Hello GameGrin!

Hi all,

Very pleased to find out I can get to this site through my work filters. My open plan office and very visible desk may mean I only get on at lunchtimes, but right now I'm the only one here.

I'm 28, I live in Newcastle and I love games. I've been gaming for as long as can I remember.

I've always split my time between consoles and PCs but I recently persuaded the missus to let me hook my PC up to the big TV downstairs and its getting most of my attention these days.

I discovered Minecraft this weekend. Obviously I've heard a lot about it but was never really tempted by the concept. Now that I have tried it for myself I can see it coming a real addiction.

Re: Hello GameGrin!

Right now I'm in an RPG mood. Kingdom's of Amalur Reckoning and Mass Effect 2 are on my currently playing list (I play too many games at once) with Minecraft on the side.

In general I play a fairly wide range. I like a bit FPS, tried some Crysis recently. I bought it on release but my system couldn't really do it justice. Years later I've finally caught up with the tech and it's beautiful.

I also like a bit of strategy - I'm always going back to Galactic Civilizations 2 and the Total War games. Got a Shogun 2 game saved about half way through which is going well.

What about you? What games keep you busy?

Re: Hello GameGrin!

I was tempted by SWTOR, but I must keep myself away from MMOs. I know I have an addictive personality when it comes to gaming and investing in a game with no definitive end point would leave me little time to enjoy other titles.

Re: Hello GameGrin!

Timmy very occasionally. Although I think he's well and truly deserted us in favour of NG now. Burty was here very briefly, but I think he fled back to Amazon, or also to NG, not too sure.

EDIT - actually, how did you come across this place?

Kaostic - Haha. I love that picture. The tash is not a regular, I was shaving off a goatee and decided to experiment with a few looks - admit it, we've all tried it.

DA - I too flirted with the NowGamer forum and stuck with it for a while. It was no good for work though a it got caught by filters and it was not iPhone friendly. This forum seems to manage both (with the Tapatalk app anyway).

Hi Billy. So you like multiplayer FPS? Any games on particular? What do you play them on?

I was about to type something very similar until I read you'd beaten me to it.

I'm not feeling the love for the tash that it deserves. Perhaps I require a different avatar picture.

I'm shocked. I've been here 5 minutes and you have already stifled my individuality

Fine. Here is a picture of my cat instead
