I'll start calling a few minutes after to give everyone time. I'll have the game fullscreen and won't be able to see the thread after that, so your best bet is messaging someone else on the call if you miss it initially and want to join.[DOUBLEPOST=1480982483,1480981978][/DOUBLEPOST]If you've just gotten a request from a certain "Name Name", that's me. If you haven't, someone is probably very confused.

S1x is right that Twitch delay would be a major problem for most of the games, so Skype is the best option. [/QUOTE]
Ew.
Looks like it's a no-go for me. Have fun people.

A friend of mine streams through a Discord affiliate. I'll have to look into what she uses/how all that works and see what I can come up with.

I think I posted something like this in the last thread we had, but here's a list of all the games I've got that might work. Jackbox is kind of unique in only needing one copy, so it probably makes sense to figure out if there's anything else we'd want to do before the holiday sales.

[spoiler]
Mount and Blade: Warband - Napoleonic Wars - (16 or 32 players. I forget. This series' version of historical combat is always halfway decent and unintentionally funny, and the multiplayer version of it is something special)
Golf with your Friends (12. Haven't had a chance to play it, but I've heard good things)
Robot Roller Derby Disco Dodgeball (Something like 8. Retro arena shooters reimagined as dodgeball robots on roller skates. Brilliant)
Monaco (4. Co-op heists which I'm terrible at)
Rocket League (6)
Tabletop Simulator (Max of something like 10, but depends on the game)

Also have a bunch of strategy games that'd take multiple sessions and probably never end in the case of the Paradox games:
Civilization III/IV/V/VI, Total War Shogun 2, Europa Universalis IV, Crusader Kings II, Endless Legend, Endless Space

And a bunch of shooters:
Half Life/2 Deathmatch, Overwatch, Red Faction, Screencheat, Left 4 Dead/2, Battlefront II
[/spoiler]

And I don't have a problem with picking up other games if needed.

I've got M&B, would absolutely love to play Napoleonic Wars.

Second-favorite picks are Overwatch and Left 4 Dead.

I also quite like HL2: Deathmatch.

Never played Red Faction, but I have it.

Anyone else have preferences? Or limits to what they can buy/run, for that matter?

I have Monaco and l4d2 but haven't played either one. I am also totally down for tabletop simulator! I'm also interested in overwatch but don't have it.

I *think* i have red faction? I also have at least one civ game... 3 i think. There's also killing floor which i believe goes up to four players.

There's some other stuff I'm interested in too...overcooked looked kinda cool and so did move or die.

^Overcooked is a shoo-in for one of my games of the year, but it's unfortunately local-only. Both PSN and NVIDIA's fancy game-sharing programs only work with one other person, as far as I know, so that's probably not an option. Absolutely brilliant if you've got someone for couch co-op, though.

Blizzard is still running the standard version of Overwatch for $30 (the other editions are mostly cosmetics for other games) if that's enough to sway you.

Steam shows you for Civ III/IV/V and Red Faction: Armageddon, which I got in a pack and never played. Supposedly has some form of multiplayer.

I don't own Killing Floor, but I'd be up for getting it if there's interest.

Right, so these are (alphabetically) the games that got endorsed by at least two of us:

Civ V (Kat, RU, me)
Half-Life (2): Deathmatch (RU, me)
Killing Floor (monstr, me)
Left 4 Dead (Kat, RU, me)
Mount & Blade: Warband (RU, me)
Overwatch (RU, me)
Red Faction (Kat, RU, me)
Tabletop Simulator (Kat, me)

(all of these should have higher player caps than what we're likely to get except the standard modes of L4D and KF. TS will probably flip from board games to party games [Secret Palpatine?] around 6 people)

Anyone want to add their hat to any of those rings? I'm hoping to make this a little more regular than once a decade, but Civ V and L4D are the only ones with viable playercounts right now.

Speaking of Civ V, I'd be done for a play-by-email game regardless of how this turns out. Always wanted to try one.

I've never played a Civ game before, but it's always looked like fun. I might be able to spare some cash for it.

I can throw down for some civ but I can't guarantee the time to play

freaking just crazy busy and crazy stressed lately

if it's any time other than on the weekend before 9pm we can talk, unless it's the weekday before 4pm. Because that is also bad.

EDIT: CST[DOUBLEPOST=1486966936,1486966827][/DOUBLEPOST]I'm also game for TS[DOUBLEPOST=1486966983][/DOUBLEPOST]meh I'll get any game

but just one of them

If you guys have Street Fighter V that'd be a fun room.
