I am back
« on: November 12, 2018, 05:35:05 am »
When I was 22ish, Perfect Dark was something I literally needed to stop doing, because I'd get angry at it, and also waste a bunch of time... In fact I pretty much quit video games altogether.

But... those days are over! w00t! I sorted out a bunch of areas of my life. Did some business stuff, did some "learning to meet women" stuff, and after that I decided I'd take it reasonably easy for a while, and bring video games back into my life.

And when I saw how much fun Karl was having streaming, well that just seemed cool to me and I wanted to do it. Another thing is, I feel I may have realized, that the video gaming community, is pretty much the best community there is. Good people.

I've kept up with all the PD and GE WRs. In fact I've lurked the forums all the time for the last 10 years. Some of you would have seen me in streams too.

Well, be seeing you around :)

Awesome! Hope you try out playing some modern strats! You're an absolute legend and your Infil SA and SOS PA times in particular are still amazing to this day!

It's great to see an older player returning to the game(s).
I've seen your name on various charts and I trust you won't pull any Bullshit like Steven Z.
90+ hrs into XC2 NG+, going for 100%. Be back when I get bored.

I'm still working on getting ParagonX9 to someday play again. Would be too epic. Great seeing you though mate.

Thanks for the welcome back :)

Icy -- I'm thinking of messing around with the Inves strat. That seems fun.

Concerning streaming, well yeah -- I think it'll be mostly cool to have some legit voice conversations. Back in the day it was mostly only AIM. Classic.

NOT that there's anything wrong with that!

Regardless though, welcome back bro!

Hi Matt, I'm pretty new, but it was a shock to see you posting here. I'm a new player but I've been using your Caverns SA and 00A times as target times for bragging rights- guess I might not be bopping you after all!
