Greetings, all. I'm New...
March 12th 2018, 02:36 CET by LaReveur

Hope this finds everyone well. I'm new. My name is Mandy. Not too sure how I stumbled on this place (as I typed "planet falling to crap") as a google search (during my more cynical moments). Either way, this place seems amusing enough, so.....hi, and a pleasure meeting all of you. =D

The good news is we only have one troll left.

I haven't played any of those games. I play south park phone destroyer on my phone, that's about it. But I have a nintendo switch.

Love South Park. I'll have try that game sometime. Last time I played anything on my phone - it was Game of Thrones - despite my love of the actual show, the game only lasted 15 minutes, lol.
I played "Breath of the Wild" on my friend's Nintendo Switch, but it lagged on me. My friend told me the NS doesn't have much internal memory. So, I just stick with my XBox One.
I'm a huge gamer and Star Wars fan... so, I'm probably going to be trolled a lot for being one of the biggest nerds here, lol.
I doubt Zep /Wudi is a frood who really knows where his towel is. He just announced my thread to be a trap - and proudly waltzed right in. Well played, sir lol.

Well you may have noticed that this place is pretty dead. But we used to have some game developers posting here.

Charles worked on the first assassin's creed. Warren worked on Unreal games.

Did you read any old threads?

I read the front page threads, and replied to the "So, how's by you?" with the assumption (lead on further by the site's title) - that this was just a place for cynical realists (such as myself) to hang out and post whatever moves them.
I did catch on to this site dying by another thread.
Charles actually worked on AC? That's awesome. Does he still log in here at all? I'd love to share some ideas with him. =)

Charles is in the IRC channel, that is the most lively planetcrappy place anymore. I posted the info in the how's by you thread. I mostly idle there.

Yes we are cynical. I think we wore ourselves out and matured and facebook came along with a better model for incentivizing engagement. I mean, there's not even a smartphone app and I did not get any notification of your new post.

Ugh, Facebook - I only log into facebook to video chat with my sister and a very few select friends that I have. I got tired of seeing posts of what people had for lunch, or their constant selfie pics. I'm not saying the internet "invented narcissism," but when you see so many pointless selfie photos in a single scroll down... it does seem to cater to its pathology. Plus, I am a very private person ehrr - introverted hermit. So my online presence is scarce to my posting politics and sarcastically witty memes.
Well, I'm not a cynic due to being bitter - I just got bummed in my experience(s) with life at such a frequency, that I seem to be falling more and more into the "wish in one hand, shit in the other and see which one comes out first" mentality. So, I never get disappointed, lol. That and playing video games a lot as the ultimate form of escapism - also helps me get through the doldrums of work, lol.

Howdy new person!

For current site activity, you probably want to consider checking out the IRC channel, that's where the remaining old timers hang out.  I think someone is going to try to PM you connection info.  We talk games and current events and random nonsense.

Hello, Hugin -
Yes, I tried visiting the URL (https://thanksgabe.com/#planetcrap) address and only found a photo of a random man (assumed to be Gabe) holding a thumbs up and not much else. That would be my luck, lol.

Ah, IRC is an old chat platform that runs in a separate app (Well, there are IRC chat interfaces that work in web browsers but most of them are janky).

I'm still assuming nice people are DMing you more detailed instructions.

Well, besides South Park - I mainly enjoy Family Guy (I love Stewie lol), Stargate series, MSNBC (as I enjoy politics) Game of Thrones and not much else. I am more of a gamer / reader. You?

Ah, ok, no it's not a website. You need to use an IRC (internet relay chat)  client - there are web based clients if you google IRC client or whatever. I'm on a mac and I use X-chat Aqua.

Thanksgabe.com is the domain, #planetcrap is the channel. Gabe is one of the administrators of this site. It's kind of an inside joke that he registered that domain, as we used to sarcastically thank him for something I forget.

In the old days we would have the IRC channel as well as the website. And sometimes we would even set up gaming servers. Alas, those days are gone now.

Planetcrap is home to some of the greatest trolls in history. Jibble make a crapsifter and you can search for The_Joker if you have any doubts. There was this super crazy person who was crazy about the Judge Dredd video game.

Deadwood is still my favourite show. Lately I also watch GoT. There are lots of good shows: last man on earth, and the good place have stood out in the past year.

Wait, wtf, that was sarcasm? All these years of people thanking me and I thought it was genuine.

Yes, I love Game of Thrones - Tyrion, Jon Snow and Daenerys being my favorites.
Though I watch GoT on HBO, I've never seen Deadwood, lol. Just saw the trailer for it, it looks interesting - as it was obviously set during the 19th century - where society was more seemingly anarchic.

I was about to ask you to specify what you meant when you said in it's entirety, lol. Some of the replies are hilarious, though lol. XD

$5 says it's just The_Joker coming back from dead parenthood. Or worse, jafd being back from whatever mental asylum was brave enough to hold him and his stolen boots.

What's Elk Valley like anyway? Do you have big ass looming moose there like they do in Canada?

Please excuse the idiotic comment above.

Playing Overwatch, Pubg, Fortnite Battle Royal and Madden. Tried Kingdom Come but that game gives me a literal headache (their font being ass, I'm guessing that's it).

Next up, Sea of Thieves. I play all but Madden of the above with my kids. We tried this game in beta and absolutely loved it, just wow, the water, the storms, the sailing, etc. All great, right until we got PKed for the first time. Now I'm a bit leery since PKing sucks in almost all games, but at 10/month for the game pass, I'm willing to give it a shot.


Also, if people on here are pretending to be other people to rile us up, grow up.

It would be nice if Sea of Thieves had an actual tutorial.

I was really glad I got to try this through Battle Pass because the game is more of a tech demo at this point. A great tech demo mind you but still. Next year, when they release a full game, I'll be interested.
