Vintage Eric - Eric - Sep 28th, 2018

Hi Universalgaming!  I missed Universal Gaming.  I missed Moony.  I missed the E3 topics and I missed all of the random gaming threads.  But most importantly:  I missed you.

I don't know how all of this Yapatalk business happened but I'm assuming that Moony said f*** this and hosted on his own altogether, and I think that is awesome.  Yay for independence.  Anyway, glad to be here and finally in a point in my life where I'd like to start a gaming podcast again lol.  Maybe I'll share it soon!

Also super glad I can still call dibs on Eric.

See you guys in the 'verse.

Basically, Tapatalk purchased ZetaBoards and closed down the service as of yesterday. All boards were migrated to Tapatalk, with those that weren't being no longer accessible once the servers were turned off yesterday. TT offers virtually no decent customisation and is a downgrade of even InvisionFree, let alone ZetaBoards. Therefore, like quite a few ZB board owners, I decided to restart the board on self hosted MyBB.

Anyway, welcome back to the community Eric! Smile

Good to see you back on UG, Eric. Long time no see.

See you have Spoderman as your avatar. Quite a companion to your "Marvel Nerd" title. Not doubting you because I can only barely call myself a fan, but how much do you read or watch Marvel?

Good!  Just moved into a duplex downtown where I live.  It's in the hood, but it's cheap.

I don't blame you for doing what you did.  Plus, hosting your own forum is so much fun with mods.  Hope it's cheap.

Spoderman lol.  Well, I'm kind of a filthy Marvel casual because I've never read the comics.  I've watched all of the Marvel movies and TV shows, and just finished Spiderman on PS4 (incredible game).  What about you?


RE: Vintage Eric - lp0 on fire - Sep 29th, 2018

So what are your PC specs? Whistle


RE: Vintage Eric - Kyng - Sep 29th, 2018

Welcome back to UG, Eric! Good to see you again Smile .

I'm similar actually. Well, I do own a number Deadpool comics from 2008-2012 or around that, and Deadpool Corps. Wasn't collecting religiously, though. Watched about half or so of the MCU, both Deadpool movies, films from 2000's, and have played Ultimate Alliance 1 & 2, Deadpool video game and Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (vanilla). By the amount of times I've mentioned him, yes Deadpool's my favourite Marvel character. Got three T-shirts of him, two as received gifts. I've even got a Lady Deadpool figurine. I haven't decided on/found a decent enough normal Deadpool figure yet.

To be fair I think most people who watch the Marvel movies haven't read the comics. I know I haven't. Tongue
Since you're a Marvel fan, you'll probably like this thread: Marvel Cinematic Universe


RE: Vintage Eric - Moonface - Sep 22nd, 2020

Since it's been a while since you've been here (welcome back by the way), how have things been for you since you were last here? Also I'm curious, what made you suddenly drop back in? XD


RE: Vintage Eric - Eric - Sep 23rd, 2020

I think that I never intended to leave to begin with, but my life has been kind of a roller coaster since I left last time. I moved back to California from Indiana some time in mid-2019 after I hit a depressive slump. I was over customer service and being bottom of the corporate food chain, but the only way that I could make school work is if I moved back in with my parents to save money, so here I am. School is a pain in the ass but that's another story.

Discord has picked up steam these past few years, and so most of my community chattin goes that way nowadays, so I regret that to say that for a brief moment, I had forgotten about UG - at least until Twitter brought me back when it was the UG page of all places to break the PS5 price news to my feed. With the Xbox being top of the hype train right now and most of my friends not really into gaming, I remembered that I had old gaming friends here too! I wanted to see if you guys wre talking next gen and sure enough, you were! So long story short, here I am lol.

Thanks for the welcome back, by the way!


RE: Vintage Eric - Moonface - Sep 23rd, 2020

Yay Twitter was actually useful for once. ROFL

Sorry to hear how things were going for you, but I'm glad to hear they're getting better! Smile
But yeah, we're still all here. I need to remember to add you on PSN since I don't think I have your new ID. Or maybe you'll beat me to it and add me first, who knows? Tongue


RE: Vintage Eric - Eric - Sep 23rd, 2020

Haha, deal! The one in my profile is still the one I use, but with my impulsive XSX purchase today I think that my online access for it will be gone by the end of the year, sadly. If you end up joining Gamepass at some point, you should add me there too! Hell, at this point feel free to add me on social media if you want. Maybe you'd fancy browsing my amateur photography. xD

Even if you can't play online at least we can be in touch on it and see what each other are up to. Tongue

I tried finding your Twitter since you said you follow the UG account but I couldn't figure out which follower you are. D=
Or do you not follow it and somehow had it appear in your feed by pure chance? ROFL
