Soldier Chatzisavvas salutes you — off for 9 months


Hello dear readers! In just a few months, from July up until now, I’ve worked much for Games Thirst, and came to love its small but interesting community. Everyone bashing Nick, Narwall being totally random, Mezzo being the voice of calm, Grim being the news-discoverer, and everyone else having their roles too. And of course, big thanks to mister Gilbert for the chance to work with what I love! Now, it’s time for Mr News-and-Reviews to sign out for a few months, and heed the call of duty (awful pun).

On Monday, I’ll start serving my country as a proud Marine or Royal Guard of the Hellenic Military. This is a moment I’ve long waited for, and it’s an honor for me to get the chance to serve under such proud units. Hopefully, if I don’t get any jail time, I’ll be with you again in exactly 9 months. But in the meantime, I hope I’ll get to post now and then, on my days off — but don’t really expect these posts. The military allows for 15 days off in total, not counting honorary days off, but to get these last ones, you’ll have to perform significantly important tasks (hopefully, I will).

I grieve for all the games I’ll have here, factory sealed, while I’ll be serving all over Greece and not get a chance to touch them until months later. At any rate, though, I’d pick this situation over not having the chance to join the army at all but get to play my games.

Keeping this short, I’d like to wave you all goodbye for a short while, and hoping to find Games Thirst be even bigger when I return. Thanks for all the love, and the hate, people. See you soon, and stay classy!

    I hope you you become a better man after serving in the Military for a while mate, don’t worry about the games, they will be always waiting for you. Man 9 months is really long, just don’t forget to post some things when you have the time mate. Oh yeah one more thing mate, kick some ass during your service.

    Thanks dude! My dad served for 22 months in the Marines, so we consider 9 months a joke :P Of course I will, to not lose touch with the community!

    PS: I’m waiting for the moment I get to shoot that G3A3 ;)

    Epic Header Image, man. On topic, I miss you already! I know you got to serve your country and I’m proud of that! Mixed emotions from me because I’m happy for you, but sad because we’ll miss you! although it’s just for a while. I pray much blessings come your way, and lots of success, too!

    By the time you come back mate, GT is going to be much better and you are going to be back in business. Just don’t do anything rash over there mate.

    Thanks both of you guys, we talked earlier too :)

    And thanks for taking that risk Afro! Christmas is my nameday (I don’t know if there’s actually namedays in any other country, most people are unaware of this :P ), so both would do, even though I ain’t a believer. Weird, isn’t it? Anyway, thank you again, and we’ll meet again soon! :)
