j2 Nostalgia Nights is a weekly game night hosted every Friday night at 9PM Eastern / 8PM Central / 6PM Pacific, with an extra night on Sunday!

Nostalgic, great, or just plain old multiplayer games are on the docket every Friday/Sunday, and the game changes every week!

The Schedule (up to the end of the year, subject to change):
10/26 & 10/27 - The Hidden: Source (Free Day!)
11/2 & 11/3 - Tribes: Ascend (Free Day!)
11/9 & 11/10 - OpenRA (exact game to be determined) (Free Day!)
11/16 & 11/17 - Unreal Tournament
11/23 & 11/24 - Team Fortress Classic
11/30 & 12/1 - StarCraft Brood War (Free Day!)
12/7 & 12/8 - GoldenEye Source (Free Day!)
12/14 & 12/15 - Freespace 2 (via FreeSpace 2 SCP & Knossos Launcher (not free, however))
12/21 & 12/22 - RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 via OpenRCT2
12/28 & 12/29 - The Ship (original)


Free Days have games that are free-to-play, so anyone who wants to try 'em can play! (Games not using Steam will require additional setup- no way around that, unfortunately)

Stay tuned to the j2 discord's #nostalgia-night channel for up-to-date info and more!

(original idea credit goes to InfamousInvictis. I just stole it and ran with it)

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!

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 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!

Well, I'm still rocking the same macbook pro from 2011, now with added features of a cracked screen, broken touchpad, literally zero battery life, and more! Honestly it's a miracle that I can even turn the damn thing on. I get by day to day with my work laptop, but gaming is pretty much out of the question for the foreseeable future. :toot:
