To me, it hasn't felt like their hearts have been in this for some time. I don't much care for what they're doing these days because of that and I kind of mentally checked out around the time of the Tested poster. I don't like that it feels as though the Community is only important when they need money and suggestions are met with a weird "Yeah yeah okay." attitude. They go on trips and complain (yes I get that it's not a vacation, but maybe keep it to yourself? It's a tad disrespectful to your hard-working audience.) Endurance Runs should be done once a year in my opinion. If there are no games in summer, why not make that the ED time? Maybe have a quick little show and tell on Mondays for cool stuff developers send you where each dude brings in one thing to show everyone. That's a cool perk I would love to share with people if it were me. Anyway, after 4 months I'm very surprised they're not, "Settled." Whether you pay for a sub to support them or for content, they advertise it as paying for content. They're not delivering, and that's not okay.

As a Cartoonist, I came here and loved the living toons that were the guys. Dave was awesome enough to bring me on to work with them and integrate that artistic aspect of my life with this site and I had a great time. There's a lot I really wanted to do and pitch to them but never got the chance. The life force seems to have been drained from this place somehow, unfortunately. I hope they find that awesome spirit they once had. :)

Honestly I totally agree. Most social interaction rests heavily on Facebook which is the coldest, most uninteresting way to socialize. But it's efficient, so quantity over quality I guess. That's more or less why I don't like it, but if I don't use it then I drop off the map to everyone in my life. Sad but very true.

Hey guyz. If Quests come back, I won't be a part of them. My tumblr will have more, don't want to say it here.

I loved and hated it at the same time and I'll be seeing it at least two more times. It's a strange way to feel about a movie lol

Atmosphere took a back seat to outlandishly fantastical things like Wesker being immortal or some such bullshit, and whatever Resident Evil 4 was supposed to be with that retarded Napoleon character and ridiculous cult motif. Maybe it's more my kid self talking but the original notion of a biochem weapon corporation conducting horrendous experiments right under society's nose was far, far more plausible, interesting and horrifying. People say, "RE has always been stupid." Well of course it has some shitty, B movie parts but a mature adult should be able to roll past the minor quirks and see the good stuff.

Their main focus since the third one is squeezing whatever Grade F meat they can get from Wesker's bloated corpse. Since the Epilogues from Resident Evil 2 and 3, I assume fans of the series expected to storm Umbrella headquarters by now and get some answers. None of the story from the first three games amounted to anything and that's my biggest gripe. Shame really, I loved that series to death at one time.

@Hailinel: Yeah I hear you, I think I've only ever done the writing of Quests a handful of times because I'm horrible at it lol

Not really much to report just yet, and not sure if I'll be the one to report it. I had this small hope I'd get to take the controls of the Quest section someday (do stuff like a new design for the hub area and a boss battles). Not sure if it would even be feasible but I had this notion of a boss battle quest every month for subscribers where the first five to complete get a rare plain GB tee. Quests have the potential to be really cool, I feel like it hasn't had a chance to evolve since the site was so busy just growing in general.

Plus, I really want to draw gnarly monsters.
