    Not a new new member (more of an old new member), but I should definitely post here and say hey! Love the new site, and I hope to get back in the swing of things!

    I am gaming as always (currently playing Secret of Mana co-op with my husband, as he has never played it before, amongst the 5 different games I'm in the middle of playing).

    Since the Sisters in Gaming podcast days, I've taken up a new craft - crochet - so I can make even more geeky, video game-related goodies!

    I probably should hop on this thread. I'm a newbie here.

    I was forwarded this site by a coworker a month or so ago, and I really enjoy the jive of it. I've been gaming since I was a wee one, plopping down in front of the tube to overthrow non-human monarchs, save universes, and clear haunted houses. Business as usual for the gaming world. :)

    In my free time, I write and serve as managing editor of an online (for now) literary journal - Literary Orphans. I also enjoy craft beer, and I'm looking into brewing myself a bit. IMDB killed my other trade of being a walking cinema encyclopedia.

    Lookin' forward with chatting with you all.

    Felt the need to add some sort of intense comic book onomatopoeia there.

    Hey guys.

    A quick hello from me. My friend Prime from DowntoforitX recommended this site.

    Just so everyone knows me a bit better; I'm 24 and I'm currently at Uni in Stirling. At the moment I'm trying to complete a few personal challenges from a few if my favourite older games.

    Current games I'm playing are Super Aleste (Trying to complete it on Wild mode with no continues), the Donkey Kong Country Series (My favourite series; I always play through them at the start of the year. Again, trying to do a 100%+ run with no continues) and the ever elusive 3 man run on Gain Ground with my friend Kyle.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone. All the best; if you have any questions or anything you want to talk about then feel free to contact me :)

    Hello Alan, welcome to Retroids! We hope you like it here and enjoy your time checking us out, contributing to our conversations, etc. Super Aleste is an incredible game. Totally reminds me of the Blazing Lasers series on TG16 (I think it was the same dev. team, if I'm not mistaken).

    Hope to see you around often. Take care!

    Welcome Alan! Good to have you here and looking forward to seeing you around!

    I haven't played the DKC games since SNES. Are you excited about the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze next month?

    Hello. I found this site by searching for "video game retro streaming sites". It's good to know there are still a good amount of retro fans out there. Happy to be a member here. I stream almost on a daily basis too. Hopefully I'll get to meet a lot of you eventually.

    Welcome DoctorCid! Looking forward to seeing some more people stream, it's always fun to pop in for a bit and watch. Also, if you're in the midwest area (or don't mind the trip), definitely look into the Midwest Gaming Classic coming up next month in Wisconsin! It's an awesome weekend of gaming and many members of Retroids make it out there

    Ah man. I would go to an event like that if I could, but I am living in Florida, ha. But thanks for the reply, and thanks for the invitation to the event. Meeting fellow gamers is definitely a desire of mine at any given chance.
