  1. Oh yes I saw this on Discord. Congratulations!! Such gorgeous photos. πŸ™‚
  2. Hm, not a bad idea. But I don't think I could do justice to it. 😞
  3. Right now I'm playing: Persona 4 Golden I had bought a Vita a while ago and kinda just left it collecting dust. I didn't get Persona games...I kept dying in Persona 4 Golden, heh. But then I played Persona 5 and I began to understand how you're supposed to play these games...so I've now gone back to Persona 4G and I'm loving it. I just picked up Freedom Wars as well, which I'm keen to try out. Ghost of Tsushima What can I say about this? It's getting rave reviews. It's really good. I'm slowing down on it a bit more now though...it's a very large game, and starts to feel a b
  4. Nice one! Looks like you got the chance to do quite a lot. I agree with you 100% about the food. My goodness. There's SO much great food everywhere you go! The best food I had was probably at a little Japanese curry place at Nara Station. It was really small and didn't look special from the outside, but when I went inside, there were a lot of awards hanging on the walls. The curry was so incredible - best I've ever had in my life. I still get cravings for it, haha. Fortunately there's a lot of great Japanese food in Australia, as Japanese restaurants (often run by Japanese folks) are
  5. Any ideas on a type of RPG/theme?
  6. The big question is, what should it be about? I haven't written any kind of fiction in years. If I could get the gang back together (or most of them), I'd like to have a crack at either a new Maverick Hunters RPG or even just continuing the last one. It'd be super weird (but also kinda cool) to just resume something we stopped a decade ago. πŸ˜„
  7. It's cool that you made your way to Japan. What areas did you visit? Was it what you expected? I went to Japan last year (well, end of 2018 through start of 2019). I went to NYE celebrations in Hiroshima, which was a ton of fun.
  8. Well who would join me if I did?! Hm...? I feel like it’d be a lonely RPG...
  9. I wish I'd replied to this thread originally so that I could see if my predictions would come true.
  10. Twenty years! We must do something.
  11. You too mate. I must admit, this COVID-19 situation kinda has me hankerin' to create an old-fashioned OB RPG...
  12. My problem is that I buy far more games than I actually play. Growing up, there were always certain games I missed out on, and in some way I feel like I'm "catching up" now. But I don't have time to play them all. Also, it doesn't help that Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes 50-bazillion hours to finish, so it kind of sucks the oxygen out of the room for every other game. :-\
  13. Gavin's legacy will live on forever through this simple phrase.
  14. At the moment I'm playing Bloodborne for what feels like the millionth time. It's just that good. I'm also playing Far Cry 5 (which I'm quickly tiring of). Sea of Thieves and Sunset Overdrive also make their appearances now and then. I'm eagerly awaiting God of War at the moment. I think this Sunday will be all about that. ;-)
  15. Wow, congratulations! Sounds like you had a bit of an ordeal there, I'm glad you and bubs got through it. :-)
  16. It has taken me a while to respond here because every time I went to say something, I couldn't find the right words. I think I'll still fail to really describe my feelings, but I'll give it my best shot. I've been away from OB (and this whole community generally) for a long time. Admittedly I don't really keep in touch as closely as I should, and so, the first I heard about this was via a Facebook message from Adam. I had to re-read it a couple of times, because it felt completely out of left field (given that I don't use Twitter at all, so I wasn't aware of Jon's condition). It's really hard
  17. Hey Shwa, what platform are you playing The Division on? If it's PS4, then feel free to add me to PSN... my name on there is white-pikmin. Here's what I'm playing at the moment... Dark Souls III Still playing this and adoring it. I'm almost 60 hours in, but I'm not yet finished the game. I've just finished Lothric Castle, so I'm near the end. I veered off and did some optional areas, and I've done quite a bit of cooperative play. I love the Souls series, and I'm almost sad that Dark Souls III is coming to an end for me. But I guess there's always NG+ and a second character to try... The Divisi
  18. Congratulations! That's great news. :D
  19. Boo, I think I need some marketing advice from you. :P My career has been all over the place. I studied graphic design at University (while I was still active on OB years ago), but I ended up moving into the health industry (weirdly enough). I got to a fairly senior point in that industry, and then I finally made a move I'd been wanting to do for ages; now I work in a software company, and I'm actually involved in software design (mostly business analysis and user experience).
  20. Thanks for completing the move, Petie. By the way, I'm more than happy to revert back to a regular title on here. :)
  21. At the moment I'm kind of re-discovering Louie - just finished watching the second season. What a great show! Also, I've lately been reading Bram Stoker's Dracula, which has been fascinating. I'm about to order Uzumaki, as I only just heard about it recently, and it looks like it's right up my alley; surreal Japanese horror at its finest!
  22. I'm happy to see that OB really left people with some positive things, even if the site isn't active anymore. For me, it's actually a little complicated. On the plus side, OB actually helped me through a difficult time in life; it was at a point where I'd just started studying at University and I was living at home with my parents. I went through a good couple of years that were very tough for me. Looking back, I actually think I was probably clinically depressed for a period of time there. During that time, OB was one of my primary windows to the outside world. The experiences I had and the
  23. It's great, although I only use it for a few features. Mostly, it's good for meeting notifications and things like that - I find it very useful for work stuff. :-)
