Ok, so really my wife would probably be mad if I made that last part true, but with the recent influx of new members to the site, we want to invite you to announce who you are. Now since this is fairly new, let's open it to everyone.

Here is the only rules to this one:
1) Don't post more than once in the thread (let's keep it small)
2) Don't be offended if your 2nd or 3rd post in this thread get deleted, start your own dang thread.
3) Nothing too revealing as we do have families and kids who watch these sites.
4) I will work to get this sticky so you can always keep up to date.

Something to get you started (10 questions and then a request)

1) Name
2) Location
3) Current fave game
4) All time Fave Game
5) Systems owned
6) Real life hobbies/interests
7) Family
8 ) What brought you here
9) Explain who your avatar is or where your sig came from.
10) Favorite Movie

1) NiteMare409 = Matthew
2) Arizona
3) Soldner/Tiger Woods 2004
4) Dungeon Siege
5) Xbox, PC, PS2, N64, SNES, NES, Sega Genesis
6) Reading and baseball
7) Divorced (with 2 sons) and now married again with 1 step daughter and 1 daughter.
8 )Did a search for Gamevoice profiles and found the site. Haven't left since.
9) Avatar = Gambit (huge comic book fan) Sig = Jesse "the Body" Ventura which is what I look like with head shaved.
10) Difficult to pick one but I would say: X-Men

Now the request: Find a way to link to the person before you.

Hmmm, let's see then:

1) Name:
Shane AKA "FugiTive"

2) Location:
Perth, Western Australia (No, there's no Kangaroo's in the backyards over here either)

3) Current Fav Game:
Doom 3

4) All Time Fav Game:
Hmmm, would have to probably be Mafia, but then closely followed by Anachronox

5) Systems owned:
PC, Laptop....umm....I used to have a '64 Very Happy
In the PC I've got a 2Ghz P4, 400mhz fsb, Leadtek GF4Ti 4200 (64mb), 1024mb of DDR 266, 8X DVD Burner + CD Burner + DVD Rom, SB Live, 20gb hdd (as my system drive), AND............ 2 * 200GB Western Digital HDD's with 8mb of cache in a Raid 0 configuration.

In the Laptop I've got a Centrino 1.5, 512mb of ram, 40 gb hdd, 64mb GF FX go 5200, realtek audio, wireless + wired lan, dvdrom/cdrw combo, + firewire, usb2, infra red, and all the other bits and bobs you'd expect with a laptop

6) Real Life hobbies/interests:
Photography, gaming, ice skating, Sci-Fi (Go Stargate SG1!!! And more recently, Stargate Atlantis :D), movies and tv, travelling, reading, music. I think that will do for now...

7)Family:
I'm currently living with my Mum who patiently puts up with my whilst I'm studying at uni. I've also got a brother who's about to get married soon, but he moved out a fairly long time ago Razz

Cool What brought you here:
Hehe, I'm oooooooolllllllllddddddd school - I got GV for my birthday many years ago and used to hang around the GV forums a bit. Seeing Smaug's signature I decided to have a look at this "gamevoice club". Originally I just joined the ICQ contact list, but later I decided to come and check out the forums. I haven't looked back since.

9) Explain what your avatar is or where your sig came from:
My avatar is a pic of the Grim Reaper. I was in a rather grim mood one day so decided to set that as my buddy icon. It's kinda grown on me, so slowly it's made its way as my avatar in the various forums I frequent.
My sig - well... It's an Einstein quote (quite obviously) that I think pretty much hits the nail on the head when it comes to our society.

10) Favourite Movie:
The Shawshank Redemption.
But then there's been so many other good movies that I loved - The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Matrix Trilogy,


My link to the last person's post? Well, ROM and I both live in Australia Smile
(I'm expecting Donk to post next so he can steal my link Razz *hits Donk on the head*)

Ahh I guess it should be my turn now...

1. Darke. Otherwise known as Alex.

2. The Land the Gods Forgot: New Jersey

3. City of Heroes. Doom3 takes a close second.

4. So many. I'd have to say the Jedi Knight series. COH may be a contender though...:)

5. PC( P43.0 ghz, 9800XT, 1gbram, SBAUD), Commodore 128/64/Vic 20, Atari 2600 (the start of it all)

6. Computer Games, MMOG's, RPGS, Reading/Writing (Sci Fi/Fantasy/Horror,Comics), Hiking & Camping,, Tracking, Martial Arts, History, New Age(Old Age), all things Tolkien.

7. Happily married to Lighte.(Jaime)

8. Posted on Microsoft's GV forum for help when somone named 'Smaug replied with an answer and a link here. Intrigued by the name and the motive, I checked it out. Lurked for a year or two and liked what I saw. Left the shadows. The rest is history.

9. The avatar is from my COH character Darke One. .As for the sig, I forgot who said it, but it reflects part of my philosophy of life. (Live becasue death can come at any time)

10. Hands down, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. After that, The Crow followed by Terminator 2.

The Link? Well on those rare occasions I would pop into the GCC chat room, the one person I would have to chat with was always Triax, who was usually up way to late in his corner of the world. Smile

2) Location

Fort Wayne, IN

3) Current fave game

Everquest and Doom 3

4) All time Fave Game

Legend of Zelda

5) Systems owned

Oh jeez..I've been gaming for a while. So, in a not so correct order - Pong (with retractable paddles), atari 2600, atari 5200, intellivision, nintendo, n64, sega genesis, playstation, xbox, pc, and I had a gamecube for a little while.

8 ) What brought you here

When i bought a Game voice along time ago - the only thing was that I didn't have anyone to talk to. Hooked up with a couple of people from the ms gv site and would like to think that I helped create one of the best communities on the web today.

9) Explain who your avatar is or where your sig came from.

uh, I just changed my avatar to Eric Cartman from south park for a lack of a better one. No real reason other than I laugh my butt off watching south park.

edit: I forgot about to the link the person before;

Link to Darke: Darke and I played Jedi Academy and Star Wars Galaxies together.
