OK guys, I thought this would be an excellent way of getting to know each other. Afterall, I fully expect the OUYA community to grow exponentially once the OUYA comes out in March/April. Feel free to introduce yourself, let us know your OUYA username, how you normally game, and anything else about yourselves.

I'll get it started.

My name is Frank Eveblotch, and I live in Tampa, Florida. I am typically a recreational gamer. I mostly play Xbox 360 and games on my mini iPad. I'm a huge fan of the OUYA, and expect to continue to be. I heard about the OUYA from Ed (owner of this site), who is a good friend of mine. I am 25 years old, and engaged to the love of my life.

Hi all...

and thx for OUYA forum for following me on twitter @tsugamumasakoto. It seems that OUYA offers a lot new innovations, especially for indie developers. And since I am about to work in indie developer studio called "Agate Studio" in Yogyakarta, I would be so pleased if OUYA sells well here in Indonesia..

Well, my complete name is Wisnu Setioko, but you call me Wisnu. I'm usually nick-named myself "tsugamu". Hope we all can learn new things here...:D

My name is Miguel Vallés. I live in Teruel, Spain and I'm 22. My OUYA username is DeadGhost.

I am also a recreational gamer, although I enjoy playing any kind of videogame. I mostly play Xbox 360 and PC, and a little Wii too (its hardcore games like Zelda, Metroid or Xenoblade). I love what OUYA has to offer, it can become the definitive indie gaming platform, hopefully. I first heard about the OUYA in its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

I'm a videogame developer at Teku Studios (http://www.tekustudios.com/) (owner and lead programmer. @TekuStudios (https://twitter.com/TekuStudios)), and I hope that our first game can eventually reach OUYA.

Hey guys my name is Douglas im 17. Im a gamer on the mobile side mainly because other competitors are lacking today. Ouya is looking amazing, I will most definitely be getting one! I play games like Dead Trigger, Need for Speed, and Dead Space on android.

Hello - I'm not a gamer - haven't really used my PC for gaming the past decade, and never really saw the reason for buying a console. I really do not know why the OUYA actually fires me up like this, but it does. On the other hand it must be the price, openness and flexibility - I really love the thought. But also a hope that other multimedia applications will reveal them selves - for instance for streamingservices. If the mony is available, I'm getting one.

Hello, my name is Bennett, and I live in Columbus Ohio, USA. I'm a 25-year-old guy. My OUYA username is beaver_regnew, same as my handle on this forum. I am not a very invested gamer (as in, I suck and I don't play much), but I really love video games. I've played all the classic Nintendo systems; my current systems are my modded Gamecube and my PSP. And PC I suppose, since I have some games on my netbook. I've been a fan of open source / Linux software for a number of years, so when I saw the OUYA on Kickstarter I just had to get involved. I'm very excited about the openness to developers; I have an idea for a game of my own, but no programming or design experience, so I'm not actually expecting that to happen. In any case, I am very much looking forward to getting my OUYA and playing what's already out there.

Hallo everyone. My ouya username is Triodefreak. I'm not a gamer. Well I used to play Radofin and ZX Spectrum 48k when I was a kid. Then some doom in the pc era. And far cry when it first came out.

My kids have an XBOX. And I got an ouya because of the principle. Just seemed so cool. And cheap. Very excited that it will be able to work as a media player with XBMC.

Hello, my name is Connor. I'm a 20 year old college student studying graphic design. I live in Washington state, an hour north of Seattle. I've been stuck on video games ever since my best friend gave me his Gameboy and a copy of Pokemon Ruby in 5th grade. I wasn't allowed to own any gaming consoles, so I kept my gameboy hidden for a long time.

My gamertag is GalacticUnicorn. I play PS3 mainly, with a few mobile and PC games. I found Ouya on Kickstarted and was instantly intrigued. I preordered one right away and have been looking forward to the release ever since.

I consider myself a hardcore recreational gamer because I like the hardcore games, but I don't often have much time to play; school comes first.

Hello, I'm Marc. I'm 35 and I've been working as a Android Apps developer. Last year I released my personal game project to Google Play named Number Wave (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.marcrh.numberwave). Actually I'm writting Androuya (http://androuya.es), a spannish blog about this great console as a project too.

I'm entusiast of this indie revolution.

Hello everyone!

My name is Henke and I've spent the better part of my 38 years as a swedish resident. I've been a gamer for more than 30 years by now, starting in 1981 I think. When it comes to games I've been a fan of Minecraft for quite a while now. And of course Dungeon Keeper back in the days. What else? Civilization of course, all of them except #5 which just seems stupid.

And I have never, EVER played a WW2-shooter, and I never will.

I'm a software tester by profession, which makes me a non-coding developer, and I'm going to have some serious fun with this little manick.

Hello, all! I'm Jordan, from the Midwest. I heard about Ouya before the Kickstarter, and it just gave me the same spark that reading the book Snow Crash did, with their futuristic portable computers. Granted, this is just a game console, but technology is getting close to reaching that point. I want to be there, and to enjoy it. Thus, the money escaped from my wallet and found its way to Kickstarter. Plus, I like me some video games. XD As an early 20-something with nothing to look forward to but the future and a passion for the vidya, maybe I can pick something up, and stop living myself to death.

JP Haukka, 23 and Spanish gaymer, owner of a bunch of consoles inside a TARDIS, but, since me getting an Ouya on its launch day is a fixed point in time, I can't cheat and get mine already. Just new in all this, so I'm really looking forward to develop and play with you guys!

Hi, my name is Aranda and I'm the lead coder for Gnomic Studios (http://www.gnomicstudios.com/). I've been gaming since I started in the late 80s on Vic20 and C64 with games like Barbarian, IK+, Spyhunter, Creatures... too many to list. I think OUYA is a great opportunity for indie developers such as myself to bring a new wave of games to people's televisions. Looking forward to bringing our game Square Off and all our future games to OUYA.

Hello!

Michael, here. (strider_mt2k)
Big fan of Android gaming as well as hardware hacking and other geeky tech pursuits.
I look forward to gaming on and modifying my Ouya, as well as sharing my ideas and experiences with my fellow Ouya enthusiasts.

I was originally a nay-sayer against this system, but I have realized that it has a lot of potential and now can be counted among the many folks who are ready for spring to arrive! :D

Hello everybody my name is EnderRawr and I usually game on my PC. When I saw the OUYA it immediately caught my attention. I can't wait to get it. I hope that they will get Minecraft on it because if they do that will be the first game that I get.

02-17-2013, 10:07 PM
I cannot wait to get my Ouya this June. Just pre-ordered one on Amazon!

I am mainly getting the Ouya to play "schmups" on it. I love old-school style shooter games (and MAME!). Ouya is what I have been waiting for! I also love how you can hook a projector up to it! Portable systems better look out! I also write for a website, and am writing another article on the Ouya as I type this.

Can't wait to check out the games section here to see what I have to look forward to!

Hiya, my name is Michael Torres and I'm the... I don't know I guess idea guy. Game designer, would you call it? Concept and Mechanics dude of EmpireGamingLLC (https://twitter.com/EmpireGamingLLC). We picked up the Developers package off the OUYA kickstarter and suddenly thought we were game developers. Here we are some 6-8 months later and it's about to be true. If all goes well, we'll be releasing our first project on March 28th. We are a couple programmers, a retail employee, a network engineer, a student, and me, a warehouse grunt. Not exactly the best and brightest, but we've got the passion and the ideas. All we need now is the support, I think we'll find it here.

Thanks for having me in your community.

Hi guys. I already left a partial introduction but what the hell.

Names Rioting Spectre, I specialize in video games such as the Sega Saturn and N64. So if you have any questions about video game consoles and the like, come to me and I'll give you answers backed up by years of experience and facts. I currently don't have a Ouya but am getting one at launch. I'm extremely truthful about my responses and tend to rub people the wrong way because of it... My mannerism are rather unique and my family and I have a really twisted sense of humor so just to let you know. I'm not a jerk but a poorly misunderstood person due to years of repression.

I'm currently being stalked by a mod on these forums for some reason. Whether he's after my Kitkats or my soul; he's not going to get either one of them.

Nice to meet you, all.

Hello guys, My name is Matt. And I love gaming :) I am from Egypt and I wish I can get an ouya. After many years of gaming on PC ( Never had a console actually ). I decided to buy an OUYA .. I don't know why, but ouya is something that I loved. I love how its open for everyone :). Although I never learnt coding or been interested that much, I plan on getting started on coding games for ouya and they will be 100% free.

Ouya Update
06-14-2013, 09:54 AM
Hi there!

I'm Alex, a 19 year old student from Germany, currently living in Norway!
I've had a big interest in the Ouya ever since its kickstarter days, and have always been up-to-date with the most recent news about the console, since I'm planning to buy it on launch day. I must admit, that is because I didn't quite trust the developers to actually deliver a completed product in the short amount of time they'd set themselves, but it turned out they were more than capable of doing it, so now they're "worthy" to get what little money I have as a student.
What really makes the Ouya worth it in my opinion though, is that it comes with potentially many free games, and that it allows me to run emulators on my TV, which no other console does at the moment. That's what really makes it stand out for me, and why I'm going to get it.

Next to my studies, I'm also running a blog called Ouya Update (http://ouyaupdate.tumblr.com) together with a friend of mine from Germany (Matt). We aim to eventually turn it into a news website featuring everything you need to know about the Ouya - kind of like a digital magazine! If any of you is a self-proclaimed writer or website designer and wants to work together with us, feel free to contact us on our blog!

So yeah, that's basically it - I'm sure I'll have a great time around here with your community, and hopefully Matt and me will be able to contribute something worthwhile!

I'm a 32-year-old webserver admin now living in New Orleans, LA. I'm fairly into gaming (both classic and modern), and have accumulated way to much gaming 'stuff' over the years.

For other hobbies, I also like to dress up in stupid costumes and go drinking (It's a thing we do here). There's actually a sci-fi costume party coming up in about a week, so for a bit of comic relief, here's my fat ass dressed up in a 'Tron Guy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PU53wIKa0CQ)' costume. I really hate the mustache--but it's not 'Tron Guy' without one:

Hello.

My name is Amadeus (yeah, irl), I'm currently 16, hoping to be 18 soon. I'm very very friendly. I can be VEEERY immature, but also very mature depending on the situation. I don't have an Ouya as of now, but I'll get one as soon as it hits retails store. My favorite games are Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Borderlands 2, and a few others. I like shows like Friends, South Park, pretty much all comedy stuff. I'm aiming to be an Ouya developer, probably not soon, but I know one day I'll be.

imamelia
06-18-2013, 06:30 AM
Hello, everyone...or, as I say in my LPs, salvete, omnes. I don't usually give out my real name on the Internet, but I'm currently 22 years old and live in Montana, USA, and I've graduated from the local university with a degree in linguistics. I've been playing video games for most of my life, though I wouldn't consider myself "hardcore" (especially since the term doesn't have a very positive connotation for me...). Some of my favorites are the Donkey Kong Country games, the Mario platformers, and the Mega Man games, and my favorite non-handheld console from each generation is, respectively, the NES, SNES, PS1, PS2, Wii, and Wii U. I think I actually first found out about the Ouya just by looking up information about the eighth generation of video games. I thought it looked like a pretty cool idea, and besides, I hadn't played much in the way of indie games before. And so far, this does seem like a fairly friendly community to be a part of, so...all right.

Starfighter
06-18-2013, 03:06 PM
The short version:
My name is Starfighter (on teh realz, changed it a few years back) and as my profile says, I'm a 27 year old crustpunk who likes to drink beer for breakfast.

My video game history:
I got a NES as my first video game console and it was my best (only) friend for several years. When I discovered hardcore punk I sold all games to get money for alcohol and records and didn't care about anything else up until the release of the Playstation 2. That's when I re-discovered the joy of video games and started collecting my childhood favorites as well as new things.

My collection:
I'm closing in on 900 games for over 30 formats but I'm not really collecting to show off. I don't care about how mint something is and I don't buy games I don't like just to have a complete set of anything. You can check out my collection over at backloggery (http://www.backloggery.com/starfighter).

My outlook on video games:
While I play on medium/hard and my favorite genres are shoot 'em up and survival horror, I deeply believe that the video game culture should be about fun, and helping others to have fun. I would never call anyone a "n00b", make sexist comments or diminish people based on their preferences in gaming.

The Tallest
07-03-2013, 04:55 PM
Hello. The Tallest here. It's from Invader Zim if you must know. I love that show.

Anywho, I had originally pledged to the Ouya when it first went up on KS at the $100 level. Within the first few days it had hit it's funding level and I got cold feet so I backed out of the pledge. Figured it was too good to be true. I figured I'd wait and see what happened. Well, last month I had heard the Ouya dropped so I ordered one. I did originally join this site too; though I don't remember my username or password so I just made a new account. I'm not much of a console gamer but I do like Android and figured since I like messing around with Android phones that an Android based console might be fun. So, I got it last night and hooked it up. It took several hours to update and download a few games; my internet connection sucks.

I've currently downloaded The Bard's Tale (I love inXile) and Final Fantasy III (never played a FF game before) and some racing game. I haven't really messed around with it too much.

I'd like to add a larger fan too it if it's possible. It'd also be cool to do a custom case. I'd even like to Root it at some point and maybe add an external HDD if possible as opposed to a flash drive.

I'm a PC gamer at heart and have in the past done a lot of PC mods and build all of my own computers.

Got an Ouya at the first of July and love the system. many people here, or a few at least, have already interacted with me in the chat here on the site. Love the system, as I said. many great original games already and the Emulators really run very well. Keep it up guys and hope to see you all on the site. Anyone else live in Southern Cali?

Hi there! I took an interest in the Ouya after seeings its price tag and what it promises. Seeing a huge company like Square Enix porting a game of theirs to the Ouya was that one last thing that convinced me that the Ouya was gonna be huge. :) I don't have my own Ouya yet (budget stuff), but would probably get one soon after I see content I'm really interested in ported to it.

Hi everybody, just wanted to introduce myself a bit and say it's great to be a member here.

I live in El Paso, am an independent tech and do it on the side until i can get a better job doing it full time. College grad for Computer Sci, been using a computer for many years and working on them for almost as long, love gaming since the C64 and 2600. Linux rocks, Win sucks most of the time.

My little hopes for the Ouya are that it will be expandable in some sort of hardware form, I will do my best to help, and hope to have a lot of fun with it when I DO get one :)

What's up My name is Tchad I live in England my Ouya username is SilenTii and I've been a gamer for the last 16 years (started when I was 5). Im more of a console gamer then a pc gamer since none of my pc's were any good for new games xD. I usually play on my ps3 and from there got introduced to indie games like Castle Crashers, so when I heard about the Ouya I though it was a great way to help support indie developers. Ive only had my one for 4 days now but im enjoying every moment, I was almost turned off from the Ouya after watching so many negative reviews but Im glad I decided to still get it.

Wraith_Vague
08-03-2013, 04:39 AM
Going by Wraith_Vague these days I guess. Also my OUYA name. Used to be Riven Malkavian way back in The 4th Coming days. 32 years old. Was beating Super Mario before the age of 10 on NES. Had the gold cartridge of Legend of Zelda and beat that as well. Been building high performance gaming computers since the late 90's. UNIX and Windows system admin by profession for a large corporation. In my spare time I feed my tinkering addiction. Always have to tear something apart and make it better. Understand the flow of most programming languages but not a good coder. Have no graphics talent. Able to modify anything if I poke at it enough. Sort of a jack of all trades and master of none. Excel at internet research and absorption of technical knowledge. I make things work by any means necessary.

I'm here because I root for the underdog and want to see a change in the gaming arena. Have been a fan of Android since at least 2009 when I got my first Motorola Droid 1 phone. I have my doubts about the survival of this little box. But with each new developer and some of the very nice 3D games I've seen recently, my hopes are soaring. Playing some of the best android games ever made on the big screen is a very exhilarating experience. Received my pre-Order OUYA on the June 25th retail launch and I've been burning the midnight oil and expanding its abilities since then.

Akira_of_Davion
08-03-2013, 07:23 AM
Akira_of_Davion -underscores for OUYA and PSN.
Akira of Davion - spaces on XBL.

Much like Vague up there, I like the underdog. However, I bought my OUYA on more of a lark.

Was having a conversation in a local GameStop that lead into talk about the OUYA and GameStick, then on to other things. One night of reasearch later, I made a decision to (find, and then) pick one up. This was a little bit after launch, so it took a couple days, since people mostly only had their preorder stock.

The idea of an open box for $100 intrigues me. The emulation alone, for me, was worth the price of admission, but being able to not only buy titles, but have the outside possibility to put something together myself if I so chose piqued my interest. I mean, I'm the same guy who sunk a ton of time into the first couple RPG Maker games on PS1 (I made a sephiroth sprite set I was really proud of on the first one, especially since it was all controller work- no mouse) and has purchased wrestling titles SIMPLY to futz around with the CAW for awhile to see how realistic I can make friends and or celebrities and whatnot... I barely even play the intended game.

Anyway, for the price of a decent tablet, I got something a whole lot better: a virtually bottomless toybox with an attached community!

See you 'round.

The open box is available for $100..i think i can live with that price..there is certainly o terms and conditions for that.

Hi all! I'm Danny, 29 and an avid gamer.

Decided to splurge on an Ouya, however had a hard time finding one through routes on the Ouya website. Living in Australia, hard to get my hands on one. Had to settle on eBay and found a seller in Australia.

Was on the hunt for some age old classic consoles via eBay also, but getting sniped at the last second bugged me. I turned to the Ouya and it's emulating awesomeness.

Gonna pick up a few titles that are purchasable in the next few days. Pretty impressed with the Ouya so far. Fits in perfectly with the big behemoths that are the 360 and PS3. hahaha

Hi guys! I'm actually too poor to afford an Ouya right now, but I really want to help develop games for it. I work primarily as a comic book artist (http://briandanielwolf.deviantart.com/), but I have also done character designs (http://briandanielwolf.deviantart.com/gallery/45366658) for games as well as interface mockups (http://briandanielwolf.deviantart.com/gallery/33888506). In fact, right now I am working on characters for a visual novel set in a MMO. (https://www.facebook.com/DestinyLimitGame) Nice to meet you all!

Hi, I'm Tomas, my nickname on OUYA is GameEs (in case we get "Friends" in the near future, which I hope we will!) and I bought OUYA last week on vacation in Scotland (it's not sold in Czech Republic where I live). I love it as multimedia center but also like the games, though I think the potencial is much bigger than the games look like, so I hope it will get better in the future. I study IT university and OUYA got me into thinking I'd try to get into programming and try to learn myself something and maybe start development for OUYA and base my bachelor work next year on that. Wish me luck with that, it's still just an idea :)

I hope I'll stick around for a long time and enjoy it here :)

Hey yo,

I'm Alex -- I just joined after having purchased my first Ouya just yesterday. Which is why I marked myself as an ouya owner and not future owner.
As well I do android development with a focus on personal security and safety. I wanted to get into game programming for a while now and I figured the ouya was the PERFECT place to do this.

So here I am a year after the events of the kick starter brainstorming ideas and learning to more efficiently wrote code.

On the whole I feel like my knowledge is lacking but I intend to make it better over time as I get more and more into working with android.

I am above all else self taught. There is something to be said for a person who goes to school to learn something but the people who have better more interesting stories are -USUALLY- the ones who start from ground zero and learn of their own will.

So... Nice to meet you all! - You will likely be seeing me around :)

Howdy, names Tylar, 31, I lost any passion for gaming with the PS2/XB/GC generation, the OUYA peeked my interest. The emulators are my main interest here, expecting it in the mail in about a week :D I can play old games on the telly and download some new stuff on the cheap, very excited! Plus my daughter loves all the old Sega games, so she'll get a kick out of it :)

Jello everyone as you can figure from my user name who i am. I got my Ouya this past Sunday. I had to travel an hour from my place to get it. Then once i got to that particular Best Buy they tried to tell me they didn't have any despite there site saying they did. So after my wife convinced the guy to look in the back he brought us out one of the 2 they had.

We brought it home ,and set it on top of our entertainment center that already contains a softmodded Wii ,and a PS3.

Our first games purchased on our Ouya were Bard's Tale, Shadowgun, Knightmare Tower, and Pizza Boy. I plan on snagging Giana Sisters (after they fix the flickering issue), Gunslugs, Heavy Recoil, Ravensword, Freedom Fall ,and Wraithborne.

I've also sideloaded Bean's Quest ,and Dead Trigger. I've spent probably 6 hours testing stuff i have through my amazon ,and google play accounts.

I hope Ouya gets more games from Gameloft ,and Mad Finger Games.

Hello all! I have finally entered the Ouya Community! I just won a phenomenal bid on Ebay for an Ouya! It comes with emulators, and a couple free games! I swear i haven't ever been excited to buy a game system since the Wii U, 3DS, Wii, and Dreamcast(last year, cause im a Nintendo/Sony kid). I'm happy to say "I own an Ouya!". I guess i'm so excited because besides the few emus on the Wii, i can play emulators on my giant TV(unfortunately it's old, so i have to put it in the den), and play cool unique games. The Ouya is also hated on, and for some reason, even though the Ouya ITSELF drew me in, after it got hated on, i felt like i had to be there for it. I'm a bit odd that way. I almost bought an N-Gage last month because it was unpopular and forgotten, and i'm just crazy. ANYWAY! I'm Chris. My child hood nickname was Dudy. And in fact, i still get called that. seriously, so don't make fun of my name! Anyway, I'm 23, i have a cool job as a Transporter at Presby Hospital, and i'm glad to be here!

Hi all, I'm Jon. I'm in NYC and while I have a 360, my gaming on it has kind of fallen off because I prefer to dedicate multiple hours at a time to gamong on it, and it just feels like that time isn't as available these days. So of late, most of my gaming has been on my iPad.

I don't have an Ouya yet, but I anticipate ordering one and the xbox 360 USB receiver (seems a better option than buying extra Ouya controllers) within the next month, so I can get started gaming again. I also plan to use the Ouya as a streaming and emulation box, but I've already backed the Nevending Nightmares and Dungeons the Eye of Draconus (before they got help qualifying for the Ouya FtGF match), and I'm sure I'll back other FtGF games as well as buy games for my Ouya (once I finally have it).

I just hope they get external storage figured out sooner, rather than later! :)

Hi everyone! My name's Robbit and I come from Rabbitland. I'm 106 years old and I make videos online.

I heard about the OUYA late last year and I preordered mine soon after. I was bit disappointed (frustrated?) initially with how the store and downloads functioned but luckily it kept getting better with each update. (although I don't see the point of the new "bury" feature in the Discover section)
I've been playing a lot more OUYA games recently and am looking forward to do play throughs on those awesome OUYA exclusives when pretty soon.

Hi

I am Russ, 34.I love football and support Wycombe Wanderers. I also 'groundhop' which entails visiting as many grounds as possible. In the past few games I have been to Bishops Cleeve and Lazio, so as you can see my range is broad. I do have a site/blog , but I am not sure if I can promote it here, so I will leave it for now.

I love my gadgets also. I've been into computers since I was a kid, my main machines being Spectrum, Amiga, PC, Mac, PS3 with lots of others in between.

My current systems are a MacBook Pro, a Modded xBox original and a DS. As well as Samsung S3 and iPad 4

I've not had a lot of luck with Android boxes so far. 2 have been refunded due to non delivery from China, one was so buggy I sold it and just as I thought I'd found a good one, the video output has failed, so I am sending it back and getting an Ouya. In fact I will be off down town later to hopefully get one.

Why an Ouya? Mainly for a media box for watching online video content. But also as an emulation machine as it is a pain to transfer files to the modded xBox without wireless. I plan to plug my external hard drive in which has lots of films, music and roms on it. The other stuff looks neat also, and I don't mind paying top range prices (so far as an Android box is concerned) for this and the online community for the console, which is pretty fragmented with other Android boxes

Hi there, my name's Tony. Better known by my nickname TimeWalker.

I'm from Switzerland and right now still in school. I'm an avid player. I like to play a wide range of Games. My most favorite genres are Music/Rhythm games, Puzzler, Plattformers and racing games. I have quite an collection of games and consoles ranging from NES and Mega Drive to current Xbox 360 and PS3.
What I also like to do is programming. Programming is my passion and I like to program small games for PC or build up some web pages.

Right now I don't have an OUYA yet. I've been following the console since day one and already saw the ups and downs of this console. Meanwhile, I tried the OUYA out at a friend's place. With the current Indie Kickstarter projects and now trying it out I really like the OUYA more and more. So I'll be getting myself one soon.
Not only that but I'll also plan to develop games for the OUYA. I already have a running project for the OUYA and hope to show it one day!

So that's pretty much all I wanted to say here. Hope everything will go fine!

Hi Everyone :D,

I'm new to the website although I have been reading and viewing the website for a few months now pretty much ever since the launch OUYA came out. My names David (Dave for Short) I'm from Oregon.

I'm a recreational gamer. I first heard about OUYA through Kickstarter's page like most of you did I'm sure. My parents just got me an OUYA for Merry Christmas, I can't wait to play it. I'll probably have to hold off for a few more days though before I can because I'm having my friend over spending a few days at my apartment on Tuesday. And he likes his Playstation so I probably won't have the time yet to gets things going with my OUYA like I'd like :frown-new: But I will soon. Also I think it's The Limited Edition White OUYA my parents got for me, so I'll see about taking some photos of it with my camera out of the Box and everything. And posting some on here. When I get the chance to when it's free time again for me. Since when my friend spends the night at my place he usually stays over for several days since he doesn't have any access to internet connection where he lives at like I do.

Any who, glad to be aboard this forum. Feel free to message me (PM) If you have any questions about my profile or anything what ever or just want to talk. I'm super tired now so I'm hitting the hay. And going to bed. Goodnight!

I'm Steven (obviously), but I answer to nearly anything, especially things that I can't repeat here.

This isn't my first post, but I never saw this topic before. I was almost an OUYA backer but certain circumstances prevented me at nigh-last minute. It's okay, though, because I just got mine earlier this month for $18. I love what it can do so far. I've got over 20 consoles and the OUYA's pretty much the only thing I've had on most of the month.

By my own admission, I'm not really good at anything, but I try. I use Game Maker and have been tinkering with Android and OUYA design. I'm first going to port some old stuff with added adjustments and then roll from there. One of the few things I haven't gotten too many complaints about is my voice acting; I was casting director and voice actor for Battle High 2 (http://www.battlehigh2.com/) (as well as marketing director) where I got to work with some known names in the industry including Kyle Hebert, Kira Buckland, and Tim Sutton. In a game I released last year for PC, I tapped Richard Epcar for the final boss' vocals. I'm actively looking for more work and networking in this field.

Apparently I'm not altogether terrible at character design, either. The character for my Pac-Man clone, Chomperman, has gotten favorable comments, and I've heard nothing about good things about a character my best friend (http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/16/164924/2609479-1979909838-Shade.png) and I designed 20 years ago, who I was able to get included as a background character in Skullgirls.

Other than gaming stuff, I like Ninja Turtles, martial arts, action figures, and volleyball.

Overall, I'm glad to be here, as it seems to be "the place" for OUYA stuff.

Hey everyone,

I just stumbled across this thread and thought a little late is better than never for an introduction.

"Sitting Fox" is good enough for now, I suppose.I really enjoy programming and the like and have been at it for a good number of years . The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know. I like the puzzle solving aspect of programming though, as well as how you can create things, and I like to think that so long as I don't give up and keep at it, there's nothing I can't do.

I'm interested in making games of the adventure and RPG variety, though I'm open to outside that. I'm working on something now, but it's early on enough that it could really turn into another idea rather than the particular one I have in mind. I'll just keep at it and see where it takes me. I'd like to release whatever it ends up as on OUYA though.

I'm using the LÖVE/Love2D framework. I find it to be a more clear and simple XNA, which is where I have some past experience in.

I've had my OUYA a couple months now I believe. It's been great fun and a great inspiration. I've been bringing mine with me to the past couple holiday gatherings with the family, and it's been a hit. I've already had the youngest family member request I always bring it from now on.

I think that about covers it. See ya 'round.

Complete newbie here even though I am probably one of the Senior Citizens (50's) just got my Ouya, love the content and premise just already set for Ouya 2 console on the Hardware side:-) I am always looking for new toys. On a personal side I don't know why but I tend to like the simple games over these malty million dollar games (have PS3, PS4, to commercial).

I live on the Coast in Washington State, new to the area native of Maine. Background is in Tech Support, Public Relations, Beta Testing. The Beta testing is where I get in to trouble with wanting the lastest toys on a limited pockbook :devilish:.

Hi everyone!

My name is Nic, and I've been excited about the idea of micro consoles for a long time now, and have been working on and off on an Ouya game since the kickstarter.

I officially started my career in the game industry working at Icarus Studios on the PC MMO Fallen Earth. Afterwards I spent time working for Oasys Mobile on several mobile(read: pre-iPhone) versions of popular franchises like Civilization and Pirates! After a short time away from the industry, I became one of the two founding members of Mighty Rabbit Studios, who are known for Saturday Morning RPG and Breach & Clear. Due to financial issues I yet again had to leave the industry for a short stint. I'm back now and currently work for Hazard Studios who recently released Scrap Squad for iOS and Android.

Throughout school and my professional career I've worked on dozens of personal projects. One of the most notable is Cylinder, a puzzle game which is currently available for xbox 360 indie game channel (which was previously available on iOS as well). Check out the CGR video review here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb_vPt7hbxw

I'm heavily interested in making action, adventure, platforming and rpg games, or any combination of those genres. In addition to my personal projects, I've been working with a few friends on an action adventure game for Ouya as our primary target, and I hope to share screenshots of it soon!

Better late than never...
My name is Troy, my Ouya name is trizznilla like my handle here. Been playing games since '76. Thought I was the oldest one here but chromebookman wins that award. Started with a JCPenny Sports Arcade (Pong, but claimed it was soccer, tennis, hockey, and Jai 'Ali), moved on to the 2600, then the industry crashed. Grampa got me a computer since he was a nerd and wanted a nerdling to follow in his footsteps. Fell out of gaming and was an athlete for a while, but then Double Dragon pulled me back into the arcade. NES arrived and blew my mind, Capcom and Konami games molded me into the Ninja Gamer I became when I was playing the hardest of the hardcore Sega Genesis games. I think my gaming Nirvana experience arrived when Gunstar Heroes and Landstalker arrived in stores the day I found a used copy of M.U.S.H.A after beating Lightning Force on mania difficulty without losing a single life. Imported a copy of Dracula X for Turbo CD to ensure that I wouldn't get laid for an entire summer. Never picked a side since a real gamer plays everything, but after a stint working Xbox customer support I'll never give Microsoft another penny. Now that I have a 5yr old and a 1 yr old, I can't 'no life' an open world rpg anymore, so I picked up an android tablet in the hopes that the browser could somehow play flash games on Kongregate.com. Found out that android is basically Linux, joined Google plus because Facebook seemed to be ruining the lives of others around me. Found a post about the Ouya, and the idea of an open android device with hdmi and a controller that you could do anything with just blew my mind. I figured at the very least I could use the browser to stream low quality video off of fast pass TV... Fast forward to my birthday, I find an Ouya at Target. My wife surprises me with a ps4. Hook 'em both up, realize that the ps4 is a ps3 with spectacular lighting and no games. Realize that the Ouya is more than I ever expected, xbmc changed my entertainment life, and my kids are laughing and enjoying that little silver box more than anything else on the TV. All while respecting my wallet!

That was a wall of text, but it's only a portion of my gaming tastes and background. I am saddened that a Google search of 'Ouya' only brings back doom, gloom and despair. But on the other hand, it keeps dumbass turdheads out of this community while they bitch and moan that the new systems aren't the second coming of Jesus Christ in COD form. Let them pour money into an industry that they insist is abusing them with dlc, I'll be over here with you guys squeezing enjoyment out of 99 cents!

Hey guys been on here a few days now didn't realize there was an introductory thread - 24 from Bonnie Scotland got my Ouya a couple of weeks ago im an avid gamer liked them since I was young like 2 or 3 thanks to my brother and the trend has never stopped only grew I honestly had little to no interest in Ouya but after I began to tinker with the idea of using a spare PC to make a pure emulator system for my TV I then came across the Ouya and things you can do - WOW not looked back best 100 pound I ever spent even SPMC has now became my main mode for TV. Best gaming memory's really from the SNES to PSX age - What exactly has happened to gaming now a days out of hundreds of new games only 1 or 2 are really good on mainstream systems even PC's are losing there way :s anyways there's my boring story :D

Hiya, my name is David. I live in Ireland, and I have actually been a gamer for a very small amount of time compared to others. I have been playing games for nearly seven years, and I suppose you could say I have been in the "hardcore gaming" scene for about 3 years now. I'm still at school, and though I don't do very many subjects about game development, I really, really, really hope that I can get frips with Construct 2, or band together with some other gaming enthusiasts so I can start making games. I have a ton of scrutinises and developed ideas in my head I am just waiting to release from my mind.

Then I have Wii U and 3DS [NNID: Chakaloco] feel free to add me if you like. But most of the time I have my Ouya controller in my hands. I play dungeon crawler games and try new free games!

When I play Ouya alone I usually listen trance, house, etc same time. Not mainstream but those Indie artists from youtube and soundcloud.

Hi, I'm Dan. I'm 28 and live in Washington State (US). I might be as casual a gamer as is possible. Growing up I played some PC games but never really messed with consoles all that much. I got an Ouya around the same time I started getting more interested in indie games. My favorite studios/developers these days are Vlambeer, Santa Ragione, Matt Thorson, Locomalito, Landon Podbielski, and the Arcane Kids.

26 years old from Ohio. My real first name idI've had an ouya since April when I bought a used kickstarter model off Amazon, which is nice to have, I kinda wish id shelled out for a newer one with some fixes.

I've wanted to look into development, as I hadn't tried making a game since using rpgmaker 2000, but I had a hard enough time making a worthy game with it that I've kinda been intimidated to try it now in addition to working on music. A project known as my forum and twitter namesake from long before joining this forum, which is a modification of a goofy nickname I acquired from some old friends of mine, and just dealing with life, in the mean time I've been glad to be a supporter of the games. I also own a game stick.

Hi,

my name's Timm, I'm 28 years old and from germany. I just bought an OUYA 3 days ago and loving it so far. I followed the development but waited a little while because I didn't own anything with an HDMI input. I still just own a TV with a tube but hopefully that changes in a couple of days :D
I make videos about indie games on my german YouTube channel and hope to get a hold of an Elgato grabber to capture OUYA footage too, so I can record and stream games to hitbox.tv :)

I think about making a game for years now, but I'm easily discouraged and don't know where to start. Maybe the OUYA will change that.

I love indie games and hope the OUYA will live a long life!

Welcome to the forum sir! this is where the party is!

Also my introduction!

Hi everyone, I'm a 25 year old dude living in Montreal Canada. I'm a busy guy but when I have time to play video games, OUYA is my choice. My g-f bought me a retail version of the console back in September 2013, because it looked like something I would enjoy... and damn do I ever enjoy it! I have purchased like 400$ of games so far so... yea. Probably haven't played most of the games that I have but that doesn't matter.

If anyone is in mtl and wants to hang out and play games, I'm totally in. See y'all on the flippity flop.

Hello,
My name is James, I'm not a ouya owner yet, but I am looking to be soon... I was thinking of waiting to see what this game system has to offer first....My neighbor does own one and he plays a lot with it. He does allow me to play it as well when I have time... I do alot of traveling with my job and that keeps alway from playing. I hope this game system is much more fun than an xbox or a playstation. I,m just looking for something that is more affordable to play with. Thanks...

Hello OUYAforum (winks towards RiotingSpectre),

I am a content administrator for GBAtemp.net, currently wearing the hat of OUYA video game reviewer. I've always been a huge proponent of homebrew and Indie gaming development. I was heavily involved in the GBA scene (towards the end) and the entirety of the DS scene. During that time I helped to get a lot of projects completed through beta testing and by raising general awareness. I've hacked and used homebrew on pretty much everything I can get my hands on. The OUYA seemed like a natural fit for me, so last year I picked up the limited white OUYA. I've been enjoying it ever since.

Hi everyone. New Ouya user. Been into home-brew games and the like for quite some time. Really took off with it when the Sega Dreamcast came out. Games, Music and Computersare pretty much my three main hobbies at the moment. I like taking my machines and hacking/modding/exploiting etc etc. I was able to root the ouya with no problem and install the play store and get it up and running, but I haven't downloaded are tried anything yet. I'd like to probably get into that aspect more and more into maybe looking into like custom launchers, dashboards, (not sure what there called in the Ouya) etc etc. Really making your Ouya Personalized. At the same time I got my Ouya I got two gamesticks and right away put cfw 1.4 on them which makes then pretty much droid 4.1 sticks. Been having fun with them so much that I haven't really messed with my Ouya. Ran through Xbmc on Ouya a little to see how it worked/s. Seemed to work fine. Other then that I'm sure I'll have some more questions in the future, as I have ideas of things I'd
like to do with the Ouya, and I'm not sure whether there possible or not, so with that said I'll ask questions when I need answers. lol!!

A very exhausted part of actions that came across as just a work aholic and what not.

Hello to all the forum membres !!!

My name is Fran, I´m from Spain and I am 43.

I have the OUYA about two years ago, but I just discovered this forum only a few days ago. I enjoy with retro style games ( well, at 43, it could be said that I am also a little retro hahaha ).

I started programming with the early 8-bit micro computers, more exactly with the ZX Spectrum 48k, with I made some little games in basic. Later I continued making software on the PC, some serious software for my work (databases, work managing etc) and some games using DIV Games Studio for MS-DOS. Then came some years that I had very little time to program (work, family, etc), till 2012 when I started to develop for Android devices.

Now I have some apps and games on GooglePlay and AppStore, and I recently published my very first game to the OUYA that you can see in this thread http://ouyaforum.com/showthread.php?16786-Angry-Ranook-Underground-Developments&highlight=ranook and my wish is to continue developing for the OUYA (and Razer when it arrives).

Well, no more speaking by now, that´s a long introducing post hahaha.

Regards,
Fran

So, I'm late to the party it would seem! I heard about the OUYA back in the day, but didn't manage to get one until a few weeks ago off of Ebay! Gotta say... as a retro gamer, I'm in heaven with all of the emulators. :D

I've been gaming since the days of pong in the 1970's, and have multiple systems in my collection. Were I forced to choose a fave(s), I would put the TurboGrafX-16 and the Dreamcast on the top of the list.

When I'm not playing games, I'm heavily involved in community theatre where I live. I've acted in dozens of shows over the years, and love the opportunity to make someone laugh/smile. You never know what an audience member is dealing with, going through, etc... Offering them an escape, a chance to go someplace else for a few hours and just forget life... that could be just what they need to get through whatever. Just like my sig says... "making the world a better place... one laugh at a time". I'm also on staff with the Official Alabama Renaissance Faire, as a living history reenactor. I love the medieval/renaissance time period, and enjoy sharing that love with others. Also, I work with teens and college kids... doing my best to help them make the right choices, while giving them positive experiences that they can hopefully carry through the rest of their lives.

Still getting a handle on this amazing little machine and all it can do. :)

Thanks... radical is a good choice for a description. I've been attracted to systems that most of the rest of the world passes up on it seems. I was like the only one I knew that bought a TurboGrafx-16 machine. I was one of the few who bought an Atari Jaguar... the underappreciated systems or those that just didn't sell well, I find myself attracted to them as much or more than the popular ones.
