So um, I'm back. I guess.
It's been a long time, I can't even remember the last time I was very active. And it sounds like that's the case for an overwhelming majority of the forum. I've sorta spent the past few weeks writing down plans for cases, and looking around the forum to see if anyone I knew years ago is still around... and it doesn't seem like they are. I guess we've all sorta moved on with our lives at this point? I mean, I understand, nobody stays in the same place forever, it just feels so... unfamiliar now.
I also felt a tinge of sadness when I came back after recently becoming invested in this series again to replay some of my favorite fancases, only for them to no longer be up or virtually unplayable due to the assets being no longer there. But then I found new fancases that came out more recently that I've thoroughly enjoyed, so that's made it a bit better.
Additionally, I've been doing some reflecting about my time here in 2011-2013 or whenever, and it's honestly embarrassing looking back at those old trials I made (or attempted to make) in how badly I mismanaged them, letting my ambitions cause me to get ahead of myself, or in literally anything else I did where I plagiarized everyone I looked up to in hopes they'll notice me and approve of me.
But now that I've matured and have better writing practices, a better understanding of what makes a case good, and have even become a fairly competent artist, and a better person I like to think, I have started writing plans for a few new fancases, and even a couple of new fan series. I don't know how many of these will come to light, or even if I'll want to do them with so few people around to show them to (other people's feedback and appreciation are a big thing that keeps me going), but I can say that I have one case fully planned, and I'm guessing 25% into scripting as of now, and I hope to have it ready for the next case competition!
So, with that kinda long "I'm back!" out of the way, ummmmm...
Hi! I'm CardiaX, or better known by other names pretty much everywhere else nowadays. I've been a member for a long time, but only an active member for a few years. My main hobby is, of course, video games. I have two YouTube channels, one where I make Top 10's about video games and run a vlog, and a group channel where my friends and I race games for fun. I've also taken up art in the past couple of years, and irregular streaming in the past few months.
And if you did know me before and happen to see this, I'm so sorry.
