    Hello, my fellow internet wanderer. Chances are, you've wondered in here because you are a...


    <p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v469/Handmaiden_Yane/Misc/n00b.gif" height="300" width="300"></p>



    But you know what? That's okay! Eh? What's that? You don't know what a n00b is?

    Thank you, Lois. But anyway, onto the whole purpose of this FAQ. You, as a n00b, need some guidance! A helping hand in a lost and dying world! We're to help. Well, sort of. We in Gamez: don't like redundancy and don't generally like people who try too hard to fit in...but if you keep your head about you and act smart, you'll fit in just fine.

    Reposted so the html remains functional in EV's absence.

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/19951122/]Here is a link to the previous Index thead[/link] for reference (also so Yane can find the last few thread addition requests and such).

    We need to either expand the GCN section to also include Wii titles or make a separate section for it (probably best to combine, ala GBA/DS or XB/360):

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/24972404/]Metroid Prime 3: Corruption[/link]
    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/23851076/]Red Steel[/link]
    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/23858669/]Super Smash Bros Brawl[/link]

    A PS3 section will probbaly be needed as well.

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/23982664/]Ubisoft presents: Assassin's Creed [PS3 | 360][/link]

    and for the DS section:

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/games_videogames/b10005/24687199/]New Super Mario Bros.[/link]

    I'll reorganize it hopefully this week to add the new sections. A major overhauling, though, is scheduled for my fall break which is in about three-four weeks.

    Maybe the "lease" of that domain name expired? This worked fine for me the other day as well.

    I'm using my school's server and someone must have gone in and deleted something they shouldn't have. I'm working to get it back up on the same server or maybe I'll have to relocate it. I'm hoping to have the problem fixed within the week.

    I think the problem is that I'm the only person here that uses it and so it doesn't feel all that useful so it committed esuicide.

    Someone needs to change the Index link up top. And replace it with this.

    If you click at the top of the page where it says. Games Forum Link: it leads you to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Games:_Board_and_Videogames/b10005/19951122/]this locked topic with outdated mark up/links.[/link] Can we get that changed? Or is my browser having a brain fart?

    Why do all the current/forthcoming consoles get a sticky thread, but the PC doesnt?

    Mainly because the systems are launching soon (well, 360 has been out, but it's part of the same console war) so the stickies are meant to make them most visible as traffic for such discussion increases as we go from the launch into the holidays, when they'll be most useful. A couple months after that (at this point, we're thinking after the Euro PS3 launch), they'll be unstickied.

    So, basicly, the aim wasn't to have a sticky thread for every platform out there- which is one reason why the DS and PSP threads weren't stickied, for example. And you don't want to have too many sticky threads, otherwise you start to lose the point of them to begin with.

    i dont know about other people but usually its the stickies that my eyes just dont acknowledge, i just dont see sticky threads ever because its usually forum rules and stuff so i dont even pay any attention to them. I hadnt even known there were console war threads up there untl just about a month ago.

    So basically you are saying you don't follow forum rules.

    I check the forum rules EVERY DAY just in case there is a change. That is why I am a RESPECTED MEMBER of this community.

    Funny thing with that is, I think the console wars threads have only been up there for about a month. Give or take.

    Hello,

    Star defender ( http://www.fungamesplaza.com/pd-star_defender_ii.html ) is a great game; anyone knows other games in the same style? I am specially interested in high quality remakes after old hits such as Galaga, Space Invaders, etc.... These games are great, and I would like to have as many of them as possible.
