  1. I'm afraid we'll have to wait until next week for a new issue of the FAWN, we celebrated dad's and my older brother's birthday today, and I'm the type of person who tries to always put family first, if you know what I mean.

     

    I have however been looking over older issues of the FAWN, mainly just to study the layout and just overall use them as a guide for creating new ones. I've changed my mind about MMV's 5th birthday in the FAWN, instead I'll post those in the off site release section, and keep it simple with weekly releases, MMV's birthday stretches all the way back to the end of May and ends in July,  and I think I'll be biting off more then I can chew if I tried to make an issue that reaches from May to August. So let's keep it simple :)

     

    I must confess that August has been a rather rough month for me, don't worry my new position has nothing to do with it, RMH has made it clear that the FAWN is meant for one thing only: fun, it's mainly just stress from my day job and facing my own personal demons, I'm sure we've all been their before. Don't worry, I'm not saying any of this to scare you, and I'm doing way better right now as of this status update. Thank you, and I'll see you all soon.

      Sorry to hear it's been a rough month for you.  Yea please don't let the Fawn interfere with real life issues (see what I did there).  Yep like you said the purpose of it is fun.  Fun for the people reading it and creating it, it shouldn't be a hassle in any way.   And anything you want to add to it, MMV birthday stuff, articles anything at all the more the merrier really.  It doesn't have to be limited to content releases.  That's just kind of the main focus of it, so that's what the crew has been focusing on so far.  But you're welcome to expand it any way you like, get creative with it, or just keep it simple.  But yea it's up to the News Staff what you guys want to do with it beyond the main focus.  I have to say, I think you and gui0007 are going to make a really great team, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where you take it from here.  :)  

  2. My apologies for this status update following the previous one so soon, just been thinking about several ideas for the next FAWN, and I'd like to share a few thoughts before crashing for tonight. Just last month MMV celebrated its 5th birthday, so theirs a few good releases, even though they've been out for awhile, I believe it will suffice, Mugen Archive has had a few releases just a few days ago as well, but of course those will have to be reuploaded elsewhere. Also, in addition to showcasing what all has been released, I may decide to add links to video game related news articles, gotta run that one by gui0007 first. 

     

    Something else to mention, unrelated to the weekly FAWN, I would like to say that I've put the Orochi/Mizuchi Collection on hold for the time being until the forum is fully restored, in addition one collection is in desperate need of being recreated, DC Comics, and I may start this one soon, as I want it to have a layout similar to the Creepypasta Collection.

     

    It may take a bit for me to get use to my new position, and like the collections I've done, they wear all done at a rather slow pace, and the FAWN will most likely be no different, I only ask for a little patience. 

     

    With that being said, farewell for now :)

  3. I'm honored to be a part of the news staff here. I'll do my best, and hope I don't disappoint :)

  4. I finished Batman Arkham Asylum last night, and I'm about to start Arkham City. This is actually my first time playing Arkham City, I'm ashamed to admit it. Arkham Asylum was a blast, I hope what they say about Arkham City is true, it being the best licensed video game ever made and all.

      despite the entire album echoing Chester trying to say goodbye to everyone, nobody even realised he will commit suicide! A goodbye letter soo incredibly public, unnoticed! I am speechless....

  6. It's been some time since I've worked on the Orochi/Mizuchi Collection, well I'm happy to say I've finally got back to work on it. It's current total is 332 edits. I wish I was able to have gotten more edits added, but like some of us, I lost interest in Mugen for a bit their. Oh well, it happens. I also managed to get a ton of those off the Archive, now it's back to extracting and creating GIF's.   

  7. I can't believe SJW's had the nerve to call Super Mario Odyssey rascist, all becaus of a Mexican level and Mario even don's a sombrero. Some even got offended (and I use that word very loosely) over a scene where Mario uses his hat on a T-Rex. 

     

    Just another prime example of a bunch of cry babies getting offended just for the sake of wanting to be offended. These people really need to grow a brain. I mean, if you truly are that easily offended, then check into a home, because your not sane anymore.

     

    Social Justice Warriors? More like Social "Just Us" Warriors, because they care about anyone but themselves >:-(

      @Ricepigeon Vindicate? Does that mean like, if I got triggered over something a SJW said, they are blameless? So it's best just to ignore them? Sorry if I sound a little ignorant about this. 

       

      While I'm not triggered per say, nobody said I was even though I kinda sounded like it in the status update, especially after rereading it myself, I'm just tired of seeing and hearing all this bull crap they do. -_-

      What I meant was that IF I were a SJW and I actually believed some crazy shit enough to the point where I would post it online, seeing "the patriarchy" show their outrage at my opinion would only further convince me that I'm right.

       

      Sometimes to beat thy enemy, once must think like thy enemy.

  8. Yesterday I had to run a coworker to school to pick up his son.  His son is in fifth grade. He explained that his son was having issues with a bully. He had already told his son the usual thing on how to handle it, "Tell the teacher and everything will be okay." 

     

    Well, his son did just that, and nothing was ever done. In fact the teacher would just turn the kid away with the words "If I didn't see it happen then I don't believe you." She even took away his recess time on one occasion for "lying."  This has been going on for awhile, and this Thursday his son came home with a  bruise on the back of his head. The poor kid has just gave up at this point, and he told his dad. Since nothing was done about it his dad just told him if he has anymore trouble to just strike back. And here is where it just goes from bad to worse. Although his son did stand his ground and actually did put the bully in his place, the teacher, who turned a blind eye all this time, sends him to the principal's office. Thankfully the principal was a bit more reasonable and has actually had similar incidents with this teacher. The only down side is that my coworker's son got suspended for one day, the upside is that the bully has been suspended for a whole week. I personally think his son should not have been suspended, and I personally don't blame him for telling his son to fight back, especially since the teacher was being a snob. 

     

    My personal thoughts on this: This tells me that all these anti-bullying campaigns that are advertised are nothing more then a big joke. If the teachers and sometimes principals aren't doing anything about it  and eventually the victim will snap, thus taking matters into their own hands. Imo this is what causes the majority of school shootings, granted some are done because some people really are that messed up, but hopefully you get what I mean. Worse yet, when such incidents occur, the media always blames video games, music, gun manufacturers, and in some worse cases the parents. In some cases the bully will get off scott free. This is just one issue where your damned if you do something about it, and damned if you don't. 

     

     

    Comments? Opinions? Thoughts? What do you make of this situation?

      This is just a result of why bullying is always a problem. People don't want to deal with it, they wouldn't have to if it weren't for immature students starting trouble, if the bullies understood that what they do is a waste of their time, then bullies wouldn't be a problem.

       

      But bullies exist because that's just how our world is, there's people out there that are just plain evil & heartless. Lazy teachers and false assumptions are just some reasons why bullying is a major problem in the world. They're the younger equivalent to criminals.

  9. I figured I'd show off some swords from my collection. While most of them are katanas, some are replicas based off anime and video games. I've got three to show for the moment:

     

    The Master Sword as it appears in Twilight Princess, but with a silver paint job around the grip, and the Elucidator from Sword Art Online.

      @Darklight Sweet, I'm still looking for that one myself. I've also got some swords from Bleach, Blue Exorcist, and Scorpions Katana from MK: Deadly Alliance. What others do you have bud?

      Nice collection. Whenever I get a permanent place of living, I'm thinking of buying a keyblade for the wall of some sort and hanging my katana up there too. The katana is nothing special, just a katana.

      @RobotMonkeyHæd if worst comes to worst, will this community (MFFA) be able to stay up and running if privacy becomes a problem? Can HTTPS be configured to this site?

  14. My parents sadly had to cut their vacation short, mom fell and broke her wrist. It's rather baffling, they was just walking around seeing the sights, and mom tripped over her feet, it wasn't even that bad of a fall, it's unfortunate as they really needed this vacation, everyone in the family even said they needed and deserved it. Her wrist may need a cast or splint, but other then that she's alright.

      Nobody else could've taken care of your mom so you still could've gone? Well, did you get a refund?

       @SSBK65 I'm afraid I don't know the full details, I'm just repeating what my mom told me. As for the vacation this was just a trip for my mom and dad, a ten day vacation to be exact, I think a Valentines treat of sorts. This was just spare money that they wanted to spend for fun, nothing in particular was planned, and no work was scheduled for this week and everyone was off, so it's not a big deal whatsoever.

      I'm more of a shooter and fighting game person. If you can play online, that's still a good option. Otherwise, a really good single player game that can last you.

       

       

      Or just go outside.

      Likewise, I also enjoy survival-horror, and hack' n' slash. I'm not too big into online, though I will play it occasionally

       

      As for going outside, don't need to tell me twice, as much as I like gaming, It's not enough to keep boredom at bay, at least for me. That when I usually just go cruising around town. :) 

  16. I've added quite a few new characters to our KoF edits collection. Many thanks to everyone for your help. I'll try to get back to work on the Orochi/Mizuchi collection sometime later this week ;)

      thanks bruh!

  19. It's been awhile, my family and I are taking it day by day, and I know everything's going to be fine. Grandma passed away peacefully in her sleep, her death was tough to endure, and the fact that I was one of the pallbearers only made it tougher, but I'm doing alright.

     

    Also, I understand I have a knack for posting some rather sensitive things, and I feel like I owe an apology to everyone here, I don't know why, but that's just how I feel. My main reason for posting as such is the fact that I like hearing others opinions on stuff like that. I know that may sound strange, but that's just me being me, and I would never post anything to cause trouble or to insult anybody, that's a promise. :bow:

     

    With that being said I should be able to return tomorrow, I miss this place. :ReallyTruly:

      It's life, death will happen to us at one point, it's a painful feeling to get through though. And some of us post life related issues around here, don't be afraid to say what you want. See you then WR.

  20. It's been a very rough month for me and my family, even though business is slowly starting to return. Not long ago mom got a phone call from my dad's sister, (in truth he's my step dad, but I've always thought of him as my actual dad). Their mother is dying, her kidneys are shutting down to be exact. Worse she has no idea she is dying due to her also having alziemer's disease of which she has had for years, and it's gotten so bad that she doesn't know who any of us are, even showing pictures of the family don't help much. The doctor says she has until about the end of this month but it could be any day now. She's not suffering or in any kind of pain. Still, even though she isn't my grandma, she was always very sweet, she actually got me into to handheld gaming, as one of her Christmas gifts to me was the original Game Boy. My brother use to call her frog lady when he was real little, because she loved frogs. She even had her house decorated with them. I can still hear him asking mom, "Can we go see the frog lady?" I miss those years, and I'm definitely going to miss her. :'(

     

    So for now, this is goodbye.

      I feel you man. My paternal grandmother has been suffering from Alzheimer since more than a decade too. Before she was still consciously aware of her surroundings, but few years ago she became very sick for a while and after that she was unable to do anything... she's bedridden, semi-paralyzed and can't recognize anything at all... I'm actually sad of the fact that I didn't know what kind of person she really was, since she suffered from that disease when I was a toddler...
