I just checked my topic history. It's 3 years. Kind of random that I pop onto this site again on this date. And you know,  20 minutes before the end of the day. So uh, I'm demman if none of you remember me. I found out about the game the May before it came out. I was Logan on the OG forums until like September. I had a graphics shop with Connor, Bambi, whatever he's called now. I spammed with Star, Amy? No clue what anyone is called at this point. Craig and Bob are still Craig and Bob at least. I tend to pop in on big dates. Last time I was on was the 1 year anniversary of these forums.

Well, I'll see you guys again when I bother to come onto the forums. Doubt I'll talk, but if you notice me, give me a call!

-Regards, Demman AKA the guy who doesn't come here anymore, but has been here longer than any of you. That's called Bragging Rights.

I'll copy last year's topic too.

"It was late March of 2011. I was a young boy who found a game called Fortresscraft. I decided to sign up on the forums, and hang out there for a while. A month after the release date, there was news of a different mining game coming to the Xbox Indie Game market. Total Miner. I ignored the news for a while, then finally decided to check out the website. I looked around, and there was less than 70 people on the forums. The most recent topic was created by the developer of the game Craig. I decided to sign up, and comment on that topic about how good the progress was. That date was May 26, 2011.

Now today, May 26, 2013, I have been here for two years. I have seen the high and lows of the website. The rush of members after the release, the highest amount of members on at once after the release of multiplayer, I waited the long months prior to 1.8, and even after the fall of the original forums, transferred over here.  I thank Craig and the other devs for all the work they have done. The testers, and others who have gotten the game prepared and released. Bob and Evesy, for being able to tolerate me, and finally, the members here, who have kept me on this website. Thank you for the fun times here."

That's probably outdated at this point. No clue. If this kind of post is against the rules, delete it. I dare you. You won't know what will hit you.

Have a nice year everyone.

Gaming / Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
« on: November 12, 2013, 07:23:32 PM »


Yes, a new LOTR game. It was just announced recently, and is going to be included in the December edition of Game Informer, and I will steal from their article- http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/11/12/december-2013-shadow-of-mordor-67498.aspx


"As movie audiences gear up for the next installment of The Hobbit, gamers now have their own Tolkien project to get excited about. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is on its way to a game screen near you on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Developed by Monolith Productions and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, we feel the upcoming game showcases some of the gameplay innovation potential now possible on next-generation consoles through its groundbreaking Nemesis System.

While many previous games set in Middle-earth have revolved around the major events or characters depicted in Tolkien's books, Shadow of Mordor offers a new chapter that fits comfortably between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Players control a lone ranger by the name of Talion as he journeys deep into the heart of Mordor in the days before it transforms into a blasted hellscape. Along the way, developer Monolith is exploring a fascinating next-gen approach to enemies, encounters, and storytelling, one in which every player shapes their own story through the choices they make. The Nemesis System assures that every enemy you fight is a named foe, and if they survive their battle with you, they continue to grow, improve, and act in the world, even as you attempt to do the same with Talion. Our cover story recounts our extensive look at the game in action, from combat and leveling to story and setting. "

I can't wait for more info to be reveled.

Gaming / Evoland
« on: July 24, 2013, 12:15:44 AM »
Evoland is an RPG released back in april. The game takes you through the life line of the RPG genre from simple 8 bit graphics, to stunning 3D battles and HD back grounds. The gameplay is very fun, and some parts is a turn based battle, other times an ARPG.

Throughout the game you find chests. The chests may unlock features in the game, cards to play a game, and stars that unlock something(I'm not sure). When you unlock features there tends to be a witty popup to go along with it. They usually make me laugh.

On to the cards. I'm not done with the game yet, but in the second town(?) there is a guy you can talk to. You can read the rules of the game, or start the first level, easy. I think I had all the cards up to that point, so I won each time up to the hard level. As suggested, it's hard. Not really a strategy I know of, just hope you have cards.

The merchants in the game are also cool. I'm saving up to get the DVD Player for the achievement. The merchants sell items(obviously). Watch out though, between the first and second town, item prices vary. In town #1, potions are 50 gili or whatever the currency is called, and in the second they're 150. The revival spell also costs different prices, so I recommend getting it in town #1 along with the first armor.

Spoiler for Hidden Content:
Currently I'm off to kill a dragon. Scorching up the countryside :/


It's $9.99 on Steam. I forgot to buy it at $5 during the sale...

As far as I've gotten, I'd give it a 8.25/10.


Also, there are bombs to blow up secret rooms and required areas. Familiar?

Movies, TV, Music, Sports, Etc. / Pac-Man Fever
« on: July 09, 2013, 09:09:07 PM »
PacMan Fever was an album released by Buckner & Garcia in December of 82. Arcade games such as Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, etc, were reaching their peak, hence the name PacMan Fever.

Anyways, I was browsing reddit and found a link to the album on youtube. To say the least, I've been listening to it the past 3 days.


Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL155E832DB2A9118B

My two favorite songs are Mousetrap and PacMan Fever.

The man with the music Santo Cilauro created a character named Zlad. Zlad is a musician. He is awesome. Two songs are known, Elektronik SuperSonik, and I am the Anti Pope. They're amazing.

Fun House / The Element Name Game!
« on: June 09, 2013, 10:55:53 PM »
This was a car game used by Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory. What you do is someone names an element, and then the next person takes the last letter of the element, and says an element that begins with what the earlier one ended with. It ends when there are no more elements with that ending letter. The last element said is the winner. No repeating elements!

Try not to use google! I know I won't.

I'll begin. Iodine.

General Discussion / How People Die on Mount Everest
« on: May 31, 2013, 10:54:01 PM »
I found an article about the deaths on Mount Everest. I was stunned by how many people have died climbing/descending the mountain. What I found most stunning is the story of David Sharp that the infographic tells. How no one even stops to check him just stuns me.

A quote from the wikipedia page of David Sharp
"Sir Edmund Hillary was highly critical of the decision not to try to rescue Sharp, saying that leaving other climbers to die is unacceptable, and the desire to get to the summit has become all-important. He also said, 'I think the whole attitude towards climbing Mount Everest has become rather horrifying. The people just want to get to the top. It was wrong if there was a man suffering altitude problems and was huddled under a rock, just to lift your hat, say good morning and pass on by'"

Anyways, here's the infographic.



http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2013-05/how-people-die-everest-infographic

What I find oddest is how many people have disappeared on Mount Everest. 15 people have just vanished.

What do you members think? About the deaths, or just about the risks of climbing Everest? I personally would never attempt it.

Movies, TV, Music, Sports, Etc. / Arrested Development
« on: May 26, 2013, 01:17:43 PM »
Arrested Development is an old show from 2003. It follows the story of a rich family who lost everything, and a son who has to keep them together. Anyways, the show is hilarious. Michael Cera plays the main character's son. Anyways, the show was renewed after 8 years by Netflix. Anyways, they make funny comments in most of lines, so you have to listen pretty closely.

The show gets better with time, and has me cracking up constantly.

Another note, Jessica Walter, the voice of Archer's mom in Archer, is the mom in this show. They're pretty close characters.
