    Re: Online Gaming for us older people.

    ahhh don't mind me...I'm just an old fart here, can't even figure out them buttons on them controllers...too many damned buttons! All I's need is one fire button and kill em all...shoot anything that moves...friendly fire...yeah that's the ticket, friendly fire.

    Yeah times they have a changed eh? I remember that simple blip and that paddle, then Atari had to muck it all up by making it all complicated by putting two paddles. Yeah video games just kept gettin' more and more complicated for the old noggin to keep up with.

    Then there was Tank Commander with two joysticks and a fire button. Now I gots to use two hands. Oh boy life was getting tougher with each new game coming out.

    But that damned Asteroids game was the clincher though with that gravity working against your triangle ship and you plowing into them rocks. Got addicted to that game and pretty soon I would dream of rocks slamming into me while I slept.

    So's I get outta Asteroids and get into them mindless games like Centipede and sick games like Dig Dug. Imagine that finding something, sticking some stick into it and pumping it up until it explodes! Sick ain't it?

    Now I'm older and slower so I've been reduced to a good game of Solitaire. Yeah the OEM version in Windows. Back to basics

    Yep most beautiful place on earth (in a very wild sorta way) - in my humble and extremely biased opinion of course

    We use the etpro mod rather than shrub, lots of cool features, the main one being it's more useful against cheats than shrub etc.

    I'll definitely check your server out. Horrendously busy with work atm so not playing much, but manage the odd 20 mins now and then.

    Like you we have people from all over - I think 5 from mainland US, similar number of Brits and the rest from western Europe - also including a multitude of Finns and server is based in the UK.

    Good to "meet" you too

    And to Kimo, you're never too old to "Wolf"

    Regards, Smudge

    Unlikely our paths will cross on servers tho as I guess you'll be mainly on the west coast US ones - my ping from UK usually >200 so kinda tough to play. Not to mention it's the middle of the night here when all you guys are fragging the daylights out of each other.

    Nice clansite too - drop into http://www.fatalpunishers.com sometime if you got a minute to find where I can most often be found making a nuisance of myself

    You never know, maybe we'll bump into each other on a server sometime

    Wow... From Scotland. Cool I've always wanted to visit Scotland. I heard it was very beautiful there. I checked out the website. Do you guys use a shrubbot system? Its funny I'm a Co-Leader on our servers. We have 3 founders 2 co-leaders and the rest are members. Our server is located in Dallas, Texas USA. We have plenty of European players. Our 3 founders are in Europe. One is in Switzerland one is in GB and another is in Australia. I'm in Hawaii and we have a multitude of Finnish players. Only a couple of the members are on the mainland US. You shouldn't have any problem visiting.

    Good to meet you.

    Easy kine, brah. Go to New Orleans!
    Get da rental car at the airport there, pull out of the airport, and in the first few blocks you'll start seeing the DRIVE-THROUGH DAQUIRI stands! Fo' real. See lotsa folks there drivin' around holding da sytrofoam cup. Guess it's okay with the police as long as yer car isn't weaving around.

    HT's very own Pa'ani section is a good place for "older people" gaming.

    Best part, you don't have to know which combination of X-O-V-[-] to press. Just press each other's "buttons".

    Miniature vacation huh? Playing WWII shooting up people as a good stress relief...hmmm I hope I never see you on my vacation I guess I'm an older older person as I honestly don't see the stress relief in that scenerio at all.

    Now Google Earth as boring as it sounds is nice. Got to visit my old neighborhoods I've lived in over my lifetime.

    I used to play a little World of Warcraft, but I'd avoid those MMORPG's, they're just way too time consuming.
    I haven't personally because they ARE too time consuming. My wife would kill me.

    I like star wars alot but i havent been able to get into the cult thing too much. I have heard alot of great things about it.
