Can't believe it either. I used to tell that story about being on insidetheweb's GoldenEye 007 boards where I met Pelord; the community was centered around Ænema's board (Eon_Blue at OCReMix these days; his board was The Goldeneye Archive Files). The story was something about introducing Pelord to the Simon Wai Sonic 2 Beta website, which was serendipitous as he preserved the site during some kind of interstitial period...

Can't even remember the details anymore. I'm still happy to see SubDrag working on GE007 stuff (updating even just a few days ago!). His name was one of many I saw on those ITW boards back in 1998/1999, when we were still debating the existence of a GE007 beta, desperately searching for Oddjob/Mayday and the All Bonds code from EGM, and forever waiting for a moon jump/Y-coord Gameshark code to surface...

If any of those old faces ever see this -- DaScoob, West, Wreck, Æ, SubDrag, E-man, Bad_Boyz, BUDSMOKAZ, the members of the AAB3:16?, Rob (who legitimately beat Egyptian with 007 Mode maxed out) -- ØØ2 says hello.

By the way, did anyone ever track down DreamTR's Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon prototype? I didn't have the $450 to buy it 11 years ago, and whoever snagged it hasn't dumped it...

I've been a 'lurker' here for quite a long time, perhaps close to 5 years, but I didn't sign up until earlier today. Boy, I wish I had signed up back then! Perhaps one day, I too shall be an 'Oldbie'

EDIT: OH AND ONE OTHER THING. I always remembered the Jun Senoue reacted to Sonic Crackers story and decided to surprise him with the Mars script at a Summer of Sonic event. I showed it to him and he thought I wanted his autograph on it for some reason and I explained what it was. He was very upset I had it and kind of scoffed me away after that. Not a happy end :v:/>/>/>


This needs more context. why would he be soo upset at an old concept like that?

Because if the Mega Man Legends 3 snafu taught us anything, it's that Japanese game developers hate the idea of the public getting their unworthy mitts on anything beta-related about their games or having any say in the game's development. Outsiders are never supposed to see anything but the finished product, and should have no input on any of the games' features.

Long time has passed. I cant even remember much of when I joined.

I had applied here and on SSRG, and a certain admin liked my post on SSRG and liked me, and let me into Retro.

Hung out in the IRC and was even apart of that "Sonic 4" project that went no where.

Fun times.

Now a days, I just occasionally lurk to see what's up. I should get back into the IRC for old times sake.

I lurked around in Sonic Cult back in 2005 or so. Didn't actually start discussing prototype Sonic stuff until I joined this place.
