Introduce Yourself!

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 79K 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

  • Hey there everybody! I joined up because I really love what Telltale has done with their latest project in The Walking Dead Game, showcasing video-game storytelling like no one else. As an aspiring Game Designer, you guys are just a huge inspiration to me with your focus on story, so I'm happy to be here and discuss the wonderful games you make and the stories you tell. Other than that, I'm a fan of games like Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect, and much of BioWare's stuff, so basically, I like story!

    Welcome to the forums, Austin. I joined because of the Walking Dead game too! Anyways, let's wait for episode 3...again, welcome!

  • hello everyone, my name is Brian, I am a freelance comic book artist from Canada, I was a tattoo artist for the past 8 months, and now I am planning on going into fine arts and video game design or animation...I came across the forums by stumbling across the Sam & Max web comic that was posted awhile back. I hope to meet a lot of cool people here!

  • Hi guys,
    I am Zylinderknopf. You may call me "Zyl". I am a 19 years old German. But I can speak English well (more or less). I can also speak German (fluently). I still go to school, but I am 'bout to finish school in ~ 10 months. Then I will most likely visit an university.

    Anyway, I am a big fan of The Walking Dead. I played both episodes and WOW; it was just awesome. Both episodes have a great story. And I cannot wait to play episode 3. I played many games and I own a PS3, but this game is one of the best. That is for sure. :D

  • It kinda hit me that I was posting in threads without even introducing myself... Well that's just rude!

    My name is Jordy Licht (really??!!) and I'm a 28 year old recruitment consultant from Amsterdam, The Netherlands (or Holland, if you prefer).
    When I'm not working I'm watching series and movies, composing and recording music, or I'm gaming... A couple of my favorite series are Lost, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Carnivale, Community and more geeky stuff. I'm not even gonna go into the favorite movies area; I'll be staring at this message for the next 24 hours if I try that.
    As for music, I graduated the Conservatory of Amsterdam with a bachelor in popular music with guitar as main instrument. Even though I enjoy playing all kinds of music, rock & metal is in my heart and this will always be my favorite music to listen to and play. Favorite artist of all-time: Devin Townsend. He combines 'poppyness' (awesome word, I know) with heavy metal, creating exacly the kind of music I enjoy.
    Gamingwise I'm into games with a great storyline. A couple of my favorites are the Silent Hill games, the Half-Life series, the Fallout series, Portal (2), Psychonauts. Oldschool Lucasarts adventures are among my favorite games too, which brought me to Telltale in the first place. First ever game I bought was The Tales of Monkey Island, after finishing those I was completely hooked on Telltale, emptying my bankaccount on their heads...
    The Walking Dead game is my favorite Telltale game at this moment, Back To The Future following very closely... I'll always be a Back To The Future / Christopher Lloyd fan.

  • Hello, I am Johnny, I am from South Carolina... Love gaming since i was a lil pup ... If anyone wants to game or chat and you are on xbox360 my gamertag is TheJohnnyDarko so feel free to add me as a friend ...I have no idea what else to say except nice to meet u all.

  • Hello Everyone, I'm Dustin, from IL. Decided to lift my self-imposed exile of message boards and rejoin the fray.

  • This is probably where I should have started when I joined.

    Well, MaconMajr here.

    Just for new comers: I'm a fan of Telltales Walking Dead game

    I'm a fan of the Resident Evil franchise and anything good survival horror.

    Fan of Transformers (Classic G1 First Two Seasons and the Movie, and TF: Prime)

    X-Men fan (some of the comics, the first two films and First Class)

    That's bout it. Plus, I have fan fic ideas brewing in my head that I'm just itching to get on paper, in due time.

  • Hi, there!

    My name is Javier (Javi for friends!), I'm 19 years old, student, I'm from Barcelona, Spain. Big fan of TT's The Walking Dead game!
