How old is SX ?

Hello Nadius. Your one of the names I recognize that is still here. Yeah, I used to live here as well. Under my old name Falstaff, I had like 649 posts in two years. No as many as some but respectable. I don't know if it still does, but there used to be a real edge to the site that made it a fun place to be part of. I went back to 2001-2004 and read some of the threads and they still made me chuckle.

I guess people move on with their lives. Gaming, while fun, takes a lot of time and the only ones with a lot of free time on their hands are young single people.

That pretty much sums it up for me.

Work, an 8 and a half year old daughter and a new girlfriend have managed to keep me from my consoles and from SX.

Oh well. ;)

A wife is even worse :p

That seems to be the story for a lot of us. Wife and kid here, soon to be kids -- as in within a week or two.

Yeah, the current kid is finally sleeping through the night most of the time, unless she's sick or something -- and even then she's pretty good about it.

Actually, my wife even plays some games with me, like mario party, mario kart, dr. mario, and... mortal kombat lol

She plays the sims 2 on the computer a fair amount so I don't catch hell for playing video games.

I'm not surprised. lol

My girlfriend is pretty competitive when it comes to Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. I try to steer clear when she loses to noobs who use smoke on xbox live. If I utter a word a single word or make the dumbest face of sympathy, she's liable to pinch. And she can pinch pretty hard.

I can't even remember the last time I posted here at SX. Good to see some of the originals, such as myself, are still around. I've been through a lot the last couple years, hence why I haven't been around. Working quite a bit, a couple girlfriends, got engaged (though she broke it off a month later), learned what it's like to be a father (My ex-fiance's daughter was born when we were together), etc. Basically, I woke up to the real world. I'm still collecting quite a bit (935 at last count), but I moved on from Sega a couple years ago. Though I've been bitten by the Saturn bug again, and have been buying quite a bit for that lately.

Yeah, the community really died down a few years ago. One of the reasons I drifted away as well. It's just as though overnight, the boards died. I was just at Eidolon's Inn and noticed how inactive their boards are. Anyone else picking up Pier Solar? Getting the posterity pack myself.

I still remember all the good times we all shared here. 2001 and 2004 were great years especially. And who can forget the big crush I had on Des-ROW? Haha. Haven't spoken to her in a year and half. Akuma, how you been? mal? vbt? Good to see you all again.

Man, I read the first 3 pages of this thread wondering when Cloud would show up. :rock:

I had a retro\nerd party at my apartment a few weeks ago. It was the first time in my life I got 12 people to actually play my 12 player Snake clone. Good times.
