    Hi, i'm new here, I would like to be adressed by Ken if possible. (unless my screen name is already enough) I'm 24 years old, also from New York, and looking for friends. I also have Wii U, 3DS, Playstation 3, Playstation vita/psp, and Nvidia shield consoles. I also have a pc, really a laptop but can't use it very much due to overheat issues i have to get fixed (if i can afford it.) Fan works when it wants to bud doesn't help much since is too hot to even touch bare handed. I hope I'm not going on too much, or wasting my time writing this.

    What I should say first is I'm nervous as I write this very second. I don't have many friends, realistic ones to interact with that isn't online I mean in other words, in real life or "IRL" I am lonely most of the time and do get bored a lot, it puts me to sleep. So I came here hoping for a change for the better. I'm not super tech savy smart like most other people are who can code homebrew programs or create mod hacks for consoles or games but I do know how to use a Game genie, action replay and gameshark, oops those were in the past... Those were the fun days of hacking. I guess i like finding stuff i want. Guess i could talk about this at another time. I'm making this too long.

    Anyway, some notes about me, i hope are reading. I have been diagnose with aspergers syndrome disorder, since 11 if i can remember. Probably at a earlier age by the way my mom speaks about it. So if anyone would be kind enough to help me if i made mistakes, messed something up, disrupt, disregard, disrespect or offended something or someone, I would appreciate it. I will try my best to get along, even with my easy frustration, depression, or other mentality unstable problems, I will try to understand and be responsible. Sorry if this is long. I wanted to make a proper introduction.

    I been close observer for this site gbatemp for various reasons. One main one was The homebrew and hacks, the wide variety of other creative, useful and satisfying things (just what i was looking for) such as emulators on my wii and psp back in 2009. The usefulnes and satisfaction of using the console beyond is intentioned limits puts smiles on my face, to see things like playing a nintendo game with a playstation controller entertains me in hopes of seeing more wacky possible combos.

    Second reason was just looking forward to new things whe I least expect it, just to say stuff like "Oh snap, I like this, Oh gosh, That's amazing. I want to try that out is so good." I remember when back in 2009 when my wii eject button broke and i couldn't get the disc out. I thought i was stuck playing the same game until i got it fixed. Then I found a homebrew that can eject the disc without the button, it saved me so much trouble. (though it would be easier and less time consuming to just use the button) but i didn'thave to pay for repairs or replacement which could been expensiveby the way. (I'm not financialy well) That what I mean by useful.

    The reason I decided to join was watching the communication between everyone. Is very supportive. I hope I would be supported if someone sees I need some of it. I don't really feel useful as of now being I'm no super hard code programmer like most here are but hope I can be acknowledge or just noticed by someone, maybe make some friends and chat, have fun... maybe get some answers for some of my console problems or homebrew, who knows. Just some ideas.

    Sorry this is long, had lot I wanted to make sure it was out there, if anyone has questions for me, I can answer them. So please don't be afraid or scared or nervous of me, I just wanna be comfortable among others with common similar interest. Thank you.

    WOW this is a wall of text. First and foremost, welcome to GBATemp! NOW!
    If you want to be called Ken, you should have probably put some indication in your username or something like that. I mean, I can call you Ken here, but outside of this, nobody will know :P
    Nice collection of systems! Which is your favourite? And what are your favourite games for each of them??
    Ah man, no need to be nervous. In the time I've been here, I've seen some fantastic people (even if I'm not the most interactive person lol). If you treat the people here well, you'll usually get the same respect back. Unless they're arses or trolls, but who cares about those people anyway? ;3 You don't need to be particularly savvy, but make sure you read the stickies and make use of the search function to avoid agitating people by asking something that's already been answered!
    Disabilities suck, bleh. If you get easily frustrated, and feel you've overstepped a mark, just take a step back. After you've took a breather, go back and apologise. You'd be surprised how much people are willing to understand if you take the time to apologise for your actions and explain the circumstances.
    You should look into some of the interesting things you can do with a 3DS nowadays, you'll probably have some fun and get a little satisfaction from it :3
    If you want people to talk to, check out some threads in General Off-Topic, or the IRC Chat. You might find it easier with starting conversations through those than other places.
    lol long reply too.

    Hope you enjoy it here <3 Don't be put off if you find the odd nasty member, there's a lot of fantastic people here :3

    Wow, someone can read and reply fast. I think my heart is feeling hot. Also, sorry about the name thing, I didn't think of that but good point. Too nervous? Maybe.

    Also about the console favorite types, I like playing them all, I like the nintendo ones best cause of the ease of accessibility of is functions, and games are easy to learn, there also fun as they should be and was back in 1985 when nintendo first started saving the video game industry. But i try to keep a equal balance of all consoles and games as open minded as possuble. regardless of the big time review people out there. I like my wii u and 3DS, just i wish i had people to play it with, then maybe it can be more fun than it sounds like I'm making it with this comment.

    Did i miss a question? i need to check. I didn't expect to say so much now that i saw the huge post but just made sure i had put myself out there best i can.

    Don't worry about it!~ I'm basically the same, around 95% of my friends are online, and maybe half of those on this site. Probably because I seem to have some form of social anxiety, yet somehow online that isn't a problem. For example: I'm talking to someone right now and it's fine! :D

    Anyways, welcome!~ :)

    Hi @Sonic Angel Knight / Ken

    Welcome to gbatemp. I'm aspie too. And I work with people with autism and aspergers. Communication online has its own unique challenges compared to communicating face to face. There is a lot of friendly and understanding people here but there are also some who are not so kind and sensitive to others. Feel free to send me a private message if you feel lost at any point here :)

    My ribbons are for post count. You get new ribbons at certain milestones. Contributors are a lil special in that they give content for the site. Not soo sure what Chary does since I pay little attention (lol sorry bab) but I think they include review writing etc

    You're a newcomer until you hit a post count of 100. Shouldn't be too long, as long as you're active ^^

    Welcome to the forum! Remember to read the rules and don't be afraid to ask anything :D

    I see now, so keep posting content will meet new milestones and new titles. Just like tales of abyss on 3ds lol. I hope i have enough to say to meet any title request changes.

    Also i'll be sure to keep you in mind masher. It won't be too hard to forget if i see that donkey kong banana birthdah cake picture in post to remind me, unless someone else had DK i may get confused. (I'll have to add ken to my name change somehow)

    I think if you press the Report button in your own profile and enter something like "Please change my user name to Ken" then a moderator can change your name. I don't plan on changing my photo any time soon as I love DK and he looks so happy with his banana cake!

    I just noticed about me page in my user settings, i probably should have added this stuff there first. well i will just cut some stuff and add it later to keep it short and more attractive. (I mean appealingfor people to wanna read.) I am surprise that people read that much, though i feel bad that it was a lot. Also i'm feeling lot happier than when i first decided to join and posted this a hour ago. :)

    You don't need to feel bad or cut anything out. It's not like face to face where people can get bored or annoyed if you talk too much. When it's written down people can read as much or as little as they want :)

    Edit - oh and I'm glad you're feeling calmer now :D

    I know, i still wanna make it appealing for people to read, if people dont read it all then they dont understand as much which would save more troubles in future than not knowing. I guess it shows i have problems and complexity presenting myself as something people will wanna accept into their life or social circle. Sorry, im used to hearing negative comments a lot since elementary school that hasent stop in the lasf 20 years of my life i dunno.

    People will get to know you over time. Try not to worry or over think it. Your introduction was great and you can share more about yourself over time. You could come and have a look in some of the off topic forums to chat more with other members.

    Also, regarding post count, posts in the Edge of the Forum and Introductions don't count toward your post count.
