As we head into another weekend of our (in)famous Frosty Pints tradition of grabbing brews and some online rounds of gaming, I wanted to take a moment to thank all folks who became Gunslingers during the first week of February! Here are our newest GSers:
Welcome to the Gunslingers and thank you all for joining!!!
With 27 new members joining in just the last seven days, there are plenty of good times to come. If you are an older gamer looking for a group that treats the gaming experience like a past time rather than a second job, you are invited to join our posse!
The work week is over, so it is time to forget about the boss with another round of Gunslinger Frosty Pints! Grab your drink of choice and get in some online gaming with fellow adults!
Also, the Gunslingers clan got together to cast their votes for their favorite games published in 2012. The polls are closed, the votes have been counted, and everyone is welcome to read the results in the GS Blog: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/?p=469
Come and be part of the fastest growing gaming group exclusively for older gamers. It's about having a good time and doing it within your own schedule!
We finished off the second half of February (Feb. 17 to Feb. 28th) by welcoming many new faces into our virtual saloon. Let's put the controller down for a moment and give these new Gunslingers a proper shout-out! Here are the rest of the February posse:
Welcome to the Gunslingers and thank you all for joining!!!
With 62 new members joining the overall Gunslingers clan in a mere 11 days, it is safe to assume that you will find no other gaming group exclusively for us older gamers than the Gunslingers(sometimes known as the Geezer Squad)! If you would like to get more out of your gaming experience while doing so at your own pace and within your own time restraints (we are adults, after all, right?). you are welcome to join the party at the Gunslingers!
I hope everyone had a fun St. Patrick's Day weekend....whether or not you can remember what you did.
That holiday weekend marked an exciting milestone for the Gunslingers. We are now officially over 5,700 members strong! Thank you, everyone, for joining our posse. Now, we are not about the number of members. We are about the members. As a group for older gamers, we provide more opportunities to find yourself with a tight group of folks who share your busy schedule as you game around your family life than any other clan out there. If you are learning the fine art of juggling driving the kids around, taking night classes, and/or clocking overtime at work, you are invited to join the Gunslingers!
In case you are wondering how you could possibly know for sure if we are the type of Diablo III gamers you would like to plunder with, we have a "highly scientific" method for that. Take a look at the following image:
At our clan's homepage, we are also featuring an Easter related mini games to keep yourself busy as your kids are still finding that last egg you hid around the house before it rots. The games is called Easter Egg Match, and the currently high score is 16,550 set by GS*EnemyonWheels.
As March officially comes to a close, I am proud to announce that the overall Gunslingers clan gained 183 new members in the last thirty days. Thank you all for joining and welcome aboard! We are booming with activity, so we invite fellow older gamer to get the most out of the gaming experience by joining us!
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!

Your clan seems to be really good for me but ... I'm french. I'm not really good in english but I can read and "speak" ^^ Listening was really hard if the people do not articulate very well ^^
Is it a problem ?
I'm searching for people who love to farm, XP and fun ^^
Thank you !
All our communications within our clan's site is in English, but, otherwise, you should have no problems! ::)
There is a new feature at GunslingerGaming: Gaming News!
Now, without even needing to leave the GS site, you can get the latest, official news from the big guns of the gaming industry the second they are announced. We are piping in the RSS Feeds of the video game giants in the industry.
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.
Are you interested in socializing with Diablo 3 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 Diablo 3 Gunslingers is the right place for you!
We are fortunate to have over 4,000 adults registered on our homepage.
We have a large collection of parents. We have a large collection of married couples. We have a large collection of mature, casual gamers. And we have a large collection of hard working men and women members.
If you would like to join the club, you need only to fulfill two things:
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.gunslinge.../howtojoin.html
We like to ascribe the Gunslinger experience akin to having drinks with some buds after work or partying with them on the weekends. Nothing stops the music faster than a few knuckleheads, so we do have a few guidelines we expect people to follow during their stay:
Pornographic and/or obscene material is prohibited.
Self promotion by new members will likely be treated as spam. This includes promotion of own non-commercial websites.
No personal attacks on other members or various sorts of offensive behavior is allowed.
No glitching/hacking/cheating. We define such as purposefully accessing the game's programming or abusing a flaw in the programming to achieve an act or status that is not intended or possible otherwise.
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:
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.
