What, were you going to play GTA V? Take a break from that and come play Team Fortress 2 with the Gamers With Jobs community! Thanks to jdzappa and his donation we're going to put on our funny hats and shoot rockets. The fun starts at 8:30PM EST and you can find Gamers With Jobs server info here.

When the time comes, we'll post the password so you can jump in and play!

We use in-game voice!

Server password is jakeleg.

Self-propelled ammo magnet, at your service, sir!

I finally get an excuse to try this game. It came out in a window when I didn't have a PC so I missed out on it. It's a hat RPG right?

I think it's a MMO, but I could it be wrong So, be ready for hours of grinding

So excite!

Looking forward to this, but willing to sit out if anyone new to the game wants to give it a go

Kind of feel the same way. If there's a lot of people who don't play TF2 often I'd rather let them enjoy. I still get plenty of enjoyment out of TF2 every other day of the year.

If space permits, I'll log on and play.

And of course I have to work

Have fun guys!

Hey everyone,

Gumbie has been gracious enough to lock down Stan's Server for GWJers only tonight, so we'll at least have room for 24. Later on I'd be happy to do a little man vs machine with some of you who are more into co-op. If worse comes to worst, we'll grab good sized Goodjer platoon and go take over some random server.

TLDR -we'll find a way to get everyone in.

Send me a Steam message when you switch to Mann vs Machine.
Like the rest of the regulars here, I will give way to new GWJers wanting to check out TF2. Hopefully we gain some new regulars after this.

I think I've only played MvM mode once or twice. I would definitely be interested in playing some of that.

Maybe you guys are still playing when I am done working....MvM sounds good if that is the case.

Ohhh neat! Haven't played in ages and I'm free tonight. Might have to jump on in.

I'd love to get play in this tonight. I'll probably be playing GTA V while in queue most likely.

Current regulars, keep in mind VEKrueger's server is available for overflow if Stan's fills up (and it sounds like it might).

Thanks to the Daily Planet job, it looks like I'm going to be late, so don't worry about me. I will stick to heckling if too many people show up.

What voice service are we using to communicate in this one? In game voice, Ventrillo, or something else?

In-game. It works flawlessly.

I was kind of looking forward to teaching new folks to always check their six. But, since I play a lot, I will gladly yield a place to new/haven't-played-in-a-long-while players. I can always teach you later if you all keep playing.

I think I will come out of retirement for the night

Apparently it's been so long since I played Steam needs to "update your content to be more efficient" or some such. The end result seems to be purgatory so far.

7% .... 8%

This......

Well, we got the server warmed up for ya. Have fun.

By the time this finishes the night will be over!

If anyone wants to try figuring out this Mann vs. Machine thing, hit me up on Steam.

Thanks for the pleasant evening everyone, especially jdzappa.

I felt like a headless chicken playing Payload (hadn't played that before) so apologies to whoever was on my team for that.

Ah yes, refresh fortress how I've missed thee. Not.

Great time guys - got to head out for dinner but will be back on laterz.

Demoman: "Thanks, lads."

It was fun to have some of the staff mixing it up with some of the regulars.

Special thanks to jdzappa for sponsorship of the night and selection of TF2. Good times!

Thanks for the game night, jdzappa. I saw several great close-ups of you when I was being shown my death-screen. For some reason my mic wasn't working in-game (though it worked when I clicked the "test" button in the options). Was there a push-to-talk button I missed?

It was the first time I've really played the game. I can certainly see the appeal. I had very little idea of what was going on, and no concept of how people were building equipment or going "uber". But I was able to figure out how to shoot at people wearing the opposite color uniform as me and that was entertaining in itself.

The highlight was when I exited the wrong way after respawning and ended up in some part of the map that nobody was playing in yet. I spent about 5 lonely mins trying to find my way out. Eventually someone saved me by telling me to follow the tracks. That actually made a lot of sense in retrospect.
