All About Neo_Ike
First off, I'm not dead, envy me!!!
ahem, all joking aside...
Looking back a little over 5 years ago... I remember how GS became the first online social network I ever joined (Take that, myspace!) and I remember fondly of some of the things I did for the 3 year span of time that I was actually active around here...
I joined several Unions, some which apointed me as officer... I even managed to lead a few unions as well... that didn't really turn out well but atleast I tried to keep the good times going.
I have fond memories of the Off-Topic Battle threads, something so random that it was only prone to generate laughs
I also remember being part of the FEURPG amd the Zelda Allianze RPG for a time... which indirectly helped me in homing my programing skills
I remember all the good times I spent with many a nintendo related forums... eagerly awaiting Brawl alongside an unique group of people who shared the same passion for gaming as I did... and hope this manages to reach their screens so they too take in some of that nostalgia I'm feeling for those days not so long past.
I made dozens of friends... some that I admired from afar, some that I aspired to be like them, and some who stuck by me to this very day in one form or another... I don't plan to name people specificly because either way most of the people I met here on gamespot had something creative and unique to bring to the table,,, from serious topics, to humorous banter... even the trolls we're somehow a delight for me here... though I rarely was afected by trolls... and what the heck, I did my trolling from time to time so I'm to blame for it as well I guess...
I became a part of many story-driven projects within the community which only served to fuel my ambitions as a wanabee storywritter to the point that some of my actual stories bore fruit to interesting and original projects... regardless if they actually took off, we're put on Haitus, or we're inevitally cancelled...
This made me grow in my ideals and made me more open minded to what other's think though I still have my objective side... the gamespot community served as an inspiration to try out new things such as blogging, video Editting, animation, music composition, reviewing movies/games, directing, storywritting, producing, ect.
I owe so much to the gamespot community that I didn't really think that I would be back here in the middle of the night making another blog post about something probably no one would even read
regarldless, I just wanted to share my thooughts on how the GS community has influenced me for the better
I'm gratefull to the community though, Not Gamespot themselves (points to every biased GS review and controversy out there) but without them this wouldn't exist so... meh
And thanks to GabuEx whoose name randomly popped on my youtube account and mae me think of all this mushy stuff I wrote

PS: sorry for the mushyness
First of all, I admit I'm a huge Resident Evil fan, and second, the whole RE demo thing related to dragon's dogma is what might have indirectly drawn me to it... but, from the first trailer I saw back in last year's E3 I was strangely anxious to see what would come of it. And why is this? Because it looks freaking epic!
Though I already know that the story is pretty basic and that the character development should be about the same as Link's because he appears to be a silent protagonist (I don't mind this but it wasn't really necessary and it makes the developers look lazy because of it) but the dense world that is promised alongside a highly unique custom-tailored grouping system known as "pawns" have me pretty exited for the possibilities that this particular title holds. the overall game development process seems solid and taking a closer look as to who is working on it, the director behind both DMC4 and RE4 (sorry but I can't remember the name ) and other veteran game developers as well as a 4-5 year development cycle for the game means it could be a truly refined and enjoyable experience.
And now to the obvious point I've been so cautiously avoiding, Capcom is the one pulling the string on this new IP... the very same Capcom who's trying to constantly take our wallets hostage by trying to force DLC (downloadable content) or DLkC (Disk Locked Content) that forces any game they create to feel incomplete whether by personal opinion or by Capcom's greedy little agenda... and personally, I feel bad for them. Here they have a promising new IP able to gather in both old and new generation gamers into a world (single player experience mind you) big yet dense enough for the most avid explorer to sink their teeth in it and because of their past and current business tactics could become an underrated and under appreciated title because aren't simply going to shell out money to a game made by a company who's sole purpose for the past couple of years has solely to screw over all of their supporters with horrible sequels (in comparison mostly to their own former counterparts), bad re-amps of old games, horrible marketing desicions and worse little to no customer loyalty and /or precaution from their part.
Capcom has already DLkC in the game though they've announced their thought to re-think this strategy, I find it unlikely, and also if they DO change back to DLC it just means more spending money and downloading wait times for us right?
So... Dragon's Dogma, I plan to get it and I'm really exited for it, hoping it could be the best RPG this year because I'm really psyched for it... also Xenoblade doesn't count because it was already released nearly everywhere else last year... if it were, I Might tie DD with Xenoblade out of pity but I have to get my hands on the game to really think about giving it a final verdict.
And what you guys think?
