Skype name: Aron.Marczylo
Steam Name: overfiend_87 (renamed to Grognard_87 but can never be found for some reason)
I am considered a geek and proud of it being a fan of comics, retro video games, anime, manga but I also have a love for ancient history (especially Ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman), mythology of all types and a interest in the paranormal (aliens, ghosts and ect, but also keep a healthy skeptical mind). I'm very easy to talk to and often try to break the ice with terrible, cringe-worthy jokes, but I am also always interested in intelligent conversation on recent events in the world, opinions on current look of the world and friendly debates on conflicting issues.
Currently in a relationship, but I have no problem meeting new friends as I find you can never have too many friends and I enjoy being close with multiple people.
So far I've created a few games through the course and posted them on my new Itch.io page where I'll be posting future prototypes where I try to work out coding for various mechanic ideas I have for other games: https://grognard87.itch.io/
I can very easily understand what it feels like to walk in the shoes of someone who has suffered things I could never possibly imagine, as if it happened to me personally, but at the same time never claim to have gone through a similar experience unless I did in real life.
Also depending on the light my dark blue eyes, but mostly my long hair and all obvious physical traits...not sure what else to say really *shrugs*
Comics: Mostly superhero ones, I'm a big fan of classics and own Watchmen and Batman: The Killing Joke but I've also started tracking down some Paul Dini graphic novels. I don't buy individual comics because it's likely to get lost in my room or my cat or dog might tear it up. I also quite like the series Exiles, however i've heard it went down hill later.
TV Shows: I love all kinds of comedy, even really old ones like Alf, The Munsters, Dad's Army or 'Allo 'Allo but I have been watching The Big Bang Theory, Futurama, true blood, Warehouse 13, dollhouse, Game of Thrones and Enjoying British shows like Argumental.
I also collect old kids TV shows such as Captain Scarlet, Batman: TAS, Batman Beyond, Sonic SatAM, Count Duckula but I do enjoy sci-fi greats like Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek and Blakes 7. I'm also going to start watching Battlestar Galactica (the new series) and Babylon 5 (I haven't seen it all the way through).
Anime: Recently got back into anime and I've been watching lots of different shows on Crunchyroll. I've become a big fan of Rokka and the Six Braves, but waiting for the new season is taking sooo long.

Movies: I have a even bigger collection of movies, but I'll keep this short. I'm a big fan of comedys and I'm a huge fan of Jackie Chan too. I also have a collection of some awesome old movies like The Day The Earth Stood Still, The Explorers, The Last Starfighter and many more.
Animated (not anime): Batman Beyond: The Return of the Joker, Futurama: Bender's Big Score, The Iron Giant, The Secret of Nihm, Titan A.E. and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Cheated a bit there, huh?)
Anime: Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Kiki's Delivery Service, Vampire Hunter D and many, many TV series.
Others (cause I'm lazy): Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Rush Hour (trilogy), Mall Rats, Dogma, Total Recall, Commando, Conan The Barbarian, Donnie Darko, Unbreakable, Mystery Men, Mystery Science Theatre 3000 and many others. Just ask if I have it and I probably do.
I have a mixed genre. I got into metal at school which seems to be the normal evolution from Rock and Roll which I was raised on (Elvis, The Beetles and so on) but I like all kinds of music from most bands so my taste is quite caries going from Korn to Tenacious D or Lordi to Weird Al. Plus I love Fall Out Boy, Tom Jones and Crash Test Dummies. Not to mention music from The Phantom of the Opera.
Also send me a message if you want to ask me if I like a certain band, tv series and ect which I havn't mentioned or even geek over stuff I have mentioned. I'm easy on either opinion.
I'm quite picky with my food, but I'm willing to try new things. Chocolate is something I absolutely love and if you have chocolate in your hand right now I'm going to jump through the screen and get it!
Chocolate is a real love and almost a drug-like addiction to the stuff, however I've had to cut back on that for my diet, which is indeed working.
2. Writing: I enjoy creative writing, though now I focus that more into the game design area as I write up some interesting game ideas in my personal form of a miniature design document.
3. Video Games: My favourite pass-time, but as I learn about thinking like a game designer I sit down and focus more on the many working parts with how the story, gameplay and visual feedback work together and how in good games they compliment each other whilst in bad ones they do not work to it's advantage.
4. Company: Despite often being alone in my room at home, I love being around people where we get to enjoy ourselves generally watching movies, TV shows, anime or even just someone to talk to about the deeper and more meaning things in life.
5. Chocolate: I have quite the sweet tooth. I try to cut back, but I need to have a good sugar fix.
6. Glasses: I struggle with distance and though I am fine with reading fine-prints, I am terrible at making out the details of anything a certain distance away from me. Also I've grown so used to them that I feel naked without them.
I try not to focus on the last one as trying to consider what may or may not have happened can drive you insane. Not to mention I don't like the idea of ever altering time as I've seen The Butterfly Effect and don't want to think about how many people's lives I might make worse by altering things.
Also you can catch me online either on steam or Skype or even Facebook, however Steam you are more likely to get a response from.
note: Please, tell me when you are adding me as I'm quite easily spooked and would like to hear where you got my username from due to past events involving ghosts of the past, so-to-speak.
You want to ask something in reference to any of the stuff I've posted in my profile?
You want to a loyal and dedicated friend willing to sit down and listen to everything you say with an open mind.
Or you're just as crazy as I am :D
I reply very often so if I don't get back to you don't take it as an offence, but it usually means I'm either AFK or haven't come up with anything to say.
