Just thought I'd pop by and say a heart felt 'Hello there'.

I'm Gus (Culver if I like you) and have been gaming since back in the day when I would sit for hours punching code into my 16k ZX Spectrum. I know everyone here and if I don't then hello you lot.

I don't have a fully functioning PS3 at the moment which sucks but I spend most of my time in MMOs (still!) and DayZ, the Arma 2 zombie survival mod and also playing Minecraft/Buildcraft/IndustrialCraft on our server with my sons. I can't get my daughter to play it as it imposes on her Sims time apparently! If you ever want to join us just let me know. Always up for some old gaming chums to build stuff with.

Anyway, seeing as the PS3 is out of the window full access is probably not an option but it's nice to see you have created a fine looking new home and wish you all the best in your new venture.

Gus/Culver/Grumpy :)

Hey Gus,

Nice to see you over here, hope things are well with you and yours and if you do pick up another PS3 at some point it'd be great to get some games in again.


edit* When you say you're not suitable for full membership, is this something you would want?

Hey Gus, I tried to get arma2 and dayz working on my laptop but no joy :(

Looks great, what's your longest life span, and have you found any weapons?

Welcome to the new place, Gus. :waving:

So, how did you find this place? I didn't post on my Facebook wall about it (I don't think). Just curious as we're looking at what is working in getting this place known to other gamers. :)

Shame to hear your PS3 is out of action. However, I wouldn't say that this should be a barrier to full membership in your case if this is what you would like? At the moment we are PS3-centric, mainly because we're a new community and trying to grow it at this stage with one aspect of commonality. It'll remain that way at least for now (though we do have a section for full members to discuss gaming on other platforms). However we will be looking at what happens with the next gen consoles and may well go multiplatform at that stage.

Anyway, if you'd like full membership then let us know, otherwise you can have the diet version which is Ally membership. :)

Ive still got you on my Friends List, and I'll keep you on there just in case you ever get another PS3.

Oh, and a vouch for me if for whatever he wants (Ally or Senior)

@Jkrohn1
I've survived for about 3 and a half hours. Got a DMR and found some friendlies which helped. Unfortunately I got killed at a barracks by another group but the guys I was with killed them and saved my stuff. The only issue at the moment is the only time I get to play it is late and all EU servers are in night mode and I don't have night vision goggles yet, although I do have night vision and thermal scope. So, sniping them pesky zombies and bandits is still fun :)

@Martok
Hello mate. Well full access would be most generous and I will behave myself once I've had a good prodding! :P Do you know what I can't remember how I found out, I think it was a link on FB to a post on here and I remembered someone mentioned something about you and Halo starting up a website.

You stopped playing that SWTOR rubbish yet? Only one month to go and Guild Wars 2 is released...and you can't beat an MMO with no subscription fees :D

I think if you'd been a stranger we'd have been more concerned about your busted PS3 but as we know you and with the next next gen apparently so close I see no problem with you having full membership. So that's a vouch for Gus from me also and maybe you'll be inspired to create a zombie PS3.

As a PC player I'm surprised that Needa hasn't got his claws into you and got you addicted to Eve yet!

Eve Online was removed from my gaming arsenal due to threats of divorce! :D

Now where would the fun be in that? :P

Vouch from me btw.

Well without further ado...

Welcome, [SNR] GusGorman. :1thumbup:

I hope that your PS3 may be resurrected and that you'll join us in flying the [SNR] tag online.

All the forums and their wonders should be available in a mo once I've put another 50p in the meter.

Hi Gus, long time since we played online together . I also remember you posting some interesting views in the old place (which didn't go down too well). Your postings had a lot of intergrity that I admired. Glad to see you here. As the others have said, if you want to see the full site, then just ask for full membership, you never know, all this banter might get you back into online gaming.

We tried to get a dodgy copy of ammo 2070 last week , took 3 nights to download, but we couldn't get it to work.
Bought a proper version off savvy last night, it was 9.98 free post.
