Heya! I’m Tyson, or Flammarion on the internet. I’m Australian, 27, he/him, and I ended up here after three of the podcasts I listened to fell in a blender and Waypoint emerged. Then like two years after that I bothered to make a forum account :sweat_smile:

Hi, I’m a 1up/EGM kid. Listened to RebelFM since day one. I started listening to Waypoint last year and it’s one of the very few podcasts that has hosts who talk about games in a way that engages me. I’m joining back up on online communities since I finally got a new PC.

Hello fellow humans, I’m Purrito aka ElleTee. Black, 27, science teacher, very gay lesbian, she/they.

I’m not big on social media and haven’t made online friends since my middle school Runescape days, but hoping to change that. If you’re interested in any sort of SFF ranging from books, games, mechs, or magical girls, I’d love to hear from you!


Hi, I’m Jay, he/him or they/them. I’m a 28 year old queer non-binary person from the UK and got into Waypoint in late 2017 via youtube/twitch streams. I’ve been vaguely on the forum for a few months now and figured I should do myself an introduce. I’m also vashnoi on twitter.

Right now I’m really enjoying Waypoint’s incipient podcast empire (marry me, Lore Reasons), but Waypoints and the non-gaming media discussions have ended up being my faves because they have led me to watch really cool things I would never have picked up on my own.

In terms of games, I play on PC and enjoy puzzle games, tactics games (shout out to XCOM/2 and Into the Breach) and anything with wild vibrant worlds and/or an interesting story. I’m curious about dipping a toe into multiplayer again in a non-toxic community maybe?

Outside of games, I like narrative podcasts (current fave is The Magnus Archives, I’m also a fan of Friends at the Table, though not caught up), current sci-fi and fantasy fiction (the queerer the better), the occasional romance novel, and Star Trek Discovery.

I’m Axel, a Canadian drawn to Austin’s earnest politics and deep love of mecha. I make game-type-things here and there but only as a hobby.

I’ve been minimizing my time online, but I still have a big soft-spot for Waypoint.

Howdy, y’all!

Name’s Louie. He/Him, Late 20’s, Austinite, Nocturnal, Night Auditor.

Life’s kept me plenty of busy and gaming has practically fallen to the wayside for me from a daily presence to a hobby when/where I can. Only been keeping up w/ console games for the last 5 years given I’ve never upgraded past my 9-y/o laptop, but as my line of work leaves me w/ vast swaths of limited-yet-open time while on call, I’ve been listening to more podcasts and reading all that I can, both in print and now, in forums.

Some brief blurbs:

  • Username is lovingly ripped from Dr. McNinja, which I still need to go back and finish one of these days.
  • Technically met George W. Bush when he visited my elementary school back when he was Gov. of Texas, so per the Kingdom Hearts rules of time-travel, I could theoretically go back and prevent the 2000 election by way of a rousing speech from the lips of a 6-y/o me.
  • tumblr can eat it, I guess.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have inter-library loan requests I need to complete. Many thanks, love y’all.

Hey all, my name’s Mo. He/Him, 21, I’m sure like everyone else, I love movies, tv, and games.

I’ve played games all my life, and they’re the one thing that I feel I can take control of in life. I’m not a very social person, but I would love to have some people to casually play multiplayer games with, and Waypoint is awesome for being super inclusive.

Hi, I’m Phil from Canada. Was a big fan of Patrick back as giantbomb, though I stopped listening to the bombcast around the time he left the site. I got caught back up a few years later and became a fan of Austin too; though he left soon after time too. Naturally, I’ve been following waypoint since it’s inception.

I have a horrible addiction to Slay the Spire

Hello there!

I’m Milan, a narrative designer / creative producer in Cologne, Germany. I used to be very much into film and academia but when the opportunity presented itself, founded a studio with a bunch of friends. We’re doing okay :slight_smile:

I came to Waypoint via Idle Thumbs / Idle Weekend / Danielle and Rob and Waypoint is pretty much the only “mainstream” media outlet about games I can respect now that Idle Thumbs is no more. I’ve listened to nearly every single podcast episode in the last two years and derive great joy and introspective from them.

I’m not really into forums these days (time shortage) but Waypoint is the only community I can imagine discussing games with so here I am ¯_(ツ)_/¯
