    To those that who know me hi (again) and get the swearbox ready for battlefield

    For all those that are yet to come:-

    My name is Roger, i'm 47 and from Swansea
    Currently self employed as a landscape gardener and i have a great partner called Debbie and four teenage sons (all of whom game and cost me an absolute fortune)

    Gaming history probably go's back to the early to mid seventies, when one christmas i woke to find a new, hi tech games console under the tree and subsequently spent the next few weeks playing nothing but "pong", on this new space age machine :lol:
    My next real gaming came when i first discovered SPACE INVADERS, and would spend hours (plus a lot of pocket money) sitting at the machine in my local cafe, and usually waiting for Dill (cafe owner) to chuck us out.

    As with a lot of people of a similar age, i then went on to the spectrum ( Mmm- rubber keys :oops: ) closely followed by the commodore and then the Amiga500, which incidentally had the favourite game from my early post teenage years- Gods!!

    Kind of lost interest in gaming for a few years after the Amiga as real life, more specifically girls, seemed to be the only thing i could think of, well, girls and getting plastered :woot:
    Anyway, after the honeymoon period was over, so to speak, i got back into gaming through various consoles such as the nintendo, megadrive, saturn etc, until my eyes were opened to the wonders of playstation and that incredibly "Trippy" title called wipeout.
    Trust me on this guys, the worst thing that you can do after an all night rave, is spend the next three or four hours playing wipeout in the vain attempt to get even remotely tired.
    It just doesn't work and also gives you a massive headache :crazy:

    OK! back on topic, the PSone was followed by the PS2 and subsequently, my machine of choice nowadays, the PS3.

    You'll find me playing BF3 most nights, but i'm also partial to some of the blops custom games and also rpg's such as Skyrim and Fallout.

    As the intro title says, i am applying for "Ally" status and will be more than happy if accepted. :D

    Thanks for reading

    Roger

    Hi Roger, Are most of the OAPS playing the new close combat maps or are you still on the older ones. I really need to try and get back into it.

    Hey buddy! long time no see (on battlefield)

    It's a bit of a mix really and all depends who's on and if they have the DLC or not.
    That said, with it being double xp all next week, i'm pretty sure that a lot of the premium members will be hammering those close quarters maps.
    with the opportunity to score a minimum of 20,000 points every game, they'll probably want to make the most of it :woot:

    Hi Rog, great post!

    I enjoyed Space Invaders but my love went to Galaxians and the Discs of Tron when in the arcade in Torquay.

    I totally know what you mean about melting ones brain further by playing Wipeout after an all nighter. Wow those where the days, well I think they were I don't rightly remember.

    20K a round! That's insane! :wtf:

    Those certainly were the days halo, my kids tend to think that i;ve never had a life or done anything that wasn't "dad like"

    Huh, if only they knew what i used to get up, they'd probably never speak to me again, that said if i ever thought that any of my boys behaved even remotely like i did, then i can guarantee you that they'd have a good clip around the ear. :o

    As the saying go's- do as i say, not as i do (god i'm a hypocrite :lol: )

    with regards the points available for BF3, 20,000 is a minimum on those CQ maps, it's not unusual to score well in excess of 50,000 points when you've added the bonuses :shock:

    Martok-
    Excellent intro post, Roger. :thumbup:

    It's good to have you on-board as an Ally. :)

    We may well pick up the Premium extras especially if Halo & I can share the cost as Wilks has indicated.

    See you online soon!

    :rofl:

    Classic. My son & I explained to my wife what tea bagging was the other day, and she was not impressed. She said why would you do that act of degradation to a friend?

    Women eh? :roll: What do they know.

    Up until a year ago, i also had never heard of it.

    I could never work out why my kids were laughing so much every time they killed me on cod, and did what i thought was nothing more than a stupid little dance on my corpse. :?

    This went on for weeks, until i asked my eldest, what's with the funny dance at the end!?

    I tell you what mate, there's no better feeling than getting your revenge and shouting up the stairs to them

    "How do you like them apples then :lol:

    Exactly. I love the taunts in Uncharted, and the dances in SOCOM, but nothing compares to the crouch/stand/crouch/stand etc for the total humiliation. Ive seen some prone on the face animations, but its still the humble teabag that gets a chortle from me every time.

    I remember tea bagging from my time spent playing counter strike on the pc.

    I also like to hunt and teabag people who take my tags on BF3, no wonder my kdr is so low

    Do people not realise that teabagging Is actually a gay sex act that gay men perform on other gay men?


    But having said that It can be quite funny to teabag clan mates ingame :)

    Did not know that. Saw a grumble flick where a bloke was with a girl doing it once, but I never knew its origins was brought to us from the people who bowl from the pavillion end.
