@adam1808: You can post to our steam group and see if you can find any like-minded duders

#52 Posted by BitterAlmond (401 posts) -

I'd love to volunteer to be admin/co-ordinator/whatever for the GiantBomb TF2 team.

We are doing Quake Live today (the free, browser based version) at the hub (link to event). Come join us for some old-school fragging and bunny hopping!

#54 Posted by DudeSupreme (214 posts) -

Dang, missed the Quake action. Did enough people play to do it another time?

#55 Posted by mosdl (3243 posts) -

Just Cause 2 MP is in open beta all weekend. Last time we met at this location and perhaps we should take over that island for good!

Hey guys I just joined the steam group, please add me, I can't wait to play some games with all of you

Next JC2MP beta test reminded me that I didn't upload these screenshots. Forgive Hub-Buddies! D:

Edit: Can't seem to embed the pictures, so would you kindly (so witty) just go to the link?

Alright then Duders, this Saturday we’re going to be having some co-op fun on the Killing Floor. Grab your lever-action rifles, sharpen that katana and brush up on your cockney-english because we’ll be trying to brave the horde from around 4pm Eastern (9pm GMT, 1pm Pacific.)

Drop a post if you’re game and if any of you guys know any good missions, mods or levels let me know. I would be really grateful if anyone knew how to host a server with more than a 6 player limit.

Thanks guys, hope to see you there.

Hai there guys! who do I need to bother to get an invite ?

#60 Posted by TobbRobb (4817 posts) -

@Etnos: Basically all you need to know is in the opening post.

#61 Posted by sparkyal (22 posts) -

Ok I never knew before that you could play actual gaming brands on the pc.

#62 Edited by Akrid (1356 posts) -

the group is open, so just come right in! We discovered a bug where if you view the group through a web page while not signed in, it'll say it's a closed group. That is untrue. Maybe that's what you're experiencing?

@sparkyal: Crazy, right?

...um... just to make sure, was that for just anyone to grab? Because I did and then I felt like I stole something...

#66 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

@believer258: Yep, for anyone who saw it. Hopefully you'll get some play out of it, haha.

Join us on the IRC or mumble sometime man, we'd love to have you!

I'm thinking we should do a Chivalry night. Any date suggestions?

#70 Posted by Swoxx (3006 posts) -

The Chivalry tournament turned out pretty excellent if you ask me, even though I was taken out in the first bracket. At least I lost to the guy who won the whole thing. Our very own @rolyatkcinmai

#71 Posted by Grand (53 posts) -

I am happy.

Hey guys, did you know the Giant Bomb PC Gaming Hub Steam Community has well over 1000 members as of now? How special I feel to be a part of said community cannot be understated! Not only have they accepted little ol me with open arms and knowledge ready to spit, I now know just how little I know compared to my fellow people-not-from-America! This is like a mix of happy mistakes when I get on and hear 6 different accents at the same time praising me for what a great job I did in Dota 2, one of the friendliest gaming communities out there!
If you want to be cool, get on that Giant Bomb Mumble and partake in one of our crazy trivia nights, the only time there is complete and total silence for a given time while a person reads a question! Join us for some awesome Cards Against Humanity nights, where we find out Brad isn't the only one with the dirty mind! Hang out as we try to figure out how exactly Dwarf Fortress works, or just where to find the perfect mining area in Eve Online, or discuss the latest happenings in that craaazzzzzy world of Wrastling!
The decision is all yours!

I may actually try to do stuff with this group now that I've taken the plunge and grabbed Arma III. That game .... man, that game is complicated.

We should have Arma 3 stuff going on every weekend (and usually every day the Europeans play it in the evenings with a few of us Americans who are around).

#75 Edited by Subjugation (4733 posts) -

@mosdl: Does the PCGH bother with Steam notifications for those events or is it just a set time that people know about? Also, would you guys lose it over someone who is still learning the ropes?

#76 Edited by Mister_V (1424 posts) -

@subjugation: There are notifications on the steam account, However i managed to get a game of ARMA3 yesterday by hanging out on the IRC channel/mumble. some of that stuff just happens when there is enough people around.

#77 Posted by SamStrife (1286 posts) -

@mosdl: Also, would you guys lose it over someone who is still learning the ropes?

Of course we wouldn't. More than anything, we're out to have fun. None of us have any problems what-so-ever with helping a new guy learn the ropes. Please jump in on Mumble or the IRC and have a chat/game with us.

I don't usually post our videos here, but I thought maybe I would start doing so. There are other gaming hub videos on both my profile and the gaming hub profile. Here's one that encompasses a fair amount of the last three weeks.

Good Idea.

This Saturday, August 31 at 4 PM EST, it'll be time to celebrate this week's ARMA 3 development build update with a little co-op gaming event! Make sure to prepare your PC by downloading and installing the development build by doing the following:

1. Right-click "Arma 3 Beta" in your Steam Library and select "Properties.

2. Click the "Betas" tab. Under the "Select the beta..." dropdown, select "development - Development Build".

3. Ignore the "Enter beta access code..." field and click the "Close" button. The development build of the game should start downloading after a few moments.

And that's not all - it's highly recommended that you find yourself a mic and join a dozen of us in voice chat on our Mumble server at mumble.giantbombing.com port 64738. The Mumble software is freeware and available for download at http://download.cnet.com/Mumble/3000-2150_4-10779248.html . People are actually on that server practically 24/7 in case you just want to hang out, too.

Note: I'll post an update as soon as server hosting details are available, so stay tuned for that.

I am all the way sad now, I'm out at football tomorrow :( Hopefully I'll be back by 9pm BST, I'll make sure to update my game in case.

So What do We Play?

Well darn near every game under the sun! Things like Arma2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Battlefield 3, Starcraft II, Diablo III, , Company of Heroes, Shogun 2, Men of War, Red Orchestra 2, Minecraft, IL-2 Sturmovik, DayZ, Just Cause 2, All the MOBAs . . . Sometimes we even go for games of the non-video variety, with card games like Dominion or Cards Against Humanity! I’m sure you get the idea. We like the games.

how about Worms games series? Like my favorite Worms Armageddon? Don't you guys play here such an addictive game? Well, I'm just curios to know that:)

Thanks.

#85 Posted by Akrid (1356 posts) -

Damn! I haven't checked this thread in like 3 months! Sorry about that.

We're still very active on our mumble server, playing a variety of things, but we cut back on our events during the dry periods. Rest assured we still have plenty of folks ready and willing to put together game nights of whatever flavour that Giant Bomb's craving.

BF4 for instance! We're funding a server, but we need a few more donations to make it solid. If you like the idea of playing BF4 with a server full of nice, friendly people, then you may want to consider donating.

We'll be running plenty of events for the game, just as we did with BF3, so there'll be plenty of opportunities to jump in with fellow duders and have a good time.

#86 Posted by Mageknight (124 posts) -

I haven't been scheduling events because I have no idea what you guys are into at any given moment, to be honest. I have my weird interests, but whenever I talk about making events about that stuff I get a lukewarm response at best. However, I check my PMs and this thread constantly, so if you have suggestions about events you'd like to run you can send them my way and I'll see what I can do!

#87 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

League of Legends! :D

#88 Posted by xlab3000 (37 posts) -
