    Good morning
    Names Grim (not really) I've been looking for a gaming community that really caters for the needs of more mature gamers, and while being on night mode due to work I saw Good Game on ABC, which had a bit on TOG and I thought wow that's just what I was looking for.
    I'm 28 years old, live in Cobram VIC near the Murray River, newly married to (unfortunately) a non gamer who (thankfully) understands my passion. Moved into our first home 2 weeks ago which is taking some getting used to.
    Been playing games since 8 on the old NES and have basically had every system since, except for anything to do with sega
    Not really been much of an online mulitplayer only played Starcraft, Diablo etc because they were free and easy to hook up. Other than that I don't have a clue to get started in the online gaming universe so if there is anyone who has the patience to help please let me know.

    Same here, just joined today - so far, so good! I don't know if I'm too new to say "Welcome",... but "Welcome".

    From what I can see, rules say you must state you've read the agreements, faqs, etc. before being accepted. To avoid a delay, maybe you should too? (somebody please tell me if I'm wrong...)

    Must be late, er, early there in Vic. ;)
