Intro: Destiny 2 Player

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone!

 

My name is Adam, and I'm a 26 year old technician/machine operator at an optics manufacturer. I've two pets (a dog named Archie and a lizard named Roscoe), and gaming is pretty much my main hobby. I've been playing Destiny 2 on PC since launch, and while I did take a healthy break in between the previous DLC and the current one, I'm back in and really eager to finally be part of a group that I can consistently raid with. As is, the guild I've been a part of is part of another online community that I've been active in for awhile, but their PC guild has shrunk to maybe getting one raid a week together. 

 

So, thanks to the suggestion of @Estarriol, I've found my way here! I've actually been in a few D2 raids with you all to fill a spot so far, so you may recognize me from there.

 Yay! So glad you decided to apply! 

 

We have a tradition of asking new people ridiculous questions, so I'll start us off. 

 

What's your favorite smell? 

What are you proud of but never get a chance to talk about? 

Would you rather have bionic arms or bionic legs?

Welcome to the forums! Glad to have you!

 

So any other hobbies/interests besides gaming?

What other games have you played recently or just highly enjoyed?

 

And now some rapid fire questions...

Pancakes or waffles?

Tacos or Burritos?

Coffee or tea?

AMD or Nvidia?

Street Fighter or Mortal Combat?

East Coast or West Coast?

Traditional or boneless wings?

Favorite smell's a tough one, but I'm gonna pick probably the weirdest/divisive one jumping to mind and say that chlorine-heavy pool smell. Runners up are vanilla ice cream, fresh chocolate chip cookies, and that musty smell outside after it rains.

 

Pride's another tough one, I had to think about this one for a minute. I'd have to say I'm proud of the care that I've given my pets, both Archie and Roscoe are awesome animals. If it wasn't for them, it would be the sheer number of mounts I've collected in WoW, haha. I'm going to very close to getting the 400 mount achievement that's getting added in the next expansion when that comes out in August, right off the bat.

 

...and absolutely bionic legs for that last one. It may be because I'm envisioning outright robotic replacements, but I very much enjoy having both of my arms/hands the way that they are. Also, running super fast and jumping super far sounds like the most fun ever.

Thank you!

 

Other hobbies would include caring for my pets, and more recently trying new beer that I haven't had before. My city and the area around it is absolutely littered with small breweries and craft beer, and it has been a phenomenal way to get out and experience new places. Oh, and I absolutely love movies. Film analysis videos have been a weakness of mine, lately.

 

As far as other games go, I think I'm close to beating the Witcher 3? Where I'm at very much feels like endgame territory, story-wise. I also played through Pit People recently, and I would very much encourage anyone who hasn't played that game to marathon through everything The Behemoth has made and cap it off with that. You'll thank me through tears of laughter, I promise. ALSO also I've been playing WoW semi-casually for awhile. My guild has never pushed into mythic territory for lack of a consistent serious roster, but we always finish heroic mode and get the meta achievement mount for each tier before the next one comes out.

 

And now, rapid-fire answers!

 

-Pancakes, waffles are also great though

-Tacos, burritos are again also great

-Coffee

-haven't sampled both to the extent to have an informed opinion, probably gonna buy Nvidia next based off of a recommendation

-Street Fighter for better goofy characters, but love that MK theme song

-East Coast but haven't tried the West, really just let me live near trees and I'm good

-traditional, but probably eat more boneless because they're a guilty pleasure

The only people I've ever met that would say this were competitive swimmers, whether it was club, high school, or college. I'm going to take a wild guess that you swam competitively at some point because that smell is definitely an acquired one!

Swing and a miss one that one, Grieve, but I did absolutely love swimming as a little kid. Especially when my folks and I would travel somewhere, I was always psyched to come by that smell when we got to our hotel.

 

So you're correct on the acquired smell, because that is one that definitely brings back a few memories.

Hello potential new friend! I was on vacation for the last 9 days so I'm getting to your thread a little late.

One of the best games I've ever played. Also, you might be finishing the vanilla story, but there's a whole other world of DLC content - Blood & Wine is absolutely 100% worth buying.

Don't leave us hanging, what city?

I actually have finished the main story since making that post, and bought the DLC immediately afterwards.

 

And to answer your second question: Rochester, NY!
