    dtoidwink Greetings Dtoid.

    Greetings and salutations,

    Im Ryan, And im from England, Long time lurker and reader of destructoid, But never really got around to joining the Community.
    So, No time like the present.
    Game-wise, ill play anything, i dont really have a favourite genre or anything like that, if it peaks my interest I'll play it, I generally buy most new games that come out.

    As far as hobbys go; im very involved with music, i can play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, ukelele and learning violin. i play drums in an on/off funk rock band.
    im also a voluntary youth worker, and help run a club where kids can get free music lessons, rent out instruments and help to play live shows and things like that.

    Ive recently started a comedy-let's play channel with a friend, called "Ryan and Rob play" simple but it works. it can be found here: www.youtube.com/user/Ryanandrobplay . Its Still in development for now. Will more than likely be posting things about it in the community shows section in the future.

    So ill Look forward to posting with you.

    My introduction Seems somewhat inadaquate compared to the others ._.

    Welcome to the dark side!

    I was a lurker for a long time as well, I like to lurk and creep on people. Anyway, you are awesome, I can't even play the flute right, and the only guitar I play is a plastic one. Could you show us your band? I like that style of music.

    Your intro is alright

    Welcome sir.

    I'm a Ryan too, will play any genre of game but lack your talent in the music department. Luckily to save confusion, everyone calls me Edd.

    I'm hoping a combination of your musical talents could lead us to being the UK's leading Pet Shop Boys tribute act. How about it?

    Im sure your flautist skills are in time.
    Band is more of a mess around thing, bassist is currently away. If we can get any footage in the future then sure.

    It's a pretty good start, and the fact that you're looking at others and saying that shows more consideration than most people!

    You sound like a crazy talented person musically! Where abouts in the UK are yer? Any favourite games? Any you're looking forward to? What are you playing now?

    Also, I see your post count going up without posts going up so I'll explain: new users have a bunch of auto-moderation things, your posts will eventually show up and after 20 posts or something the auto-moderation will be dropped.

    Welcome!

    I wish Australia would have a little dignity and remove you guys from their flag. I'm embarrassed for them.

    I can't wait for the day that England and Australia go at it in an all-out war. A war to end all no wars.

    I dont think either would have the willpower to war eachother, they'd both just get bored.

    Like a sporting conflict against Germany, the Ashes is also a time it appears to become acceptable to voice every xenophobic rant or stereotypical joke you can think of. If you're a tabloid newspaper, it's usually part of a pun.

    What you see on the wicket is war.

    Don't worry about Sam, the thermometer that's prepared won't be ice cold and it'll be eased in gently.

    If I had a choice between Australia and the UK in war I would choose Australia. You see more Australians in sc-fi, that means they must have a better chance at surviving.
