M gaming history?

Well..........

Zx spectrum the crappy rubber key one then the black plastic one ( r tape loading error press any key?)
Commodore 64, atari ST, Oric Atmos (bag o shite), pretty much every PC since the 286 cpu (home built), sega Saturn, mega drive, Dreamcast , PS 1/2/3/4, all Xboxes up to the One plus many hand helds I can’t remember. Been gaming since the 1980’s so here since the beginning, kids these days don’t know the hardships we had to endure to get enough base memory free editing config.sys and autoexec.bat just to play Geoff Crammonds Grand Prix!!!

Good games indeed tonight Kaycee, we started winning when you joined the squad so consider you the good omen now ;)
Look forward to many more when I’m next on. Like many of us now family life and kids restrict access during the week but love a good sesh at the weekend :)

Feel free to add me folks. I’m relatively normal, I think :)

There you go Swigsy, your name is now blue, and more of the forum is opened up.

Welcome Swigsy, did the name come from a drinking habit?

But egads! why on earth would one go from a C64 to an Oric Atmos? let alone from the ST to it!! Madness I tell thee.

Oh not so much a habit, just liked a few decent beers when playing clan matches in team fortress classic so when it was time to choose names this kinda fitted :) we had another guy called Juister, he had , shall we say, a major accident in his undergarments and hence forth was know as....... :)

And I do have to say when it comes to this game ( all games) I am about as useful as a rabbits foot myself. I poke my nose out and get killed instantly. The best I ever do is hear a few thuds of my bullets hitting, but rarely get kills. I need to find a good team to carry me,as ranking up is taking forever.

Oh hi swigsy by the way
