What's in a name...?

And the answer to that is: plenty, obviously. For instance, my screen name on PixlBit, atrophycosine is the same as my PSN name, and my Xbox Live gamertag. However when I first started "blogging" on gaming websites it was 2005, Xbox Live had only been up for three years, my gamertag for regular Xbox titles was Idolator, and I had already been a forum member on Gamefaqs for a few years under the name tripleconsolegenius (but am now known as forcedbandage which also happens to be my Steam account name).

Also, along with many other refugees from 1up, I've come here hoping to recapture some of that spirit of community that was shared back there (where my screen name was machiavelliangamer, by the way)

What I'm trying to say is that a decade ago, we were all trying to find ourselves as gamers in a burgeoning internet community, and for the most part, many of us succeeded. However trying to find my friends in a now overwhelming internet community has become something of a hassle. Not that I won't make the effort, mind you.

So if you know or knew me from any of these websites that we've all frequented over the past 15 or so years, please feel free to look me up here, or there, or add me to your network, or throw me a friend request. We're all in it together, and we need to be there during feast and famine...

I didn't know every last 1upper (I wasn't there from the very beginning) but I'm always willing to make new friends!

I don't know what's a name but a MAN is a miserable little pile of secrets! Enough talk,have at thee!
