What up, VGF?

Post by Dan Saf » Fri Jun 12, 2015 6:13 am

Greetings! I've been discussing games on the internet for over a decade now, and upon stumbling onto this site I thought... well, why not see what this community's all about? My name is Saf, and you might recognize me from the Donkey Kong Extended Universe fansite, dkvine . Ahh... hopefully the site's reputation hasn't proceeded me. We were definitely known for a lot of negativity back in the day, but with the return of Donkey Kong Country and the exciting news out of Rare and nu-Rare Playtonic, we've managed to reform ourselves into quite a decent little community. Anyway, obviously, my interests

Removed your link, self-promotion in introduction posts isn't permitted as such. Welcome to the forums, though. Anyway, obviously, your interests?

Hahah, I guess I got distracted! Sorry for breaking forum decorum, didn't mean to do so. But yeah, my interests lie mostly with Nintendo and Rare, but I try to keep abreast of the goings-on throughout the gaming sphere. Got a stack of 360 games I'm plowing through to catch up on my recent history, and despite being an old-timer suspicions of newfangled trends, I've started to check out some mobile titles. I know, get with the times, right? And as part of spreading my wings a bit more and trying new things, I thought... why not try a new forum? You guys seem pretty chill. Hope we can all have some great times in the future!

Mobile games tend to be very shallow or ports/clones with awful controls, but I suppose the market may some day produce something with noting. Then again, I'm ancient in the world of gaming so what do I know.

Hey Dan! Nice to see a new face here. Stick around and participate in whatever discussions you like! And maybe even some you don't like!

Hey, Dan. I've been a fan of Nintendo for all my life, and although I had Rare games growing up, I didn't grow to truly love them until earlier this year after playing Banjo-Kazooie.

If you want to partake in general discussion, check out the WoT thread sometime (it's in the Miscellaneous forum; we're up to 326 now). The idea is that you're supposed to get the top post of a page (every page has 20 posts) but it's an artifact mechanic and a formality at best at this point.

Generally not a big fan of mobile gaming (I don't have a smartphone-----------got a dumb phone, because I'm dumb). Must admit I quite like that Steven Universe 'Attack the Light!' game, though. It's really nice.

Not really a Nintendo guy. Not really a platform guy in general, to be honest. There exist developers that I will champion to my dying breath, though, and Rare is one of them (Koei, Nippon Ichi, Cave, SNK and LucasArts being some of the others).
