Hello? Anyone out there ?
This is beginning to seem a bit bleak guys .
Well, Happy New year to anyone who might be reading this. Hope everything is well for you. Other than me no one seems to have posted anything since August . Is this the end?
Ah, it seems I've returned at a good time. Happy New 2017, Dis (and Tweeg if he shows his avatar anytime soon!) Nah, Skynet hasn't defeated us all just yet.
I'm still using public computers since making the decision to live without the net at home. I like to think of it as a digital detox, ha.
Did you receive any gaming gifts or gadgets for xmas?
I didn't this year, just mostly cash in cards, but I did receive a few films. That underrated 90s action flick set on Alcatraz island, The Rock. Still Bay's only genuinely good film. Red Dwarf series 1-4 and Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children in time for the anticipated PS4 remake which better live up to the original in some regards. Worth watching if you ever find the time. Best place to view it and loads of other old films (2005 was 12 years ago bloody hell) would be stage.vu and make sure you find the english version. There's many uploads of foreign languages on that site.
Look at this. I found out Michael Biehn was on Wogan once in 1991. That story about not really working with Arnold is one he still tells people nowadays almost word for word LOL. Ahh, legend of his time.
Welcome back Nog! I was beginning to thik this place had finally croaked . Wasn't expecting to see any replies here . In a little bit of a hurry so will post a proper reply very soon!
P.S. Happy new year!
Apologies for the late reply Nog. Been a hectic week!
I didn't get any gaming gadgets for xmas, but my folks bought myself and all my brothers breathalisers . She was worried about any potential for still being over the limit the day after any partying, so we can now test to make sure .
Ah The Rock, a true classic! Haven't seen it in a few years but it's definitely Connery at his best!
Just watching that Biehn vid and hearing him say "I'm kind of a favourite of Jim Cameron". That didn't last it seems .
Speaking of Jim Cameron .....this may amuse you http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-e...r-arnold-schwarzenegger-genisys-a7540526.html
I'm pushed for time at present, but i'll return later to extend my post hopefully. Those breathalisers sound like a good idea if you have a mild booze addiction . Have you ever been pulled over for dodgy driving after a night out?
What are you playing on PC or PS4 these days? Did your brother ever lend you Metal Gear Solid?
I just registered one of those game code slips from Dark Souls 2 which earned me 1500 points. It's a shame the Namco Bandai site is offering me zilch for that amount
Whatever happened to Tweeg and Diamond, etc? Maybe we should send them a PM?
Does someone pay to keep this site going or is it free? I remember being on a film forum a few years ago and the moderator once mentioning it costs him $40 per month.
Lol no I haven't personally ever been pulled over. I am always careful to not drive any time soon after drinking. You?
What sort of things are offered on the Bandai site for higher points?
Not sure what happened to Tweeg or Diamond. I don't think Diamond ever came back after the site under went updating and the passwords all got reset. If I recall correctly the site wasn't accessible for a while when it was undergoing the update ....perhaps Diamond thought it was dead and never tried it again? Seems unlikely, but it's been a long long time. Tweeg himself hasn't been on in a year I think. He seemed to have a lot less time when he got that new job. Maybe we should send some pm's indeed!
I think Dick runs the site, if it's being paid for then he is the one doing it. I assume there are some moderators for the site, but they don't seem to frequent it either. Dick did put a lot of work into the refurbishment so it's odd that he hasn't made an appearance either.
Ill try to send a pm now anyhow.
I don't own any form of automobile, so I don't have to worry about that. Indeed, The Rock is very good film. I like how the villains turn on each at the end other rather than follow the generic formula. I remember seeing it on commercials around the time Euro '96 was on TV and wanting to go see it at cinema, but sadly I wasn't 15 at the time and couldn't convince staff there either... HA no chance.
Euro '96 was arguably the closest England ever came to winning a tournament surely? Since 1966 world cup of course. Could have won penalties if it was a little more organised with who took them.
The items available on Bandai site had mostly sold out. I wanted Dark Souls keyring/clothing, but all I could see there was soundtracks and mousepads from dodgy Jap RPGs. So which games have you been playing over past few months? Have you ever experienced Half-Life series? I recently purchased The Orange Box which is a compilation of those games plus Portal. I never knew Tony Todd provided a few voices in Half-Life. He's one of the villains in The Rock who gets impaled on a steel pole and was Candyman in the 1992 horror flick which I haven't seen for yonks.
