Did you mean 'why' instead of 'like' in your above post?

If so, then I dont agree. This board is fairly clean of that stuff, with the exception of dj's avatar and all conversations regarding it.

A woman who posts on a computer gaming site is going to expect catcalling and whistling if she posts her gender.  That doesn't work as a defense of the catcalling though; it's ungentlemanly to say the least.

Umm, yeah, you're right. I rephrased that several times.

True, this forum is pretty clean, but with the #2 poster's avatar and that sort of stuff, what can a girl expect?

Hey, bringing back dead threads is OK... after all, the great Kohr-Ah Primat read every thread then extant and raised a good fifth of them... After a while you get used to it.



Indeed. As long as you add something to the conversation, and preferably use more than one sentence I don't see a problem with thread resurrection.

It's the "Me too!" replies, or the answers to technical questions asked three years ago that are pointless. If memory serves me, Primat usually made some sort of contribution to the threads she raised, opening up a new perspective.

Although I rose through the ranks rather quickly, almost all of my early posts were on topic discussions, rtaher than two line/word exclamations. In all fairness, this is a bit harder today, as most things have already been debated to death and back. Still, some of you youngsters have a lot to learn about posting Wink

Back on topic, two old asskicking games just got re-released for the GBA. River City Ransom and Speedball. These two games essentially sum up my childhood.

The topic is " they don't make them like they used to"

Are you inferring that these newly made GBA versions are vastly inferior to the originals? Or perhaps that making them for GBA is different to making them for old machines due to different hardware specifications? Otherwise your just discussing old games, not the topic  Tongue [/nitpickick overdrive]

I think I remember Speedball. Or Speedball 2. Other than my stylish Nitpicking, that's all I've got...

Unless! I choose to tie in this whole conversation with the Steve Martin topic, smoothly pointing out that they wont make those new movies like they did the old (since they've changed the cast), directly tying into the title topic and earning me a triple score!

Unless! I choose to point out the difference between the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, sadly stating "that they don't make them (invasions) like they used to" earning me quadruple points, and a bonus swearword!

Oh yeah. I'm just that good.

Actually, the new versions of the old games do them justice, I think.

the GBC versions of Dragon Warrior 1-3 did NOT capture their former glory, primarily due to the fact that it was dumbed, down Experience and Gold values were increased(from defeating monsters, yet level up points and equiptment prices remained the same.) the Zelda re-make would have been more desirable had they painted it gold as well.
