    Dearest Friends,

    It has recently dawned upon us all that Games is really, really, awful. It's populated by a bunch of nonsensical donuts who almost exclusively talk about how awesome Battlefront 2 will be, and who make redundant threads time after time after time.

    Ever since those utterly woeful "Summer Games Tournaments", Games has lost all the witty charm and banter, all the things that make it special, all the people who actively contributed to making us into a little community have moved on, and the only person who can really be bothered anymore is the quite excellent Mr. Quest.

    Connemara is now gone, so we can all now game freely without her persistently angsting at our collective brains, but what do we do? We all run off for the summer and do our own thing. Chim is playing Guild Wars almost ALL THE TIME, Venture has just dissapeared, Sesfan and Kurt are scarcely around at the moment (and won't play with me because I lost my copy of Halo) and rarely post, Pat never turns up on AIM these days, Flare is far too sober, the list goes on.

    So I lobby all of us; Lets bring the community back to games, put the shining qualities back into the place, and make it a place we go to not as a chore, but as a place we can go to just have some plain fun (involving mass spamming, the shouting of Chim Love, LOTS OF GAMING OF GAMES THAT ARENT GBG, and singing and getting drunk with too much TS).

    It starts tonight on AIM.
    All of us gamers, if we all stick together, we can find a new home, a shining forum... called GAMES.

    I expect I'll be at university or asleep (it's currently Monday 11:45 PM).

    And here I thought I was the Games mod people wanted to leave ;)

    Though I feel I should point out that I don't think Games has gone down hill since the summer games tourney so much because of the tourney itself, but rather the 2 or 3 bits of drama during the tourney that basicly soured everyone's spirits. There's a distinction there I think should be made, in case that perception might have been shared by anyone here (and if not, ignore the above). I honestly haven't been following the JO/JA tournament so I'm not sure if thats gone any smoother or not (though I can't really see how it could end up anywhere near as bad as the GBG...)


    Anyhoo, I should be around to participate tonight- at least on Teamspeak, though I might try my luck at a game despite my still frelled up keyboard and mouse issues.

    I probably have a few things I could say, but I'm heading out at the moment, so...nah :p I think I'll be online tonight though, so I'll catch you guys on it. Might be on AIM in the library later today, so feel free to IM me while I'm studying.

    I fully endorse this idea, and told Rich I'd be there. But I got called into work, it being Labor Day and all and the town is full of tourists. If you are all still at it when I get home Ill join in

    Well as far as "gaming" goes I've decided that I give up on PC games until I get a new PC. Ever since I upgraded to XP it is too much to run that plus games. I even have probems running JK. :( For the community of my friends I will try to make an effort to get back in the grove. One sure fire way to get me interested is make more spam threads or bump old ones, FB etc.

    I had some issues prior to school's start. Then school started and I am now trying to get back to my schedule. Buying Fable this weekend didn't help. When I play RPGs like this I get real anal and have to check out every nook and cranny. So pretty much this weekend has been multiple simulated sex sessions,lots of killing, buying lots of properity, and getting myself and everyone in the taven drunk and

    Bow chica bow wow.


    Edit: I think we should have a group theme song for this revival and I was thinking "THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN" cause we are.

    And I think Quest is right. Those tourny's that went south dampaned my spirits.

    I have Fridays off. And except for a little BF2 on a... non-internet-enabled computer (sic)... I don't game like, at all.

    JO would be a good game though I'd play that.

    PSU is win, but I've henceforth decided to return for evar. I tarnished my previously undisputed position of "first poster to read the forceboat threads entirely EVAR" with the infamous "Horseboat" thread, and I plead guilty for that. But I'll mercilessly crush any poster who mentions that unfortunate event again. So we're square. To conclude...
