    I stumbled over this forum.
    From what I have read thus far, it's a nice community and I'll stick around.

    I'm more of a gamer than an anime/manga kind of guy, but I don't play very competitively.
    I did play PUBG for several months but haven't played it in several more! I have been enjoying Fortnite, but also Far Cry 5.

    I've had the same nick for about 22 years, which shows my age a bit, although there are plenty of 'phatcowses' that are not me these days.

    It's...Interesting. I mean at its heart it is a common Far Cry game, and if you have played one Far Cry or more and enjoyed it, this is all that and better. Very polished.

    If you have no religious affinity, or no care for religion in general, the story will not mean much.
    But if you care for religion, or are a nutso like me, where I was raised as a Quaker in Australia, debated the positive and negatives of religion (sober and...not so sober) with my male atheist bff for many years, and then married a woman whose parents are evangelists (married 8 years and counting), THEN the story is interesting :D

    Welcome!

    You'll fit right in here. The forum is new, but the community is pretty old (16 years :eek:), meaning that a lot of it's members are... not so young. Hehe! Many who started out as anime fans have grown out of anime.

    We have a some various gaming groups that you're welcome to join. Stickied threads in the Video games section.

    I only play on Steam myself at the moment. Currenly playing The Talos Principle. Got it on sale. It's an interesting little puzzle game where you're a futuristic robot and you have to go through different areas solving puzzles to get pieces to unlock new things. Reminds me a little of the Crystal Maze in some ways. Also playing some of the DLCs for Dungeons 2 after completing the main game. Hilarious game. Instead of playing the good guys, you play the bad guys. The narrator is so funny, plucking references from several different fantasy novels, especially Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. He's also pretty sarcastic and will berate you for doing things wrong.

    Oops, they were in the Official links FAQ thread, but I've put them in the Chat FAQ now too. Thanks for noticing.

    If using your own client:
    server: irc.rizon.net room:#sakugacity

    Otherwise, there is a web link "Chat" at the very top right of the forum next to the search icon. Must warn you though, it's fairly dead on weekends. :)

    Hiya @phatcows welcome to the forums. Like others mentioned there are quite a few people who game. I go through endless cycles of gaming, when I have free time, and switching to anime. I don't have time to do both unfortunately my family and my job doesn't let me do everything I want. Ugh adult life :rolleyes:.
