I'm Edge, formerly known as Xephon around these here parts.

 

I'm Northern Irish much like Mr. Smurph (I'm from Belfast), but I live on the South Coast of England now. It's very sunny here most of the time.

 

I like lots of consoles (I have 8!), but I fell hardest for the PlayStation 2.

 

Interesting fact: I was on a bus that got hi-jacked in Belfast. I lived to tell the tale.

I am Tachikoma, the bloke who set this place up.

 

26, engaged, got a toddler called George, no cats.

 

Live in Cwmbran, South Wales, leaky roof.

 

Own lots of consoles, more than any man really needs, hundreds of games, never have the time to play on them.

 

Interesting fact: I was one of the first people in the UK to drive a Corsa (outside of their company, reviewers, etc)

Guest wholehole

I'm wholehole, I don't have a whole lot else to do than post on here while i'm supposed to be working. I love it.

 

25, 2 cats, 3 Kittens, 1 Dog & 1 Bearded Dragon.

 

I'm a resident of Kettering, pretty much slap bang in the middle of the UK. I have to drive for at least an hour to get to the seaside.

 

I've got lots of computery/console-y stuff, I wouldn't call it a collection though as it has no focus. It's just a load of stuff i've bought cheap from places.

 

Interesting fact: I can't touch my toes due to a broken back. Seriously.

Engaged (Married in 9 weeks .. umm yay me I guess.)

 

I have a hmaster called Cammy (Cammy the Hammy get it?)

 

I've got a PS2 and a Gamecube right now but once the wedding things out of the way I'll be getting me a 360, woot etc.

 

Interesting fact: I was born dead. The local vicar once told me that God had brought me back to do something important. I guess playing Oblivion 'till my eyes go funny is pretty important.

I'm Shufty, 20 and finishing up my degree at Bradford Uni in video games design (anyone know about Finite State Machines and C# by the way?). Looking forward to finishing my degree as I am fed up with it all and need a break (yes I know soon enough I will wish I was back at uni) as this year has not been an entirely happy one for me.

Been gaming since I was 4/5 when my parents bought me and my brother an amiga 500, been hooked ever since. Don't have much time for games at the moment because of all the coursework I have to do but will catch up in about a month :-D

 

Interesting fact: I have pissed in the same toilets as the old bassist from Queens of the Stone Age immediately after he'd been in.

What ya doing? Formal Language Translation?

 

Hi I'm Steve the Dark Knight, 22 and studying Computer Science at Salford University, and I'm in the middle of writing a 15,000 word dissertation. Should graduate in July, and I think that would technically make me a scientist. I'm looking forward to finishing so I can get around to playing Guitar Hero again.

 

Interesting Fact: On a night out I got mistaken for someone from Home & Away, dunno who though.

I'm Darthjim.

 

28 years young (ish), married for 9 years, living in Cumbria and utterly, completely obsessed with Turrican and anything else Amiga related. I work as a designer and illustrator.

 

When not gaming I'm usually found painting, drawing and writing. Occasionally I manage to produce something that isn't pap. Oh, and I'm a Mac evangelist, but you'll get used to it.

I'm pharmacist10 aka Ben (not to be confused with the other Ben, who knows a lot more about games than me)

I am 31 (just) and live in Bedford, chav capital of the UK.

I work as a pharmacy dispenser and was one of the first people in Britain to taste check the flavoured Durex condoms before they were released.

I have been gaming since the days of the C64 and am usually found to be playing RPGs.

Oh and in case you are wondering, the fruit ones taste a bit sickly, but the mint was OK. Still wouldn't want to inflict them on anyone else though!

I'm doing some AI coursework, this one works in real time so finite state machines are required. Unfortunately I can't get the AI to switch between FSMs, I know I need it to return something but I can't remember what (I've had this problem before) and return null; doesn't work.

 

Interesting Fact #2: I am friends with the guy who did the video for Seth Lakeman's latest single 'White Hare'

Hi I'm Carrie, I've been playing games since my older brother got the little rubber keyed spectrum many many moons ago.

 

I've got a jack russell called Snaggle and I've been using various versions of her name in games since I brought her home 12 years ago.

 

She's my little bearded lady :-)

I think revealing point 2. whilst attempting to resolve point 1. could be the issue.
