Welcome to the "Veterans Club".

I'm Blud. Former Marine, 1995-2008, MOS 0311, 0369, 8411. I work as a life agent and currently attend school working towards my AA in Phys Ed. Plus I love to game! I get it in when I can, but lately, hasn't been much. 

Thanks for joining up! We'll see where this goes, but for now, we're just here for casual conversation and a place to hang out. Let us unite as veterans of our various services and share the comradery of our service together. 

Please post who you are, what branch of service, how long did you serve, the job you had. Tell us who you are! 

OORAH!

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Ladies, Gentlemen and Everyone Else,

VictorJulietGolf here aka the biggest POG on this site, USMC 2014-2018, 0651 

Typed "Veterans Gaming" into Google and this is the first site listed and it looked active, figured I'd give it a shot. Been gaming since I could walk, didn't get into online gaming until after I came back from deployment and spent most down time in the bricks. Been playing Squad since COVID hit and the gen pop on there is mostly keyboard warriors who wouldn't dare be seen at a recruiting station, so I'm hoping there's a few users on here that hop on from time to time and wouldn't mind getting into some sh*t on a Squad server. I have Arma as well but I haven't been able to wrap my head (and hands) around that, but I'm willing to try. Really hoping to direct my own IP development one day and really give COD and Battlefield a run for their money, hoping to have some professional conversations on here as well. Hope to see some yall online.

Sup warrior, welcome aboard! I'm glad you found us most of us are fairly active and play the games you're into. You should get Project Reality installed and give that a try if you haven't already. I'm Blud I founded the site 10 years ago and we're still here. I also play CoD but I'm stuck right now waiting for my new pc to get here next week, the one I'm on is having power issues. I look forward to gaming with you! You're also invited to post an intro in the introductions area of the forum. 

OORAH!

'Rah Blud, thanks for the welcome.

Interrogative: Is PR still a Mod for Battlefield 2 or is it a standalone program nowadays? I never got into it but I know it's the predecessor to Squad.

I was fairly active on Modern Warfare (2019) because the engine, gameplay mechanics, and even the community really harkened back to the old Infinity Ward Installments (before West and Zampella left it to found Respawn), but Cold War has once again turned me off to the series completely. Just not a fan of the way Treyarch builds their games. 

I don't have a rig but rather I'm subscribed to an emulator service called Shadow, lets me run Crysis at max graphics 60 FPS as long as my internet is solid, and on my Alienware M17x from 2008. All I had to do was upgrade it from Vista (lol) to Win 10. Shadow costs about as much as Netflix but I've avoided the hardware maintenance and upgrade costs usually associated. And it cuts down on space, which is everything in an apartment in Harlem.

Been watching vids of ARMA for years but when I finally played it I was completely overwhelmed, might be easier with comms and real people.

Yes PR is stand alone. I've never heard of shadow but it sounds rad. My 1st pc was an Alienware from 98 LOL. I still have it. As far as Arma, it kicks my ass too, I don't play it enough to remembering everything I forgot while not playing so I just stay stuck, but the basics are all you need to have fun and we have guys that can definitely help out and will.

Hello Warriors,  Joined the club on 23 Jan and found the VG website before that.   Located this awesome website while trying to sort out my TM Cougar HOTAS, and I am very happy I found VG.

I served in the US Marine Corps from 1982 to 1993 as an 8151/0311/0341.  I had tours at MBRKS  8th & I, Wash DC and 2nd Bn 4th Marines, 8th Marine Regiment, was on the 24th & 26th MEU/SOC's, I Served as Squad Ldr & Mortar Section Leader (60mm) during my time in the GRUNTS.

I EAS'ed in 1993 as a Sargeant E-5 and took my second "Oath" with the FCPD (Northern Virginia), did 25 years in Patrol Div  (23 yrs on Mids), and Retired in 2018.  

I loved what I did and the Fine folks I served with, it is awesome to find other Warriors to enjoy gaming as much as I do.  See You in the skies  !!!!
