Discussion in 'Civ4 - Caveman 2 Cosmos' started by strategyonly, Jan 16, 2012.
I'm a lot younger, I don't turn 60 until late this year.
I knew you were 'an older gentleman', Joseph, but I didn't know everyone else was ancient!
Im lowering age of the C2C team (37 in this year).
I just turned 32 this December.
I think its cool that video games like Civ4 can be for not just kids and teens but for adults and elders ...
40 this year myself. And its true... this is a bit more refined than most games so would have more appeal to an older crowd, which makes it rare really since most video games are targeted at teen-young adult.
All I can say is I remember watching the "Cisco Kid" TV series in the late 50's in the UK.
I turned 25 last september... Now I'm feeling young
I'm amazed how the internet can connect people at all ages, nationalities and jobs just because we all love one game
Funny you should mention that, I was called that name and a buddy of mine was called Poncho, nice!! lol
Did you also get Lash L'aroue (sp?), Hopalong Cassidy, Rin Tin Tin, or Annie Oakley? Those Westerns and Superman, I never missed a show.
Heey Paancho!, Heey Ciisco!
Hopalong Cassidy and Rin Tin Tin yes. I don't remember the other two.
I don't think we had TV until we moved to Australia in the early 60's. I remember the Cisco Kid and Rin Tin Tin from then.
Lash Laroue only lasted 1 season maybe 2. He used a whip like Zorro.
Annie Oakley was a young girl/woman that was a crack shot with a rifle. Iirc, I think Andy Devine co-starred. Man that was sooo long ago!
Wow, Andy Devine, he was famous for being FAT but best known for his laugh, nice man.
While we reminisce: also in the 50's. The Lone Ranger, with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels (Tonto).
Maybe we should stop this. We do not want to scare the youngsters away.
"Hi-Yo, Silver! Away!" "Kemo sabe".
Youngsters need to know their History!
Old joke about Lone Ranger and Tonto:
Lone Ranger,"Tonto I need you to go into town..." Tonto, "Kemo sabe!? No! Every time I go to town I get beat up!"
Whenever I can, I listen to old time radio dramas. However I think they are even older than you elders.
I prefer more of the science fiction ones like Dimension X or X Minus 1.
The Golden Age of Science Fiction was the 1930's thru the 1950's or so I was told and What I read about it.
I do remember listening to the radio in the evenings to the different shows/dramas when I was very young and would spend time during the summer at my grandparents house. No TV out in the country where they lived back in Missouri. I don't recall either of those 2 Shows by name, but then again my grand father and uncles were more into Dick Tracy, The Lone Ranger, Superman, and St.Louis Cardinals Baseball. And I only got to listen from about 6:30pm to 8pm then it was off to bed for me!
This was when I was about 3-6 years of age and Grandpa and grandma had only had electricity hooked up to their house right after I was born in '52. The buying of the Radio was a Big deal!
Our 1st TV was when we moved to St.Louis the fall before I turned 5. That's when I got to actually "watch" the Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy, Superman, and some of the others mentioned here. Then came the 3 Stooges.... on KPLR TV 11 and Captain Showboat and Friends, that's when I turned 6. And we had moved 50 miles SW of St.Louis to the little town I grew up in for my School years.
Well it would seem I've waxed pretty nostalgic here havn't I!
IS this a help wanted thread or a museum!! Damn now I know why Dancing Hoskuld likes the prehistoric animals so much, he grew up with them!
Here are some voice overs still needed if someone would give it a try, thx/
I am not sure where to post this where C2C people would see it. I don't to step over my bounds but I know that those interested in C2C would be interested in this.
To get to the point is I am working on a mod for the game Project Zomboid. Which is a sandbox Zombie Survival game.
Note I still will work on C2C stuff too just not as much as I use to. Anyone who has helped mod C2C in the past would be great. The code itself is not too hard, I just need some more help working on it and I know the C2C community is an awesome group.
If interested please PM me.
