Uh, hi.

I've been visiting GiantBomb for a while now and listening to the Bombcast pretty intensely for the last year or so. That's how I got 'into' the site I guess. I have a friend who was/is into the site and pushed me to check it out, it was a long process.

Anyway. The very idea of welcoming myself to a place, at this point essentially only talking to myself, seems pretty fuckin' dumb. But whatever. I am 26, generally educated and way too big of a fan of games. I'll try to blog about whatever game related stuff is on my mind but I'm not terrific at maintaining a consistent pace with things like that. I am great at messaging people about stuff, so if you wanna say hi it would not fall on deaf ears.

Welcome to the site, duder!

Yo!

Pro tip, if you want the color of your name changed, switch your alliance in the settings. Seeing the word blue in a name that is colored green is off-putting, but whatever.

Also, welcome.

Welcome to the site. I also listened to the bombcast and visited the site quite a bit before really examining the other aspects of the site.

You're 26 and still play video games? What's wrong with you? Kidding. :-) I'm the same age and also still love video games. You should probably check out this list of GiantBomb memes so you're not lost when people reference them.

Welcome to the forums! I see you've already changed your avatar so that rules you out as a spammer. If you enjoy the Bombcast, go and check out the Endurance Run archive. No, seriously. Check it out!

Jeust really isn't someone who can be trusted, is he?

To the OP: Welcome to the site, duder! Hope you like it around here. The traffic of the site's forums has slowed down drastically in the last year or so, but the contents are still pretty good

Welcome aboard!

the mop, broom and other cleaning supplies are in the closet. Please sweep and mop the floors and clean all the surfaces. I'll send Brad by later to check.

@bluefish: you know about the initiation process's here right? Don't worry, it only stings for three days.

I can't wait for your inauguration I hear that there will cake, finally it's not a lie or is it? Welcome to giantbomb and as you may have or may not have derived, omniscient was taken which is surprising considering how original the word is (I'm being sarcastic).

Stop trying to dupe new people into being pro-Playstation! CONSOLE WARS GRAARGRGHH!

Also, I dig the subversive angle on having the word "blue" in green, kinda like when that tricky Kawashima cat is fucking with your mind via DS. Heh, that crazy doctor... glasses glasses!

I don't care what everyone else says: no one cares that you have graced this website with your presence - a thread dedicated solely to your welcoming party is 100% unnecessary and only serves to burden the servers and clog up the thread list. Everyone else is glad to say, "Welcome duder", but I say fuck that and abide by the rules of the Internet, namely "You are anonymous, and unless you have something to contribute, stay that way."

There's an introduce yourself thread already in existence. I feel about things like this with the same level of annoyance as some others seem to feel about the relationship threads or the like.

A blog is an acceptable way of introducing oneself, so whatevs.

#38 Posted by bluefish (372 posts) -

Holy 'effing christ that's a lot of replies! Is there a list of people just joining somewhere? I was preparing to enjoy the curtosy of MAYBE one post being like "sup" so this is weird. And nice!

Thanks everyone!

#42 Posted by bluefish (372 posts) -

@CH3BURASHKA: As far as I know this is just everyone posting on my blog... Is this in the general forums too? ...That would explain how I got such an insane amount of replies...

#43 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6077 posts) -

Holy shit, a new comer actually wrote a blog post, instead of posting two words? You're one of the rare ones. Welcome.
