Remember the guess the game thread?

Post by Calavera » Fri Jul 27, 2018 8:17 pm

That was a fun thread. It is a damn shame it was ruined by cheaters. I'll never get why those couple of people had to ruin it and cheat. It was just a fun little thing, there was like what 10 people max even playing. Why cheat? I never knew you could do a reverse image search until the cheaters were called out, so at least I learned that.

Me and Melancholy we played that shit legit. We'd be all like hmmm that looks like an rpg and from the aspect ratio and graphical quality it looks to be a PSP game. Search screenshots of all PSP RPGS!

Then the image search thing was revealed and that was the end of it. :ocry:

I don’t remember it. Who cheated?

All of life is a cheat and the internet made it too easy
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

It was you Ian, you were the cheater :o

I do remember who the two were but I don't want to say, no reason to start drama over such a thing.

They didn't even try to hide it, I'd do my best to stump everyone. I'd look through mame and pick out a screenshot for some obscure game and it would be immediately guessed When that happened I had some suspicions but still didn't think they were cheating for sure. What ended the game was when Mel posted some really obscure Japanese RPG and it was guessed in like an hour.

Actually it wasn't me, it was David. Remember David?

I recall that people said I was cheating just because I said it was *possible* to do a reverse image search.

Not a lot, though I don't talk to him near as much nowadays. Living by himself in an apartment, working...somewhere (he changes jobs a lot). He's not living a great life, but so far it's more stable than anything before now.
