I played this and it was fun,  but they decided to go console only ,(playstation and xbox), and shut down the servers for PC.  So the age will most likely not matter.

The mouse pics were a good one mouser. I had a elbow injury years ago and switched to trackball mice.  Started with the Microsoft Explorer trackball,  then got a Logitech Optical Trackman.  As with many Logitech trackball the left click seems to go first.  I have seen where people have fixed them with a piece of tape on the inside right on the switch. Some have tried replacing the switch,  but like was said here,  the switches available are usually cheap and don't last.  The mouse can sometimes be found on line,  but the prices are outrageous at $500.00 or more.  I have managed to get about 8 now by watching Ebay and getting lucky most for about $50. I have seen a trackball, Deft by Elecom,  bought one and it is probably as close to the Logitech Trackman as I have seen and comes corded or wireless,  and is about $50.00.  I game a lot and wear out my mice too,  but can't use a standard mouse for any length of time. The newer gaming mice aren't for me and they cost too much.  Where to find a good mouse,  I am still looking. Logitech has some good stuff but they just don't last.  Now my Logitech G910 keyboard is great and I have been pounding on it for a few years,  but then it was a bit more money.

I am trying to keep myself busy with more games,  built myself a racing simulator,  and lots of woodworking projects. Thanks for the welcome.

Where we are its Spectrum,  but we are getting 100mbps for about 30-40 a month no contract now.  AT&T gets about 6mbps and suck,  so yes Charter/Spectrum have a monopoly on the internet,  but so does our local utility for garbage, electric, water, waste water for everything else and they love to gouge.  They know you are stuck.  I hate it when mean people do mean stuff just because they can.

Hello all I am another mouse, mouse53.  I am from Redding,California ,USA. We are about 2 hours from the Oregon border and it gets really hot here in the summer,  like about 110 or more.  I am now retired at 65,  never thought I would be this old, lol.  I was a Sheetmetal Worker for many years,  a tree trimmer for a utility company trimming the trees away from the high power lines, made corrugated pipe for a while,  did HVAC installations running crews installing the duct and equipment in new homes and commercial jobs,  and was a Maintenance Tech the last 12 years repairing everything in the home for a property management company.  Had my own repair business for a while,  doing cabinets,  carpentry,  plumbing,  and light electrical.  Went back to college in 1996,  got a degree in business,  am HVAC Certified Universal for the EPA,  and a certified Pool Operator for swimming pools and spas. And I still don't know what I want to be when i grow up. I know that seems like a lot,  but spans 49 years of working. Have 3 ex-wifes,  4 sons all grown,  and 7 grandkids. I got into computers late,  like 1996,  love gaming,  Armored Warfare,  Firefall,  Couterstrike Global Op, Defiance,  All of the Myst series ,  URU online,  and Obduction.

I think mouser is doing a great job and hope to continue helping when I can.Will have to find my pics and post some here. You all seem like a nice bunch here.

As always great talent and some good programs.  Thanks to mouser and all the people who participated.

I have excellent luck with Koss.  I have had 2 sets of SB 30s and now use a SB 40.  They guarantee unconditionally any of their products purchased since 1989 if my memory serves me well.  I use them for gaming almost everyday.  The cost is around 29--39 a pair.  The only reason I have 2 sets of SB 30s is because I was too lazy to send the first set in after my dog ate the plug end off,  my bad. The first set they replaced for free after one earpiece broke off after 10 years of use.  No questions,  just a new pair.

I will add that from what I have heard,  since I won't waste time watching the garbage,  the judging has been questionable even to those watching at home.
