    I fell asleep at the end of star citizen, woke up to see Striker’s questions in the chat: “hello? anyone there?” Oops. Sorry :p

    I had a pretty wonderful time with this stream. It’s a combination between a surprise comeback of HPAW, and you really came back swinging, but also just how nice it was to interact with everyone since there were only a few people talking in the chat. But, most especially, I think– aside from the political climate in America where we’re on the verge of electing a second Hitler and the apathy and fear is real here–

    but just once you leave college, society kind of doesn’t care where you end up anymore. So life has been very.. jaded for quite a while. And I never sustained any kind of social network and still live in a backwards kind of city. It was really great to feel like I was there just hanging out. Especially now.

    It really reminded me also of what hpaw meant to me. Once hope and direction kind of fades from life when you’re not sure what to do next, you start to look at everything in a diminished light. But, I’m not one to ever give up on my dreams. Only in some ways have I let things get that way, but, I think I feel overall younger and better at almost 25 than I did at 15. I also feel like I’ve lived and died a 1000 times in spite of that.

    Yet, the times have been pretty freaking grey. I was talking to Striker in the chat and it sounds like you guys still have the hpaw dream and would if you could go with it again, if you could.

    Well, quite honestly, when I talked to mempf in skype a few weeks ago when I dropped a message about how I was leading a movement in America to swing the election results, I gathered 7000 people in about the first week, but then discovered that it was more than just media influencing people’s decisions to support Clinton or Trump. There’s a long-standing strategy by our government known as the southern strategy which manufactures bases of sexism, racism, xenophobia, and basically splits people up into their own ideological factions against each other. Over a time, this becomes irreversible. So it is with great displeasure to say that Trump and Clinton are literal representations of the actual majority of the American people.

    Quite honestly, I think it’s not a surprise that when your country is actually founded on “I want to self-actualize, to hell with everything else”, namely “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, instead of something like “peace, order, and good government”, especially when we stole and abused (and still abuse) the original owners of the country, along with stealing and abusing everything else that led to us being the most powerful and wealthy country in the history of the world, I think it comes to no surprise that we would eventually become where we are today.

    I don’t know if people outside America know this but we officially are not a democracy anymore. Princeton did a study a while ago deducing we are an oligarchy. Bernie Sanders actually was supposed to win if the votes weren’t literally stolen. And the wikileaks and so on proved our system was and is completely rigged to the core.

    Trump is actually likely to be the next President. He’s tied with Clinton, and a whole batch of wikileaks came out on Clinton that is very destructive to her. But hopefully the other countries will sanction us from allowing the next monstrocity from accomplishing anything.

    So we are a rogue nation with the most powerful capabilities at hand. How convenient. And I’m seriously considering moving north to Canada.

    But with regards to hpaw, I always wanted to give back, and in parallel to when I was leading the movement “Jill Stein Double Or Nothing”, I was setting up my youtube persona/career. And I put that aside to try to see if there was anything I could do to prevent what is now going to happen anyway.

    I am dead set on pursuing it, and I have high expectations. If there is anything I can do for the most special podcast to me, that is to do something to use my subscriber base to share it. Maybe something along the lines of how HFC featured you, or doing announcements on social media when you guys would live stream again and bring my base over to the chat.

    I really wish everyone the best at hpaw regardless of how often you guys do what you do. The content is so well-meant that the archived database is timeless. As opposed to the new youtubers who are “watch now, move on to the next.” Literally this year I rewatched the Oblivion and Shivering Isles marathons.

    Speaking of marathons, I was probably the only one who was a fan of the hpaw + hfc playthrough of Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland and I forgot to download the videos. Recently, I saw that the videos were removed from HFC’s website. If there is any chance of retrieving the archive to that, I would be whole again. There is the intro to it still on HFC’s main channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nW428tc4tpc), but the full thing is missing (https://www.twitch.tv/hellfirecomms/c/2848387).

    Happy 10 year anniversary of HPAW by the way.

    See you around,

    Sincerely,

    I’m amazed its been…ten years.

    I remember finding HPAW a couple years after you started posting to YouTube. At the time, and still today, I believe that what you guys do is something very special. Although today you can find millions of let’s play videos on YouTube, most lack what I’ve always appreciated about HPAW. The atmosphere.

    The tone of the episodes and marathons always felt genuine. Like what was recorded would have happened whether it was recorded or not. It was clear to me from the start that you really enjoy what you do, especially after seeing the documentary and the amount of work put in for just one episode. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to catch many of the Twitch streams, but I always try and watch them after they’re uploaded.

    I didn’t mean to make a wall of text for my first comment so I’ll wrap it up. I’m sure you’re all very busy outside of what you do here and I really appreciate that you’ve kept it going this long. I’m looking forward to whatever you do next and hope to see another great year for HPAW.

    Also, thanks Sage. you helped me decide to make an account after about eight years of watching silently.
