j2 Nostalgia Nights

Post by Roughjericho » Wed Jun 06, 2018 3:39 pm

EDIT 1: Two strawpolls have been made to see what you guys want! Go vote: https://www.strawpoll.me/15854911 https://www.strawpoll.me/15854915

Hiya folks,

Over on the J2 Discord server, the idea was floated (by InfamousInvictis) to host Nostalgia Nights- where we go back and play some old multiplayer games just for the hell of it!

So this is pretty much testing the waters to see who's interested. Cast votes above for nights we can play on, post what game(s) from the list you'd like to play (suggesting others if the need arises) and let's see if we can get this going!

The current list of potential games is here:
VIEW CONTENT:
Quake 3
Unreal Tournament
Unreal Tournament 2004
Age of Empires 2
Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries
Supreme Commander (Forged Alliance preferable)
Sven Co-op
TES3: Morrowind via TES3MP
Civilization 3, 4 or 5
Neotokyo
Enemy Territory
Natural Selection 2
Counter-Strike: Source
Rune
RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 via OpenRCT2
Dune 2000/Command & Conquer/Red Alert via OpenRA
Trouble in Terrorist Town
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (w/Alien Crossfire)
Master Of Orion 2 (a mite far-fetched, probably, but hey!)
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Star Wars: Empire at War
Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (probably Jedi Academy too)
Killing Floor 1
Diablo 2
Alien Swarm (Reactive Drop is a must)
Left 4 Dead 2
Serious Sam
Team Fortress Classic
Doom 1/2 via Zandronum
Starcraft 1 + Brood War (it's freeee!)
Burnout Paradise
Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (2005)
What I'm currently thinking is a list consisting of both games you guys want to play and the odd relic picked from the list, with potential days to go back over favorites from nights' past once we've gotten to that point. If there's any questions, feel free to ask!

What about Chess

We're usually just on text chat, not in voice. #nostalgia-night over in discord is the official channel for this. Poke us and we'll usually respond- we don't bite, honest!

If you want to host a chess tournament on your own time, go right ahead. That's not what these nights are for, however.

I have created a couple strawpolls so I can see what people want to play! Please make sure to vote in both- I couldn't fit them all into one poll.

I wish that my computer was functional enough to play literally anything

I like that l4d2 is leading poll 2, sad that SC Broodwars isn't getting any love. I'll play anything I own/is free.

Alright- seems most things are in order so around Monday or so I'll be editing the post to announce the first round of games properly! If you want a peek at the schedule, check the Discord's #nostalgia-night channel!

You may get to play Broodwars with us sooner than you might think- I'm trying to sprinkle free/unloved games in with the popular ones so the next round of games may well have it!
