    Hi mark, welcome I noticed you registered a while back thanks for the intro :)

    Most of us are currently on BF3 as it's the game of choice here. We do play other games but not as much as BF3.

    Hope to see you online some time :)

    Do you have comms? We like to chat and have a laugh when gaming.

    Yay! You finally posted! :D

    Hi Mark and welcome.

    So you're a real life petrol head and one man army on the consoles? We've a couple of multiplatform owners here. One swears by letting his daughter play minecraft on the XBox. I'm addicted to the pocket edition of it on the mobile. :thumbup: Doom was great in it's day and such a huge leap forwards from Wolfenstein 3D before it.

    My other half (Martok) tells me you found us through the PS forums? So what kind of membership are you after? Full fat or lite? Lite would suit if you're part of another community with full fat being the choice if you wish to make Senior Gamers you home from home. As you're likely already aware we're an easy going community, playing fairly for fun without the need to cheat and with real life taking a precedence.

    Sons of b#&£$%s I played that on Xbox, I suppose it had next to no players when they shut it off though. a rouge group played halo 24/7 just to keep the servers on, that's dedication.

    I certainly did, welcome to our website, Dmk222. :)

    I suggest you read the About section up there ^^^ (and nicely linked by me here). That explains all about us and our membership options so you can make an informed decision.

    Folk will also ask you a bunch of questions in this thread so do keep an eye on it and try to answer these as it helps us to get to know you better. :)

    Hi DMK. So far it sounds like you will fit in. I'm a fellow petrol head, both bikes and cars.

    I may well be online later so if you want to throw me a friend request you'll be able to see what I'm up to and dive in.

    Hope to see you online...

    Hi Mark, nice to meet you more formally!!! :thumbup:

    Im a big 360 fan, and Ive got a PS3 too. My daughter is nuts about Minecraft on the 360, so when she tires of Toy Story see if she'll like that.

    The reason that this community, and others like it, exist is really just a meeting of minds. We're all of similar ages, a lot of us have got kids, and its nice to game and chat with people who are more akin to yourself. Moreover, after a period of time, we all become very firm friends and can guarantee when we turn our console on there will be a friendly face to may be join in a game or two. Lone wolf on Battlefield 3 can be tedious, especially playing against an organised squad. And there are plenty of other games that really are best enjoyed with friends.

    Im going to send out some FR to you if thats ok. Im OAP Slaine on the 360 and Torquemada on the PS3 just to confuse you :? :lol:

    So glad you decided to stop by, and look forward to our first game together!! :mrgreen:

    Hi Dmk222

    I hope you've had a chance to read the About section of our website. So, have you decided on what membership you are after - full or lite?

    Full membership gives you complete access to these forums (currently many are hidden from you), access to our chat system, a space on our VIP list for the BF3 server and more besides. Lite membership (which is generally for members of other communities or those who don't really want to be part of a community) gives a little more access to this website. We request that full members participate in our forums and in some of our gaming evenings plus wear the [SNR] tags in online games. If you are after full membership, then we'll want to play with you online in a games evening or two with comms so we can chat to you and vice versa. Anyway, let us know what you are after.

    We've got another BF3 evening organised for Thursday so maybe you can join us then, though you may find some folk on during the week.

    Edit :- To the others, there isnt an event posted for tonight, is anyone on?

    Dmk, you can game with us on BF3 as a full member (Senior), a lite member (Ally) or just by turning up on our server (no membership at all). What you need to decide is what involvement you would like with our community.

    This community was set up so that a group of like-minded people can get together to chat on these forums about gaming in general and to organise games events which include Battlefield 3 but also other games too (see our Events calendar for what we've run so far). As a community for mature gamers, we are also looking for others who have the same ethos that we do - gaming for fun and not for kill/death ratio or high scores. Essentially, we're looking not just for others to game and chat with but for friendship in the gaming world. That is what becoming a full member (Senior) is all about. Now if you think that is for you i.e. you want to play online with us AND visit our forums regularly to chat AND make friends with us, then that's great. If you just want a casual game on BF3 at times with us and nothing more, then our membership lite (Ally) is what you'll want.

    So, please do re-read our About section, my previous post where I mentioned some of the things you get with full membership and what I've written above and have a think about what you would like. Then when you're ready, do tell us if you want 'Full membership' or 'Ally status'. :)

    Can we not twist your arm to go full fat and help fly the flag for SeniorGamers?

    You get much fresher cake and we'll have a chance to chat about Speedway, is Crump still the man or has it moved on?

    Dont suppose you have GT5 matey> I'm trying to get a few casual races up and running with people in the seniors / Allies. Only problem with half membership is that all the posts regarding the likes of racing games have to be put in the general discussion section as only full members can read them if they are in our racing forum and currently we dont have a large amount of racers in the seniors.
    Theres also loads of stuff on Battlefield and other FPS posted in our other senior forums. Particularly some good sections on hints and tips for the likes of BF3 .
