  1. I watched Reboot during its original broadcast on YTV here in Canada! It was actually designed and produced here, if I recall correctly. Perhaps one of my countries greatest cultural achievements? Hahaha.

    Also, for some reason this reminded me of a particular PSA aimed at kids that used to run constantly around the same time Reboot was airing, done in the same sort of crude early 3D animation. It basically just showed this robot running through a minefield/volcano/something like that, avoiding almost every dangerous thing, but then finally getting hit at the end which causes his arm to fall off. He then just casually re-attaches it, and says "I can put my arm back on. You can't. Play safe!" Did you guys have that in the States, or have I just described what must sound like the most ridiculous thing ever for no reason? X'D

  2. I've been listening to pretty much exclusively MC Frontalot, Frank Zappa, and Ted Nugent for the past..... while, at least. Is that a weird combination of musicians? I think it is, probably, but a good one by the standards of my ear-holes at least.


  3. Again I've never played SR3 or any of the earlier Saints Row games, but I'll take your word for it I guess? I could see how they might decide to allocate their budget to other, possibly more important aspects of the game, haha. Also DX I was meaning to ask after I saw your profile while PMing you, why are you 30 holy shit. For some reason I seem to remember you at some point long ago specifically stating that you were 19, and now I am faced with the fact that that must have happened literally a little over a decade ago.... Whoa.


  4. Sorry for my forum necromancy, but the mere title of this thread reminded me of the "cover" (heavy emphasis on the quotes there) that I did of the North American One Piece theme song for some sort of contest here back in the day (I'm talking like 2004).... I think I actually won something for it too, which seems insane XD

  5. I've never played any of the other Saints Row games, but I enjoyed number four a lot. I thought the soundtrack via the radio stations was a particular strong point, lots of variety and great song selection.


  6. When I deleted the broken link earlier it seemed to direct to an Imageshack URL.... And as I certainly never paid for any sort of premium account there, no wonder it was broken XD

     

    Note: Ok, I definitely haven't been an active forum user in a long time, it took me a solid three edits to figure out how to do the normal XD hahaha.


  7. Good to see you Akira13! I've been pretty good. I always seem busy with work, games and my little dog Pikachu. :P How have you been?

     

    Thanks for the positive comments on the site. We went through a very long dead period for a couple years of low activity and heavy spam bots. We relaunched the site after I switched us over to a new forum software. Things have been better here, but like Strider said, its just a handful of us old timers here now. New people are welcome, but most people seem to be lurkers.

     

    Oh, and most of the new features and whatnot can be found in topics in the News & Announcements forum. So many new features. O_O And later this year, we'll be getting another big upgrade when the next major version of our forum software gets released.

     

    I've been good Sledge, just working a lot. This new software was definitely a good choice, yeah, compared to whatever the old one was.... phpBB I think? Or am I wrong? I just know that it was the one that seemed to be employed by every forum everywhere in the early to mid 2000s, haha.

     

    For realz, you need an avatar and adjust your sig in settings. lol

     

    Noted.... I guess the old Yusuke Urameshi avatar/sig combo didn't survive my multiple years of neglect, lol. 

    Also, hey Dubird!

  8. Hey, what's up, Akira13 here. So I guess the last time I posted was in 2008, and that itself was also a "haven't been here in a while post", which is super weird to think about if I'm being honest. I can barely comprehend the fact that I created my account in 2002, AT THE AGE OF NINE. In summation I think that AC is probably a legitimate contender for longest running forum on the internet, for real. Also, how have you guys been? Any old-timers still hanging out?

  9. Thanks for the warm welcome, DX. :P And things have been good Lady! Not too sure where I'm going to go after I'm done this year, probably gonna stay in here in Canadaland for Uni. Finally, thanks Cabbit/Godgrave! Good to see see most of the old-time AC members are still around.


  10. What's up AC? So, I haven't posted since 2007. I actually forgot this place existed, which seems weird because for years it was a decently huge part of my life. Taking a look at my profile I see I joined in March of 2002, which is pretty unreal considering that means I was ten at the time, and I'm now almost seventeen, in my last year of highschool. It's nice to see that not a lot has changed, though, save a few new forums here and there. Maybe I'll start checking up regularly again, and perhaps write some more articles/reviews, since I loved doing that back in the day. Just thought I'd stop by.


  11. Wolf, you know how I know you're gay?

    Because you just used "my time on this earth is short" and "pleasures of the flesh" in a serious sentence. X'D

    Just kidding. Listen to Wolf, boys and girls. The man tends to know exactly what he's talking about most of the time.


  12. You can do that in Windows Media Player.... just hit Tools --> Options --> and then the Rip Music tab, and change the format to MP3. Then rip the songs from the CD as you normally would. No conversion necessary.


  13. I've been listening to a good all-girl band called Pony Up recently. Here's a video they made for one of their songs:
