Well, it’s been five long years since Grig Orig started tearing it up on the Internet. Occasionally, I have a brief flick back through the archives and relive the various moments that, since I don’t keep a diary, have almost become a commentary/reference point on what I was focussing on at the time. Or rather, what I was getting grigged off about in gaming. It’s a slow degeneration from the ‘not much hope’ of the early days, to the ‘that’s it. I’m done.’ of the modern era.
But what a ride!
I laughed! I cried! I cried again. I cried some more. And then I wondered what’s the point. But such is the way of life here at Grig Orig… and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Then of course there was the great Griggish blackout of ’12/’13, effectively sheering over a year off of our operation and putting a huge dent in the impressive feat of the aforementioned five years of service… but we won’t go into that.
And so for once, I’m not going to write a fifteen-hundred word strong article that no one will bother reading anyway. What I will leave you with on this momentous occasion however, is the following…
Huh. So that’s what happens when you try and make a video out of a blog.
So there ya blow. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my time at Grig Orig, it’s that I use too many commas and don’t quite, know where to, put them,. Oh, and ellipsis’s… serious… overuse.
But before I go, and coz I’m feeling merciful, there’s one last piece of housekeeping to deal with on this most epic of occasions (oh go on then)…
Hot griggedy gram! Five years huh? You know, as the age difference between me and some girl on a campsite, it doesn’t seem that much – but in game journalism years it’s an eternity. Or that’s certainly what it feels like reading back through it… Ashasha I joke of course – clearly I’m never going to read back through it… Top quality video look back there punkass – my favourite bit, just as in real life, is seeing “no comments”. Aaah memories… And I think… Yes, I think you’ve inspired a follow up article!
Darn, I see it’s been a busy day here at Grig! This is actually the second time I’ve replied to this, but my thumb slipped on my phone and I lost what I’d written resulting in me feeling excessively grigged off, disappointed that I’d wasted my time, and like my day was ruined. In a way it was reassuring to know that an average trip to Grig Orig has lost nothing in those 5 years.
My favourite was the pidgeon with the caption ‘some viewers may find this image offensive’ of something along those lines haha. Nice work on the montage dude. We’ve had some really good times over the years
It’s funny how tastes differ – that photo of the winged fiend was, funnily enough, my least favorite, ha ha!
I’m glad the Grig finally got his freedom. Though I heard that now he’s free his powers will start to wane – meaning he’ll struggle to defeat any other grigs if they return from the cave of wonders. Wait… Is that right?
I’m more concerned about why he has now, apparently, been inside a lamp when we’ve been banging on about him being locked up in GRiG Towers basement for the last three years. Nothing like a bit of Griggish-consistency. GRiG nerds far and wide are probably sifting through our posts as we speak trying to figure out what is canon and what was just pure buh.
Unless… there was more than one Grig the whole time… dum dum duuuuuuuummmmmm!
That one’ll keep ’em busy for years.
