Name - Vin
Located - Sydney, Australia (currently in Canberra)
For a living I - am an Armament Engineer
Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Reading / Audio Books. Every moment I spend not gaming/learning about games and hardware, I'm reading.
Gaming Historical facts - I've owned most game platforms and handhelds since the PSX (skipped the WII U and Xbox One), and I've always had a decent gaming PC. I love all kinds of games. Achievements? Well, I'm not a completionist, or particularly skilled, but I'm definitely a power gamer. I've beaten almost every RPG I've ever played with the absolute highest gear, magic, etc possible (All final weapons in FF? check, most powerful demons/personas in SMT games? check, All legendary Pokemon? Check. etc :smile:)
Firm believer that - Gaming is capable of more than any other medium, and noone should put boundaries on what games can be (gaming doesn't have to be all about gameplay, or graphics, or whatever, games can be anything). People who say a "walking simulator" isn't a game, for example, make me both angry and sad.
Champion of - Justice. (I'm not that great at games TBH, but I find ways to beat most games on the highest difficulty by finding strong builds etc - so I guess you can say I'm a good optimiser?)
PSN - vnel (GOD, when will they let us change these?)

For a living (kinda) I do IT at local recycling centre.
Non-gaming Hobby: I guess that would be movies, it's a long time passion just like games. Absolute favorite film would be Taxi Driver and ofcourse Scorsese is my all time favorite director. From music I most enjoy tunes by Buckethead (as you can see in my avatar), such an insane amount of music in all shapes and sizes.
Gaming Historical facts: I feel like I could write a ton on this subject, but i'll try to keep it short. I started gaming at age of 5 with NES. few years after that I got C64, Amiga 500, then came SNES and 386 PC I think. N64, Pentium and PS1 followed until I upgraded my PC.Tried Xbox a bit and got my first handheld ever Nintendo DS, again upgrading PC. Bought used PS3 from my friend and first time ever in my life I have PC that I can play the newest games. Bought everything new just last december. It's not high end but decent. I still have most love for Nintendo and Wii U is the most interesting of current consoles (since I have a PC, would be PS4 otherwise.)
Firm believer that a little kindness goes a long way.
Champion of giving orders to my friends in multiplayer games =P

My username is a long story about War, Betrayal, Basement MMOs, Anime Chatrooms, and some gold I was never paid. The skinny is my friend asked me to betray my guild for a lot of gold, he never paid me. I then owned up to my role in guild's downfall through an Alt, kept the name and got the nickname Pali-Kun.

@Mango I beat disk one then he moved to North Carolina. Sometimes I scroll past it in the store and think I should finish you. First I need to Complete Ni No Kuni and DQ VIII
@Stormcrownn dude I challenge you to an Astrophysics discussion!
Specifically do you ever get super melancholy thinking about how there's parts of this universe that are expanding away from us faster than we'll ever be able to reach them, then transition into an existential crisis?
@Pali-Kun I totally understand, my list of shame is growing by the day.
FF7 was probably the first game I had an emotional response to so I can't imagine putting it down. Whenever I hear the opening music I just stop and have a good 10-20 min flashback of the goodtimes I had with that game
