How are you all doing?

Post by Membou » Tue Jan 19, 2016 12:12 am

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.

Ahoy! Welcome back! Again!
To answer your question, I'm doing okay. :)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I'm sure I still have the marshmallows from previous vis--... those probably are stale. Thanks for the new batch, HotD! You must be in another region to be playing Paper Jam already... [/jealous] Glad to hear it, though! Thanks again everyone for the welcome messages!

Edit: I could be missing something, but how would you go about changing your avatar image? Is it a premium feature or anything like that? I haven't been able to find any information in my profile page.

You need more posts. There's also a time restriction, but your account is old enough that it's not an issue.

I see, thanks! If only there were a grayed out option that mentioned post requirement, haha.

You are supposed to consume them in a timely manner. :p You're welcome to marshmallows any time. ;)

Yes, I live in the future in the southern hemisphere... it's currently raining and awesome here. ;) Unfortunately, summer is angry and likely to be back soon... oh well, I intend to dance and sing in the rain whilst we have it!!

See PM. :D

Got it, and just so everyone knows, got the old account back up (thanks to HotD), and got the name change to avoid confusion. See you all around the forums!
