A way to keep in contact more - New Voice/Text Chat Outlet
« on: November 23, 2015, 03:37:34 PM »
Hey there everyone, didn't know where to stick this so I am sticking this in the general discussion. Recently in the past few weeks I stumbled upon a new chat service know as Discord. It is a combination between TeamSpeak and Skype in the sense of it's functionality and has very good quality for voice as well as a myriad of options for text channels. An interesting thing about it is that you don't actually have to download the program, you can run it in a web browser. Here is the website for those who want to take a look. https://discordapp.com/

So I was thinking if we wanted to keep in better contact with each other and if a new Excite game comes out it will be a new platform to communicate on. If not that's ok, was just throwing out an idea.

I'm still hoping for a new, online capable EB game, BTC...

If they do, whatever it's on I'll get.  Just don't know how the 800-900ms ping time would work even just racing.  Probably not good.

So, how ya been?

I don't know, BTC, I got the Wii out of hibernation and tried a few races - not good.

Took 7-8 tries to get a 400 on School Mex.  :(

Never did get over 325 on School Can.

Couldn't hit 400 on School Fiji.

And the rest were even worse.   >:(

Won't be much "Jooming" like that.  :-*

I'd love to be able to race you guys again, though.  And chat...

That's what you always say before you Joom us. :P


Yeah, it would be cool to race and chat again.

I currently have C3, TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, and Mumble installed on my computer... but sure, let's add another 10-15 voice chat services to that list! :P

Honestly, I don't know what problems people have with some of these services, as I've never had any issues.  If you guys ever want to chat, let me know, and I can get you some info for one of these chats so we can talk.
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)

I've used them all, but have always liked C3 the best.  Simple, and just always worked well...
