I'm not keen on RP'ing either. I'm either not active enough, or no-one else is. I guess I just want to write stories. I'd love to do that one.
On the topic of Ultros being in games... They've now revealed that he's going to be in FFXIII-2 as DLC. He looks a lot like he does in FFVI, but he has white tattoos for some reason. He seems to keep his personality though, so that looks like a great thing.
Ultros' only true appearances have been in FFVI and Chocobo Dungeon (he appeared in 3D as a boss who also had talking parts as well, I think - I've only seen it on Youtube once a couple of years ago). In his other appearances he's only been added as an afterthought or in a remake / re-release of an earlier game. I think they put him in FFXII too, but he was only a mark, and he was transformed into a flan / blob rather than an octopus.
I'd personally love an FFVI spinoff with Ultros... Or, even better, have a cross-dimensional game with Gilgamesh as the lead. He can be falling through the void into different worlds and can pick up a party on the way. He can rescue Ultros from his servitude in the Dragon Colosseum and they, along with Hippaul, could have a fantastic adventure.
If they don't make this game, we should. Alternatively, that would make a fantastic RP.
I don’t game much right now. Only the occasional bit of Uncharted 3. And that is only really for venting out my locked up desires which I do not act out either in real life or in my dreams (blowing people to smithereens and thrust-taunting their corpses ).
The forum will have changed a bit since you were last here, I'd think. I've not been super-duper active myself so there have been a lot of people I've drifted away from and am likely a forgotten entity by now with a lot of them. There are still lots of older members though, but people just change their names. You may remember more of them than you think. Generally speaking though, some of the old RPG folk are much less active these days. Or at least, if they are active, it must be at a time that I never see them.
