NWR has gone teh Casual!!! *dun dun DUH!*
« on: January 19, 2009, 08:49:15 PM »
I have just recently noticed the horrible truth that is mentioned in this threads title. It is true, NWR has gone casual. I even have pics to prove it!


Above: Proof of NWR Casualization

Above: Even the most hardcore threads, the ones where we talk smack about eachother and set up matches for some SSB-Brawl feel even more isolated than usual


For the 2+ years I've been a faithful member of these boards, our Gaming Forum (where the core audience congregated), and that was always followed by our Community Forum which housed the hardest of the hardcore forums... THE FUNHOUSE HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO STRATEGY FORUM!! Only the most elite members with 3000+ post roamed there, scaring away your standard core audience that newly signed up and strayed away from the "OFFICIAL Introduce yourself to the Internet" forum. Now with the picture above, we can see that our hard time long core members have been relegated to the 3rd tier of the Forum Index, just to make way for the more casual readers who visit solely Talk back and enjoy the NWR Staff blogs. Even our beloved Mafia games were taken out of the Funhouse.. how long before they're removed completely from these boards!?

We should have seen this coming though...

 Ever since the site changed names and were no longer known as Planet Gamecube (named after the most hardcore system of last gen and the most hardcore of space rocks) and even the change of color scheme (from a Royal Indego that screamed "ELITEST!" to the "Discrete Gray" and "Nonthreatening Blue" we have to put up with now).. we should of known better.

I say we all boycott these boards (cuz those seem to be all the rage right now, and that's what hardcore do.. ctrl+c/ctrl+v) and go pay to be some IGNsiders or something!

Who is with me!?!?

You know the "casual = I hate fun" sensor?

Isn't it a paradox that someone who hates Nintendo/Wii and loves Sony now has dominion over Nintendo fans? I fear for the space time continuum and expect it to shatter soon.

Maybe, ban hammers are like Mewtwo there. They are so rare everyone can have fun in the cesspool.

I noticed the shift of thread importance earlier today. I was going to mention it, but I think your outrage resulted in a better thread than I would have created.

Too bad there isn't a Sarcasm detector in animal crossing, i'd sooooooooo send it to you ;)

thanks, though i was hoping i could come up with better writing. To be honest, i didn't notice this until i got home and it confused the hell out of me. I was catching up on threads i'd missed over the weekend and the site layout was fine, then i come home and I couldn't find the freaking funhouse! The only real outrage was seeing that Lindy was made site director AFTER i'd posted this

If you want to spill blood at GoNintendo, just respond by telling the most obnoxious person you love them and ask if they want a hug. That will shift the tone so much that they will be jumping off the internets in an attempt to end their confusion.
