Clouder reacted to Dreadknux in Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has passed away
I heard about this late last night, as the story was breaking. I'm still not sure how to handle it. I didn't know him personally, but I (as do many other people) sort of feel like I do through the games he made and his personality (via Directs, his approach to fans and gaming in general, development philosophy). He was truly a unique leader in the games industry - a CEO who knew all about the development scene and had a real innovative spark. The Wii and DS remain two of the most important game hardware releases ever, and it was all down to his leadership that they came to be.
More than anything else, he just had fun with it. He had the best job in the world, and he was the best man for that job.
I hope he's still smiling on the other side. He deserves it, for all he's accomplished.
We won't ever see the likes of him again. RIP Iwata-san.

I have a lot of respect for a lot of businesspeople in the world and Mr. Iwata is one of them.
He was charming, he made a lot of good decisions, he was one genius of a programer and all of all, a man who made being president of a company fun.
I'll miss him dearly, and my thoughts go out to who know him personally.
Clouder reacted to Stritix in Scratch That, Shadow of a Hedgehog (SoaH) is now open once more!
Apologies for the over two year bump, but I promise it's a worthwhile post.
At the start of 2013 SoaH City got hacked and closed. It was a huge attack on the site. A rough backup was restored in February 2013, however the site was at a standstill with countless issues. Since then, I have been working on the new version of the site which has now gone live. The site has been given a huge overhaul with a brand new theme, content being revamped, and much more. There are many improvements. An announcement has been published on SoaH's main site covering the new site in more detail: http://soahcity.com/2015/05/11/soah-city-is-officially-back/
The site is still under reconstruction, but a huge amount of progress has been made. SoaH City is officially back!
Clouder reacted to Nepenthe in What's your top ten Sonic games?
We already have several topics concerning one's favorite Sonic game. On top of that, we don't do list threads. Threads and responding posts are generally required to have written thoughts; at least a few actual sentences. as a general guide and lurk more to see what we look for in posting.
EDIT: Wait, you're that ban-dodger. lolz bai.
Clouder reacted to - Eternal Paradox - in [RP] The Sonic Stadium Epic: Rebirth
Display Name: Endless Paradox Overview: Paradox is a strange beast, not native to this realm. He appears and disappears from the SMMB-verse at seemingly random intervals, exploring various different dimensions but usually staying in the void of nothingness. One who thinks more than he act, Paradox is gifted with the great powers to warp space and time... but this comes at a cost... Appearance:
Stats Power: 5/5 Speed: 1/5 Smarts: 5/5 Stamina: 1/5 Agility: 1/5 Powers: Teleport - Paradox is able to teleport himself or others to any point in space - even other dimensions. Time freeze - Paradox can temporarily alter the flow of time, causing some events to freeze completely whist others continue at normal speed. However, he is completely immobile when performing this move. Walk through walls - Paradox manipulates space so that he (or others) can pass through at normally solid object. Wall walk - Paradox is able to traverse straight up walls and ceilings, ignoring the normal rules of gravity and psychics. Scythe Slash - Paradox lashes out with his scythe - although a powerful move, the requires a lot of energy and is best used as a last ditch defence. Weaknesses Using any of his powers leaves Paradox completely drained and open to attack (with the exception of wall walk and solo walk from walls). He doesn't any attack moves except Scythe Slash, and thus is best suited for a supporting role in a party. He is also quite slow and isn't very agile. Paradox is perhaps too sensitive, and is easily offended. Offence will cause him to flee to another dimension, with no telling when he'll return.
Clouder reacted to SlickEvan in [RP] The Sonic Stadium Epic: Rebirth
Display Name: Light the Human (/Light)
Overview: *Probably will leave this out unless it's necessary*
Projectile - Able to eject/throw a Lance of sorts (huehue original donut steel)
Speed - Able to execute swift, fast, combos but doesn't come close to Sanic. Very speedy nonetheless and has a quick thought process.
Weapon - Only know's how to use a sword. Only because online data bases know that he draws characters with swords
Weaknesses - Quick on his feet and with his head but can't throw a punch. He can deal damage but doesn't have enough strength to take out enemies with clean one shots or 1-2's but rather must use his evasive, speedy, maneuvers and sometimes (cause he's no Tails or anything) outsmart his opponents.
Clouder reacted to jords in [RP] The Sonic Stadium Epic: Rebirth
Display name: Jords2good
Overview: I'm the kinda guy who usually likes to work alone, but is still open to work with teammates. The fear ofe being the cause of our team failing at a task is something I usually fear. I'm also the "Do it your self" because I really don't wanna rely on someone or waste their time doing my favors.
I can relate to Dan the daniel for having bad grammar and have a hard time sharing ideas and opinions. Leadership isn't my thing, its pretty much the same thing of people relying on me and the fear of letting others down. But if it must be down then its something I'll do.
I'm known for being quite fast with my feet and able to move around quickly but since I'm so skinny a lack a power. My stamina is pretty good, I can last pretty long in a challenge but that also mean that the longer I go, the weaker my performance gets so I gotta be careful with that so I don't end up hurting myself.
I don't talk much unless I'm with people I'm close with or if I feel comfortable with others. I'm not the go to guy if anyone seeks help but I'll sure give a try if any ask for one.
I can say I can be funny at times, mostly of me doing something stupid and embarrassing myself and yet I makes me laugh.
I also like to be competitive, give me a challenge and I'll try my best to win. No matter how small the challenge is.
I probably refer to my mii and have him be a fighter mii but just not strong from smash bros 4.
Powers: I can can run pretty fast and move around quick. I take the roll of carrying various grenades around my belt. Sticky bombs, high explosive grenades, land mines, C4s, and any other crazy grenades I could find, but I'm limited to carrying only a certain amount unless I got teammates around that has a few extra for me.
I'm pretty good at aiming my throws so any throwing needed, I'm in for it.
Weakness: Being the fast weak one and not so smart, I'd probably go into action without action, especially of I got no one giving me orders or some shit. As stated I lack of power so me face to face with a muscle or someone with fighting skills is bad for me.
Edit: let me know if I over did this lol I hope this is okay.
Clouder reacted to WhoWhatMan in [RP] The Sonic Stadium Epic: Rebirth
Display name: Dan the Daniel
Overview: A 14 year old SSMB member who usually enjoys making people laugh and never afraid of calling "BULLSHIT!" on lies and false claims. He mainly visits the statuses and the computer games forum to lighten up the mood, find out the truth on a rumor or leak and also share his views on topics.
POWER OF THINKING
If Dan is in a life or death situation, he can quickly think up a plan.
Dan can tell a terrible pun to confuse and make a person stop what they are doing to tell Dan that pun was well, terrible.
Dan can get his sass on and tell a person how wrong they are or he can get the person to spit out the truth.
Due to Dan having horrible grammar, he can have a hard time sharing his ideas and opinions, not the greatest fighter, and he is prone to get ahead of himself and make too many promises.

Clouder reacted to Carbo in New Challengers Approaching
Recently, two of our long-time staff members, Sean and Pelly, resigned from their mod activities. We here at the SSMB Staff are forever grateful for the influence they have had on these boards during the years and will miss them dearly. We would like to take this opportunity extend our heartfelt thanks to them for their years of service.
With the stride that Sonic Boom is hitting and the heated discussions on the boards the Staff has done some thorough discussing, and we decided to recruit some active and varied new blood to fill the void. These are familiar names you might know, and we're very excited to bring them on board.
Many of our members might have had a keen eye already to the details, but without further ado, please welcome SuperLink, Azukara and Ogilvie to the moderator team!
