Hi Guys

Just wanted to introduce myself as new to this fine group of old farts ;0)

Directed her by RootRockers who is by far and away the oldest fart of them all :0) Been gaming with him for 5 or 6 years now.

Feel free to add me on PSN: Talon1978 and mention the clan

Currently playing Destiny but also play Battlefield and Killzone

cheers

Hi mate and welcome to the Seniors. Getting quite a lot of new (ish) blood over here, which is nice.:) I'll bung you a Friends Request when I get home. Hope to see you online soon.

Heh if only that was true! He may be 2 years older than me but he's a lot younger than @Acegadgets, the oldest of them all. He's so ancient he pre-dates creation. ;)

Anyway, welcome @Talon1978 :waving:

I'm guessing by your PSN ID that this is the year you were born in. You young 'un! There are a few other 'young' folk around here. It's quite a nice mix and there are no screaming teenagers! We do have some girls too. :D

You'll soon meet up with some Seniors by playing those games, though most of us didn't really get on with Killzone which is a shame as we loved its predecessors.

Do tell us some more about your gaming history, we do like to reminisce. What consoles and computers have you played on over the years? What are your favourite/most memorable games that you have played on these?

If you haven't done so already, do have a read through our About Us section which explains who we are and what we're all about etc. It also mentions our membership options - standard and full. When you've had some time to think about this, let us know which option you would like.

Hope to see you online soon. :)

Thanks guys

Only really got into gaming in a big way with Killzone 2 clocking over 200 hours online while a member of a clan called Shadow company where I met my good friend RootsRockers.

On leaving Shadow Company I then decided to start my own clan call Grumpy Old Men which grew to over 150 members but running it got too much when I got promoted at work and found very little time for gaming let alone running a website so handed over clan to some trusted friend and believe it is still going strong.

Since then I've hit all the KZ, some of the COD and all of the battlefields hard but not gamer much over the last year due to work commitments but now have a new job which should allow a little more gaming.

The thing you will discover about me it that I am almost 100% an online player, only ever touching campagknee (as I call it) when the internets down.

Anyway a short history but shan't waffle on any more as I know the attention span of the elderly is fairly short :0)

Cheers Talon

Funny that I was born in Norwich too. Still work in Norwich but now living across the border in Suffolk.

Friend request in post.

Welcome Talon, I'm just getting into the Destiny grinding part, happy with it so far. Would love to play Kill zone again maybe next time I have some spare time I'll throw an event up.

See you online.
