#318150 A Late-Night Stream of Consciousness

Posted by Tom on 13 February 2019 - 08:24 PM

Good morning, everyone!


It is currently 9:52 10:15 10:37 PM. I've got work in the morning.


Regardless, something drew me here. Something compelled me to log in, post a status update and make this very topic. Probably nostalgia.


Definitely nostalgia.


The Wii U is almost 7 years old. That's the age of the average first-grader in the US. I feel like it didn't necessarily flop, though it didn't fare too well compared to the Xbox One and the PS4.


I still have my Wii U. It's kinda collecting dust nowadays. I still have the Animal Crossing Plaza, though the service has long since been discontinued.


I'm still kinda bummed that a proper Animal Crossing title wasn't released on the Wii U.


At some point I got my hands on a Switch, but nowadays I don't have enough free time to sit down and enjoy the titles.


At the time of writing, Nintendo confirmed a mainline Animal Crossing title coming out on the Switch this year. I'm looking forward to that.


I never considered myself to be a prolific member. I wished people happy birthdays and shared positive opinions on things. I acquainted myself with the kind members here and have forgotten to make contact with people.


Oh man, it's been everyone's birthday.


I finally graduated from college with a BS in Computer Science. It turns out that I find programming to be very dull.


I've been building a lot of computers in the meantime. I find that to be pretty fun, at least.


I might just go back and get an art degree.


My degree did, however, land me a nice job that has nothing to do with programming.


I've been learning video editing on the side as a hobby. I want to use what I learned in order to make a video on the history of WUF. I'm by no means an OG member, and it's going to require me to do a whole lotta reading on topics made before I even joined the forum. But I think it would be a fun undertaking.


The target demographic might be a little niche.


I'd like to make it and have it published on the 7th anniversary of the Wii U's US release.




It's kinda weird seeing that I'm the only soul on this website right now, at this time. A few guests, though I suspect all of them to be web crawlers.


It's wild to think of all the fun conversations that were had on this website. A whole lotta years have gone by since this website was considered totally dead, and I can't even imagine where everyone has gone and what fun exploits they've achieved in life since then.


I've kinda disappeared of the face of the Earth. I don't use any social media, nor have I been active in any other communities. It sometimes feels like I'm getting a little too old or too jaded to be participating in gaming communities. I've been wanting to do Twitch streams, but my anxiety has stopped me short of hitting the "start streaming" button in OBS.


I've experienced quite a few rough patches in my life. Despite that, my signature holds true.


I'm kinda drunk. I love you guys. My Discord is Tom Pls#2986.

#318102 How good is Zelda?

Posted by Tom on 28 March 2017 - 11:33 AM

I figured I'd get it on the newer console, considering that the Wii U is pretty much dead in the water.


And I ain't just talkin' about the forum. :^)

Looks great! I can't wait to pick it up on the Switch.


Y'know, if the Switch ever comes back in stock.

#318071 Pokemon Go: An Open Letter to Nintendo

Nintendo, you should try to be more modern and appeal to modern markets.


Nintendo, you should stick to your roots and stop appealing to modern markets.

Hank's trophy collection is too stronk.


Eddy may be a magician, but he's also a wizard at social networking.


Yoshi is good at existing.  Yoshi has a TON of hours put into Monster Hunter.


Segata over here is pretty mean has a pretty mean collection of consoles. Also keep being good at living, we can't have you missing Shenmue III, now.


Baltoist is excellent at greeting people.


Horchata is like, 4 times the artist I'll ever be.


I know Waller's done art, and I'd totally enjoy an art critique/roasting if I ever get back into drawing.


Gruff likes Animal Crossing. Good on you!


Mitch was a pretty funny guy. He should stop being dead sometimes. Maybe even make another cooking video.


Zinix was pretty chill, and didn't have a stick up his bum.


Auzzie Wingman, though. Really cool guy. Before he gave up on us, he was the voice of the forum. Or at least, he was just saying what everyone was thinking.


I swear I was subscribed to Pyroblock. Upon closer inspection, it seems that you've taken a bit of a hiatus.


Tom is the worst guy. He's had 3 years to grow up and I've yet to see any substantial progress.

You know me, I'm all about that Animal Crossing, Computers, MLP.

Oh man, hot Black Friday deal!




I would love to SLI it with my current 970, but it's not going into my computer. :^)

Great character design, but they could have gone with a better name.

#317191 The Truth About Zelda Wii U

Posted by Tom on 09 November 2015 - 12:13 PM

With Nintendo's current state of affairs, it'll probably do a Twilight Princess and release on NX and Wii U.

Man, it's difficult to acquire things when you're a college student.


But this print was less than 5 dollars, so what the heck.
