The Gunslingers is an oasis for parent and hard working adult gamers from around the world that was formed back in June, 2007. The underlying 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!

I hope everyone had a fun New Years! 2013 is now in full swing. The kids are back in school, the workplace is back to lecturing you about productivity, and we STILL don't have hover cars.
What we do have, however, is another year for gaming. Here is a quick list of some recent updates for the clan for parent and hard working adult gamers, the Gunslingers:
1.) January 2013 Member Spotlight. We have started the New Year with another edition of the Gunslinger Member Spotlight: a monthly tradition of interviewing a random GS member and learning some things about him/her that we may not otherwise get to know through the course of gaming. This edition features none other than the ever popular, GS*Yuuuki! She has been with GS for a few years, so find out more about her here: http://gunslingergaming.com/wordpress/
2.) '80s Classic Added. Who didn't love the 1980's? Well, besides the USSR or the Cobra Kai in Karate Kid. Well, being a gaming clan with plenty of members who grew up in the '70s and '80s, we have installed the classic quarter eater, "Lunar Command", into the custom Gunslinger Arcade! Can you get the high score? Atari joystick not required.
3.) Gunslinger Raffle. For our members playing in more than one game (or even platform), we are starting 2013 off right by giving away two Xbox360 copies of Elders Scroll: Skyrim! Reply to the following topic prior to January for a chance to win. It is that easy! Thank you all for supporting GS throughout 2012! http://www.gunslingergaming.com/phpbb/viewtopic.ph
4.) New Forum Features. We are always looking for ways to improve the GS homebase for our members, and have added several features to the Gunslinger Forums. Now, members with Twitch Live feeds have their own forum section to broadcast their channel for other members to watch. Additionally, if you find a Twitch channel you find particularly interesting and would like to share with the rest of the group, you now have the ability to embed them in your forum posts. Speaking of embedding, you can now also add either your PSN player card or your Xbox360 gamertag card (or both!) in any of your posts or signature with a simple click of the button. Finally, some of us on the Nintendo Wii and Wii U like to use Skype as our voice chat program, so that is why you can now include your real-time Skype status in any of your forum posts or a signature. Stay tuned for more updates! I have a whole checklist to go through!
Thank you all again for reading the recent events of the Gunslingers. We are proud to provide an incredibly active and evolving home for parent, adult, and mature, casual gamers from around the world in 2013. If you haven't yet joined the party, consider yourself invited.

That's kinda cool that as a clan you guys hold your own awards!
Thank you! We have done the GS Games Awards for the last three years. It is fun to see which games members have been playing besides the obvious and how those titles left an impression.
While the rest of the gang (or, in light of our clan's motif, chain-gang) is in game enjoying Frosty Pints---our weekend tradition of grabbing some brews and sharing some games---, I thought I would sneak in here and share the latest update on the Gunslingers front.
Forums have whole sets of short code or tags to utilize while posting. Some communities create customized tags for specific purposes, such as posting streaming game feeds. We, the Gunslingers, do both in the GS Forums and are taking the customized user experience a step further. Upon request, any member can have his/her own forum code!
For example, my GS Forum code would be "[McMurphy][/McMurphy]". Maybe I would want my game stats to show up anytime that is typed. Maybe I would like my signature banner and a brag-worthy gameplay video to be displayed anytime those tags are typed. Now, GS members can do just that!
As a band of fellow adults, parents, and mature, casual gamers, we are always welcoming the like-minded to join in on our fun. Come share in our cheer!
Happy Frosty Pints everyone!
