RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Game Review #2: Project Eden

Alright here is another one, this time with an intro. So by all means read and give me feedback on what I can do to make it better, today's Game: Project Eden.


Hidden stuff:

Project Eden, a game developed by, the now defunct, Core Design, and published by Eidos Interactive,(which is now Square Enix Europe), and released in 2001 on the PC and Play Station 2 as an Action-Adventure game.

First the Story, the story is rather simple, humans no longer live on the earth's surface and live above them in giant metropolises. The Urban Protection Agency are like the police, and you take control of a task force, each having their own unique abilities. With real farming impractical and somewhat impossible, the Real Meat Company produces Synthetic Meat, which is designed to taste like the real thing, however when their factory messes up and the technicians sent to fix it gone missing, your squad is sent to figure out what happened, and along the way learn more about the characters, and uncover a mystery of sorts.

Next, the Game-play. The game-play is nice, and the fact that each UPA agent has their own ability means that you have to switch between them at times, although there are times when you question the switching, and the game is a little nice, although slow at times. The game also has two view modes, first person and third person, which you can switch between freely, however I prefer first person mode. When you first begin it starts out easy and the game slowly ramps it up until it becomes rather hard. The controls are a bit awkward at times, and you will most likely need to change the controls around a little, however that is a minor annoyance. The game itself is a few hours long, so it will give you some entertainment if you need some time to kill.

The graphics are what you would expect of a game released in 2001, although the opening cut-scene does look better than the rest of the game. However due to the game being released in 2001, the graphics haven't exactly aged all to well, but it can be over looked considering the date in which this was released. The soundtrack is okay, but not the best, and the voice acting is weird at times, for example when you issue the Follow me command with Carter, although it seems to be okay for the most part

The degree of re playability is little, although you certainly can replay to try and do better in some places or to try something different, the game, while allowing exploration, tends to push you in a certain direction most of the time and the reward for exploration is little.

In short the game is what you would expect of a game released in 2001, in terms of graphics, voice acting, and sound-track, and to a degree, game-play. However the game-play could be better and some of the challenges and abilities could be better changed to give it a better feel. I recommend this to people who like older games, who like Eidos games, who want to try something new, or to those looking to kill some time, but not so much for the serious gamer, although they could have some fun with this too. It's more of a casual game than something I would, personally, sit down and play to the end non-stop. If you need a new game and don't mind wasting a few bucks, along with having a few hours to kill, then go ahead and buy this however, otherwise I'd suggest saving your money. I give this game a 7 out of 10.

I know what unity is, I just don't know what is being asked.
