Real name/forum handle?

LewiePLewieP Registered User regular
edited August 2008 in PAX Archive
Will you be going by your real name or you forum handle at PAX?

Me? I have it pretty easy, I will introduce myself to people as "LewieP, but just call me Lewie"

My name in any tournaments I decide to enter will be LewieP, and my badge is my avatar with LewieP under it.

    Aye, it sounds like "VT" has stuck well enough that I'll gladly go by that handle at PAX. =)

    I haven't been active at these forums long enough to lend my handle much bearing, so I'll be introducing myself simply as John. Maybe a pin with the moonsnail, but that would be the extent of it.

    Real name: Ian.
    It's gaelic for my dad's name (john).

    People can call me that or any variation of "the dead parrot," or "masterhelios." including "dead," "parrot," "the parrot," "dead guy," "helios," "MH," etc. I don't really care.
    I haven't been here long enough to be known by my forum name, but I'll go by either Vinny or Alias. Or 'that guy that told me they were giving away beta invites to Star the Wars Force Unleashed at the Sony booth so he could take my spot in line at (insert food vendor here)'.

    That'd be awesome if there was actually a food stand called that; "[insert food vendor here.]"

    Not an avid poster as well... but you can totally call me by my Gamertag... or Kyle (not that original of a name). Or you can just shout something... that works too. I'll be the tall guy, standing next to the REALLY tall 7 foot guy, standing next to another tall guy who looks suspiciously just like me, standing next to a tall girl. Holy crap... they sure breed em tall in Canada huh? Yes, yes they do.
