UPDATED - NEXT @20:00GMT 1st October

Hi everyone!

By posting this, I feel like this will become one of those Facebook parties where the entire house gets trashed... Crossing my fingers that it will not be like that!

Just for the fun of it, a few of us are trying to hold a gaming night - So far it looks like there are going to be quite a few people from Super User and Gaming Stack Exchange... but, everyone is welcome!

We are going to be playing TF2, and it will start at around 20:00 GMT on 1st October 2011 - It will run until people get bored!

It has a chat room where you can discuss.

Hope to see you there!

All details are available in the Chat Room.

(sorry for late notice)

Seeing as you don't clarify, what is the date of this event? Is this happening right today? –  Grace Note Feb 11 '11 at 21:41
    
@Grace Note - Feel like an idiot, it is tomorrow (updated post!) - there is an event and we say it a lot in the chat... it slipped my mind to post here. –  William Hilsum Feb 11 '11 at 21:45

I volunteer to help by playing an unrelated game in single-player mode. –  mmyers Feb 11 '11 at 21:50
    
@mmyers - spoil sport!... but funny +1 ... I hope if you are free, you will join in! –  William Hilsum Feb 11 '11 at 21:52

+1 Tempting. If everybody had decided to join up and help me take care of some deadlines here at the office, it would be much more fun ;) –  Jonathan Sampson Feb 11 '11 at 21:54

I'm going to play a round of Minesweeper in you guys' honour. –  Pëkka Feb 12 '11 at 0:27
    
I'm upvoting this because I support the idea of SE gaming, but this is definitely too localized now... gotta vote to close. –  Pops Feb 13 '11 at 23:52
    
Why too localized? It is for everyone! ... And please no one close - we are planning on doing this weekly/monthly. It is pointless starting a new topic each time, I will simply edit this and change the dates. –  William Hilsum Feb 14 '11 at 9:47
    
@Wil, oh, I didn't realize you were going to keep reusing this post. I thought it was just an announcement for something that already happened. I retract my close vote, at least in spirit. (Great tags, by the way. It's amazing that they actually line up in the proper order with the automatic sorting.) –  Pops Feb 14 '11 at 16:02
    
How did I miss this!?! :( –  John Mar 9 '11 at 18:18
    
@John - Don't worry, the next one won't be too far away. Monitor/favourite this thread and I will update the date next time there is an event. –  William Hilsum Mar 9 '11 at 18:28
    
Done. However, I don't have an Nvidia or ATI card. Is there another way to get the game? Or maybe next game could be one that doesn't require an Nvidia or ATI card? –  John Mar 10 '11 at 3:13
    
@John - Go in the chat room and ask - games and settings are all open for discussion. As for Nvidia or ATI, can you log on to steam from any computer with one (doesn't matter how old, doesn't need to run the game) - once activated, you can play the game on anything with the steam account. –  William Hilsum Mar 10 '11 at 3:18

@Jeff booo! Spoilsport. That was a worthy tag. –  Pëkka Mar 12 '11 at 17:42

We played for what, an hour and a half, and it was pretty good fun. HL2:DM is a horrible game but is easy to pick up. (plus an incredibly small download if you already have certain Source games - I thought I was going to miss it because I didn't already have the game half an hour before we started, but it was a 30MB download)

I may be a little biased though. Wil requested I posted the screenshots I had, to "encourage more people to play next time"

I'll update this sometime to record what we've done. Eventually. –  Thomas McDonald Oct 1 '11 at 19:31

Wil didn't post the server info, but barring any changes before then:

Server: hl2.ocrtf2.com:27015 / 206.217.135.94:27015 password: stack

It was a ruse my good UK friend! @Wil –  KronoS Feb 11 '11 at 22:45

I haven't actually played hl2:dm, but I play a ton of CS:S and I played through HL2, so I won't be entirely unschooled. Looking forward to it if the schedule allows, but right now I think I can't make it unless you're still going like 7 hours later.

(I want to lie to pros as I know I will be rubbish, but can't!)... I did a survey and the majority of people wanted 6PM Uk time.... In chat, there were quite a few people wanting a later time slot. Feel free to go to the chat room and organise one yourself - the survey was awkward enough, so if you know a better way, give it a try! ... It is a community thing, got no problem with people doing/organising stuff themselves. –  William Hilsum Feb 12 '11 at 1:10
    
do you think you can make it this time? –  William Hilsum Feb 18 '11 at 19:48
