Introduce Yourself!

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 80.1K users

Just about every forum I've seen has had an introduction thread, and with the new licenses bringing in so many new faces, I feel ours should be no exception. This thread is for new members to introduce themselves and say hello. If you guys like, it can also be for old members to introduce themselves to the new members.

And yes, I'm aware that we already had this thread two months ago, but after the way that one went, I felt a blank slate was in order.

Well! Guess I'll get the ball rolling!

Greetings! I'm GuruGuru214, though most call me Guru. I've been here for around a year and a half, and at the moment I believe I have the 5th highest post count among active posters (behind Avistew, Rather Dashing, Jake, and Irishmile). This means that I talk a lot but not necessarily that I have a lot to say. :D Needless to say, I could very well be the mod who spends the most time on here.

I also started the longest running thread on the forums back before my modship, which is something that fills me with both pride and shame, depending on what's going on in there at any given time.

I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember and own every Nintendo console there is.

See? I also own the full Telltale library, with the exception of Texas Hold'em. Once a year, you'll find me running the Great Monkey Island Race and the Great Sam & Max Race, a speed run competition through every game in each series and a whole lot of fun. Other times, you might find me on other crazy exploits, like running the entire Kingdom Hearts series in chronological order, or cataloging my game collection and then attempting to beat all the games I never finished.

I like to think I'm easy to get along with, as long as you're a reasonable person. Don't look for trouble and we should get along just fine.

Welcome to Telltale! Enjoy your stay and don't cross me! :D

    I was once a mighty lurker. Now...slightly less mighty. I'm also sort of a newcomer to adventure games by comparison to a lot of the people here, having started with Escape from Monkey Island when I was thirteen. Since then, I've worked my way through pretty much all the Lucas Arts titles and am about ready to get started on Sierra. I'm a much more of a RTS and RPG fan and most of my games fall into one of these categories.

    I also like to complain about my major, watch movies and TV shows of varying quality, read, write, sing, sail when I can, and listen to my weird medley iPod (everything from Mozart to Megadeth).

    I often pop up randomly in the forums to throw in the odd bon mott.

    Ooh, what kind of sailing? I know it's different, but do you do windsurfing by any chance?

    I'm more of a tall ship sailor. Mainly I like to climb to the highest yardarm and skylark well everyone on deck does all the work.:D

  • I'm Remolay, a very dorky dork, troper, and self proclaimed second worst rapper in the world.
    I've been a fan of Telltale since Tales of Monkey Island, then I managed to figure out how to get Abe Lincoln Must Die to work. It is currently my goal to get the entirety of season 2 of Sam and Max legally for free, as I already got all of them but Moai Better Blues via free episode codes and Christmas/halloween stuff.

    I'm a writer, although not a very productive one, and a part of the TTGD&D group.

    If you want to find me on anywhere but Kongregate I am Remolay.

    Remolay was honestly just a bunch of random letters that looked like it could be a night elfs name when I started playing World of Warcraft. It stuck

    This is a great forum full of very nice people, so behave yourself and you'll fit right in. Actually, I'm lying about that. You'll have a ton of success here if you're as big of a dick as possible. Make fun of the mods a lot, and show rampant sexism toward the female members, and you'll be sure to become popular quickly.

    Hello I'm Irishmile..

    I just got fired from my job... I have a crippling substance abuse problem, I have multiple meaningless relationships with women that were born in a different decade..... OH wait ... that isn't me that's Charlie Sheen.

    Really though I like these boards because it provides me an outlet to talk about things I love with people that share many of the same interests...

    I have three great kids who are so well behaved its ridiculous and a wonderful and amazingly beautiful wife named Zua.. If only I had a boatload of money I would say I was living the American Dream... I love doing art... sometimes I share it here...

  • Hey I'm zounds! :cool:

    Sorta new to the forums here, but I like to talk about adventure games and stuff so I thought I'd introduce myself a little.

    I have been playing games for about 28 years now. I started when I was 4 and pretty much haven't stopped since. (except for a 2 year period in which I hippied out for a while :rolleyes:) My first system was my NES but I have a big family and between all my older cousins I had access to pretty much every single gaming system ever. I inherited my cuz's C64 a long time ago, when he "grew out of it" and have an enormous collection for it. I use an emulator these days though. I've always had a special love for PC games. Adventure gaming was very huge in my childhood. Again, I inherited like every single Sierra game and played them religiously. I also worked in a small PC store in high school and have been a techie since then.

    Nowadays I spend a lot of my free time playing all sorts of games. I primarily use my PC but I have a 360 and some handhelds. I also enjoy gutting old computers and refurbishing various tech things. Not a pro really, just a dabbler I say.

    Favorite game ever: changes all the time. Right now I'm so hyped up for Deus Ex 3 that my favorite would be Deus Ex. Next week it may be Jagged Alliance 2 and then Fallout 2 etc etc.

    Hi! I'm puzzlebox (like it says over there on the left). I came to the forums for the mass excitement of Monkey Island and then never quite managed to leave.

    I was born and raised in the wilds of remote Australia, but several years living in sunny old England have civilised me a little.

    Like the other mods (grey usernames with the bunny ears), I'm happy to help out with any forum-related worries you might have. Welcome!

  • Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. Also, borderline poverty and trashiness. Or somewhere in the middle. Anywho: I hail from the deep South and enjoy - in no particular order; Battlestar Galactica, firearms, HP Lovecraft, anime and OH YEAH! Video games!

    I know RatherDashing IRL and antagonize him greatly and though I started life on this forum as a somewhat notable troll, I have become somewhat tolerated by the Telltale community. You might even say I can call some of them... Well... Acquaintances. Maybe.

    I'm also the resident Telltale amputee. And socialist. Also, I will one day rule you all.

    Comrade Pants, awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
