I believe this is now my 2nd or 3rd attempt to return as an active member, so I hope everyone's been doing well. Each time I think I've set my expectations too high and never consistently came back to join in conversations. It's kinda crazy to see that while these forums have certainly evolved over the years, so many things have remained the same (in regards to several mainstay members and moderators). Rambling aside, it feels kind of like coming home and revisiting my youth (now I just sound like I'm an old man, haha). If I remember right, my old username was smashbrother_64, but I couldn't say for sure if there was some kind of variation on that. Anyways for introduction's sake as far as a "get to know me" post, my interests include video game music, story-driven games such as Telltale's recent games or smaller indie games like To The Moon, Japanese RPGs both modern and classic, learning and speaking Japanese, and game design, among other things. Some of my recent favorite games have been Xenoblade Chronicles X, Undertale (yeah, I'm sure many of you have heard more than enough about that one, lol), and Metal Gear Solid 5. Looking forward to playing Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam and Final Fantasy Explorers next week. Of course, there are a lot of other topics that interest me, but I don't want to bog people down with too long an introduction [/too late]. TL;DR version: I am someone who used to visit here a lot as a kid, and have been looking for an outlet to have video game and other geeky conversations with. Pleasure to meet ya, or good to see you again for anyone who might have a vague recollection of seeing me here in the past.
