I had never heard of Space Engineers, Ant, but you seem to like it! Smile Looks cool.

I want to play DayZ but I'm in cheapskate mode and don't want to pay £23 for it. If it comes up in a sale, though, we should play it, Kes.

I see a couple of us already have the Left 4 Dead games, Dawn of War + Dark Crusade, Company of Heroes, Borderlands 2, Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light, and then there are the free to play games like Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, Evolve, Warframe, and all the rest.

It would be cool if a few of us could get together one evening on one team and wreck some havoc/nobly fall on the fields of battle as brothers in arms. Or something like that.

The Left 4 Deads especially are ones I've only played with randos, but I reckon are 20x more fun if you try and play a somewhat coordinated game with people you know. Anyone want to give it a go?

Or something else. I'm open to suggestions. Playing an RTS with 4 or 5 players, maybe in teams, should be a laugh.

Used to do 4P runs at Left4Dead 1+2 most weeks, it's a lot better with friends than randos, but really needs for everyone to have a mic. Not played in a while but definitely would be up for doing it again, L4D2 in particular I hugely enjoyed.

Would probably be up for Borderlands 1/2 as well - I have them both but never really go into the second one - might be fun to try it again.

I'd definitely be up for some Borderlands 1 or 2, or Left for Dead 2, or something else. Also I have a headset/mic.

Sounds good to me. I've got a mic. It's preferable to use one, but I don't really mind if other people don't.

What's a good day, then? Tuesday? Wait, am I already doing something on Tuesday? Now what was it...

Thursday, or Friday, or Sunday?

One more space left for Left For Dead or Borderlands, sign up now! Smile

I should be around Friday evening, for various games.

I feel like I might have the chance to finally beat Magicka 1/2, if people have them?

Me too. Left 4 Dead 2 would be my first pick. Though we have five now. Anyone else out there going to join us? Maybe get a second group playing. Or TF2 has the co-op vs. AI mode, Mann vs. Machine, which plays six. Evolve is free-to-play and is L4D-y but with one player controlling a monster, so plays five. Or someone can come and play Portal 2 or Lara Croft Co-Op with me while the others play L4D.

I'm definitely up for Magica, though I don't have it yet. Anyone seen any good deals?

It's been long enough since I played Portal 2 co-op that I think I've probably forgotten it all so wouldn't ruin your fun if I went through it with you. Never played Evolve although I own it from the pre-FtP days so wouldn't mind checking that out too. I'll get them installing as well, just in case. Might even have the Lara Croft co-op but I'll have to check on that.

Quite a few options now! I'm happy with any of them really, in particular I'd happily play any of L4D2, Borderlands 2 or Magicka. Not quite as fussed about Evolve, but happy to give it a go if it gets the nod.

For L4D2? Gotta be the inbuilt voice tools surely, given it allows the game to interact with them (such as the awesome storm level)

For non-L4D2 we could just use Steam's voice chat, I've used that lots of times when playing with friends, it works fine.

Agreed - that's usually my go-to when playing pretty much anything else Smile

I'mma install Evolve: Stage 2 as well, cause it seems to be ideal in the case that we have five players. We've got options for less than five, and more than five can split, but five is awkward.

Plus, the game seems really cool. It's got mixed reviews on Steam, but I think it looks cools, which means it must be misunderstood, not bad, ha.

A lot of the reviews seem to be talking about the pricing model. Full price games with micro-transactions seem to really upset some people (which was the case before it went free-to-play).

One review:

Mr. Fahrenheit wrote:Great Game, Solid all round in gameplay, competitive and a lot of replayability with different strats/compesitions.

Unfortunately the pricing model is disgusting for the game and dlc.

Rating: Not Recommended.

Pretty much every review says something like "Game had so much potential, but...", and then complaints about microtransations, or about the size of the playerbase (not a problem if we have all five players between us), or about the game not being updated anymore.

There are a few questions about balance, and about server stability, the latter which might be a concern, though I'll report back when I've tested it on my computer.

It sounds like a good game that was mismanaged, and that's part of what makes me keen to try it out!

That is kind of right. I remember neing excited about it. But it is 100% a game that needs a consistent community to survive as it is pure PvP but the people that could have made up that community kinda got shit on in the beginning and abandoned it, leaving the game basically to die.

So me, Dave and Arun were thinking 7pm on Friday? Does that work for you, Ant/Samuel? It's L4D2 with 4, or Evolve with 5, so everyone make sure you have them installed!
