Your threads that never were

Forums - General Discussion - Your threads that never were

After shaking up VGC with the original trilogy of "What are your _____ threads?",
let's continue this with the unexpected prequel of your threads that never were.

Maybe the idea wasn't threadworthy, or you just got lazy... but you can share those here :)
What are those threads you've always wanted to create but never got around doing?

Kudos to JEMC for this thread idea.

I've got/had plenty of ideas to set this up - it would be glorious but I just have a feeling it wouldnt be worth it on here.

The last time I created a thread was Jan. 2015. Right now those threads that I always wanted to make simply mean any thread at all.



Around the Network

Some of my never existing threads (apart from a MotoGP one that I think about doing every year, but I never do because I tried it once and was a complete failure) are the following (from older to newer):

1-An AMD & Nvidia thread. Last year, after SubiyaCryolite's thread about Zen & AMD's 3xx series, I thought about making a thread about the new graphic cards from Nvidia's Pascal and AMD's Artic Islands, as they were called back then before the change to Polaris. I even thought about how to make it, with the first post explaining what the thread was about and the second and third post dedicated to AMD and Nvidia respectively, showing the confirmed info and table with the rumored specs.

What stopped me from doing the thread was that back then I was kind of tired of the site and I didn't know if I would came back the next day, so I decided against it as I didn't want to create the thread and leave it unfinished.

In the end, and after zarx's departure, I started posting the gaming news on his PC thread, and I used that thread to post the new rumors/leaks that came about them.

2-A PC buyer's guide. Kind of.

Late last year, in part because of zero129's thread about building a $500 Gaming PC For Fallout 4 And GTA V, I noticed that there were more people interested in PC gaming than before, and I started wondering about why not making a thread for those that wanted to try PC gaming but didn't know where to start.

The idea was to work with three different price points (Low-Mid-High end specs) with everything included except a gamepad and a monitor (because you can play using keyboard&Mouse and you can use a TV if you don't have a PC monitor) with some alternatives for some key components, plus guides and advises about how to build a PC from the ground.

Of course, I'm not so selfish to believe that I know more than the rest and that the PC designs I could come up with where the better options, so I turned for help and ideas to the guys at zarx's PC thread. Together, we decided to work with USD, Pounds and Euros, and that the three price points would be:

Low: 700 $/€ - £500
Mid: 1,000 $/€ - £700
High: 1,300$/€ - £900

Unfortunately, and it was my mistake, we started working on the project when it was too late, and we couldn't make it on time for X-mas, which was our goal.
It was a shame, but also a blessing because while there are more people interested in PC gaming, the are also more people that attack everything that they consider a threat to console gaming, so all the project could have ended being a mess.


Off-Topic: Man, why did it took you so long to make this thread? We talked about it back in March!.

I was going to make a thread asking to help ID former member. He had a Asian man of indeterminate nationality making a....funny? face as his avatar. Like, almost a grimace. He contacted me on PSN and I lost his ID because I had to wipe my Vita data shortly after our talk. He was quite active here, yet his name eludes me.

On topic: I think I still have a big NX rumor sitting in the draft, but I am not sure if I should post it here. For weeks I was considering to salvage it by tweaking a few parts. It was originally written before E3, so certain things do not make sense anymore.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Yes! Thank you so very much!

Uhhh, I guess I got plenty of those. They're mostly sexual or deviant at its core, so it's better leaving it at that.
