Since it's a thread in which we're encouraged to blatantly post about ourselves, just thought I'd at least try to dispel the idea that seems to have held with some people that I'm a Sega fanboy. Fanboyism is sheer idiocy, I don't like to be associated with that shit (it's kinda like if you had to wear a nazi armband to work...or something).

I was really just trying to get the goat of all the nintendrones on this board (I won't name names...we all know who they are :wink: ) with all the ikaruga comments, really I own and am quite happy with other brand consoles, namely nes, snes, and ps2.

Hell, no. You're an anti-Nintendo fanboy or just an anti-fanboy.

I applaud you, sir, for your stance. Your body is a temple.

I'm like that too, except I started drinking umeshu, which is Japanese plum wine. Lovely stuff. Hic.

Again? Well, maybe the results are a little more different now... regurgitated game meme :p

1. First game you ever played: an Atari sampler pack of some kind, those things where there's huge pixel tanks and shit
2. Last game you played: Platypus
3. First game you ever beat: Adventure! XD AWMG, AM I THE ONLY ONE?!
4. Last game you have beaten: Insaniquarium Deluxe :?
5. Favorite genre: puzzles/shmups/certain board games and card games... oh, and DDR :P
6. Least favorite genre: I really dread the idea of playing through an RPG ever again... also, sports and sports-esque titles [Quidditch World Cup] are eh.
7. Favorite underrated game: Monster Farm [Monster Rancher] Battle Card
8. Most loathed overrated game: Anything endorsed in any way by Nickelodeon... I mean, at least Final Fantasy has nice character design, if nothing else.
9. Favorite male character: Oh, I'm soooo leaning towards Shinra... Runners-up: Shadow the Hedgehog, Vincent Valentine
10. Favorite female character: Wow, I'm actually blanking on game characters right now... I'll default it to Kagari for the time being. Edit: Okay, I remembered Lucca. I'll tack her on to the list.
[9-10b. Favorite character of no sex: the Metalstorm M-308 Gunner :D or the R-9WF fuselage or Vic Viper T-301B ^^ heh...]
11. Favorite villain: Sadly, it was Sephiroth for so long... AHA, I will say LORDS DARIGAN AND KASS! :D
12. Favorite soundtrack: Dance Dance Revolution XD though I've been listening to Battle Garegga in the car lately and can't stop...
13. Favorite special attack: the R-9WF [Sweet Memories] charge shot ;)
14. Favorite weapon: Type-2 Options!!!
15. Favorite scene: The Ikaruga [or Ginkei] taking the foreground during the Chapter 1 dialogue... though the Meridellian War aftermath was pretty cool :D I dunno, I don't go for scenes so much nowadays.
16. Favorite ending: Kingdom Hearts was pretty, though it left me hungry for content. Parasite Eve was nice until the whole glowing eyes part... I'm not terribly satisfied with a lot of endings.
17. Favorite intro: Still Chrono Cross :)
18. Favorite multiplayer game: NEOPETS, ARGH XDXDXD
19. Best plot: I'm increasingly partial to NO plot in games, but what there is of it in R-Type Final and Ikaruga is strangely interesting :) I'll work on figuring out Shikigami no Shiro [2] to see if that's as interesting.
20. Favorite anime show: This has to do with games...? [Right now, Hikaru no Go!]
21. Game you've been thinking about a lot lately and want to replay: Platypus, since it's the most recent splurge. I also want to sit down and play through Populous: The Beginning again--it's a neat variant of the traditional Populous.

Boring details:

Real Name: Julie M, TEH JULIES ["Why am I plurals?"] to Ashura

Favourite

- Food: eel sushi, or Kardo's lamb kabab
- Drink: Gatorade, because I only need at most two to last the work day
- Book: America: The Book :D

- Movie: Memento... I'm fascinated with memory loss as plot device
- Music Genre: Shmuppy Techno J-Pop and Sponge
Religious preference: ambiguous personal garbage somewhat like Buddhism
Vices: just sex ;) I don't like things that fuck with my body except another body :)

Edit: I feel a bit searchable! Hmm.

Here's the short version, I don't feel much like typing:

Name: Roger Post
Nickname: Postman
Locaton: New Jersey, USA
Age: Just turned 30

Been unemployed for about a year and a half now (obviously single too - no money=no woman). Started off writing tons of reviews for shmups, then branched off with my own shmup site (thanks Malc!). Aside from shooters, loves the occational RPG, Wipeout series, Castlevania series, Metroid Prime, and Tetris Attack / Pokemon Puzzle League. Gaming arsenal: Playstation, PS2, Dreamcast, Gamecube, PC. When I force myself to actually leave the house, it's either for food or to hit the gym, so a good portion of my time is shmup related.

Greatest gaming accomplishment: Completing Wipeout 2 while missing one of my contacts.
