I only tend to post when I'm not involved with women.

Hence this post. Expect more posts until I am engulfed by vagina again. For some reason, women act as a kind of vaginismus to my forum activity, I become a non-active member.

Now I am a swollen member again. :D

I'm in the same boat as you well it's just the one woman in my case:) I still miss her so spending more time on here and gaming take my mind off her :cry:

It's usually always one for me. But one always feels like an army of them, hehe. Time to cleanse my mind for a bit and talk about the best version(s) of Doom...

I haven't been on here in a bit, though. Does Crunchy still post?

I know what people mean by same old, same old...but it's in the DNA of retro gaming. It goes with the territory. Like, there's a C64 vs Speccy thread right now...and it's a bad thing but also a good thing. Ya can't win.

Let's all go play sticky biscuit with a tape copy of Horace Goes Skiing and sod the rest of whatever's going on everywhere and anywhere. ;)

But the hot weather doesn't stop them from making 59 billion Facebook posts, so why is that? Fo
It's always hot here too, but I still post. :)
You're in Australia, aren't you? Saying Oz is usually hot is like saying the sky is blue or water is wet.

Crunchy's gone he asked for his account to be deleted Koops has been banned as well.. They had a Doom thread only versions I played or the PS1 and Snes versions.. When it comes to PC gaming all I've played is Max Payne.. That reminds me I really should start a best Max Payne thread:)

Good to see you back Jazz I hoped resurrecting this thread that a few of the old regular posters may post...

That's the sort or response I expected from a certain Somebody who's willing to give murderers the benefit of the doubt and models himself after Che Guerrero – a racist sociopath who helped to establish a regime that butchered all its opponents and threw into jail anyone who disagreed with him.. I expected better from you Tregard..
A DUNGEON, I would throw people into a DUNGEON. Not jail. Then make them stumble around in a helmet with no eyeholes and big horns on it for my amusement.

The forum seems more lively than it was about a year ago. The "It's All About the Games" section seems to have quite a few new topics, and not just on the modern stuff, but retro as well. Okay, the forum and magazine are a few years old now - and a lot of subjects/games have been covered - but of late, some new topics have been discussed.

Or lock them in a room with 'Folly' now that's a fate worse then death I'm surprised you managed to stick him for eight series:) Your later apprentice Pickle or whatever his name was less said about him the better..

That reminds me wasn't there a guy wearing a cows skull dressed in black and the Dungeoneers could spy on him with your crystal ball.. He's not turned up in the first 3 series as yet or did I imagine him?

Lord Fear, you got to spy on him with the spyglass, appropriately. He only appears in series 5-8. If you've got to Pickle and the Eye Shield, you're at series 4.

Well one user has been logged in all day spawning spam thread after spam thread and nothing's been done about it.
So yes, the forum's in decline.

In my opinion yes.Compared to a few years back its declined a hell of a lot.The last couple of years especially it has gone down hill a lot in every way.Thats just my personal opinion though.

I can't remember the last time I wanted somebody's fingers to break so badly. . The fact that you even waste your time coming here trying super hard to convince yourself that your not just some guy on the internet on a forum which your universally disliked, " shows me you are in fact a person that has no positive impact on society. You easily rank as the most egotistical person I have ever seen since I've been here. Your delusions are by far a testament to your mental disorder that you obviously have, and I implore you to seek professional help.

:lol: What an extraordinary unprovoked and random outburst. You seem to be having a hard time of it lately.

You and I have hardly ever spoken, and the last time we did, you made similar daft remarks, but then apologised and said someone had put you up to it to troll me. You've done this to another poster on here as well I've noticed, Elgin_Mcqueen. You seem very angry at the world. Thanks for the medical advice.

I'm going off to bed now with my girlfriend.
