Um, hi?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Unsure if anyone reads these things, but here goes if its the done thing.

Potted history then.

OK so I spent around a decade working in the games industry when I was just starting out in life, helped to build up the computer&games dept in Hamleys working for them, then Nintendo and a major game distributor on site, then moved into the arcade scene with Namco and some side work with SNK and Sega. After that I became a Japanese translator for a few years then moved to the north of Japan with my wife to help out some in-laws. Moved back to London a fair few years ago now due to bereavements.

Am now at the tail end of a media production course in London.

Computer wise, I've been cannibalizing and rebuilding, and building from scratch decks for a bit over 20 years now, although when it comes to modding am totally clueless.

My main hobbies include watching Japanese tv dramas, and movies, I rarely make the time to watch anime or read manga these days, would like to get back into the habit though, and I have a number of personal projects on the go. I hope to make some short films this year as soon as my coursework is out of the way!

I hope to finally start learning Photoshop and Premiere this year and to build up some basic, functional websites. I used to use Dreamweaver, only the very basics, but due to personal circumstances had to dedicate my time to taking care of my wife.

I reckon that's enough boring waffle for now!

Erm, thanks, I guess! Well, 40 later this year, and in all honesty, I love being my age, my first game was Pong and haven't stopped playing since...

Yeah i'm not attempting to be rude just in comparison to most of the people here you're older (there are a lot of 13-20 year-olds here)

An arcade junkie like myself?!

I welcome you with open arms my friend .
Also, did you have any work with the King Of Fighters or the Time Crisis series?

Those are my absolute favorites.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys n dolls!

No offence taken! Most of the people on my course are just turning 20 and I get on just fine with them, probably better than people my own age in fact ^^
