#229410 Gaming Podcast

Posted by Gurthyy on March 02, 2017

That's really great advice, i think that's kinda the spot i'm in at the moment, personal friends haven't been interested and well i just kinda feel stuck as i feel a one person podcast wouldn't be too entertaining. 


I dont listen to as many podcasts as I used to, but I listened to quite a few football ones during the season that was just one person. The biggest advice I can give you as a novice listener is to just remember to have fun. Be the biggest version of yourself that you can be, and really let the listener feel your passion. The listener can tell if you really care about something, or if you're just saying it hoping it brings about more fans. Be true to how you feel and love, and you'll be solid.


PS this comes from a guy who has never attempted to do anything like this, so I could be 120% wrong. lolol. Just my 2 cents.

I remember the first day on this server. Excitement, anticipation. And then the grind began. G'bye ol' friend.

Hey Gurthy does the name match the drapes? ;)


If you stay around long enough, maybe you'll find out?? ;)

#226877 Should GSN Gaming rent a Battlefield One server?

Posted by Gurthyy on October 19, 2016

As someone who doesn't play BF often (read ever), I'm not sure that a limited server like that will really be worth it for us. One of the things that I feel GSN has always excelled at was running our servers better than everyone else, and have better admins. With everything going through EA and a severe lack of customization to put our server apart from the rest, I'm left to wonder if maybe we'd be better off taking over other peoples servers....


My additional idea would be wait and see what other communities put servers up. If we find that no one has a decent server, then we can look into it further. Not sure buying in right off the bat is the best idea though. :)

#226533 Happy Anniversary

Posted by Gurthyy on October 03, 2016

6 years - ain't that something. I've been around here for a little over 4 years now, and I am proud to say that I'm a member here. I have seen this community go through major shifts, mass exoduses, but through it all, we have remained strong. I've seen this community gather together to help a member in need (more than once, I was that member), and I've seen memeber share their love for not only video games, but for people.


I've wanted my 1000th post to be awesome. Something super cool. But today - my 1000th post will be in gratitude of GSN and everyone of you crazy people who have found GSN to be your home, even if only for a short while.


I still have a hard time explaining to people who dont' game what GSN is and what GSN means to me. A lot of people don't realize that you can have close, if not best, friends that you've never met in person. And I have to say - as someone who generally does not like people (as a whole), some of the best, most amazing people I've ever met were met here at GSN.


So big <3 to the people who have made this community everything that it is today. Thanks to the Founders and Cores for keeping our doors open and making the choices no one wants to have to make, all for the betterment of the community. Thank you to my fellow Advanced for always being there to take care of business. Thanks to the Basic members - without you, there is no GSN. You are our bread and butter. And thank you to all of the guests and friends that we've made along the way.


Here's to another 6 years. *raises glass*

#225626 AMA: Gurthyy (Kyle) - Part II

Posted by Gurthyy on August 23, 2016

Thanks everyone for the great questions!!!
- What is your dream vacation? What would you do where would you go? I'd love to go to Australia/New Zealand, as well as backpack through Europe. I really just want to see all the world has to offer.
- Nikon or Canon? Canon. All. Day.
- What is your favorite place/thing to take pictures of? I love taking HDR landscapes. HDR uses multiple different shots to get different levels of light and contrast - smash all of those shots together to get some crazy shots. It's useable in a less severe way, but I love doing a slight over-edit on it - I guess you could say it's my style. (https://www.flickr.c...yy/16348078980/)
- What is the best thing about working in IT? Having the opportunity every day to solve a new puzzle - a lot of what I do is the same day in and day out, so when I get weird issues that I've never seen before, I love actually being able to use my brain and have to think about a solution
- What is the worst? The users...sometimes they're just so slow...
- What is your biggest pet peeve? A general lack of interest in learning. We walk around with mini computers in our pockets, and the entirety of society's knowledge is searchable in moments. The people who refuse to try and learn and better themselves and do simple searches reallllllllllllly rubs me the wrong way.
-If you could have one meal for the rest of your life what would it be? And why? Tritip Steak, medium rare, with Mac & Cheese and fries from this place out here called Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill. Best steak I've had - ever.
-How many goals have you stolen from people in rocket league? Probably at least 400.
-If you switch places with anyone from gsn who and why: If I had to switch places with anyone in GSN, it'd honestly be any of the streamers we have. I've always been super interested in streaming, just haven't had the dedication or time to dive in head first.
-How many boobs have you touched other than your own? 7 or 8 sets. lol
-Have you ever pooped in anything other than a toilet or toilet like container? Can't say that I have - yet.
-When you were young, what was your dream job? I wanted to be a meteorologist, and that turned into wanting to be a Tornado Chaser. Twister was my favorite movie growing up, and I thought it would be so fuckin' cool.
-If you could learn any language other than English, which would you learn? Spanish. I'm stupid for not learning it in High School, and now that I live in Cali, it would REALLY come in handy
-How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? A woodchuck would chuck as much as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood
-If you could trade screen names with 1 person in GSN, who would you choose? I don't know that I would. Gurthyy has become a second name for me - even people IRL know me as
-If there was one gaming brand you could be endorsed by (and get a bunch of free stuff) what brand is it? I'm really not sure - probably a company that has more to offer than just one piece of hardware/software..someone like ASUS, AlienWare, something where I can maximize the free shit.
 -You have $10,000 and an entire candy store by yourself, whatcha buyin? Reese's Pieces, Nerd Ropes (assuming this is a proper candy store), few Swedish Fish, some Peanut Butter M&Ms (the only proper way) and a fuckton of Chocolate covered pretzels.
- Part 1 - What is your favorite game memory from your childhood? Watching my sister beat Donkey Kong Country on SNES when I was a little guy, and then I just remember her bawling her eyes out when she won, and then was killed during the credits.
- Part 2 -  What color is underrepresented in a lot of games? I haven't the slightest clue. I'm kinda slow when it comes to colors - the type of color blind I have makes blues/purples look similar, some yellows and greens look identical to me - I'm not a good color person. lol
- Part 3 - What is the newest game you have? Newest to me is Rim World. Newest in general? I plan on picking up Deus Ex Mankind  Divided soon - but other than that, Rocket Leauge is probably the newest game I own.
- Part 4 - How long have you been into Photography? I've had a love for photography since I was a Junior/Senior in high school. I was on Yearbook staff at my school, and we had the opportunity to go to a few journalism conferences where I took photography classes. From there, I upgraded to a DSLR and never looked back. At one point, I was running a digital magazine called Metro Scene Detroit, where we covered the music scene in Detroit through photo and video. I was the lead photographer, and it was an experience that I'll never be able to compare to anything.
 -Part 5 - How many drinks did the bartender pour, how many were drank, and what is your dream home? Poured: 9 || Drank: 1 confirmed || Dream home has a giant wraparound porch, and has a view of the water. I'd love a room for gaming, a room for music recording/production, and an in-home theatre.

Or round. Like the net.




Posted by Gurthyy on April 20, 2016

FINALLY! 6 Days!



I'm pleased to see that you can drive through the 'hoop' but the ball can't pass through. I was wondering how that would actually end up playing out.


Super duper pumped.....
