    After the Diablo II thread, and the people wanting to get together and play, I thought maybe we should try to get something together.

    I know there's Gameranger, but I thought maybe we could organize some play times with a few of the more popular games on here. I'm not really sure how to do this yet, but maybe we could take a poll on what games we would be playing most. Then either exchange messaging service handles, email adresses, gameranger handles, blizzard battle.net accounts, or whatever, and contact eachother that way. Or we could just use this thread to announce times or games to be played. Although I don't know how happy the admins would be with that.

    If anyone has any ideas please share 'em. This could work out to be pretty cool, or it could bomb just as well :p Just thought I'd put my idea out there.

    I think the first thing we should do is list all of the online MP-compatible games we have, and we can go from there.

    As for me:
    -Red Faction
    -No One Lives Forever
    -Diablo II
    -Sacrifice
    -Diablo
    -Starcraft
    -Unreal Tournament (Once I get it in the mail.)

    ...and that's about it. And mind you, my NOLF performance isn't so hot.

    All you have to do to play SC with me is message me on US East:

    -black-death-

    I'm on a lot during the weekends, not so much during the week.

    Unfortunately (well that depends on how much you like SC), SC is the only game I play, so i won't be able to play with any MR members on any other games.

    When I ordered UT a few weeks ago and got the empty box, it was blue. Is that the GOTY edition?

    Hopefully I'll get a box with a GAME ACTUALLY IN IT soon.

    ......guess not.

    Thanks. Though, No One Lives Forever ended up being GOTY edition even though it didn't say so on the box...
