    Hello TurboSlug beaming down and looking for Ally status.

    My first spawn point was 41 years ago and I have set up base camp in the depths of Surrey, until further notice, I currently obtain credits by carrying out tasks for a major manufacturer of fossil burning machines which are largely fitted to two wheeled personal transportation systems that many humans tend to operate at extreme velocities, I also enjoy exploring the planets marine life with the aid of the ingenious self contained underwater breathing apparatus! and have a keen interest in the developments of emerging technologies this planet is currently producing.

    I was there at the birth of video gaming and have watched it grow and flourish into the money making beast it is today :roll: , past consoles include SNES, PS1, PS2 and currently the mighty PS3 and PSP.

    I can't promise that future posts will make much more sense, but those who know me will confirm this is not unusual, but I will happily exchange virtual bullets, paint, lasers, rockets etc... in a friendly game of something I own.

    So prod away and I hope to see you before the apocalypse, just make sure you have your towel with you.

    Hey Turbo good of you to drop in. Great post too. I currently live on the site courtesy of tapatalk from Android (other platforms available). Give it a try, it's great.

    Anyway back on topic. Are you going to join us on Killzone 3 soon? We're pining. Ok, well missing you at least :D

    Do we vouch for allies? If we do he has mine 8-)

    Welcome, Turbo! :D

    Now, where the hell have you been?! :grandpa:

    There we all are, week after week on Killzone 3 and every time to stand us up. OK, your PS3 broke at one but we've seen you online since then and still you have shunned us. Don't you love us anymore? :cry:

    Glad you found us over here. So, you would like Ally status? Well, I'm sure we can do that for you, you're well known enough by folk over here. You'll have to come back and post again though and tell us some more details of your gaming first. :evil:

    So, do tell us a bit more about your Playstation gaming over the years. We all know you play Killzone (and we hope you'll be on this week?). What else have you played over the years? Any favourites? What about duff games you regret picking up?

    I've had the pleasure of meeting Turbo and the lovely Mrs Turbo. If I recall it was in the Marquis of Granby on Carnaby Street in London for an OAP mini-meet a few years back. Top guy and he certainly gets my vouch. :thumbup:

    What a warm welcome, as warm as the puddle I'm sat in right now!

    Ah blessed is the PlayTV for you will make people think you're online when you're actually in another country enjoying a nice earthquake :lol: and yes a few PS3's later and all seems to be stable.....for now! however fret not Chancellor Martok I'll be on KZ this Wednesday eve.

    Let me offer a different reply to you're Playstation question with my gaming first, that would be Pong on an early home console who's name escapes me, but gaming highlights have got to be wasting hours on Nintendo's Donkey Kong Game and Watch as a nipper :D, Gandstands Firefox with it's well worn and squeaky fire button, long nights of Street Fighter and of all things Unirally on the SNES, and I laugh now when I look back to how awestruck me and a friend were at the draw distances on Jumping Flash when you jumped to another platform :lol: Playstation wise not sure I have any duff games although I did buy Rise of the Robots :oops: but all time defining moment for me was discovering first person shooters in the form of Killzone and the online shenanigans that came with it, I'd steered clear of them until that point!

    The name of the pub escapes me as many a beer was dispatched, but I suspect you're right, but you forget our most recent meet in Oxford! I'm pretty sure we still have a couple of rocket balloon's somewhere?

    Nanoo nanoo

    EDIT: just found on YouTube!!!

    Rise of the Robots was cool! Myself and my brother beat each other to death on that game although certain moves where outlawed as the shared keyboard only worked with four keys max. :?

    Glad to here we'll be seeing you on Killzone later, yay! My recollection of Oxford is slightly muddy. I remember being ravaged by Claw as I arrived and Herman looking dapper in his checked shirt. :oops: Oh and vaguely didn't someone lose their phone?

    I've taken the liberty of greening you up.
