Gunslinger Newsletter for Week of 12/12/12

Christmas is almost here. It is easy to get caught up on shopping and making holiday plans, which is why you haven't seen a Gunslinger update here for a few weeks. That, however, does not mean there is nothing to report. Quite the opposite. In fact, the following list is a quick breakdown of all the updates that have occurred within the Gunslingers---the most active clan for older parent and adult gamers:

New Members: In November, GS hit a membership milestone  by having our 5,000th adult gamer join our posse. The dynamite keeps booming throughout December. Since the 5K mark made on November 16th, 195 fellow mature, casual gamers have signed up with the Gunslingers. If you are an older gamer looking for a like-minded, laid-back gaming experience with folks your own age, come join the rest of us at GS!

Wii-U Support: The Gunslingers are representing older gamers on the Wii-U since the system's launch day. To reflect that, we have added Nintendo Network ID fields to everyone's profiles on the forums, added Wii-U topic icons as an option while posting, and we have revamped our Game Specific Chat to include one exclusively for Nintendo gamers.  These updates are, of course, in addition to our Wii-U specific Master Lists added to the site that make it easier to swap game contacts. Whether you are an older gamer who bought the Wii-U for yourself or simply logging in some personal gaming time on the system you have bought for your children, you are welcome to do so with the Gunslingers!

Updated Chats: Our custom Chat page that allows you to correspond in the general GS chat while still exploring more specific genres of gaming discussions in our other chatrooms has been given an update. Now, via a drop-down menu, you can choose from chats specializing in Xbox360, PS3, PC, Nintendo, Action/Adventure, Shooters, Retro, Sports, Role Playing, and Racing. Everything about GS is about giving you everything you need to make gaming a social experience regardless of your unique gaming schedule. Being a group comprised of adults, we all fully appreciate the fact that our free time is quite limited. Come chat it up!

Updated GS Jukebox: You probably have looked at a few clan or gaming community sites in your time. You may have noticed a pattern. Some (perhaps many) of them feature some sort of on-site playlist of music that you can listen to. The Gunslingers also have such a playlist, but with a unique twist. With GS, our entire jukebox is comprised with music written and/or composed by fellow Gunslinger members. That is one of the great things about being in a group for adult gamers. We bring folks from around the world, from different backgrounds, and wielding different talents. Now, you can listen to some of the musicians that have joined Gunslingers more readily with our new version of the GS Jukebox. Visit any of our GS Chat pages to try it out!

MP3 Support in Forums: Speaking of music, Gunslinger members are now able to post direct links to MP3 files in their posts and have them show up as mini music players. No downloading necessary, and it is a great way to share in our tastes in music in a more convenient manner. Take a look how it works at a sample topic I created: • View topic - MP3 Support Added to GS Forums!

New Arcade Games Added: We are keeping to our tradition of adding new games to the Gunslinger Arcade every week. Since last noted in this thread, Gunslinger members can add the following games to the list of installs they can play while the boss isn't looking: Knight Rider, Chap Hai Wildsnake, Jungle Quest, Mario & Friends Tower Defense, and Counterstrike!

End of the World Frosty Pints Event: Having some fun with the supposed foretold end of the world, we are having a special edition of our infamous Frosty Pints tradition on December 14th and 15th. Grab your pick of poison, slap on that headset, and party it up while you game with other adults! It is a weekend tradition that has been going strong at GS since 2008. Perhaps if the Mayans had beer and video games, they wouldn't have believed the world would end now.
