78: day-D

Zombies are AWAL, I only really liked Stubbs anyway. So instead it is day-D.

D is for
Don't Starve
Dino Beatdown: Orion's Hoard
Divine Cybermancy
Dino D-Day
Depth

I don't think Don't Starve will last a long time, alternatively its a really long game. Punching T-Rex can be fun for a few 20min rounds and is now just $0.99. The divine cybermancy got a workout when Levi was present and I've a competent healer now as well as furiously fast frog. More dinosaurs, couldn't leave this one out, possibly only played once previously when Sam was in town. Finally Depth the dodge counterstrike mod with sharks that I thought was going to play like Hydrophobia Prophesy but disappointingly doesn't.

Also note that I'll be a church a little later than normal on account of our AGM and being responsible and stuff. Text/ring for more details as I may leave my place unlocked i.e. for baby sitting during the AGM. Lego's in the sunroom.

WHEN: Sunday 22nd after service

WHERE: Ben is happy to host

WHAT: Oh, I mentioned this already.

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

77: a Lenten Journey

 On account of a scheduled fortnightly Vampire the Requiem, scheduled for Sunday evenings, sojourns for Lent will also take place Sunday evening on alternating weeks. Out of the ordinarily Levi will also be physically here this weekend. By then Levi and I should both have a DX11 compatible graphics cards working again, but I don’t think there are that many intensive games. I can’t recall the last time I felt the need to turn off shadows or shading. Possibly in Dark Souls, but that’s mainly because it was a buggy PC port.


I’ve had a decent bash at Don’t Starve now, it’s similar to Terraria in that you quickly have to build resources to make your lifestyle sustainable and the most fun thing is discovering how the game works and how to use all these things. So another session on it will progress faster but be less fun.


Recently played a couple of Frozen Throne mods, wow League of Legends has come a long way since grass roots. Almost every match feels like an ARAM but the game modes change as well. Quite happy to go back to LoL where I have a vague notion of what items I want to get and which shop to find them in.


E.Y.E wouldn’t mind another campaign session in this. Partially because Levi is in town but I like the game still. It has plot, and is a 32 player co-op FPS RPG dungeon crawl hack and slash. But I’m only game if we can put a few hours into it as I’ve done the first missions several times now. I suppose we could run the scenarios a few times?


Nicole really enjoyed Artemis when we played over Christmas. I’m keen for another session as well and can setup the TV as our main screen. I still have a couple of gift able copies as well as the client files if anybody is keen on hosting their own game.


Galacon is a new game that I found out about this week, free to play on steam in which you use circles to make triangles that swarm circles so that you can make more triangles. When such a simple concept is fun I can understand why graphics card development cycles have slowed.


Orion:Hoard, is a dinosaur fighting game that me and Josh have been playing on and off for a month, you get to punch dinosaurs until they go invisible.


WHEN: Feb 1, 5pm till Late

WHERE: Wind Room

WHAT: Don't Starve, LoL, E.Y.E, Artemis, Galacon & Orion.

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here

76: water at the gates

Australia day again and again the weekend snuck up on me. My plan is to visit the beach, BBQ some snags and spend all day playing enemy at the gates and don't starve alone. Though I may have a little foray into town to help with the ROTARACT fundraising BBQ for the council at the botanical gardens. Also my spare graphics card does not run DX11, so I may be a little limited for choice.

Is it three years ago now that it was raining and Sam was intending to drive down from Rocky but couldn't get here because the roads started to flood?

WHEN: 26th January

WHERE: Tony's beach resort

WHAT: LoL, Enemy at the gates, Don't Starve together Beta.

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink below, if you want.

WHO: Who's expected to be coming? Who is coming late? Who is leaving early? Who doesn't have a computer?

73: Late Lunch

Deo will have departed, so I may sort out something pre the 30th. Since we are not going to Supernova we will have saved a bit of cash and instead of ending November sporting a moustache I'll still be Bearded Ben. Rather than sequels I've scheduled games that we are familiar with but have not put much effort into lately.

Josh may want to shift the location to his house, so watch this space. Also Ben will be out of town from the 15th until the 30th of December and therefore will be unavailable to participate in any events. If you still want me to organise something in December then Tony or Josh will need to tell me the date and I'll come up with a theme. Otherwise you could organise yourselves?

Sometime this week I'll post my terraria server IP, the goal will be to enter the temple. I'll use a world where hardmode has been unlocked but not much else is happening.

WHEN: 30th November, Sunday lunch till late.

WHERE: Ben's Wind Room

WHAT: LoL, Terraria, Artemis

WHAT TO BRING:
Kyle brings soft drinks
Josh brings pizza maker with ingredients
Tony brings hard drinks
Ben brings internet and electricity
Any objections?

72: 28-31-28



Next Thursday I plan to start to plan to go to Supernova. If it’s on my lonesome then I’ll stay home but if anybody wants to carpool then I’m happy to drive down. Would you want to go for the full three days? Taking a little time off work or just the bare minimum? The crush should be finished by then but it is not always so I may not get another chance to go for a while.
If I do go then I’ll probably try to cosplay Van of the Dawn, mostly I’d need a big hat and a black coat with tails. I'd also do Movember, otherwise I'm more inclined to be bearded and kitesurfing.

But for today the plan is to have two Artemis ships running at the same time, or try a level 4 space station defence. Granted though not many of you like this game, So the backup will be … I don’t know, seems to me that every game over the last 6 months has been disliked by somebody. So, if nobody has a couple of xbox/PS3 controllers with which to trial my Naruto Shippuuden Ultimate Storm 3 Full Burst fighting game with then I suppose we go back to power ranger Terraria (or at least Hard Mode+).

 
Land voyage: Supernova #2 on the weekend of the 28th of November
If I can't get this off the ground then it will be a weekend of sequels

Josh, Busy
Marc, on call
Tony, Alice, Cam, Eddie, Sasha, Kyle Charli, Eddie, Sam?


WHEN: 4PM on 28/10/14

WHERE: Wind room

WHAT: Artemis, Naruto, Terraria

WHAT TO BRING: Arrange food and drink here
