    TMNTSPYVSSPY First time out of the vault

    Apr 23, 2014
    Lol, It started when me and my friend were making E-mails for online video games... We both based ours off of things that were in our View range. He saw a gun, so his was gun related. I looked over and saw 2 NES cartridges, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Spy Vs Spy. I just put the two together and its been that since. It is alot better than my old one tho... Invader JiM was terrible

    My username is pretty self-explanatory. FO is obviously Fallout and "Vet" is actually a twofold reference. First, I've played and beaten both FO1 and FO2 several times, therefor I consider myself a veteran of the series. Second, I have been a fan since the original Fallout game's release just about (I was *slightly* late in discovering the game, but not by much--Fallout 2 wasn't quite out yet!). So, I'm one of those old school fallout fans--also making me, in my eyes, a veteran of the series (and it also kinda shows my age, LOL).

    I did briefly consider using the username SergeantDornan, but I decided against it, deeming FOvet to be a superior username :)

    Sano - Sanosuke Sagara (Rurouni Kenshin)
    naos - hidden pun for naze (shitty)

    The Shitty Sanosuke. (that got his ass kicked by Saito on the first volume i read)

    I was lazy when creating my profile, really should find a way to change it to something more creative.

    BN told me my username was the worst, so I offered my current User name, and that's what he changed it to. :cool:

    *Obviously "Gizmo" was taken early at NMA, but Gizmo hasn't logged in for years [afaik]; My original user name was 'Gizmo.'

    Gizmojunk is the name of some accounts where I store Fallout related media and fan-art.

    It's an abbreviation of 4 early usernames I used on and off. Sat in class, new idea, "zghe" "ehgz" etc, "zegh" had a nice space-evil-alien ring to it, sortof cheesy ":V"
    8578 are just numericals for "zegh" according to whatever, extremely pretentious, I know, but I got used to it, and I still like the space-evil-alien-cheese ring to it :V

    To be honest, makes me think of pirates, not space aliens.

    No, really. Pirates! =D When I read your name, I always pronounce it in my head like "Zeff", so that's why. =)

    My name was bestowed upon me by the celestial gods when they realised that I hate Hakunin's useless face.

    Either that or it was the only thing I could think of.

    BN changed it from Gizmo. [ my current, at my suggestion.]

    —note the '.'; said it was "the worst username he'd ever saw".

    See... Gizmo was of course already taken years before I arrived, but had been dormant for years, so I took Gizmo. /with a dot.
