Let's shoot for next Sunday again, unless anyone has any objections? Also, who'd like to do a different game besides JKA? Should we stick with it for now or pick another?

I'll vote for JKA if we only have until Sunday to choose.

If everyone else also votes that way, we can spend the rest of the thread talking about what game to choose after that one! ,)

Sure, but if you want to do a different game I would need some time to get it working so I would need to know in advance which game it is, my PC is pretty underpowered & old so I can mostly play older games.

Vendor was playing Titan Quest ($5 on humble bundle right now), and I thought it could be a cool one to play as a group. Also, the chat system in JKA was frustrating to deal with. I voted something else, but JKA is fine too.

I own both the Gold & the Anniversary editions, but I do have a little bit of trouble making it work right, so if you're on for that I just have to do a bit of troubleshooting before being prepared.

It would be good if we start discussing some other game we may want to play in the future because my PC is old-ish and a bit fussy so I normally have to do some troubleshooting before being able to run shit right and that way I can prepare in advance.

If we're gonna play an ARPG, I might suggest Grim Dawn instead. Having said that, what was wrong with the chat system?

I was in the middle of typing and your messages kept disappearing off screen before I could read them. I'd then open up the console to read what you said (after I missed a ton) and then I couldn't type back. Then I'd hit T instead of Y and start to type a message you wouldn't be able to read. It's typical for a game chat system to behave that way, but it wasn't great for conversation. And I was enjoying our conversation.

You can actually chat right in the console. Just use the /say command and then the message you'd like to type. You can also just type your message and enter it in the console and it will assume you wanted to use the say command but that's definitely more unreliable as, naturally, it might pick up the first word in your message as a command. I generally don't do the /say stuff when using the console to chat if I'm just doing short replies.

I don't have the latest Grim Dawn version nor the expansion(s). I do have the latest TQ:AE - Ragnarök.
Kaleion might not be able to run Grim Dawn either. Other Hack'n'Slash games if you don't like TQ is Fate 1-4, Din's Curse or Victor Vran.
My personal favorite, Harbinger, might not play so well on Win 8 or 10, and it hasn't been updated by GoG.

Oooh..ooooh.. How about Phantasy Star Online?
Or a risky private Wow?

For the future, I would also like to add that there is a difference between ARPG, Hack'n'Slash and Spectacle Fighter. Would ease communication to separate them.

I think if we're going to pick a different game, we should decide if we want something we can just kinda goof about in or if we want something a little more focused. I think gmod would be kinda fun, not sure if anyone else has it though

How about runescape? It even has a clan feature

I've got titan quest, just not ragnrok too

Why not both a fun game AND a more serious one? ^^
I don't have gmod..is that a mod for..half-life...2? ..Garry's mod? ..Isn't that just a physics..thing?

I read up on RuneScape (3)..No thanks. Seems a lot has happened since I last played it.
I'm also not a fan of their microtransactions, from what I understand.

I could go with an online game, if it is good enough.
Both of my mentioned games (PSO (1) & Wow) would be private servers though.

It's a stand alone physics/building (at least that's what I think it is) game in the hl2 engine

What about classic runescape? Has its own separate launcher

Yeah..Garry's Mod never looked fun to me. Sry.

You mean Old School Runescape? Classic was shut down.
Having found the difference and read about it, it still doesn't seem a good choice. Only old members are allowed full or major access?

Didn't realise it got shutdown, oh well nevermind.

I don't have any thing against wow, I just don't keep my sub going since I don't use it often enough. Never played phantasy star, but I'll look into it now

I don't like WoW at all really. Vanilla WoW... Maybe. But I'm not paying Activision shit so it'll have to be private servers.

Runescape's geh. Classic and new.

Phantasy Star Online looks like WoW but with extra steps.

GMod is actually really cool. The one thing that's annoying about it is that it doesn't have a focus (like a frag limit or objectives) in any way like UT does, so if you want any kind of objective at all, you're much better off playing UT or even JKA. If you don't care about that though, there's VERY few games as customizable and fun for groups as GMod.

I think I need to clarify. PSO and Wow would not be official online. Anyone could set up a server.
Would need Server version for Wow though. Or find one already online.
PSO is much easier. Server/Client is same program. Almost. Only need a tiny other program. That I have.

Also, I'm just throwing them out there.. I'm not super into them..It's just that I have them already..
I have lots of games, though not many multiplayer focused ones..and not many modern ones.

I've been playing Supreme Commander again. Not really a good social hangout game, but I've been having a lot of fun playing it. I figured I'd throw it out there.

How many players can it fit though? It would be a great game to play, but yeah.

BTW, looks like JKA's back on the menu, boys.

I know the default maps go up to 8. I had a custom map at 16.

That is one big problem with Strategy games though. You can't just jump in and play. Everyone's gotta do the tutorial, and ESPECIALLY for a game as mechanically deep as SC.
