    How's life?

    Hey guys, after an overly long hiatus I'm making a bit of a return. As such I figured it'd be nice to catch up as I haven't talked to a lot of you in ages and I know life has a tendency to take off. So for my (brief) update, I'm more than halfway through my second year at Uni as a Biology and Computer Science dual major. It's a difficult and strange mix but I'm enjoying it. Currently I'm doing my second bout of research in Biology and in Comp Sci I'm in a game development class where my team and I are making an interesting version of Pokemon. I still play League of Legends as my primary game but I play Overwatch on the side now and again. How have all of you been and what's been the big events in your lives recently?

    Pokemon!

    Ahhh I have a 3ds from the first wave so I'm pretty happy with it. I have Omega Ruby and Smash (multiplayer wise that is) I don't want to restart my Omega Ruby though since A) I use Wonder Trade ALL the time and well. I've gotten super lucky. (Shiny level 100 Sylveon, Shiny level 100 Altaria, Shiny level 100 Tyranitar) and I actually managed to hatch my own shiny Eevee (ironically an egg of the Sylveon's) so with those alone I don't want to restart it XD

    Pokemon!

    So I recently got back into Pokemon and naturally had to grab me a copy of Omega Ruby, so which of you lads and lasses play? I'll add anyone just leave your friend code below! (I'll add mine eventually)
  7. Hmmm guns you say. Well I do like my Borderlands to almost no end. But I enjoy Zombies in CoD World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops 2. CS:GO is a game I'd like to get into but it's difficult and my muscle memory isn't currently good for shooters. :|

  9. Well like I said above, it's just what you would/did you prefer if you have drank it. It's all theoretical type things, even if you don't care about it. I put the FPS games in because that is something everyone basically has an opinion on, while MOBAs are more of one game or no game.
  10. Okay so this is like. A sequel to my other topic, but instead focused on pronunciations of words. Mostly cause I couldn't add this to the other topic. Questions 19-25 are names from games.
  11. "Show me your bling and let me shine you!" "I have no idea what you're talking about... and your suit sucks." "OOOHHH LET'S DANCE" -Pre boss conversation between Dimitri and Sly in Sly 2 https://youtu.be/hOHhfhAPToM
  12. Well my thought was that even if you don't directly have some of these categories (i.e. the smart phone or FPS questions) you would still have some of an opinion. For Coke vs. Pepsi neither of those are really my cup of cola but when it comes to a soda debate it usually is Pepsi Vs. Coke (you could even go by brand in general and look at what other sodas they make.)
  13. There put a clarification for Physical vs. E-Book
  14. I chose winter personally cause I like the cold and snow. But it's a site of gamers and winter gives us an excuse to stay in sooo yeah XD
  15. So there are a ton of major "A or B" questions of our time so this is just my zone to discuss this. I'm really curious which is more important. Here is the key for things if they are hard to get kind of. Question 3: Over Under Question 7: Hoodie Crewneck Zip Up Question 17 Physical Example of E-Book If you have any questions about any of these questions feel free to ask! Or say why you like your choices.

    Holy... this was my first post in this beast of a topic. That's 3.25 years I've spent posting in this topic alone and 266 pages.... So many friends I've made in part due to this topic, and site in general. It's so weird looking back like this, seeing how I've grown and change. The ups and downs along the way.. god damn.
  17. This is correct, mostly. Where you are wrong is that Master and Challenger ONLY have one rank, they don't have a 5-1 like the others. Instead you endlessly accumulate (and lose) LP. The difference between Challenger is that Master can have any number of players inside of it, while Challenger is on a 24 hour (I believe) rotation, only the top 200 players (based on LP) can be in there per day.
  18. Dear noob. Stop being noob. Thank you. ;)

  19. Really what I love the Wii for is just the great party games, and for Legend of Zelda of course. Honestly though PS4 is SUPER tempting with KH3 coming soonish.
  20. Also does anyone know what is with the link on the word "Playstation?" I didn't put a link there.
  21. Yesterday (March 17th, 2015), Nintendo made an official announcement about several things. The first of which was the production of their newest console, the Nintendo NX. All that has been said about this by Iwata (Nintendo's President) was that it will be a new "dedicated game system...with a brand new concept." Little else has been revealed about the console and it seems we will still be a bit in the dark on this new machine until most likely 2016. In opposition to what the article (link at bottom) says, I personally believe this will be a new "version" of the Wii U due to Nintendo often re-releasing consoles but with something different or updated about them (Ref. The New 3DS XL and the Wii without Gamecube controller slots (what was the point??)) There were possible rumors of a "Nintendo Fusion" a fan made nickname, which would be akin to the Wii U, but with more power and on board memory, more of a console that would be meant to compete with the other two giants, Playstation and Xbox, as opposed to filling it's own little niche. The second thing that came up was something that honestly makes me quite happy. It is fairly common knowledge that emulators run rampant on PC and mobile devices, with even some of the younger kids (like third grade) with Gameboy emulators on their iPods/phones. Nintendo finally has wizened up to this and while they have adamantly fought going into mobile gaming, have finally decided to bring games to mobile phones, tablets, and (the most exciting for me) to PC. What their plan is is to create a sort of cloud based account, that lets you log in on your 3DS, Wii U, Tablet, Ipod, PC or NX to play your games (? I'm going strictly off the small amount of information I have.) For me this is wonderful since I don't exactly have the money to buy a new console. Or really any console. So if I could play all these games from my computer that would be amazing, there are so many games coming out or that are out that I really want to play but just can't. Well that's a little sum up of Nintendo's recent announcements. What are your guy's thoughts on these announcements?

    My top college didn't give me the full ride scholarship I applied for. But oh hey. How generous. Thank you for the fucking "generous" scholarship. Because making me put all the effort into writing and making two of my teachers waste their time in writing recommendation letters is TOTALLY only worth a scholarship worth approximately 1/8 the value of the one I wanted. No actually it's closer to needed. Not completely needed, but I mean. With three older siblings who my parents helped all of them go to college, and one of which has been going for 6-7 years and is just getting his first degree this year, it would have been great to have gotten that scholarship.
  24. The Curse of the Sad Mummy - Riot Games It's weird, it's sad yet.. so emotionally charged with that sadness but also with an energy.
  25. Personally I'm pretty excited for the full release/open beta for Heroes of the Storm seeing as in recent times MOBAs have been my go to game style. As of now it's only in closed beta but from what I've seen and heard they're trying some interesting things I'd personally like playing around with. Otherwise I haven't seen too many games that really pique my fancy, aside from Legend of Zelda Manjora's Mask, which came out a couple of weeks ago. Have any of you gotten into Heroes of the Storm? I'd like to hear some other's opinions on it.
