Hello, Giant Bomb. I am a 1up refugee, and I am sad and without a blogging home. If you don't know, 1up was an IGN branded site where you could blog, post in forums, write reviews, and all that other fun stuff. I was pretty active on that site for the past four years, but now it's closing down.

So I'm looking for a new home. Will it be Giant Bomb? I don't know. I like this site. It's all modern and stuff. ;)

My name is Matt, and I live in Arizona. I was born in 1977, about the same time video games were born, I guess, and I've grown up as they've grown up. I have a special affection for the NES and the Genesis, the PSONE, the Dreamcast, and now the PS3. I also love the two Xbox's and the Wii's, etc. I mostly play my PS3 now, with a spattering of Wii and Gamecube (yes, I have them both set up....)

As far as new games are concerned, I've been playing Last Story, and am hoping to pick up Etrian Odyssey next week when it comes out for the 3DS. I am a big fan of JRPG's, and am also playing Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, for my PSP, which I love more every day. I recently downloaded the on sale Final Fantasy Tactics, though I had it for my iPad, but I wanted to play it with buttons.

I hope to also play Ni No Kuni soon. I think the game I am most looking forward to is GTA V (God help me) and Final Fantasy X HD.

Anyway, that's my introduction. I hope to make some new friends, and hopefully find some old ones here. Take care and have a lovely day.

I came from 1up back when it was sold to UGO and was turned into a shadow of itself. Such a shame what happened to the site. But I can tell you, you will be fine here. So welcome, duder.

Welcome 1uper! I was once a 1up refugee back in early 2009 when the big layoff happened. I actually found out about giantbomb though the 1up Yours podcast when Jeff and Ryan guested on in the December before. I hope you'll find this to be a wonderful new gaming home the way I did.

Welcome!

Quick warning - you can only post 5 times per 24 hours until you've got 25 posts. You'll be there soon enough!

Also, we used to have a list of Giantbomb memes so that you could know "naked cartoon pussy" is a joke, but unfortunately it disappeared with the old site.

Welcome :) I too am an ex 1upper. I, like many others, came to Giant Bomb after the 2009 lay offs. I was with them since 1up started so it's hard to see 1up go. But, we welcome you to the GB community and hope you have fun here duder :)

Hey Snee, I've created an account here. It's not working very well at the moment. I can't log in directly to the site. I have to use the confirmation email that was sent to me every time. I get some message about not being able to find a page if I try logging in normally.

If we don't secure the borders this sort of this is going to happen over and over again.

God it's nice to see someone with a single digit post count that can actually form legible sentences and doesn't start with a random inane thread. Welcome duder, you'll do well here.

@sneenlantern: Thank you for those personal details Matt, they have now been homogenised into the Giant Bomb matrix. After processing you will be assigned an identity code and asked to report immediately to your neuro-pod accommodation. The spiderbots will escort you from your current location to your new residence, you won't need to bring any personal effects.

Your flesh is our flesh.

Your mind is our mind.

Welcome.

Welcome to the community. There was a new website launch last week and things have been a little screwy lately. I hope things work out for you here.

Welcome to Giant Bomb. If you have any problems or questions, feel free to read up on our FAQ (I recommend the Forum Rules - they're extra spicy and come with a side of hot dogs) or contact one of us friendly Internet Robocops. We'll beat you senseless for asking, but we do it with wiffle bats, so it's not so bad.

The 1UP podcasts and video shows used to be the best around the net, but those days are long over. It's sad, but the website has been a shell of its former glory for a few years now. Still, I'm sure some members just loved being there with people they felt comfortable with. Starting some place new and unfamiliar can be scary. Giant Bomb is a good place, though. "Don't be a dick" is the main rule to follow. Welcome to the party.

I looked for it when we "moved" to this site, and couldn't find it. It's too bad that it didn't make it.
