Blast from the past

So I stumbled upon this site by accident and thought "hey, isn't this that site from back in the day and don't I have an account here?" I sure did, and I got both the user name and password on the first try. I never was an active poster here, but it's nice to see that some familiar names are still around.

Hey Garland!

Hope life has been treating you well.

I feel a little bad asking this, but how goes (went?) The ultimate FF7 speed run? I remember you starting it way back when, but I havent kept up.

It is just SO like Garland to be travelling through time like that...

Society had a crime problem. It hired cops to attack crime. Now society has a cop problem.

I stopped following the speed run after a while but I think he ended up quitting because it was too insanely difficult (needed too much good luck).

That's what he gets for not playing his own character's game.

I haven't quit the speed run. I'm just on a very long break. It happens every time I reach a very long and luck reliant segment. I simply don't have the patience any more. You could say I'm too old for this shit.

Yeah, just like how I took a decade long break from finishing the .hack series.

Those games did get repetitive as hell. Though I'm oddly proud of myself for besting that entire series.

At first I was curious what someone would be googling to accidentally stumble across the Brink, and then I googled it and discovered that there's an HBO show called The Brink. Interesting.

Don't forget the game!

In the end, it was not guns or bombs that defeated the aliens, but that humblest of all God's creatures, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Good game, that. Would have been great if it was about 5-10 times longer.

So anyway, I found my old topics and it turns out my last visit here was in 2011. I was sure it had been much longer.

Time seems longer (and shorter) than it really is.

All in all it's good to hear from you Garland. I've pretty much stopped visiting GameFaqs, so I don't even know if you still post there.

I don't have the time anymore for posting regularly. Although this place still seems to get me to come back often enough.

I check the FFVII board and a couple of other boards weekly, but I rarely post. Some users from the old days are still around, like shadow666 and Raiu.

I'm most active on Youtube these days. Currently doing a rather tough FFX challenge.

Glad to hear there are still some familiar names around there.

And yeah I see the videos you post on YouTube. I don't even know what that OSGANONSNR stands for, but I'm sure it isn't easy. I've played FFX countless times, but I've never tried a challenge game for it.
