My son will be promoted to big brother in about 9 months
« on: June 04, 2017, 01:40:19 PM »
We are expecting a second little one in our house in 9 months! Almost every one wants this to be a girl. I do too.
Boys are cool, I have one son so far. He has two cousins around his age that get together, all boys.
I think my son & I will be confused on how to play with a little girl though. 'So barbie doesn't fly out the window huh?" :)

I will keep you posted down the road. I think it's the start of the third trimester that we can know the gender. That's 6 months or so away.

Congratulations!

My prayers are with you for a healthy baby and healthy mom. Here's hoping ya'll get your little girl!  :)
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

We know the gender and it's a...............boy.

Another boy. I suppose it won't be too bad. Both can play with the same toys and the other can have hand me downs.

So there's the update!

Awesome! I know it's not what you initially wanted, but another healthy child is a true blessing, regardless of gender.  ;)

Plus, you could always hone those mad 6DOF skillz with some quality 1v2 team anarchy time with your little material defenders!
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

Great news, and congratulations!

You thought you'd learned a lot with one?  Hang on, the ride is just beginning!

Thanks all!

Yep, two future cadets!

I know we were all thinking a girl, but nothing wrong with two boys. As long as they are happy and healthy, as you said, that is a true blessing indeed!
My son has had so many people comment on his big smile. I'm confident it can stay. I am 35, and I still have a great smile. I love making him laugh.


I'm sure two will be quite the handful. I hear it can be easier in some ways, and harder in other ways.

Congrats on the new son! I'm new to this site but not to Descent (first post). I've been playing it since it came out in 94/95. I've recently gotten my two oldest into Descent. I made them play D1 before they played D2 and they had to finish D2 before they played D3. They're not bad at it. Kids are fun but can be extremely taxing at times (especially at age 7...). They grow up fast so enjoy them while they are little.

I've never played online but would like to. Do you have a certain time each week/month that anyone regularly plays? Thanks

Welcome to Planet Descent! Sadly multiplayer is dead or nearly so... I don't even know if the trackers are still up.

I was big on playing Descent, even online (Descent 3 only).
I haven't been online in ages. LIke WillyP said, I don't know if the trackers are even around anymore. It's how I got online anyway after PXO (PXO right?), went under. It's been ages, can't remeber what went under.

Anyway, welcome to Planet Descent!
