    The thread title... a line I use to trademark when entering lobbies.. The silly follies of a 16 year old kid.. A time that brought me much fun and happiness and introducing me to the online world.. an experience of a lifetime that I would never forget.

    Its hard to believe it’s been 17 years.. and it saddens me that so many great memories and people, even those who were close to me are lost in the crevices of my memory. I’m barely holding on to what and who I do remember.

    Good memories of seeing Chaos in the lobbies almost 24/7 and when we use to go to episode 3 lobbies, fighting over the Juke Box songs.. Special Relaxies was my favorite.

    Coffee, Eternal X, Evolove, Alucard (typo), the infamous Optimus Prime and his homeboy Bonez. If he was truly crippled, I’ll never know. But the many bouts we had and trying to protect the community from his FSOD antics; stealing his guild card and passing it out to the community so they could block him as we moved the community to a different ship sever so he couldn’t search/find people to FSOD them. Ha... fun times.

    Blunt (wasn’t close with him but made an impression on a newbie many years ago),

    Sodaboy... Showed me the ropes and had some good times until I selfishly got mad he didn’t allow me use his proxy lol smh. The growing pains of a young kid. Also, introducing me to World of Warcraft where I spent the next 16 years and met dear and lasting friendships. Thank you for that sir.

    Mew, one of the sweetest and kindest individuals I’ve met throughout my entire experience of playing this game. Perhaps it was in EP 3 I first remember her from.

    R from Episode 3. One of the best strategist of the game ever.

    Nymphetamine from Ep 3. Good friend.

    And there are many others that pains me that are on the top of my brain that I can not recall; some of which I use to communicate with in AIM.

    Also there was another Proxy user I use to communicate with... young kid at the time that created his own Proxy and was trying to teach me C+ language? Forgot his name... but a good fella.

    So many great memories in episode 2 and ep 3. I played a lot more ep3 towards the end of my time playing but still switched over to ep 2 lobbies. We started a movement to recruit and revive ep 3 because of its inactivity and we succeeded having full lobbies and full tournies. Very fun times.

    Pso has always had a special place in my heart and will always hold it dear. Glad to see the community is still going strong. I had to pay respects to a community that shaped my childhood and which also was a link to other integral people currently in my life. Thank you Pso and thank all who played a part in it.

    The Dutchmaster is out the house!

Holy Crap...where to start....Normally, mew'd be whiskers deep in her Topless Siren's rant about 'Nostalgia' yadda yadda yadda...but Dayum! Many of your old Battle buddies are not only still playing dear....they're HERE! Your mew hasn't seen Chaos-kun in Ages...still have his GC# when he Did pop by Ephinea its early years. Think Evolove-chan too. Alucard-kun may not have visited or stayed long...Coffeeees might be haunting the forums too....Well...as you can see Soda-Samas is doing Quite well as our server God and keeping us Happy and Not Killing each other~! As for that F%$#ER Prime and his cronies (can't believe mew is even wasting keystrokes on that Slinky's name{Evil giggle at "Slinky"}) ...They're where they belong....AWAY from players who want to experience PSO the way it was MEANT to be played~! *Takes a deep calming breath hiding her fangs while talking* You'll find Ephinea just as you remember last logging off PSO Dear...just.......BETTER~! Looking forward to POUNCING and PLAYING wiff you again soon! Welcome HOME!

    Wow Mew.... it’s been sooo long! It warms my heart to see a familiar face and even more to so see your bubbly and infectious personality is still in tact. You’ve always been a ray of positivity and I’m not surprised that you’re still an integral part of the PSO community; you and Soda for that matter. Original pioneers ^.^!

    So many good memories. I’m glad to hear that old friends are still around or have at least popped in. PSO has that lasting effect on people. It’s been 16 years (didn’t mean 17 earlier. Don’t want to add an extra year on my age haha) since I’ve played and I still remember... Haven’t forgotten... and was still compelled after all of these years to check in. PSO is just special like that!

    Life is just so hectic right now. So much going on in the world. Primarily just trying to keep up with my faith and all the other craziness happening. I’m not sure if a return is possible at this time, but I do plan on poking my head in here to check in and hopefully to see some old friends.

    This just made my day. Can add another moment where Mew’s positive attitude has affected someone for the better. That’s one thing that hasn’t changed since I logged off PSO 16 years ago ^.-

    *Tilts tiny head at* There's prolly reasons why you can't exactly simply continue PSOing as you deserve to ATM. Just know that we'll be here waiting wiff open paws upon your return luv! Worse case scenario....you can always do what Aleron Ives-Samas does and simply HAUNT the forums with postings here and there~! Keeping in touch, neh? <3!

    It would be nice to be able to do so. Logging back in to Pso... hearing the music.. soundtracks... the nostalgia would be like no other as PSO holds a special place in my life. Then to play with old friends like you and the opportunity to meet new ones, a dream come true. I’ll come running at the first opportunity.

    I just have to douse the many flames that RL (rl sucks) has surrounding me at this current time into the foreseeable future. I’ll have my fire cap on hosing away though! Until then, I will be a ghost and haunt the forums from time to time. Checking the forums is only an internet browser away ^.~

    Nice to see you again Mew.

    Dittos Luv~! Yes, IRL is the BANE of even the Staunchest PSO Warrior! By the sounds of it, IRL is ALL UP in your face while you're Fighting the Good Fight! Surprisingly, with ppl returning to work and school...things might level out... Unless the Elections brings an end to all world peace yadda yadda yadda...and we ALL end up playing PSO on some kinda battlefield phone monitors in some bunker! XD! But we hear you luv! Just remember while wearing your fire cap, NO Amount of water can put out the Stalwart embers of your desire to PSO! You WILL persevere~! Originally mew wanted to set this to Eminem "Til I collapse"....But she felt this mewish voiced Nightcore may be better... >=3! We'll be Waiting patiently, dear!

    Thank you for the encouraging tunes. I watched some gameplay this morning and the desire to return is indeed strong. To think I can relive Pso over again.. experience that magic again... that’s an opportunity I don’t want to miss out on. The fire is indeed burning ^.~

    Wow! Dutch?? It's been soooooooo long.

    I played (during the EpIII revival/end times) mostly as Tyler (green RAcast) - but also as Miroku (purple FOmar) and Miles (tails - although I think there were others sharing this name)

    Mostly hung around with Floie, JTHM, Kyo, Mew, Nymph and you of course. There are many others, but just as you said they live just past the farthest reaches of my memory, although just reading through your post brought so many of them right back to the forefront! Such nostalgia!

    I have such fond memories of those days- just chilling in the lobby to special relaxies... (of course lol) waiting for tournament matches... spectating some truly amazing games between the best of the best players... recruiting new members and reviving what we could of the EpIII community back to some of it's former glory... and generally just hanging out with some of the best friends I've ever had.

    I'm so glad you posted, it really takes me back. I'm a long time lurker as well, the toils of life ebb and flow- but I try and check back/play again for as long as life allows me - usually a few weeks to a few months - a few times a year. Perhaps now is that time for me to come back, and maybe you can squeeze some hours in here and there and play as well! (is Halloween live yet? I need that lobby music and some rappy hunting in my life!)

    Anywho, either way I hope you're doing well my friend, thanks for taking me back and making my day!

    :D
    Omg yes duuuuuude!! Tyler and Miroku were your ep 2 characters I believe and tails your ep3 character? You were who I was talking about specifically when I mentioned communicating on AIM; Rappy in your username? Believe so. Can’t remember. So many different Alias it made it difficult for me to recall a single one and I apologize about that but I had you specifically in mind because we hung together like 24/7. And yes, I do remember Floie, JTHM, Kyo, and of course Mew!

    I even recall when I popped up in the PS2 version a few years later lost in all the unfamiliarity and you found me haha. Then you brought me back to the gang for me to see that they were all still playing. It just lacked the same magic that EP2 and 3 had and I faded away... Bro...what fun times. Especially the EP 3 revival movement. You were right a long with me and we both were there from it’s inactivity to blossoming into full lobbies and tournies; even people spilling into Lobby 2 at one point! Helping to build the community and then getting stuck in lobby 2 haha. Was all good though and just happy that people were actually having fun again.Those were truly epic times.

    We spent countless hours, weeks, months, recruiting to help rebuild the EP 3 community and it was indeed successful and healthy for that period of time. It truly was a movement and unquestionably one of my favorite and treasured memories in all of my gaming history dating back 16 years ago. We worked hard trying to build that community and had a lot of fun in the process. Couldn’t have done it without you bro. A magical time indeed. It’s so great to hear from you as I hoping if anyone popped up from the past, it would be you.

    JTHM!! What’s going on bro?? Yeah man, those were some epic times. We had a lot of fun. The EP 3 revival/revolution is the most genuine fun I’ve had in just about any video game, ever lol. Even having to deal with Optimus and Bonez.

    Him following me to Ep 3 wind up being better for the community because FSOD’ing ep 3 players didn’t result in the loss of any thing (except time rebooting your console) unlike in Ep 2 where it would delete all your unequipped items : /

    While he was jerk and a thorn in the community, it added to the experience weirdly enough and brought the community closer together in trying to protect against his antics.

    One of the funniest memories was sending messages to the community to meet in this random ship/server where I passed out Optimus Guild Card (that I stole) so that everyone could block him so he couldn’t search/find to FSOD the lobby. It was like Dumbledores Army meeting in the secret room of requirement haha. Us all sitting in our Photon chairs while I passed out his guild card. Then having scouts finding strays in the regular lobby bringing them to the new location. The fight against organized crime. Ha, fun times.

    It’s cool to see you’re still around bro.

    Yeah man it’s always good to see people from those good days make their way back sadly my laptop took a dump a bit back but I used to try and hop on here every once in awhile. Been having the itch again recently and figured I’d just put my GameCube copy in and playing offline but not quite the same.

    one of my crowning moments back in the day I remember messing around with the proxy and some word select commands and accidentally found a fsod that hit proxy users still (I hit myself with it which is how I found out lol) and I purposely went on the hunt to hit optimus with it and man that was a fantastic moment I have to say being a 15-16 year old haha.

    hopefully I can fix my laptop sometime soon and get back in the game but either way nice to see you here

    Haha. That’s awesome dude. Revenge is sweet. Yeah man, seeing all these old friends definitely has me wanting to come back. I still have my original GameCube and my memory card... but I allowed my little brother to use my GameCube for a while and found out that he deleted my Pso guild card information to make room for one of his games >.<. I was livid. I could still strangle him to this day over that lol...

    But the itch to play is real. Very real.

    Anyone else still have their old GameCube guild card information?
