Hi there PC duders and soontobe or wantingtobe PC duders!
So. There is a restructuring going on with the Giant Bomb Mumble server(s) due to a mix of high demand and general use. For those who are part of the Giant Bomb PC Gaming Hub Steam Community, you’ll know that there have been weekly scheduled events for everyone to hop on and play some of their favorite games – however, there has been a call for focus on a more permanent basis beyond Battlefield 3 for day-to-day chat channels.
I'm SUPER STOKED to announce that for this reason, we (many of the former admins and regulars) are migrating to a new Mumble server hosted on Amazon’s service whilst leaving the current one dedicated to spotlighting those great Bombing Runs and BF3. This new one is located in US East to reduce lag for those blokes across the pond.
Hell, just go ahead and surf around, share some links in the chat, and just just hang out with some cool fellow duders. This new server is for all those gems you've picked up over the years, along with the big guns like Cards Against Humanity, DayZ, Minecraft, Shogun 2, League of Legends, Counter Strike Source, Diablo 3 and on and on. There are some people on the Giant Bomb website who are almost as cool as yourself. Maybe they can finally beat that high score of yours in Audiosurf?
All you need to join and hang with some really cool people is Mumble. That can be downloaded here: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/
Once it is downloaded, install the program and run the audio wizard. This will setup all that is needed to speak with us. Even if you don't speak, you can listen and type as many do.
To connect to the server select "Server" and connect, then enter 220.127.116.11 in the address window, then 64738 in the port window. Choose a name, however you want to be known, press enter and you’re done! Yay!
As a disclaimer, I want to mention this mumble is not affiliated with the PC gaming hub, it’s more or less a place where you play games and shoot the shit. Play what you want, how you want, when you want, with some vocal input from some pretty nifty Giant Bomb users. Boom.
