I want a new gun. Or a different one, at least :D

We don't shoot each other much nowadays and its always the same 3 games when we do :( I don't like dods or bfbc2 and I only enjoy l4d2 in small doses. So I'm craving a go at something else. Anyone feel same?

I've been having a look around for some zero-cost options. We already own a couple of games we never play (css, hl2dm, (dod1.3!)), and I found that there are quite a lot of free shooters and a fair number of HL2 mods that we could try.

I want something old-school (no unlocks, no trading of silly hats, no micropayments etc). Waaaay back in the (pre-dod1.3) day I used to play Urban Terror and that was fun. Its had years of updates since I last played it so I've no clue what its like now. I'm also curious about Dystopia & Goldeneye:Source.

Whaddya think? Anyone up for it? Or should I shut up and go back to 1.3? :lol:

Willing to try anything but not interested in buying anything. disappointed in stuff ive bought over time or at least it was ok when it started and then got spoiled :(
Definitely not interested in renewing the DODs server or the account so if anyone wants to keep it they will have to start afresh. isnt fair on everyone me keeping the account and then when the server goes tits up everybody is waiting for me to submit or answer emails

I still love dods with friends I will rarely play on my own but I do agree we should mix it up a little. Goldeneye:Source is a great mod diffidently a cut above the rest it is sadly not really played in the UK any more but that being said im sure someone (Dave) has enough bandwidth to manage a handful of us having fun on it.

Some other great mods out there Hidden source is alot of fun and battlegrounds 2 was fun. Ill have a hunt around moddb see what I can find that looks interesting.

I'm game, pardon the pun :lol: .

This Goldeneye is 5.4GB, a pre-download may be useful.
Download page >> http://www.moddb.com/mods/goldeneye-source/downloads
This may come with it's own server like other HL2 games. The server is 1.18GB & I can't be sure how it'll set up until it does, if that make sense.
I'm happy to give it a bash. I'll get the files down & go from there.
I still have my oldish rig ( it's old ) which does well when doing server jobs. Not up to gaming these days though.

I still have insurgency installed :shock: from years ago. So I'm ready to go on that one :lol: .

Looking at the game download page is says it's about 1200MB. Not so bad? :oops:

I also have a mirror of the [GB] DOD:S server on the old rig, so if you want to play I can soon load it up ;) .

Will we be keeping the vent? or is it tied to the game server? I'm happy to go with funding for this.

Goldeneye sounds like a plan. I'll install it as soon as I get home from work and I'll text Ama to do the same :)

Sorry I couldn't make it. It took me ages to get the download of the Source SDK started, I kept getting a message saying the Steam servers were too busy to handle the request, and when it finally started downloading I got a truly pathetic download rate and it took several hours to complete.

But if you guys give Goldeneye another go then up I'm for it.

I've been looking at 'The Hidden:Source' > http://www.hidden-source.com < & I must say that this looks to be quite challenging. Hunting for a invisible enemy which is hunting you :shock: . Maybe this'll not appeal to all. But it's free & probably worth a look :) .

I've downloaded it but not installed it yet. Grabber/Freebie/Ama don't have it yet either (far as I know). Maybe one for next week? I fancy another crack at GE. What are the other game modes like?

Edit: Stopped being lazy and had a look for myself. Found this list of game modes. GUNGAME! :mrgreen:
