Out-of-Forum Games Meeting Point

Postby LooksAndSmiles » Thu Feb 28, 2013 3:06 pm

There was a thread in the original forum where players assembled to do other games together, like MineCraft. I haven't seen this re-started, so feel free to use this thread as a meeting point to that goal!

If you'd like to play a game, please post it here, it will be added to the next post!

For the sake of easier tracking, please include these at least:

Game Name/Site - Your availability/preferred time to play - do you have voice chat? (Skype, Mumble, TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, etc...)
(+ optional additional info)
Inventing forum games since '10 ...
Skill Table Cheat Sheet for my players in the Minesweepers game.
Random dragons I help growing up:ImageImageImageImage And my own dragons are here. The hatched ones like the clicks! :D

I have stickied this thread as was the case in the previous forum. :)

I hope you wouldn't mind if I'd edit in any "events" I or other people have planned? :P

Also I would totally start of with an event but I'm gone for the weekend. Maybe next week? What would you guys want to do?

I might enjoy some minecraft. Either a server game if anyone has a server, or I might do a Let's Play and post pics, acting according to the voices in Steve?'s head.

I will be honest, I started this thread because I wanted to invite people over BoardSpace. It has many interesting board games (like Hive), which I utterly, UTTERLY fail at playing, but they look fun. I had hoped maybe some of you would join me up?

I also would like to play some Magicka. :)

EDIT:

Mort, Feel free to edit in any events that are organized... :)
(You can also add game / player lists too as I only frequent the forums mostly during evenings - or a quick glance from work at day time)

I play minecraft too. I know some already played once, but it was not at a good time for people in europe. I typically play in the evenings between 20 and 24 o'clock (german time).

Actually I think most of us were from Europe? It was like... 9 o'clock till midnight for me I think.

Anyways, who says we do that again next friday? Like, say, starting... 8pm GMT? Was great fun the last time.

Can anyone think of a way for people like me (who don't have Minecraft) to watch what they're doing? Last time I had to settle for just listening to their voices as they were horribly murdered by skeletons, which was only partly funny.

It wasn't just a skeleton, it was a skeleton and his merry henchmen.

As for watching us... I don't think it's possible to share a videofeed with multiple people at a time unless your a premium member... HOWEVER... I think it might be possible to open up a different conversation with someone else, and then share a videofeed with him- Which would you get a single POV?

Or you could just buy Minecraft ye greedy bastard. :P

Can you have a video conversation open at the same time as a group one? I thought it wasn't possible for some reason.
I'm at work, so I can't really check that now.

Also: but I need my moneys for chocolate and Irn Bru! :gonk:

Seriously though, my main problem with it is that playing on a laptop is super difficult. Touchpads make any mouse-controlled game almost impossible to use without contorting your fingers in painful ways.
However, I've been trying to figure out how to plug in my PS3 controller. If I manage it, and it becomes easier to play, then I probably will fork over the moneys.

It's a laptop. You think I'm capable of using a mouse in mid-air, or on the arm of a sofa?

I only ever use my laptop when I'm either lying in bed, or sitting on a sofa/armchair. There's literally nowhere to put the mouse.

...

Buy one of those things you can lay your laptop on and then use your mouse while in bed!

Or just go sit at a desk. :P

I'm mostly joking, of course. :P

I think I played in my bed aswell on my laptop :P
But I guess I could try to use twitch tv or ustream to see if that works without killing my connection
