Limited to only 12?!?!  AHHHH!!  I might have to miss out,  :'( I have to wait and see what canadapost is doing, although I'm sure the strike will be over soon enough when the gov't gets involved, but you may already have 12 by then....


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 16, 2011 03:53:00 PM
Yeah, it's hard to organize a swap by yourself for much over 10 people, that's why it's 12.

Hopefully that dang Canada post will be off strike soon.

Oh no, I just joined another swap and since I am really busy at the moment I don't think I can join this one... :( Oh well, I hope there will be other video game swaps soon.

OMG!  This sounds like so much fun!  I so want to do this!  I was telling my hubby I wanted to do a nerdy one so he could share in the excitement with me!  I will have to decide quick!

I caved and sent in my questionnaire.  ^_^

Post by: amigurl55 on June 17, 2011 04:55:28 PM
OK, my people.  First of all, welcome to the swap!  Second of all, I'm having some trouble getting the "in progress" to show up in some profiles.  I tried again, so if you don't have an "in progress" by the end of tomorrow let me know and I'll open a help desk ticket.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: average_fan on June 19, 2011 04:55:41 AM
Whooooh I signed up :)
Hope there's anyone not minding to send to Germany  ???

K, I couldn't resist anymore and I sent in my questionnaire.  Besides, the strike has to be over by July 26 right????? :-\


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 19, 2011 08:28:05 AM
Only one open spot left!

I'm having trouble with a couple of swappers where the "in progress" isn't showing up in their profile.  I opened a help desk ticket, so if you don't have an "in progress" let me know asap and I'll add your name to the list.

I don't know how to count!  2 open spots left.  Duh.  ::)


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: BoomerBile on June 19, 2011 06:04:21 PM
Yay! I made it.  :D


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 19, 2011 10:19:03 PM
Seeing as how there is only one spot left, I've started tenatively partnering. 

Here's something to keep in mind when you get your partner:
I focused on allergies/allergens first.
Whether or not you want to ship out of the country was second.
Then I tried to partner based on similar liked games.

However!  Some of you have similar interests but either had allergies or allergens that would clash with your would-be partner and some of you didn't want to ship out of the country (which is fine, I don't blame you).  So if you and your partner like completely different games, that's why.  But I'm trying my best to make sure this is a fun swap!

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (sign-ups until 6/26, send-outs 7/26)
Post by: Rousseline on June 20, 2011 07:21:55 AM
Still one spot left? I want it! Like mama24boyz, I can't resist and the strike will be over soon, I'm sure of it! :P

Filling my questionnaire right away!!


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 20, 2011 09:26:00 AM
OK, we have 12 people!  I'm going to start partnering.  You should have your assignments by the end of today.

As always, please make sure you have an "in progress" in your profile, and please let me know if you don't.


Reminder: one of my personal swap rules is that each swapper post in the thread at least once a week so we know you're alive and crafting.  Lack of communication is a big pet peeve for me!  So please post once a week and keep in touch with me and your partner if you need anything.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: thingsivemade on June 20, 2011 09:31:45 AM
Woohoo! :)


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 20, 2011 10:03:00 AM
Partners are out.  If you did not receive a PM with your partner, please let me know!

Annnnnnnd....... craft!

Yaaay partners  ;D
And I already have some ideas! Now to plotting *rubs hands together*


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: jexxican on June 20, 2011 01:51:56 PM
I love early partners. I bet if this had waited until the 26th to end then this would have been a rather large group. That's OK, intimate swaps are more fun sometimes.
Hooray AssBro!


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: Rousseline on June 20, 2011 04:00:57 PM
Yay, I made it into this swap (barely!)

Time to start thinking about what to craft... I wish I had a beard so I could stroke it while I'm thinking... (but I'm not sure my boyfriend would like to live with a bearded lady...)

You can always make yourself a beard, like with yarn, crocheted or otherwise, or like felt or something. Ooh, if I were your partner I would so make you one, and make up a video game for it to fit into.

Post by: BunnieBard on June 21, 2011 08:13:52 PM
Ooohoh dear. My partner game a list of seven favorite games... and I have played NONE of them!  Haha!  I've heard of all of them, of course, and watched people play a few, but... this should be interesting. :D

So Boomer! Thanks for all the video links, they're really helpful. AND HILARIOUS. Everyone needs to watch this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=treORTk8tQ0&NR=1

AND THEN THIS ONE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMb9vnbuR_Q&feature=related

Oooh man, Sheegor is voiced by Bubbles from Powerpuff Girls! Too funny.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 21, 2011 09:36:34 PM
Yeah, sorry about that.  Like I said, I went by allergies/allergens, whether or not you want to send out of country, then what games you had in common.  That's why some of the partnerings seem kind of random.

But maybe you'll find some new favorite games that way!


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: BoomerBile on June 21, 2011 10:37:27 PM
You're welcome. Glad you are enjoying the vids.  :)
Psychonauts is definitely one of my top 3 games. (Have signed posters, custom art from the art director, goggles, tshirts, etc.) Really awesome and unique game.
The developer, DoubleFine, makes fun titles. Brutal Legend is also under that team.
If you need any more info on the games posted let me know. Sorry, if a bit of them are bloody.

Ami don't worry about the pairing. Something new is always fun to explore and look into.

Mama24boyz certainly enjoys the Nintendo life, whilst I've usually been a Sega/Playstation girl but this just means that I'll just have spend time "researching" some of these games on my friend's NES :D
 I'm so grateful that I have fun stuff to distract me right now!

"That's right baby, Daddy's here..." I was not expecting that voice out of that turtle! AHAHAHAHA! I've never even heard of that game! Luckily, my partner's son matches up OK with my husband, so I have a rough idea of what to make. Trouble is, how to keep it a secret from my husband?

"That's right baby, Daddy's here..." I was not expecting that voice out of that turtle! AHAHAHAHA!

Yeah, that cracked me up, too!

My partner and I have some games in common.  My husband went and looked up one of the games that we didn't know that was on her list and told me that I would like it, too.  Looks like we are finding new games to like this way!  My partner is going to make something for my hubby.  He will be so happy!

Post by: amigurl55 on June 22, 2011 10:54:27 AM
Well I'm glad you guys are OK with the partnering. 

I'm a Nintendo girl at heart, but I enjoy playstation as well.  I've never had a desire to have an XBox.  Just one of those things I'm not really interested in.  It's fun how everyone has their preferences.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: mama24boyz on June 22, 2011 12:58:15 PM
Ya, I'm gonna have to do some research on my partners games.  I've never played a playstation at all, another nintendo girl here.  My oldest has the xbox, but I've never really played that either.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: PureDeadBrill on June 22, 2011 01:13:55 PM
My son is all about the Xbox - he is not interested in a Playstation, just one or two games he likes, but gets to play them at a friends. I have a Wii for myself, haven't used it much lately.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)

Post by: jillybeans on June 23, 2011 03:23:18 PM
Gah!  Too many ideas!
Also agreed.  I'm having a hard time limiting myself.  Though, its always a continuing struggle with crafting.

I think I might have all the supplies I need to at least start one of the projects that I want to do for my swappy partner.  And its something that I can do on my 8 hr car ride to my vacation and my 8 hr car ride back and during any vacation doldrums.  I will have my lapytop with me so I can still communicate.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 23, 2011 10:19:03 PM
My partner and I decided to do 6 points.  I have the large and a small started, but I don't know what else to make.  I have some good ideas, but sometimes my ideas look better in my head then when I make them and that's what is holding me back.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: BoomerBile on June 24, 2011 05:49:33 AM
Getting really geared up and bought a few supplies. Still need to do a bit more stalking ^_^
Also, Valve released Meet the Medic today since Team Fortress 2 (one of my favorite games) is now free to play.
So worth the long wait for this vid. It is hilarious :D

Ok folks, just letting you know that I'll be offline for a couple of days as I have a dreaded date with the dentist tomorrow and hopefully I'll be too doped up to notice any pain for a few days. (I apologise in advance for gibberish that I may post.)
 
 Luckily I managed to get some crafting done in between gathering enormous amounts of books, comics and movies! :D


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)

Oooh, feel for you - I'm a dental assistant.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 26, 2011 09:10:56 AM
I'm going through some med withdrawls right now, so I may not be around much either.  If you need anything at all, please PM me and I'll get back to you asap.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: Rousseline on June 26, 2011 05:22:48 PM
I hope everybody's all right with the dentist and med pain and everything!

I'm thinking about stuff to do, but nothing concrete yet... I can't wait until school's over on Thursday so I can have more time for that. Having a summer semester at university sucks, I feel like I'm in high school again!


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: jillybeans on June 26, 2011 06:44:36 PM
My first item (prolly a large) is coming along!  Its actually turning out like I hoped, as well.  YAY YAY!  I don't have all the things I need to finish it yet, but the hardest parts are done.  I got some of it done on our 8 hr car ride over to our vacation and then some more during our down time.  Right now its sitting around enjoying the ocean and awaiting completion.

Ahhh, pressure, lol! ;)

Haven't started crafting, but I have a definite idea that I wanna start today. Just have to drop by the store to buy something... And I have many other ideas that I'm trying to decide how best to do them...

Can't wait to be done with school to have more crafting time!!!  :D

How's that dang Canadian postal strike?

Due to med withdrawls I had to take a short leave of absense from work.  So I've pretty much been crafting and sleeping.  I finished a large and a small, and they turned out so cool! 


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: jexxican on June 29, 2011 08:18:45 AM
How's that dang Canadian postal strike?

It ended 2 days ago and officially started being a Postal Service again yesterday! Yay! I can send to may partner when I get done (started) after all without being late! Apparently Canada takes this crap seriously. I bet in the US it would have taken MUCH longer.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: amigurl55 on June 29, 2011 10:16:00 AM
Yeah, it would be pretty crappy if that happened here.  Which is why I personally think the post office should be part of the government, not on it's own.

Glad that strike is over!  Now we don't have to worry about it.

Post by: average_fan on June 29, 2011 12:02:30 PM
Checking in :)
I only finished one small so far, but I started on a large one which I need to finish..
As we agreed to 6 points, I still have some stuff to do, but I don't have all the supplies which can only mean one thing: craft shopping weee!!  ;D

Ditto!  I'm heading to JoAnn's after work today.  I only need like one more thing for the item I am currently working on and then I'm picking up stuff for the rest of what I want to make you.  YAY YAY!  I'm excited for craft weekend!  I wonder if I can get it all done this weekend and can send it out next week.  That would be awesome!

Yep, I'm doing a lot better now, thanks! :)

 I managed to get a good bit of crafting done this week, so I'm happy about that. Although, my projects have a way with morphing into something different than I originally planned!

Done!  Everything is all packed up and ready to be mailed.  Just have to wait until I get paid.

Don't feel bad... I've been home all week doing nothing but crafting, sleeping, and, of course, playing video games.  Plus I wanted to send a little early since the goodies have to go all the way to Germany.

I started my first item, last week was hectic with school. Now, I'm starting a calm summer with only three days a week of work. I'll have time to craft way more!

I am sooo close to finishing my big item!  I just need one more thing and then I feel it will be completed.  I finished another item this weekend, and I think they turned out pretty cute.  ^_^  I'm debating on my last item and hopefully will have it all ready to send out next week.  My 4th of July weekend got a little too crazy, though I did get some done.

I had some cool plans, but the german craft shops failed me :(
Three ideas are not do-able because I can't get the items I wanted.. blergh.

Luckily my mind is wide and I already had some other ideas - huzzah!
And those are doable I know for sure - to the craft shoppe!  ;D

It's so frustrating when you can't find what you need!  I wanted to make a Desire Demon from Dragon Age (for my own personal use), but no one sells the bead caps I wanted to use for her pasties.  Grrr.

Last night I finally finished my swap partner's large item and I got did one small last weekend.  Now I'm debating what I want to do for my last.


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)
Post by: Rousseline on July 07, 2011 04:37:02 PM
Done with a small (medium on time, but that's juste because I'm slow :P)

I have a really nice idea for a medium, but I don't know if I'll be able to do it, it's a little bit complicated... but I'll have to try to know!

And I have another medium that I have to conceptualize properly and do... Lots of crafting next week!


Title: Re: Video Game Swap (send-outs 7/26)

Graaaagh~

I had an epic idea, but Walmart now only stocks one of the two colors I need... and I can't find the other anywhere else... SIGH.  :-\ Back to the drawing board!

Post by: jillybeans on July 09, 2011 10:02:17 PM
DONE!  I finished the last item today, and now I feel complete.  I will be mailing out on Monday.  YAY YAY!

As someone who hates shopping at walmart and is now forced to work for them: Walmart's craft selection sucks butt.  It used to be a whole lot better, but now it's not.  Stupid walmart.

1 more item to go  :)
Hope my partner is having fun crafting.
I'm having a blast. Her games have kicked in some good nostalgic moments.
Also, I played Megaman X2 and some LoZ again for added inspiration.

Hooray~!  ;D I love X1, 2, and 3. I would say I love 4-8 too, but I'm absolutely terrible at them for some reason.

I've been having fun doing research, too. A week or two ago I met up with some friends, and the guys who all brought their computers made everyone play Team Fortress 2. I've watched a lot of TF2 (one of these guys likes to make maps-- I helped him perfect this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKIycTkZwXA WHICH WAS SUCH A HEADACHE AAAGH), but I've never played it before!

...and it turns out I'm horrible at it. I can't aim to save my life, haha.  ::)

I was playing Fallout: New Vegas, but my bf said, "I want to go through Fallout 3 again, but I've already played it a bunch of times.  You should play so I can watch you."  His entire argument was "Liam Neeson is your dad!"  So I played it just to humor him, and it's a pretty good game.  I think I like both of them equally, but for different reasons.

And since I don't have a PS3 where I'm living, I'm finishing up Kingdom Hearts 2 while not visiting my bf.  They don't make games like that anymore.  *sigh*

My swap partner's package is on its way to her!  Safe and swift journey, package!!!  I had a hard time parting with her large item (we decided to do a 5 pt swap).  I ended up loving it so much, even though I'm not familiar w/ the subject of it.  I hope she loves it, too!

Worked on a medium yesterday for a couple of hours and realised after being done that I'll have to redo a big part of it, it sucks!  :(

Oh well, it happens... At least I know what to do now to do it properly!

I've been crafting my butt off in between trying to do a million other things, it's coming along well even though I have the "oh god, will my partner like this or should I start over?!" jitters :D
 I'm hoping to send sometime next week.

I just checked on where estar23's package was and its actually in her town!  I think she will be getting it today!  Wow, that was quick!  I dropped it off at the post office at lunch on Monday!  Craziness!  It traveled across the country so fast!  Super excited for her to get it!

OK, we haven't heard from some of you lately.  I don't want to list you here because that would be mean.  Please remember to post in this thread at least once a week so we know that you're doing OK.  Thanks!

I might be one of those people, I tend to be quiet  :D  But I hope to send this week!  I ended up making something not even on my partners list, but I found it somewhere else and I think she'll like it!

I FINALLY got inspired, and am now in the middle of what I think will be a large? I was hoping that not knowing my partner's games would allow me to FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE craft something and not be sad to give it away... but so far it looks like this is still gonna be dang hard.  :-\

I also have a small planned, if I can find the materials for it. I was at the craft store yesterday with my brother (a first!) and when I couldn't find exactly what I wanted asked, "Would it be weird to have [quote from game] on [item]?". His reponse was "YES because [obvious innuendo]". Thank goodness he pointed it out, it would've been so embarassing~ I'll have to fill in the blanks for y'all when I'm done... :D

I'm almost done with the most complicated item for the swap, thank god! And it turned out great!  :D

2 other items are done.

Still working on my extra.

Have to make sure I have what I need for the last one (a small, yay!) and craft it.

Good thing I'm off on Friday, lol!  ;D

Well at least you aren't awful like me and sent it to the wrong swap partner.  I'm the dumb head.  I'm hoping that I can get it resent, once I get it back, before the deadline.  *crosses fingers*  Second times a charm, right?

 Oh noes! Truthfully though, if I had more than one swap going on, I probably would have done the same thing! In fact, if I hadn't searched for my hearing aids, who knows when I would have found that item!
 Hopefully you'll get the swap back soon so you can send it off again :)

Oh heeey, you wouldn't have taken a picture of the Triforce mug? Because I dropped/killed my camera mid-photoshoot.  :( It fell all of three feet onto carpet, and now the lens barrel is stuck open... only 7 months old, I will be ticked if the warranty doesn't cover it...
