    Hey everyone.

    I was reminiscing tonight about some of my favorite old websites from days long past.

    As luck would have it, GBA Temp is still alive & well. I’m so happy to see this.

    Anyway. I’m “Legend” or, at least, I was. I’ve changed my alias online many times over the years. It’s nice to meet all of you!

    I hope none of you mind, but I think I’ll hang out around here for a while again. So much has changed!

    It’s good to be back.

    Thanks for the welcomes! :)

    Currently I’m all about that Sony & PC life. I’ve more or less sworn off recent Nintendo consoles, but I am intrigued by the Switch — especially given the recent announcement of Smash (port? New? Who knows!)

    I just bought a new gaming PC and I have a PS4 + Vita (RIP).

    Yeah, it's all about the exclusives and what you enjoy playing. Just don't forget to put some Nintendo love in there.

    What are roms? :P
    Back in the days, it was... an interesting place. I was reading through some of my old posts last night. I tell ya, it's kind of embarrassing to see the way I used to communicate with people. I was very aggressive as a teenager, apparently!

    I remember there being a lot of silliness in the "Testing" forum, which basically was a general off-topic area if I'm not mistaken. There were some really, really talented people who frequented the forum -- one of which I was looking for an update on. Ultimately, he's what brought me back here. His name was @.TakaM, but I can't find any recent traces of him!

    This statement/sentiment should be preserved for posterity, to serve as a potential warning/advice for younger members. ;)

    Also: Hi!

    Wow you actually haven't posted in literally 10 years. That's amazing!

    I sure am! A little worse for wear, but I'm still kicking! It's been a long, winding road.


    Hello! Yes, agreed. Apparently I used to use GBATemp as something of an outlet. I wasn't really allowed to curse anywhere, so I used a lot of curse words on here. I also often would start my responses/posts like the whole conversation was bothersome. I was a pretty bizarre kid but I'd like to think that the "real world" has deburred me, so to speak.

    Man. I'll have to make a longwinded post about it all sometime. To be honest, it was a very boring 10 years in the grand scheme. Though I'd like to think I developed a lot, as a person!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Yeah, I wish there was some kind of a way for me to just... delete the old posts. Some of them are rather "cringey" as they say.

    I wouldn't worry about it. 10 years is such a long time. If anyone tries to make fun of you with the old posts they'd only be making a fool of themselves to be honest.

    Agreed! Although I guess I could have just... made a new account, if I was truly concerned about it all. :P

    Meh, the past is the past. We all (most of us, hopefully?) learn, grow, and evolve based on life experience.

    Real-talk, though... What have I missed in the last 10 years around here?

    Gbatemp doing more legit stuff, game reviews, news, e3 attendence etc. Twitch channel as well now.

    Still got the modding stuff going on, I guess you missed out on most of the wii, ds and 3ds stuff. Probably a good thing though as for a long time those parts of the forum were just awful.
