Hello Again

Mon Mar 28, 2016 8:07 am

Hello my beauties, it has been a while. I think you've had around 5 or so very peaceful years without my presence, so I thought it would be about time I came back to irritate the (Pineapple) out of you.

Due to peer-pressure, guilt trips and an overwhelming sense of nostalgia I actually purchased an xbox yesterday ::panic:: , for the sole purpose of playing halo5 (with you guys ofc ::collab:: )

As this is supposed to be an introduction, and there are a lot of new faces; here's a little about me.

My name's Mike, or Jonesy, or w/e else you decide you want to call me(dw i've been called worse.) I'm 25 and from the UK. Originally joined the site around 7~ years ago during the peak of Halo 3, once Halo 3's popularity died down, so did my enthusiasm to play; I tried a bit of reach and 4, never liked either of them, so I disappeared for around 4/5 years. Gaming has dropped off my to-do list in the last few years, the only game I've played is League of Legends, and I play that pretty rarely; but maybe Halo 5 can change that, who knows :shrug:

As for me; someone from this community once described me as just like Marmite.
Spoiler: show
Marmite is a food spread made from yeast extract, similar to Vegemite see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marmite

The advertising for Marmite in the UK has always been; "You either Love it, or you Hate it" Which kinda sums me up pretty well. If you get my odd sense of humour, and you can deal with my straightforward, no nonsense way of talking, I hope we'll get on great. I may come across as an egotistical, arrogant douchebag; but I'm not like that all the time ::lol::

To the older members, I'd like to say I've grown up, as we all have. You'd have seen the change in me when I originally joined the site(see above, egotistical, arrogant douchebag), to how I was at the end. I'd like to say I've improved even more as a person, hopefully I've gotten wiser, and not just older.

If you've read this far, I'm already impressed, I struggled to read it myself. I considered deleting the whole middle-bit, because as a rule, calling yourself out in an introduction is a really poor way to start; but in the end, it's a part of who I am. And actually, being a part of this community actually changed me as a person (i'd like to think for the better) and in the end I felt that no matter what that says about me, it says something great about this community.

/pointless rant.

So yeah, H! :wave:

Welcome back, Jonesy!
It's been a while I've still got lots of vivid memories from us rolling squad battle back in the day. Good times.

I'm surprised you actually bought a xbox so soon, I thought you would of waited a bit longer and watched some more of Halo 5 before you took the plunge. Welcome back anyway even if you don't like Halo I hope you stick around for a little while.

It's been really interesting seeing people come back in this game. Looking forward to seeing where your return goes, Jonesy.

Welcome back! Halo 5 is a good return to classic halo style, with a mobility update to keep it in check with the modern shooter era, hopefully you'll like it!
If you think we're a rolling double kill.. come get it.

Welcome back Jonesy, you may or may not remember me as Azn. I just bought an Xbox last week for the same reason you did ::lol::

I also took a few years off because Halo 4 was not anything that I wanted, but its nice to be back.
