    lol sorry peeps, you're being invaded by PSL'ers and I'm another one. It's all down to Plaxi and Funar.

    So about me... I'm old enough that my childhood years were spent hardcore gaming on our Atari 2600 (a console is not a proper console unless it has a certain amount of wood panelling ;) ) from there went to PC, Sega Megadrive with CD attachment, PSP, PS1, 2, 3 & 4. Looking back it's astounding just how far games and gaming has come in what feels like such a short time.

    I started online gaming later in 2007 on the PS3 with Motorstorm. Wish they'd turn the servers back on for it. From that onto BP and I eventually joined up with the motley bunch that are PSL. It was nice to be around people that were as funny in the head as I am :crazy: Ended up becoming an admin and have control of the ban stick/hammer/tazer which means I get to indulge my vendetta against all spammers. I can get quite ranty about them so best not to say the words 'Fifa coins' or 'genuine Raybans' to me! :rant:

    Going through a bit of a gaming slump at the moment and not really playing anything. However, despite that I've still managed to fill the sodding hard drive. The game to end the slump is Just Cause 3. After playing it 4 times at EGX last month I can confirm it's fecking awesome. Roll on Dec 1st!!

    Stand out games/franchises for me over the years have been GTA, FFVII, Burnout, MS, Mass Effect, Uncharted.... I'm sure there's many more I've forgotten but it's been a long week and my brain has already checked out for the weekend (plus this is the second time I'm typing this as my sodding laptop battery died just as I got to the end. Amazed I remember most of what I typed originally!!).

    :)

    Welcome, @Bluepip :wave:

    We're pretty lucky here, we don't get too many spammers (touch wood). We've had the occasional one get through. The few others end up in the user approval queue and get deleted by me before anyone else ever sees anything. :)

    Several of the Seniors have upgraded to 2Tb drives. I got this one

    2Tb Hard Drive from Amazon

    It's pretty easy to do, there's a thread about it here

    PS4 - Upgrading PS4 harddrive

    Thanks for the welcomes.


    I'm excited by the prospect but hoping they are true to the original and don't tweak anything core like the storyline/characters/battle system. Just want PS4 graphics and sound with everything else kept the same.


    Ah user approval. We just let everyone in and then I get to run amok, banning people at will. It's very satisfying :D


    Ooh nice. Been thinking about upgrading these past few days and that looks a good one. Upgraded my PS3 to a 640gb a few years back and it was so much better. Got a week off work coming up so will add this to my 'to do' list.


    Just for fun, and eating of course. I have an allotment so grow other things too but onions are my fav :D

    No, not user approval as such, we haven't got it enabled here. Anyone who looks spammy though will automatically be put into this.

    Was a laugh. Have missed being on BP. I'll need to sort my old headset out properly for next time but it was probably a good thing you weren't subjected to me on comms :D

    Hi @Bluepip and welcome

    I recently fired up my old ps2 with ps1 worms with my nephew and I was rather surprised at how bad it looks compared to newer games - but damn it was fun playing it again - All hail the Holy Hand Grenade :bow:

    Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone :)

    Haha, that brings back memories. Sheep! I used to feel so sorry for the poor little sheep bouncing their way along before exploding. Was funny though :D
