Guid evenin' - lang time nae see!

Postby Zenphorine » Wed 14 Mar 2018, 11:20 pm

Howdy everyone!

My name is Zenphorine, Zenph for short, Zen is also fine, and I’m a 35-year-old lass from bonny Scotland.

I must confess, I’ve actually been member of this forum for quite some time, I got introduced by the mighty Yaster a good while back, but forgot to activate my account until yesterday – oopsies!

Funny how these things always find a way of coming around :D

Much like zb100, my other half, I am here to participate in a positive community and hopefully get some gaming on too!

So here goes with the intro!

Platform and Gaming History:

Commodore 64 – Dig Dug, Bubble Bobble, Spy VS Spy, Last Ninja, Impossible Mission, Q*bert, Summer/Winter Games

Game Boy – Mario Land, Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, Balloon Kid, Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle 1 and 2, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Duck Tails (woo-oo!)

Arcade – New Zealand Story, Dragon’s Lair, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (it was Canada and Ninja was standard, none of this Hero nonsense), The Simpsons

Mega Drive – Sonic the Hedgehog (all of them, loved them, still do), Earthworm Jim (another fave), Taz-Mania, Castle of Illusion, The Lion King

PC – Dungeon Keeper, Black and White, The Dig, Half-life, Quake, Unreal Tournament

Xbox – Halo, Beyond Good and Evil, Burnout 3: Takedown

Xbox 360 – More Halo, Burnout Revenge, GTA5

PS4 – Destiny and Destiny 2, DOOM, Sonic Mania, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee - New 'n' Tasty, Star Wars Battlefront II

If you’ve not already guessed basically platformers and FPS do it for me!

Now a little about myself… :pcpunch:

By night I’m a multi-media artist when I find the time to make videos and animations and all that kind of stuff. Little case of the day J-O-B getting in the way there though unfortunately but working on it. Aint nothin' goin' on but the rent, but I guess I can’t complain too much as I am fortunate to at least have a job(s) within my field.

I think that’s enough for now :wink:

Cheers folks! :gaming:

Welcome, I believe I played Battlefront with you and your other half a while back with Solo. Unfortunately that game seems to have died quietly, hopefully it'll pick up again with some updates/improvements.

Anyway you'll find a regular battlefield event on Sundays, CoD most of the week, GT Sport also on Sundays and soon to be Burnout paradise on Saturdays.

Feel free to send friend requests to people.

Always good to see a proper gaming history in an introduction! Welcome to OAPS!

I'll even forgive the C64 over the plucky little Speccy :)

Lies, all lies.

A voucharino for Zen who I have known for about 13 years.

Welcome to the community! Hopefully we will all get back onto Destiny when Bungie get their fingers out finally.

Hi Zen,

Lovely to meet both you and Zoob over the last few nights. Looking forward to doing the raid with you thanks to some new found enthusiasm for D2 (which I can thank you both for) :)

Glad to help though we very much weren't on our A-game last night, as Tony will attest - the nightfall was grim!

Thanks for the warm welcome kaycee2011!

As for CoD, it’s a game I’ve never really been able to sink my teeth into some reason. Might give it another bash at some point :smile:

Never played the Speccy but remember some old pals having them. I was but a young thing back then but I absolutely loved my C64!

Thanks Saltyballz81- zb100 was laughing at how long it was taking me to type it all up!

Only even watched Toe Jam & Earl being played. Might noise up my friend Dean and have a go on his RETRON5 :smile:

Thanks Yaster! Must really try harder at hooking up next time you’re here or vice versa.

Also looking forward to playing with you again :smile:

Lovely to meet you too roguetrooper but absolutely agree with zb100 - not been on our A game at all!

Practice makes perfect but :wink:

Thanks Gazman86 - will do :smile:

Plenty going for on then by the sounds of it!

Planning on picking up Burnout Paradise myself when it comes out so give zb100 and myself a shout when the ball gets rolling.
