I'm sorry to hear that but I'm glad you're still with us and now a Pokémon Master.


Aha! You rascal, didn’t expect you to turn up here. Great to see you. :wub:

Thanks, the former was a long time ago (feels like a lifetime ago - I was a very different person) so I like to think I’ve grown past it now.

Started on Games radar and left just before it was shutting down and went to Play Sona, stuck around the until it closed and then came here.

Since Joining Gamesradar I've had 4 kids, which some people know. I remember playing on the 360 back then and (I think) Sandycoin or Suzz or someone would talk about how I kept having kids just to eat them. Was fun.

Not much changed other than my weight has gone up. I did stream for a few years, but have had a few months break and err yeah. I enjoy it here for the most part, I don't post that much though.

My memory is awful for these kinda things but I'm pretty sure I got here though being in the EDGE forums, then Gamesradar when EDGE went down then here. I've grown up pretty much in the past 10 years, I'm no longer the raging fanboy everyone still thinks I am, not at all in fact but I accept that I've made my bed to lie in etc. When I started posting in here, I was a young singleton who got smashed at the weekends and had one night stands constantly but that's all gone now. I fell in love, married and had a child with an American girl I met in Stockholm, we've bought a house and things right now are fine. I've changed my job from Dublin Airport to an Engineering firm.

As far as this forum goes, I started as a bit of a fanboy, I accept that, I still don't think I've ever reached the levels of Gamerforever and Nick SCFC though. In the past few years I've seen the vapid stupidity of favouring a multi-billion dollar company over another. I think the last ever blatant 'fanboy' trolling was the Michael Jackson Popcorn gif after Eurogamer gave driveclub a poor review, the place went mental, I enjoyed it but I think that was it. I never got banned for several years until Buffalo became a mod and he banned me 4 times in a year :lol: yet my apparent complaints where put down to me being paranoid, despite the fact that Buff hates me and the blatant anomalies in his moderation. Once it was for saying someone in the football thread 'acted like a banana split'. 1 week ban that got, unbelievable really.

My biggest complaint on banning though was a 1 month ban because a newbie guy said he'd played The Witcher 3 before release in his friends place and the frame rate was choppy on Xbox. I responded with a laughing emoji and this new guy wrote about how he hates me and is never coming back and I got a 1 month ban, a regular poster gets a 1 month ban for a laughing emoji at some new bastard. Incredibly then, I got an email to say that my ban was reduced so I could post during E3, but my strawberry floating month was up as E3 started so it made no difference.

So that's my thoughts on the forum, used to absolutely loved the place and then for 2-3 years 1 mod made my forum life a living hell, he'd follow me around form thread to thread trolling me and throw in the occasional ban for good measure. He's left now but not before the damage is done, he's had a hand in at least 3 members leaving this forum yet gets a free pass because....reasons....I nearly left myself after my third ban from him but stayed to spite him and now he's gone, this place is all the nicer for it, and not just for me.

I check this place everyday, and I'm starting to like it more and more, genuinely hate some of you though, can't lie. Some of you are absolute bastards who shouldn't really have the right to vote nor exist imo - I don't interact at all with these people.

Peace.


strawberry floating hell man. :lol: you need to chill like.
