Hi, I'm Slate
When it comes to gaming, atmosphere and aesthetics is everything/ gameplay comes second/ and story 3rd
I am who I am today because of the Playstion!
Since being captivated by that 32 bit world, I have been a musician inspired by some of the best video game soundtracks.
The Threads of Fate (Dewpism) OST by Junya Nakano is my absolute favorite.
if you like strange/dark/aggressive/industrial style music check out my bandcamp page

Hello all. This is my first vidya forum and honestly I haven’t lurked that long. In fact yesterday was the first time I visited the site. I was introduced to NeoGaf’s existence since the incident. I was intrigued by it. Yesterday I wanted to see how this site, as well as the alternate held up over the ordeal. Needless to say I like this site’s new way of doing things better.

What got me to really sign up was the way in which EvilLore specifically carried himself after the ordeal. I was really impressed by him and his ability to persevere, whatever the circumstances may be.

But about me-

I am but a simple 22 year old nearly college graduate who likes some vidya. I have a casual level of knowledge for most things. The games I’m into right now include Mount and Blade: Warband, Path of Exile, Warframe, and a few things on the side if I’m in the mood. I don’t know if there’s anything more than that. I mean, I’m an Eagle Scout? Lol

Hi members, both new and old. ;)

We've set this imaginatively titled thread up as a friendly, welcoming space for people to just say "Hi" and maybe share a few words about themselves. This was my introduction from the thread we created for staff members, it doesn't need to be anything of that size though, anything would be great.

Maybe tell us what sort of games you like, what games your looking forward to, what non-gaming things you're interested in and maybe even a little bit about your choice of avatar.

REMINDER: THE DEFAULT AVATARS WILL BE REMOVED SHORTLY SO YOU'LL NEED TO UPLOAD ONE VIA YOUR ACCOUNT AT THE VERY TOP OF THE PAGE OR REQUEST A CUSTOM AVATAR HERE - Official NeoGAF Avatar Request Thread (work in progress)
We actually have several hundred brand new members that have just been joined up (Neophytes), I've added a few links below so that newer members can find their way to threads that may be of use to them.

------------------------------
BASIC MEMBERSHIP TYPES

There are three main types of membership on NeoGAF which I'll give a brief overview on below. You may also see other types of members in the community but these are the "standard" membership types.

Neophytes - The absolute newest of members.
  • Unable to create new threads. (Neophytes can now request to have a thread created on their behalf, follow this link for details.)
  • Unable to send messages using the NeoGAF messaging service. Able to receive messages though.
  • Unable to edit own posts after five minutes.
  • All posts are unpublished until a member of staff validates and publishes the posts.
  • Unable to enter NeoGAF Giveaways.

Neo Members - Have been seen to contribute positively to the forum.
  • Unable to create new threads.

Members - Have demonstrated a sustained positive contribution to the forum.
  • No member restrictions.

Although number of posts are also a factor in people moving from one type of membership to another, the reason we're not listing specifics is because it isn't solely based on that so somebody who has contributed positively could well be moved earlier than somebody with twice as many posts. Don't spam posts and expect to be moved earlier because it's very easy for the move to be delayed if we see that you're having a negative effect of the community.

Although being a full Member is permanent, in the general sense, it is possible for people to have rights removed if its deemed fit by the team. This would be unusual but it certainly isn't unheard of.

As some may already have noticed, we now have a Giveaways Tab at the top of the page, we're currently hosting our first giveaway and it's very much a work in progress but each individual giveaway can be set with a required minimum membership level rather than there being an overall requirement, so it's always worth checking there. Neophytes will not normally be able to enter though but as this one is a bit of test run for us, it is actually possible.

If you are a Neophyte and are wanting to contact staff for something and it isn't appropriate to use the Report Function (Reporting inappropriate posts) or the Error Reporting & Feedbackthread then you are able to do this using the Contact Us tab at the very bottom of the page or by using this email address - support@neogaf.com

Although you may find that you have more or less privileges than other members with different membership types, it doesn't mean that one type of member has authority over other members, it's not a rank and should never be treated as such.

------------------------------​

Welcome to all members and thank you all for your contributions here, there's been a lot of support from the community here recently and we all hope that the you will lead by example for the new people rather than just relying on us to tell people what to do.



USEFULL THREADS

FEEL FREE TO USE THESE THREADS, THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR.​




MOD NOTE - For your first post dont just put "Hi" or "Hey" or "Yo" or something. We get a lot of bots so to distinguish please make your first post at least a sentence to show you arent a robot. And we can learn more about you that way! Thank you.
Hi there.

Everyone. Been viewing the forum for a while now. It’s benefited me a lot and looking forward to hopefully contribute in a meaningful way at some point. I currently have an Xbox one. Looking forward to getting kakarot the dbz game that’s been out as I’m a huge dbz fan.
Anyways hope to meet everyone and happy to be on the forum.

Hi I'm Nessuno, which in italian means "nobody". Odysseus used this name to trick the Cyclops in order to escape the cave where his crew was trapped, may his wisdom help me outsmart/ignore fanboys of every colour until next-gen finally arrives!

On a more serious note, thank you Neogaf staff for accepting me, looking forward to be part of this amazing gaming community :)

Hiya everyone I love video games and been playing games since the arcades and NES. I like talking about games as well as new happenings in the industry so a video game forum is a great fit. So far I am enjoying the culture and how quickly we cover new topics. That's pretty much it, thanks!

Hello, I have been a member of the other purple forum since its inception but I have been banned few months back for defending a cosplayer and having an opinion about Witcher that didnt match the view of the mods. I hope I will have a better time here.
We're overall a pretty chill bunch. A lot of different opinions, but as long as you are respectful to us, we'll be respectful to you. Hope you stick around. :messenger_heart:

Thanks for having me. I will be honest, I totally missed a place like this. A place where all important gaming news, rumors and insider info appears. I have been looking for an alternative, but I couldn't stick around if there was no community or a place for discussion.

Hi

I have been a long time lurker on Gaf and I've finally decided to join to participate in all the great discussions in the community. I also post and contribute on N4G.

My preferences are Sony and Nintendo but I also play a lot of FF14 on my PC and I own an Xbox One X. Can't wait for the next generation of gaming to start.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Hey!

37 year old male from Norway. Games mostly on pc and some on ps4.
My PS4 is being used for games like The last of us, Horizon Zero dawn, God of war, Red Dead Redemption 2, Uncharted series, Metal Gear series.
My pc for PUBG, some Warzone. For a while there where alot of Dayz, Arma 3 and battlefield 2,3,4, and 1. The modern Fallout games and elder scrolls games are also some of my favorites.

Looking forward to the Final Fantasy VII remake. Final Fantasy VII is one of my best gaming childhood memories. The best xmas ever!
Also looking forward to The Last of Us 2, Cyberpunk maybe more but cant remember right now.

Have been on Sonys playstation plattform from childhood, mainly because I like their 1 party titles.
And since I own a pc I dont see the point in owning a xbox.

I also found of building my own pc. My gtx1070 and intel 6600k cpu will be upgraden to a Ryzen cpu and amd radeon gpu later this year.

Hey there, longtime lurker, like 10+ years. I never felt like signing up because 1. I knew I would be banned within a week for wrongthink by the previous mods and 2. I wasnt comfortable signing up using any email account other than my yahoo account.
I definitely appreciate the new direction that the site has taken, and enjoy reading the back and forth political discussion that is now allowed.
I'm in my mid thirties, proud American, xbox fan (although i grew up with nintendos and i have a ps4 pro), detroit sports fan, and red wings superfan.

New people. Welcome. Your first action after signing up should be to get yourself a forum Avatar. You need a static SFW/SFL 400x400 image (jpeg/png/gif). If you need help in making an Avatar there's a dedicated Forum Avatar request Thread where the more graphics savvy amongst us can help you out.

As GAF grows in popularity it's useful for other users to be able to identify you by your Avatar because people are more likely to remember a name with a face versus a single letter on colour background.

Hey there, been lurking for a little while and thought I might as well participate.

I generally like most kinds of games with exception of sports games which I struggle to enjoy. Had a few years off from videogames but now back and currently playing Nioh 1 and MHW: Iceborne. I also have an embarrassing urge to reach for platinum trophies (help me).


Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

Hi everyone! I'm a datawarehouse developer from germany and nearly 40 years old. Gaming is my passion since ~30 years :) In the past I have mainly played on the PC. But since I have children I mainly play on Xbox. PS4 for some exclusives but the Xbox fits better to me because of Cloud Sync an the controller layout.

Looking forward to talk with you people!
