    This is a really great thing that Mike is doing, and guys like Kid Ice and Megas should apologize to him for calling him a phony.

    Can you really blame them for being skeptical? My guess is they're as happy as anyone to hear people are getting something back, as am I. It's a Rare and Good Thing.

    That's a cool thing to do Mike. Although I am a new time poster and a long time lurker, I've heard of your brother's exploits and it warms my heart to see that you're helping people out.

    A rare egg on the internet indeed.

    Um, I don't believe I ever called him a phony. IIRC, I simply explained why the people who were skeptical had cause to be, which they did. FWIW, I'm glad to hear that the guy is on the level.

    I apologize to Mike for *implying* that he could possibly be a phony. It was nothing personal.


    The thread never should have been stickied in the first place, as it implies a Digital Press seal of approval. I am unmoved in that opinion.

    I'm unsticking this, as it's been a while and there seems to be no real activity in the thread.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Necro-bump!

    I totally missed this thread, but I'm actually from Greenacres, I even met up with Psycho Penguin once from a craigslist post just to see to see how he was trying to screw me over. (His "excellent" condition PSX games turned out to be shitty loose disc-doctored discs) Today I was googling him to warn a local facebook group about avoiding Steve in the event he signed up. That's when I discovered his obituary and realized he is in fact quite dead.

    Don't know if the offer would still stand 4 years later, but if you legitimately want to be compensated for whatever he stole you may want to try tracking down his brother. Can't hurt, in any event he's not Steve the Zombie. I don't think. :P

    Edit: Read through the whole thread and realized this had been longed confirmed. Yes I'm lazy. Still surprised.

    Yeah, we had a topic before this one talking about his death, then his brother popped in with this one.

    I haven't really spoken to a majority of the GFAQs contributor community in a few years, but there were people close to Psycho Penguin among them. Might be able to find someone to get you in contact if needed (I'm thinking threetimes, but I haven't talked to her in years).

    It's hard to believe this was like 4 years ago.

    More telling is how many user who posted in this topic four years ago who aren't posting here any more.

    Good point, JSoup. You should make a topic about that.

    I would, but it would just be locked for being 'mean' or something.
