873ArticleVaporman87With regard to the Parade, I've come to appreciate it more through the years. Sure, I watched it growing up... and loved it with all the fervor a child can muster, but now I enjoy it as the start of great things to come. Seeing and appreciating all the work that goes into an event like this is something that comes easier to an adult. And I'm always amazed at how well everything turns out. Some of our newer traditions include a trip down the road to the home of some family friends, where their family gets together and enjoy a great meal and good conversation. This is something I never had growing up. Our Thanksgivings usually just consisted of our immediate family, and that still holds true. Family troubles, death, and other circumstances have left me and my wife and kids virtually alone to celebrate holidays. Going out to these folks' home gives us a taste of those big family get-togethers that you usually only see on t.v. And, probably my newest Thanksgiving tradition, is sharing my thoughts and memories here, with the great people who have become members of RetroDaze. Even though I have never met one of them, I feel like I have. And that means something.  Nov 27, 2013View
874ArticleFulton4VHappy thankgiving to everybody here. We will be one of those familys with 20 or more people gathered in one house. It is usually pretty chaotic but it is very fun and memorable.Thanksgiving Is Here!Nov 27, 2013View
875ArticleMissMHey Vaporman, I think one of the problems I have had with watching the parade is that I usually either sleep in or I'm up early to get things together. I am gonna try to watch it tomorrow, because it really does feel like the official kickoff of the holidays. I am glad you are able to visit with some family friends for the holiday with your family. That is nice. I am glad you have your family and friends to be with. I'm the kind of person that if someone does not have a place to be for Thanksgiving, I am forcing them to come with me. And I have to say, it is very nice to be sharing and reading these memories and traditions. I know what you mean, I have never met anyone that I have talked with and gotten to know, but I feel like I know them too. And now, with Retro-Daze, I feel like I am getting to know all new people. It is a very wonderful thing. Happy Thanksgiving Vaporman! Fulton4V- I hope you have a great Thanksgiving too! 20 or more people sounds like a very memorable Thanksgiving for sure! Thanksgiving Is Here!Nov 28, 2013View

867ArticleVaporman87Wow. That's awesome that you were able to finally complete a game that you started many years ago. That does have to be a fun and special feeling. My brother was always the RPG player in the family. I preferred the action/adventure games with real time fighting and such, as opposed to anything turn based. And, I had a hard time getting into games that used so much text instead of actual dialogue. I really don't know why, since I grew up on games with NO dialogue at all (text based OR spoken), but I think after that first time I heard "B-17 bomber" come through a speaker on the Intellivision... I felt like I wanted to HEAR the characters speak from then on. Still, I occasionally enjoyed watching the games be played through. I had some difficulty with the fact that many of the characters of RPGs were little kids. I wanted my heroes to be giant warriors with massive axes, lol. But, I've grown to appreciate the genre as the years have progressed. Now, Phantasy Star... the only Phantasy Star game I have actually played was the Phantasy Star Online game for the Sega Dreamcast. I actually spent a good deal of time playing that one with my brother in online multiplayer. I don't know if any of the story from that game tied in to the mythos of the original Phantasy Star games, or if it was something like Final Fantasy where every game is a new story, but it was a fun romp. Thanks Miss M.!The Role of Phantasy Star IIINov 22, 2013View
868ArticleBenjanimeAhh, Phantasy Star III, also known as the black sheep of the series. I still have yet to get all of the endingsThe Role of Phantasy Star IIINov 22, 2013View
872ArticleMissMVaporman- I know! It was very nice to finally finish the second one. I've enjoyed action adventure games for sure, but there is just something special about an RPG for me. I don't even know why, because on paper they sound like very boring games, but I can't get enough of them. lol I never played the Phantasy Star Online games, but I heard it was a good game. I have the Phantasy Star Zero game on the DS, but I haven't played it yet. I'm always behind on that too. lol One thing I do enjoy and love about RPGs is the music. Benjanime_ I've heard the endings are pretty good. I've only gotten past the first generation, so I still have a long ways to go. The Role of Phantasy Star IIINov 26, 2013View
864ArticleVaporman87LOL. That was funny. "I think I'm going to throw up." I have those Toy Biz figures of Jill and Chris (and some others) still in sealed on the card. Yes, the Palisades figures were superior in sculpt and paint application, but these were the first RE figures widely released here in America. Funny stuff Miss M. :)Toy Talk with Miss M- Episode 2!Nov 19, 2013View
865ArticleMissMOh goodness those Palisades figures were top notch weren't they? I miss that toy company so much. They really made some amazing stuff. I have more RE stuff from Toy Biz but I thought I'd save it for another post one day. lol This one ended up becoming longer than I had expected. lol Toy Talk with Miss M- Episode 2!Nov 19, 2013View
