Hello SNR members,

Lovely to make your acquaintance. My name is Roots (not in real life though:)). I'm applying for full membership of Senior Gamers.
I'm 49 years old, and have been gaming most of my adult life. Like many, I've gamed since the days of Binatone, and still own my ZX81, Spectrum, Master System, Mega drive etc, all kept safely in the loft:).

I'm still an avid gamer and will sometimes spend up to 9 hours a day gaming, not that it makes me any better mind you:D.
I'm currently playing Destiny, and spend a lot of time on there, so that is my fave game at the moment. I also have around 10 trophies left to get that will let me platinum Watch Dogs, Shadowfall & Last Of Us Remastered. I do like trying to platinum games that I really enjoy.

I actually heard about this site from a current member, and have now finally got around to having a look around, and I do like what I see so far. I'm not into serious competitive gaming, and just like to game for fun.

I'm married and have been for the last 10 years, and have been with the same person for 20:shock::D. She doesn't mind me gaming, so I can pretty much game whenever i want.

I hope to game with some of you guys, and hope to become a productive member of this community. My PSN is: Rootsrockers, please add me if you like:)

Kind Regards

Roots

Hey @Rootsrockers, nice to meet you! Great intro too. :)

I'm sure there will be plenty of questions soon, but for now make yourself comfy. It's good here.

Will send a friends request now. See you on Destiny soon! :D

Hey Roots, nice to meet you. I'm also pretty hooked on Destiny, it's the only game thus far to entice me away from BF4.
Let us know how you get on with the Vault of Glass. A group of us SNRs are attempting it and have so far spent most of the time shovelling holes to bury ourselves in. Well, apart from @yinkin who prefers to throw himself off the side instead even though the shovels were his idea.

Hi @Rootsrockers :waving:

Welcome to the site, I hope you will get to feel at home here.

I'm applying for full membership of Senior Gamers.
Good man! :1thumbup:So, we like to game with prospective new members to get to know them (and they us). Make sure you get folks who do play with you to stick a vouch into your intro thread to speed things along.

still own my ZX81, Spectrum, Master System, Mega drive etc, all kept safely in the loft
Blimey! I got rid of mine a long time ago. Still remember the ZX81 with its thump-sensitive keyboard and the ZX Spectrum with it's rubbery one.

I actually heard about this site from a current member
So who is it? What dirt do you have to spill on this member? ;)

Hope to see you online soon! :)

Hi Plaxinator,

The Vault went well. I have already done it once before, and we managed to get to the last boss again last night. We stopped there as it was very time consuming and one person rage quit due to the jumping section:rant::shock:. TBH, I am not the greatest gamer and am more of a follower than a leader. I have other gaming friends who have kindly helped each other through it. One particular friend has done it several times. I will be more than happy to lend my assistance and help any SNR members with my limited knowledge. It's a pleasure to meet you and look forward to gaming with you soon:)

Hello NVranya,

Nice to make your acquaintance. Yes, there's definitely much more than Destiny:). I have Far Cry 4 on pre-order and watched the amazing Alpha of Arkham Knight at EGX a few weeks ago, a game that will definitely be on my pre-order list:).

Look forward to gaming with you soon.

Hello Martok,

Absolutely no worries. I'm hoping to finish the last boss tonight on Vault in Destiny. From then I'm hoping if it's okay to jump in with some of the members who play Destiny.

The member who told me about the site is: themaskedmarvel, I have gamed with him for quite a while now, and we occasionally meet up in real life:). Unfortunately the only dirt I can dish on him is that he's a really nice guy, but just happens to be a bullet magnet, tank magnet or zombie magnet...you get my drift:D

I will send him a message on PSN later and ask if he would kindly vouch for me. Hope to game with you soon.

Hello Spruijt,

I brought my own bean bag, but I may need help getting up out of it to get to the Bourbons and Custard Creams:oldgamer:

Look forward to gaming with you.

Hello Skarpar,

Nice to make your acquaintance too:) The Vex are the bane of my life. The Minotaurs and Hobgoblins are also high on my list of annoying things:D.
Look forward to gaming with you soon.

Hello Pafkes,
Thank you for the welcome:). I'm always scavenging around for food and beverages, and it is indeed handy to know where to come for these particular supplies. You will be seeing me soon:grandpa:. Look forward to gaming with you.
