    What's the difference between this and the Shoutbox?

    The shoutbox is filled with puny prepubesent nerds, IRC is the underground chat where all the cool edgy adults hang out.

    Takes off? GBAtemp IRC predates the forums and has been around for over 15 years, it is literally the foundation of this entire community. There would be no GBAtemp.net if it wasn't for IRC and it has outlived all of your other little chat fads that have lived and died in its shadow.

    So yeah, open up a tab in your browser and take part or don't, its up to you.

    I use IRC pretty often so i'd rather not use the browser version and i'm sorry for not knowing about anything about this site before 2005 but then again IRC with the average age of this community is once again something that'll most likely never be used like it was before.

    I always forgot that there's an IRC. Cool. I guess I'll be on-and-off there from time to time.

    Well whenever i go there, says everyone is idle, look empty like a prison break. Also hope this isnt about gears of war 4 cause i seen him talking about that all week in shout box. :P

    Anyway i would try it when there people to talk to, but i never used a irc, it looks like more advance chat room than shoutbox. remind me of aol back in the day :unsure:

    I'm not a fan of IRC because the setup, commands, and whatnot are intimidating. While the web-based IRC clients have made things easier, it still seems daunting. It's an archaic platform for communication. I don't use the shoutbox, but I would sooner go to the shoutbox simply because I don't have to worry about IRC culture and functions.

    I'll just remain a forum scrub, I suppose.

    Pretty sure I've seen this exact post on the front page a few months back, yet the post date says it's brand new.

    Are there just that many people unaware there's IRC?

    But didn't the name come from the website since it used to host gba roms?

    EDIT: Also I disagree as the GBATemp Myspace page is totally RAD

    Should just get discord. Also, I never see anyone on the IRC chat. All idle.
