Thursday would be good
Thursday 13th or 20th April and what time ?

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...

Sunset Overdrive? It's the closest I've gotten to enjoying a zombie game

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.

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.

I've got them both, but the 360 version of borderlands 1 & 2.

Like you Jen played a little bit of borderlands 1, before I git bored, may co-op will make the game more fun ?

I suppose we could make it a fortnight sessions ?, before you move onto Detskiny 2 in September ?

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.

I've got them both, but the 360 version of borderlands 1 & 2.

I suppose we could make it a fortnight sessions ?, before you move onto Detskiny 2 in September ?

Fortnighty could work, and Lol at Detskiny 2  ;D


Anyone else have a suggestion? Remember, this isn't what detski would like to play, it's what you want...

What detski would like to play ? You spend to much time playing with yourself.

Maybe a poker night

Joystick in my hand since I were a lad.  :P
I just meant that I was hoping other people would post up some game nights too.

Poker could be good, I never really played Prominence Poker that much, someone posted up a night for it not so long ago but got very little response.
