Right, so I saw the folks saying didn't even bother to post a defence and here is my reason: there was no point. I've not felt needed in the chat for the simple reason that for the most part there hasn't BEEN a chat. Everytime I have come on to the site to see what it was like chat has been pretty much dead. And if there were folk in there I can guarantee half of them had rights anyway. When a new game drops and chat is more active then yes, I would have probably come around more. But I also have to take into account that I have a busy life now with a lot of responsibilities. When I first joined this Wikia I was much younger, had a job with few time constraints and had the energy to give my all to this place. Then life got harder and shitt…Read more >
With everyone leaving recently, this probably couldn't have come at a worse time. I have been feeling a little disjointed in chat recently and I have stepped aside for various reasons that certain people are aware of. I am not leaving per say, I just will not be around as much as I used to be (ie every day). I will still check for messages and occassionally come in to chat, but it will become a rarer occurance. I love each and every one of you very much and I hope that the move and everything goes great. I shall not be migrating with the site, I am not fond of the Curse lay-out but I do not chide those who prefer it, each to their own. I wish you all the best, I do hope to still speak to you all, this "farewell" may not even last that long…Read more >
I thought this morning, I wonder if Wikia has a Smartphone app? I know it has a mobile site but when I searched the Android Market it came back with Wikia Gaming. Even though it includes our dear Vault, it doesn't have all the features I wish it had (ie access to profile, access to chat).
So, here is my questionRead more >
THIS IS ONLY WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN SO FAR SO PLEASE DON'T BE HARSH IF YOU READ IT!
The ground shook sending a ripple of unease through the group that was gathered in the main chamber. Ever since the bombs dropped the Earth seemed to be revolting, with quakes becoming the commonplace norm. As if the nuclear blasts hadn't been enough. The lights flickered overhead, the threat of darkness enveloping the expanse. The crowd murmured whilst taking in all they could in the failing light. The room was large and drawings depicting the chaos scattered the walls; documenting the destruction for future generations. At the front on a raised platform stood Master Hanford, the man in charge of keeping the peace in the face of ensuing panic. Few faces were t…Read more >
There are oft-times disagreements as to the merits and downfalls of each particular game. I usually try to shy away from such disagreements since I enjoyed both games for different reasons. But I thought I would write about what I think are the ups and downs of the games because a) I wanted to write a blog post and couldn't think of anything else to write about at this time and b) I wanted to defend both games in the face of opposition.

Fallout 3 was Bethesda's "here we are, rejuvenating a series in a different format" effort. Previous games had worked, which is obvious from the staunch support they receive …Read more >
