Looking for group

Post by Brian » Wed Jan 11, 2017 6:07 pm

So I'm tired of waiting for all of my RL friends (both of them) to have free time for gameplay.

It's a long story but basically my gaming friends have too much responsibility and too little time for gaming. As for myself, I have ample free time but I hate playing with anonymous PUGs.

For example, even though GTAV has been out for years, I still have only completed one 4 man heist.

I'm hoping there are enough people on here that we can form a group of 4-6 (more?) people that can commit to (at the very least) a single day/night a month (weekends best) for two or more hours a session.

I would like this to be a regular thing which is why I emphasized being able to commit.

I'm mostly concerned with PC games (GTAV, Rainbow 6: Siege, Payday 2, etc) but I also have an XBox One S so can also accommodate XB games (GTAV, Gears 4, Worms, etc)

Obviously I lean heavily towards shooters but am up for other games as well.

So, anybody interested?

Guess I should have indicated that I'm not the least bit interested in MMOS but honestly, I'm just happy that somebody finally responded. :)

I mean, I always suspected I was an unlikable asshole but after 25+ views and no responses I was thinking I had confirmation. At least now I can still say it's up in the air.

For now.... :ninja:

If you wanted to set up a monthly schedule where people could a) plan and b) drop in and out based on game and availability, I think it would be more likely to get off the ground.

We'll that's pretty much what I'm asking for.
I don't think two hours a month is too much to ask.
I figure setting a specific day/time makes it easier to plan/commit.

On a personal note, I'd love to get some monthly gaming with the peeps in. Heck, even some Tabletop Simulator games. I can tell you that, at present, Sundays and Wednesdays would not be doable for me.

We didn't want to say anything, but since you brought it up... :p

For me personally:
A) not into shooters, none of the games you listed
B) don't own an Xbox (consoles generally are not my thing)
C) I can't commit to squat. I try to keep the last Saturday of every month open for local group boardgaming day, but I think I made it maybe 6 of the last 12 months. Suspect you'd like something a little more reliable than that.

I'd love to do this as well, as I generally have free time if I schedule it, but I'd be held back by not having current games very often - or ever (of those you listed, I have zero.)

i dont normally play shooters; though i had been playing the hell out of battlefield 1 & battlefront (both ps4). Not so much now. However, that being said if there is a thread I'd definitely pay attention to it for grouping opportunities.

Oh, and though I played the snot out of both, I'd be willing to do some Borderlands or Diablo 3. I could probably jump into some Dead Island too.

I was gonna post just to let you know that I like the idea but the games you are interested in aren't really my cup o' tea these days.

I've found that if you pick one game, especially if it's a coop game, you can get a set group of people who are willing to meet on a schedule and run through a specific game multiplayer. I know I'm personally not particularly interested in a Wednesday night (for example) gaming session where the game is TBD that night or whatever.

As my son has found out, I want to play what I want to play, and I don't want to play anything else, no matter how good the something else might be.

I can definitely sign up for once/month as long as it's the weekends - preferably friday or saturday night. I'm on Eastern Standard Time.

I have BF1, Overwatch, Space Hulk: Deathwing, Pulsar: Lost Colony on PC.

Watch Dogs 2, TitanFall 2, The Division on PS4.

I have more games and other genres too, those are just what popped into mind as far as easy drop in/drop out group or coop play. In particular I'd really be up for a monthly grouping for Pulsar: Lost Colony. I think it would be awesome to get a long-term crew together to pilot a spaceship, explore planets, and die glorious deaths.

Anyone here use Discord? It's a free VOIP PC and mobile app that lets you do persistent web-based virtual channels, multiple channels and text, and so on. My real-life friends and I have been using it for VOIP when playing Overwatch and other PC games and so far it sounds great. If we have a persistent #OO channel then folks can just pop in whenever, see who's on and see whether or not they want to join a game.

I'd love a group. I've been wanting to dabble in GTA Online, but I'm on the PS3 and never really done the online thing with it, nevermind the fact that everyone seems to have moved on to the PS4. So, that said, it already leaves groups fragmented with a smaller pool of players. In general, I've just never been able to connect with anybody to get anything done.

On the PC side of things, aside from having started playing Chivalry recently, I don't really do much online gaming.

I'd love the option to get together and play but would hate the commitment (and breaking it all of the time)... And honestly board games would also appeal to me most. :oops: I'm not very twitchy, so I've never been much for adventure/shooter games and Starcraft was the last RTS I really got in to.

Yeah, I'm not much of an FPS guy and am kind of a flake due to childcare responsibilities, especially on the weekends. A couple of hours isn't too much to ask, but a couple of hours at a specific time with no flexibility *is* too much to ask.

It's also looking like games that I either don't own or have no interest in. I'm more of a tabletop simulator type. Alternately, stuff like Helldivers, Titan Quest, Path of Exile works. Also, GZDoom with Brutal Doom mod is amazing, and I imagine it'd be even better in coop.

For PC, Helldivers would be fun. Not sure what else I've got there.

PC time for the next month is pretty inconsistent however, as we're in the middle of a remodel and living at the MIL's place, but the gaming rig is still at home.

Edit - could always do some TF2 or L4D. I think the laptop can run those ;)

I'd be game for this. I'm West coast, so if it was a weekday it would have to be late enough I can get home from work. Weekends would be best. I am game for shooters, so most of what you listed would work for me. I'm not much into MOBAs, though. PC, though, not XBox for me. I have one, but using a controller for shooters is like steering a car with your knees and about as effective for me.

Vermintide is a great coop game and it's fairly cheap.
