XWA One Year Thread Part VII: Shadows of the Forum
Happy New Year, all!

Here begins the next One Year Thread. Make it epic, people. Dismissed.

Rogue15 01-01-2012 12:48 AM

it was time to go to a bar after not being in one in 4 - 5 months!!! :joy:

Wildstar 01-01-2012 12:30 PM

I suspect this year's thread will get more action than last year's now that R15 is back from basic. :)

My BFF will be over today...the major task is getting something installed that I've always wanted on my machine: Microsoft Office :D

edlib 01-01-2012 12:52 PM

Twenty Twelve.



Make it a great one, boyos!

Maybe this will be the year we get a new X-Wing game... Whattaya think?


Anyway... I'll try to find a few moments to be a bit more active than last year. I doubt it will be easy... But I'll make the attempt.

Maybe this is the year some more of us will meet up in person.

Anyway: happy gaming for another 12 months stallions!

Sith Holocron 01-01-2012 09:42 PM

I'm somewhat new to this portion to LucasForums but I'm certainly not new to either X-Wing or Tie Fighter.

I hope to playing a lot more Tie Fighter now that I've discovered TFTC and Waylon's missions as well.

Speaking of Waylon, have you folks seen my post about his request?

Keyan Farlander 01-02-2012 10:01 AM

Ugh. Back at work. Not fun after two weeks of vacation.

Kuuki 01-02-2012 10:23 AM

'Shadows of the Forum' eh? kinda catchy :3

Keyan Farlander 01-02-2012 10:41 AM

The last several years have seen thread titles that were takeoffs of the movie names, so I decided to go with a takeoff of the name of one of the novels set between the films. So it was either that or "Splinter of the Forum's Eye" :joy:

K_Kinnison 01-02-2012 06:22 PM

Here is hoping that 2012 will be better then the last one.

So far I am emotionally drained, depressed, and saddened

my wife hates it that I wanted to watch football yesterday, and today she thinks her car is going to die on her.

I got a birthday coming up... hope things get better soon

Rogue15 01-02-2012 07:13 PM

you got married?

edlib 01-03-2012 12:02 AM

Time seems to be an issue. I don't have it.

Either I'm flat out at work. Or I'm just too busy with the GF and her kids to even think.

I have a GIANT list of things to do at my place that I meant to tackle some of this last week that never even got considered since I was hardly at home. Or when I was here I was on the verge of collapsing from exhaustion... Or taking care of puppies... Or kids... Or all of the above.

I need to find some way to manage my time better.

Starting... tomorrow. Off to bed now. Vacation's over... Trash and back to work early in the morning.

Hooray. :dozey:

Keyan Farlander 01-03-2012 09:38 AM

Everybody is back at work today I guess, since my drive to work took twice as long as yesterday :dozey:

edlib 01-03-2012 11:34 AM

Mocha and Max...

Yes... I have dogs that look (and sound...) like Ewoks.

Wildstar 01-03-2012 12:39 PM

I might know someone. :D

Keyan Farlander 01-03-2012 02:12 PM

Aw, those are some cute puppies! And they do look like Ewoks! Which raises the question...why isn't one of them named Wicket?

edlib 01-03-2012 02:32 PM

Well... I really wanted to name them Sam and Max... but mom vetoed me on the girl dog. She wanted a "Mocha".

Plus, she already feeds a stray cat she calls "Sam".

But, I kinda wanted tough-sounding names... since they are pretty much tiny wimpy dogs. I can currently hold both of them in one hand with room left over.

Yes, you even congratulated me

What is happening in our married is it is being stressed. Both of our Cars are over 10 years old and starting to make hints of being unreliable. The current political environment in Wisconsin with the Governor and GOP attack on State Union workers is making her worried about her job. We have a new house. Both our mothers passed away last year. And our household budget is tight... even with me working at a crappy job

Rogue15 01-03-2012 07:17 PM

ah i remember now...

just worked out at the gym...sweated alot. weighed myself, didn't gain weight over the holidays! went from 194-175 from august-now. :)

Keyan Farlander 01-04-2012 10:10 AM

My New Year's resolution is to win the lottery.

Rogue Nine 01-04-2012 11:56 AM

Ed, those look deliciou-err, adorable.

I don't like dogs, they tend to be rather greasy and flavorless

edlib 01-04-2012 02:47 PM

Yes... but cat is rather gamey.

Rogue15 01-04-2012 02:52 PM

checking out a place to move to tomorrow...hopefully it's a good deal!

Wildstar 01-05-2012 12:01 PM

I admittedly struggled in the early part of my bowling season, but I seem to be starting to get it together. Case in point, last night, I had something that I hadn't had all season: A clean game. :D

edlib 01-05-2012 05:13 PM

Work sucks. At least the "getting up in the morning to get to work" part does. Once I'm here it's not really that bad. A bit boring perhaps... but not terrible.

I'd much rather just be chillin' at home, playing video games... but since I'm apparently out of days I can take off to do that, I have to try to make myself appear busy around the office and the hall for several hours a day.

Rogue15 01-05-2012 07:59 PM

found awesome place to live....has a really nice view of Scranton too! :) utilities & heat included, even has washer and dryer!!! and internet hookup!!! xbox live anyone??? i hope so soon lololol going to the bar with my lady!

Keyan Farlander 01-06-2012 09:36 AM

I'm ready for another two-week vacation already :dozey:

Rogue15 01-06-2012 09:57 AM

went to the bar last night, it was great...held my liquor. :joy:

edlib 01-06-2012 06:20 PM

I've been on Live all along. Hardly ever do anything with it anymore. Not since playing co-op Halo Reach with Keyan anyways...

If it weren't for downloading DLC for my racing games, and getting Youtube on my TV... I could probably live without it at this point.

Hopefully that changes when Halo 4 drops.

I'd be willing to work through Halo 1 (AKA: Anniversary) again if anybody wants to tackle it co-op. Let me know... I'll pick it up.

Otherwise: I think my next game is going to be Skyrim. Dunno if I'll ever have time to ever make a dent in it... but it just looks so amazing I can't stop myself from wanting it.

K_Kinnison 01-06-2012 08:27 PM

IIRC the engine use for Fallout 3 and new Vegas was used for Skyrim. I have been hopelessly addicted to Fallout 3. There is some great enjoyment for me just exploring and finding an abandoned caches of supplies... or waling into an abandoned grocery store and seeing a rube goldberg type trap get activated that reveals some hidden loot.

I for one am waiting for Diablo 3.

Keyan Farlander 01-06-2012 09:55 PM

I want to play through Serious Sam 3 co-op when it hits XBLA. Other than that, I don't have much to do with it. I'm playing through Perfect Dark with a friend right now, but he doesn't have much free time. I don't know about any more Halo. I don't think I'm too interested in Anniversary. As for Halo 4, I'll have to wait for the reviews.

Keyan Farlander 01-07-2012 02:02 PM

Taking my mom to a concert tonight (a present I got her for Christmas). Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 1, Mozart's Jupter Symphony, and Beethoven's Grosse Fuge are on the menu. Should be great!

K_Kinnison 01-08-2012 10:52 AM

Took my Dad out the bar last night. TO a place that had over 100 beers and 15 on tap. He had the O'so brewery "Big O" porter. And i had Furthermore's Burbon barrel aged scotch ale... OMG that was delicious and kicked you in the ass at 10% ABV. Of course my Dad being the single guy now was the "Old man" flirting with all the girls. it was funny.

Rogue15 01-08-2012 10:14 PM

drill weekend was awesome...

Keyan Farlander 01-09-2012 09:29 AM

The concert was good. Weekend was way too short, though :mad:

Rogue15 01-09-2012 11:06 AM

secured my rented room!!! happy now!!!

Wildstar 01-09-2012 12:40 PM

Received some bad news last night: My class treasurer (and the one who led the planning for our 25th reunion) passed away suddenly over the weekend. He had been a good friend, too. Because a similar death in the class threw me for a loop mentally 12+ years ago, I'm asking those close to me to keep an eye on me, but so far, so good.

Rogue15 01-09-2012 02:55 PM

sorry to hear that man.

edlib 01-09-2012 04:59 PM

Aren't they all? :dozey:

I don't know where the time goes. I never seem to have any of it anymore.

I could really use a weekend that lasts 20 or 30 years...

Keyan Farlander 01-09-2012 08:32 PM

Blast from the past:

Played a few levels of Rebel Assault last night. Dang those controls are loose! But the magic is still there :)

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:07 PM.
