Hello folks!

Postby krizkaoz » Fri 25 Jan 2019, 10:13 pm

My playstation name is krizkaoz, I tried posting from my ipad but it hates me. It's a rough day indeed when you have to turn to Microsoft to save the day!

I'm forty eight and have been gaming since we used to type programs out of magazines on to our ZX81's, then record them on to audio cassette. The good old days when balls and bats used to be square.

I was told about Old Age Playstationers by my friend okaneman86. He's been cheating on me with you guys for some time now. I'm fed up of being team killed on Rainbow Six Siege because I don't have the reactions of a twelve year old. At least I don't go crying to Mommy when I lose.

I'm not the best gamer but I'm a team player. My best is after three beers but it's a rather fast downward slope after that. I'm looking to buddy up with folk who enjoy the trying and see winning as a bonus.

If the previous attempt to post went through, please pick whichever one makes me look the wittiest.

Brilliant intro mate, the '3 beers' part really resonated with me lol. Had a ZX myself, the Konami/Ocean collections were personal favorites. :D

Welcome to OAP buddy, get stuck in. :Y:

Cheers guys. I still think that the first draft was funnier. Alas my memory wasn't that good.

I assume you live across the water, I wonder if you can stump our resident dialectologist Kaycee.

Welcome kriz, I love the idea of 3 beers to reach peak performance. MummyA is less impressed apparently!

So rude. 8O
Its only the Scots I've not managed to decipher. I have no problem with Shane Lynch and Ian Paisley.
(Apart from after 11pm and Ian ceases to use consonants)

Welcome Kriz,

I thought it said KrissKross at first and was going to ask if you were the Mac Daddy or the Daddy Mac! (or possibly the Migedamigedamigedamac).

Used to do league bowling, that was three games, the first was always poor, the second was best as the beer kicked in, the third was terrible as too much beer kicked in.

Did you have any other gaming platforms prior to the PS4? Any 8-bit magic lurking in the old bonce?
