Hi TOGers, I hate these things. always feels like talking on stage... so i guess i'll go with your bullet points from the sticky first off. What games are you currently playing/looking to play with TOG? that's a long list... let's see, there's EVE, Mechwarrior Online, Elder Scrolls Online. actually cut it short, basically anything you guys play i'm keen to at least try once. the above ones are off the top of my head. What was the first machine you played games on or pen and paper game you played? First machine i played on? Would have to be an old green screen Amstrad my parents brought over from the UK when i was a kid. We also had a NES and an Atari, but i forget the number... i had a single cartridge slot and an external tape deck. my first PC was a 286SX with something stupid like 4MB RAM. which was later upgraded... i still have that old beast here, 486DX4-100 with 64MB RAM and a Creative Sound Blaster 16 card. what a monster. haha. Why do you want to join TOG? Honestly? a friend of mine and myself made a go of running our own gaming community, it started out well enough on our first game but due to a lack of effort on our part, it quickly dwindled to just being 4 of us. at which point we decided it's time to move on to something new and an environment where we're just another pair of guys looking to play games and not in any sort of leadership role. We want people like us to game with and an environment where we don't have to deal with the throngs of twelve year old 'leet haxxers' too much. people we can have intelligent conversations, discussions and debates with, without everything boiling into childish arguments. at least not every time. Tell us about yourself or anything else you'd like to share. hmm, well, i'm a fat gamer. have been all my life. i love gaming. i used to be more of a soloist but a good friend helped open me up to teaming and working with others. so now i love to work with people towards a common goal. i do swear a bit. but i also work retail so i can keep that down. (see, not one swearword in this whole thing. f-... good hey?) I'm also married, my wife is a gamer. she may or may not request to join. that's up to her. i work in retail IT, to be exact. and spend pretty much all my down time gaming to some extent. I hope you guys like my long request to join. i see you guys around a lot and would love to be a part of the community. Best regards, Astillius.
