    • Conrad500 Update

      3 months ago

      conrad500

      Here's an update on all things Conrad.


      1. I'm married. Very happily I might add.

      2. I never quit the internet. I did reduce my internet usage by at least 50% though.

      3. Work is the same as always. I will probably start looking for a new job so that I can make more (only way to get more money in this industry)

      4. Home life is better than ever! Since I got married, I'm able to put my wife on insurance, get her the meds she needs, which lets us go out more, which is why I've found new friends that we instantly grew very close to. Things only keep getting better.

      5. Eating healthier? We've been doing a good job so far. Gotta keep it up though!

      6. I typically walk around the park at lunch instead of napping, and I choose to stand all day at work. I need to work out more, but it's a start!


      It sucks not keeping in touch with all my friends I've made on RT and other places I've stopped frequenting, but my life seems much more full and happy since I've focused more on my home life and less on my internet life.


      Recommendations: All things RT! Mega64 (they're awesome), GameGrumps, JonTron (He's great), and Philly DeFranko (#PhillyD2020)


      Games: Overwatch, Ark, Fortnite (closed alpha currently)... I have been playing fewer games.


      IRL Games (My jam): D&D 5e (I love 4e too though!), Werewolf, One Night Werewolf, Secret Hitler, Machi Koro, Two Rooms and a Boom, Cash and Guns... too many.

      (Here's my collection/ratings: https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Conrad500 )


      How's you?

    • Opinion: The know is using clickbait and more, please stop.

      in Forums > Opinion: The know is using clickbait and more, please stop. | Follow this topic

      conrad500

      TL;DR

      Stop this shit. Please be better than the other shitty news outlets. Stop spreading bad news and using clickbait titles. I respect RT and the presenters too much to see this happen.


      1. Clickbait

      Most blatant example, Youtube HIDING Gaming Videos!

      The problem? 100% incorrect, misleading, and purposefully clickbait title.

      Youtube didn't hide gaming videos. Opting in to restricted mode restricted videos. The problem is that the algorithm is fucked (as it has been for years, this isn't new) and it's overzealous. 


      Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I just think this is clickbait, but I'm disappointed.


      2. Stop regurgitating kotaku. You might as well use wikipedia as a source.

      I use kotaku. It's the easiest, most up to date site to get all kinds of gaming news. If I ever read any articles on there about drama or controversy, I look for another source. I would not use kotaku at all if there was a reliable alternative, but I'M JUST A PLEB! You guys are a "News Outlet" and I hold your sourcing to a much higher level than my casual browsing, and even I find an alternative source for most kotaku articles I want to research!


      Offender: Steam VS FAKE Games!

      Still clickbaity title, but hey, i mean, it is accurate, so I can't blame you for it. That's not the issue here.


      In the video there's a problem RIGHT off the bat.

      First thing said after intros? "Is Steam finally cracking down on fake games... again?"

      If you're Jim "Fucking" Sterling, then yeah, this is an appropriate introduction. I've never heard The Know use the term fake games on their show or reference how much of a problem this is, yet you choose to start the episode this way. Is this because of the one video about greenlight being taken down,  now we have to think it's a horrible issue? 


      Secondly, did yall actually listen to either of the videos by TB/JS? They both heavily mention how these discussions were just that, discussions. They are talks and nothing they talked about is probably going to happen. They'll probably all evolve into a system that wasn't even discussed, because if valve is openly talking about it, you know it's not going to happen.


      You present this very fluid, very future plans as if they're set in stone. After talking about them as fact you do mention that they haven't been confirmed by steam yet, but that's a much bigger bullet point in the discussion than yall make it out to be.



      Conclusion:

      I get it. Yall are just doing what every other gaming news outlet is doing. And that's why I'm disappointed. I hold you to a higher standard and I've been using kotaku less because I can get my gaming news from you guys, but when you act just like them, it makes me feel like I need to start looking again.

    • Houston Flood Relief

      1 year ago

      conrad500

      Last Tuesday around 1A.M. my fiancee and I lost almost everything in the Houston flooding.


      I am finally able to return to work after a hefty repair to my car (which thankfully didn't get flooded) went under due to driving through high waters before the main flooding happened.


      My fiancee and I are ok. She is staying with her father near Dallas and I'm currently staying with my family (8 people in 1 house because of the floods now...) and I will not have a place of my own for at least 3 weeks.


      We lost almost everything. I thankfully kept my PC on my computer desk, which avoided the flood (I have yet to test if the moisture in the air has ruined it) so not everything is lost, but almost everything.


      Please keep us in your prayers (especially since Becca could be seeing tornadoes in the coming days...) and if you would like to help with our recovery, please check out our GoFundMe page


      Thank you.

      Monty Oum was a huge inspiration to me. He was a great guy with a great mind and infinite potential.

      And I've done nothing with his inspiration... I hope I can one day match his drive in any of my pursuits.

    • Selling PAX South Weekend Pass

      2 years ago

      conrad500

      I will not be going to PAX South sadly, but I was able to snag a weekend pass, so it'd be a shame to let it go to waste. I'll take the best offer I can get for them, but I'd like to remake my $80 back at least (More would surely help my financial situation though!)

      In the last podcast they mentioned quitting the internet. It sounds like a good idea.

      I feel you. I've been doing my best to communicate community sentiments to the people who can make changes. The community site has improvements coming this year. Pardon the dust. Many awesome faces have been hired from the community and it does suck if it seems neglected because the hiring of those community members helped RT to be grounded. I want to see this site brought to a better place too, hopefully in the next few months. Thanks, as always, for your thoughts.

I started watching all rooster teeth and achievement hunter vid 3 weeks ago and love them and happy for them to have a job just to play games and talk about games and no projects. never gone to a convention but that be awesome. at rtx if I said it right what do they do every year. also I seen they have a lot of channels of cool vids that's amazing. if u can help me to get a better idea how to get more involved with this community(cant spell) that be awesome

        youtube man. It's a convention, if you've never been to one I can't really tell you what it's like. Go with friends or meet some people to go with for the most fun. Youtube will show you a lot of the stuff that happened, but you will have to wait in a LOT of lines to get into anything.

        It's a fun convention, but some people hate conventions.

      • conrad500

        3 years ago

        People send a comment like if they've offended me or something xD

        I don't believe anyone should get angry over a friend request. They get in the way , sure, but that's only if you're super popular.

        I just like to reserve my friend feed for people I know and follow for a reason. I often brows the "Everybody" feed and usually comment more on there than I do on my friends' feeds!

        I quit using twitter because I follow so many people I can't keep up and it just makes me sad that I'm missing stuff even if I try, so I just don't try! I don't want that to happen here.

        So thank you for the request, you shouldn't feel worried about sending them to people, even if they say don't do it! Just realize that it probably won't be accepted :P

        It's no problem! Did I sound upset? I send that to people who know me too sometimes, I just have a bad memory with people I've just met or only met for a short while, so I always just ask how they know me, because if they're like, "dude, we just played a game for 5 hours yesterday" then I know who they are! (real example btw)

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.
