    Hello

    I am Ken Laidlaw (PSN kencanvey)

    You may know me from some games like " Gone with the Grenade" and "Carry on Camping" .
    To those that don't know me, I am 48 years old, single, Huge with log hair and enjoy running around with a knife shouting blood blood and laughfing!!! (in online games of course) :wtf: :crazy:

    I live in the West Midlands :yawn: which is a really nice place :shifty: and share a house with my niece Nicky, PSN rockyjayne, and her other half Jason, PSN whyteknight74, 3 cats and two sieberian huskies!! :)

    I was for a while an OAP, but left there. I have continued on my quest to unnerve fellow players by running up to them shouting behind you and them finding only me!! :problem: :errno: .
    I still have my trusty fat PS3, on which I play KZ3, BF3, MAG(still).

    My history of gaming began with a couple of old games boxes then went to Speccy, C64, Amiga, PC(still) and of course PS3.

    Oh and I would like full citizenship if that would be OK :angel:

    See ya online

    Ken

    Hi Ken, glad you came over here and nice to talk to you again. :thumbup:

    You're incredibly lucky to still have your fat PS3 still going!!! :o :o A lot of them have got the dreaded Yellow Light Of Death now (as mine did). Keep that bad boy well ventilated and the vents clean!!

    Anyway, hope to get a game or two going with you soon.

    Martok-
    Welcome to the new place, Ken. :D

    I didn't realise you were 48. I'm liking the fact that there are now several sign-ups who are older than my 45 years. :clap:

    I hadn't realised that you had left OAP?! Officially you are still a full member over there going by your colour on the site. You may want to let them know, though it does seem that they are Chumming some folk who become full members here anyway.

    We really must meet up more on KZ3! I think you joined us one Tuesday but not seen you since then. We'll be on again this week so please do join us killing those Helghan scum! :evil:

    Do tell us some more about your gaming past. What games do you remember on the Speccy, C64 and Amiga? What do you play on the PC? Did you have the PS1 and PS2 and if so, what were your favourites on these?

    Anyway, you are well known to many over here already and both Halo & I have met you personally at a meet. I think I'm qualified to say that you're a nice guy. :thumbup: Due to this, though we will normally have more prodding and poking of new members before they are let in, in this case I'll do the honours now (though you'll still be prodded and poked and I expect answers to my questions, sonny! :grandpa: :lol:

    Arise, [SNR] kencanvey! It's great to have you on board. Now go and fly the [SNR] tags and let folk know we're here! You can also sign up to our Battlefield 3 clan here and I'll chuck you a KZ3 clan invite next time I'm on. :)

    Hey Its Canny Ken
    Nice to see that you made your way here. I've been tempted to buy Black ops just so that I can play with yourself and your two housemates (not your cats or dogs), as I get invites off jason from time to time. You and your family are often the only people online playing games when I am but its generally Blops.
    Can I not temp you to to get Starhawk or Dirt Showdown?

    If I could get a kevlar bulletproof vest that was inpenatrable as a perk (and i was the only one to have one) and I could get a filter that would not allow Merican brats into the same game as me then I would get myself black ops.

    Actually its the other two who play black oops as I don't really rate it that much although I do dabble now and then ;) I prefer BF3 (just got premium and I like it) or even KZ3 and even MAG getting on a bit but then so am I :grandpa:

    Starhawk or Dirt Showdown errrm no!! beta tested SH didn't like it and not really into driving/racing games sorry :( and for the foreseeable future I am skint!!!! :thumbdown: ;)

    It will be nice to be involved in some organised chaos errm games again :lol:

    One thing I will add to my list of things I do is a bit of begginer photography, I got what's known as a bridge camera not point and shoot but not SLR, it's a FujiFinepix s2980 14 meg pix 18x optical zoom and takes HD video too, I like it as it can be point and shoot or I can bugger up the picture by fiddling with the settings :thumbup: :? :lol: If I get to like a bit of piccy taking and I ever have money again!! I may at some point get a Digital SLR.
