Hello Pete and welcome, you have no idea how much hassle we've had trying to approve your posts ha ha. Good choice with the Pro, surprising how much better it looks on a 4k TV.

Is the PS4 your only co sole currently?

And so you're aware we have events organised for Cod on Fridays, Battlefront 2 on Saturdays, Battlefield 1 on Sundays, there is also another group who play Gran Turismo on Sunday as well.

So given your list of games you have plenty of choice lol. A few of us are on most nights as well as those days.

Welcome!

That's a nice combination of hobbies there! Not tempted to tie things to the AC planes and try to shoot them?

I picked up an old Scalextric set for my boys to watch me play when they're older for $20 from a charity shop the other month, just need to change the contacts to get it working.

My scalextric set as a kid was second hand too, so old it had the cars that you made yourself and the transformer had a cut out button, that kept popping up so we taped it down. It was the 70s, there was no health and safety.

Well well finally it's sorted your intro is here. it is great to see you here mucka I look forward to many a nights gaming as well as all the other interests we share. Great intro as well they will all be thinking this old B gave you a few tips.
To all the other OAPs I vouch from the highest degree for Peter I know he will fit in great here, sure the other night in the chat I couldn't get a word in because of the chat between Salty and him, come to think of it I can never get a word in when Saltys about :)
Bondy if your reading this and he tells you I fall asleep out at the flying club he's telling the truth :lol:
peace and love
Tel :drink:
