A big hello from fred2009

Postby fred2009 » Sun 19 Nov 2017, 4:29 pm

Hello everyone. I am a 45 year old PlayStation addict. Been playing games since the first Atari. Love my shooters PvE and PvP it's all good, so long as I get to shoot something. Introduced to the clan by Maczone35 and Grumpy-Me2. Would be really happy to become part of the OAP clan.

Hi Fred, this is a medium sized hello. You harken back to the Atari days, when all of this was finished in fake wood formica.

HI Fred.

Welcome to OAP.

Can you tell us a bit more about your gaming history, and what you're playing at the moment.

HI Fred, welcome to OAPS. I assume your name is a homage to the classic spectrum game FRED?

pfft, actually i've noticed you were only ever a console gamer! ;) Well allow me:

I'm really enjoying the new Elite Fred, though it is a bit of a love/hate thing at times... can be very frustrating sometimes, but really worth sticking with.

I'm putting an exploration build together at the moment, lots of money to be made scanning the galaxy!! :Y:

At least the old version had weapons on all sides, not like these new fangled ones, and they were done in 32K/48K/64K!
