    Sorry sir. I would have the correct link in my sig, except they haven't thought to allow us to edit our signatures. Seems silly to have an uneditable dead link there.

    That's quite all right. New forum code is obviously going to have kinks to iron out. In a few months time it will be plain sailing.

    I got my modded mini controller from Gummo (hadn't posted since the site was down). Life has been a mad dash the last few weeks so I haven't got a chance to plug it into anything yet to test it out. Pics and tests forthcoming this weekend...

    OK, back with a clear(er) mind and ready to get moving on projects. First up is getting the Link pre-order up and running. After reading the rules of kickstarter/indigogo I think that I have to not use them because if I make a heavily discounted unit for the first x amount of people the rules of KS/IGG force a 1 per backer ruling :/

    So I'm moving to Austin TX in about ten days. Does this mean I need to start wearing a cowboy hat, or possibly a poncho?

    So I was walking home from class yesterday, and as I was nearing the corner, BAM:

    image

    weinermobile out of nowhere!

    and everyone was totally ignoring it!

    The total lack of fanfare and attention kinda weirded me out and made me think I was hallucinating, I guess I wasn't, because the picture is right there on my phone.

    Austin is not like that. I live about an hour from there and I'm from SoCal. Born in San Diego and moved to San Jose (hella norcal) in my late 20s. Moved to Killeen TX 2 years ago. Austin is as close to a California town as I've ever seen outside CA. It literally is like they cut a piece of CA out and put it in Texas.

    A quandary. If a reverse harem centers around a trap who is surrounded/wooed by reverse traps, is it still a reverse harem?

    I don't really have interest in the new MG game.. I just have a feeling that the bullet time slice and dice will get really old really fast. It's a fun mechanic, and I know you don't "need" it but overall it's just not that cool to me. Then again, I haven't really played an MG game since MGS2, I tried going through snake eater twice and always stopped for some reason. Great game, I just got side tracked and never came back.

    Same.  Last Metal Gear game I actually played was Metal Gear Solid for the PS1 and having seen friends or roommates play every MGS game since then the only things I can think of with regards to the series are:
    1) How come you  bother to update your graphics with each version but your controls seem to remain as clunky as ever?
    2) Have you considered hiring an editor?

    The disagree could have been intended as a "Your prices are too high." I was going to check the thread, but the link in your sig appears to be broken. I'm certain the prices are fine though, it's probably just some troll.

    Aww, at least in the G+ annex I don't feel nearly as bad about being all, "...Oh man, sticks are awesome, you guys are awesome, but all I can speak about with any sort of authority is keyboards mice and Quake :("

    Being a nigh-exclusive PC gamer, while trying to feel like you fit in with the FGC is a weird experience. I'll say that.

    Well it's not really a Metal Gear game. It's a Platinum action game but with MG characters. In other words, you'll likely be coming back for more slice and dice on hour 50 just because of how deep it is.

    My wireless was dropping, so I swapped out my current router for an older one I had lying around. It was a pleasant surprise to see that I had installed DD-WRT on it before as part of a previous networking experiment.

    Sadly this router doesn't do 5ghz N, but it does do 2.4ghz N and it works without dropping the connection, so I won't complain.
