The Atlas Anniversary Topic

Postby Tiptup Jr. » February 14th, 2011, 12:38 am

So, I'm surprised no one's started this.

Anyway, this is the topic to discuss DKC Atlas's third birthday... I can honestly say I'm pretty proud to be one of the first members here. I remember reading about this place for the first time like it was yesterday. And sure, our forum may have started out as a DKU clone, but it quickly grew into its own thing, and despite some of the nonsense this past year ( effing Returns) this site remains a fantastic place for the faithful Donkey Kong fan to communicate with his peers. Here's to many more years; And thank you, Qyz.

Also: Donkey Kong 64 font at the top of the main page. I like. (EDIT: Maybe it's not from DK64.)

I think we need DKCR pages soon...

Well, to be on topic, this site isn't much different from what it was three years ago.

I disagree. In the three years since it's been around there's been the DKC2 and DKC3 pages added, and the hub page. Originally dkc-atlas.com would just take you to the DKC page, it's completely different now. Plus there's the DKCR section, which doesn't have a whole lot now but I'm sure that it will be expanded eventually. DKCR was exactly what the site needed I think.

I've only been here for a short while but I think that the DKC atlas has a great community and has just the right size for great people and no sight of those that troll

Yay, cake! Reminds me of that time I came with the idea of sending Retro studios cake (and ice cream) for reviving DKC. But it would turn bad halfway across the ocean.

Perhaps I should send them cake mix instead. That way, they can make their own cake. :P

I came up with a idea sending my own ideas for a new DKC to retro. But I think a cake is much more appriciated XD

Wha? So THAT's where your HD screenies came from! I want MOAR.

My poor old computer can't handle Dolphin Emulator in HD (though original GCN res works fine for Gamecube)... :(

:arrow: What the heck kind of processor is that, a Core i7 or some other uber-expensive gaming machine?

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it's an honour to have you as members of the community. :)

Things may seem slow around here at the moment, but I promise you, I am working on something big!

And Simion...
Spoiler!
With great power (AMD Phenom II X4 955 @3.20 GHz) comes great responsibility (providing an abundance of HD screenies to the masses!)

Expect a new batch very soon. 8-)
