#11883923 Gone but not forgotten - CAGs of the past

Posted by Rig on 30 June 2014 - 04:04 PM

Remember the ECA?  Everyone jumped in for the Amazon perk and then we late found out the ECA is a shitty organization?

My Genny slot is finally getting better. I took a crappy cart and just used it on the slot for a couple days to loosen it up. The others have been fine.

Update went smooth today, also. Finished Aladdin (Genesis) tonight.


#11870850 Gone but not forgotten - CAGs of the past

Posted by Rig on 25 June 2014 - 04:21 PM

I found some old messages here that took me back to some amazing threads.  Got me thinking about some of the better (and far worse) members that used to be here.  Many older members complain lately that CAG has changed.  (I actually agree; the atmosphere here is definitely different.)

 

So, let's reminisce about some of our favorite old members, shall we?

 

bignick

The first CAG I remember.  Back in 2003, I was a lurker that would visit the site daily.  His avatar and posts were what I remember from this time period.  Always a nice guy.

 

DenisDFat

Probably my favorite troll that's been on these boards.  Remember kicking the magazine rack?  Some people loved him, some hated him.  Everything sucked.

 

DragonLordFrodo

This guy was amazing.  I still sometimes say that I'm gonna "power down a sub".  He posted pics of himself, shirtless, licking his nipple.  (I'm not even going to try and find the pictures.)  Check this out.  And this.

 

x0thedeadzone0x

One of the most prominent females back in the early days of CAG.  I'm not 100% sure, but, I think she was one of the "creators" of the OTT?

 

JimmieMac

Picked a lot of fights.  Another OTTer.  Pretty sure Cheapy really liked him.  Wasn't he on Hell's Kitchen?

(I think he got into it with MorbidAngel4Life quite often.) 

 

Strell

One name most everyone would know (today).  Very nice guy.  What the heck happened to him?  I think it's been about a year since he posted.  :(

 

Mana Knight

Best blog ever.  I think he took it down though.  :/  Looks like his last login was just a couple months ago.  Maybe he's still around?  Anybody have old links to blog posts?

 

That's what I've got right now.  Gonna try and drum up some old threads.  Name some other memorable (old) users!




#11850977 YMMV ToysRUS "Green" Clearance is 50% off or more!

Went in to a store last night and found a PVC Tomb Raider Lara statue that I bought for $12.

 

On the way out, by the exit, I saw a skateboard.  I looked it over, saw it was originally $500...marked down to $100 (80%).

I had to buy it.  It's an EMAD Street Surfer electric skateboard. 

 

Had a blast last night riding it!  At $100, it was an amazing pickup!

SO IS PIKMIN 3 GOOD IF U HAVENT BEATEN THE FIRST 2?


I never played the first two. Pikmin 3 is terrific, and, worth it for sure.

I believe I have a Magical Drop game on Steam? Or at least I've played one before, but that would be something I'd be open to ordering. I have played the Jump Ultimate Stars and J-Stars games on DS and PS3, and was able to get by/learn the menus just by knowing how games work and had fun, so as long as it's not like a full on text game I should be good.

 

Sounds good, looks like you can get the trilogy on eBay for a good price as well!

There are also a few Super Famicom Sailor Moon games that aren't bad.  I have one or two that are Final Fight style beat 'em ups that are fun.  I think a couple 1 vs. 1 fighters, too. 

 

Gotta watch out for them though, because I know they had at least a couple text-heavy RPG's, too.

I was waiting on reviews on this thing before I ordered one. Definitely not in at $130+.


#11678446 Super Smash Bros

I think releasing the 3DS version first *might* cost them some sales on the Wii U front.  Maybe.  Then again, would those people owning a 3DS and not a Wii U have bothered if the releases were swapped?  Or, would they have just waited on the 3DS version?

 

I'm actually happy the way they are doing it.  Gives them more time to polish the Wii U version, which is the one I care about much more.

Who are the mods on CAG these days, anyway? I don't really see many of them post anymore, and, I don't think any new ones have been appointed for quite a while.

I'm just glad they finally got rid of the Saints Row and Deadpool reviews off of the front page like they said they would weeks ago.

Oh wait...


:lol:

I *did* just get Deadpool from that recent Microsoft Store sale...

If you have multiple controllers, you can set characters up in the ball, run to the end of the level, and line them up to throw them on the flagpole. Then, jump on yourself. I've decided to do this to complete the game for everyone.
