    Hello from the South Coast of England!
    I've been sniffing around gbatemp since the start of wii homebrew. I recently decided to be less of an info leech so here I am! I owe so much to to the wii and PSP scenes - Aside from everything else, the massive range of emulators have allowed me to play just about any game I can remember (or have on tape, in the loft). This has rejuvenated my interest in rom hacking/patching and allowed me to prove to friends that 'they don't make 'em like they used to' lol

    Consoles/Computers that have stolen my life away:
    • BBC (at school)
    • Acorn (at school)
    • ZX Spectrum 128k +2
    • Nintendo Gameboy (most blisters award)
    • Sega Master System 2
    • Sega Mega Drive 2
    • Sony Playstation
    • PC - 667mz processor, 128mb ram, 14gb hard drive (followed by a long line of shitty PCs.)
    • Sony Playstation 2 (lol i found it in a supermarket car park)
    • Nintendo Wii
    • Sony PSP (1000)
    • Xbox 360
    ...and plenty of time spent on mates C64, Amstrad, NES, SNES, N64, Lynx, Jaguar, GBA, Saturn, XBOX etc.
    My other obsessions include pinball (real and emulated), djing, beer and generally pissing around with electronic equipment. So there it is.

    [edit] I fail at code but succeed at making pretty buttons, sprites and graphics. If you have homebrew like grand theftendo, up your sleeve then i'm your man.

    TL;DR - [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Aww shucks!
    Thank you people. At a risk of sounding 'stalky' I've gotten to know most of you posters and your tastes through reading gbatemp 3 times a day for the last 3 years.
    So what did everyone think about the end of Chilean Big Brother? Did anyone pick the winner?

    Notice: As I got so many (well appreciated) replies already, I should mention that if I post between 23:00 and 06:00 (GMT) then I'm probably drunk. This disclaimer means you shouldn't take any offence if I 'have a go' between those hours. Also, to the mods: A stern warning works fine. Don't make me start again in a few months! [​IMG]

    P.S. Here's the game that I first got blisters from

    Judging from your IRL pic you're definitely the person to hit on when drunk. =D

    lolwut? don't hate coz' i'm a six inch yellow vw beetle transformer.

    Seriously though, Another World's post about that Blade Buster NES homebrew (the homepage is google translate lulzy as ever), sorta kicked me up the ass and reminded me how much I will always love every games console I have ever played on. It has really put me into a good mood which I am trying to maintain indefinitely...

    Can't be as bad as some of the sigs I've used elsewhere.

    I made a big pixelated version as well, but don't think I saved it since it was easy to make.
