Older but not Wiser

Postby Echo » Thu 26 Nov 2020, 6:41 pm

Hay Everyone,

I was clearing out some old passwords in my google account and came across this place again!
It's been such a long time since I was here, I got caught up in real life and all the crap that comes with that.
Anyway I still see a few players online occasionally but only in Modern Warfare. I never was that active in the forum, but I realised that its been over 13 years :grandpa: , and I still have a t-shirt :lol: I still Play Warzone, a lot...

None of my Sig's work, I've lost all of my awards - I don't know if OAP Black or any of the other colours are still on, of if you guys still have the regular game meet ups?

So whats happening? I know i've missed a lot!

I knew the forums were getting sparse but now there's an echo in here!

Howdy, welcome back!

The teams are long gone and the friends list of modern consoles and social media has kinda killed forums somewhat but some of us are still here. I believe there are a fair few OAPs playing Warzone, I play it on the dark side though, and turn off "Cross-play" in multiplayer to keep away from those cheaty point and click PC wankers.

I still have a couple of OAP shirts too, i miss the old days of OAP meets in the pubs in laaaaandaaaaaan too. I guess living overseas doesn't help, nevermind this Cortana Virus thing!

No doubt some more local people (as in timezone, not pig nosed wierdos from a village) will turn up soon to have a chinwag.

Hello! Also popping my head round the door so great to see another member of the ol’ OAP Black crew.

Like you, have been lost on the winds for a while - still OAPlaystationing, got my PS5, just enjoying astro so far.

My oap shirt is relegated to the “well, I can sleep in it” collection these days, but still gives me that warm feeling (no, my bag does not need changing - thanks for asking!)

Great to see some familiar names in these parts and on my friends list.

(No doubt sigs have gone, so for those who lived through the PS2 glory days, I was Tavia longer than Cookester!)

Hay c00key!!! the PS2 Glory days - Socom - and ill see you in the dead zone :lol:
Does anyone still organise games now? are there many of the old guys or the elders who still plan stuff out?
With the PS5 being released I was wondering if (when I can get my hands on one) if a little bash on some of the old games might be in order? Sunday drivers Hardware or Battlefront or something?

There has always been a Echo in here! lol not only me! Nursey with the Med's or having to empty a Colostomy bag :rofl:

Such a shame I miss the days of

Purple rinse
Ghost white

Hi Echo. We're all modern. There's a Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/oldagep ... ?ref=share and a Discord channel thing that I've no idea how to share (maybe search on here). They're busier than here. I guess that's progress!
