Game Night Thread?
A few threads have bandied about with discussions about and short meetings of vidya. But I thought perhaps it would be best to schedule some kind of organized game sessions. It's not quite as easy to do as with movie nights since these are games you have to own to join in on. However, even on a tight budget we could still set up the occasional Quake Live, Blood and Bacon or amogus session.
What day of the week should it be? Should we go across as many genres as we can, or start campaigns spanning multiple weeks such as the Borderlands series? Should we manage more regular stuff like Stardew Valley and Minecraft worlds? Would you prefer co-op or competitive titles?
Games as a social medium are healthy, poners, so don't game completely alone.
It might be hard to get everyone at the same time on the same game, but I would be up for some sessions. You might need to suggest a time and game a bit more directly or people might just passively wait for more suggestions to roll in before joining.
Well...I hate to make it all about what games I have/can get specifically, especially since I bothered folks about it on the movie night CyTube about it already, but I can list off what I got here that can be played either in a party setting or a long-term setting.
Short term games:>Call of Duty (if you're security-inclined, Plutonium has WAW, BO, BO2, and MW3)>Running With Rifles>Blacklight Retribution>Team Fortress 2>Fistful of Frags>Killing Floor/KF2>Quake Live>Amogus>Blood and Bacon>Counter Strike: Global Offensive>Gotham City Impostors>Double Action Boogaloo>Warhammer 40K: Darktide>Totally Accurate Battlegrounds>Risk of Rain/RoR2>Serious Sam 2>Slap City>Rivals of Aether>Metal Slug 3That's online, right? Not too sure but arcadey shooters are fun.>MX vs. ATV Reflex>Insurgency>Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (THE GOOD ONE)
Long term games:>Dark Souls PTDE, 2, 3, or RemasteredIt would be lots of fun to revive the online community of PTDE for a few hours a week if we did that -- you can still play it online by changing its AppID file's number to 480 for Spacewar, but just...nobody plays, basically.>Minecraft>Stardew Valley>Rust (team /mlpol/ rise up?)>Castle Crashers>Borderlands 1, 2, or Pre-Sequel>NIOH>Terraria>Sundered>Space Hulk: Deathwing>hackmud>Saint's Row 2 or SR The Third
Just a few ideas, to get the ball rollin'.
I don't have most of those. I do have the good Battlefront 2. Borderlands 2, and Terraria though.
Could organize something for weekly Borderlands then. Digistruct Peak isn't required but would be kinda cool to work on as a team of players. Do you specifically have a preference for roles/characters? I would like to work as a support character, either Axton with his distraction via turret or Maya as a healer.
I haven't played in a while, but I remember playing the robot character and trying to get sniper rifles.
Zer0? He's pretty sick, has the power to one shot endgame raidbosses with the B0re skill, go invisible, melee for huge damage, and generally pull off some sick plays. I was doggywater when I played as him in my first playthrough but his potential is rivaled only by Krieg the Psycho's.
It is a pretty fun game. I tried Borderlands 3 and they fucked the whole thing. I will be pretty nice to go back to a fun one.
A lot of people blame Anthony and Ashly Burch, or Randy Pitchford, for the writing changes between 2 and 3. Pre-Sequel had little hints that at points were genuinely just exhausting. Like when they wrote Torgue as being a niceguy, and even had an early sidequest where he shouts "FRIENDZOOOONED!" before present-day Torgue interjects that he is an enlightened feminist and sees the soggyknees of his old ways. (To be fair, BL2 made it clear he was a gentleman despite his shoutiness, but being so obnoxious and political about it, right around Gamergate when feminism was getting more and more unhinged, turned me off so hard I quit right after hearing the line.
If you'd like to declare game night to be Sunday, we could start tonight, perhaps we can post our levels before each session so that anyone joining in can match levels?
To facilitate this a little more easily without just one of us being the lightning rod for friend requests, I think we can use a Steam group in order to congregate off-thread.https://steamcommunity.com/groups/mlpolgamenight
Of course plans ought to mostly be posted here, but to join one another, friend each other, or other stuff, we can use the group. That sound alright?
I didn't even get far I guess. I just got overwhelmed by infinite talking. I found a video that showed me the files to delete to make them stop talking. Unfortunately, it broke another mission rather early on because it needs the talking to time the progression of a quest. Not worth reenabling.>>167975
Sure. Again, it has been a while since I played it. Give me a little bit and I will join you.
Borderlands 2 could be fun.
Group's still open and I'm still drunk and pliable. Did you try to join the group? No notifications yet. But if my steamID has to be published, it'shttps://steamcommunity.com/id/TotalLoliconDeath/
In case the group doesn't work. I'll be playing Maya as a faggy healslut because I've lost control of my life.
I did try the group. I guess it didn't work.
I will join you through this profile then.
Yea im still up for a game.
I know jack fuckall about Steam groups. If it didn't work then fine, I'll just accept friend requests and then I guess invite you to the group. Kind of defeating the purpose. I am dead inside.
I am so grateful I can actually relate.
It didn't last long. Grandma was a state away. And for a Californian "a state away" is kind of a long distance. But that old Donkey Kong Country cart holds a lot of nostalgia for me.
I get ya fam. We can only be glad it happened.>>168010
It was Spyro in my case. I can't remember which one, but it was on the ps1.
Spyro was the best. Nothing has really captured the magic of that game since. The music really was key, which I haven't heard much try to capture the beat and flow of those songs.
hearts of iron4 with the pony mod
deep rock galactichttps://www.etlegacy.com/
(free and open source)
all really fun games
Pony mod is good. It just is frustrating to lose after the time investment.
I suggest fighting games on Fightcade
Can't go wrong with the classics.
Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3... Now that's a game.
Guten tag, meine nigers. I'm free this afternoon and up for a wide range of gaymz today. Last week a few of us played Borderlands 2 for a few levels (if I recall, we left off just before Midgemong or Boom Bewm). The day after that I got more into Risk of Rain 2 with another anon, been addicted to that since the first time beating it and been on an unlocking spree! I think I'll give us 3 hours to pick our poison.>>168015
I've heard good things about Deep Rock Galactic, and I played Planetside 2 a long long time ago. I'd be up for either of those with folks to share it with.>>168013
I admit that I don't really play fighters. I do have Slap City, Rivals of Aether, and SF4, but none of them I've actually played enough to understand.
Here's a question.
How do we organize "game nights" while preserving a degree of anonymity that we enjoy as a chan-like imageboard? Is there a platform we can use?
The same question could be said of movie nights, but it didn't stop me much. But there are plenty of games where we can simply pick servers to join. A good example would be Plutonium CoD, where you can get an account without putting your credit card or ID to the task, and you have full access to Zombies and Multiplayer servers. Alternatively, there are some games like Dark Souls where you can simply populate the space with anonymous friends and engage in PvP and PvE as you might normally, and names are inconsequential. I'm open to those too.
I understand being worried about your anonymity, but in the case of playing stuff on Steam, if you're worried about your data you can simply minimize your Steam footprint. Don't share personally identifying information publicly. Buy Steam cards or Visa cards with cash instead of giving your card info to Valve. Private your profile information. But mlpol isn't some kind of deep web marketplace full of bitcoin scams and shit. It's a community, even if a large number of us are fully anonymous. Movie nights are one of the few things that I've tried to attend anytime I can over the years, because the chat is a place of discussion and sharing passions with one another. When the Anonfilly ponytown users congregated on mlpol briefly, I made that my home for a while, and would share stuff with other fillies over cytube while chatting with them ingame.
Gaming is a social activity that I think does a lot to bring people closer together. The site is fragmented and it's honestly sad considering what this site was for a time. I wanted to do this to bring us together again.
Well, I'll be playing Dark Souls PTDE tonight I suppose. If you have a copy of the game, as long as you change the appID text file's contents to "480," you can get Wulf's Dark Souls Connectivity Mod to locate players' multiplayer zones and invade them. I'll start a run now, and I'll level up generously as I go through Undead Burg and Parish. My name on there will be Anon E. Mouse.
I'll be home soon, thinking of just farming with anons in Stardew Valley. Low performance, not super action oriented, more of a way to relax and chat.
