Simply Put: How Is Everyone?

I haven't had much time as of late to actively participate in the forums. I do attempt to read through a lot of discussions and general topics, but while the reading may entertain or intrigue at times, I don't feel I possess the same connection I once did with my fellow members. This is likely a result from my decrease in actively engaging individuals in conversation and debate after having taken on a more observational approach to the forums due to lack of time, or sometimes just a lack of interesting content. So I thought, why bother creating a thread with a specific discussion to try an engage people? Why not just do what it is I wish to accomplish, and that is to just talk to you guys. To engage the lot of you as I once did. So, simply put... How is everyone? Is life treating you well? Any new or exciting events you wish to share? How excited are you for Destiny? Are you striving towards any goals at the current time? On my end, I'm particularly busy working but my wife and I are happily married, living day to day. I'm hoping in the next few weeks to maybe have time to pick up one of the few new big titles that have been released but I might wait for their next-gen versions when I pick up a next-gen console. I still haven't decided on PS4 or Xbox one but I'm sure my decision will be heavily based off of what the majority of my friends get. I'm pretty excited for Destiny and haven't had a chance to listen to the podcasts but I hear they're worth a listen. Oh I'm also in the process of trying to concoct a tasty hot sauce for wings or breaded chicken. Any tips would be awesome! Oh and does anyone else feel like this year just zipped by? I can't believe I'm already hearing Christmas music and commercials!

  • This isn't very Helveck of you. Thankfully dragons were still involved in the making of this thread. I'm fine, by the way.

  • You should use shaved Mexicans for your hot wings! [spoiler]I have no idea why I said that, but I suppose it's a product of staying up too late.[/spoiler] Anywho, I can't complain. Cleaning stuff up, setting things on fire, started playing Xbox again because I bought myself Halo Wars.

      Tenaciously positive. Stumping up the cash to go abroad in February. Trying to spend as little as possible. Bad news is, I've had a lot to pay out for, and rare opportunities have come up. The good news is, I'll have my laptop back in Tuesday. :D Also, I'm features editor for an Xbox site now. It's not paid, the entire team does it in its spare time, but it's excellent experience, and they get press releases and review builds and everything. :D

        • Busy. Very busy. Haven't played Xbox in a while now, sadly. Trying to adjust to my new time schedule. Making a short film. Working two jobs. Women. You know how it is ;-)

              Could be better. The only thing I see exciting is the upcoming event: DESTINY!

              Personally, I can't believe it's already November. Almost time for the bungie.net Schwippy Christmas Tree again! It feels different being on the verge of another "next gen" transition. Literally, we're weeks away being the last time was over 8 years ago. Right now it's Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Netflix, more lumber is required, and trying to keep gaming (if you can get in the Hearthstone beta, do it). It's quite rare for myself in recent weeks from work. I was just talking with a friend this morning about how we think the Bungie Community is having a hard time making new friends through gaming because we no longer have a "go to" game that everyone is playing. I hope Destiny can certainly ignite the flames for everyone getting online all the time. Also, I've been heavily trying to brainstorm PAX for next year, talking with friends etc. This next year is going to be a big transition. Also, you need to check out the podcasts.

              • Things are fun. I'm in my final year of Computer Science at Western Washington University, and I've begun the fun process of trying to figure out what I'll do after I graduate, be it Internships, a Job, or getting a Masters. I feel I have the aptitude, I just need to get to work on polishing up my knowledge base and getting a crap ton of experience, probably through working on various whimsical game projects. I just need to get my work ethic sorted out and the path before me should start to open up.

                • Truth be told I'm pretty tired at the moment. I'm studying Astrophysics, and at the moment it's picking up pace, and I was letting myself get complacent so I'm having to step up a gear to keep on top. However, since I'm [i]really[/i] not a morning person I tend to stay up late to get things done...which then means I can hardly get up, so I stay up later in order to get things done. I'm pretty certain it's not sustainable. But, apart from that, things are going pretty well thanks! I'm watching through Batman TAS with a friend between and after lectures, plus I picked up the first two Arkham games again for cheap so thoroughly Batman-ing it up - something I can wholeheartedly recommend! Apart from that, I'm beginning to learn Japanese (which is proving far harder than any European language, and I'm surprised I didn't expect that) and I'm finally getting around to reading Sherlock Holmes, which has been sitting on my shelf for over a year now. So yeah, that's me at the moment. Getting back into winter clothes happened back in September over here, the East coast is chilly to be sure, but it is nonetheless quite terrifying to consider just how close it is to 2014! I remember 2010 coming around like it happened just the other day, and now we're just a year away from Back to the Future Part II...

                • As old as I am and as long as I've played halo, I've only just begun to get on the forums not even a year ago. Still trying to figure people out, find out who actually posts good or interesting threads. I never met u in your prime but I heard that your a pretty cool guy. Hahaha although the New Helveck seems like a borderline stalker. Life's been decent. I'm in my 3rd year of high school. Classes are absolutely hell, and I only play games on weekends, but somehow I find time to work on a couple of videogames I'm making :P I'm also on the football team so that takes up more time. Other than that I spend a lot of time on the forums, posting threads, hosting community game nights, and working on a sort of Destiny encyclopedia on Bnet with a fellow clan member.

                  Not at my best, but definitely on the verge of a something great. Grades for Midterms came back a little better than expected, which is good since I'm hoping to transfer to a new school next Semester. Going to join AFROTC while I'm at it. Plus, I'll most likely be able to bring my Xbox with me to school this time, so hopefully no more issues with having to go for a month or two without having to wait to play a game over a single weekend. The internet there will also hopefully be better, so I can play Minecraft with friends again. Past few years have been kinda rocky, so it's nice that things are finally looking up! As for your hot sauce dilemma... Ghost Peppers. I'll give you THREE Bungie bucks if you film your reaction.

                  • I'm doing better than I've been the last few years. I won't be sticking around the same if I don't enjoy Destiny. Certainly busy with life though. One of my goals is to produce something amazing with modern media. I'm on my way there and with something great. No short static work though, so it will be a long time coming.

                  • I'm doing great. Reduced my gameplaying, spending more time with the wife, and watching/going to Caps games. I look around here almost every day but I don't post that much. As for Destiny I canceled my preorder as I am putting gaming way low on my priority list. I am planning on getting myself some guns and spending time at the range and hopefully taking a nice vacation next year. Unfortunately it will not be back in Toronto. :( Maybe Montreal or a cruise to see some Newfies.
