Wait, Rift AND Defiance?! I thought it was just Defiance. That's pretty cool. Granted, these are games I don't necessarily care about much but free is free!

I played Defiance, it was quite fun. I would say if you like Borderlands, you would more than likely like Defiance. In fact, in some regards, I liked it more than Borderlands, particularly the whole massively multiplayer aspects of it, which made the world feel more dynamic and alive.

I might install that sometime this week then.

How's the TV show doing, in the meantime?

First season is done, and they are signed for a 2nd, as are Trion for a 2nd season of game content. It's actually a good show. Yes, it has that SyFy cheesy veneer to it, but it was very enjoyable. Ending the season on a cliffhanger didn't hurt either.

After a few hours of War Thunder it is definitely going on my list for Saturday, probably taking AoE2 off to play it for a bit over an hour, hopefully I can get the GWJ guys together for it.

I'll get in on War Thunder!

Parallax, have you played any War Thunder? I can't remember if you said you had or not.

If you haven't I will probably hold off on playing any more between now and Saturday so we can play togetherish, there seems to be a pretty hard divide for players after you have played awhile and have better planes.

I've not played a ton of it but I do have a few hours of arcade mode in.

Cool, then we may be at about the same level.

What time would work best for you? Didn't you have a multiplayer slot from 1PM-3PM?

I still don't have my schedule created but I'm sending out an e-mail to a bunch of people today to try to put that together. I should be able to book that time for War Thunder but I'll confirm when I know.

I was the one with open multiplayer slots.

Is anyone fine with trying a group game of Defiance around 5-7pm EST? It looks like only two of my multiplayer slots will be occupied for the time being, which means the other two are free game.

Unfortunately my GOME and MWO blocks are the only ones I _can't_ move and they are in that time frame.

Are any BF4 players getting it on PC? A friend and I are considering the purchase.

I'll join in the Magicka chaos, if there's room.

yeah! Anything we can get together for late at night, especially after around midnight where I'm sure most people will be sleeping would be GREAT!

I am all over BF4 on PC! There also should be Magicka room if you want in. I'm hoping to get my schedule posted today. That's my task for my lunch hour.

Alright, biting the battlefield bullet, then!

Well, I believe my open time slot is 11pm to 1am. And no one else seems to be chirping in on Defiance.

We'll see what happens. Today I'm going to try and get all kinds of video content together and make myself an Extra Life video.

I could get in on some Defiance. PC I presume Chris?

Yeah, I would be in for Defiance PC somewhere in the 11PM to 1AM time slot.

I just signed up, but I'll probably just do my own danged thing, which will involve lots of FFXIV. There's no way to broadcast DS gaming on Twitch, is there?

Sadly not. Man, I will pay Hella money to the company that makes a device that can easily take DS/3DS/Vita game play video and sound and pass it through USB. And no, those modded units from Asia don't count, I said easy.

Could do some Defiance in that slot, but I'd be a complete newb. Its installed on my gaming PC, but I've never actually spun it up.

Same here. I'd love to throw some 3DS games into the mix to discuss, but alas.

And I'll get the info updated as soon as I can, Dee! I sent a PM to TheWalt about making a room on the Vent server, as I'm not exactly sure how it works or if we should ask permission. So we'll see how that goes. I'm also going to see about having a post on the front page on Saturday with all the appropriate information. Today is a busy day, though, with trying to make my own Extra Life video (hurray last minute!) and other errands I gotta run.

Welcome to the club. I played it for about 30 minutes during a free weekend and that's it.

You guys are WAY ahead of me, I haven't even went to the link to install it yet.

Alright so, I've decided to got a lot more spur of the moment with this thing. Everyone I know who is theoretically able to play on Extra Life day can't commit to when because they might have a bunch of stuff happening. Or not. So I figure this: Since a pile of us are going to be on Vent anyway, we can probably easily just co-ordinate stuff that way. If enough people want to jump into something, I can just switch to that game. To that end, I'm going to pre-configure the following games to work with my streaming software on the assumption they may come up during the day:

-War Thunder
-Defiance
-Warframe (I'd really love to play this with some people, it's free-to-play and on Steam, cam aaaaan!)
-Diablo 3 (Couple of friends said they'd help me finally finish a run of this game so I can uninstall it)
-Borderlands 2 (I haven't finished any of the DLC and would love to)
-Battlefield 4
-Blacklight: Retribution (Also free-to-play and on Steam, would love to try out the Horde mode with people)
-Killing Floor (Own it, never played it, would love to)
-Alien Swarm (Also never played and would like to try, free on Steam)
-Magicka (A couple of people said they were interested in this)

I'll also configure the space games I'm using as downtime backups. If while on Vent, we decide we want to play something else as a group, I can likely add it to XSplit in a matter of minutes so I'm not hard set on this list, though I would love to try some of this stuff with people. If it is possible to create a room on the GWJ Vent server, that would be awesome. I was planning to hand out the room to a few people I know who aren't regular Goodjers though so if that's a problem and they don't want random strangers popping in the server, I'm happy to host my own Vent server for the day as well. Vent isn't hard to setup and I have the bandwidth to do it. Anyone else have stuff on PC they want to try? I can add it to my list too.

I have Killing Floor and played it a couple of times, so I'd be willing to stick that in my other time slot. I'll be updating my schedule today.
