That sucks dude. I wish I could offer words of comfort, or advice, but I don't have anything. My longest relationship was eight months, I can't imagine how confusing it must be to suddenly just... not have something that seemed so sure after almost a decade. I hope you come through the other side alright, duder.
@spraynardtatum: Not that I have any say in moderation, as just another duder like you, but I'd like to think there's a pretty well defined line that can be drawn between strong opinions and crappy behavior. That line pretty much comes in at personal attacks. The moment it goes from actual debate and discourse, no matter how heated, to saying personally offensive or malicious things to someone else, it's time for someone to step in and at least say hey, you fuckers needa take it down a notch. If it persists past that warning, I think the mods are justified in bringing out the ban hammers. Just my $.02.
Kind of sad that this is even an issue, but I definitely fall on the side of we can't just ignore it. This used to be one of the most reasonable laid back forums, albeit with a measured dose of crazy, but a good natured fun type of crazy (ala the staff photoshop thread). For the most part, really, it still is, most of you guys are cool duders, but it's unfortunate to see that very vocal, very shitty minority crop up and ruin it for everyone else. I don't really have any constructive ideas to add to the discussion as far as stemming these sorts of douchey behavior problems, but just wanted to voice my support for dealing with them as opposed to letting the mess happen and doing damage control later.
Hell of a necro here but I couldn't resist. In short no, not the best game ever. However, it's one of my all time favs. I really fell deeply in love w/Oblivion when that game dropped. Anyone remember Greg K's 10 hr. or so stream when it released...great times there.
Word, son. Word. Crazy shit, this might have been one of the first live streams I ever watched on the internet.
Brad did good. It's weird seeing him actually be awake during a podcast and not asleep at the wheel. I'm seriously not sure what's up with Brad. When he joins tested to do random podcasts he's super alert and on the ball like he was in this as well. Maybe he just finds the guys boring to listen to?
Brad seems like the type of dude who needs to be actively engaged or he gets bored/distracted. Just hazarding a guess, as I (obviously) don't know the guy. A hosting slot, in that context, is perfect for him, as he both stays engaged and keeps everyone else on a tight track of discussion, but in a very natural sense.
