INTRODUCTION

Are you interested in socializing with Defiance players your age but haven't been able to "weed out" all the adolescent gamers? Have you been unable to join traditional, time-consuming clans because, being responsible adult, you have had to juggle your free time with going to college, taking care of children, or being employed in a full time job? In short, are you interested in an online experience akin to "shooting the bull" with a group of drinking buddies? If so, then the Defiance Gunslingers is the right place for you!

MEMBERSHIP

Our clan is comprised parents, married couples, and mature, casual gamers.

If you would like to join the club, you need only to fulfill two things:


Be at least 18 years of age or older.
Register your membership at our forum: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb


That's it! We don't ask for resumes, character ranks, probation periods, or any other sort of silliness. You just want to have fun, right? So do we! If you would like to learn more about membership with the Gunslingers, feel free to visit our "Membership" page of at our website:
http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/howtojoin.html

The Gunslingers experience is as simple and non intrusive as joining up with other adults your own age and playing some games at your convenience. For those of you who like to take part in activities, events, and communications beyond that simple formula, we offer several popular, optional features as well. Frosty Pints, for example, is our infamous Saturday get-togethers fueled by booze.

Thank you for taking the time to view our clan's topic! I wish you the best in your Defiance plundering!

[*The Gunslingers clan has PC, Xbox360, and PS3 fronts. Please reply on the appropriate board at Defiance.com out of respect for their wish to keep discussions for each version separated.]

In case you are wondering how you could possibly know for sure if we are the type of Defiance gamers you would like to plunder with, we have a "highly scientific" method for that. Take a look at the following image:

I did something about that, but I haven't had a chance to play it. You are absolutely right: we are certainly into retro style gaming. It speaks the childhood of us older gamers, after all. :D

Frosty Pints!

We welcome you to join in on the premiere event here at Gunslingers entitled Frosty Pints!

Crack open your favorite brew, stop by the GS Chats and connect with fellow members for some drunken gaming fun. Going strong since 2008, Frosty Pints is a particularly great time for new members to meet other Gunslingers and to swap game contacts.

Frosty Pints takes place on Friday and Saturday evenings, which actually means all day Friday and Saturday due to having members from time zones across the globe. (Quite the bender, huh!?) The busiest times tend to be from 3:00pm PST and on.

As we do some last minute laundry before the work week starts on Monday, here are some exciting updates taking place within the Gunslingers:

The Gunslingers is OVER 6,000 Members Strong! An incredible milestone happened this week. Within a few months shy over our six year anniversary as a gaming group, the Gunslingers gained our 6,000th member. We have had over two thousand fellow parent and adult gamers join our posse since this time last year. I sincerely thank everyone for their continued support in making us the #1 home for gamers looking for a casual gaming experience!

Google Documents Now Supported in GS Forums! We have many members interested in putting together events and features for their fellow gamers. To encourage said creativity, we have installed the ability for any registered member to embed Google documents they have made in forum posts by merely using "[googledoc]" tags. Enjoy!

Two New Games Added to GS Arcade! One of the perks of being a Gunslinger member is getting access to our retro-style custom arcade in which we routinely install new titles. Of recent, we have added "De-Animator," a title based on Lovecraft's work, and "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," which is based on the television game show of the same name. Can you earn the highscore? Is that your final answer?

The GS Voice Chat Channel is Live! In addition to your in-game chat options, the Gunslingers also have a Raidcall channel that all members are welcome to use. The channel is aptly entitled "Gunslinger Gaming." It's free. It's extremely light on resources. And it is very easy to set up!

Thank you for taking the time to read the most recent Gunslinger updates. If you are a fellow mature, casual gamer looking for a gaming experience away from the typical drama, you are welcome to join us in the fun!

If you are a casual gamer, busy with life and can't meet "training sessions" set by other clans, GS would be the place to go. With over 6,000 members and a huge masterlist for Defiance, you will have no trouble meeting other casual players who just want to play Defiance without any requirements or minimum EGO Rating. We just like to sit back, have a beer and enjoy gaming.

Check us out on Gunslingergaming.com.

You will now find a link to these new sections on the menu bar of every GunslingerGaming site page, including the GS Forums, under the heading, "Gaming News." The direct link is http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/GameNews.html

If there are other publisher news feeds you think are important that we add, please let us know in a reply. Include a link. Please, don't suggest other third-party gaming site, though.

In addition to the Gaming News pages, you will notice that the Menu Bar on every site page has been changed to include more drop down menus, which will make it easier to click directly to various areas of our community, and reordered by importance.

Enjoy! :D

I know what you are thinking. You read the phrase "...clan for adults" in the title of this topic, but what does that mean? How are you supposed to know if we are the gaming group for you?

Let's throw out some pop cultural references and see if they seem familiar.

If you not only remember the character Ernest P. Worrell, but you remember him in soda commercials...

It has been longer than normal since the last time I shared Gunslinger updates here. There is a perfectly good reason, however. There was a Gunslinger wedding of sorts over the weekend. Myself and GS*Toezer married. Unrelated yet just as special, GS*Nightfury's wife gave birth to their first child over the weekend as well. :)

When we write about being adult gamers who game around a busy schedule, these are the sort of life developments we mean. I know all too often the overall gaming clan community is full of groups feuding over trumped up online dramas. Let them have it, and come join the Gunslingers instead. We are a group full of real people with real lives you can relate to.

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! :)

In case you are checking your computer, laptop, iphone, tablet, or Star Trek communicator during a lull in the BBQ you are attending, the Gunslingers clan has several updates to share!

Gunslingers Six Year Anniversary Approaching! - Yes, six years. Wow! We are less than a week away before we start our celebration month of being a group for six years. What a trip! Look for more announcements at the beginning of June.

Faster Load Times! After the virtual version of having a wrestling match with GoDaddy, we have vastly improved the load times while exploring our clan's Forums and Blog. Amen to advancement!

GS*Twitch.tv! - As posted some time back, Gunslinger members who actively stream gaming broadcasts get showcased in a special section of the GS Forums. To help members out on getting more viewers and relating updates for their channels, each member gets their own forum board! GS*Stauchabilly is the most recent member to add himself to the showcase.

Expanded GS Forum Options! - We have installed two new nifty abilities that members can use while posting in our clan's forums. First, they can now make their messages scroll across the page much like a news ticker. That includes icons and images. Also, they can post a countdown clock within any of their posts or signatures by simply typing the the date and name of the event. Both new features are a click of a button away!

GS*Chat Now With News Feeds! - Our clan's text chat page now includes news feeds of your favorite game. Simply use the drop down menu, select your game, and view the official Twitter feeds for it as they are updated in real time. It should make for good conversation starters in chat!

Thank you for taking the time to read about some of our most recent news on the Gunslingers front. Again, I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend! All kickback-minded older gamers are welcome to join us in our fun.

It happened again. Another year passed with the Gunslingers clan still in operation. Another year passed with a record amount of new faces joining what was once humble posse of a dirty dozen. Another year passed with all of us traveling together to new games for new experiences. Another year passed, and the month of June 2013 marks the six-year anniversary of the Gunslingers!

Congratulations! I hope all of you feel as proud as I am for what we have accomplished. From this time last year, we have seen our group for mature, casual gamers expand by 2,000 more members, bumping up our roster to 6,000 members in just six years. Such growth and continued success could not be possible without the ever inviting nature of you. It has always been incredibly important that we all chipped in and added ourselves to the Master Lists, sent out invites, posted greetings in response to new members' introductions, and displayed eagerness to help each other out. Thank you.

Acknowledgement must be given to the GS Leaders. They donate their time to help organize, wrangle issues, and perform group updating at an unmatched pace. If it was not for them and their collective talents, we would not be here today celebrating such a milestone. To the GS Leaders present and past, thank you.

Who knows what the future brings for the Gunslingers. With the next generation of platforms on their way, there is plenty of new territory to explore. And I hope all of you continue to explore as Gunslingers.

There are events set up throughout June to help bring us together to celebrate our sixth anniversary, and they are listed below:


Flashback Weekend - During the weekend of June 15th, the GS Forums will be converted back to how it looked in 2009. Brace yourself. ;)
Anniversary Banner (http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb) - A special anniversary version of the GS Forum's banner has been added.
Member Spotlight (http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/?p=540) - June's Member Spotlight features a member, GS** Lazer, who has been with us since July, 2009.
Frosty Pint Raffle (http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=14047) - Enter for a chance to win an actual Gunslinger Frosty Pint mug.
And More to Be Announced!

The Gunslinger 6 Year Anniversary Celebration continues!

Here are a few additional events that have been added to the GS fun:

Frosty Pints Trivia Night - Grab a brew and answer some real-time trivia, bar style!
GS Arcade Tournament - Play like it is 1985 and attempt to hold the highscore!


Also, one of our members by the name of GS*EnemyOnWheels has reached the milestone of making 1,000 posts in our clan's forums. He purposefully saved his 1,000th post to leave the following kind message about the Gunslingers:


This is my 1,000th post in the forum and I figured I would mark this milestone with a special post.

I signed up for the forum nearly 2 years ago when I was getting ready for BF3 and decided I needed to find some people to run with. I was hoping to find a small group of people willing to actually play as a team and use mics. But what I found was something so much better.

Since joining GS I have made friends with people from all over the world and in all walks of life. I play all kinds of games with GS and sometimes just shoot the breeze for a while in the chat room. With the new generation of consoles rapidly approaching from the horizon of the future things can only get better. Game devs know now that we enjoy the social side of games and seem to be looking at expanding that side of things.

So a big thank you to Murph and Toezer for making this place what it is. And thank you to the leaders for all the hard work they do behind the scenes. We might not see all the work you guys put in but we certainly see the benefits in how well GS runs. And I'm sure we all see a massive difference if you stopped.

LONG LIVE GS

If the above experience is something you are looking for in your gaming travels, you are welcome to join in on our party! As our ever standing motto goes, "The more, the merrier!"

I am sure you have seen it: A local water hole holding a trivia night to add some focus (and perhaps shouting) to the patrons' good cheer and drinking. Well, Gunslinger patrons, join me as we celebrate the 6 Year Anniversary of GS with the Frosty Pints Trivia Night!

The set up is simple. On Friday (June 21st, 2013) at 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern), I will start posing trivia questions in the GS Text Chat (http://www.gunslingergaming.com/html/chat_lobby.html). Whoever provides the most correct answers wins the event!

Be sure that the following sort of URL opens and lets you play the media as the trivia may or may not include sound. ;)

Example: http://www.gunslingergaming.com/music/gunslingersvszombies.mp3

The theme or the trivia will not be disclosed until the event start time. Please reply to this topic (http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=176&t=14132) if you are interested so I can gauge interest. That said, you are not required to sign up ahead of time to take part in the event. Merely, show up in chat while the event is taking place.

Grab those frosty pints and put on that thinking cap! See you then! Cheers!

Today is the last day of our 6 Year Anniversary month, and there are plenty of exciting updates to share with the rest of you! Let's get to it!

The Gunslinger Gaming Podcast

http://www.gunslingergaming.com/images/gunslinger_gaming_podcast.jpg

Considering how much we all like to talk about gaming, it should come as no surprise that we now have own official Gunslinger Gaming Podcast!

The theme of our podcast reflects how we approach GS in general. Having some drinks, having some laughs, and occasionally saying something that makes each other think. But, always, the common thread that weaves through the experience is our love for gaming.

-------------------------------------------------

Site & Industry News Feeds - Now, a commutative feed pulling from our forum's, blog's, and podcast's RSS scrolls vertically on the left corner of each of our site pages. It is a great way to get a preview and quickly linked to all of the most recent activities at GS.

Additionally, the Chat Plus page features an optional feature entitled "Industry News." When selected from the "Pick a Feature" drop-down menu, you will get a scrolling feed of all the newest articles published on IGN, Gamespot, GameTrailers, Kotaku, and Joystiq. It makes catching up on the latest gaming news while chatting with fellow GSers all the easier!

YourGamerCards Support - People like to use the auto-generated signature banners from YourGamerCards, so we figured that we should make it even easier to use them in our group's forums. I have scripted in the BBCode necessary to make it possible to have your auto-generated banner show up in your posts and signatures by simply typing your gamer name within the "gamercard" tags.

Anniversary Raffles Coming to a Close - We were giving away a few items in spirit of our 6 Year Anniversary celebration at the Gunslingers. Raffles for a digital game download and access to a closed BETA both end at midnight tonight (Pacific Time).

Also, there are only eight more days left in the Frosty Pints Mug Raffle! Yes, we enjoy brews while gaming so much that we are giving away a customized Gunslinger Gaming beer stein. This raffle end on June 8th.

If you haven't entered yourself in for a chance to win in any of these raffles, time is quickly running out!

GS Arcade Tournament

http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/the80sareback/files/2010/02/arcade84.jpeg

Today is the last day to attempt to hold the highscore in the cowboy themed arcade game, "Western Shoot." The winner will have their title in the GS Forums converted to "2013 Arcade Champion." It is a classic arcade style shooter...but without the need for quarters. ;)

Thank you for taking the time to read our clan's latest updates. The Gunslingers are ever active, so if you are looking for a group that treats gaming like hanging out with a bunch of drinking buddies on the weekends or after work, there is no place better than the Gunslingers!

The core purpose of the Gunslingers is to bring like-minded adult gamers together, give them communication platforms to exchange game contacts, and to make it easier to make their in-game experience about being surrounded by folks with whom they actually want to be playing. We also know that it is sure nice to have plenty of features and activity beyond that simple formula for times you either can't be gaming or need a breather from the online circus that sometimes the gaming experience can be.

That is why we have forums, text chats, voice chats, arcades, blog publications, podcast episodes, raffles, news feeds, etc. It is also why we make a concerted effort to continuously update the clan with more features and events. There is ALWAYS something new happening at GS!

Case in point, here are a couple new updates that GSers are enjoying this weekend:

Gunslinger Gaming Podcast ~ Episode Two - This time around, we discuss a topic that I know all us older gamers like. Retro gaming! This podcast, the second by Gunslinger Gaming, features long time members Freddy, Korchie, **** Lazer, and McMurphy. We discuss our mutual love for retro gaming, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC, The Last of Us, Animal Crossing, and childhood memories of everything from broken bones to The Dark Crystal.

"Boiler Breakdown" Added to GS Arcade - We are back to our tradition of installing a new game to our custom arcade feature at the Gunslingers website. This week, we have added "Boiler Breakdown" to our library. Try to get the highscore...while you try to collect all the boiler parts before it explodes!

Final Days of Frosty Pints Mug Raffle - At midnight, July 8th, we are pulling a name out of the hat for prize of an actual Frosty Pints mug! Time is quickly running out, so if you haven't put your name in before it is too late, Gunslingers!

Gunslingers, we have had an INCREDIBLE amount of new members walk through our virtual saloon doors in the last few weeks. Hats off to all you greenhorns, and thank you for becoming members of our posse!

Cowboy lingo aside, we have the following updates that occurred in the last seven days that may interest all of you.

Member Blogs - All Gunslinger members now get their own blogs host via the GS Forums. The blogs are even promoted throughout the site via RSS Feeds. The new feature is just another way to make your mark within the Gunslingers clan!

GS Arcade - Did you know that last week was the anniversary of the Roswell investigation? Well, as a bit of a nod (or is it a smirk?), the game "Crop Circles" has been installed into our custom arcade!

As you probably have noticed by reading this newsletter and previous posts, the Gunslingers clan puts a lot of effort to enrich the experience of our members beyond simply meeting up in game. If you are an older gamer looking for an active, well populated group, you need look no further than the Gunslingers!

The Gunslingers Newsletter (Week of 7/22/13):

We have been hard at work getting some new features up for our Gunslinger members during this lull between past Fall releases and the upcoming season of new consoles and games. Like our members, it is important to us to promote activity and enhance the community experience around the in-game core element of our group. Here is what has been added to GS since our last post:

Bu-Bu-Bullet Holes! Yes, that was a quote for the Goonies. Chunk's quote has been evoked here because we have added an annual nod to Gunslinger members who keep coming back to the posse year after year. For each year a GSer is with us, a bullet hole is added to their profile, which is also placed under their avatar in every topic view. Come on. That is worth at least one Truffle Shuffle.

Status Messages - Gunslinger members can now add status messages, whether it be what they are currently doing or a clever quote, to their user profiles.

Birthday Cake for Active Members - As a way to give a little extra attention to the active Gunslinger members who post often in the clan's forum, a special icon shows up under hs/her avatar and name in all topics on the day of their birthday.

13 Days of Yeti - Yes, you read that right. We have recently reorganized our local arcade to include more graphics and genres of games. While I don't understand why, Yeti games often get their own section in online arcades. Why buck tradition? So, for each of the next thirteen days, a new Yeti game will be installed in the arcade. The first game added is "Icicle Climb." It involves a penguin, throwing icicles, and a Yeti. Yeah, I don't know...

Robot vs Zombies - In further GS Arcade news, a game called "Robot vs Zombies" has been added to Gunslinger Arcade. Please, don't get caught playing while the boss is looking.

King of Kong - Have you seen that documentary about Donkey Kong highscore competitions? Well, the Gunslingers are holding our own. No, I will not be wearing a umpire's outfit.

Thank you for reading this week's edition of the Gunslinger Newsletter. All of the above updates are in ADDITION to the excellent in-game experience we provide. If you are a fellow older gamer looking to crack open some brews and BS with folks your own age while gaming, come join the Gunslingers!

The Gunslingers is an oasis for parent and hard working adult gamers from around the world that was formed back in June, 2007. The underlining goal of our group is to create a gaming environment that is fun yet civil and friendly for mature, casual gamers. It is a goal far too uncommon in the gaming community, and is not often honestly sought. For anyone wishing to escape the lulls of silly clan probation periods, distinct divides in community ranks, unrealistic demands of attendance, and continual ugliness of clan wars, the Gunslingers is your haven. We have attracted thousands of like-minded adults, so you are not alone in your wants.

The fruit of the Gunslingers is being continuously surrounded by folks sharing your general gaming wants and perspectives. There is plenty of obligations and negativity wishing to take up your time in your career, in your personal life, and certainly during your online travels. It doesn't need to be that way. The Gunslingers clan, however existential as it may seem, seek to inject some positivity and even escapism in your daily obligations. Come. Kick your feet up. Decompress. Be merry! Everyone deserves that, and, regardless if you are new to online gaming or a veteran, you will be welcomed by the rest of us. Share in our cheer!

Current and Future Gunslingers!

I know it has been some time since this thread has gotten attention, but that is because I am in a middle of a big move. The good news is that the Gunslingers clan is just as active as ever. Why? Well, because our entire group is composed of folks who juggle real life with our love of gaming. It is amazing how well things work when everyone can relate!

Anyway, here are some recent, general updates taking place within the Gunslingers that you all may be interested in:

Member Spotlight - The GS clan is all about the members, which is why we periodically pick an active member at random to publish an interview in our blog. September's edition features our sci-fi loving members, GS*Gaz_Bot! Find out more about his thirst for science fiction, tattoos, and microbrews: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/?p=566

Official Gunslingers Twitch.tv Channel - We have been featuring the live streaming channels of GS members for some time. Now, we have created an official Gunslinger Gaming channel in which all interested members can broadcast from...creating a channel composed of gaming content from around the world!

Football Season Tribute - American pro and college level football has begun and, as a tribute, we have added a football highscore game to our custom and ever growing Gunslinger Arcade! It is a great way to kill some time (preferably while the boss isn't looking) when we can't be in-game!

Gunslinger Gaming Podcast - If you haven't had a chance to listen to Episode Six of our hilarious podcast, take a listen! It is like other gaming podcasts...but with beer.

New Memberships Keep Coming! - Normally, the gaming community doesn't go into overdrive until the Fall and Winter times of the year. That may be true, but people keep signing up with the Gunslingers in the meantime! We are proud to provide an oasis for 129 new members during the month of August! Welcome aboard and thank you all for joining!

If you have read the above and our gaming group sounds like your type of brew, you are invited to join the Gunslingers! Finally, there is a place exclusively for older, casual gamers. Unite!
