Oy, introduce yourself!

Yello. I have already forgotten my own username, but - without checking - it’s something like Echas-Brentum (as will be proven either right or wrong above). He/him, and basically joined the forum cause I listened to the podcasts a lot, and it’s always nice to have another forum to occasionally ramble on (and specifically cause of that thread about books like Kentucky Route Zero).

Edit: Remembered the name perfectly after all. Back of the net.

Hello! My name is Jonathan, though I still answer on the internets to Amishpriest (a 20 year old joke nickname from high school that I forget the origin of). I’m 37 years old and reside in Silver Spring, MD (near DC). Been following Austin and Patrick since Giant Bomb like many others here. I do a lot of running, so Waypoint Radio has become one of my go-to podcasts along with Idle Weekend. I really greatly admire and respect all the Waypoint staff’s work, and this seems like a great community to go along with it.

Gaming-wise, I’m more of a buy too much and play too little type. Working on Xenoblade 2 now but there’s so much from 2017 I need to go back to such as Nier, Yakuza 0 & Kiwami, Zelda: BotW, Prey (which Rob and Danielle turned me on to)…and the list goes on.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the forums!

what’s up I’m lily, 26, she/they. @spatterdocks on twitter. I illustrate & do BG paint so that’s over there as well as cat pix. I came to waypoint through being a fan of friends at the table & really enjoyed the sort of video game writing the site was geared towards so I’ve stuck around (+ decided to stick my toesies into the forums).


#1400

Hi all! I’m Jeremy and I go by @porchrates on twitter. I play a lot of PUBG and found out about waypoint this summer through breakfast and battlegrounds. I was distant from video game publications for awhile as there was nowhere that felt inclusive or progressive enough or really took the medium of games seriously as an art form. Aside from gaming I run a blog where I review porches and outdoor seating and I’m trying to get into games criticism.


#1401

Hey y’all! I’m Jordan, currently 25 and living in NYC. I feel like pronouns are tentative (for me), but as of right now, I’m most comfortable with she/her.

Video games as a hobby ebbs and flows; sometimes I’ll be obsessed and play 'em for several hours a day, but there are times I go months without touching one. Even when that happens, I still love reading about them and (especially) watching other people play. You can find me @ MoondustMust on PS4, Steam, Twitch, etc.

When Austin left Giant Bomb, I knew I had to check out whatever he’d be a part of. I’ve always been too shy to participate in gaming communities, but this place just feels good, so fingers crossed that this won’t be a case of popping in and disappearing. :sweat_smile:


#1402

Hi. I’m Helga, and I’m blatantly here to grind for an invite to the discord :slight_smile:
(sorry, i’m just not really into forums and this is apparently the only way there is)


#1403

Hey Everyone,

I’ve been browsing the forums since the start of the forums, but finally made an account today. I’m glad to have finally joined the community, and have been following Austin for a long time now.

Favorite Series is the Tales Series, and I love to get lost in every one of the Dark Souls games, but I definitely think Dark Souls II is the best.

I’ve decided to finally join. My biggest hurdle honestly was coming up with a good username since as a smaller forum it has so many options!

Seems like a nice place, way more positive tone than most gaming communities on the internet too.


#1405

Hello!

I thought about joining a few times, because I love Waypoint and figured people here must be great too. Not sure I’ll be very active though, I’m quite busy with my move to another country.

Nice to meet you all! A few things about me: I (still) live in Germany, loved VNs and adventures growing up and am now finding my attention span too short to play many videogames. I like knitting and making things!

My pronouns are they/them.


#1406

Hey group!

I’m lase, overall games fan and aspiring developer. Just landed a job that will allow me to work remote, so I’m hoping this will open up more time for my development efforts. I haven’t been a member of a forum community for many years, but I’m excited to hang out with the folks here now that I’ll have some additional time on my hands.


#1407

Greetings Waypoint Forum Goers!

My name is Evan, I am 32, and I am a huge fan of the site. I am a video producer and have worked in the industry for a little while now but mostly as a freelancer.

I started out as a community contributor at Bitmob, did some work over GameTrailers.com, eventually ended up at Yahoo Esports, and now with that done I am back out doing all sorts of game related freelance content in the LA area.

I figure the best conversations about games are probably happening here so I wanted to make sure and stop in every now and then to see what’s going on.

Looking forward to some good discourse and happy new year to everyone!

  • Evan

Hey everybody! My name’s Caitlin. I’m here to hang out with cool people and talk about video games since I don’t get to do enough of that irl. Can’t wait to get to know you all and make some friends!
(She/her, they/them)


#1409

Hello. I joined back when the forum first launched, but haven’t been active. So I’m saying hello again. I’m occasionally active on the discord.

I’m a hobbyist game dev living in Seattle.


#1410

Hi forums.

I’m braveplan. I like good video game communities. Waypoint seems to attract fans I’d want to be friends with so I joined.


#1411

hi! im sunny, they\them pronouns, i like the summer and videogames, playing a lot of comp games right now and having difficulty focusing on one! o well

im super gay and have four girlfriends.


#1412

Hi I’m Miles, but I go by Spacelung in online game things. I’m a cartoonist and high school art teacher and I live in Providence, Rhode Island with my long-time girlfriend, where we spend most of our time playing soulsborne games and attempting to make art happen in the toxic wastes of hellworld 201X. You can use they/them pronouns for me because what even is a gender. I ended up here via following Giant Bomb, Idle Thumbs, and Friends at the Table and being very excited to see people from all those get together to make waypoint. The only other forum I’ve really been a part of, if you can even call it that, is posting on Jeremy Parish’s Talking Time forum like 4 times in 2012 or so. Waypoint seems to have a great community and I am excited to join it!

I read a lot of comics and manga (and also draw comics), and of course play an unhealthy amount of video games! I also love Godzilla, like, a lot.

My favorite game is a tie between Metroid Prime and all of the soulsbornes.

I am milescomics on tweet hell and I also have a poorly maintained art tumblr here.

Nice to meet you all! :stars:


#1413

Howdy gamers (and non-gamers), I’m Jake. I’ve never really hung out on forums before so this is kind of a learning experience, but I did do a little blogging over at Gameinformer many years ago and some of the stuff I wrote is uhhhhhhh kinda hard to go back to.

I’ve only recently started following Waypoint but it seems like a dope place with a wonderful community of folks, and I remember liking Patrick and Austin from their Giant Bomb days and Danielle from Polygon (s/o Pickles and Alan Brickman), so it made sense to follow what they were doing.

Feel free to talk to me about games and movies, I’m a film major so I might get insufferable but I love going deep on that shit. :v:


#1414

Hi I’m Joe, doctorfawkes on most game things. I work in web development & QA in Philadelphia. Long time lurker and big fan of the streams and Friends at the Table.

Currently playing Rimworld when I want to relax (I adore city-sims and work management games - recovering dwarf fortress player), and League of Legends when I feel like hating the whole cursed world. I’m a nerd for weird tech, useless hack projects and bizarre cyberpunk futures. I’m currently in way too many tabletop games, and running my first (an Apocalypse World thing with a few friends).

Feel free to @ me if you wanna talk about anything there, or Philly stuff.


#1415

Hi everyone,

I’m Ross, go by moonspeak on the internet. I’m generally pretty deeply petrified of online interaction, but I play a lot of games and it seems like a good idea to get involved in a community and put myself out there a little more.

Anyway, I’ve been following waypoint loosely since it started and it seems like a place that would attract mostly good people. I would love to find some folk to play games with! I’m pretty deep into Monster Hunter right now and I go back to PUBG for a round or two of solos every couple of weeks.


#1416

Hey! BigNoNo here, he / him, from Israel / Occupied Palestine. I’ve been reading Waypoint for a while now, and after weeks of staring at the open forum tab in my browser, I finally mustered to strength to start writing here.

I’ve loved video games since Small Times, but I came back to modern gaming in 2012 after about a ten-year hiatus to find what I believe is still the golden age of the medium. The things I’ve seen developers do in recent years have inspired me to start making game critique of my own, focusing on the unique ways that stories can be told by games.

But I can be fun too. I play some Overwatch (entirely too much, if I’m being honest).

Other than games, I’m also a huge fan of heavy metal, and have been a heavy metal musician since my early teens.
