Game Night – Week of August 5th, 2013 (and Voting, kinda)

This is going to be a very brief write-up of what I have planned for the week since I’m out of town and am running all over the place. I’m sorry that I was unable to create a better write-up before I left, but I figured that if anything came up during the Wednesday meeting while I was gone, I wouldn’t know about it until after, so I might as well wait until it was all done.

However, since the only thing I heard from the meeting Wednesday was that it was good, I don’t really have much to talk about for the past week in terms of new changes or clarifications, which is good! So I’m just going to jump right in to what we’re going to play this week instead.

This Monday, August 5th, we will be playing Team Fortress 2. Again, I’m going with a safe choice because I may not be able to attend this meeting, or if I do, I won’t really be at 100% just because of the fatigue from driving. If someone from the Euro-centirc time group would be willing to lead that group (Battleborn?), it'd be awesome, since I know if I come to that one I'll be a total zombie.

Wednesday, August 7th is the Game Night after this, but I’m going to be preparing for another trip, so I won’t really be able to stay, either. We can either go with a safe choice again or do more voting and just kind of hope it all works out. It’s technically a PC week, so we are probably going to do double PC that week. I’ll have an idea of what we can be doing for the rest of the week next Monday, so expect another announcement then. Until then, post your ideas for PC games below (I think someone had an open beta for something that I don't know if it's in open beta anymore - mind reposting that?) and if you see one you want to play just reply to the suggestion of it, and you can vote as many times as you want. If there's a decent amount of votes for a cheap/free game, I'll consider it a safe choice and go with that one.

I should clarify that when I say I want to pick something “safe”, I mean something that’s semi-easy to organize and is either inexpensive or free. However, I’m still totally open to all suggestions for what we can do for next Wednesday, so let me know what you would be interested in seeing. Just keep in mind that there is a chance that I may opt-out of voting and go for the easy route with something I know we can play together. At the very least, if I don't use the voting suggestions, I'll make it carry over for the week after. Just one more week, everyone, I promise.

Basically, next Monday will be TF2 and next Wednesday is still up in the air. Remember that Game Night occurs at 4pm EDT (8pm GMT) and at 9pm EDT (1am GMT) on the nights when they take place. Remember to check where you are in relation to GMT, especially if you believe that you are utilizing GMT currently, since you may be on GMT +1.

That's it for today, you all. I'm going to get back to my little trip! Take care, everyone, and I hope to see all of my fellow TAY'ers soon.
