Hi. I'm Dan, an admin in the forums. Come down and say things to us. You'll float, too.

"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing and gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.

For that, and for leading me to this awesome community, I thank him.

So yeah... First time in a while I've been doin' The Front Page thing. Actually reading comments and full articles, instead of just gazing and skimming through stuff. Why? Because we don't have Forums, apparently.

I'm sure the bug will be worked out by the site doctors and magicians shortly. But yeah... coming out of the basement feels strange. I feel like I should reintroduce myself, though I didn't really do that before here. People usually make some grand entrance when they hit the C-Blogs. I'm not big on grabbing attention or talking about myself. And I may not even stick around for very long, so I'll try to make this as painless for me as possible --

Hello Front Page or whoever is reading this, yo soy Nihil. If you don't know how to pronounce "Nihil", then simply call me Nils. I enjoy films, video games, and harpooning baby seals. I don't even remember how I got here. Winter '09 is kind of a haze for me due to my former job, but I remember liking this place more than The Escapist, which used to be my home for gaming news/content/socializing. The two websites have decidedly different atmospheres and feels to them, and suffice to say, I feel much more comfortable here.

As mentioned, I spend most of my time in the Dtoid "basement" (forums) though, since I can't really keep up with what goes on there and the Front Page, simultaneously. But yeah, the vibe there too is much different than on The Escapist forum. While both are public forums, this place feels very much tight-knit, and you'll know right away whether you can run with the pack or not.

I very much enjoy the people here; for their humor (of course), sentimentality, honesty and no-bullshit tendencies. Hopefully, they feel the same way about me - though I'm no ZLC, wherever the hell he's gone.

So yeah. Anyway. Forums. We don't have them (at the moment). Someone start a fucking riot.

xoxo, Nils
