    Weekend Get-Together

    Weekend Get-Together-0b6-jpg

    Mantis and I have talked about this in another thread and we thought it'd be cool to do a monthly gaming sessions with our fellow board members. We figured that once a month, we all get together and game. As for what game we would play, Doom was brought up. With the various source ports out there, it should be easy for us to set up. Of course, there are other games we can play. I'm certainly open to any suggestions. We can either dedicate this during the week or on a weekend. Weekend might be a bit better for me but with everyone's schedule being busy and life getting in the way, I think we should discuss specifically on what days it should be held.

    Anywho, if there are games on steam you want to play, my steam name is badash55. Hopefully, we can get enough folks interested in committing to this. Should be a lot of fun!

    This sound like a great idea! I'd suggest any of the Borderlands games or maybe Overwatch. But if we can set up Doom, that'd be great.
    My steam username is captcooper89. Just make sure you tell me who you are if u wanna add me lol. That way I won't decline it.

    I have no particular day preference. I imagine most people would vote for the weekend, as if you're going to consider time zones some of the American members will have only just got back from work on a weekday if they've even finished at all. It would be a good idea for everyone who's interested to state their location. There's a huge eight hours of difference between the western US coast and the UK, which means that the session should probably start by 3PM there, or at the very latest 4PM. Having said that, I don't mind missing out on some of these sessions as it would make your time arrangements a lot easier and more flexible.

    Perhaps if people stated their opinion on particular games and suggest their own that would help us decide. While freeware is good it would limit us in the long run, right? Classic Doom sounds great to me. At the other end of the spectrum I suggest a more relaxed game: 100% Orange Juice. (Though at the end of games things can get pretty tense.) It's a little like Mario Party and its multiplayer can be really fun. It can be bought much cheaper on G2A. (Just make sure you turn off that pesky G2A Shield.)

    My Steam URL shouldn't be so surprising. Also, I can't find your profile, Pseudo. It might be easier to just post the URL. Since I saw your post after I'd written mine, I'll add that I own Borderlands and Borderlands 2 but I don't have Overwatch.

    And I like the idea of 100% Orange juice. That can be a lot of fun.

    I'm US central timezone here to make it easier for us to lock in. Personally, I'm down with any of the games mentioned. I don't own Overwatch, but I do have the first Borderlands so I'd be down for that. 100% Orange Juice sounds like a lot of fun so I'm all for giving that game a shot as well. I'll get you guys added to my steam page when I get the chance.

    So now comes the next question; when do we want to officially start this? I was thinking we could do this on Friday. Or perhaps the last Friday of every month? And what game should we decide on? Also, I think we should try to use skype when playing just to make it easier to communicate when playing.

    I just made sure you're both added to my Steam account. And if you haven't already I'd recommend joining the OSN Steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/outlawstarnexus

    Your suggestions seem good. I'm indifferent though; both the following Friday and the Friday after work for me so it's up to Pseudo and yourself (and anyone else interested) to decide the initial date. Maybe we could play fortnightly if it goes well enough. Skype sounds fun.

    Hmm, games. It's probably best to decide the time of the sessions and how long they'll last. Doom matches are relatively short. I'd say 100% OJ games are around twenty minutes a game on average. I have no idea about Borderlands, but if I remember right it's just a co-op mode for multiplayer so that might require a larger time investment. How many hours did you have in mind? Two is fine for me, but one hour is okay too.

    I just joined the group so that should be good. I think next Friday is a good start though I kind of want to see what Pesudo (And others should we get more folks interested) has to say before we put it in stone. I think 2 hours is a good. For Doom, I was thinking of doing a co-op campaign but I'm not opposed to deathmatch if you'd rather do that. If it's short, maybe we can start on something light like 100% OJ, play that for awhile and then move on to Doom or Borderlands. My skype is acting funny, but I'll make sure it's in order by the time we go live.

    My fellow board users, lend me your ears! We're planning another gaming get together for this coming Friday and everyone is welcome to join. I know Mantis and I were meaning to play Doom but if someone else has any suggestions as what we could play then I'm all for it. Hope to see you folks there.

    Monthly gaming get together

    I should also have portable Halo: Custom Edition for you guys. No install necessary, kinda like Doom so we can play that as well. I'm also up for video, whether it's anime or general film/TV. While we could do Friday, since we should be gaming then I think I'm available on Saturday. Both days it'll be 10PM to 1AM (maybe later) UK time. Since I'm using the app right now I can't convert that.

    Also, do you want to use the group feature on Steam to chat? Seems convenient.
