@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.

if anyone doesn't feel like reading it nintendo is releasing a small NES clone which is preloaded with 30 games(and a pretty strong lineup at that). there are a few drawbacks, you can't open the cartridge slot, so no playing real cartridges, it won't be able to connect to the internet and download new games e-shop style, and it doesn't come with a power source. it comes with a usb power cable, but you have to supply the source.

 

i'm personally very excited.

Actually a real smart genius man, but I'll never show it.

Apparently the controllers are like 10 bucks and can be used with other video game consoles. Or so I heard.

I think it can only be used with like the Wii U VC games and stuff, but in general it's pretty rad.

 

I'm almost definitely going to grab this--I'm not big on retro games or anything but it's a solid deal (better than buying them on VC) and a good collector's item and just seems like fun in general. I'll hopefully end up trying some classics I missed out on since I never had an NES (and thus have only played such games on my computer or Nintendo consoles or the like)

It does have a solid line-up of games. Quite the deal, honestly. I'm not much of a fan of the NES era though, so I'll pass.

i mean it works out to less than $2 a game, so it's one of the best deals as far as games go. you couldn't match those prices at a yard sale XD

 

now give us an SNES version nintendo. you know we wanted that instead

I feel this, but I do want to give it a chance and have some piece of it, since it was the start of so much and is kind of... idk, revered by people in some ways. I guess you could say it's out of respect for the console that I'm interested. I don't think I'll get this at launch but I respect the idea and would probably like to have it at some point, maybe if it's $40 I'd be more inclined to get it XP (we'll see if Nintendo will be willing to discount it any time soon though, I wouldn't exactly count on it...)

I have to admit, most of the old games I like were on SNES, so yes, I agree with that statement. :P

How much is it currently? Or is it not out yet?
