It's looking like Team Fortress 2 will be the winner, but here are some more ideas:

  • Dungeon Defenders
  • Sanctum 2
  • StarCraft
  • Age of Empires II HD

Are any of those free to play? That's really my only deal breaker at this point.

Nope, and unfortunately the Steam sale is over :P

Isn't Dungeon Defenders 2 free to play?

I have Starcraft, and have played it marginally. Never played AoE II, but I have it.

According to the interwebs, Dungeon Defenders 2 is free. If we're going for that game style, I also have Orcs Must Die 2. But that's only 2 player, in case turnout is low.

Saturday @ 7:00 EST is the date & time? I should be able to play, albeit I'll be late to the party (closer to 8:00 pm for me to join as I have to pick up kid from work).

I've played TF2 once, but I'm not afraid of getting destroyed. I'm also cool with buying something provided it's reasonably cheap.

Of the games mentioned so far, I've got Sonic Racing All-Stars Transformed, Dungeon Defenders & Civ 5.

Another one I've heard really good things about is Path of Exile. It's free to play as well.

Sweet, I'll re-install it and get it ready to roll. I might be a bit late, but hopefully not if things go as planned.

All right. I'm....the only person on here who plays TF2 regularly, aren't I? XD

@jkersey450 - We might need you to carry the team in Mann vs. Machine. If we play other modes, just make sure you're on my team.

I'm definitely a noob XD. I just got done playing for about an hour for my first time. I really enjoy it, but I'm not very good haha. I will enjoy playing with you all!

I've played it quite a bit, but it's been a loooong time. I suppose you could say I've been in retirement after my tour of duty.

I can't be any worse at this than I am at any other shooter. Apparently I played it back when I first got the Orange Box, but I have absolutely no memory of it. That bodes well!

I can at least shoot people (decently) since I'm forced to use the mouse / keyboard on this one. I tend to favor the controller even for games like Warframe, but most 1st person shooters I really don't have a chance otherwise haha.

The sniper class seems the easiest to "adapt" to, at least for me. The assault classes are a lot more dynamic than I initially thought they would play out before reading the wiki.

Sorry for being ill-prepared for our gaming session last night, everyone! Despite the late start, I had a blast (from the past) with TF2. We should try to make this a regular thing, so what sort of frequency would work best for you guys? We could be really ambitious and shoot for weekly or maybe scale it back and try for every 2 - 4 weeks. If we can get in a groove with this thing, we could probably plot out what games we want to play in advance a little better so we're not making a decision the day before haha.

Also, if anyone wants to play Sanctum 2 co-op sometime, let me know :D I think it supports 4 players, so we could potentially get a group together, if enough people have it.

@I'd be down to try some sanctum 2 multiplayer. I might even have a spare key kicking around.

Sanctum 2 looks like a lot of fun - I'd be in for playing, but unfortunately as witnessed last night, I'm not always in control of my schedule so I'm not very dependable.

I'd definitely be in for Sanctum 2
