I mostly just check in to validate new users and to zap spambots. Obviously, we get far, far more spambots.

@  randomizer : (17 March 2019 - 12:08 AM)

I pop in every couple of days but I don't really have much to say so I mostly just lurk.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 11:33 PM)

Not looking for anything particular here, but since we got people checking daily, I thought I'd point out that I posted a new topic in SatAM Chat. Show a guy some love and check it out.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 10:56 PM)

bout the same for me too. I honestly don't remember at this point.

@  Shadow : (14 March 2019 - 01:50 PM)

I been here since I was 14 years old.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:39 AM)

I lurk, too. Sometimes. Maybe us seniors should just meet up at a retirement village.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Hiho Wildfire!

@  wildfire : (13 March 2019 - 10:39 PM)

It doesn't help that everything i post on dies. But seriously, I do try and poke my head in from time to time. FUS was family to me for several years. I doubt I'll ever truly leave.

@  Shadow : (11 March 2019 - 04:43 PM)

I did mention before on the idea of a monthly podcast channel.

@  ShenFNWoo : (11 March 2019 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah, it's that kind of thinking that keeps this place dead, mang :\

@  wildfire : (10 March 2019 - 07:42 PM)

I still pop in from time to time. I'm like a professional lurker. As a senior member I think its fair to say I've earned that right. ;) Miss you guys.

@  ShenFNWoo : (10 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

Rereading that, a lot of that came out completely wrong. But then again, it is a shoutbox, I don't know what the max word count is on the thing.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:25 AM)

As I've said many times before... IF the problem is that they themselves can't do it, then the guys running this place could possibly outsource in some form or fashion to people with more time to help work on this comic here. There's clearly people willing to pay for it, and even crowdfunding might be an option.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:23 AM)

There's really nothing stopping us. All we have to do is want to do this stuff.

 

Dr. Phil once said bored people are boring. Why a clinical psychologist who admits that most of the problem is of a functional nature within a patient's brain would believe this, I don't know, but there IS truth to that. Those who can't find something to try to work with to have or make a good time are usually just devoid of character themselves.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:21 AM)

I have a friend that's working on our game concept ideas who has major depression and horrible anxiety, 3 kids and a horrible job that takes up most of his day. He constantly gets on some of our team member's cases (even mine) about how there's 24 hours a day, and how Schwartzenegger's motivational speech can do wonders for us.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:19 AM)

OR we can make our own sonic stuff, and put together something that could tide us over until the 'official' sea3on starts back up.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

We're all here because we like Sonic. We want more of it. When there is no Sonic to speak of, we could EASILY branch off into other topics, and continue discussing that stuff instead.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:00 AM)

Like, disagreements will NOT murder your world. You'll live. There were intense discussions that kinda just faded into dust. Most here seem to be polarized hard in either direction. People who're too conservative, and then those who swallow libtard nonsense regarding gamergate. And when disagreement that strong appears, people want it shut down. At this point, if I were running the place, I'd take any and all discussion

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 06:58 AM)

And I'm not just talking about what happens with me. Nothing extracurricular around here gets much of any attention. People seem to be afraid to get their thoughts challenged, so they just get dissuaded from participating.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 06:56 AM)

Like, there are artists here and writers here. I draw something for you guys, and sometimes I get a reply, but for the most part, people just look at it and go about their business. Don't you WANT more content being posted?

From what I've heard, Bollers and Penders did not like each other very much.

 

Yeah pretty much. I heard a story, so dunno if it's true or not, but basically Penders was a right prick to work with. Penders expected Bollers and other writers to follow what he had laid out in the series and what he was going to lay down in upcoming story arcs, despite the fact that Penders wasn't the editor. So he wanted them to follow his work and read his scripts, but he refused to follow any of their own work if he didn't have to. And supposedly knowing this, Bollers did that storyline which resulted in a bunch of Echidna characters being killed off by using them in those Egg Grape things. Ken was supposedly really butthurt about that. And if that story is true, then it's all the more awesome.

 

The Egg Grapes made Eggman a psychopath. Might as well have had him built a bomb powerful enough to destroy reality itself.

You know this might be old news, but I discovered Penders was the cause for why the game Dark Brotherhood was so awful. The lawsuit he filed it caused severe budget cut backs, and the game never fully finished past the beta stage. The bad midi music in it was meant to be placeholders to get an idea of what the real music would be like, had they were able to even pay to have a soundtrack made. Much of the expanded worlds were scrapped, as well as the gameplay locked in while still in its rough beginning stages.

The first time since Spinball Sega flirted with the western Sonic franchise and Penders cucked everyone over for original the enchilada donut steel destiny.

I wouldn't blame Penders for that. Yeah, it'd probably have been a much better game if he hadn't sued, but the lawsuit really shouldn't have affected the game's budget in that way.

You forget BioWare is a small company, and probably not used to lawsuits.

Or at least it was before EA bought it. I don't suppose you have a source though, Shadow?

Back then they were a small company. But then they caught fire with Dragon Age and Mass Effect

Good one!

 

But, to clarify, I think he wants a web link (url maybe?).
