    Hello fellow gamers,
    The name is Russ but everyone calls me Rusty.I'M 45 been gaming for most of it[thank you Mr Sinclair],and still enjoying it.Refreshing to find like minded individuals here.
    Joined the Playstation Brigade after 2nd xbox got Red ring of death [thanks HALO].So im a newbie on the network.
    I prefer Strategy and fun than Running and gunning.Hopefully if im accepted as a ally i will continue with that theme.Winning isn't everything with me but i try my best for my teammates.Finding it hard to type about myself,feels a bit like school detentions.
    Still got a loft full of consoles and games.Does anyone still have a jaguar console or a dreamcast ? Dreamcast was fun especially with a dial-up connection.Sorry laughing now thinking about the bad or good old days.
    Anyways i best stop waffling and maybe prepare to be killed in some weird or wonderful glitch type thing.
    Cheers Rusty
    PS THANK-YOU YINKIN

    Hi Rusty and glad to meet you. So where are you from then? How did you hear about us? What disc is currently in your PS3 at the moment?

    Any chance we could persuade you to become a full fat member? Theres no commitment; you can be as hardcore or as casual as you like. I reckon a few nights in a game of your choice will soon get you gaming more!!!

    Anyways, good to meet you and hope to see you in a game soon.

    Hi Russ and welcome, I wish I still had my Dreamcast its freaking wizard, only had aliens on my jaguar and it wasn't good :(

    I'm assuming Yinkin has told you about this little plot of Internet greatness :)

    Do you have BF3? Most of us will be on it tonight if you fancy it.

    Welcome to our home, Rusty. :D

    So, how did you find us? Was it through our BF3 server? HaloJ thinks she recalls playing with you recently.

    I see you are asking for Ally status. This is our 'membership lite' option which is suitable for those who are already members of other communities and fly their tags online and gives you a little more access to our site. There is also our Full Fat Membership option (become a Senior Citizen) which gives you full access to our website and all its features including the chat bar system, a place on the VIP list on our BF3 server plus the change to fly the [SNR] tag in online games. This option is suitable for those who aren't in other communities already or wish to make this their main community and agree that by doing so they will fly the [SNR] tags rather than those of other communities.

    So as Slaine has said, can we persuade you to go for Full Fat membership if you would like this to be your main/only community?

    Anyway, apart from BF3, what other games do you currently play? We've got a varied selection as you will see from our Events calendar and we're also making events for some of the PS Plus games that subscribers are getting for free. Hopefully you'll find a few things that you can join in and if not, we're always open to suggestions. :)

    Ooh, A shiny new applicant. No......hang on...........he's Rusty. Ba Dum Tsh

    Take no notice of Martok pushing you towards full fat membership (even If It Is free and really the only sensible option) It's just that he get's lonely since the corpse of the Wing Commander was returned to It's rightful owners by the authroities.
    Anyhoo, We can guarantee that he won't watch you sleep and stroke your hair In the middle of the night, The injunction took care of that.

    As for Slaine, Just don't show him your bare feet, He may get all 'Gollum' and 'Precious' on you.

    Anyway..... Welcome and enjoy your stay. :thumbup:

    so you made it here okay, great , sorry if i came across a little stand offish when sent me a FR on BF3, i tend to pretty wary of unsolicited request from people I dont know, one of the reasons I love seniors is the fact I can avoid some of the idiot quotient out there.

    Anyway I hope we can play some games together which have more than two people on them like bf3 was last night, not the best seniors night ever. What do you like to play besides Battlefield? We have regular killzone 3, uncharted 3 and battlefield nights, but we play whatever people fancy.

    Thanks for the very warm welcome.
    Yes i found the bf3 server and died lots [thanks Haloj].
    How do you donate to keep server running?
    Will be up for abit of bf3 tonight.
    Anybody still play zombies?
    I think a snr gamertag would be a bit embarassing but it does look good,so i will ponder that one.
    Thanks again
    RUSTY

    The rich bloke pays for it and we just take the piss by not contributing to it.

    I'll be on it fairly early tonight, I tend to play on my own for an hour before anyone else arrives so I can get a feel for what its like not to die every few seconds.
    Where abouts in the UK are you from matey?

    But that's what dads are for!

    I spent about 20 minutes last night pinned on the dancefloor in a wedding suit by 4 small boys who I think were seeing if they could hurt me.

    It was nice to see one of their dads come and offer support by giving me the thumbs up and saying "cracking job down there"

    Good to play along side you tonight, Rusty. :D

    As I explained over comms, there's a lot more forums available to full members and a couple more for Allies. Have a think about which you would like to go for. Whichever it is, you have a vouch from me. :thumbup:

    It's a vouch from me.

    Anyone that can put up with being on the same team as Martok that long is alright in my book.

    Plus he stayed in for the long haul and let me knife him several times, sorry fella, I was determined to start working toward the melee medal.

    Martok-
    Rusty messaged me on PSN to say he'd like to go with the full fat membership option. Col & Halo can then get to take his tags some more. :lol:

    Rusty has had a few vouches and I know Halo is vouching for him (she's currently making homemade pizza in the kitchen). So without further ado...

    Welcome to Senior Gamers, [SNR] rusty-brains. You should now see all of the forums and the chat system open to you. I'll stick you on the VIP list for our server shortly. Now go out and wear the [SNR] tag with pride (they are quite good, you know ;) ).

    See you online soon. :thumbup:
