While I absolutely don’t have the time to do this, I decided I’m going to do it anyway, because I miss it. I’ve put together a monthly gaming night with my brother (Josh) and brother-in-law (Steve). To make things simple for anyone who wants to participate, we’ll be playing Nexuiz, a first-person shooter that is open-source. That means it is free, runs on Windows, Linux, and OSX, and will run on pretty much anyone’s computer. I’ll host the game on one of our computers (probably Debi’s desktop) then play on my other computer. Given that we just received an upgrade to our bandwidth (20mb download/5mb upload), I should have sufficient bandwidth to manage the server.
If you’re interested, the first game is scheduled for May 10th at 9pm Eastern. The server will be called “Darwin’s House.” Not sure what we’ll play – free for all, capture the flag, team deathmatch, etc. – but it should be fun.
I also created a group on Facebook so I can keep everyone informed about the games. If you want an invite to the group on Facebook, let me know.
