    Edit: Had a grading thing here which is what some of the other users were posting about but after thinking about it came across as a bit rude.

    I was half tempted to say no so I could get my grade lower but I couldn't possibly pass up the chance to play on that amazing farm stage.

    I can give you an honorary "F" if you attend more games:XD:.

    Yeah I generally got B+'s in school, sounds about right.

    D's and F's all the way. I asked the art teacher for a C in highschool, if I could just clean up the art-storage room. When it was clean I'd just go in there and play my DS.

    You could get an A if you applied yourself ;). (In gamenight, for less important stuff like school a B+ is sufficient.)

    Why bother? I mean if you're so uninterested in the class that you'd rather play your DS why not just drop out?

    I did drop out. My parents wouldn't let me before that. My dad always said "If you drop out you can get the fuck out of my house." I didn't really have transportation or a job. Every goddamn application I put in went nowhere so there wasn't much I could do.

    I'd do what I do now. Get home from school, go to my room, boot up my computer and play some games. Back then it was all handhelds and Pokemon because I didn't have to share or wait a turn and most handheld games are trash.

    No RSVP from Miles or veng yet and no "Yes" RSVP? C'mon, I gave you two the "A", set an example. Anyway.. I normally try to base games off "Yes" RSVP people, but we don't have any this week other than me. I want to do epicmafia but I'm reluctant to set it without knowing how many people are attending.. I don't want a repeat of last week and we need around 7 people to make a decent run of it. I suppose we could do draw it again but I don't want to do that the entire time.

    I was thinking of going with something different like Diablo 2 if Shadow can make it. I like CS:GO but Numb doesn't come on anymore, Shadow/Miles are maybes for it.


    Anyway.. my tentative schedule for this week is to reduce the schedule to start at 7PM. Maybe the 4-5 hour thing is too much.

    7PM-8PM Cards of Humanity
    8PM-9PM Mario Kart 8
    9PM+ Diablo 2

    This only works if people other than me show up for it :P

    I'll likely show up for Mario Kart 8 for a few races but somebody will have to let me know when it starts. The usual notifications are int he chat that I pretty much ignore now.

    This seems like a frequent problem, between veng asking for us to message him on TF2 and Steam, Wolfheart who says he keeps forgetting because I don't remind him. I put out the schedule every week, normally a few days in advance. When I need to remember stuff I generally use a mobile phone alarm along with push bullet application. I've never had all that much trouble remembering the times.

    I've never used/heard of this but there are like a bunch of programs that notify people of stuff and I post the schedule every week. http://download.cnet.com/Desktop-Reminder/3000-2124_4-10973460.html There are probably like a dozen applications that have reminders like this one.

    This isn't something I care about. I'm not going to go to any extra lengths to watch the clock or set some alarm for it. I bought my Wii U for Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros.
    Mario Kart 8 is trash and everybody seems to have burned themselves out on Smash Bros. so I don't have much incentive to care. The other games I want to play don't have enough votes and I don't have or care about the other regular games.

    why dont you get mh3u HaxAras. i like it because its easy to play. you can play it while laying down. and i can show you how to use all the weapons. and you dont get burned out on it so easily. its a game you can play for a long time. i have 2000 hours in it now. and if you want another game to play, check out facebook.com/dfoglobal but dfo is pretty hard.. the pvp i mean. there are serious pros on that game that will discourage you. the dungeons are easy though

    Believe me, I have tons of games to put countless hours into.

    Halo games
    Crackdown series
    Two Worlds
    Elder Scrolls games
    The Witcher 2 and eventually 3
    Serious Sam
    Terraria
    GTA: V - online
    Minecraft
    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
    and so many more.


    It's actually pretty bad. I spend so much time in these games, that others on my shelves tend to go completely ignored. I just got Destiny with my Amazon credit card yesterday so that's maxed due to my Xbone and books. I'll consider that game someday.

    Might be a while with The Witcher 3, Crackdown 3 and The Elder Scrolls Online as well as a new Mystery Dungeon game to still be added to my library.

    I want to setup 100% Orange Juice ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/282800/ ) for next week (June 20th). I still haven't really played the game but it looks pretty good from the reviews/video. I already gave a copy to veng and Shadow already told me she's interested in the game (haven't sent her the copy yet). Even if I gave her a copy, I'd have a spare still. Anyone up for participating ? I don't mind getting more copies, I just don't want to give it to someone who has no plans of playing it.

    What is the game about? I skipped through the video and it looked like some card/board game. I might consider it.

    I was just now thinking about that game and then Mario Kart 8. Maybe it's best if the top games were only played every other week. You're going to get burned out faster if you play the same games every week.

    I don't really understand all the rules but my idea of it so far is that you start off with cards that give you increased movement or battle effects. When two players cross paths on the board they can battle, which they do so by rolling the dice. Each player rolls to attack, then defending user can decide whether to defend or evade. Difference is dealt in damage, eg. if you roll a 4 attack and and I roll a 2 defend I'd take 2 damage. If you run out of HP you lose some stars and are taken out for a few turns. You also get stars for landing on certain spaces. You can use cards to increase your attack power, heal, move more, etc. Person with most stars at the end wins. There's also some other win condition involving "normas" which I think is if you defeat enough other players in battle.

    That actually sounds pretty damn interesting to me.
