Hi All,

My name's Peter. I'm 29 and work for a tech company from my apartment in the middle of Brooklyn, NY.

Currently, I'm playing way too much Diablo 3. I'm looking to go outside soon, since the weather's breaking, so will probably be hiking, running etc. in the NY state area. Other than that, I'm pretty into music stuff and other things.

Looking forward to speaking with you folks.

Hi all,

I've been listening to the podcast for about 3 years now and have been a subscriber for 2 years. In the last year or so I've been posting a little to the forums and realizing more and more just what an excellent bunch of similar-minded people you all are. Giantbomb has come to fill that social space around gaming for me, that the high pace of London hive-living has increasingly been preventing.

I like watching quicklooks with Brad to see how quickly he will die. I like listening to Patrick expand into his analyses and critiques while simultaneously chuckling at his self seriousness yet also being deeply interested in what he has to say. I like Jeff and Vinny's banter as it switches back and forth between informed discussion and dumb nonsense. I like that video games are appreciated as a form of entertainment worthy of lengthy and detailed discussion here... but I love it that Giantbomb will also sometimes go FULL stupid just for the sake of it.

Basically this place is pretty damned amazing and reminds me of the days that I was lucky enough to have a bunch of dudes to hang out with in real life to talk about all this sort of glorious nonsense with...

Hi duders,

I'm Barry, I work in HR for a mining company up in here in Toronto Canada.

Basically working my way through Reaper of Souls at the moment, in amongst some Titanfall occcasionally, and waiting on the final version of Starbound to come along. I buy way too much on Steam that I will never play, and probably watch way too much stuff on here.

Thanks!

Hey I'm oscar, I'm a poor 20something but working a job I enjoy if you can believe it!

#2633 Posted by vocalcannibal (129 posts) -

Totally missed this thread, whooooops.

Anyway, I'm Kristen. Twenty years old and I'm wrapping up my sophomore year of college. My major is fashion design, so I am an avid appreciator of nicely tailored clothing and expensive shoes that I couldn't even dream of being able to afford. My favorite video game is Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and I do the convention/cosplay thing several times a year. I like Skullgirls a lot.

#2635 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5074 posts) -

Anyway, welcome and enjoy your stay.

Hello everyone, my name is Becca. I'm 22 and I'm Irish but currently live in England. I love video games and have been playing them since I was a child. I love discussions about video games and joined up to talk more about them. Other hobbies of mine are reading, watching sports and listening to music. Hope to see you all around the forums :)

I might have introduced myself earlier in this thread, but I can't remember. Anyway, I'm cooljammer00, and I'm a Brooklyn based video production and video games enthusiast. Thus, you can probably assume why Vinny is one of my favorite GB people. All the NYC talk in the recent Bombcast episodes, as well as that thread about meeting other Duders, has gotten me jonesing to collaborate and/or associate with other NYC based GB Duders.

Hey, guys!

I'm 24-years-old, just got back from a 4 months trip from India (had a great time), so I'm currently unemployed. Started playing Lost Odyssey on the Xbox 360. I haven't joined a new forum for a very long time because I was uninterested, but after reading a thread here (I can't understand how to make the link option work) I decided to join. I was happy to read how open-minded and welcoming you are to other people and that's what makes a great community for me.

So see ya on the boards!

Hey, you can call me poop or justpooparoundit.

I'm 26, and currently writing about the local music scene in Kansas City.

Going to college, double majoring in Journalism & Political Science.

Starting a gaming blog, while I have a tremendous love for music I won't lie...

Having a career writing about games sounds great. So right now that is what I'm focusing on.

Also, the other reason that I'm losing my edge musically is because the rock n roll life style takes its toll!

Glad to be a part of the community. Big thanks to Giant Bomb for existing!

It's a great experience for both men and women, although women (more specifically white women) will undoubtedly get sexually harassed without a male friend to accompany them.

Hello, I'm Finn Felton,

A Kopi Luwak dealer in Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, and Dubai. I also want to improve my accent in English, any suggestion?

Pimsleur is an audiobook series that can teach you to speak English fluently. You can find some of them on Youtube, as well as other places on the web.

duolingo.com is a website that teaches you how to write and read in English. It's completely free, and works on your phone as well. It has objectives, levels, and achievements, so it should appeal to the gamer inside of you.

ureddit.com/ also known as the University of Reddit has language courses that may fit your needs. It's all web based, but with college grade professionalism. Also, FREE.

Mind if I call you fecal instead? It's just so much more formal.
