RPS has occasionally managed to inspire some fine bouts of multiplayer gaming. Blood Bowl (or perhaps Solium Infernum) has become our national sport. The TF2 server has become the home of many fine hats, the Battlefield server has eaten a couple of hundred hours of my life, and the Arma 2 events have been exercises in ramshackle military awesomeness. But we want more. It’s time to get organised. We’re going to do this by stages. The first stage will consist in event days where we will select a game – one that is cheap, or free – and ask everyone who reads RPS to join their comrades in readership to come and play. The later stages… well, that would be telling.
So, without further ado, the first event is going to feature DogFighter. The game is currently astonishingly cheap on Steam (85% off) and we’re going to be playing it this coming Friday night and Saturday afternoon. That’s you, and me, and probably other people we don’t know particularly well. Saturday evening, of course, we will be dressing as lobsters and eating magic apples, but we ask you to join us before you head off to whatever it is you are doing for Halloween, and shoot me to bits in the skies of DogFighter. More details – servers, times, and such organisational stuff – will appear here as we proceed. Tally ho, and all that. I’m looking forward to this.
