It would be cool if more people followed your example because I'm sure there are plenty interesting VG regulars out there who don't post in the GS thread.

It would be cool if this wasn't called the "videa game regulars lounge", because it's a stupid name and there is no videa games forum.

I was just thinking the same thing, the Gamerscore leaderboard really is just Xbox users, and I'd like to really extend that circle, I'm sure there are cool users who don't go there, whether you be a Wii, PS3, PC, old school or casual gamer.

Sup I'm Mini.

You guys watch, this is literally just going to be flooded with Xbox guys now, it'll be exactly the same as the GS Leaderboard.

Hold on, there are 'cool' Wii gamers? :P

I'm in a bit of an odd situation right now. Usually there are no games that I want to play, but now there are loads I want to play. Games that I already own but haven't finished that is. Stuck on Lost Odyssey just now but I'd like to get that finished at some point. Seems a shame to just abandon it now. Also really wanting to play through Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age, Red Faction Armageddon and possibly Bioshock as well as finishing off Blue Dragon.

Oh and since a few of you seemed to have taken interest in this thread for the time being, are any of you considering going to the NG Manchester Meet in January? I was asking Mini about this before. Basically a lot of the people at the meet I was at last time seemed to be from the creative side of Newgrounds. You know, artists and stuff. I just thought it would be cool to meet some of the VG regs, although I guess being American or under the age of 18 probably puts some of you off.

I still think it's ace being called that here.

Happily playing through Deus Ex and Batman: AA for the third goddamn times because my saved just fucking disappeared, I really want to finish Batman: AA but then I think to myself "Damn, if I finish that game I'm going to want to buy Batman: AC" and I'm already poor as fuck.

I was tempted to call you that even before your name change. Like back when we used to play Battlefield I didn't want to refer to you as HAXORZ because that seemed weird and I've seen you post that you're not to fond of being called by your actual name, but at the same time I thought it weird to call you Mini when I didn't really know you too well back then.

I just don't think there's much point me going until I'm 18, which is a year a 2 months time.

I used a cattle prod and some Oreos if anyone is wondering how I did it.

Yea, it's understandable. I think it's Saturday night that Luis plans on going to a played called Kyoto Lounge, which is pretty much the perfect place for VG regs. It's essentially a bar with 3/4 Xboxs, 2/3 PS3s, a SNES and a room full of high end gaming PCs of which there's maybe like 15 or something. We went there last time and it was pretty awesome. There was even talk of getting it closed for the night so that the people attending the NG meet had it to themselves.

In other news, today is my last day of freedom. Tomorrow it's back to uni and all the stress that comes with it. Unsure whether to spend the day playing video games (which would probably mean time will pass faster) or just have a regular day of doing nothing in particular. In honesty, I want to make this day drag on for as long as possible because I'm probably going to be trying to sleep at 11pm so that I can get up early to catch my 7:30 bus.

How would/did you guys spend your last day of the summer holidays? Were video games involved?

I think I mostly played a few video games and that, nothing interesting. You'll get used to not being able to game as much and then it wont seem so bad. But I guess you are going from like 5 months or something of doing whatever you please every day to only being able to game at weekends and such.

I'm playing Borderlands mostly at the moment, got the GOTY recently so I'm trying to get all the achievements (again).

We've had nine or more FF threads over the last 30 days. If some of you really want to talk tons about Final Fantasy, we could do with a bit of light in the FF club. Not to say I'm outlawing Final Fantasy threads in the VG forum but if some of you have loads to say, we could build a conversation over there.

Ello ello ello what's all this then?

Well, looks like I did spend a portion of my last day of the summer gaming. Mainly Red Faction Armageddon but I had a game of Black Ops too. Red Faction just isn't doing it for me really. the first game in that series was awesome. Everything after I've found to be pretty naff.

Armageddon wasn't so bad, it just had nothing on Guerrilla, no free roam, shit alien/monsters, guns were a bit more innovative but they still seemed lacking and it was often hard to have 4 guns at once that actually seemed worth having.

The story was also kind of boring but that woman who was your ex or something was pretty hot.

I played Super Mario 64 during my final week away from college. I don't remember if I played it on the last day still at home, since I was either hanging out with friends or packing. Then again, I probably played video games while hanging out with friends, so there you go.

Yeah, I was really disappointed when I realised it wasn't there. I was hoping it would let you free roam after you get to the surface or whatever. Though to be honest free-roaming wouldn't really work because it's all post-apocalyptic and you can't breath outside anymore and shit.

Also would anybody with The Underdome DLC for Borderlands be willing to help me out on the Long Challenges some time in a week or two?

I organized my room and bought shelves and put up a lot of stuff in my room that I've always wanted to. Here's one of many pictures I've taken.

Considering picking up the Dragon Age games since they're pretty cheap on Amazon right now. Origins Ultimate Edition is $27 and Dragon Age 2 is is $20. Then again, Deus Ex: HR is $35, which is good, but I can always wait it out and get it even cheaper later on.

I don't really know much about the Dragon Age games besides the fact that I like Bioware RPGs, and I don't know much about DE:HR besides the fact that it has the same sort of design philosophy towards RPGs. Any opinions on what's the best bet?
