Time to pop back in here and be my usual mushy self. I might repeat a few things but I want to thank all of those who entered.
This past year has truly been amazing. There were some bumps here and there but overall it was one of the best years I've had in a long time. You all were the ones that made that possible. At first I wasn't sure I'd ever be able to fit in but that feeling quickly changed.
Again for those that might not be aware, before Meta the last time I was ever part of a forum was back in 2005 when the White Sox won the World Series. I've made the occasional post on the Giant Bomb forums as well but that's maybe 20 at most over 9 years when I still went by positivelypudding (hence my tag ).
So for many of you to be so welcoming and accepting of this goofy cat dude means so so much to me. As I said in the Steam thread, keep being awesome everyone! I'm looking forward to what the future brings!
Also one more quick thank you to Queen! Offering that code to add as a bonus was incredible. It was a true pleasure being able to team up for this giveaway.
Oh I would totally be up for that! I love PSO. Though you're right that it would require some testing to see how difficult it is to get everything going and how playable it is these days.Wondering if anyone would be interested in playing Phantasy Star Online on some private server ?
I don't know how you do it and if the game is still bearable, just a thought.
I'm sorry you feel that way. My intention has always been to try finding a time that works for everyone which is a difficult, if not impossible task.Would love to as well but my timezone seems to make me invisible to everybody.
whoa ... those look amazing! awesome job, guys!I'm announcing our May update a little early this time so that I can give a sneak peek at some of our upcoming changes. The visual changes are thanks to @Francis W.M. and I cannot thank him enough for the amazing work he did. Stay tuned for a peek at those at the bottom of this post. I'm also going to consolidate a lot of the recommended section and try to put a little more focus on newly released or upcoming games.
Thanks for your thoughts! I always appreciate them.- Gallery
Most excellent idea. At worst, boring and inoffensive, at best a very funny addition. There are no downsides.
- Bi-Monthly Events
I would tend to agree on the reasoning, with the hope that those who want can have an unofficial event every other week (but I'm sure they would). I'm basically advocating for more flexibility, have my cake and eat it too. Hard rules for events are important, and softer ones too, if I make sense.
- Banner with or without The Cat Dude name
Annoying, I like the two sides of the argument. I prefer the blue one for the eyes, BUT I also think you totally earned your name on the banner and that it add a welcome touch of personality. So, in the good old way if Meta-Coop, like when we have to choose a game to play, I would say... I like them all !
Still, a tend to prefer the Nate version.
BlindRhythm Did you have the opportunity to try 'Dragon Marked for nameistoolongpleasesaveme' ?
Yep! I tried the demo a few months ago when they first put it up on Steam. While it does require some coordination when it comes to moving bigger or heavier objects I wouldn't say it necessarily needs voice chat. The levels are pretty good size but also small enough that you shouldn't ever lose track of your teammates so as long as folks are observant it shouldn't be too bad.Has anyone tried the demo of:
It seems like a fun co-op game.
I saw that I missed Dragon Marked discount, is the bonus content closed too ? Not that annoyed, but hey, it screams Meta Co-op, so a bit of second thoughts.
I would like that! I've gotten a better hang of the witch since we last talked about it and can mash out the heal spell rather quickly now. The downside to it is that at least currently it only affects those right next to me and a very mobile shinobi might make that tricky.
I can also report back on the state of co-op for folks interested. I played a little with MonthOLDpickle last night and even with him being in Taiwan and me in the Midwest US there was no latency issues whatsoever.I saw that I missed Dragon Marked discount, is the bonus content closed too ?

Glad to hear it.I would like that! I've gotten a better hang of the witch since we last talked about it and can mash out the heal spell rather quickly now. The downside to it is that at least currently it only affects those right next to me and a very mobile shinobi might make that tricky.
I'd also be up for some SoR4 at some point. I forgot it was coming so soon.

Now I don't know if adding more folks into the mix from other countries will muddy that a little bit but it was certainly some good news.
I actually had no idea that had co-op! That's fantastic news!It looks kind of fun, and it has been receiving positive reviews.
Yay! I'm so happy for you!Next week I might finally get my internet connection! The thing I look forward the most is to try out some multiplayer!
Yeah I'm always up to trying out games! Just depends how well I can run them.Yay! I'm so happy for you!
Looking forward to chatting with you about some multiplayer stuff.
If and when you're ready I hope you'll join us for some of our community events too. I mentioned previously that folks are always patient and helpful and we try to play a wide variety of games so even if a certain game or genre isn't your thing we have plenty of options.
But of course as I said, only when you feel up to it. There's no need to rush into it. We're not going anywhere.
BF4 is a pretty good choice. One of my favorites of the recent BF games and still has a pretty sizeable player base. Glad to hear it runs smooth for you, that's great news!Didnt know which MP game to go for, so I became an old man and screamed at all the new fancy games to get of my lawn and installed Battlefield 4 haha, at least it runs buttery smooth!
I'm so happy you decided to make it!I have too much free time and am brainstorming a Digital Bordgame Thread. Send halp.
