#16522672 10 years of Chozo Sanctuary

Posted by Admin Prime on 19 June 2016 - 04:08 AM

10 years. Let's put that into amount of time in a bit of context:
  • The Luminoth Temple was open for 1 year, 6 months, and 18 days.
  • Nintendo NSider was open for 3 years, 9 months, and 24 days.
  • 10 years is roughly the entire duration of official Nintendo fan communities on the World Wide Web, going from the original Loudhouse up to NSider.
Furthermore, 10 years ago:
  • Metroid had recently released its 6 game in less than 3 and a half years.
  • The Wii and PS3 were exciting new consoles still months away from launch.
  • There were only 386 Pokémon.
  • Cammie Dunaway hadn't even joined Nintendo.
  • Matt, Boz, Craig, and Peer.
  • The biggest online console game was still Halo 2.
  • The most recent Call of Duty was Call of Duty 2: Big Red One.
  • 3D Realms, Clover Studio, Factor 5, Hudson, Midway, Pandemic, and THQ were all still open.
  • Half-Life 3 is gonna be really great guys!
  • Duke Nukem Forever is never coming out, is it?
  • Windows XP was the most recent version of Microsoft Windows.
  • Neither Gmail nor Facebook had been opened to the public, and wouldn't be for another 7 and 3 months respectively.
  • Justin Bieber's first single was still nearly 3 years away.
  • Torgo was still like a million years old.
  • Spam, EP, and Mega were active community members.
But more importantly, in that time we have:
  • Posted 118,378 times
  • Created 8,631 topics
  • Registered 718 members
  • Shouted more than 350 Sakuraaaaaais
  • Gazed upon 117 horse dicks
  • Fucked 100 penguins under bleachers
  • Who's That'd a shit-ton of Not a Pokémon (that I can't be bothered to count)
  • Hunted nearly 90 Googles
  • Pixelled more than 50 Pinks ( ;P)
  • Posted 7 other lame anniversary topics
  • Skipped 2 anniversaries, cuz fuck em
  • Rocked one awesome community
I wish I could say or do more to thank you guys for keeping this place going all these years. You have no idea how much it means.

#16522920 Top 25 Things that are Currently Annoying Me List (and more lists)

Posted by Prowl 1701 on 09 July 2016 - 11:30 PM

Top 25 Things That Are Currently Annoying Me List

 

1. This "Buford" guy, he seems to be all over the forum.

2. Finally getting certified to work in a new field and then finding out nobody is hiring

3. 2016 seems to be the year of everybody shooting everybody.  Madness

4. Not one of you fuckers wished me happy birthday :P

5. Mighty No. 9 sucked

6. Actually having to practice at Overwatch to get better at it (the very idea!)

7.Waiting for the lightsaber I ordered back in March to come back in stock.

8.The zombie hookers that keep trying to give me blowjobs

9.Having to wait until the end of September to go kayaking  again. Love kayaking.

10. Days Gone and the new Spider Man being PS 4 exclusives

11. Nintendo not doing more DLC for Mario Kart 8.

12.  Having to choose between having some free time or having extra money to play with.

13.  Writing lists

14. My roommate and his GF not having any understanding of how a light switch works apparently.

15. Seriously, why are the lights always on when I get home and NO ONE ELSE IS THERE!!!

16. Plant not recognizing the awesomeness of The Exorcist.

17. Where the fuck is spameroo?!

18. The new Titans Return Transformers line taking forever to get to MS.

19. The fact that either Trump or Clinton will be President.

20. People that drive 30 mph on a 40 mph speed limit road. (I just want to run them into a ditch.)

21. Young people that look confused when I try to explain to them how awesome A Flock of Seagulls is.

22. Young people that look confused.when I try to explain to them who A Flock or Seagull is.

23. Crimson Tide fans

24.Co-workers that don't understand basic common sense.

25. Running out of toilet paper and realizing that my roommate has taken my last roll of toilet paper.

 

Top Ten Things I Absolutely Love Right Now List.

 

1. The guy right behind me when I'm driving, that has his brights on because he somehow knows that I want to read.

2. Plants level-headed concise well thought out calm posts about anything that causes a debate on the forum.

3. Police road blocks at 3:00 in the afternoon.

4. That guy out in the parking lot in front of my apartment, that blares his rap music with the bass all the way up just so I can jam out while I'm trying to sleep.

5.  Those wonderful 4th of July fireworks that people were doing all the way from July the 2nd to July the 7th.

6. That 110 Degrees heat index that is ever so much fun in the MS summer, because sweating is fun!

7. That guy whose turn signal has apparently been on since 1985.  It's good to know that he eventually plans to turn left.

8. My family letting me know at the last minute that I have to help them with several time consuming errands.  Thus giving me the opportunity to spend more time with them. There is nothing like spending time with family.......I hope.

9.Overwatches awesome and super fair Bastion character. He's easily the most balanced character in the game.  I'm astounded that he ever gets kill of the game. I love his turret mode, he can't move, and that puts him at such a disadvantage, only fools use it.

10. That wonderful new Metroid game that is exactly what Metroid fans wanted and will usher in a new age of Metroid fans to the series. Prime will be the first one in line come launch day!

 

Top Five Games I am Playing Right Now List

 

1. Mega Man *series* (always tops my list)

2. Overwatch

3. Mario Kart 8

4. Halo 4 (co op)

5. Hydro Thunder Hurricane

 

Top Five Games I am Hyped For List

 

1. Mafia III

2. Song of the Deep

3. Zelda: Breath of the Wild

4. Left 4 Dead 3 (it will happen, IT WILL HAPPEN!!!!) *there's the nurse with the sedative again......*

5. A metroid game that doesn't suck (it could happen, IT COULD HAPPEN!!!)

 

Top Ten Reasons I'm Making these Lists List

 

1. I'm bored

2. I haven't done one in a while

3. None of you thought of me on my birthday?!

4. Morgil will at least get a chuckle out of it.

5. I can fuck with Plant

6. Maybe Spam will come back to read it (I can dream!)

7. Reeeeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllllllyyyyy bored

8. I needed a break from Overwatch pissing me off

9. I like to make sure every knows I'm not dead.

10. I'm coasting on the nostalgia of when these were actually funny.

 

HAPPY 10 YEARS CHOZO SANCTUARY!!!!!!!

 

I consider all of you friends. :D




#16508000 Amiibo Hunt

Interested in amiibo? Did you just buy a new house to contain your expanding collection? Then subscribe to this thread! Its purpose is to be a clearing house for availability/deals/tips/trades for amiibo. Find a rare amiibo available somewhere? Post it here! End up with an extra one that someone else might want? Let everyone know! Need that special amiibo and are willing to pay shipping? Ask for it here!
 
I'll endeavor to keep this first post updated with two things: Tools and resources for tracking down and checking availability of amiibo, and a list of who wants what, for anyone who's out and about and comes across a motherlode. It's left up to individuals to arrange shipment/payment, though. Please play nice, this isn't eBay. ;)
 
Post your resources and info, along with wants and haves, and I'll update this post as I can.
 
Stores that you wouldn't expect amiibo to be in

Tools and Resources

  • Someone wrote a script that tweets whenever stock or prices change on amiibo at Amazon. Follow @amiibo_tracker to get updates.
  • amiibo subreddit (Lots of good info/insight. Clearly not a well-kept secret).
  • Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (unsure how often updated, YMMV)
  • Another Google Docs spreadsheet with amiibo store availability and comments (again, YMMV)
  • Target Inventory Checker (thanks to Prime for posting this and the numbers)
    • Target DCPI numbers for amiibo

Have or Want
Some basic guidelines on the spirit of the "Want" list:
This is envisioned as an easy single place to look and see if someone's looking for an amiibo that you've come across. If you post your wants here, know that there's an expectation that you'll pay someone back for it, along with shipping. Of course, it's up to the individual who bought if they want to gift it, but I doubt if anyone's expecting this to be a, "buy it for me!" list.
Also for purchasers, this list doesn't mean, "buy it at any price", since anyone can do that. Its intent is to have a way for someone to grab an amiibo at MSRP for someone who doesn't have any in their area. Best to buy from stores that have an easy return policy, if need be.
Neither the Amiibo Hunt thread, nor its creator, nor the CS administration team is responsible for working out the details of amiibo transactions. Those can be taken care of in PMs. Public displays of appreciation are approved of. :D

#16524868 CS is back! More or less.

Posted by Admin Prime on 17 January 2018 - 08:18 PM

So, did ya miss us?

It seems GoDaddy implemented a range of long-needed updates which proceeded to... well, break just about everything. In the process they appear to have done some sort of back-up and restore process on our database which ended... poorly. Long story short, we restored everything from a back-up dating back to November of 2016, meaning all posts/topics/PMs/etc.. made in the time since have been lost. I'll try to see if GoDaddy has whatever back-up they were working off of on their side, but for the time being, just assume that all of that content will be unrecoverable.

Some other notes: we (yes, actual "we", not just me pretending not to be foreveralone.jpg) have been talking about getting the side moved/updated/etc.. If and when this will happen, we don't know, but if it does expect more changes than you may otherwise think. Perhaps a move to a new old domain? Like I said, nothing is set in stone. We'll try and keep you posted.

#16520667 So... What are you playing? (general discussion)

Posted by torgo on 17 March 2016 - 02:17 PM

I've been playing an unexpected game, "Plant's Text Adventure" on my birthday. Here's some exciting screen shots (spoilered because there's 9 of them, and they're all fairly tall).

 

Plant's texts are in grey on the left, mine are (fittingly) in green:

Thanks again, Plant! I appreciate the "game" and the prize!
