    I would most certainly agree with anybody that says that these boards have matured, at least since I came here. I originally joined close to the end of V1 (Feb 2001, 2 years and 10 days ago to be exact). I would say that the people at the end of V1 were pretty immature. At that time, almost no admins or mods were around to keep things in order. It seems that every week there was a new idiot that needed banning, but with nobody around to do it, it became a problem. I remember nights where there'd be some new member just flaming people for hours before Hbomb would finally show up and ban them. Some of these problems continued into early V2, but I don't think they were as severe as soon as some admins that actually stayed around on the boards showed up. Since then these boards have come a long way in level of maturity.
  2. After looking t some of your lists I feel kind of bad about getting so much stuff this Christmas. By myself I did superiffic but with my little brother's presents added to mine this Christmas was extraspectabulous. Mine - Resident Evil Zero (GC) - Onimusha 2 (PS2) - Robotech: Battlecry (PS2) - Metroid Fusion (GBA) - Metroid Prime (GC) - Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (Xbox) - Nifty 100 Disc cd rotating organizer thingy - Fighting Robots - The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien - Long Underwear The stuff I bought after Christmas - Shinobi (PS2) - Ratchet & Clank (PS2) - Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (PS2) My Brother (only the games he got are listed) - Super Monkey Ball 2 (GC) - THPS4 (both GBA & PS2) - Sly Cooper and the Thingus Racamagoocus (I am aware that this isn't the actual title of the game) PS2 Post Christmas bought stuff of his - Mario Party 4 (GC) - LOTR:2T (PS2) - Yu-Gi-Oh game for the game boy advance (don't know specific title) - The DBZ PS2 game I might have missed something but it's 5 AM and I'm too tired to check

    Where have you lived?

    I've never lived anywhere outside of Wisconsin. I was born in Madison and lived there for 8 years then I moved to Shorewood, which is in Milwaukee County. After only living for a year in Shorewood we moved to this nice little town called Pewaukee. I've been living in Pewaukee for 5 1/2 years now. As for vacations, I've been to Arizona(3), Illinois(4), Hawaii(1), Minnesota(2), South Carolina(1), Florida(1), Ohio(1), and California(1). My favorite was Hawaii, we stayed on Maui. Only downsides were sunburn and my old obsession with Dragon Ball Z (new episodes were airing, I hadn't yet discovered fansubs, and my hotel had Cartoon Network). I had to get to my room EVERY weekday to watch it by 4:30. Just more fuel for my current hatred of DBZ.

    Gaming Anyone else experiencing gliches?

    Some pretty strange stuff has happened to me in the game. I wouldn't really consider it bad though. For some reason, after I collected 10 hidden packages I got all of the rewards for collecting them (Hunter and all)

    Die Another Day

    I'm an incredibly big 007 fan and it pains me to say that I haven't seen this movie yet. Actually, I would have seen it but I got sick this past week (damn asthma).

    OtakuBoards <-> Life

    My life probably would have been much much better without otakuboards. I had a fight with the friend that introduced me to these boards and I personally feel that it wouldn't have escalated to the point it did if we didn't have these boards to fight on. Also, with all the time I had wasted here that I should have spent doing homework I think I would have done better in 8th grade

    Your REAL Name.....

    My real name is Cheyne Trost. For some strange reason nobody can seem to pronounce it (even Trost). My name has actually caused me some trouble, school records have me recorded as a female. Ch=Sh ey=ay ne=n Cheyne= Shayn(Shane) Tr is pronounced like the tr in trust and ost is pronounced like the oast in roast. People tend to pronounce the o like you would pronouce the o in the name Ross.

    [QUOTE][i]Originally posted by Semjaza Azazel [/i] [B]Well I'd say the first thing to do would be to go speak to a doctor. I realize that's hard to do, but obviously everything you've tried so far hasn't worked. It's at least worth a try, and a doctor should be able to refer you to someone or something that would help. [/B][/QUOTE] Yea, go see a doctor (the psychological kind). Something similar happened to me 4 years ago -though not quite a extreme- and I went to see a psychologist. He actually helped me out and today I'm a pretty happy guy. Also, trust me when I say that anti-depressants really do work.

    Gaming Your favorite video game hero of all time

    [QUOTE][i]Originally posted by Omega V4 [/i] [B]The answer to this question is of course Dante from Devil May Cry. He has the ability to change into a Demon, run on walls, among other things. [/B][/QUOTE] I agree. Dante is by far the coolest hero to ever appear in a video game. Sure he sounds like a retard whenever he talks, but who needs to sound cool when he can turn into a demon and unleash some incredibly cool attacks on his foes. However, I don't think that he has the aility to run on walls... yet (perhaps he will in DMC2. I still haven't heard much about any new abilities he's gained)
  10. I've actually seen some videos of the game on TV (Extended Play on TechTV). I couldn't believe it but they actually made the action FASTER. Also, the whole thing is supposed to be longer than the original and the controls are a little more complicated (but the numbe of attack options you have has been greatly increased).
  11. Well I can't really say that spending time here is my favorite thing to do. However, this version seems to be the most interesting one in some time. I've been visiting for 1 year 10 months, and when I joined there were a lot more people fighting and doing their best to disturb the peace. I actually found those times to be the best and most interesting. I really enjoyed telling off such people as thimoc 2, IFYM, and I especially loved fighting with my ultimate rival, SSJGoten. At least then I felt like I did something with a purpose. Heated discussions about why some anime character does something that doesn't make sense to somebody else aren't really my bag.

    Gaming Codes?

    [QUOTE][i]Originally posted by zidane11 [/i] [B]The one thing I can't find is any planes, can someone help me please. [/B][/QUOTE] I managed to get a seaplane after finishing a mission at Interglobal Studios on Prawn Island. You have to buy the place before you can start doing the missions for it though ($60,000). After completing the mission that has you fly the plane and drop flyers it will always appear at the boat dock through the back exit of the studio. I hope this helps.

    Story behind your name?

    My name pretty much comes from Green Day's CD "Nimrod". I used to wear a Green Day shirt with the title on the front and some people called me Nimrod for a couple days. It's the closest thing I've ever had to a nickname, so I just decided to use it after I discovered I couldn't get my old name back after being banned. I didn't really care since I didn't like my old name anyway.

    Mainstream but still Underground...

    Jimmy Eat World is a perfect example. They've been making records since 1994 and just now they start getting a little attention, but still not quite enough so that everybody knows who they are.

    Serial Sniper

    I've heard and read a lot about this sniper. Halloween being cancelled is an excellent idea for the area. The sniper obviously doesn't care about shooting children, and if he/she could escape with all of those people around he/she might feel that he/she can prove that he/she really might be close to unstoppable.
