Thanks to henke and Malf for a fun session of crime and stunt racing - even if the game screwed with me at the beginning by leaving me stuck in a solo session and making it incredibly hard to join them in a session, feeling like the most boring season of Fringe.
As I've mentioned, I'm not around the next two Saturdays, but the Steam and Rockstar groups are free to use for members. I'll be back on Saturday, 1 October. Till then: don't get run over!
I'm back, and I've got a hankering for milsim manshootery. Anyone up for it? (And there may even be some helicopter racing for when you're tired of dying at the hands of AI that are preternaturally good shots.)
Date: Saturday, 1 October
Time: 4-6pm UK time
Game: Arma 2/Operation Arrowhead
Things to note:
Bring a headset! We are using Teamspeak 3 to communicate in the game.
While we're not using any compulsory mods, client-side quality-of-life mods like sthud are allowed.
Anyone's welcome to join, absolute beginners as well as old hands. Since Arma is a bit fickle, perhaps check out the instructions on the Steam group first or send me a PM.
I'll be online a bit before 4pm to set up the server and check who's on Steam. Hoping to see you there!
Thanks to Malf and Al_B for a fun session of Arma, death and fatal helicopter accidents. That heli mission of mine isn't quite working as it should yet, but I've made a few changes to the scripts, so it's ready to not work in entirely different ways next time. Mwahahaha!
I've scheduled a GTA session for next week; hope to see many of you there and die alongside you all over again!
How's that for an international session: we had people from Finland, Holland, the UK, Switzerland and Australia getting shot up in Takistan. Thanks to everyone who joined in, even if none of the missions were victorious. Well, one of them would've been, but the game didn't correctly register the base being blown up (together with henke and PigLick). In my books, we won.
Next week'll be GTA Online again, and then we'll probably have another Arma session in two weeks' time. Till then!
Thanks to henke & Malf for a fun session. For a change we also ended up playing some of the new(ish) adversarial modes, and with four people (we had a silent random person join us) they're pretty cool and make for a nice change. Also, even after 1 1/2 years I still find Los Santos breathtakingly beautiful at times. Very much looking forward to whatever world Rockstar'll bring us next.
Up next week: Arma 2. Already got some ideas for missions we could play...
Welp, for what is worth, ol'ducky-poo is back on Steam with a new sexy rig, ready for some co-op action! Though I live on the other side of the pond in Mapletown (i.e. Canada). But Hell, if I was able to play and finish a game in co-op with bob_doe_nz and Sulphur (3 different time-zones), I think we can manage. Woooooo!
