Like the title says are there any other female ARMA or gaming gals out there?

A little about myself I'm a married 28yo mother of 2 kids a son and daughter we live in Tokyo Japan. I work as a motorcycle police officer here in Tokyo. I also use to be a member of our motorcycle demo squad "The Queen Stars" Hence why I'm wearing a red uniform in my avatar normally we wear black/blues like the LAPD with gear and body armor etc. Btw just realized Im probably the only one who has a real pic of themselves for their avatar. Oh well no biggie you can hardly see my face. ;-)

I've been a gaming girl since I was a kid. Ive played quake and outlaws online in fact that's how I met my hubby, during a gaming tournament. He's now a Physician. We had kids way too young(15)my oldest is my daughter who is 13, my son is 7. We are a total gaming (4 high powered gaming only PC's and 4 work/school laptops or pc's)family whenever we have the time we game together.

We all love ARMA the most and we all cant' wait for ARMA III. LOL! Nothing beats having your whole family playing as a tank crew. I can speak and write English fluently as I went to high school in southern California also got a degree from UCLA I lived with my US relatives in very nice hill top community called Rancho Palos Verdes my uncle and aunt are also in the medical field. But I loved the US and had great times while there. But man LA is so crowded! Like Tokyo in fact.

So anyways if your a ARMA or gaming girl give me a shout out tell me a little about yourself and or just to say howdy! :-D

Lastly please no sexist comments ok guys. But you can stop in and say hello as we all have a shared interest.

Sorry for the longish post. Hope to hear from some of you! 8-)

Police woman by day Wife, Mother and serious gamer at night 8-) . Husband suggested my game name as Zipgun so no one would know I was a girl. Tho more importantly when I was a teen I used a more female name? Only got derogatory or sexist comments when playing games. I just got sick and disgusted of it.

Hey Sachiko, this isnt really advertising so ive moved it to the correct place "chit chat". :-)

I just want to say, your family sounds cool, I would love my mother father and sisters etc to all be
gamers and we get together now and again to play co-op games etc like your family do, I envy you.

Anyways good luck on finding any other girls out there that play ArmA, I have seen 1 or 2 other around
the forums, hopefully they will come and join the chat :-)

Your English is quite good, Elena, better than some born here. :)

But I reckon you know more Japanese words than you think.

Really nice to see a whole family playing the Arma series! There are some other female players but not that many as far as I know. *THUMBS UP*
Try the sticky thread in the advertising section."

I probably misread Mr.Fox's post. Anyways thanks for the fix. Thanks for the help and for the kind words. Yes very lucky our kids share in our gaming etc. We sadly don't get to play a whole lot maybe a few times a week as I'm a LEO and my husband is Physician. Glad to know there a some females on here.

Thanks again for the reply and have a happy holiday season.

Kon'nichiwa! Elena nice to meet you. Btw its acually "Ohayo gozaimasu" it's an informal good morning. I know there are some of us but glad to hear from one. So you're in the Navy eh cool! We are longtime friends with a couple that are also in the Bundeswehr. Yes Ive noticed that as well, most of the time only us gals post real pics. Guess were braver eh hehe. 8-) Yup I hear on playing time being a police officer and my hubby a doctor, even our kids with school and such game time gets shorter and shorter.

Guten tag und forhe feiertage!

Hey thedog thanks for the kind words and oh yes there many here who play ARMA Ive seen large competitions at conventions etc Don't forget we're one of the biggest game playing nations lol though for the younger crowd that is. TankbusterSPAFF (both of you sorry for the very late reply but I'm so busy I hardly get on here much less online) Yes Outlaws was very cool in MP as the AI was so bad lol. Remember the rules no double shotgun or going for the badges etc? Crazy times.

Take guys

こんにちは (Konnichiwa)Sachiko,
I know this is an old post but thought I'd say howdy anyway. I'm a grandmother of three. I live in Canada and I love playing Arma. I got my start in Arma 3 a little over a year ago. I played CoD since it first came out but became dissatisfied with it, since the loss of dedicated servers and the ability to create maps and mods. Then I played Battlefield for a while...but that too had the same issues. My biggest issue with both franchises... I also HATE Run and gun type play. That seems to be all it is now. I wanted a cooperative realistic type simulator. Arma is the game I've been really looking for, for years. Too bad it took me so long to find it. It certainly fills a lot of hours over the winter months. Summer it takes somewhat of a back seat to camping and fly fishing.
