Topic: Off-topic / My trip to Chernobyl/Pripyat 2013

The whole “Did you see zombies?” and “omg did u get cancer?” thing is a bit irritating. I heard a decent amount of that zombies crap from some other American on the trip.

I’ll be taking Swedish Classes over here in California starting September. Any pointers from native Swedish speakers? I still don’t have the tongue “twist” down when saying Hej.

Thanks OT. Mellow vibes.

This is actually really cool, thank you for uploading these pictures! I’m rather fascinated by abandoned towns and what nots, storing pictures of abandoned cities, factories, etc on my laptop. I think these will go well with my collection, thank you again!

You’re welcome!

What an experience! That’s really cool, Jacob.

Yes it was. Although it was more of a tease than it was a tour. We went into most of the buildings and then left rather quickly. Quite a shame, actually, because I feel like I see Chernobyl & Pripyat in a different than most people do.. I’m hoping for a 3+ day tour sometime in the future when I have the money.


@Zach: No, I did not. Which thread are you referring to? Actually since I’m 17 we thought we would have to give the patrol men a “consideration” at the 30Km exclusion zone. Fortunately, he didn’t give a shit so we kept the money.

Overall, it was about $220 (fees and other things added in).

That’s really cool! Thanks for sharing! The picture with the children’s book is kinda creepy.

Thanks for wanting to see them! Yes, it was a bit eerie. The whole trip was, to be honest. Pripyat is one of the last if not the very last place in the world where a genuine Soviet city is virtually frozen in time.


Thanks for all the positive vibes everyone!

I’m glad you all (or at least most of you) enjoyed the pictures.

Hey everyone, just thought I’d let you know that I’m back from a 2 week Euro-Russian vacation (even though nobody knew that). I used to be active back in 2011 but I haven’t been very consistent in terms of coming to OT in the recent years. Anyway, here are some pictures if anyone’s interested. Cheers!

I’ve heard it was only around an hour and twenty minutes, is that true?

Let players decide? He’s just telling people “hey guys, we have a server if you wanna join, no worries”. There’s no need to be rude to somebody who’s just letting people know he has a server if anybody wants to join.

Topic: Kongregate / What happened to the chat?

Hello everyone, I haven’t posted in the Kongregate forum in probably a couple of years or so and haven’t been active on the site since around 2010/2011. I felt the need to come back on for a few minutes yesterday to look around and see what has changed. I noticed some drastic changes here and there but the one that caught my eye the fastest was the insane lack of people in each room and the name changes of the chat rooms as well. I could remember quite clearly the days where each chatroom had around 150 in each (and keep in mind that was the average)? All I saw yesterday was 50’s, 40’s, 30’s, and even as low as the 20’s..


So my two questions to you guys is,

a) What happened to the chatroom population numbers? Why so low? And when did this decrease in number begin to occur?

b) What’s the point of changing the names of the older chatrooms? I feel it adds confusion to the older members and I don’t see much of a point to it (this question is in no way directed as a hostile one, I’m really just curious).


Thank you for your time Kongregators. It was good to visit this place again and feel the nostalgia. Cheers everyone.

it depends on what kind of person you are.
if you are into rpgs then i would advise the tales serie or kingdom of amlalur if you preffer a little bit more action.
for shooter i would say cod 2 or battlefield 3.
althought battlefield3 is kinda laggy on the ps3 so its better to chose cod 2 for ps3.
and battlefield3 for the pc.
for strategy i would advice Disgaea 3 or 4 but you need to love anime since both games are full of it.
with the others genres i dont have much experience.

CoD 2 isn’t available on the PS3.


In terms of exclusives?

For platformers, I’d start out with the Jak & Daxter Collection, probably one of the best, if not the platformers of all-time. Then you could go for the Sly Cooper Franchise (HD Collection & Thieves in Time). LittleBigPlanet is good too. I’m not a big fan of Ratchet & Clank, but alot of people recommend it.

If you enjoy emotional & artsy games, I’d recommend the downloable titles Flower, The Unfinished Swan & Journey. They are all amazing (Journey won numerous GOTY awards!). I’d also recommend the outstanding title Heavy Rain.

If you enjoy hack ‘n’ slash games, I’d go for God of War (HD Collection, Origins Collection, GoW III, GoW: Ascension).

If you’re a racing fan I’ve heard that Gran Turismo is a dream. As well as LittleBigPlanet Karting. Modnation Racers was a decent racer, but the loading times per track are a bit ridiculous. Twisted Metal isn’t much of a racing game as it is a demolition derby, but still fun nonetheless.

If you like action games, I’d HIGHLY recommend the Uncharted Series (1, 2 ,3). Infamous (1,2, Festival of Blood) is a good open-world action franchise as well.

Shooter guy? Go for the Killzone series as well as the Resistance series. Metal Gear Solid franchise if you enjoy a view from 3rd-person. Maybe MAG if you want a MMOTPS.

Some other great exclusives that I didn’t write above include: PixelJunk series, MotorStorm series & Demon’s Souls.

Keep in mind this is just the exclusives I’m talking about. There are tons of other great games found on other systems, but PS3 has the best and biggest variety of exclusives, hands down.

Cheers!
