God, why is GameSpot so slow, buggy, and painful to navigate now? :/

Welp, I guess I'll see you all in another year or three.

Hazel! How you doing man? Stick around for a bit. We just got this new Lounge and swj hasn't stunk it up too bad yet. Who knows how it'll smell in a year or three. If you hang around you'll just get used to it :P

Haha, we'll see. Been busy with the army though. Maybe in a bit, and definitely after I get myself a sexy new signature that's sure to get me suspended again. ;)

Dude. :( People use these forums at work!! :P

Anyhow, wow, I would of never pictured you in the army! Good for you man.

Haha, well, I DO need something to do when I'm sitting in classes. I'm still a university student too, you know.

I'll sit my ass in front of photoshop and see if I can think of something.

Where have you been ?!?!?! :O

Arkham Knight is a real dumb name and also doesn't seem to make sense? You can't just mash batman shit together, guys.

Also, reminder that Arkham City was lame.

I loved Arkham City.

But yeah, Arkham Knight doesn't make sense, but does it really matter? It is just branding..

I needed something to be negative about and the name is all I know.

Lol good answer. I honestly think the Arkham brand is just dumb. It made perfect sense for the first game, but the other game's stories have only suffered because of it. Everything Batman does in a video game now has to revolve in or around the nuthouse? Seems limiting. And yeah, this one just sounds silly.

That trailer was awesome though, right?

@Terrencec06: Ok I just checked it out nvm @MrSelf-Destruct lol. I still have to enjoy Arkam City still. I'd play the Arkham series straight over the AC series. Just sayin... But lol at the South Park Sitck of truth review. Regardless of it getting a 7/10 I still want it lol.

Yesss lol. Im just saying man. I feel that the Arkham series has been worked on more than the ACreed series. They already have 3 titles already out but I can deal with that more than dealing with ACreed series have over 6 titles out.

Original Xbox >>>>> 360 and One . . lol safer to say that here than on SW.

Where have you been ?!?!?! :O

Lots of life stuff, my friend.

  • I'm still a full time student at UBC, Vancouver on my 3rd year studying Political Sciences now.
  • I decided to join the Army of the Canadian Armed Forces because I felt like a badass (and I wanted the job experience to be a part of the local Police department when I'm old enough).
  • I've been going out with my GF for over three years now, so things are srs business now.
  • Got my own apartment and car a year ago, so that was fun

Three years flew by, I guess. Glad to see you guys still here. Makes me really happy to see the Lounge again. I'm sure a lot of stuff's changed with you guys, so I can't wait to catch up.

Yeah same here bro. Im in a relationship, just got my apartment and car and I finally decided I want to go to college for Fire Science to be a Fire Fighter. Took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do in life but Im still young and ready. It's really good to see you man. It's funny because we just made this lounge lol.

#168 Posted by MrSelf-Destruct (13142 posts) -

Decided to give windows 8 another shot. I still hate it. I have to stick with it this time, though, because this is the future, right?

#169 Posted by hazelnutman (9688 posts) -

Any updates on some of the old regulars? Scianix-Black? Yokofox? Mushroomherb?(to name very few)

#170 Edited by MethodManFTW (25780 posts) -

@hazelnutman: Scianix and Mushroom are still on PSN but not on Gamespot anymore... To my knowledge, maybe they have some alt they haven't told me about though. :P Yoko still posts though.

@MrSelf-Destruct: 8.1 right?

I dunno why though.. I don't want South Park and the game looks incredibly simplistic.. I do love me some funny games though.

Ah - at least they're alive and well. Great to see you again, MethodMan! One of my favorite games played during my hiatus was definitely Persona 4. God, I did nothing else during that entire summer break. Here's hoping they eventually port P4Golden to the PS3/PS4, because I don't plan on getting a Vita anytime soon.

@starwarsjunky: Not sure if I'm back yet, but hell - I'm here for now. Also, very nice avatar. TK is the best.

Hey buddy! It's been a while! Doing good, but it looks like there's been a lot of changes here. Still, I'd love to try to get back in the groove again. This community is just way too strong.

But it looks fun and enjoyable. Even the most simple titles are awesome.

#177 Posted by MethodManFTW (25780 posts) -

@hazelnutman: Yeah... Probably not, knowing SEGA, but that would be awesome.. Maybe Vita TVs will be priced well enough in the west that they could be a viable Persona 4: Golden machine.

qq. i'm teaching myself how to code in my spare time now... Not really for game development per say, but that shit is complicated.. Though I'm sure once things start to really click it is much easier.

What program?

#183 Posted by hazelnutman (9688 posts) -

The biggest problem for me was that I tried to use a 3D game engine with C++ going solo. I pretty much bit off more than I could chew. I highly recommend looking into either Java or Python. Not only are they easy to learn, but are really effective at creating programs/games without 3D rendering. I still remember how I recreated a classic Final Fantasy ATB system from scratch. Really fun stuff once you get things clicking. I was literally addicted to working on my program.

I'm doing some really basic Java and HTML stuff at the moment.. Eventually I'd like to give Ruby or C++ a shot.

Holy shit, son! Good to see you round these parts again. Glad to hear you're doing well.

Hazel AND Yoko!? Surely the gods are smiling on us this day. Now wtf are Scianix and HURD?

Anyway, Kevin Conroy is back and Gotham is 5 times the size of Arkham City. Thank you, Rocksteady.

I haven't seen Hurd in years. Scianix and Jerk be in the cut. Still in touch with each other till this day, but be in the cut.

You know what. . . We need to have a LBL Reunion.. Try to get as many old dogs in here as we can.

I don't think I have Scianix or Hurd's PSN name. I miss them boys.

Hurd hasn't been on PSN for over 6 months. Ended up letting it go due to cleaning up inactive PSN's unfortunately.
