GET HYPED

Hope I can make it! I haven't played DoD:S in a while but it used to be one of my favorite games.

TOO LATE, ALREADY HYPED.

Also, I've got a couple extra copies I picked up for a mere dollar during the holiday sale if anyone somehow doesn't have a copy and there somehow isn't a summer sale by then. Just hit me up.

I might have to partake. I miss the German rifle and the .30 cal machine gun.

Karabiner 98k forever!

Boo! Damn you differing timezones making this a Thursday at 10am, damn you work!

I'm in. It's been a while since I've played an FPS.

A great game! I'll tag along. Make some friends. Meet some lovers. A night of passion?

Nope, Pillow of heterosexuality prevents that. Just ask Sean and Shawn

OP, get carried.

M1 Garand fanboy since it was the OP weapon.

Do we have a server already? Is HLTV still a thing?

DoD was how I relaxed after a bad night of Counter-Strike. Having a rough night in CS? Hop over to DoD, grab the Kar98k, and one shot people for hours from across the map.

It was just the best thing ever. The shot, the kill notice, and then the chunky bolt action reload. So good.

I think it might be the most satisfying gun ever in an FPS for me. Or at least it was. If I recall my last adventures with the Source version of DoD correctly the Kar was no longer quite so awesome

6 is a bit early but I love me some DoD:S. I'll try and get on.

We don't have a server yet. The idea was that we could all just hop onto one of the many empty servers out there, but now that I actually think about it we could probably use one of our own with a password. After we get more than 6 or 7 playing it will start to sort to the top of the server list with the other 5 that people still play on and we'll have a handful of pubs who have been playing this game for 8 years running all over us.

I have never played this game and lack it. PSOPlayer, if you have a code then feel free to send it my way and I'll get stomped by all of you.

EDIT: And thank you oh generous PSOPlayer!

The joke's on you! Now that we're steamfriends™ I can drown your pitiful games list in games from the fashionably late sale.

I haven't played an FPS on mouse and keyboard since... well, the last GWJ playdate. Nobody laughed too loudly at my old man reaction times on that one, so I'll give this one a shot too.

I may even pick up a copy in advance and practice a bit!

Well said, I couldn't agree more.

I'm pretty sure I own this. I'll get it installed. And ventrilo I guess.

Haven't played this in a while...

Can't wait!

Edit: Wait, didn't you mean 8pm EDT? I just want to be sure, especially for GWJers who may be in areas that don't have Daylight Savings Time.

I'll go ahead and speak for Shawn and say yes, 8pm EDT. *grumble grumble daylight savings*

So can Apple owners of this game join in?

Of course! I tried to pick one of the most inclusive games I could think of.

And 4am for me. *sob*

I don't know if I've played DoD post-Source. But yet, I am pulled.
