    Cool.

    Do they dress up as aliens? I'd love to get fucked by a xenomorph.

    Bit of a lengthy post, bear with me!

    A very close friend of mine unexpectedly took his own life a few weeks ago after a battle with mental illness, he was only 29 and married for a little less than a year.

    He was a passionate gamer and he adored two in particular - Borderlands and Binding of Isaac. He enjoyed them so much he had about 6 or 7 tattoo's of them (Claptrap, Isaac, Meat Boy etc). He finished Borderlands over ten times and had the golden god trophy on BoI.

    We were massively looking forward to Borderlands 3 since we finished Borderlands 2 back at launch and I want to try and get him honoured in some way in the game (or BoI). It doesn't have to be major, I'd just love if there was a little nod to him in a game series he loved and was really excited about.

    I have a fair few reasons for wanting to do it; I want him remembered; I think it'd give a little happiness to his mum, dad, sister and wife; I think he'd love it; He's been looking forward to the game for so long it and it wounds me he won't get to experience it.

    I'm a social media idiot (no twitter, facebook etc) but I'll be creating accounts on these (and in forums) in an attempt to speak to the devs/publishers to try and get something accomplished. I'm not the most eloquent either so I've no hope in writing a piece that tugs on the heartstrings.

    So, the question - does anyone have any tips/methods on this gaining the most traction? I've probably missed the chance with the game being a couple of months away but if I could get him to be a part of it in any way (even a credit mention) it would feel like something to us all.

    Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

    @Rhaegyr We've done similar things with our games, contacting the community team is a good place to start.

    Randomly last night our bumbling midweek office 6-a-side football match was watched by the England rugby squad who'd just finished training in the sport hall behind us. One of my shots was so bad that Owen Farrell had to run into the bushes to retrieve it.

    Anyone else made an arse of themselves in front of the famous?

    So here's a thing.


    spamdangled wrote:40 hospital admissions in 3 years, a massive cocktail of drugs tyat actually just seem to lead to more hospital admissions, and half the dominant forum crowd accuse me of defrauding the nhs when they were found guilty of conspiracy, lying to the tribunal, faking evidence and discrimnation. They also accuse me of lying that my dad killed himself (despite it being publoc record and reported in a southampton newspaper), say I lie that I am diagnosed disabled (again, despite legal records), that I lie about being a victim of domestic violence (despite official records - and I was even interviewed by East Sussex bbc about it 3 months ago, albeit under a false name and with my face blurred as part of a bit theh did they did on same sex domestic violence).

    When the forum is dominated by homophobes, misanthropes, trolls, liars, cliques and the absolute worst of humanity (and I say that as someone who reads the Blizzard forums), and when EG not only tolerates them but actively defends them, going so far as to turn a blind eye to people who re-reg after being banned for homophobia, racism, anti-semitism etc, is it really any wonder that I have been mostly avoiding whst is probably the most tocox forum community in the gaming scene?
    Can anyone remember anyone accusing him of lying about any of that? I'm pretty sure the only thing he gets called out on is that time he pretended to have terminal heart cancer to get attention.

    Where did the insane fantasist post that? Or was that from one of his alternative personalities as apparently he has DID on top of everything else now?

    That actually still winds me up thinking about. The mentality of someone posting in a thread about people dealing with and losing loved ones from cancer with that horseshit was just abhorrent.

    Lying about people lying about you being a liar is quite the lieception.

    I could say that I was still vaguely following the logic here.

    But I'd be lying.

    To be fair, he has been accused of being a liar on multiple occasions.

    When he got an exclusive interview with Bobby Kotick, when he had heart cancer and multiple other instances of weird little white lies he dropped out there for attention.

    Ironically, the stuff he listed was never accused of being lies but people just wanted him to shut the fuck up and stop barfing every element of his personal life over a gaming forum.

    Forum dominated by the worst of humanity who constantly come together to help people when they genuinely need it.

    They just dont tolerate bullshitters.

    Yeah, he claimed to have interviewed him for some blog or something.

    To be fair, I'm no psychologist but his behaviour over the last decade suggests he has a genuine mental illness, so I try not to get involved in stuff like this because I do feel sorry for him.
