Over at the Kotaku Meeting, we floated the idea of a Kotaku AU Gaming Club, where we'd pick out something more retro, or perhaps just not super-recent, play it over the weekend and talk about it afterwards. It's something I'd love to get started this weekend, but I've got to feed the 5 inch Floppy as well, so I figure tomorrow we'll keep it simple by setting up server and having a chilled game of Counter-Strike: Source.
Some Kotaku AU members will obviously be better than others, so rather than think of this as a competition, think of it as a community event. A chance to hang out with & get to know your fellow Kotakuers. And of course, kill them repeatedly.
Now, unfortunately, seeing as there's two Grand Finals this weekend, this will probably conflict with some peoples' plans. Kick off should be at about 2.30pm, so how about I set up a server at around 1pm, post the IP in this thread, and let's all play for about an hour? Keep in mind this is the first time we've done this, so I've got no idea what the demand will be like.
Polish your Deagles and AWPs. Hope to see you tomorrow!
