It's been a while since I've done this, and so I will do it again. To my own amazement, I've ended up administrating a secret Facebook group that grew out of the squabbles when RSP was being moderated. Essentially it's for anyone interested but especially RSP regulars (not exclusively though). It talks about RSP subjects and occasionally games. Frankly it's simply got a more casual feel than RSP.

Anyone who wants to join, just Geekmail me. I'll need a link to your facebook user page and will temporarily friend you. I normally routinely unfriend anyone I don't personally know.

Oh, my one rule is no overtly sexist or racist language-- specifically racial slurs, etc.

It was better before Chad quit, and although it's a lot more polite since Drew quit I still kind of miss him.

The invite is appreciated, but I think all the reasons I left are likely intact. I prefer the 'real' RSP.

You're just acting out because you won't be at BGG.CON this year and I'm going to let Jared get me drunk.

Why did you leave?


(just gathering info to see if I should join -- although my FB presence is pretty fucking lame).

Other than Tripp it's not that bad. Mostly we don't talk much about politics. Moshe posts a lot of Israel stuff that I just ignore.

It's true. I ignore everything Dave G posts, and you don't even want to know how I've been interacting with Tripp lately.

I kind of hoping it turns into a Titanfall matchmaking service next year. I keep thinking there's nothing especially appealing about the next gen consoles, then I think about how much I'd like to see that game in its full glory.

One of the Xbone exclusive titles. Mech combat, jump-out-of-mech combat, some kind of persistent world I think.Looks pretty cool.

One of many gushing write-ups.

Not out till 2014, though.

What made you guys decide to preorder? I haven't seen anything in the launch lineup which has me excited.

have been avoiding facebook for a year or so. It is a bit of a pain so if I decide to get back on, I'll send you a note.

Thanks.

Facebook sucks. There is no getting around it.

New game? Put me down with Peter Molyneux.

An important addendum: You do not actually have be 'friends' with everyone (or anyone) on the FBRSP group to be able to participate in it.

I don't understand the question. There's a new thing coming out, so you pre-order it. Simple as that.

Are we allowed to talk about who we block on Facebook?

Three reasons. One was personal and not terribly important. The main two were the type of discussion (less RSPish) and, most of all, the Facebook format. I hate trying to have a multi-person discussion on anything that is just a list of posts.

Is it "shirts optional"? 'Cause that's how I Facebook.

No, there's two new things (three, if you count the Wii U, which I maybe should since my kids are entering good videogaming ages). I'm Buridan's Ass over here!

No, there's one new thing, and a shitty Nintendo thing, and a overrated Sony thing. There's no choice to be made.

Also, all my friends will be getting the good new thing, so even if I wanted the overrated Sony thing I'd have no one to play with.

This thread is actually a pretty accurate picture of the group so far. The only things missing are an article on antisemitism and a bunch of beautiful Minecraft screenshots by yours truly. We could really use some unruly hooligans, in other words. It's just too relaxing.

Anybody up for a game of Pong? I'll be at the arcade at around 6pm.
