I did like the instant 5% difference in my income that came with my income happening in Texas instead of Illinois.

So, we're into the second page of this thread, and the only two games mentioned so far are "pong" and Half-Life 3....

Anyone want to talk about something we will really be playing?

I saw rocket league mentioned on the FB post, for example. I'd been playing a lot of Titanfall 2, personally, although now it's been a couple weeks since I've played anything at all. But before that I was working on X-com 2 and Deus Ex:MD and Fallout 4, so I could use some help in the multiplayer department.

Overwatch is probably a good option as that's gotten particularly popular and you can actually do custom servers and specifically invite friends only now too

Edit - MrJymm could you compile a list of suggested games in OP?

Nuclear Dawn! Wow. I assumed that was long dead. I think I still have an extra copy of that in my steam inventory. I really enjoyed it the few times it got played.

And I forgot about minecraft, my son has a server on a raspberry pi that might get brought to the event. Depends on whether I can trust you savages to keep the place kid-friendly.

+1 for Nuclear Dawn (has a place in my heart next to Demigod and Section 8 still too...) and Suicide Survival mod

Having better internet is really opening up the window of games that we can look into playing now... I would say that Rocket League but would be fun... could see TitanFall 2 if enough people would be interested. I'm sure we could see some Diablo III as well... I'm trying to think of the multiplayer games I played recently:

- Rust
- Gang beasts
- Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Wildlands
- TF2
- Overwatch
- Diablo III
- TitanFall 2
- Rocket League

If I can think of any others to append to the list or post at a later time...
PSU: Seasonic x850w PSU Modular
CPU: Phenom II 1100T BE
Memory: 32 GB G. Skills Ripjaw X
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
GPU: Sapphire 7970 3GB CrossFire
Hard Drives: 512 GB SSD (OS Drive) + 4 TB (Steam Games, etc) + 2 TB (Backups, etc)
Soundcard: Asus Xonar DG
OS: Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I know a few of us have Dead by daylight. 4 v 1 multiplayer that I feel would be fun in a LAN environment. I would prefer the new Friday the 13th game but unfortunately it's not released yet and it allows 7 vs 1.

Well, this could not be better timing -

From the Titanfall 2 blog:
"With the launch of Colony Reborn we will also be kicking off another Free Trial weekend that will start on 3/30 and run through 4/3."

Everyone must download and update PRIOR to the event though. While the Internet is better, it's not gigabit.

Definitely preferable, people will probably want to get some practice in ahead of time anyway. But if necessary we can do like we've done with steam and share the installed files, it's not a huge deal. I had to do that with the 50GB installation folder for the first Titanfall to save my little brother a weeks worth of downloading on his crappy rural DSL.

Except for the one guy who's downloading it quietly in the corner hoping no one will notice and our pings hit 400.
