Title: Ideas for Xbox Game nights?
Post by: detski on March 28, 2017, 12:51:21 pm
As it's a bit quiet in the Xbox Game Nights section, I thought it might be worth asking what games would you want a night on?

Something older and forgotten? I know Sharky mentioned to me about doing that last Horde map on Zombie Army Trilogy (currently on sale for £8:00) recently for example. I know I'd be up for that.

Something you'd like to play in co-op? A partner for Gears 4 campaign? A crew for Ghost Recon? A squad for Rainbow 6? Someone to play through Borderlands with?

An example that isn't a shooter?  :P

A game on 360, backwards compatible or not? I know some members have 360's still.

Please remember that all members can post up a game night, so don't hesitate to create one if there's something you want to play. Not sure how to do that?

check here (http://www.oldgamerz.co.uk/index.php?topic=20908.0)

Any thoughts or suggestions, post them below...

I would still like to play Warhammer - Vermintide. This was on offer recently, did anyone buy? On a similar note LFD2 on backwards compatability. However I did try this with a friend recently but he kept getting kicked. Rocket league could be a laugh, I haven't played this for ages. Star Wars Battlefront. Other then these I would be happy for more Overwatch and / or Battlefield nights. I need to get back into Titanfall as well!

As much as I hate to agree with the farmer, left for dead is a bloody good shout. Either that or rainbow six seize which is good.

If there was bingo available on the Xbox I would have gone for that with my own little twist, but sadly there is not.

Casey Bob.

I put up a thread the week Warhammer was on sale and after we spoke about it, but there seemed to be no interest. A shame as I think that game would make a great Oldg game night. I would be willing to grab that if you want to play, but would that leave us with two randoms?

LFD2 is a good call. We used to have a few game nights on that, I actually picked it up just for some Oldg evenings and despite getting my ass kicked it was good fun!

Rocket league and Battlefront could be arranged too. Cheers for the suggestions.

I'll put up Overwatch nights, I was surprised how quickly the 6th filled up. Expired puts up Battlefield 1 nights, but they get low numbers. Want to join his next session?

Steak Smithy

Overwatch was a weekly Thursday event for a while, and always a good laugh. As said above, after some weeks of low interest I was surprised how quick the event on the 6th filled up. Happy to post more nights up!

Stonesroses

LFD2 - see above. Rainbow 6 is also a good call, it's a great game.
Bingo, naked or otherwise will never ever be a game night. Ever. And your Kinect should be confiscated for the safety of the public. ;D

Cheers guys. Anyone have any more suggestions? Keep 'em coming...

I'm easy, my game library is low at the moment, but if people start playing something regularly, I'll pick the game up (not Destiny or Division.... the grind was too much on PS4 and I don't have nearly enough alcohol to keep my mind numbed to do it all again)

Well if anyone gets Vermintide let me know. I also bought Zombie Army Trilogy but story of my life barely touched. I would be happy to start from scratch on this. I will join Expired on Battlefield but not sure why there is such low interest.

Nice one evil. Does anyone else have Zombie Army Trilogy? Great game in co-op, campaign or horde mode. On sale this week! *cough, Steak*
Sharky, where you at? :)

Evil, if I get Vermintide, would you pick it up too? That would make 3 with Casey Bob.

Overwatch is looking like a definite game night. Noice!

Casey Bob, I'll join you & Expired on BF1 if you sign up.

Here's one for you if you could get the players. NHL 17 on team mode. Bloody brilliant fun, it's five v five i think. It plays a bit like a modern day Speedball for those of you who remember that.

The good thing is I suspect nobody really plays it on here so everyone would be as Shite as each other.

Great responses guys, thanks.  8)

Detski,

I have ordered Vermintide so let's make it Happen.  ;D

Deal. I should have my copy tomorrow.
There you go Bob, let's get a Vermintide night sorted.  ;)  I'll put up a thread and between us we can sort a day/date we are all available to play. It can be run weekly if everyone is up for that? 

There's room for another player as it's four player co-op! It's very Left For Dead style gameplay, so a full team communicating would be great.

Zombie Army Trilogy - As above I'll put up a separate thread and we can find a day we are available to play. I love me some zombie sniping.  ;D

stonesroses - NHL 17 is not a bad idea, I actually downloaded it (maybe it was NHL 16?) from EA Access because another forum member recommended the arcade mode as good fun even if you don't really like hockey (that's me). He compared it to the hockey game on the Sega Mega Drive, which convinced me to at least try it. I like the comparison to Speedball, that takes me back..

The problem with NHL is getting enough players. Although it's available on EA Access, how many people actually have this?

Cheers guys, that's two game nights with potentially weeks of gameplay sorted from your suggestions already. Particularly impressive that games were purchased based on our discussion.

Any more suggestions? Anyone else have an idea? Please keep them coming..

Nad usually puts up Forza (6 & Horizon 3) nights on Fridays. There hasn't been one for a few weeks but I'm sure one will pop up soon. Plus drift mentioned above the possibility of him putting up a Forza Night.

I noticed you playing Horizon 2 (I seem to recall a clip of a pink Land Rover flying through the air on my activity feed recently :D), if you wanted to play that online you could post an event and see who joins? I'd play an evening back on FH2 if available.

I'm up for Horizon 2 or 3 - both are good fun. I've been talking to Nad and Drift about popping up a Blur night again as well as that's lots of fun too. Just been too busy at the moment. Have been considering Trivial Pursuit as well but not sure if there's enough interest for that one

There you go Panda, you have a few willing players for Black Ops 3 and a few date options from Nad. Why not post up a game night (see OP for how to do that) and have your own Oldg night? This was exactly the idea of this thread, it would be great if you put up a night!  ;)

This thread has already generated some great Oldg nights on Overwatch, Zombie Army Trilogy, Warhammer Vermintide and a little CODBlops.

Great stuff, nice one guys!

It's better to organise some game nights on the basis of what you actually want to play rather than put up a night and hope for some interest.

I particularly like that some older titles have been revisited, as we all have games that have great co-op or multiplayer but people may have neglected or moved on from. This was exactly the point of this thread. :)

So are there any other games lurking in your collection that you want a night on? Keep them ideas coming...

I'm liking that suggestion Orbs, I would be up for a Sunset Overdrive night, Chaos Squad is a fun co op mode to play. It supports 8 players too, anyone else have this game? Maybe I'll put up a night and see if there's some interest...

Nad, did you want a co op partner for Halo5? I think I may have deleted it from my hard drive after cursing our way through Legendary, but maybe someone else is interested in a run through?

I would actually like to play through the original Borderlands again, but that would be a fairly large commitment at the moment.

I was thinking about a 4 player co-op campaigns games, that would increased the activity on xbox nights, so I thought of borderlands and halo 5, even though you did zat and are doing warhammer.

I was think about borderlands 2, at the time borderland 1 wasn't backwards compatible, but now that borderlands 1 bc, is I don't mind trying it it in co-op.

The only day's I can now game are Tuesdays & Thursdays & weekends, as this year I'm learning how to play dungeons and dragons tabletop rpgs, which I play on Mondays & Wednesday.

Speaking of dungeons and dragons there a free to play game Neverwinter which is a mmo rpg, where you can play co-op as well.

Hey Kooky! Long time no game.  :)

I only mentioned Borderlands 1 as when I originally played it on 360 I played through solo, only later discovering the joy of Borderlands played in co op with Borderlands 2. When it was free as a GWG I thought a co op campaign run through would be great.

I would however be happy to play 2 if preferred, it's one of my favourite games of all time.  8)

I've got both Borderlands but only played a little bit of the first one - might be interested if Expired doesn't want to join in himself as know he's a big fan.

Would be great if you could join us, I remember trying to get you to join BL2 when The Handsome Collection first came out. Expired is of course always welcome too, I though he would be more a PC version of Borderlands player?

So Borderlands (1 or 2) looks like a good one, cheers guys.

Nad, I was thinking along the same lines with the co op campaigns like ZAT or Halo, good for getting people playing together. Orbs' Sunset Overdrive suggestion is great because that doesn't require any lengthy commitment, as it can be some one off events.

Yep that was Bright Lights. I'd play poker if the night was doable. I was wondering about the Minecraft mini games if people have them ? My son plays them a lot but not played myself - think you can do private games and they could be a lot of fun with a few oldg.

Definitely up for this as I bought it again yesterday for the Xbox. Usual crap with me though Casey is finding a time I can get on, well at a decent hour anyway.

Hello we are fast approaching Autumn. I need to get my mojo back! I would like to bring back Overwatch on a Thursday. Perhaps we could alternate again with BF1 now it's free. Heck I could try to learn Titanfall if that suits? I realise that as silly season approaches we will all be playing Destiny and COD etc. However let's not give up on the above. PS. I can play Mondays through to Wednesdays as well generally!

Hi Casey, great post!

Okay, lets start with Overwatch. We said before to put up a night when you got back, so we can try out Doomfist and some of the other new stuff. Orbs was interested too. I'll put up a night for next Thursday. :)

Happy to alternate with BF1 if Expired wants to play still.

Titanfall now has horde frontier mode which was a fun co-op in the first game, that could be a good night.

Casey, any other game you want to play you can also put up a night and see who's interested. In this thread I always tried to encourage people to do so.

I chuckled at "silly season"  ;D

Wednesday's are fine Orbs, I only put up a night on Thursday as this was traditionally Overwatch night. Days can always be adjusted to best suit all players.

I was thinking about popping a night up for Trials Fusion when I'm back home as it's on Games with Gold - good fun for an occasional night but not enough tracks for a regular game night. Anyone interested ?

Cool, best nights for me are Fridays at the moment - how does the 1st or 8th sound depending on FH3 nights ?

Would have to be the September 8th for me, as September 1st is Call of Duty Beta weekend for me :)

Don't know if it's been suggested before, but what about a kind of "throwback Thursday"? Once a week/month/whatever have an old game, maybe year or two old minimum? Chances are most would have it because of gwg or ea access?

Are you suggesting Star Wars Battlefront before Battlefront 2 comes out ?

Post by: Gunner Chuckles on September 04, 2017, 09:42:15 pm
Anything really. I just figure that people may have the same old games sitting on their hard drive. But yeah, games like battlefront, titanfall 😁, old cod, anything really

Retro nights sound good to me. I believe Nad had a similar idea not that long ago. Let's see if we can get a few suggestions of what people would like to play - will have to take a look at my collection and post back.

Uncle Orbius is trying to get a Boringfield 3 night going

(https://images-eds-ssl.xboxlive.com/image?url=8Oaj9Ryq1G1_p3lLnXlsaZgGzAie6Mnu24_PawYuDYIoH77pJ.X5Z.MqQPibUVTcUEhtIM6H_wd3wibrMiEu7u6SpJy58b.z0XKDZc9GTIb681imkBGAyjo.uk_2HZ.P1X..r6e4.ahnRu5h4z55eNX.c1Hs4fQ7gpB4Cs4y86xrZontgyAQ4yUhvCsXWaXb9_FmOswGXx3tFcHp1lJfHal_Hl5fxFMsAdyiMogqGWs-&w=200&h=300&format=jpg)

The Unawesome Battlefield 3 will be available soon FREE through Xbox 'Games on Gold', and I want to know who is interested in some OldG BF3 game nights?

Got some BF3 nostalgia you want to relive?



Interested?

I'm sorry Jen, it's just when we play bf3 at DavDell Memorial weekend, the bf game I had once loved had aged so badly & plays horribly now, that it' makes cod ghost a game I despised looks like a blessing.

Anyway I don't think that it matter as Orbius has his knights of the bf square table

Picked up Dead by Daylight recently. Has anyone on here got it and fancy an evening of either running away from big bad baddies, or relentlessly stalking each other?

  • Monster Hunter World
  • The Division
  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Destiny 2
  • Overwatch
  • Gears 4 (co-op)
  • Vermintide
  • Divinity: Original Sin
We used to play Overwatch regularly a while back, some of us might be persuaded to set up another night at some point.

I’ve barely touched Gears 4 yet but could be persuaded to give it a shot depending on what night we ran it. Voodoo Raz is into Gears as well and could be another possible. Any nights in mind ?

I have trouble gaming during the week before 9 due to the kids but could potentially do a Tuesday from 9 if that's any good ? Sorry for the late reply, my xbox conked out so it's been difficult to commit to gaming nights.

Bought it upon release. Had a couple of games but not played since. Must have another go. Have some of the bugs been ironed out?

Anyone interested in an Apex Legends night early next week?


It's a free-to-play battle royale game by Respawn set in the Titanfall universe.


3 man squads only supported at this stage.

Had a few games last night with randoms. It's actually a good game. I would be interested depending on the night.

Because Blackstar and Jackfrags say it's quite good, and because it's free, I'd be up for an Apex game night. Keep in mind I've never really played BR games before apart from just one night of Fortnite.

It's probably more like CODs blackout mode then Fortnite. It's faster paced then PUBG. It's also a bit like Overwatch in the sense that it's hero based, each with their own special power. You are good at Shooters so you will be fine. Me I'm crap.
