1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    Hi all, I've been lurking on the forums and using the main site's hints and tips for a while now and I thought it was time to take the plunge and become a member as this seems a very friendly community. Lookin forward to getting involved and trying to be helpful!

    If you want to know anything about my gaming likes/dislikes etc just ask. :)

    I'd like to think that we are quite friendly on the whole. Welcome to the site :)

    Welcome to GW! :)

    We are as friendly as two ferrets who meet in the middle of a narrow pipe formerly filled with raw meat. :D

    New members can't even access PIMI for their first two weeks.

    As for the Dome, it's currently experiencing a virtual renaissance, what with two active topics going simultaneously. :D

    I don't recommend new members go there, but neither do I discourage them. Even I got my ass kicked in there when I was new, but I managed to survive untraumatized (sorta).

    That's news to me. But then again, I wasn't around too much for my first five months.

    I've noticed and lurked a bit. The usual fine entertainment.

    I discourage them, unless they're already sporting troll horns earned elsewhere. Then all hope is lost. And besides, you're the Klown. Almost no one is more invulnerable to idiots, ego-maniacs, and just plain trolls.

    My advice is to stay out of the Moderator forum if you can at all help it. ;)

    Come to the Dome. It's full of Grammar Nazis, Typo Speznatz, and various other malcontents who'll help you improve your grasp of English through marathon ridicule and relentless brow beating.
