Title: Your age?
Post by: Galactic on April 02, 2007, 01:29:00 pm
How old are you? I'm 12 years old. Born on the 27th of April, 1994.

I'm -129 years old. I'm born on 17th of February 2136.
Sounds familiar?!

129 years? No, that doesn't sound familiar to me.


Title: Re: Your age?
Post by: Valaggar on April 02, 2007, 02:54:52 pm
Not 129, NEGATIVE 129! So I will be born on 17th of February 2136... exactly 18 years before the starting date of Star Control 2.

where is the option for this?

Post by: meep-eep on April 03, 2007, 05:25:17 am
Well, if you fill it in, it is shared. The option is not to fill it in (it shows up as 0000-00-00 in the profile information page).
You fill it in in the "Forum Profile Information" section of your profile (the button at the top of the page).

How do you know? Have you seen me play anytime? Or have you confused me with someone called 'Galactus'?

I think he meant for all members to post their age even tho you can look in their profiles...
I'm 20

His nick is Galactic not Galactus[[ character from Marvel comics

You're right, i meant Galactus. I'm sure you're good at melee too though

Well, when looked at my age, I think I'm good. I first played this game when I was like six years old.
It was one of my favourite games (though I didn't understand much english then) and it still is. :)

You are with no doubt the youngest SC2 player I know.  The game was released even before you were born!!!
I knew a 13 years old player a while ago but I think he's now a machine-gunner in the army LOL :]

He's the one with the ship editors for PC Star Control 2. He said that he was 13 when he made them, though I'm not sure as to how much credit to give him on this matter.

13 year olds with no friends or social skills can get a lot done.

*doesn't feel safe making that comment after noticing the "machine gunner" bit. Hiding ensues*

Anyone with no friends or social skills can get a lot done.  I'd say to liik at me, but I have friends.

18, for reference.

25, closing in on 26. More than halfway to 50, and a quarter of the way to 100.

I'm 16, though I started playing SC3 before I ever played the original. (Started playing Doom at 3, though ;D )

Perhaps that might be a more interesting thread... How old are you, where do you live, what do you do.

I'm 15. I discovered UQM by seeing that a game I was trying to download (Solar Winds) was a lot like this, so I figured I'd try this. I have not since opened Solar Winds at all.


Title: Re: Your age?
Post by: Lurker on September 01, 2007, 06:30:56 pm
I'm around 0.59 x 109 seconds old. When I played the PC original, I was quite young. Of course, I didn't understand anything of the story back then, so finding UQM was necessary for the completion of the game.


Title: Re: Your age?
Post by: AngusThermopyle on September 01, 2007, 07:42:30 pm
I think its great that UQM appeals to the younger crowd here. I would have guessed that only us nostalgic old farts liked this game. But apparently there are junior members of the community here that appreciate good gameplay and a good story. This is certainly refreshing to see.

I wonder if we should try to set up sort of "Games that old SC:ers approve of " list, for the younger generation.

Post by: lakota.james on October 14, 2007, 09:17:53 pm
I'm 15 now, but i was, like, younger before.  When i first found this.  I played sc1 when I was three, and I played sc3 when it came out.  I hadn't played sc2 until i found uqm, though.


Title: Re: Your age?
Post by: Valaggar on October 15, 2007, 02:52:59 pm
I figure you might already make a good educated guess due to several unavoidable factors, but I'm not telling you my age until a few of you post your guesses.  :D

My guess is that Valaggar is 17 years. I'm terrible at guessing ages though.

Post by: Toka on October 17, 2007, 04:06:59 pm
i'am 28.
maybe someone should tell EA that even the youth wants to have a new sc game.
i guess they think (like i did untill now) that only some nostalgic guys want a new/real sequel.

Terrible!? You've almost hit the nail on the head, so to say! I'm actually 16. Born on the 29th of July, 1991 (132?).

EA has nothing to do with this issue. Toys for Bob (Blessed Be Their Holy Names) is a subsidiary of Activision, Inc.. Activision are the heathens! Death to the infidels!
