SparkPeople Console Gaming/Computer Gaming or Addict Team Messageboard Activating Team Anyone out there? LOL <em>213</em> Tue, 8 Mar 2016 23:15:42 EST Hi All Hi All, glad to be here. Peace :) Sat, 24 May 2014 12:25:40 EST For those that play Rift I am inviting anyone that enjoys playing Rift or even wants to start playing it, now that it is free to play to join the Among the Shadows guild that I recently got promoted to guild leader of. It is on the Wolfsbane shard, it is a casual adult guild, we also like to help our members so if you need help with quests or have questions just ask. You can look me up as Crystallas in game for an invite, or you can look up the guild thru the looking for guild tool bar in game. The guild does have a ... Fri, 4 Oct 2013 16:55:10 EST Hello all! Been on this site for about a week now but finally getting a chance to get on here to post and do more with the site before (I was using my kindle fire to track, and it's a bit harder to post on there than it is on a regular computer). <BR> <BR> Anyway, my name's Jeana. I'm 30, from Illinois. Mother to one (10 year old boy), and been in long term relationship for 5 1/2 years. I work in collections. Overall busy life and lots of stress. Thats why I wanted to join this site to hope for more a... Fri, 14 Jun 2013 17:13:08 EST Hello, hello! Hopefully I'm not too late to this team! Looks inactive at the moment. :( <BR> <BR> Anyway. I'm Lauren and I'm addicted to MMOs. :) I'm currently playing SWTOR. I was mainly a hardcore WoW raider in the past but quit when SWTOR came out as I was bored since playing since release. I've tried just about every MMO out there and actively played Rift, Aion, LotRO, etc. before I got bored with them. <BR> <BR> I joined Spark in August, looking to lose weight and I'm here just trying to make some ... Tue, 31 Jan 2012 12:41:54 EST Hello, keep the team going... Just saying hello. Need a post in here to keep the team active....not sure why at this point. Thu, 15 Dec 2011 19:28:19 EST What MMO's are you playing? I see several threads concerning individual MMO’s, but I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread where everyone can post what MMO’s they are playing. That way everyone can see all the games that are being played easily and might learn of a game they didn’t know about and might want to try. <BR> List the game, at least your main character, and server if applicable. <BR> <BR> My main game is Guild Wars (Zyr Lander). <BR> <BR> Other games I play: <BR> <BR> Dungeons & Dragons online... Fri, 18 Mar 2011 11:20:12 EST Gaming Podcasts Most of the interest I have in particular video games comes from discussion I hear on various gaming podcasts. Does anyone else follow gaming podcasts, and if so, which ones. Below are some of my favorites: <BR> <BR> VanHemlock News and Topic shows ( <link> </link> ) <BR> <BR> Massively Speaking ( <link> </link> ) <BR> <BR> MMO Voices ( <link><BR>oices </link> ) <BR> <BR> GuildCast ( <link>...

Wed, 5 Jan 2011 07:27:40 EST Sims 3 Hey everybody, <BR> <BR> Are there any Sims 3 players out there in cyber land? I've noticed that this isn't a very active team. If we're not working out then we're probably gaming with no time to post stuff here! Sat, 13 Nov 2010 00:20:54 EST Please: Need info on Wii fitness and similar games Hi everybody, <BR> <BR> I think about spending some serious money on a fitness console game, like Wii fitness. <BR> <BR> What I hope for is that it's fun, stays interesting after the first few trys (so there should be new stuff along the way), that there's a good control of me doing the right movements and of course it should be effective training. <BR> <BR> What do I need to buy? So far my entertainment equipment consists of a laptop. (Really. No tv, no desktop computer.) Will I need a la...

Tue, 7 Sep 2010 11:42:38 EST Needing HELP from someone that knows! I switched my computer back to default. It was loaded down and thought I might have a potential virus because it was running too slow. Well speed is great now, BUT when I try to watch online streaming video, such as youtube, hulu, the news it freezes up. Says buffering for a LONG time then starts up and plays a while but buffers again. VERY FRUSTRATING! I have researched it but have not come up with the answer. I checked my connection speed, good, even had the cable guy out. Did a ping... Tue, 24 Aug 2010 07:21:31 EST Computer Internet addict I admit I am addicted to my computer. I can go(and have gone) 2 weeks with my TV unplugged. If I'm home and awake, I can't go 2 hours without my computer being on. <BR> <BR> My initial addiction came from being a former bookworm. I discovered fanfic, and goodbye to buying books. Down to occasional trip to library. Tied into fanfic is reading blogs on Livejournal and Dreamwidth. <BR> <BR> For online games, I spend time at Through coke reward points, I managed to get a free clubpo...

I'm a big time computer guy... though not as much as back in high school. I'm going to ITT Tech for computer programing. I love video games, but in-particular I'm a big fan of first person shooters.

I Game on both and my PC. But i want to get it for the console what do you suggest Thu, 11 Mar 2010 12:22:36 EST Hi everyone I had been apart of this site before, but my goals were set to "maintain" and so I never got many results because my diet was still much higher in calories. At the time, of course, I wasn't too interested in losing weight. Now I have a new account for "losing" even though I don't wish to lose much. I mainly want to lose some body fat, tone up and strengthen my muscles, and just have better cardiovascular health. For exercise, I enjoy Zumba (my favorite), yoga, running, swimming, elliptical, f...

Congrats! Looks like we've all been being very healthy gamers. <BR> <BR> I just got the last team digest and this time I actually read it before deleting it. <BR> <BR> Wow, we are doing well! Not to boast, just for the sake of comparison: In some other team my fitness minutes got me right to place one. In this team I barely made the fifth place and my meager 40 minutes/day average. And very justly so because Jeztrem managed to do three times as much. I'm duly impressed! <BR> <BR> As far as I can se... Wed, 28 Oct 2009 15:28:58 EST Hiya fellow gamers I am a father of 3.

Mon, 1 Sep 2008 00:52:10 EST EverQuest, anyone? Hi, I'm new here and wondering if anyone plays EverQuest at all? My husband and I both have wizards on Bertox (lvl 78/79). Thu, 3 Jul 2008 09:13:32 EST Competetive Workouts I just wanted to put an idea my room mate and I came up with out in the open. We are both pretty big Halo fans, and we are both trying to lose weight, but have trouble exercising just for the sake of exercising. So, we get together and play Halo matches, and whoever does the worst has to do an exercise (example: 10 pushups, etc.). It's a lot of fun, it keeps us doing it, and it really helped us. I thought I'd give the idea to you, and see what you thought. Mon, 16 Jun 2008 18:22:30 EST Age Of Conan Anyone playing this one now? <BR> <BR> Just started myself. <BR> <BR> On server Omm (PvE server) <BR> <BR> Got a lowbie Barb and Priest of Mithra. <BR> <BR> Still in All Out Assault. They are huge on that server now. Fri, 13 Jun 2008 01:18:44 EST Think Geek Stepper I ran across an exercise item supposed to help gamers to keep up some form of exercise. It's a step machine that goes under your desk. It's connected to you PC so if you stop working out, the keyboard and mouse stop working. <BR> <BR><BR>sories/9ff5/ Tue, 10 Jun 2008 11:42:18 EST Keyboard & Mouse I am a long time Computer game player, I leave the <BR> console games for my kids. <BR> <BR> I play mostly FPS games Call of Duty series, Battlefield 2 & 2142, HalfLife 2, Unreal Tournament. <BR> I have played one single player game recently called <BR> The Witcher. <BR> <BR> I am also one of the leaders of a gaming community called DropZone. <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> At the moment we run game servers for <BR> Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2 and Call of Duty 4 ...

I'm a huge all around computer nerd. I play almost all games imaginable on this thing. Right now my addictions are COD4 and LOTRO (a FPS and MMORPG). I'm pretty much my friends and family's goto guy from computer problems seeing I build them all the time for them and troubleshoot any issues they have. I know a little of this and that as far as software and programming but nothing too in depth. Only 25 yrs old but I remember the old DOS days (for me at least) and my first comput... Tue, 22 Apr 2008 13:39:04 EST Halo 3 Any casual players? The kind that don't talk trash and play to have fun? Looking for occasional games. Mon, 21 Apr 2008 18:24:57 EST Hiya'all I think maybe gaming is why I'm in this pickle. My avatar says it all. Hi to everyone! Mon, 21 Apr 2008 12:54:34 EST New here and FFXI addict Hi all. I play FFXI in my free time but I am still making working out a priority. Just wanted to team up with you all. <BR> <BR> Sara Fri, 28 Mar 2008 13:58:44 EST New here :) Hello everyone. I saw this sparkteam, and I HAD to join! ;) I have a love affair with: <BR> <BR> Wii, Super Nintendo, Xbox, Xbox 360, Neopets, DDR, Guitar Hero, and there are probably a few more games I forgot to mention. ;-) <BR> <BR> I look forward to getting to know you all. <BR> <BR> Faete Mon, 24 Mar 2008 13:26:23 EST Computer gaming addict! Hi! I never had a console game growing up but did have a computer, and became hopelessly addicted to first person shooters and strategy games like Starcraft. I don't own many games just so I'm not on my comp all the time... Good enough start there, how's everyone else?! Thu, 20 Mar 2008 14:45:01 EST Lord of the Rings Online Players? Any of you out there? <BR> <BR> Tue, 18 Mar 2008 08:37:40 EST Wow diet = not working I was one of those all through high school could eat entire pizza and not gain a pound, then 21 hit and I got a gut. I didn't drink nearly enough beer to make that happen, so I ruled it a metabolism thing. Since then, I've waffled between caring and not caring, but I recently had to purchase size 36 jeans for the first time every (in middle school I wore a 34 and was 34 since until late 2007). The wow diet isn't doing it, so hopefully using this site to adjust my lifestyle will help. Mon, 11 Feb 2008 12:10:57 EST OG Gamer Hi there all, <BR> I'm glad I found this team...fits me rather well. Been a gamer since I got my Atari 7600 back in the 70's.

I've had my Wii for about 5 months and nobody around has one. If you might want to share IDs let me know. Maybe if we both have an online game we can play one day. Sun, 27 Jan 2008 11:22:09 EST New gamer on team! Hi everyone Hello there <BR> <BR> I have been with Spark for quite a long time now, but I had not searched for gamer teams...

You know you're a gamer when you register as your toon's name on a diet website. ;) I'm a 28 year old expat living abroad with my wonderful foreign husband... whom I met playing EverQuest. I've been a gamer as long as I can remember. It started with my dad playing the Atari 600 (yeah, not even the 2600 - that's how old school I am), then steadily evolved from a NES addiction to the next gen consoles and computer gaming. I still play the Sims 2, but I'm also a huge Civilization frea...

Wed, 7 Nov 2007 11:28:33 EST Question Time! How's working out going? Yep, this board is pretty quiet. With me it's probably because I know so little about the others around here. So I figure I'll ask or stay ignorant. <BR> <BR> How do you exercise? What exercise do you (want to) do how regularly? Do you manage to work out as much as you want? <BR> <BR> I bike a lot, but that's normal lifestyle for me.

It's awfully quiet....:) Thu, 1 Nov 2007 23:07:05 EST I am an online gamer I am an on line gamer and the game that I play is called Americas Army. It is a game that I really enjoy.

I really enjoy this game. Thu, 25 Oct 2007 19:31:21 EST Noob Hi I am Venom and I am new here. <BR> Thu, 25 Oct 2007 19:25:57 EST I'm over here now! Hey everyone. I'll keep this short cause the time keeps counting on pause! I've been playing video games since my Atari in 1984 and I haven't stopped. I'm currently playing Wind Waker for GC on my Wii, and playing Dragon Quarter on my dying PS2. I am a network tech and student during the day. So I'm a pretty big nerd, hence the name. Okay...long enough! Tue, 23 Oct 2007 11:56:51 EST New to the team Hello gamers! I just joined SP today and love video games. RPGs are my favorite, WoW, dragon quest, and even though its not an RPG Im a big Sims fan. Wed, 3 Oct 2007 19:14:45 EST I am so not a newbie Hi everybody! I've been a gamer since my parents bought a tandy in the 80's. I've played almost every major mmo (No, seriously..) and I own several consoles. <BR> <BR> I mostly enjoy games where I can explore, so MMOs and usually RPGs are my mainstay, but I also really enjoy FPS and just generally causing mayhem in GTA or Oblivion for example. <BR> <BR> Right now I'm playing: Bioshock (on Xbox, because I refuse to use the PC version), and an oldy but a goody: Metal Gear Solid 2 (ps2). I ... Sun, 16 Sep 2007 18:58:30 EST The new geek! Hey all! I admit it, I'm addicted to games. <BR> <BR> I've been playing MMO's for about 9 years now (since early beta of Everquest). I've beta tested several of the big names out there today - and some that are not as big. I've also worked as a GM for a couple of them. I'm not a 'hard core' gamer like I used to be about 6 years ago - for me it's all about exploring and getting to meet and know other people. I now have friends all over the world that I stay in contact regularly. Plus, m...

I joined SP almost two weeks ago and am just getting around to setting up my teams for real. I own an old-school Xbox and mostly RPG type or Adventure games. I use it mostly for DDR now. I am a total spaz with FPS so I avoid those. <BR> <BR> I also play MMORPGs on my PC. I have been and am involved in betas for quite a number of games over the last two years.

Wed, 25 Jul 2007 12:33:40 EST newbie Hello newbie here :) nice to meet you all. Anybody play any mmo's? Specifically Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar or World of Warcraft? Wed, 25 Jul 2007 00:42:00 EST Rock Band or GH2 80s I don't even know if these are out yet, but I was wondering if any of you had them? Even beta tester copies. The hubster has been bugging me about getting this rock band game so that we can play it with all of our friends, but I am leaning toward this new GH2 80's dealio. What do you guys think? <BR> <BR> Viva la 80's glam rocking hair bands! Haha. Wed, 18 Jul 2007 15:50:48 EST Activity-based gaming? All right folks, obvious question: <BR> <BR> How many of us here are doing activity-based gaming as a central part of our workout routines? <BR> <BR> DDR? Eyetoy? Wii? Boffer LARPs? What else? <BR> <BR> Me, I started out on DDR, but I just got a new eyetoy and I LOVE it. It's so totally futuretech to me, which is silly, but I never thought I'd see the day when we'd be able to put realtime video-images into a computer game! Sooo COOL! <BR> <BR> Plus, whereas you have to have sound... Sun, 15 Jul 2007 22:27:49 EST New here! So cool that there is a gamers team. I am a Guild Wars player myself. Love rpg's in general. And the newest addition to our household: Guitar Hero on Xbox360 ^^ <BR> Wed, 4 Jul 2007 07:35:17 EST I am an addict.... Hello everyone! I found this team by accident, and boy do I fit in! My family hates that I spend 3 or more hours a day at the computer, mostly playing games. I use my gaming time as a motivator to do everything. (if I lose the game 3x, I go clean for 15 minutes, etc). I dont know if this group is going to change that, or even if I want it to, just thought that I definately fit into this catagory!

I have kind of a techie question here. <BR> <BR> We recently switched our network to WPA from WEP encryption and we are using the original XBOX wireless network adapter with our 360. <BR> <BR> The guy at MS said there is no way to make it work with WPA and that we are going to have to buy the 360 network adapter. <BR> <BR> My question to you guys is this: <BR> I heard a rumor that you can flash the firmware on the original XBOX wireless network adapter and that would make it work. Hav... Tue, 19 Jun 2007 11:17:49 EST Wii Game Recommendations So... <BR> <BR> I'm a moron. I went to WalMart and got suckered into buying a game I didn't know anything about. Actually 2 games. Just by reading the boxes. One (Elebits) turned out to be pretty cool, and pretty much exactly what it looked like. The other..... <BR> <BR> Let's just say I am NOT 5 years old. I got the freaking Tamagotchi game. It looked cute and the description was "Fun interactive minigames increase popularity to win the presidential election in Tamagotchi land!" or ... Mon, 18 Jun 2007 19:25:24 EST Yay gamers! Hey!!! I am new to this place. Thank god for community searches :) <BR> <BR> I am a hardcore gamer and have been for years. I spend about 3-5 hours on a normal day gaming. Sometimes I go through marathon gaming which only calls for food and toilet breaks. I am sure some of you have been there. <BR> <BR> I looooove console gaming, and some PC. I have 480 hours logged on Oblivion (360) thus far and I am a crack addict for extra missions and expansions. I also like RTS but I haven't been pl... Mon, 18 Jun 2007 19:14:56 EST New Games that are coming out Hey guys, I didn't see a thread on here like this but I was wondering what games everyone is looking forward to with in the next year or so. Me personally I can't wait for Mass Effect and Bioshock. They make me crap my pants every time I watch the game play trailers. What is everyone else looking forward to?? Tue, 29 May 2007 16:57:05 EST New to the group Hey guys just wanted to say hello and see how everyone is doing. My name is George but I go by Suds in most gaming settings. I've been an avid gamer since as long as I can remember (I even have my Bachelor's Degree in Video Game Design and Development). I love seeing a group on here that is just for gamer addicts like me. I love to talk about, play, design and create games. <BR> <BR> Right now at home I have an X-Box 360 (My gamertag is Sudz0rz, please send me friend requests I have li... Tue, 29 May 2007 16:50:03 EST New gamer! Hi all! <BR> I'm Dawn, i'm 26 and I live in the UK! Its so great to find a group for gamers! <BR> <BR> We have a PS2, and a 360 in our household, although the PS2 doesnt get much use anymore. I do love playing Guitar Hero on it though! <BR> Games i am normally found playing are Burnout Revenge, Viva Pinata, Tetris, and i'm just getting into Rainbow Six Vegas, but i find this style of game quite difficult for some reason, so i'm really crap at it at the moment! <BR> My boyfriend is a much ... Wed, 16 May 2007 07:16:11 EST Hi people Just thought i'd say hello, i thought i'd join because i love gaming. I mostly only play on the PC or 360 and rarely play on the Playstation. My fav games are Oblivion, Guild Wars, Unreal Tournament 03/04, Quake and Gears of War. <BR> If you wanna chat or anything just send me a message, you can add me on Xbox or Xfire my SN is Morbitonic. <BR> <BR> Take care :) Wed, 2 May 2007 14:10:04 EST PC graphics card question So I'm looking at getting a new desktop while I can still get it loaded with Windows XP instead of Vista, and I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $50 to get an NVidia GeForce 8800 320 MB instead of the GeForce 7950GT 512MB. <BR> <BR> Also, more generally, has anyone else bought a machine from Sun, 11 Mar 2007 12:37:13 EST An "old fart" gamer Hi all. Been searching around for teams to join, typed in "online gamers" and found this site. <BR> <BR> I was messing with my sparkpage and even added a pic of my favorite game as the background, now how pathetic is that. I'm sure the background will change a lot. <BR> <BR> I play runescape, have for 2.5 years. It's a fun simple game, a great escape. <BR> <BR> Thu, 8 Mar 2007 17:04:40 EST Crackdown Is anyone else playing Crackdown (Xbox360)?? I only bought it for the Halo 3 demo, but wow... it's REALLY fun! And addictive. I find myself sitting down to play it for a few minutes and the next thing I know, 4 hours have passed. <BR> <BR> It's not terribly deep, but it doesn't matter because the gameplay is so enjoyable. I don't even really bother with the missions. I've just been having fun exploring the world and increasing my stats. <BR> <BR> Anyway, just a recommendation if anyone is... Thu, 1 Mar 2007 13:34:59 EST greetings & salutations Hi, all, I'm a grad student, longtime internet fiend, and MMOG player--I actually played MUDs way back in junior high, and then didn't play online games for years until I started playing City of Heroes last year. I love it--much prefer it to WoW, actually, which I tried briefly last fall. <BR> <BR> Games aside, I'm pretty much online most of the time. I love my laptop. :D It's nice to see a group like this! <BR> <BR> I started using SP in January when I decided to stop using online WW fo... Sun, 25 Feb 2007 19:17:10 EST Hello new to this group. Hello Just Started on Sparkabout 3 weeks ago. I have been working with a trainer about excersice and nutrition. <BR> <BR> My wife and i are big gamers. We both have 360's and still have 2 original xboxes. We mostly play online through live playing First Person Shooters and some racing games. <BR> Hope to talk to some of ya soon Wed, 14 Feb 2007 15:04:26 EST Hi from a n00b Hi everyone - new here! <BR> <BR> I'm not really a big gamer, but I do love video games. Some games I've been playing lately: <BR> <BR> Dance Dance Revolution <BR> Gears of War (I really dislike this game because I suck at 1st person shooters) <BR> Lumines Live <BR> Katamari Damacy (My favorite game of all time) <BR> <BR> I used to play WoW, but realized that a month had gone by and I had done nothing with my life. So I jumped ship before it continued much further. <BR> <BR> Anyway, th... Tue, 6 Feb 2007 16:43:54 EST Spark Newb Hello my fellow gamers, <BR> <BR> I have recently joined the site with a few of my college friends and friends (25 and older gaming community) I am an avid gamer and would generally rather play video games than go work out. This was most true while I was addicted to Wow and my eating habits at the time were really bad because I wanted to play from the moment I got home to the moment I went to bed. <BR> <BR> I over came my WoW addiction last spring and realized I can never go b... Wed, 31 Jan 2007 15:14:12 EST Guild Wars Has anyone heard of Guild Wars? <BR> Fri, 5 Jan 2007 12:05:11 EST A 360 finally in my home I'm buying a 360 on friday anyone have any good game suggestions? I was thinking Kameo cause its one of the only RPGS out. I can't wait for Blue Dragon but GameSpot doesnt have a US release date only Japan :( They get all the good RPG's first apparently. Im definately buying Viva Pinata as I played it at a friends house and found it really addicting :/. Thu, 30 Nov 2006 03:33:38 EST Wii Sports Training and Fitness modes It looks like Brain Age but instead calculates your "Fitness" Age and works on improving it in the same way. <BR> <BR><BR>orts-training-and-fitness/ Thu, 30 Nov 2006 03:07:05 EST Zomgs... a NEWB! Hello! Only been on a spark a few weeks and I'm gald to find theres a gaming group! My friend love to blame my weight gain on my "computer addiction" but honestly.. its just because I'm lazy. So! No more lazy! <BR> <BR> I'm glad I found a group thats like me! I play WoW and have: 360, ps2 (and no I'm not buying a ps3.. not even for final fantasy *sniff*), GC, DS and in a few weeks I will have the Wii (which I think may become a new exercise plan) <BR> <BR> So... HI! I'm glad to found ya'll!... Tue, 28 Nov 2006 12:20:01 EST How do you find time to exercise? I can spend hours with computer games, and AFAIK games like World of Warcraft and the like aren't exactly easy on time, either. Which means that often when I come home after a long day I don't want to work out or go the gym, but simply plop down and discover a few new islands or boss around my sims. (Or surf the net.) <BR> <BR> How do you manage to reconcile computer games and healthy life? Fri, 17 Nov 2006 20:35:36 EST Hi, I'm new! Any Sims addicts around? Okay, sparks-related infos are on my sparkpage, so why reiterate when there's important personal info, like: I love Sims 2 custom content, and adore and crave good medieval custom content. Other pleasant wastes of time: Anno 1501, and the vast and often scary landscapes of the internet. <BR> <BR> If I'm forced to inhabit the real world and do something useful, I enjoy learning new languages and dabbling in crafts. <BR> <BR> And since all of these hobbies go well with munching candy and snac... Tue, 7 Nov 2006 17:20:52 EST City of Heroes/Villains Hello! Anyone out there on City of Heroes? I'm on the Infinity server for Heroes, myself, global name is @Singed Fri, 3 Nov 2006 11:19:20 EST World of Warcraft Figured since we've got so many people on this team that play WoW (and we've only got one thread), I'd create a new one. <BR> <BR> Interested to see what people's Classes/Races are and what realms you play on. Feel free to post your guild's URL here if they've got one. <BR> <BR> Name: Gilthanis <BR> Class: Druid (Resto 4 Life) <BR> Race: Night Elf <BR> Realm: Wildhammer <BR> Guild: Fist of Entropy - <BR> <BR> <BR> I've also got a 60 Orc Hunter on Deathwing, but I ra... Tue, 24 Oct 2006 17:31:25 EST Games, diet, and exercise So what games do you enjoy playing and how does it effect your diet or exercise? <BR> <BR> I play Battlefied 2 and Counter-Strike Source for PC and Halo 2 for xbox and generally it tends to keep me inside more than I should be although when I go out for cigerette breaks now I go for a walk not to say smoking is good but it gets me outside.
