@  Idiot : (23 June 2017 - 03:00 PM) Haha, good enough for me Blazer.
@  Whitewolf8 : (23 June 2017 - 12:05 PM) I am also still here. sort of. kind of. maybe. Also doubt I will 'actually' leave.
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:46 AM) and ofc, y'all are always free (if not welcome/encouraged) to chat me up somewhere else, though I don't intend to forcibly shut down these forums or anything for as long as I reasonably can
@  Fire Blazer : (23 June 2017 - 04:45 AM) You guys all bring up good points... not much I can say... or perhaps I'm just exhausted from everything going on in my life right now and don't feel like saying much... but know that I appreciate and look fondly on the time I have spent with you all... I'd probably even miss "Idiot", heh :P
@  Elwood : (22 June 2017 - 10:39 PM) I love this place. Doubt I'll leave as long as it exists. It's still my homepage so rest assured I'm always here a few times a day.
@  kirant : (22 June 2017 - 06:56 PM) True. You often begin stabilizing your interests and mentality in your late 20s.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:36 PM) Especially with forums like this that target a younger audience. Yeah a 45 year-old might stick around the same places when he's 55, but a 13 year old and a 23 year old are likely to have pretty different interests.
@  Rujio : (22 June 2017 - 05:35 PM) I mean, the problem is that this is/was a particular community, and communities like that change/go away over time. It's the same at any other forum, it's just that some places have the old communities replaced by new ones.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:29 AM) And that's from someone with only 6 years of experience under their belt here. Can't imagine how the real veterans feel about it lol.
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM) Yeah but even so, the ones that have stuck around this long are all really great people. I wouldn't trade the memories and conversations I've had with everyone on here for any super popular forum. Though, I'm not the one who created it so obviously we come from pretty different perspectives.
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:37 AM) I think I was harboring this notion in the back of my head that, once I get a lot of free time again, I'll restore it to its glory days, but it's not nearly that simple, and I don't think I'll have said free time in the next 5, maybe even 10 years anyway, so it's probably a bit naive of me... lol
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:37 AM) *in the
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:37 AM) actually, a little while ago I finally faced the reality that FES will never return to how it was back int he day
@  Fire Blazer : (22 June 2017 - 08:36 AM) @Rujio ah I see. well... I don't blame you
@  Idiot : (22 June 2017 - 08:20 AM) I find it's best not question stuff like this.
@  Elwood : (22 June 2017 - 06:54 AM) What have I started?
@  Idiot : (21 June 2017 - 10:58 PM) You saw an opportunity and you went for it. Kudos to you, I can respect it.
@  Mig64 : (21 June 2017 - 03:44 PM) I can see it now, a TV show called "My Little Shooter: Friendship is Tragic."
@  Idiot : (20 June 2017 - 11:55 PM) In the case of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, I suppose that's true.
@  kirant : (20 June 2017 - 09:12 PM) It shoots bullets unfortunately. Bullets is friendship, right?

Hey everyone I'm starting my new project.An alternate history timeline for the console wars called well In the Shadow of Giants. The basic premise is it takes place in alternate world where 4th gen console war(NEC v. Nintendo V. Sega) is prolonged into the modern day or at least the 7 gen.

Some ideas:

Hardware Developer team ups something doesn't happen irl but will happen with two of the mayor players.

A earlier JRPG boom with a game displacing Final Fantasy 7.

No sonic but another mascot for Sega.

huh. so like is this just a story/fanfic kinda thing? sounds interesting but I don't really get it. is it inspired off something like the Neptunia series where they have consoles take the shape of characters? hahahaha.

 

and man I can't really see SEGA having a mascot htat isn't Sonic. It'd be fun if in an alternate timeline Falcom and ATLUS became some super big-name RPG creators instead of the more niche ones they are now (though ATLUS does make some slightly higher budget/better games)

Its a story written in almost a documentary style.For the Neptunia idea, I honestly am not doing it.The idea is to show the history of a world that ended out differently from ours.

 

The Falcom and Atlus idea sounds pretty cool but they aren't the cause even though do play a big part.Originally I wanted it to be the killer app for Nec's 5th gen console but I replaced them another player.

 

If everything goes well the first two pages(1984-1989) will be posted by Sunday.
