Approved by Chelc, thank you very much Chelc ^^.

The Church of Gaming
Gamers Unite!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Church of Gaming (I'll explain later where that name comes from :p) This is basically a club where ANY gamer can join and talk about games and all related to games. Do you own a PC, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, XBox, XBox360, GB, GBC, GBA, NDS, GC, Wii or even a Nokia NGage? Feel free to join then.

Basically we talk about games here, maybe we could even organize some tournaments and stuff ^^.

~Rules

- All SPPF forum rules apply, I will report to a mod if these are broken.
- OBEY the club rules, in particular the one about 'oneliners'.
- Discussion which gaming platform is the best is allowed, but no bashing of any kind!
- However much these games may appeal to you, some games are banned for discussion.

Manhunt, Manhunt 2, Postal, Postal 2 and any other game that is either extremely violent or contains sexual content.
Note that discussion of Bioshock (an 18+ rated game, btw) and the likes is allowed because the main purpose of the game does not include killing or violating people.

- Try to keep discussions as mature as possible
- There are kids on SPPF, which means you'll have to be able to stand the discussion of 'Amazing Joe fixes the car: the official game' :D.
- Don't ask to be Co-Owner, first 2 members to join will be Moderator. One of them will become Co-Owner over time (unless I feel like appointing someone else) and then I will appoint a new Moderator.

Well, that's basically it, I might have forgotten something here and there but meh :p. Just point it out and I'll fix it.

Now, the name of the club.
Anybody reads the Ctrl+Alt+Del web comics ? The main hero (read: Video Game addict :p) started a gaming religion there, and it's called the Church of Gaming! So I chose that name because it is rather fitting. Muslims, Jews, Buddhist, Christians, I don't care a slogn as you promise not to kill people in real life and be nice. And no I will not change the name to the 'Mosquee of Gaming', sorry.

~The founding of the Sacred Church of Gaming

Yeah like any self-respecting religion (:p) we have a prophet, Ethan Ryan Macmanus, son of Tim Buckly (doesn't make sense, does it ?) and founder of our sacred religion.

For the lifestory of this Holy Perosn you must make a pelgrimage to Ctrl+Alt+Del.

2 lvls ? Are you serious ?
Actually I kinda enjoyed the lego games back when I was young.
Lego Rock Raiders was my first strategy game and Lego Racers was kinda cool :P.

I'm a different type of gamer now tough.

I know old things never come back to be good apart from pokemon games but their remakes so thats different

Hey you also forgot to put the psp on your list for things to talk about

Bert
19th December 2007, 8:25 PM
Oh crud how could I have forget (tryign to be objective here but I actualy don't like sony consoles :D).

And yeah, old classics are usually better than sequels.
Of course unofficial sequels tend to be pretty good, lately. :P.
Like System Shock 2 got an unnoficial butt-kicking sequel called Bioshock :D.

paddy56

PS3 because it's exclusives are no where near as good as the 360's and Wii's, it's got a poor online service and it's too expensive

Bert
23rd December 2007, 12:43 PM
What console is your least favorite?

Also PS3, it doesn't have Bioshock, Crysis or Halo or Zelda and it's wayy to expensive imo.

I'm leaving for, a vacation, the mods will be in charge. I'll be back 3rd of january.

@ Paddy: nice banner, I'll put it in the first post and in my sig. I'll give credit, but o oyu want everyone to do so or not so I can stae it in the first pot ?

@ Paddy56 & Paddster56: please stop posting oneliners, I don't want anyone to get into trouble :).

About that contest I don't have much to play online atm but I can do some Warcraft 3: the Fozen Throne matches and some Titan Quest: Immortal throne co-op :d.

Copygoo
2nd January 2008, 11:23 PM
I can do Animal Crossing Wild World, but that's not a contest...... unless we do a fishing contest! Viva Pinata can't do contests either...... but we can trade stuff........



Those are pretty much all my online games...... but I can try Frozen Throne, though I've never tried it. Only the other type of WOW.

Bert
2nd January 2008, 11:33 PM
Frozen Throne is a strategy game, it's not anything like World of warcraft :p. Tough i's just as cool and the story is much better ^^.

If you have it and the other members agree I'll start up a tourney.
Of course, I'm horrible at it too so meh :p.

Oh btw, I can also play metroid prime hunters (I'm bad), Mariokart ds (I'm bad) and Pokémon D/P (I'm pretty good).

Bert
12th February 2008, 6:18 PM
Wow, yeah sure. I'll add you to the list. I tought this place kinda...died actually :).
I'd advise against posting oneliners i nthe future tough, the mods are very strict on it (understandably so) and I really wouldn't like any gamer or member to get in trouble.

Anyhow, since it's a gamers life, let's talk about it.
When do you game? How long? Are you addicted?

I have to say I was quite addicted in the past, it has sort of calmed down tough lately (I still embrace the faith, no worries). I mostly play at weekends or on wednesday afternoons (no school then). Usually, I game all day logn in the weekend, with some 30 minute breaks in between to protect my eyes from burning. At wednesday it's a bit less tough, because even tough no school, you still have school the day after and studying is advised in the higher grades.

That's not the point of gaming tough really. Gaming is about enjoying the fragment 'the Game'. Gaming is my Force, my Matrix, my One Ring if you will. It keeps me happy (tough I don't need gaming to be happy, gaming usually makes me more happier than I already am) and it's the source of my enjoyment, alongside making music and hanging out with friends.

That is just my opinion on game, and unlike some medieval popes, I won't force it on to anyone. For the heart of the gamer is where the true faith lies.

May the gods of gaming bless your thumbs, pwnage be with thee.
