    Avatar: Squall's a nice character even if the game he was placed in is utter bullshit...somebody else had a Cloud Dissidia avatar when i made it

    Sig: Noticed it while working last Sunday, direct lift from the cover of "Scarlet" magazine and it seemed disturbing enough to make my sig.

    Username: Originally I was 'kermitfrog' - 'cos that's been my nickname since apprenticeship, but changed it to 'CannonFoddr' as it's the closest I can get to my Online gaming nickname ('CannonFodder' was already taken - even though that person hasn't been around for a VERY long time)

    Signature: Couldn't really decide on something 'CannonFoddr-ish' - but thought a collection of systems I've owed, plus what I use now, so that I don't have to keep repeating what I use if I post a problem

    Avatar: Was gonna use 'CannonFodder' titlescreen from the game - but really wanted something different so made one one

    Username: was playing a MMORPG back in the... 5th grade I think, and had to come up with a nickname for a few characters, so I wrote my name (Omer) and just 'punched' the keyboard, and one of the characters' (and my favorite) username was OmerMe.

    Pliskron was derived from the main character in Escape from New York (1981) Snake Plissken played by Kurt Russell. Could it have been John Carpenter's best film? Probably not. Still it's a great piece of 80's kitch.

    Mine is bloody obvious I suppose.

    I bought my Nintendo DS specifically for the game in question.

    I've used a variety of names online over the years, and a variety of avatars often geared more or less to the location.

    Some are well known others hardly so simply because there's nothing special about it.

    I just changed my avatar and sig a little bit ago today, and I like how they look, so I'll probably keep them for a while.
