Huh, I remember you, or at least your avatar. Welcome back.
Hello and welcome to the forums. Do enjoy your stay!Hello everyone, new person here... This seems like a cool community based on the streams I've watched over the last year so I thought I'd finally join and generally make everything slightly worse
1) I don't really have a consistent 'online identity' or handle or so Stewcumber because my name is Stewart and I like cucumber and its dumb and I use it on a couple of forums.
2) I started watching Zero Punctuation around 2009, before it was on youtube, and then I switched to youtube when it appeared on there, but had no idea of what the wider The Escapist was despite literally going to the website for a couple of years, and hearing "HA!" at the beginning of a decade's worth of youtube videos. Don't take it personally because I also managed to view Youtube for a decade before subscribing to my first channel. But about a year ago I started listening to escapist podcasts whilst working at home and I particularly enjoy Breakout and Slightly Something Else. And Adventure is Nigh was great.
3) I'm not really into TV and movies so my favourite current games are Cities Skylines and Kerbal Space Program. I enjoyed games like Mafia 1, Mass Effect 1, GTA San Andreas. 2000s games I guess. I'm also a retrogamer and have early 90s DOS PCs to play DOOM.
4) I am struggling to find words to say how uncool I am so I guess the coolest fact is that I have a cat called Fernley who is much cooler than I am.
5) I don't really know what The Escapist V2 is or V1 for that matter!
Neat, welcome back, don't forget to go to the thread about getting a legacy tag.Hi everyone. Haven't been in here for years (about 6 I think). The world has changed. I've changed. This website has changed.
Or do, because I don't think Nick is handing out badges anymore.Neat, welcome back, don't forget to go to the thread about getting a legacy tag.

Welcome to the forums. Enjoy your stay!Hello Escapists! New member here and here are my answers to the introductory questionnaire:
1. What's the story behind your username - No particular reason, I just enjoyed Netlifx's Beef and went with Joji...
2. When did you start following The Escapist - I often watch Zero Punctuation on YT, but I'm not sure what was the year when I watched it for the first time. 2018, maybe
3. Favorite video games, shows, movies, etc - Love Darkest Dungeon, Heros of Might and Magic 3, Disgaea, the new XCOMs, Spelunky, etc. As for movies and TV shows, GoT, Better Call Saul, Blade Runner, Clockwork Orange, Blackadder, The Office (in no particular order, I'm only riffing here )
4. Any cool facts we should know about you - I sometimes get up an hour earlier before work so I can play whatever game I'm obsessing about at that moment (this is far from a cool fact, I'm aware...)
5. Any feedback or comments about The Escapist V2 - Not sure what to answer here lol
Hey, I remember you, or at least your username. Welcome back.An old and possibly wild forum user appears!
Howdy folks, it's been a while, I heard the forums were back and figured I would take a look! I love a lot of games etc, but Metroid is one of the big ones. A lot has happened in the last few years, I've got back into Warhammer 40k (Kill Team specifically, Ork player, always has been since 3rd ed 40k, stopped at 6th ed for those curious.) which has been fun, got engaged, no longer work a night job and much more.
1. What's the story behind your username?
I really like Metroid, and it's a play on words about what Samus is, or at least was until more games came out. That's pretty much it.
2. When did you start following The Escapist?
2009, It's been a while, and I just found out the forums were back!
3. Favorite video games, shows, movies, etc?
Metroid, XCOM, The Batman Arkham games, lots of fighting games (I'm not good that them) and lots more. Alien & Aliens are two of my favorite movies, and I love my super hero stuff too.
4. Any cool facts we should know about you?
I'm one of the only people in the world to have ever played the Metal Gear Solid Boardgame that got cancelled, sad to say, it was fun too.
5. Any feedback or comments about The Escapist V2?
I only just got here, so not at this stage other then I'm glad to see the place return with a new coat of paint
Yeah, and stuff works too, which wasn't always a given back in v1. Anyway, it's basically a tight knit group of veterans too stubborn to leave now. Sort of small town vibes. Smaller and slower moving than in the (g)olden days, but everyone knows everyone and what everyone's deal is.Thanks! Things certainly look a lot different here, but I look forward to having a gander and maybe chatting with people.
Actually we do have a handful of new people as well. I'm actually surprised, but there's gotta be at least half a dozen that have joined in the last year or so and become regulars.Yeah, and stuff works too, which wasn't always a given back in v1.
