This should be interesting.  Here's what you do:

1) Go to your profile
2) At the bottom, click on "Show the last posts of this person" and find your first post here
3) Now what was your very first post at Gaming Trend?  Explain if necessary.

Here's mine from the "Where's Gone Gold?" dealio.

Nov. 11, 2004.

I started off by taking a shot at farley2k.

Quote from:  "farley2k"
So that means stores (at least on the East Coast, and Central) can't do midnight sales like they are for Halo 2

That is dumb.  I wonder what marketing genius came up with that idea?  "huge release...lets make it hard to build hype and get people buying..."


I'd be shocked to see anyone even want to do midnight openings for Half-Life 2.  It may be the biggest PC game of the year, but it doesn't compare to Halo 2's pre-order numbers.  I manage a game store - we had over 600 Halo 2 pre-order's and have about 30 Half-Life 2 pre-orders.  A midnight opening doesn't make sense.

Some things never change.   icon_biggrin

So is GG perm dead? If so its not like it was unexpected to me. I am really mad at Rich. He shoulda done something and if he was'nt able to then had someone else do it. Id been wondering if he'd just let the domain die.

Anyone else thought about picking it up? I really miss that forum. And I had hoped to do more trading.

Is this CG forum going to be our new home? Im kinda lost without GG to visit every few minutes.  frown Besides I had nearly made the 10000 posts mark!

Gone Golder here.  Finally bought an Xbox and I looking for game suggestions.  I figure five recommendations is about right.  I am not interested in fighting games or sports games except for something like Death Row.  I have already played most of the good ports like Thief, PoP and Splinter Cell.  Ninja Gaiden looks great but what else?  Anything on the Xbox equivalent to Sly Cooper?

Not much explanation necessary.

Quote from: Purge on: 03-05-2004, 17:40:55 in the Topic   Gaming / Console Gaming / Ninja Gaiden: What's the deal with Alma?      
I read a similar message in an FAQ somewhere... I fought Alma the first time, and beat her without missing a beat.

I tried her again, and found her much more difficult. It might be a rhythm thing; if you mess with her fighting patterns quick enough you can basically control the battle. If you don't, well, she's *very* capable of handing you death and humiliation.

I found that the third boss wasn't too tough either (airship), but the the bloody 2nd level boss schooled me a few times. And the two worms; yeesh.

The one worm was easy enough, especially with Unlabored Flawlessness.
Trigger the sweep attack, bird jump off the wall and pummel the ground. Wash, rinse and repeat. Unfortunately with the two worms, no wall.

This must have been when we switched over; I wouldn't have started with that post in the site... plus I was working for CG back in 2002-2003 so I suspect this was just my first post in SMF 1x.

Considering that despite owning all of the current consoles my current playlist consists of Final Fantasy 4, Final Fantasy 8, and Fire Emblem, I'm a big, big fan of backwards compatibility.

I apparently felt the need to defend a Tenchu game:

Quote
I'm sure I'm one of the very few that will say this, but I actually agree with Tenchu receiving the higher rating.  Admittedly, I'm a stealth junkie, but I enjoyed Tenchu much more that NG.  NG was awfully pretty, but I thought the combat system and gameplay were pretty poor.  Once I got past the "Wow, look at that" factor, I lost interest pretty quick.  OTOH, I've really enjoyed Tenchu's stealth based gameplay.  Yeah, the AI sucks and the camera could use some work (although it's not bad once you figure out how to use it), but overall it was a much better "ninja" experience.

My first post was on June 2, 2004

Quote
SPFT2 is one of my favorite games of all time. I bought it when it first came out for the PS1, but two years ago I made the grave mistake of selling it on EBAY for $75. The moment it was gone I regretted selling it. I searched for the last two years in every used game store for it without success. But just two weeks ago, I found it used at a Blockbuster for only 7 bucks!  Cool 

The game does have some luck to it (like all puzzle games), but a skilled player can always overcome luck (at least in a two person game). Playing against the computer, though, misses out on half the fun; to really enjoy the game, it has to be played with friends. Now if only they would make an update of the game with an online mode.....

I was lame even back then.  icon_cry

/e emerges from the void.

Dammit, I was closing in on 3000 posts over at GG!   :?


Quote from: "Tareeq"
Too bad.  I enjoy gonegold as a place where I can have those discussions along with my gaming news and movie reviews, recipes, and scans from Maxim and whatnot.  I don't have the mental capacity to split myself among multiple sites, and I hate those highly partisan forums, because they're full of people like me.
Which is not to knock consolegold and what you've built here AgtFox.  Seems like a nice place.



I'm with Tareeq on this one.  One of the primary draws for me to GG was the opportunity to discuss controversial subjects in a (usually) adult and reasonable manner.  I will miss the GG forums...

Thanks for accommodating us KD.  It almost makes me feel bad when, about two years ago, I told you I didn't like Suikoden III because I had a thing against the anime style graphics of Japanese RPG's, and you kept telling me to give it a shot and it would change my mind (at least, I THINK that was you).   :lol:

I have always vowed not to join another forum as I already devote excessive amounts of time to the Octopus Overlords forum (and some may remember me from the GoneGold days), but after having enjoyed yet another fantastic evening of multiplayer gaming with some of the GT clan (papasmurf, JarrodHK, and perhaps a few others I'm forgetting at the moment), and having been lurking for quite some time, I would be remiss to continue to avoid joining GamingTrend due to time constraints when I could be broadening my Xbox 360 Friends list with even more fantastic people to enjoy multiplayer gaming with.

My main reason for joining is the popularity of multiplayer gaming both here and at Octopus Overlords, the obvious camaraderie you all seem to have together, and having already enjoyed meeting new people from GT just through common Friends (such as JarrodHK who also frequents both GT and OO), I figured now is as good a time as any to become a participating memeber here at GT, if only to meet new Friends to chainsaw and curbstomp to death (or, perhaps it would be more accurate to say "to be chainsawed and curbstomped to death").

So for those who are sometimes looking for an additional teammate or enemy fodder, feel free to add PhillyPeteRock to your Friends list.  I currently have Gears of War, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, PGR3, Madden 07, and Test Drive: Unlimited in my multiplayer library, as well as classics such as Halo 2 (which I still play with friends from the Philly area), so hopefully I'll be able to become an active member here, both on the forum and in terms of online play.

So I go to www.gametrailers.com a lot just to check out trailers of upcoming games (I LOVE trailers) and I came across Mega Man X: Command Mission.  I downloaded it expecting a stupid 3d adventure game or a sort...but you know what?  When I saw "Cool RPG Battles!" come up in the video as well as a few seconds of footage of what looks to be a real RPG-style battle, I began to salivate. 

Oooooh, if pulled off right this could rock.  The whole trailer is pretty damn cool so I definitely recommend a download.  Anyone have some other information about this game?

Wow, I can't believe I wrote "(I LOVE trailers)" in my first post.  Embarassing.

Just wanna add my 2 cents....bringing the grand total up to 2 cents.
I have been a loooong time lurker on GG, but due to my inescapable shyness I have never posted there or been involved in any of the innumerable subjects of which I found my self inexplicably drawn to, but never involved myself in.(Since this is my first post I'm gonna get all my big, fancy, downtown falutin, words outta the way). But now that GG seems to be on the outs, I feel this is my chance to join the crowd.
I found myself wandering aimlessly across the internet since yesterday searching for a site that could fufill the black hole that was left when I could not log onto GG. I woke up this morning, weary to have to face yet another day without GG or a place to stand outside the virtual window of and watch as people discussed the games and topics of interest which I could relate to. Then, just as I was giving up hope and resigning myself to the fact that I may have to forgo my quest to seek a place of refuge for my gaming needs to be kept up to date, and that I may have to tap into those internet porn-site surfing feelings I have been surpressing for so long, I remembered that on GG, tucked in there, I think somewhere between Multiplayer discussion and Road to Gold, and all the Derek Smart Flame Wars tm(just in case), there was a topic called Console Gaming. I have been a console gamer since Intellivision
and right through to XBox with most everything in between, so I often lurked in that forum also. Then I recalled that there seemed to be a "sister-site" to GG called Console Gold. Although I had visited that site a few times in the past, to be honest, the lack of discussion of PC games always led me back to GG, where I had it all in one place. Now with GG seemingly down, I find myself here, along with what seems like a bunch of other dedicated, but unfortunatly some what displaced gamers. As I have read through the growing number of new post in this forum concerning GG and being from familiar names from GG, I feel as I may have found a new community. One which I will strive to become active in this time. It seems as if we are being welcomed with open arms, and for that I am grateful. I hope most other GGers are too. Thank you KD and other CGers for that. I hope we dont wear out our welcome anytime soon.
I will shut up.....for now biggrin

Crystal Calamity was nasty, and I was stuck on it for several days, but oh boy was it satisfying to complete that mission. smile

Loving Advance Wars DS very much, though DQ8 will take me away from it shortly!
