As some of you already know, the Gunslingers like to ease some of the pain of returning back to the workweek grindstone by adding a new game to the GS Arcade.

This Monday we have installed classic Sudoku!  With 75 boards ranging from easy to hard, there is plenty to keep busy while we are stuck at work. ;)

Gunslingers:  Always active.  Always with an update to prove it.

One of the elements of the Gunslingers that is not often cited here is our unique dynamic via the GS Chats.  Perhaps it is because we are bunch of adults who enjoy getting together and shoot the bull while playing some rounds of games after work, but our chat tends to result in some wacky moments.  Often, I log into chat and find some sort of dialog that makes me spit out my coffee at work, laughing.  

Take today for example.  I log in to find the most current, random comment posted by Geo, "Hey guys!  Have you ever tried to eat a pizza all by yourselves?"

What?  You think you had to be there?

I agree.

Gunslingers.

I must confess how much of a dork I am.  Toezer and I attended comic con this weekend, and it was a blast.  We got to see many things (during an event so huge that, for every one thing you see, there are a dozen sights you miss), but one of the personal highlights of the weekend was having a chance to sit down in a bar and have a drink with a fellow Gunslinger, MikeyFromSantee.  There should be a "GS Does Comic Con" blog summary posted this week. :)

While out of town, we got more folks joining up, so raise you mugs to these newest members:

Kick your boots up and make yourselves at home.  Welcome to the Gunslingers!

As a nod to this year's Comic Con, this week's addition to the custom GS Arcade is the classic Rampage, Incredible Hulk style!  

Until Thor swears off mead.

Let me squeeze in a brief message on Hump Day.  You know, the day of work where you have to make up for the slow pace of the beginning of the week yet the weekend is still just out of reach.  Anyway, Gunslingers, tip the ol' hat to all of the new members we got the last couple days:

Today is the final time most of us need to punch in and out of the ol' time clock for this week, so, once again, we are on our own time.  For those of us looking to engage in a bit escapism this weekend, the Gunslingers community, as always, is rich with activity.  Take a look at a few of the events we have going during this weekend alone:

Frosty Pints ~ Friday and Saturday.  Pull that can's tab, pop off that bottle cap, or mix that drink because the celebration of the weekend has begun!  Pick your poison, stop by the GS Chat to start swapping game contacts, and enjoy some drinking and gaming with other fun loving adults.  Frosty Pints has been a GS exclusive event for over two years now.  It is a fantastic opportunity for new or potential members to gain new gaming buddies.  

Tournament Sunday: Mystery Arcade Tournament VII ~ Every Sunday, the Gunslingers host a tournament for varying games and themes to help engage you with folks in a common interest that you may not have known you had before.  This Sunday, we are plugging away at getting the high score of an arcade classic, minus the rolls of quarters.  The game, which isn't revealed until the tournament begins, is uploaded to our customized and utterly unique GS Arcade at 12am Pacific, Sunday (Saturday) night.  At exactly 24 hours later, a snapshot of the highscores are taken and who ever holds the #1 spot is the winner!  Like all Tournament Sunday event, 250 Tournament Points is at stake, which goes towards prizes such as game downloads or Amazon.com orders.  Take part in the fun by registering in the Gunslinger Gaming Forums!

August is a mere two sunsets away, and it promises to wield new GS activities and events to help keep your gaming experience fresh, friendly, and fun.  Join now to be a part of our ever growing group!

Until video games are outlawed by bitter Connect-Four enthusiasts,
Gunslingers

We humbly thank all  you adults who continue to choose the Gunslingers as your home, making us the fastest growing adult gaming group around.  If you are at least 18 years of age and are looking for a friendly, respectful place to meet up with fellow adults for some games after work or as you enjoy a beer during the weekend, we invite you visit Gunslinger Gaming.  Don't worry.  We know that you just pulled a ten hour shift, so we honor that by building a community experience built around your time restraints.

While I am posting, I would like to announce that Ren won Tournament Sunday:  Mystery Arcade Tournament VIII!  Congratulations!  You can view the results of the GS Arcade battle here.

The weekly grind has come to a close, so it is Frosty Pints time! :D

For those of you reading about us for the first time, Frosty Pints is our Friday and Saturday event encouraging folks to grab their brews, stop by the Gunslingers, and celebrate the end of the work week with some chaotic drinking and gaming.  For myself, I am going to switch things up a bit and go with some Newcastle bottlenecks (Translation:  The McCheapSkate that I am always picks what is on sale.).  We know that the phrase, "prove  yourself, and we will let you have the honor of joining our ranks" is littered all too often in gaming communities.  At GS, as long as you are at least 18 years of age and can respect civility, WE would be honored to have you!  So, with that said, take a look around our public forums, chats, blog, arcade, and other features.  If you like what you see, register an account in the Gunslinger forums and join the fun! :D

Speaking of joining in the fun, Gunslingers, tip your hats and take shots of whiskey for our newest members:  Fizd, wildewood, GOLDY -GOLDGUNS-, Wrack, Primagus, Stryper, Payback009, OppneusKorsuss, JDUB2407, frotso, derty, Crippsey, Japes, and Hillbillypimp!!!  Check out the Introductions and Master Lists sections to see their initial posts.  Welcome aboard and thank you for joining. :)

Sunday is another round of Tournament Sunday.  This time around, we are hosting our first "Chat" edition.  Take a look:
Quote


One of our main communication tools here at Gunslinger Gaming is our text chats.  It is used to help coordinate in-game meets, socialize with gamers your own age, and, particularly when there are a few drinks in us, get down right wacky.

Those are my personal favorite times in chat.  It really sends the message that everyone is getting to have fun and be themselves.  Via those hilarious moments, often, pic posting occurs.  Fluffy, a long time member here, is excellent at it.  We would be talking about a topic and he, out of the blue, will post a pic that is somehow ironically hilarious.  Let's make a game out of it!

With that, I present to you our first Chat Tournament!  

Here is how it works:

Quote
-On Sunday (August 8th, 2010) at 5pm Pacific, show up in the GS Lobby Chat.
-McMurphy (or a GS Leader designated to run the event in case I can't show) will confirm when the event is officially starting.
-A topic such as "Monkey with Star Wars" will be posted in chat, all caps.
-The first person to post a pic that fulfills the topic gets a point in that round.
-There are 12 rounds, each with a new topic.
-In case of tie, additional rounds are added until the tie is broken.


In case you are unfamiliar with how to post a pic in chat, you need not worry.  To post a pic, simply copy and past the URL of the pic you have found on Google into your Chat message box and hit send.  The Chat program will automatically read it as an image.

Good luck, pic 'slingers! :D

The weekend is over, so it's back to the ol' grindstone.  To help sneak in some gaming throughout the day while away from your consoles, "Disco Bowling" has been added to the Gunslinger Arcade.  It is just like going to a bowling alley in the '70s.  Minus that damp foot fungus smell. ;)


We were also honored by some new Gunslingers joining our posse, tip your hat to Lucia, tonyver, Richie, Twist, Merc.Sixito, Sue D. Nim, davidn2deep, and ougamer!  Welcome aboard! :D
 View the Master Lists of Contacts and Introduction sections of the GS forums to start getting to know them.

We are half way through the summer Dog Days, folks.  I can tell that people are kicking on the fans and cooling off with some gaming based on the traffic at GunslingerGaming.com.  It is crazy to think that we are already well beyond the 750 members mark.  


So, continue putting those drinks on ice and hitting those power buttons by joining up with other chill adults.  We keep it simple.  Be at least 18 years of age and register in our forums ( http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb ).  That's it!

A lot is happening at the Gunslingers, so let's get to it!  Below are updates to note since the last one I posted:

-Word Jam ~ We add a new game to our custom GS Arcade every Monday.  Currently, Ren is kicking our collective butts at the game.  Take a shot at her highscore!

-Frosty Pints Page ~ Frosty Pints has been our longest running weekly event, and has become our signature, of sorts.  To aid new and potential members with understanding our popular weekend meets fueled with drinks and celebrations of an end of a work week, a website page dedicated just to Frosty Pints has been created.  We highly encourage folks to stop by the GS Chat on Fridays and Saturdays to connect with fellow GSers.

-New Members! ~ Tip your hat to our newest Gunslingers: Sniglet, BR4CR, advancedphysics, ringo, dirtyezio1, Revolver, Geckstar, Diamantriddaren, polishmadman, Epiphanic, fatsparrow, philos, csqn, MR HOMiCIDE 101, xxPR0zachxx, mkw99, Owl, mothhop, Josey-Wales_2010, and *FNG*!  That is 76 new members in 30 days!!!

-GS Jukebox ~ The well liked Gunslinger of many gaming interests, Geo, is away for a month.  Before he went, however, he has shared another song he has composed.  "Dark Garden" is now listenable via the GS Jukebox feature found on all our chat pages.  Take a listen to his and other music created by Gunslinger members!

-The GS Red Dead Poker Event ~ The Old West is known for many things. Sunsets. Shoot-outs at high noon. Bank robberies. Train heisting bandits. Gold rushes. The texture of the American mythology is immense. There is one thing, however, that defines the very spirit of the Old West. The Gamble. Poker to be more precise. With that in mind, I bring to you the GS Red Dead Poker Event!

If you have been looking for a kick-back group of adults to game with, we invite you visit and sign up with us!  As long as you are at least 18 years of age, all you need to do register an account in the GS Forums.

It's Monday, so it's back to work.  The Gunslingers like to make Mondays a bit better, so we have some great updates to share with everyone:

New Arcade Game ~ Every week, we install a new game in our custom GS*Arcade.  This week's selection, BattleBall, is a bit of a nod to the new season of American football.  Head over to the Gunslinger Arcade and see if how many touchdowns you can get and tackle face-offs you can win!

Jenny's Music ~ Our long time Gunslinger and good Swedish friend, ShotgunJen, has been kind enough to share her uncanny musical talent with the rest of us by provided three of her songs in the GS Jukebox.  Stop by any of our chat pages and take a listen for yourself.  Every song in the GS*Jukebox is composed by a talented Gunslinger member!  

If you are at least 18 years of age and are looking for a group that treats gaming like hanging out with a bunch of drinking buddies after work, we invite you to join the Gunslingers by registering in our GS Forums.  It is that simple!

We must start off with some truly great news.  Today, we officially became 800 members strong!  Welcome aboard all new Gunslingers, and thank you for continuing to choose us.  Kick your boots up and make yourself at home as you explore Gunslinger Gaming and get to know your fellow adult gamers.

This weekend is upon us once again, so you know what that means...FROSTY PINTS!  Frosty Pints is your Friday and Saturday event when we grab some brews, stop by chat to exchange gaming contacts, and let the good times roll.  All adults looking for a gaming environment akin to hanging out with a bunch of drinking buddies celebrating the end of another work week are encouraged to join us in the fun!

This Sunday we are hosting a tournament, old school arcade style.  Play with your fellow Gunslingers as you strive to wield the high score of a game featured in GS Arcade.  The game will be revealed on midnight, Saturday, and you have until midnight, Sunday to be on top.  It is like the 80s arcade scene all over again, minus the loss of quarters and the bad haircuts.  ;)  Find out more by reading the event details.

Until a Q*Bert movie is made,
The Gunslingers.

The Gunslinger Sunday Tournament has already started!  This week, the tournament is featuring the 1981 arcade classic, Galaga!


To take part in the tournament, all you need to do is visit the Gunslinger Arcade where it is being hosted.  You have until midnight tonight (Pacific Time) to hold the high score!  Good luck, all! :D

The Gunslingers:  Where the gamers who are old enough to even remember Galaga go to play. ;)

Monday crushed our weekend fun once again, but it doesn't need to be all bad.  At the Gunslingers, we have some fun updates to share with everyone:

GS Arcade ~ Congratulations to Forming for winning yesterday's Tournament Sunday event featuring the 1981 arcade classic, Galaga!  The results breakdown can be found in the Tournaments section of the GS Forums.  Everyone can play Galaga at their leisure from now on by visiting the GS  Arcade.

GS Jukebox ~ The Gunslinger, Geo, has been kind enough to share his newest song, "Lock Me Away," in the GS Jukebox, which can be found on any of our chat pages.  Feel free to come take a listen!  Thank you, Geo!  The GS Jukebox exclusively features multiple songs by Gunslinger members, such as D.Lazer, jANK, ShotgunJen, Geo, and Balki.  

Member Explosion ~ Before the weekend, we hit another member count milestone by being graced with our 800th Gunslinger.  Now, we can safely say that Gunslinger Gaming is over 800 members!  Our growth is no fluke.  The quantity and quality of adult gamers who become members with us reflect our commitment towards the mature, respectful atmosphere of our community and our ability to provide the best home for all you gamers looking for an oasis from clan war posturing, adolescent antics, and rigid application hurdles.  We understand that, as a responsible, well adjusted adult, you are busy and you don't have time for that sort of nonsense.  With GS, simply be at least 18 years of age and register a forum account.  After that, it is all about getting you into games with fellow adults and having a good time! :D

It's Friday, so you know what that means, right?

FROSTY PINTS!!!

Come join your fellow adults as we celebrate the end of a work week by grabbing our favorite brews and do some gaming!  Head over to GS Chat to start swapping contacts and lets get this party started!  We have members from all around the world, so Frosty Pints lasts all day and night, Friday and Saturday.  10 out of 10 Surgeon Generals do not recommend trying to survive all time zones of Frosty Pints. ;)

Until Frosty Pints becomes a recognized national holiday,
The Gunslingers.

As you either enjoy your Monday off for Labor Day and become embittered over the fact that you are ironically working on the Holiday, here are the general additions to Gunslinger Gaming when we aren't playing RDR:

Black Ops Section ~ The developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops released quite a bit of new information about the game September 1st and restructured their official site for the game, which finally gives fans something to talk about other than speculation.  As the countdown for the game release continues, GS members are now welcome post their thoughts, ideas, concerns, and information about Black Ops in its own forum section.

GS Arcade ~ As a fun nod to the new Resident Evil movie coming out this week, Resident Evil: Apocalypse has been added to the GS Arcade.  Shoot the zombies before they dine on your guts.  Ah, good ol' family fun!

Master List Update ~ The Madden NFL Master List has been amended, so, regardless of the franchise year or platform you are playing, you are welcome to add your contacts to the Madden Master List.

Have a wonderful Labor Day, and (hopefully) an abridged workweek! :D
