Hey there, I'm Goudge!

Discussion in 'Introductions' started by Goudge ✦, Jul 13, 2019.

  1. Hey everyone! I'm Goudge, and I first started playing Mineplex back in 2014. Sadly, a lot of my old friends from back in the day have moved on to other things, so it would be fantastic to meet some new players!

    Here's a little bit about me: I am 17 years old, and I'm from Canada. Some of my hobbies outside of gaming include graphic design, photography, music production, and filmmaking, and after high school I hope to eventually go to law school. I'm a huge movie nerd, so if you ever needs movie suggestions let me know! My favourite sports are ice hockey, soccer (football), tennis, table tennis, and badminton. My favourite games on Mineplex are Survival Games, Cake Wars, Draw My Thing, Micro Battles, and Turf Wars. You can usually find me playing one of these games, posting on the forums, or just chilling in the lobby.

    I would love to get to know more of you, so feel free to reply with a little bit about yourself, and don't hesitate to add me as a friend on the forums or in-game! I don't bite.
    I hope to see everyone around! [​IMG]

  2. Hello there and welcome to the forums!

    I've seen you around on the forums quite a bit these past few days. I'm glad to see that you're also enjoying it! I'm also 17 and enjoy watching Youtube, going for walks, and swimming, and I also volunteer twice a week at a hospital. I've never been as good at table tennis as I am at Wii's rendition of table tennis but I'm not bad. My favorite Mineplex game right now is Skywars, what's not to love, it's a classic. Feel free to message me if you ever have any questions or want to play anything. As always, make sure to check the rules to avoid receiving any unexpected punishments since your account is new to the forums, and I'll see you around! :)

  3. Hey Goudge! Nice to see you on back on Mineplex. I've seen you in Lobby 1 and active a lot on the forums.

    My name is Zomaholic, but people just call me Zom. I'm 20 years old from England.
    I have many hobbies most of which are sporty. I love playing cricket and rugby for my towns team and I do that every weekend. Like you, I'm a HUGE movie nerd and love all types of movies!

    My favourite games to play on Mineplex are Cake Wars, Sky Wars and Bridges so I hope I get to see you in some of them sometime :D


    Usually I'm in lobby 1 or playing those games with my friends so feel free to friend me and we're always open to new people joining our party so don't be afraid to ask.

    ~ Zom

  4. Hey!

    Welcome back to the server! My name's Citrin, I'm 16 years old, and you can most likely find me in Lobby-1, Nano Games, Survival Games, or on the forums! Hockey is also my favorite sport, as I play it, too bad I'm not from Canada though because it's a lot more popular over there. Personally, I'm a fan of the Blackhawks (home team), and I was just wondering what team do you follow most?

  5. Thanks! That's super cool that you volunteer at a hospital, I actually have a friend who does the same thing. I'm volunteering on a political campaign right now, which is also very exciting. I absolutely LOVE Wii sports, in fact my friends come to my house at lunch pretty much every day to play it. What a classic game! Let's play something sometime!

    It's nice to meet you! I see you around all the time as well. We absolutely need to geek out about movies together sometime, I'm super curious what your favourites are! I added you as a friend, we should play some Cake Wars or something. Cheers!

    Hey Citrin, thank you! That's awesome that you play hockey. What position do you play? My favourite team is the Montreal Canadiens, although to be honest it's tough to be a fan of them while they're trading away a lot of their star players. I even got to go to a game between the Habs and the Canucks, which was really cool. See you around!

  6. I'm so down for that, I'll accept when I'm next online!

    My favourites are anything sci-fi or superhero related for sure! My favourite trilogy has got to be the Dark Knight trilogy, but the MCU over the DCU any day. How about you?

  7. Hi!

    Welcome to the Mineplex forums! I’m stephentries, a moderator on the Mineplex network. I’ve also been playing Mineplex since 2014! I remember the day very well, December 11th 2014. I always remember dates that meant a lot to me and impacted my life in a big way. A lot of my friends from back in the day have moved on too which is quite sad:(

    Some things about me; I’m a 15 year old girl, from England and I really like playing Nintendo games (more specifically Zelda). I love to watch movies at the cinema with my best friend but unless you like horror movies I suggest not asking me for my recommendations haha. My favourite things to do on Mineplex is speak to my friends, interact with the community and play Cake Wars:D

    Hope you enjoy scrolling through our forums!

  8. That's awesome! I love The Dark Knight Trilogy as well, and Christopher Nolan is definitely in my top five favourite directors along with Edgar Wright, Denis Villeneuve, David Fincher, and Taika Waititi. I definitely prefer MCU as well. Some of my favourite films are Hot Fuzz, Zodiac, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Prisoners, Baby Driver, and many more!

    Thanks for the welcome! I was an active member on the Enjin forums for many years, and I feel like I definitely saw your name on there at some point. That's awesome that you've become a moderator!

    I haven't seen too many horror movies, but I'm hoping to go see Midsommar in theatres soon! Have you seen it?
    Anyways, we should play Cake Wars some time!! Cheers.

  9. Omg that's so weird I literally watched baby driver and Hot Fuzz in the last 3 days!
    I love Taika Waititi, such a good director and funny man! I love What We Do In The Shadows, and of course Thor Ragnarok. If you haven't already I recommend watching the Ted Talk he did, it's really entertaining!

  10. I haven’t seen Midsommar yet however I’m planning on going to see it very soon! I’ve just come out of an Annabelle showing at my local cinema. And yes we really should! Friend me in-game:D
     
    Posted Jul 13, 2019
  11. That's such a cool coincidence! I absolutely love those films and all of Edgar Wright's other work. What did you think of them? Taika is such a cool guy! I agree. And I have actually seen his Ted Talk, it's super interesting! If you liked WWDITS and Ragnarok, I would strongly reccomend "Hunt For the Wilderpeople" which is, in my opinion, Taika's best film and New Zealand's highest grossing film!

    That's awesome, I'm really excited to see Midsommar soon as well. I've never seen any Annabelle films, as even the trailers freak me out a lot, but maybe I'll check them out! I added you in-game :)

  12. Oh damn, I didn't know that about Hunt for the Wilderpeople, I must watch that soon.

    And I love Edgar Wrights work, he did the cornetto trilogy (if I'm not mistaken) and they're so freaking good!!

  13. Yeah, it is most definitely worth a watch. The whole story is super quirky yet epic, the comedy is hysterically funny, and there are some great performances from Taika himself, Sam Niell, and the rest of the cast. I adore the Cornetto trilogy as well! Being British, do you think you understand/appreciate the humour of those films more than others would? Some of the jokes definitely go over my head because they're so exclusively British.

  14. Definitely. British humour compared to American humour is so much different and since they're all set in England I'm sure some of the slang and the jokes are a little hard to interpret, just like when I watch some movies set in America. I don't think the misunderstanding takes that much away from the movies though but being from England I definitely appreciate them more, especially since the movie industry is largely dominated by movies set in America.

    Speaking of British films, do you enjoy/ ever seen the James Bond series?

  15. That's pretty much what I would expect. I definitely still appreciate them, (Hot Fuzz is my all-time favourite film, after all) but some of the slang definitely goes over my head. Even the name "Cornetto" itself– I know it's a brand of icecream, but it took me a while to figure that out because we don't have them here in North America. With the Cornetto trilogy I do understand and appreciate almost all of the humour, but I have seen some British humour that I just can't quite appreciate. For example, I'm a huge fan of The Office (U.S.) but I really can't get into the British version for whatever reason.

    I'm a little ashamed to admit I've only ever seen Skyfall, although I really loved that film. Casino Royale has been something I've been meaning to watch for a while now, and I'm hoping to see Bond 25 when it comes out. Which other Bond films would you recommend?

  16. Hey!
    I have also been playing for a long time with friends some of which have moved on however I am from the uk so I’m not sure we will ever meet in mineplex
    I am 18 and I enjoy hockey and sailing on my spare time
     
    Posted Jul 14, 2019
  17. Hot fuzz is definitely one of my favourites too. Oh man you guys don't have Cornettos, you're missing out.

    In terms of James Bond I would say all of them but.. yeah

    I'd recommend all the Daniel Craig one's in order since they're the best imo

  18. That's super cool, it's not every day that you meed someone from the UK who likes hockey! What's your favourite team?

    Yeah I really want to try Cornettos! I might be travelling to Switzerland next summer, and if I do I'll definitely try to get my hands on some.

    And thanks for the recommendation, I'll certainly check them out! I absolutely adore the cinematographer Roger Deakins who shot Skyfall, and I've heard the cinematography in the other Craig films is stellar as well.

  19. Philadelphia Flyers Are my favourite team what about yours
     
    Posted Jul 14, 2019
  20. Oh man Switzerland?? The icecream in mainland Europe is mindblowing, I can't get enough of it, and I'm not usually a big fan of ice cream.

    I have to agree the cinematography in Skyfall, especially in that opening sequence is beyond words, and yes, you're absolutely right in the other films it's just as good
