    2010 is now here and it promises to be a very good year for console gamers.

    The first quarter of this year is shaping up to be as good as the Christmas period for game releases on all platforms.

    As we enter another year of frag fests, dungeon crawling, sim management, racing, street fighting and Wii balance boarding it has become time to look at what the Console Consortium can do to make the gaming experience better for all console TOGers.

    In a sense it is evaluation time and it would be really cool, and very helpful, to hear from you guys and girls about what you like about the Console Consortium, what need to change and what you would like to see added.

    Please feel free to give us your thoughts and ideas here and through your friendly debate we can together create the frame work for a stronger Console Consortium! :D

    Nothing a couple of hundred more active players/posters would not sort :)

    Seriously there is nothing really much we could do that i could think of.

    I'd like to see some more active Yank players. But don't know how to do that apart from outside recruitment. I had a guy I was playing with a week or so ago that was 27 and actually a US Marine. He showed interest and I told him what to do... not sure if hes done it.

    Not that I don't love you folks down under, It'd just be nice to play with some peeps where I wouldnt lag like crazy. :rolleyes:

    Are you guys aware of the TOG gaming league?

    The Older Gamers Gaming Leaguev3.2

    I am hoping that the Console Consortium use this in 2010. I will PM Fox and try to get some more details for us.

    As to comps (of any kind or platform), if you want one started we can at least create a sticky and do a shout out for interested players.

    PM any of the squad leaders with what you want and we will do our best to get it rolling for you.

    That's true I have seen a few people asking for help in the Lounge when they could have been here since they were console related questions.

    Yeah, I was looking for it the other day and couldn't find it. It's seems to have either been un-stickied or (and I'm hoping not) deleted when we got rid of that other sub-forum.

    It was archived in favour of "specific games being played" lists.

    There is no reason we can not bring a gamer tag / PSN ID / Wii Codes list back if people prefer that.

    We would have started a new one for this year any way, so if you guys want one, now would be a good time to make it.

    I think just sticky in the Gaming section would be fine not the main page. ie. Console Talk.

    So to make sure I am understanding ( I am a bit slow :D)

    We want one sticky for ID's?

    Example:

    Pure Mongrel
    XBL: Pure Mongrel
    PSN: Mongrel_56
    Wii: 565655656565 (LOL - can't remember real number)

    Or do you want to go back to a sticky per console?

    If we make this sticky it will have to come with a big notice about it being in the public eye.

    hmm that is also a good idea, the way i thought is:..

    (idea 1) 1 sticky thread with the following as linked threads...

    wii codes
    xbl tags
    psn id's

    but your idea would be better, also gives people a chance to update their codes/id's for 2010 and whether they play that consol anymore

    but seeing as theres codes for other games.
    (idea 2)

    Pure Mongrel
    XBL: Pure Mongrel
    "insert game here": 543553435
    PSN: Mongrel_56
    "insert game here": 534576435834
    "insert game here":878789
    Wii: 565655656565
    mario kart : 6473647343
    guitar hero: 43423

    we could have it as above without the extra games, and maybe have linked threads in the sticky eg/...

    (idea 3)

    Pure Mongrel
    XBL: Pure Mongrel
    PSN: Mongrel_56
    Wii: 565655656565

    linked wii game codes
    ect ect

    personally i like pure's idea and my 2nd idea.. lets you know what games people have / are playing

    I agree with Option 2 and 3.

    3 to be minimalist and 2 if people wish to add the games they are playing and/or codes associated to them.

    Yes BIG and BOLD lettering outlining that it can be viewed in the public domain.

    I really like option 2 but if we add specific games to the same list, won't it get very long and hard for players to search through?

    Many players have many online titles and if I am just looking for the Burnout Paradise players that could be a lot of scrolling on my part. (I could be wrong through :))

    What if we set up a sticky that is in this format:

    TOG Name:
    PSN ID:
    Wii ID:
    XBL ID:

    From there the TOG name will be a link to the TOG members post where they can put what ever info they feel comfortable sharing.

    In there post (asking to be added to the list) they might want to put info about what times they usually play, the city they live in, list the titles in their games library, what set up they have (TV, speakers, etc.).

    I think we should keep making specific title lists though for ease of finidng fellow players and giving that sense of community ;)

    Judging by what you guys have said, once the list starts we should also make notice of it in the "lounge room" to let other TOGers know we exist :D
