Out of the Blue

Argh -- I hate running so behind! Sorry about the late start. :(

So I'm glancing through the owners manual of our car. Does it scare you as much as me that under their advice on how to get the best possible gas mileage they suggest not driving with your foot resting on the brake pedal? Who are instructions like that for anyway?

What really ever happened with Billy Wilson?

Back in the day (what, 1997-2000?) Blue would mention Billy from VE all the time. He would credit him on news stories and other crazy stuff, it made me check out the VE site many times. But over the last few years Blue basically NEVER mentioned VE anymore. I never knew why....

hmph. ive been reading both sites for many years already, and it really pisses me off when i see the old soup kitchen being bought out by mcdonalds. for some reason, i liked VE3D more than blues, not because of the news that they post (ill be serious, andy is the worst news reporter ever imo), but because of the comments posted. blah, oh well. what a bunch of fucking sellouts. i think they are butt buddies with bungie and the desert combat team.

God dammit no one cares if you're from VE. Does this mean every single ex-VE user will come here and write their own "I'm new to Blue's" post. Let's just stick to arguing with eachother about the news topics.

Well crap... now I'm curious. I guess I've got to go over and check out VE.

-----------------------------------------
Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

Hi all.

I'm a VE nomad as well. I've been going there daily for damn near seven years and all that came to a grinding halt today. Blues was the site I would hit up immediately after VE and just got promoted to homepage status as of today...

What really ever happened with Billy Wilson?

The VE/IGN staff seem to think that it will blow over like the lat time VE changed it's design, i doubt it. VE has been a real favourite site but the way they just switch with zero warning. (yes we knew IGN bought them, and they would be moving to a new server, but nothing else).

I for one am happy to become a part of Blue's News, i've visited regularly, but never really commented before

As average joes I think Apache was the most recent voicebox with Ve3d. Who else would we have to yell at but him? But I hear, suppose the ire should be at Ve3d as a whole but he's the peruser/poster on the boards (and I'm sure he's lurking here too)

Arrggg, people, stop beefing on Apache. This is nothing to do with him, he never owned VE, just worked for it.

Ahhhh! VE3D geeks everywhere! Ahhhh!
Just kidding.
Btw, what happened to Fredster? I haven't seen a post from him in weeks.
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22

Yup...Blues is about to get innundated with subscribers. Apache over at Ve3d just fucked up BIG time by bending over for IGN. It just ain't pretty.

Always visted Blues and Ve3d equally but mainly Blues for the Out of the Blue section.

Beat me to it Trip.

In case you people aren't quite aware yet, VE3D is now part of IGN.

Hope ya'll don't mind a flood of refugees...
