Community play nights return

Playing with erwin

I know, I know, we haven’t had a community play night in a while. But I haven’t forgotten about you lot – it’s just that people keep getting upset when the whole lazygamer crew doesn’t join in the gaming fun. So, we’re changing things up, and hopefully getting the community to play more together.

First things first, community play nights. We have them in our glorious calendar, but I think there’s some confusion about what this means. We would love to play games with you sometimes, but not all people are free all the times. Friday nights were suggested by the community, but we can move them if Sunday afternoons or Tuesday nights are better for you lot. That said, the focus of a community play night is the community. Yes, we will try to join in when and where possible, and you are welcome to add us on Steam and whatnot (all our details are here). However, the crux is for you all to play together, share glorious moments like when Erwin licked me to death (don’t worry, I got him back) or when someone goes full n00b at Dota. So, join in the fun on Friday! But first, we need to select a game. As such, here are a bunch of games with 2 for together in their titles:

Next up, we have the community drink idea. I don’t know when or where you people are keen to do it. I know it’s winter, which is a perfect excuse to hibernate and play games. So, if you want we can delay our next community shindig until the weather warms up and you’ve all finished playing Watch Dogs and Wolfenstein. Alternatively, we could pick a nice winter-friendly location for people to eat, drink and be merry. Of course, this could only take place after we return from E3. So, speak up people and tell us what you want – more in-person get togethers or are you all happy to wait until rAge for our next shindig?

    I still think the community of LG could really thrive with an open forum of sorts. A place where regulars can talk about anything under the sun. I mean we all interact on the site and comments but it would be cool to have a community division of the site as ,if we have to be honest…most of the time we go way off topic making fun of Rince’s face or the 5 year old rubber in Darryn’s wallet. I for one love speaking to you guys so wouldn’t mind extending that time, though I don’t know how many people wants to hear me rant about how Hatsune Miku is the best ever….Well just my 2cents. Still lets play is awesome..

      But I like the comments thing because my attention span lasts for a slightly shorter time than the average time between articles.
      By the time I’ve lost interest there’s something new to talk about.

      It’s still a good idea though.

    Please for the love of all that is gaming, remove dota 2. You’ll end up breaking the community with all the nut case elitists raging in game.

      Pretty sure Planet Side 2 is available on PS4, although I’m not sure if it’s cross-platform.

    I vote Planet Side 2 for the following reasons:
    1. Large number of players can team up to complete missions together.
    2. Is available on PS4 or soon will be.
    3. Has built in voice chat to facilitate communication.
    4. It’s freaking awesome even though I can’t play it for long.

    The problem with L4D2 (while being excellent game and all) is that it can only accommodate 8 people, and even though I managed to find a dedicated server to jam on, or if someone with powerful line can host, we are still stuck with 8.

    Planetside 2 can handle about 6000 people per server and of those can handle 2000 per continent.

    We can form a Lagz outfit and we can ALL play together to maximise the carnage and fun!!!!!!

      agreed. Same goes for any other game that has small team limits.

      Perhaps we should all buy CoD and play that πŸ˜›

    I know its a fairly large install (that’s what she said), and the learning curve is quite steep, but you have an Admiral in the War business to teach and guide you! Plus Hammersteyn is also a veteran!

        That is why we have the reddit rescue force. Broke my leg near Otmel and 20 minutes after I posted a help request 8 guys were scouring the woods for me to help me out. Also I meant DayZ Mod. SA is still a bit boring at this point in time. Then again the next patch has hunting and fishing yay.
