Unfortunately for you guys, my forum credentials are still good, but I'm not a blatherer. I'll let you make this thread epic, or not. Your choice.
I don't even remember how long it's been since I posted here, last. I could look, but I like the mystery better. Oh, RPGFan! How you've shaped my adult life! I've been meaning to thank you for that, and also curse you -- mostly thank. Or possibly curse. Recently I was at Anime Boston, and collecting 3DS puzzle panels, and like *everybody* that StreetPassed me was playing Pokemon X and/or Y. Only one person out of more than a hundred was playing Bravely Default, the game I'm playing, which is awesome. Funnily enough, I finished my village on 25-ish workers, and the 130+ I have now have nothing to do until the Titans arrive. It's like an honest to goodness real village. Anyway, I realized that the puzzle panels are just like Pokemon right as I left the convention. Speaking of which, Skyward Sword is awful. How the *fuck* did Aonuma make Twilight Princess good? He's failed at pretty much everything else. But I digress. Before I get off the topic of the 3DS: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is the greatest RPG ever made.
But enough about me. RPGFan clearly has gone through some changes since I last popped in. It's a sizable surprise not to see Rudo at the helm, but John, you're like a ninja or some other kind of badass. I'm sure you're doing the site proud. Liz and Mike, good to see you still in the staff roster. Also Neal and everyone else whose names I would remember instantly from your old handles. RESPECK.
So how the hell are you, RPGFan? I'm ashamed to admit I couldn't keep Anime Dream going for the long haul, despite the years of being a sister site to you all. It was all my fault, and with that in mind, I'm thinking of starting another site! :) It's, er, in the works. If I can take a break from playing RPGs....
