Mass Shift reporting in.

Been a longtime gamer and love gaming discussions. Especially around E3 and the dawn of new hardware generations, whether that be for PC or consoles. Have always found the GAF gaming forums informative, most discussions I've engaged in around the blogosphere usually lead back here.

My old job (no spare time) kept me away from gaming for nearly 4 years now and I feel like I'm being introduced to it all over again. Thanks for the approval and I hope to be a positive addition to the community.

Hi. I'm not exactly new. I was more or less just a lurker before.

I just want to discuss games and the excitement they bring us without every thread turning into a controversy.

Cheers!
Hi, New BLOOOOOOOOD !

Duffy here

I live in Seattle, been self employed washing residential windows since 1992, still working! Been gaming for almost as long.

My first video game was Turok on N64. Played it on my nephew's console, was so taken with it I went out and bought the console and the game for myself!
Been gaming ever since. Drifted over to PC and played there for years. My first online gaming experience was Unreal Tournament.
Recently I have been playing almost exclusively on console. My son has commandeered the PC, but that is fine. I really enjoy console gaming over being hunched over a keyboard, sitting in a computer chair.
In general I prefer Japanese developed games over those built in the west. Just my taste. I loved Nioh. I enjoyed Dragons Dogma more than Skyrim. Loved the Souls games but found Witcher 3 rather so so.. Monster Hunter World is another recent favorite.
I do not have any daily life friends that game, so when I want to talk about a game, or gaming, I come to the internet. Was surprise to find NeoGaf has an opening. Applied years ago but was turned down. I think you had to be in the gaming industry to qualify. Best wishes to all!

Hello NeoGAF community.

Figured I would finally join up. Lurking for years. Migrated from IGNs boards back in the day. Love gaming, tv shows, movies, books, powerlifting. It is a really wonderful time to be alive with these hobbies.

As Dr. Nick always says, "Hi everybody!"

Hey Mass Shift, welcome aboard. Any games you're hyped for this E3?
I'm a bit surprised at myself but Bleeding Edge is catching my interest a bit. 4v4 and Melee based combat sounds different. So I'm going to keep an eye on it before I make any snap judgements based on the trailer.

Cyberpunk is at the top, God's and Monsters, Death Loop, 12 Minutes (very intrigued), Almost thought the Blair Witch game was a new Alan Wake. Lol. I admittedly yawned at the Halo Infinite trailer until DF's breakdown. Now I'm really curious about what 343 will do.

There's a lot of stuff I have to through

I just recently started reading Beserk and it is quite incredible! It heavily inspired the Dark Souls series and while my picture was originally from DS3 I have found that it is equally fitting for Beserk so you could say it's a win-win situation. ;D

Hell yeah, I am honored haha! I am still pretty early into the manga but the art is really incredible and Guts is such a badass character! Reading about lore inspirations from Berserk in Fromsoft games has been really fun too. I have lost myself in such for more hours than I would like to admit lol. :)

The honour is mine my friend. If you think the early manga drawing is incredible, wait till you see the latest chapters. Miura went digital drawing now and the details? Oooffffff

Heyo, new here. Been aware of NeoGAF for a while but I've only become interested in checking it out since I heard it changed a lot since the whole "thing" with previous users leaving. Looks like an alright place so I thought I'd spread my wings and check it out.

Hi! I'm new, I was looking for a gaming forum that wasn't a sanitarium, so I passed about getting an account on ResetEra and discovered this. English is not my primary language, but I guess I won't have any problem expressing my opinions! Read a lot in this forum and seems nice, let's if I can apport more :)

Hullo there. My names Horace and the grey in my title is because Gandalf the Grey is my favourite character in The Lord of the Rings.

I've been playing vidyagames since the days of the Atari 2600, but I only got into the hobby for real when I got my first console, the original Xbox, back in 2002.

I've only browsed these forums before but it's only now that I've been able to officially join. Heres hoping we all get along and discuss stuff without much incidence.

Welcome to the forum! Any particular Xbox games that really stood out to you and drew you into the hobby?

To be honest, I only got the Xbox because I wanted to play Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball. :messenger_winking_tongue:

But there were other games that I really enjoyed back then. The original Knights of the Old Republic is a fantastic Star Wars title. Ninja Gaiden from Team Ninja remains a favourite of mine as well. While nowadays I'd find it's design annoying, I really enjoyed playing the original Splinter Cell.

Indeed! It's my favorite shmup.

Wander on over to our humble shmup OT if you're a fan of the genre. Nice to have you on board.
I like the Cave games, but I'm not really that good at them - I got the board when it was being thrown away (because it was dead) and hoped it would be an easy fix, but all the obvious stuff (clocks, power rails and the ROM checksums) looks good, but it just gives a black screen and there is hardly any bus activity. I used to be big into arcade boards, but ran out of time and space :messenger_frowning_...

Hey!

Former video game journalist who casually streams. As of this moment in writing my internet is out so I have to play some backlog Indie games, which isn't a bad thing. :) Here to look for some friendly conversations and hopefully make some friends. :)
