Twelve Years

Sunday was my 12th anniversary on GameSpot. I honestly thought that I've been here longer. More like 15 years, maybe. I guess not.

I was kind of absent from this site for a few years, but lately I've been checking in almost daily again. I don't do much posting, but I still visit OT (and weirdly enough, the Political Gamers forum) to see what's going on. The forums don't move like they used to, but it's nice to still see some familiar faces from the good old days. If nothing else, it's reassuring to see Indzman still at it with the movie threads, and I do enjoy watching LJS tearing Trump diehards a new one in Political Gamers.

Hope y'all are doing well. Papa bless.


10 year anniversary.

Wowee zowee. Hard to believe it's been 10 years already (well, I'm a little late. My real 10 year anniversary was about 3 weeks ago, but I forgot, lolz). A lot of changes in the site over the past 10 years (mostly not good ones, unfortunately), but I still stop in once a day if only out of habit. I haven't been very active on the forums in quite some time, but I do still lurk occasionally and it's comforting to still see some familiar e-faces. Shout-out to my man, LJS for holding down the fort. Hopefully I'll start posting again with some regularity one of these days, but until that day, I'd like to give some thanks to everyone who has made my decade stay on here memorable. Assuming I don't die, the site goes under, or I get banned or for some reason, I'll most likely still be here in another 10 years. Cheers.



Wow... It has been almost a year since my last blog entry.

In any case, it would appear that today is my ninth anniversary on GameSpot. It's pretty crazy how the time flies. Since the crappy redesign, I don't spend nearly as much time on here as I did before, which seems to be the case for a lot of other users as well. It's still nice to pop into OT every now and then and see some familiar "faces" though, so to speak.

Hope everyone is doing well and hopefully I'll make another blog entry before my tenth anniversary.


Bloggy blogga bloggo

This is my first blog entry since the site makeover.

Soooo.... How's everyone doing? And how are y'all liking the new site? I personally think it's too slow. Things take a long time to load and I am not the most patient little bear.

Here come da change!

See you on the other side, guys and gals! ............. Also, I just noticed that tomorrow is my 8 year GS anniversary. How about that.

Won't you be my friend?

So I've come to realise lately that I hardly have any friends on PSN. This is probably because I hardly do any online gaming. But with the exception of wildcat2000, it seems like nobody else from my small handful of friends is ever online. This makes me feel like I'm the only person who actually regularly plays video games and that just won't do.

Long story short: Add me on PSN, you goons! My PSN name is also megagene.

Just leave me a little note letting me know you're from Gamespot. :D

Wowee Zowee

So look at that. I just noticed that I leveled up today. Now I'm Level 68: Song of Nephilim. I've never played any of the Xenosaga games before so this level name doesn't mean much to me, but it's still nice to be one step closer to level 70.

On an unrelated note, has anyone else noticed that all the top 10 lists of games (both on the front page and respective platform pages) have gone missing? Am I just crazy/blind? Can someone enlighten me? I know it's petty, but I like to know what games are most popular with the users of this site. I guess I'm just used to it...

Also Max Payne 3 is freakin' awesome.


So what's up with that Gamespot Fuse? Do any of you guys and gals use Fuse? Should I be using it? Any advantages/disadvantages to using it? Dear friends, I need your input please!

I've clicked on it before and it looked pretty neat, but I always quickly back out of it because I'm afraid that if I Fusify my profile I won't be able to go back to the old one. :(

Oh yeah, and I've also hit that level with the secret cow.

It's true. I am!

I'm Winner! It only took a year and two months, but ****ing Easter Egg is finally behind me. *tears of joy*

On the gaming front, my life has been consumed for the past few weeks by Skyrim. My life is separated basically into two parts: playing Skyrim, and not playing Skyrim. I honestly don't know what I'll do after I finally beat this game. I'll probably play Skyrim again.

Haven't posted much in the forums since the ToS overhaul (largely in part due to Skyrim). It'll be interesting adapting to the new rules. I've gotten so good at being a subtle asshat that I hardly remember how to be in your face anymore. Maybe that's a good thing. Subtlety is something of an artform.

k. Brb. Skyrim.

Be cool my babies.
