Outside of those two BF3 nights and the occasional bit of DayZ we don't really seem to play together much, we had a thread a few years back that went alright, never really got more than 4 people playing at once though.

I'd like to have another go at organizing semi-regular gaming nights in the near future. Either just all hopping on a server together, or trying to get something working via Hamachi,

Anyway, just checking for interest really, and suggestions of games to play. Preferably something free or easily acquirable to get some decent numbers.

Frozen throne through hamachi/garena? Had some pretty awesome maps, and you can run it on a balsa wood computer so it should be aiiite.

Minecraft, Age of Mythology or Age of Empires II are always pretty solid choices.

Don't have many FPS games, so eh. TF2 maybe, Quake Live?

I'd be down. Need to get some more gaming done on my PC. I've got BF3 and ARMA 2/Day z, but would be keen for what ever.

last few times i've tried to get AoE2 rolling it's being a pain in the ass and then half the time decides it doesn't want to connect anyway. much love for it though!

pretty much keen for whatever, probably the worst person to confirm that i could play and whatnot on a particular night but mark me down as keen ^_^

maybe even some CS: Source? Haven't given that bad-boy a whirl in years!

TF2 is free now eh? I haven't even played it but could easily dl if you guys want to play that.

I'm interested. I don't mind what games are used initially but I agree they should be "free or easily acquirable". I'm on Steam a lot so I can be contacted from there through the NZG Steam Group. The NZG Steam Group might be a good place to get attention as well.

If you guys are interested in Counter-Strike, CS:GO beta access is opening on the 14th of August to anyone who pre-orders (the game is currently $13.50 USD) and due in part to the influx of newcomers, anyone who hasn't played Counter-Strike much if it all before should fit in relatively well.

Just thought Id chime in here. Though I've never been a fan of CS really, CS Source feels a lot better than CS GO. It just has better graphics. If your going to buy one go with source (Yes opinions but I have played both take it for what its worth).

Also Blacklight Retribution is a f2p game on steam. You pay (rent) guns, scopes and other attachments and armour etc for a period of time.using in game money or actual money. Not sure if its a pay 2 win game. Graphics looks pretty good and it feels reasonably good. Just have to hope for a good connection.

I may join you guys depending on the games or time.

Blacklight has AU servers. It's not pay2win, the paid part is cosmetic, or to unlock gear early (has a leveling system). Higher level characters have an advantage, but it's more down to memorized maps and being used to the game rather than simply having better gear. Skill still beats anyone.

Torchlight 2 (when it arrives) as well, we should posse up as much as possible.

we could always take it back to some brutal AVP -> http://store.steampo...1_7_7_151_150_1
couldn't find anywhere (didn't look very hard to be honest) that sold a digital version of AvP2 (although, given its age, we could all probably just 'aquire' it if need be).

love me some face munching.

-edit-

just had a look around, Sierra published AvP2 so will probably be an indefinite no-show on steam which sucks because I remember the AvP2 multi-player being way better.

Yeah, AVP 2 is much better than the first imo. Shame the third game was pretty arse.

Anyway, Blacklight has the winning vote. So, if people would like to post whens good for them, we can sort out a date.

I'd also advise playing a bit of Blacklight before the night, just to get a few levels worth of gear.

If we play with just us, we can make it stock gear only so there is no advantage to anyone. If we try to play as a team (team feature can be iffy), we can use whatever gear we like. Once everyone that's keen has the game and an account, post your agents name in here as well so we can add each other to friends lists.

Anyone here playing Crusader Kings 2? I honestly haven't been able to get enough of it.

Would love to get some NZGers together for a multiplayer game using the Game of Thrones mod.
