regular. :P We have other fast food stores though which are quite fine I guess.

#487 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

chili's was ok. though I prefer other smaller places.

#488 Edited by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

I've recently been getting back into wrestling. Used to be a fan of it when I was a lot younger, then I grew out of it, but now I'm back into it again.

Anyone else here a watcher?

#489 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

like you, I used to watch it when I was younger. have lost track of it as of late, and I don't think I can get back into it so easily. I have been watching too many other shows to go out of my way to DVR it.
