New joiner (Andy-El_Loco)

Postby Andy-El_Loco » Wed 31 Oct 2018, 3:44 pm

Hi everyone, just joining after a recommendation about the group :-)

Been playing games since the original pong as a kid and a wasted youth playing space invaders! although I like to still think I'm only 21 - Hopefully this wont get me kicked off the group already

recently got me a PS4Pro and mainly playing SW BF2 and the Tomb raider series.

Starting to look around for folks to group up with and recommendations for other games to get into

Cheers
Andy

Greetings Andy, @Solo-Nite organises a regular Star Wars bash so if it wasn't him that pointed you this way then do give him a shout. :)

Hi Andy, welcome to OAP. So what other consoles have you owned in the past, (and with a name like El Loco why aren't you playing Red Dead Redemption 2)? :Y:

Welcome to OAP mate. If you like flying in SWBF2 let me know, best mode in it.

Thanks for the welcomes :-)

I had several Atari consoles/computers and messed about with PS2/PS3 but never really had much time - but now our daughter has gone to Uni I've invested in the PS4 and doing some serious catching up :-)

RDR2 is on my radar but just clearing out the Tomb Raider series first - with all the talk on that though I suspect I'll get it sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the heads up about @Solo-Nite, I'll drop him a line as I;m looking to start grouping up on BF2

@Andes_Attack was the one that pointed me in this direction - Many thanks to them :-)

Happy to give it a go, I love GA the most but more than happy to have a fly around and shoot a few things

or send it to me! ;)

Coincidentally my original PC gaming tag was Loco, well something like "Loco== -=o -=o" as I allegedly looked like Huey Morgan and played paintball (those are supposed to be paintballs). However my (then) clan mates decided that it should be changed and gave me the gamer tag I still use today (except on XBL as it was taken by some scum).

Pull up a chair, or a horse if you're getting into RDR2, which I always read as R2D2......

Thanks @Mulletino - I think I will have to get RDR2 v soon as everyone is telling me I should (I don't want to miss out and peer pressure is strong on this one - that's my really vague link to your Star Wars reference :roll:

Hi Andy. Don't play the old Atari, it will only disappoint you.
