We have an EZA |OT| there, we welcome all the allies who'd want to hang out with us.
I may well end up sharing my forum time between here and there when registration opens up again :)
HOLY ****!!! 98 Opencritic!!
Hooo baby, this is going to be incredible
Predictions for next episode? Fame and Pomper die and Therese tries to save them while Necator sneaks out the back.
Whatever Ben anticipates doesn't happen
Thought I'd ask here as it's quasi-news related, do you reckon there is any worth to having a "rumour mill" thread? I just saw some rumours about upcoming Switch stuff that's pretty baseless, so it wouldn't belong in here, but still seems worth talking about!
@Acquiescence Yeah, it certainly felt like mods had very different definitions of what was worthy of a ban. I don't plan on posting there anymore unfortunately, I think the atmosphere has been swept away entirely. I've been looking at the outcome today on the site, and it doesn't feel like GAF anymore, y'know? I may well post a bit on ResetEra once that is up and running, but in the meantime, here seems comfortable enough! :)
@ParanoidRED Man I've got no idea how I'm going to balance Odyssey with Stranger Things 2, especially as I don't want to miss the zeitgeist and online conversation for either!
@TokyoSlim Don will be competing! It's finally time! :o
Bremner,Bird and Fortune - Bird and Fortunes mostly ad-libed pieces were a thing of beauty.
I watched "Bremner, Bird and Fortune" religiously when I was younger and never once realised it was ad-libbed!
Also, always happy to see a Father Ted fan. Pat Mustard is one of the greatest TV characters of all time.
]Hey folks! Not sure what the current etiquette is on TV show threads? I'd love to have discussions on a few different shows I'm currently watching, and didn't want to dilute the current TV show thread]
Please use here to discuss the current series of Jeff Probst's Fiji Fever Dream, Survivor! I'm slightly behind the curve with episodes as I get them a day or so after they air, but I thought the most recent Tribal Council was absolutely stunning. What are people's thoughts on this series so far?
@Acquiescence Yeah the bans has been strange for a long time, some obviously deserved it but what you describe doesn't seem like a valid reason.
Now that my account is ended I can speak freely.
I got my first ban when openly doubting the Kinect success after my first play test. I wasn't rude or anything, I simply thought the reports after the launch would be about how it didn't work properly (which it didn't for me) rather than how awesome it was.
Apparently that was a too unpopular opinion at the time.
My second ban was the strangest one, by Evilore himself ironically. I made a thread where I asked if I should buy the PS3 or 360 version of Skyrim. Pretty soon the thread were filled with PC talk and I eventually asked people to talk about PC elsewhere since I didn't have a PC at that time. Evilore stept into the discussion and thought it was okay for the thread I had made to go off-topic...
But that didn't help me one bit so I edited the OP and asked PC people to take the PC talk in a PC thread instead.
"You don't make the rules of a thread just because you started it."
First board I've ever been to where the thread creator can't decide what the talk in the thread should be about.
As usual every ban ends with other users on the mods side mocking the banned members and applauding the harsh mod style. Disgusting attitude.
There was a large amount of pressure in starting any thread to ensure it was watertight and you weren't going to be held responsible if the topic deviated, it certainly stifled me from starting many many topics.
I once did a thread about how amiibo could be updated to have on-board memory for increased capability, and got about 50 responses of "ugh I hate amiibo", with about 3 or 4 people actually responding to the topic at hand.
I imagine every moment of my spare time will be absorbed by Odyssey (with Stranger Things 2 fighting for a bit of space). If I need a breather, it will likely be a little BOTW or Fortnite: Battle Royale.
I'm planning on starting Witcher 3 after Odyssey is "completed", so that should take me into 2018.
Expecting a Dreams blowout, honestly, it's due now.
I'd also adore a new Buzz! game, especially given the introduction of PlayLink and the popularity of Jackbox Games as of late. Knowledge Is Power is a pale imitation, unfortunately.
