    A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    Life has changed alot for me in the last few years. I've started afresh, with a move out of a stressful career and into the calm of the countryside.

    The move was prompted by a period of illness brought on by that career, along with a job offer for my wife - which she was keen to accept. We relocated to Cheshire with our dog, Poppy. Life is great up here, although hugely different to our lives in London.

    I started gaming under the name Logan about six months ago when I began playing Starcraft II - and have made new friends who have no idea who Colt was. Frankly, neither do I. Life feels new and exciting for me and my family. Whilst I'm not at all certain what the future holds, I am sure of one thing - I'll never be the person I was 10 years ago, when I first started playing online and called myself Colt Seavers.

    So, I have taken the decision to ditch Colt: a new life; a complete and fresh start after a long struggle to escape the stresses of the old one.

    I wasn't sure whether to change my forum account for fear of confusing people - but I've changed a hell of alot more than my gamer tag over these last couple of years, so in that context, the name change appeals.

    I hope it won't cause too much confusion; and I'm not asking anyone to stop calling me Colt (or of course, Mark ) But I do want to move on and leave the past behind me.

    The reason I chose Logan is pretty deep and a little dull to explain, so here's a Trailor for one of my favourite Sci-Fi films - Logan's Run - which contains the simple answer. New life and determination.





    TL,DR - From now on I will be using the name Logan for all my online gaming activities because I prefer it to Colt and have had a fresh start in all other areas of my life. kthnxbai.

    Well, hugs to Colt, and 'lo to Logan (or... y'know... stuff).
    Seems pretty fine to me, a chap can call himself what he likes without anyone worrying.
    =) and finally, Hooray, Logan's Run!

    Completely understandable mate. A fresh start deserves a fresh name, without all the things that stick to the old name.

    So:

    Aloha and welcome to PlayStuff, Logan

    Lo and welcome Logan. Going to take a while to adjust to the new moniker so I'll prolly just call you Mark in the meantime.

    Glad you're comfortable enough with your new alias to share the change with us. I hope it heralds a happier, healthier period in your life than the name Colt did.

    Coincidentally, as I opened this thread on my phone I looked down and saw this:

    Re: A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    I celebrated my Sleepshop birthday almost 10 years ago (the film has 30 as the maximum age before you have to go to a 'sleepshop' and be killed but I found out later that the book had everyone being killed at 21).

    Anyhoo, welcome to Playstuff Logan, I shall call you Spoff, Mark, Colt, Logan, Logie or whatever else I is the first thing that comes to mind when I'm in mid-battle on vent.

    (Mac is pretty much the only person I consistently call the same thing, everyone else just gets whatever garbled mix of realname, nickname, gamername spews from my mouth in the heat of battle)

    By the way - not just a great film - it also has an awesome soundtrack by The Omen, Planet of the Apes and many more, composer Jerry Goldsmith Tastes like this:



    He composed scores for such noteworthy films as The Sand Pebbles, Planet of the Apes, Patton, Chinatown, The Wind and the Lion, The Omen, The Boys from Brazil, Alien, Poltergeist, Gremlins, Hoosiers, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Rudy, Air Force One, L.A. Confidential, Mulan, The Mummy, three Rambo films, and five Star Trek films. He was nominated for six Grammy Awards, nine Golden Globes, four BAFTAs, and seventeen Academy Awards. In 1977 he was awarded an Oscar for The Omen.
    He collaborated with some of the most prolific directors in film history, including Robert Wise (The Sand Pebbles, Star Trek: The Motion Picture), Howard Hawks (Rio Lobo), Otto Preminger (In Harm's Way), Joe Dante (Gremlins, The 'Burbs, Small Soldiers), Roman Polanski (Chinatown), Ridley Scott (Alien, Legend), Steven Spielberg (Poltergeist, Twilight Zone: The Movie), and Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Basic Instinct). However, his most notable collaboration was arguably that with Franklin J. Schaffner, for whom Goldsmith scored such films as Planet of the Apes, Patton, Papillon, and The Boys from Brazil.

    Re: A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    Oh god, Logans Run is what I was thinking of when I was talking to someone about Never Let Me Go, I was trying to think of the name but couldn't for the life of me remember what it was.

    Anyway, good film, good name, good reason for a change, GLHF Logan

    Re: A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    Indeed, may take a little getting used to, always have trouble calling someone anything but the very first name I knew them by (which is why also damn you grom / jennycide )

    So expect to be various things from me for awhile as well, but I should pick it up soon enough ^^

    And the change makes sense, you seemed to be taking the name Logan on fairly universally

    Re: A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    Like I say guys - you're all more than welcome to call me Colt It's more that people I'm meeting afresh now would be confused by me having 2 gaming identities in addition to my real name : and since i'm considering how I can earn a modest living in the area of games or eSports, I wanted no confusion.

    Re: A new life, a new name. Logan > Colt.

    Without sounding like a hippy, the name maketh not the man Colt, Logan? Still the same kind warm fuzzy person underneath

    Now, more about this eSports stuff. I don't really spend lots of time reading lots of things, so I'm missing something A thread to catch up on all this with anywhere?
