    Aww, wish I'd been there (instead of at a big extended family party where it was hot, there were lots of flies and entirely too many people for my tastes)! Have they added anything to Rec Room since we last played with the gang?

    I think the latest update added a bunch of customization stuff, outfits and whatnot. No updates to Discgolf or the Quests tho.

    This is just a reminder:

    The next Arma 3 coop session is happening soon:

    Date: Saturday, 5 August 2017
    Time: 4-6pm UK time


    As always, I'll be online a bit before 4pm to set up the server and check who's on Steam. I'll try to launch the server with a lobby mission 15 minutes before the session starts, and I'll post the IP and password on the Steam group, under the Events tab.

    I'll have to miss out due to a birthday, sadly.

    I'm pretty keen to finish Satellite Reign. Henke, Malf, Thirith, can you guys make it on Saturday the 12th?

    Yeah I'd love to wrap up Satellite Reign as well. Can probably make it the 12th.

    Quick question to the coop crowd: I'd probably lean towards playing Arma every 2-3 weeks mainly because it's the one coop game we're currently playing that more than four people can join. I'm away on 26 August, which would be three weeks after the Arma session this coming Saturday. Could we tentatively pencil in 19 August for another Arma game, or is that too much militaristic manshootery?

    Great coop session in VR with henke, Malf and Jeshibu. Rec Room is basically a Nintendo-style collection of mini-games, but it's great fun (and not a bad workout) with friends, and there are lots of lovingly done details. Disk golf is a giggle if most people aren't great at it, and doubly so in coop mode (where the floor is basically lava to the frisbee, so you need to position yourself to catch the more often than not erratically thrown thing), and the sci-fi quest is hectic fun - but my favourite was team charades, which was basically 3D pictionary.

    Any rumours suggesting that 75% of our guesses were "penis" are vastly exaggerated...

    Also worth pointing out how we reached the SHOCKING CONCLUSION of Satellite Reign.

    But yes, charades was the most fun.

    In honor of said SHOCKING CONCLUSION, here's the gripping origin story of Ned.

    Do you also have footage of his heroic demise? Not sure I could watch that again, though...

    Sadly, no. His tragic death happened amid such chaos that I didn't think to save it.

    Sad...

    Anyway, Malf has brought it up before, but I would definitely be up for some Minecraft VR coop at some point. I've not yet got into the game, but I think it'd be great to play with others, especially in VR. That is, if we've all got it *and* if the way it controls doesn't make everyone feel queasy.

    I'm having trouble envisioning how Minecraft would work with our current playtime allotment. It seems like a game that requires more than 2 hours a week to really get anything compelling out of it. Of course, I say that never having played any minecraft at all - thought I'd be better served with irl Lego, and the fanbase put me off.
    What would that time look like? Tree chopping and building construction? Digging deep?

    I think that what we generally play benefits from having clear goals we work towards, which makes the hijinks along the way more fun.
    But then we've never tried another way, have we? I dunno, I'm up for trying.

    You may very well be right - I've not played more than 1-2 hours of Minecraft, so what you're saying makes sense. At the same time, I find that in VR there's more of an element of hanging out that I enjoy. For instance, I found Rec Room pretty dull unless I first played it with henke and Malf. Rec Room's goals are pretty minimal and basically just facilitate the hanging out aspect, though perhaps the presence of objectives, however thin, makes all the difference.

    If we all have Minecraft, it might be worth trying once to see if it's fun - and if it isn't, back to the mine it goes.

    Oh, 2 hours in Minecraft should be enough to build a small house/fortress and get started on a mining operation and maybe do a bit of exploration and maybe start building a railroad to somewhere? Not sure what kinda time you gotta put in if you actually wanna get to the end tho. I think there's an end.

    Concrete suggestion: Should we see if Minecraft in VR is something that'll keep us entertained for two hours on Saturday, 2 September? (I'm away on 26 August.)

    Sure.

    Also remember to start up Minecraft VR at least once before then. As I learned, getting it set up can be A WHOLE THING.

    Also also, my Mojang account got hacked recently so I'm a sad guy. No really, they changed my username to "asadguy". I can't change it back for 30 days.

    From what I've gathered, the free download of Minecraft on the Oculus store is a 2 hour trial version, right? That should do for the first go. Anyway, key sellers are offering the pc version for less than €2.

    At worst, if the demo version doesn't work we'll take the sad guy back to the Rec Room (and/or possibly Dead & Buried). Perhaps it'll cheer him up.

    Today it's Arma's turn, but for next time when we've got a VR coop session (if Minecraft turns out to be a flop in VR):
