Title: Lurker? Old Member? Check in Here
Post by: TraderJake on February 17, 2008, 03:27:02 PM
RF Generation has a lot of members, however, over the times, some people have been either lurkers or have just plain stopped visiting frequently. This post is allow those of you that lurk the opportunity to say I'm Alive!. Certainly, there are members we've never heard from, and we'd love to hear from them. Also, there are other members who have disappeared from the site, and we'd love to see them on the site too. So, check in here. We miss you, or we never knew you. Change that, we'd love to hear from you again.

Hello, fairly new member, still in the process of uploading my collection (taking one part at a time).  Love what I've seen of the site so far, really appreciate the database.  I have yet to really get into the other features, but my second son was born on Feb. 10th so that's taken a bit of my attention!  I hope to eventually participate more in the community, but with a 17month and 7-day old, my time is touch-and-go for awhile.

Congrats on your new Son! We have a mantra with our staff that real life always comes before the follies of the internet, so we certainly understand taking things one thing at a time. Regardless, it is a pleasure to have you on the site!

Hope to see you around more in the future!

Hey I'm an old member, in fact the 13th person to register on the site, I think I did it the day it went live and broke off from the 'old' site. I come back from time to time to lurk here and there. I still plan on sending more stuff via mail over to Den, more will come randomly at some point man. You never know when, it'll show up. I don't even see Arrrrrrrrrr around anymore. Whatever happened to that crazy sob?

I also joined the first day this site was launched, but I don't know what place I had in line. Can someone find that out for me?

I had never heard of skiboarding. That's pretty interesting.


Title: Re: Lurker? Old Member? Check in Here
Post by: NESJunkie on March 27, 2008, 07:06:38 PM
Yea I really like it. It's a lot more freedom on the slopes than regular skiing with the independent leg feel that snowboarders don't have by being straped to one board. It's just plane old fun, and that was a great reason for me to try it and if you ever get the chance I recommend it.

Well over the past winter, I had some financial difficulties and had to sell a lot of my collection.  I kept all of my favorite systems and games though.  So, basically I've hardly been coming around here or submitting stuff like I used to...  But I still care about RF.  :)

This is the first I've been back here in nearly 7 months or so...still kicking, but barely.  I too had to sell most of my collection, for the 3rd time in my life, to pay for bills and huge medical bills (that's what happens when you get old).  Plus I've been doing archaeology in Alabama and Georgia for the past 6 months.  I come home on the weekends long enough to sleep, bathe, wash my clothes and hit the road again...much suckage.

I really miss this place!  I'll try and get back into the habit.

It's good to hear from you, Ken! I am sorry to hear about you having to sell off most of your collection. I hope though that the archeology work is awesome! I hope things turn around for you, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! Hope to see you around!

Hi, I'm still about.

My collectin should in theory = ZERO. but I found a calculator, and a megadrive and a few games the other day.

I'm still ont the fringe of the "scene" though, and am going to write some review for vol 3/4 of the ZX Spectrum Gamers Bible.

Also decided to get a Vectrex of all things as soon as funds allow, but I shelled out a few hundred quid on new bike leathers last week.

I got the bug again, after going to a convention, organised by people from  board I post on, and play games with on LIVE.

Just so you guys know, you are going to have to do an IP ban of all of Europe to get rid of me.

And even then, I could just stop dropping hints as to who I am.

Nah, he's just a loser who keeps making new accounts as he's been banned several times. I can guarantee it's a lot more work for him to make new ones and waste his vacation away than it is for us just click the mouse button twice and ban him again. ;)

Ahh... Good ole Three, sfs, and a load of many others. What a loser. I noticed that you already banned the other account he made yesterday called rfgenration. Nice work. Now my question is, why haven't you banned 'zogmachine' yet? :)

Zogmachine was banned this morning. He doesn't realize how easy and effortless it is to bitch slap him into oblivion, it's kind of fun actually. I've only banned him twice myself, other Admins have had their fun as well.

You know, sip on your morning coffee, ban him, check the latest posts and read the news, that sort of thing. :laugh:


Title: Re: Lurker? Old Member? Check in Here
Post by: logical123 on August 05, 2008, 12:38:07 PM
Hmmm... Mr. Zog is not on the members list, but his profile doesn't say banned. I think that there is a bug where if you are a tiger gizmodo, you will be banned, but it won't say 'banned'. How odd...  :)

I didn't ban his other accounts, only the last two he made in the last couple days. But the question really, is what did he do to *not* get banned? What did he bring besides trolling that is in the best interests of what Mike wanted for this site?

He's just another RegalSin, nothing more.

A smart man would just keep his mouth shut when he registers and use the user name only to send PMs to people he wishes to contact, since RFG has a kill on sight policy, for better or worse.

In feeding the "trolls" you also become a troll. You've all been warned.

I sold my retro collection, and bought a bike, but I've started going to retro meetups, and of course, I have XBLA games. Though I'm disgusted with the hash that they made of Battlezone, with it's one stick control....


actually, I have just got back into retro in a small way, I just got an Acorn elecrtron, an old British 8bit microcomputer, and aim to make use of it.

Oh, and i'm studying Astronomy at night school.

I'm still crawling around here and there.

I don't play games like I used to. Been moving and lemme tell it's been nostalgia-land digging all my crap out of the layers of dust that has drifted onto it all. I seriously miss my Playstation 2  :'( Damn thing hasn't worked for like 2-3 years now and I haven't bothered to acquire another cause I play too much freakin PC stuff.

wow. I remember you from the old VGB days.

Hey, I'm brand new to this website, I think the collection tool is pretty awesome for keeping things in order and such.
I plan on buying and selling as much as I possibly can on this website, so keep an eye out :)

Still alive. I haven't been checking in much since I haven't been able to buy games in a long time. I still find coming to the site to be a depressing experience. Also holy shitballs staff changes since I last checked in.

I was trying to make use of NintenoAge's collection software when I realized that doing that would limit me to documenting my Nintendo games old. Then I though, what about that RFGeneration place? Didn't I make an account there around the same time I stopped using the IGN collection software?

Turns out I registered in 2007, but never made much use of the collection software or my forum account (aside from a little lurking here and there).

I've been here for a little while but really there are only a few threads I have participated in, mainly the small scores thread. 

I got into collecting due to feeling disillusioned with the current generation of consoles and the state of the gaming industry and also wishing to enjoy the many titles I remember and many more that I never had a chance to play.  My collection is very RPG heavy because they're excellent for filling in time gaps between current gen releases that I am interested in.

See you around the forum!

Meep moop.

Sup alle? I began my second year of university studies last week, thought I'd drop by and say hello. Things are awesome. Prolly gonna start doing climate research within the month. I don't have many video games anymore, save my PS2 collection. I can't decide if I want a PS3 or 360, or if I should go ahead and get a next gen console.

Hopefully I'll stick around a bit more in the coming months.

Hi everybody, I've been a member here for awhile but I've never really posted outside of the sales extravaganza. I was pretty active here on the site when I first signed up, adding game covers and new games/demos to the list where I could, but my activity fell off after a few months. Maybe I'll manage to get onto the site more frequently in the future, but life does what it does.

I'm still a fairly new member, having only joined last year, and I was only active for a short time before I had to stop major game hunting for a while, due to losing my job back in December.  After that, and going through some medical issues that set me back for another few months but are now under control, I am newly employed and getting back into a sense of normalcy, and that's gonna include finding more time to spend around here.

Glad to hear things are back on track for you. Welcome back!

I didn't see an "introductions" thread, so thought I'd post here.  I've been listening to the CollectorCast now for a couple weeks, and have caught the last 3 or 4 episodes via iTunes, and thought I'd join in here since I'm a bit of a collector myself, though admittedly not as hardcore as I'm guessing some of you folks are.  Just saying "howdy" and I'll be lurking here from time to time.  I've been on Digit Press for a few years, though I mostly lurk there as well.  I'm not that active anywhere, but I may post from time to time, or watch out for sales/trades :)

I guess I should post in here.  I was a lot more active several years ago, around 2010 or so, and wrote several short pieces highlighting horror games, but I eventually had to focus on other ongoing issues in my life.  Since then I've built a solid career working in television entertainment, primarily with Cartoon Network content.  I've continued to collect, albeit at a slower pace.  But maybe it's time I come back, stretch my game-writing chops again, and get back to what I love discussing.

I'm also still a moderator and contributor on Racketboy.com, but some of that has slowed for me in the last few years too.  Funny how life sneaks up on you like that.

LOL. I never heard of that song.  On another note, I guess I should have posted here upon my return but , alas, I did not.  After leaving the Staff about 3-4 years ago I only came on to update my collection.  I never really paid attention to the forum except to browse the Sales threads.  I had so much going on with being married and having 2 kids.  Well, I had surgery over the summer and it brought me back to this site.  In July I returned and I am hoping to be back on here for good.   Go NES!

Well, after four years, I'm back from the dead. I had a little crisis so to speak, so I've been away since 2011, and now regretfully most of my collection is in storage bins. I hope to remedy this soon, but for right now I only have a few of my consoles and games on hand. (XBOX, 360, One, SNES, GB, GBA, Saturn, and TG16...  the bare necessities). I'm hoping to become active again here soon, especially since I am currently trying to start up a sort of retro "interactive entertainment" business called Primitive Gaming in the near future, and could use all the help I can get. I play a lot of 360, and I just got an XBOX One, and have a lot of free time on my hands, so if any of you want to do some achievement chasing with me, my XBL GT = xX Dev1anc3 Xx . I look forward to becoming a participating member of this community...  again.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Yeah, my inbox was backed up...   mostly people wanting to buy the box for my Super Gameboy...   3 people asked which is weird. I had no idea they were rare. I remember when my local Gamestop (might have been Funcoland then) had a huge bin of Super Gameboys for $2.50 a piece...   anyway. I haven't been on the hunt around the shithole state of N.C. since four years ago, so I really can't say how good the wild is here. I know this place hasn't changed much which is good I guess. Most of these dumb backwoods hicks haven't discovered the enterweb yet, so instead of posting their 32X Spider-Man on eBay and making a fortune, they have it at a flea market in a pile with Virtua Fighter, WrestleMania, and Primal Rage for $5 a piece. Gotta love it. A lot of these people haven't even starting growing thumbs yet, and they are very envious.

I've been off and on this place for a bit lurking, and while I've had my account for a while I just used it a tiny bit then forgot about it. Thanks to some people over at AtariAge where most-all of my fourm related action was going on, I was reminded that this place exists and that I used to lurk a good bit. Well, after a week of guessing passwords, I'm back (hopefully) for good and I'll hopefully make more than three little posts and then forget completely that I was here.

So I've been trying to get back into collecting for the past few months with a lot of failures from then to now but after going to a couple semi-local trade meets I think it's finally sparked again. I'm happy to find this place still standing unlike the shambles that is Digital Press now. Anyway hopefully I can stay a somewhat regular member again.

Post by: Shepy on June 20, 2016, 09:54:31 PM
Hey guys! Shepy (rhymes with preppy), formerly known as Project Nintendo, here! I've decided to change my username to match what I'm known as on other forum sites (plus let's be honest that other username was pretty lame). I've been semi-active on rfgeneration for quite some time now but haven't ever formally introduced myself so....here it goes.

I love lists so here's 10 fun facts about me!

1. I live in the Madison, Wisconsin area. It is my personal goal to suck the area clean of retro games before shaggy attempts to pollute the area with his bible games.

2. At 18 years old I am definitely one of the younger kids on the channel 3 block. My earliest gaming memories are from playing Nintendo 64 at a friends house.

3. Despite my age, my favorite system to collect for is the NES. I collect for all Nintendo consoles. I also own some Sega and Atari items. I've dabbled with other systems in the past (ps2, xbox, etc.) but never really got into them.

4. I am a Game Design & Development - Computer Science major @ University of Wisconsin - Stout.

5. For the summer I am working on various assembly tasks for a company that designs and manufactures circuit boards. It's tedious and boring but gives me plenty of time to catch up on old episodes of the collectorcast.

6. I've missed out on the Midwest Gaming Classic due to schedule conflicts for the past 3 years. I am determined to attend this year.

7. I originally came across rfgeneration via the collection checklists and stayed for the lovely database and Zagnorch's...delightful... forum posts.

8. I'm on team Crabby as far as my DLC / Downloadable content policies.

9. I'm also a big vinyl collector. I've slowed this down because I honestly just don't have much more space at home (my parents are already nice enough to house my ever growing collection while I'm off at college) and the fact that it's more of a money sink than video games which I'm able to flip.

10. I've just reached over 500 games in my collection. Not to shabby!

Post by: Boshamp on March 01, 2017, 02:40:50 AM
After about 8 months or so, I am back. I went a little crazy on the collecting over the summer, and neglected to keep it organized. Once the boxes and bags overtook the computer, my daily routine of visiting the site stopped. I kept buying, stacking, and repeating, and before I really understood just how much I was accumulating, I had turned my private shrine into a hoarder's closet. The biggest contributor to this was that my favorite used game store went out of business; I started buying a few things here and there at 30% off, then more at 50%, even more at 70%, and finally I pretty much bought everything left once the store hit 90% off. Now, my gaming room is about 10' X 12' and it was not only full, but anywhere from 4-9' tall depending on what part of the pile you measured. In August, when the store was days from closing, I threw about 200 more games from my final haul onto the pile and closed the door behind me. When I closed the door, it came tumbling after...and I couldn't open the door. The room has no windows, but two doors, and I had already barricaded one of them with a wall of boxes, so I just broke down. On Valentine's day, after 6 months and many embarrassing talks with my little brother and nags from my wife, I started to put some work into dealing with it. I still have a long way to go even after about 75 hours of work, but at least I can use my computer and catch up with you all again. Lol

I absolutely do. It is my own fault, but it still sucks. I am amazed with how many XBone games I am finding that I bought before owning the system though. Hopefully I will keep finding stuff I forgot I had to relive the feelings. Lol

I actually have been a member of RFGen since 2010, but almost never posted (I think the last was in 2012) despite using the collection tools almost daily in that time. I am usually adverse to posting on forums, but I suppose since I have been visiting this site regularly for so long, I should get involved with the community more. Also, if we are going to get on the subject of youngest members, I am probably up there.

I actually have been a member of RFGen since 2010, but almost never posted (I think the last was in 2012) despite using the collection tools almost daily in that time. I am usually adverse to posting on forums, but I suppose since I have been visiting this site regularly for so long, I should get involved with the community more. Also, if we are going to get on the subject of youngest members, I am probably up there.

Thanks for checking in!  Glad that you're making good use of the site tools. Don't be a stranger on the forums, this is a nice and helpful group of collectors and gamers.

Actually I joined on one of the Friday the 13ths. In April 2012. lol

Whatever really since my bday is June 13th and falls on it too sometimes! Including my 13th bday.

Not that I am super superstitious or anything. (when it comes to sports I am but not something like Friday the 13th)

Still here, I moved a few months back and my collection is in a bit of disarray so I haven't really been into gaming lately. Just got a Switch for Xmas and I bought a New 2DS XL yesterday so I'm starting to come back I guess.

Funny, nearly 4 years ago I checked in and said I was going to get back into classic gaming. A lot happens in 4 years, graduated Uni, worked odd jobs, flipped burgers, and finally started a career (hopefully). Oh, and got back into classic gaming of course! :D

I'm alive, and apparently posted in this thread about 10 years ago...  Damn I'm old.  I use to go by freak_boy and was an early member of this site.

Hey everyone! Some pretty crappy personal stuff has kept me away for a while, but I'm doing a lot better now and hoping to spend more time in this great community again. I've genuinely missed y'all.

In an attempt to spend more time playing my retro collection, I started a blog in which I play a game selected at random each week. It's called Retro Roulette (http://retro-roulette.tumblr.com) and that's gone pretty well thus far.

Hey everybody, I was an active member 2010-2012. Around the time I stopped posting I got a new girlfriend, graduated college, got a job, and life got busy. I never stopped collecting but I had most of the important games I wanted that didnít cost more than I could afford so I slowed down a lot.

I just took some time to update my collection. Itís cool to see how much it has grown since I posted those pictures all those years ago. I now have enough games to create my own 10íx10í room of doom and Iíll try to post some pictures of it.

While I was here I wanted to thank the community and those who keep up the site. I may not be active like I used to be but I still lurk from time to time reading interesting blog and forum posts. Thanks for everything you do everyone!

I have only really used this to rarely update my collection of RPG games.

where is the best place to ask about an old game 1990's I remember a piece of but not the title?

I sort of took the summer off of this I guess. But I was busy playing  too, I beat 6 modern  (as in 20 hours at least for each, thats why I emphasize that) and finished the addons in Skyrim which one I hadn't even started yet. So I just updated the  beaten category. Maybe soon I will do some reviews.

I don't know which took longer FFX or Yakuza Kiwami. The story in Yakuza is shorter but there is probably a bit more extra side stories and  which I did too of course. But I did not platinum either, they are super hard to. So they are easily the top 2 most hours spent on. Ni no Kuni comes in at 3rd where I clocked in around 98 hours. I was going for Platinum and was 3 trophies away but thought the drop rate on some of the items was ridiculous and gave up for now. Batman Arkham Origins I guess was 50-60ish doing as much as possible too. Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom took me 27 hours to Platinum. I spent a little less time on Binary Domain than Majin and the story takes less time too. BioShock was probably 30-40 hours or something. Including 2 playthroughs on different difficulties to achieve Platinum. And lastly I probably sank maybe 40 more into Skyrim doing the Addons and other side quests I hadn't finished the first time.

So I have just been busy playing . Well I have done other things too. I have had to worry about my family and nearly lost two of the people closest to me.

My dad had a heart attack April 30th. They sent him home because he was too weak at the time to operate on. Then he started feeling bad again at the end of June and on July 1st they decided he was strong enough to do surgery and so they did. I hate to say it wasn't a surprise my dad had these problems he was obese many years and only lost weight recently. As well he drove a truck for 20 years and ate mostly fast food and at truck stops. But on August 5th my youngest uncles wife had one too and she was what I thought was one of the healthiest people I knew, she even had a stint where she tried out being a vegan but didn't like it. It turns out it was fate she needs to be at least a vegetarian because she has a disorder where she doesn't process the cholesterol found in meat like a normal functioning person would and thats why her arteries got clogged. 50 some odd years of even eating healthy didn't stop the disorder from striking since she didn't know she had it. So she has no choice now. It was actually exactly 2 weeks after her 60th birthday. But she rebounded enough she still went on a plane on vacation just 2 weeks after that. So she wasn't stopped too long.

My dad has been stopped from working. He hasn't worked since the attack and hopes this next doctors visit the 27th will clear him. They won't let you drive a bus if they are not happy with your health which is understandable you have the lives of people in your hands. Its probably even stricter for pilots.

Wow, sorry to hear about the health problems with your dad and aunt. Hopefully your dad gets cleared, and can get back to work, and back to normal.

Well, look who's here!

@RobotWillie: That really sucks about the health issues with your family. Hopefully the games have been able to give you a stress break.

Yes they have, I wouldn't say its the reason I play games but playing them does help the mind forget the shitty parts of life at least for awhile.

Stay strong old pal. I wish you all the best. I sometimes miss the days of us talking and joking at SD. I'm banned for life. I hope your dad gets better or at least stable.
