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"

Is my voice strange?

    Right. So a few of you have played with me now. I have a bit of an odd accent, which probably comes from my dad being Scottish and me living in a rather posh part of the country. Who knows.

    Do you find my voice odd? I don't care. I'm sure I've heard it all before. :D

    You all sound odd to me. Apart from Jamie. He sounds normal.

    Most of us are American. Of course you sound strange to us, and we must sound strange to you. You have a funny accent. I bet you think the same of me when you hear me being all American over here.

    Differences in accents is all that it is.

    You don't sound any stranger than the average person that I share this country with.

    Everyone from Europe sounds weird when they speak English. Especially you folks in the UK :p

    I think that says more about the moronic nature of the average person. :tease:

    I do still wish more of you sounded like narcoticcoin, though. :D

    I still haven't had to chance to play online with you yet sir, but now I'm really curious! :D

    I imagine I sound like the typical American, other than I'm more west and tend to have a bit of that stupid hick accent because I'm surrounded by them occasionally. :/

    Heh, you sound pretty normal.

    I've definitely had trouble deciphering things Andy and Jamie have said to me, though it's been a hell of a long time since I played with Jamie.

    I should just play around with my (awful) Russian accent next time we play. :D

    Yeah, I try to use the word "suck" more often when playing with you foreigners! Gotta keep it simple so that you can understand. :D

    Oddly enough, one of the guys I met at college talked just like that. Of course, what else do you expect in Kansas?

    I read it in his voice, too. Gave me a good laugh.

    Instead of what other word?

    Also...I'm curious to hear you speak. A girl I've been hanging out with has an older sister and she nabbed her a British gent. He lives about an hour away from Scotland, he said. Not sure if anyone over there watches the super-bike races (whatever they're called - here, it's Moto GP)...but that's what he does. That's why they have a house there and here, for the dual citizenship or some such.

    And the new girl at my comic book store is British. Took me a while to figure it out - cuz I didn't wanna mess up if it was actually some kiwi-accent or something. She's a quiet one. And cute. I should get into some more comics...

    ANYWHO...Iwouldliketohearyourvoiceandjudgeyou. Please.

    Well, if you buy yourself a nice 360 then you can!

    I'd say that I sound closer to Welsh than English or Scottish really. Weird.

    What are you playing currently? I'd be up for some XBL matches with you if we've got any of the same games if you're interested at all. It's been a while since I played multiplayer in any game.

    MW3 is the main game that I'm playing at the moment. What's your GT? I'll add you and see what you've got.

    Which reminds me, Andy. I have that TH game home with me now that I'm home everyday. Just give the word and I'm ready! :)

    Oh yeah. Forgot about that. We'll play some MW3 sometime and then, if we get bored, we can go for TH.

    MW3. Do it. There's a fair number of us that play it.

    Is it worth it for multiplayer alone? I could give a rats a** about the 4 hours single player :D

    Yeah, I've done about a third of the campaign, but don't really have much desire to keep going with it. The multiplayer and social aspect is where it comes into its own.

    Well...this won't happen.

    I wonder if the display 360's at Best Buy, etc. are connected to the internet?

    It's actually not that bad. Well...when chugged.

    And why bring a headset, when Best Buy usually stocks Turtle Beach :p

    I'll see if I can't get in the media room and run audio out through the TV's speakers and just the audio in through the headset/mic. That way the whole store will be able to determine how strange NL does/does not sound. haha.

    There's still an aftertaste, even if you chug it.

    I'm not sure it will work, despite how awesome my voice echoing around Best Buy would undoubtedly be. :D
