View Full Version : Looking for some new gaming friends

30-09-2011, 11:56 PM
Hi first a little background info: I'm a PC gamer from the UK and I'm keen to make some new friends to play games with, chat to and generally have a nice time. I don't meet many gamers in my day to day social circles so I figured its worth a try putting a shout out on some of the gaming sites that I frequent. So without trying to make this sound like a "personals" ad I'll put some general info about me here and if you think you might like to play some games and get to know me then send me a PM and I'll add you to Steam/Skype and see how it goes!

About me: Like I said I'm a PC gamer through and through have been since before I hit double figures. I'm in my mid 20's and I am into a pretty wide variety of games. I do have various tastes in music/films and other things but gaming is my biggest hobby and playing multiplayer / coop games is by far my favourite way to spend my free time. I'm pretty social so I like to chat with people so it would be cool if you use Skype too as it's nice to be able to chat about whatever - and even more useful when trying to play stuff - but please have a decent mic/headset as listening to speaker feedback/echo sucks! Oh and it would probably be best if you also live in the UK - I don't have anything against people in the rest of the world but the whole timezones thing and latency kinda makes regular gaming a little more difficult.

Games I'm playing at the moment: Civilization V, Baldurs Gate 2 (soon to be followed by the Neverwinter Nights 2 campaign), Borderlands, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Magicka, TF2, Dawn of War 2 Retribution, Starcraft 2, Sanctum.

Games I'm looking forward to: RAGE, Trine 2, Torchlight 2, Diablo 3, Borderlands 2, Aliens Colonial Marines, Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, Saints Row 3. Probably some others I forgot.

Hello! And yeah, the gaming groups are a good place to start looking for people to game with. Make sure to check out the Dungeons & Dragons Online thread (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?1490-Rock-Paper-Dragon-%28D-amp-D-Online%29), there are lots of people pretty much at the beginning of the game right now, so jump right in, most of us are rolling Free to Play.

Don't do it! Its a trap! In all seriousness, join the RPS steam group and hang about in the chatroom. If you want to play a game, just ask if anyone else feels like playing it. You can use our community mumble server too!

Feel free to add me. I play a wide variety of games. But I do intend on playing a lot of BF3 once it's released. I'm from the South-West but don't be afraid, I don't sound like Jethro!

Feel free to add me too, I am not a massive online gamer, but always welcome a chat or whatever. Usually on Steam and sometimes in the RPS chatroom too :o)

Steam ID is the same: Riaktion
