    Greetings everyone! Just wanted to say that I'm newly registered and am curious as to what this place is all about. If anything, I can at least use you guys as proof to my girlfriend that I'm not the only old guy playing these games. :mrgreen:

    Ahhhh, ok. I just read through the FAQ and such.

    I guess I'll start off by introducing myself.

    Name's Ramiro. I'm 29 years old hailing from Houston TX. I guess I've been a gamer pretty much all my life. Grew up with an Apple IIE and went on from there. I dig all types of games, but FPS's are what I predominantly play on my PC. I gave Star Wars Galaxies a shot, but it got a little old for me. Currently I'm digging UT2004, BF1942, BFVietnam, and Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow. I just finished Far Cry and am anxiously awaiting DOOM III!! I'm also giving Tron 2.0 another go round now that I upgraded my vid card.

    My PC specs are as follows

    P4 1.8 ghz
    512 mb Ram
    80 gig HD
    HIS 9800 Pro Ice-Q
    mouse, keyboard, speakers, yadda yadda yadda. :wink:

    I also own several consoles. (PS2, Xbox, and the Gamecube)

    Hope to play alongside you guys soon!

    Ramiro.

    Welcome

    Welcome Mate

    It maybe hot there, but it's bloody cold here. As another recently registered member it's all good.

    Have had a couple of practice / muck up COD games with the mostly Australian members and found it to be great fun.

    Enjoy

    Awww.. now what'd you do that for? You've gotten Smash all excited. He's impossible when he's excited. Bouncing all over the place like he's hyped up on red cordial. 8)

    Welcome to TOG mate. I've made you a member, so you should now have access to the private forums. See the Contacts page for the Division Captain/s to get in touch with for the game/s you want to play with TOG.

    You should tell your girlfriend that not only are you not alone being an older gamer, but she wouldn't be either. There are a few of us girls that like to get out there and have fun. The FPS' are a very great stress reliever, trust me!

    LOL! What's up Smash? Glad to see someone else from H-town here. I'm living in the Jersey Village area on the NW side for now.

    As far as everyone else, thank you all for the kind welcome. I'm looking forward to meeting you guys on the grid.

    BTW, for all you Aussies out there. I just heard you guys recently voted Dark Side of the Moon the #1 album of all time. I believe it was in the Daily Telegraph.

    Good Choice!!!
