Do you remember your first multiplayer experience that was beyond 2 players? I remember one. It was called Goldeneye, and it has some fun yet bitter memories. Fun because it was awesome and proxy mines brought out lots of giggles. Bitter because this one guy was God like at the game; knew all the spawn locations, weapon locations, ammo locations, and essentially could not be defeated. 3 v 1? He still wins.
I remember when these polygons were mind blowing.
Anyway, if you were never made aware a fan community out there has recreated the entire experience as a source mod. And whichever one of you plays as the crouching, slapping, Oddjob there will be special punishment for you.
So to play, head on over to the downloads section of their site. Be sure to get the FULL VERSION. Even if you picked this up a long time ago it has had some patches since then. So just uninstall the previous version and load up this new one.
Stay tuned for server info, but as always we'll see you in the Teamspeak server at 9 p.m.
Server IP: 184.108.40.206:27015
OR Hostname: goldeneye.fites.net:27015
Mirror for installer: http://www.fites.net/gamenight/GoldenEye_Source_v4.2.3_full.exe (might be faster than other mirrors but this will only be available tonight, 10-11-2013.)

Another Monday, another game night announcement. This time we will be returning to the fields of battle on Battlefield 3.
But, Mahoney! What about the BF4 beta opening up?
That is so true, but I would hate to get a group of people together and we're all struggling to connect to the same server, and dealing with whatever Beta bugs are happening.
Don't you think the server population will be low?!
That's a possibility, but as a great virtual bear once said, "Only you can prevent low server populations." Invite your friends, spread the word from our Facebook Post, and consider streaking through the Quad with a FITES game night message on your butt cheeks (Don't do that last part).
To be honest, I had contemplated doing a week by week evolution of seeing who wanted to fire up some old Battlefield 2; then BF:BC2; then some BF3; and then the beta That would be torturous.
Stay tuned for a server announcement, but, as always, we hope to see you in the TS server around 9 p.m. on Friday night. I for one would love to do a nice HALO drop from a Blackhawk with a squad. Get in there and blow things up, WOOOOO!

Around here at FITES there are all of three people that play DOTA 2, myself being one of them, but now DOTA offers LAN support in their new "First Blood" update. It also included a GLaDOS announcer pack (which is awesome, BTW) and new crates! Yeah, crates aren't just for TF2.
The particulars about the LAN support aren't great though. Currently it's the same as hosting your own lobby, but now you don't need to ping the DOTA network. I was hoping for some kind of dedicated server option, which would make it better for tournaments at a LAN. It's nice to not need the outside connection, but hosting the lobby shouldn't be dependent on someone's hardware. It's just not optimal for a tournament, but less resource intensive than hosting a match from your computer and using your internet connection at the same time.
So, with some LAN support, does anyone feel like doing some easy learning lobbies at our upcoming Monthly LAN?
