@Allicrombie: True and after all, family comes first and foremost. I'm sure he'll pop back up in few years just to say hi.

@uninspiredcup: it's like I don't have anything better to do other than drinking my last bottle of Jack Daniel's cola whiskey of the day for my sleep now.

What a strange sentence.

@uninspiredcup: the stranger the mood or a sentence,the easier you can tell people apart,it was 3 AM when I wrote that,so I doubt I need an autofill right before I go to sleep.

Now let me remind y'all what time zone I live in,it's UTC+07:00,which means I'm 7 hours ahead of the West Coast.

@Smashbrossive50: How does that compare to GMT or whatever it is called that takes it's 0-point somewhere in England?

@horgen: it's all the same really,I believe GMT is a British time system,presumably in the Greenwich median,outside that,it's UTC,which is coordinated based on locations outside UK,take a gander.

UTC = Universal Time Coordinated

I'm getting old too. :( My 12 years account wise is in like two weeks.

I knew about this place before it was called gamespot though xD

Wasn't it originally called VideoGames.com or something? I recall hearing about that, but by the time I found this site, it was already called GameSpot.

I haven't seen Zoid since like... Uh, 2009? Been forever. I wonder if he will recognize me.

Yep, I recognize. That's probably how long it's been since I've been here regularly. After high school I toned it down on the whole internet thing. You had a boyfriend that also had an account too at one time. right?

Ahh so the one where the players actually do exercise for 90 minutes through continuous running with no ad breaks? :P

Just teasing

@ianhh6: I see, you're taking the worldly view.

Whereas, in America (especially this time of year), they refer to it as "huge men fighting for 60 minutes over an odd-shaped ball, interspersed with several commercial breaks". :P

@metalman0616: Yup! Soccer's big here in Spain, as it is in pretty much the entire world (and growing in popularity in the US). I'd probably enjoy following football, but there's no way to watch the games here and they'd all be pretty late for me anyways.

I've just never understood why they call it football too... Handegg is a charming name for a sport! :P

@ianhh6: Well, technically its "gridiron", but nobody here calls it that.

On a side note, I've always found it interesting how sports are popular in many parts of the world, but not the US, and vice-versa. For example, we have the four major men's professional sports here: basketball, ice hockey, baseball, and gridiron football. Basketball has gradually become popular world-wide, so that sport is something that people outside the US may be able to relate to. Ice hockey, as far as I know, is only majorly popular in the US, Canada, Russia, and some Scandinavian countries. Baseball only has professional leagues in the US and Japan, although there may be others in the Caribbean I don't know about. And gridiron football in its current form is something only professionally played in the US, whereas soc- erm, football is more prevalent in the rest of the world.

Despite all this, I still watch World Cup, like I did last year.

Don't ask me; this is the first time I've posted here in five years. But looking at that "Top Posters" list is giving me flashbacks to the glory days of RC. Something tells me they went off to greener pastures.

Hi,

My name is Fernando, I'm a web developer. I have registered on this site for two reasons:

1. I like the videogames.

2. I need practice my english (my native language is Spanish).

It's great to meet people, and if you want to learn / practice Spanish, can talk to me and learn together.
