Old Peoples Clan

I posted this in the general discussion but I didn't realise it wasn't the Australian general discussion. So posting it again.

Hey all, is there a currently operating Australian Xbox or general gaming guild devoted to grown ups with kids and jobs who can't play 8 hours a day?

I've become extremely disenchanted with online gaming and how poorly it caters to casual gamers who love games but through the passage of time have found their leisure allowance dwindle away to barely a dozen hours a week.

I'm tired off:

  • Never ever turning on my mic
  • Auto muting all the squealing voices in Halo matchmaking
  • Auto muting people playing Linkin Park/iron Maiden/metallica at 1000 decibals into their mic
  • Getting spawn killed in objective based games by kids who just want to boost their stats

I'm looking for a guild for people in their late twenties or thirties who just want to get together online and play the latest MP games, Gears, Halo, CoD, Brink, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Monday Night Combat,  Killzone 2/3, Bad Company, Shadowrun (come on, some one must still play it) and anything else people are keen to play. Bottom line I just want to enjoy games again. I haven't enjoyed a multiplayer game experience since Rainbow 6 Vegas.

If such a guild exists please direct me to it, if not drop some expressions of interest and we'll see about starting our own.

A good friends list solves at least one of the problems you mentioned, but no clan is really going to solve the rest.

Squealing 12-16 year old idiots, playing music through their headsets and spawn-killing team mates, will always be there.

You could try clans like TOG (The Older Gamers) and I think there might be one or two more, but that'll only serve the same purpose as a good list of older friends and you'll still have to mute, or stay out of, public lobbies.

You can add me, if you like (over 40) and there are a few other regulars here who are of a similar age and should be happy to have you.

Cheers.

I am not into clans as such but am willing to play some online games. I think I have traded most of my big name MP games but the 2nd half of this year will see quite a few MP games added to the pile.

Not sure if Dad's Army is still going or if it has changed its name.

Actually I still have both Gears, Halo 3 and Reach but I think I traded Bad Company 2 and the CODs.

Nah Dads Armys pretty quite these days...a clash of personalities and rifts will scare most of us oldies pretty easily. I was lucky to meet a good bunch of guys and girls that I can game with now regularly...some really REALLY good friends that even flew across the country for my wedding 2.1342 months ago. Free beer does that

...sad it died though Dads Army, not the mariage

Anyways, I'm old and kick virtual *** daily...add away

If you want a serious band of hardcore gamers that have l33t skills and the precision of a special forces squad then keep looking.

If you want a rag-tag collection of Aussie gamers with ages 25 and upwards - and the skills of the comatose - then Mojo gaming is exactly what you need.

I stumbled upon Mojo care of a thread like this one about four years ago and I love it. It's relaxed, mature and not at all competitive.

We love console gaming, we're crap, at least mostly, and we don't care because it's all about having a good time and talking a great big barrow load of garbage.

And laughing. That most of all.

Come over, introduce yourself and try it out, but don't tell them I sent you or you'll never get in.

Pretty small at the moment but we are trying to grow into a larger community.

We are an 18+ clan and  we play a wide range of games.

We normally just play for a few laughs, but play the right way, so no cheating, glitching or talking rubbish in lobbies.

I'm 22 and I have yet to face the problem with kids playing online, then again I have not had mine for very long.

I'm a definite casual gamer. The only time I get to play as of late is either after work whenever I decide to kick back and progress further in a game or when I decide to dedicate a day or two on the weekend to just gaming.

I have mic but I it has yet to leave its package. If anyone would like to add me then feel free, I'm always looking for those who also play games in common.
