Naw no worries, I'm not the best at intros either.. which is funny seeing as I moderate this section. xD; It's just hard to talk about yourself sometimes, aha. Welcome to PokeCommunity though, Major! :)
That's really awesome and as our other wonderful posters said, you'll fit perfectly into the Pixel Art subforum of the Art & Design board. Did you make your avatar? I'm new to Fire Emblem so I can't really tell if that's an official portrait or something you made, but it's lovely. On that note though, Awakening is worth the money, right? I've heard so, so many good things about it so I just can't wait to finally be able to play it. Chose Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity over Fire Emblem but since I pretty much beat all of PMD, Awakening will be next on my list~! People like you make me so excited to try it!
Four instruments?! That's quite impressive.. I can't even manage one. :( The piano is amazing though and I'd love to learn to play it. Too bad buying one or paying for classes is just ridiculously expensive, sigh.
But brownie points to you for liking the third gen since it's amazing! People argue it's not the best but I beg to differ, haha. It was so fun and the contests included made it that much more of a time-burner. Like JNathan said, the Advance Generation board will be perfect for you as a third generation fan! Of course, Emulation also houses everything ROM hacking-related too, including tools, resources, and help threads among others.
Enjoy your stay on PokeCommunity! n~n
