Forums, we have them: July 2010

2:00 PM on 07.05.2010 // Zodiac Eclipse

Greetings kiddos! It's once again time for our monthly forum breakdown where I bring you all the hip happenings of my beloved basement dwelling brethren. Grab yourself some sugar tang and get comfortable because this month was jam packed with excitement.

First things first, you may recall that last month our buddy lv99ron was dealing with some medical issues. This month I'm happy to report that he's been released from the hospital and on his way to recovery! Yay! More after the break.

In other news Anthony Burch and Ashley Davis got married. The forum team would like to congratulate Ashley and Anthony on their wedding and the many happy years which will surely follow.

June was a busy month for gamers. E3 fever hit the forums hard as everyone scrambled to make predictions, wish lists, and ultimately come to terms with the coverage. Notably, the 3DS Idea Thread, Kinect in 3 words or less, and the slightly more legit Kinect thread are worth checking out if you missed them.

This month also saw the beginning of the FIFA World Cup which brought all the soccer fans out to the Official Football/Soccer Thread to talk some trash and share hilarious vuvuzela related memes.

Coonskin05 kicked off his epic adventure to travel the U.S. Spending the night in each of the 48 contiguous states and meeting whatever Dtoiders will have him along the way. Check his travel itinerary and see if he'll be rolling your way soon.

The Steam Sale thread has been hopping lately as everyone rushes to pick up some daily hotness at discounted prices. Swing by and see what games your fellow community members are buying so you can properly fill your friends list.

Once the sale ends you can still pick up some deals in our new Bargin Bin thread where the thrifty have been thriving this month.

If you haven't made plans for August and live in or around the Midwest now would be a great time to check out the Cedar Point NARP thread and see what Ol' Bloodspray has in store for you.

Speaking of alcohol, BritToid has reopened the Pub for all our friends across the pond to share a pint whilst prattling on in their funny accents. Jolly good, I say.

In unofficial community podcasts news, Podsumaki finally hit their 10th episode and gained access to their very own, highly coveted, forum badge! Congrats guys.

Two new community podcasts were also launched this month, which could be a record if I wasn't too lazy to investigate this claim. At any rate, Doctor Who fans rejoice! TARDIScast is a real thing that has happened and should be listened to with ears. Meanwhile, not to be outdone, the crazy LA kids have crafted their own LAPDcast where they discuss... things pertaining to LA and how cool it is living there. Apparently it has Gobun, who I'm told is semi internet famous now.

Through all this The Bar was steadily gaining pages. This month marked the 5000th page of one of our most revered threads and to celebrate Sam Spectre treated us to a kristenbell.gif-a-thon which brought the thread to a crashing halt. Once the mess was cleaned up and the smoke had cleared, forum citizens looked out over the new bar landscape and knew that the best was yet to come.

Spoiler Warning! Thanks to the clever thinking of ClownBaby members who aren't using the “Also Cocks” forum skin will no longer have their gray text spoilers spoiled for them. Putting your spoilers in white text with the [MRD][/MRD] tags around it will keep your secrets safe. They had great success with this in the Red Dead Redemption thread already so now it's time to take it to the next level and make this an official practice. Quick word of caution, if you subscribe and read the thread via email in plain text the spoilers will still be visible so proceed with caution if you spot the [MRD] tag. Thanks again for the idea ClownBaby.

Meanwhile, at stately MOD manner, the forum team has been hard at work narrowing down the list for the soon to be a thing, Legendary Dtoider Badge. Your patience is appreciated while we dot the i's and cross some t's to finalize our selections. In the meantime forum members will be happy to discover that thanks to Changston asking for it, you guys can now send PM's to 5 people at a time rather than just one. Think of it as our little gift to you for being so swell.

That pretty much concludes my recollections of what happened over the month, but feel free to add to the comments if I've overlooked something. Be sure to tune in next month when my Co-Admin and better half Mxyzptlk will bring some order and dignity back to this recap. Shirt and shoes required!

Some Black Friday artwork arrived today ! [img][/img]

Black Friday is getting to me. All these games I kinda, maybe want that are at anywhere between respectable and deep discounts, but I'm not sure if I want to bite. I'm wondering if Godzilla's worth $12? After checking review scores, I'm not sure.

Black Friday slowly seems to creep its way onto Continental Europe, but I'm not complaining! I managed to get my grubby little paws on a new physical copy of The Wonderful 101 for €20! Thanks, America!
Archelon avatarArchelon
Community Question: Since I missed yesterday, I am going to do something a little different today. Are there any questions you would like to ask me for a change? If so, please feel free. I may add a second Community Question later today, as well.

Isn't PES 2016 Free-to-Play model just the demo with extra crap thrown in?

Damn Gumo, you cold as fuck. [img][/img]

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.

How is the Lightening thread STILL GETTING COMMENTS!?!?!? P.S. I am trying to make Chex Mix, but we lost my special recipe I custom designed. sucks man.

Got a deal on a Surface Pro 3 model that I wanted. Now I just need a deal on a PS TV in Canada and I'm golden.

If you in the UK, don't have a PS4 and don't mind buying used/display goods there's a few reconditioned PS4 (12 month warranty) on amazon for £199.
SirDavies avatarSirDavies
my dilemma this black friday is a PS4 for bloodborne and little else or like half the games on my steam wishlist. I know in my heart which one I'm going to pick.

"You had all the lasagna you could ever eat, yet you kept going!" "This isn't about the lasagna anymore, Jon, and I didn't come this far just to quit! Tonight, I'm making sure my name will go down in history!"

Got DeSu2 Break Record from GS' Black Friday sale ($29.99). Love the Arrange CD. It's been far too long since I heard Meguro do something that wasn't tied to Persona. Also grabbed an extra copy of Freedom Wars since they were $5.
Jed Whitaker avatarJed Whitaker
Haven't been around a few days. Getting over a cold and working on a review for Superbeat: Xonic on Vita. Starting to feel better, I think / hope.

So I'm almost done with my first play through of Undertale and... It's okay. It's in no way bad (and I'm enjoying it more than Fallout 4 which in also playing) but feel... It was overhyped I suppose? Not sure really... Maybe a second play though will help
Agent9 avatarAgent9
Sometimes I wonder why I care. To simply have more vitriol and misery as my reward, to suffer ingrates and fools. That in all I do I'm never afforded the same respect or kindness. Let it be then, and let pain follow. I'm done with this shit.

I was telling this dead baby joke at dinner tonight, and this lady I don't recognize says, "I'm sorry. That joke isn't funny to me, I have two dead children." At this point, I went over my options in my head and settled with telling her the joke twice.

I really wish the slowpokes at Microsoft would add Forza Horizon to Xbox One backwards compatibility.... It's my favorite racing game. And the soundtrack is honestly flawless.
