Our last game night was a bit of a success. We had games of DOTA and Killing Floor happening. People were in the TS server, and it seemed like everyone was having a good time.
So why not have another game night? This Friday it's time to dive into the world of more Free to Play silliness with Super Monday Night Combat.
It's prudent at this point to mention that you can earn HATS FOR TF2 in this game.
The game allows for up to 10 people to form their own lobby of players and involves a great deal of strategy. It's also a very interesting game since the available characters to play changes from week to week, allowing for a great deal of variety in game play.
There will also be plenty of other players with other games to play. Killing Floor was a huge hit last week. Make sure you spread the word! More players means more fun for everyone, so do us a solid and help expand our gaming community.
If anyone has recorded videos of their gameplay on a FITES night, let us know! We'd love to watch and share it out with our friends.

Everyone, we're announcing another FITES Game Night! In an attempt to break into some new ground we're going to try a new game, DOTA 2. If you don't have a copy yet be sure to message me (here or on Steam) and I will be sure to send you a key. (Seriously, there are enough free keys floating around we could probably supply one to every person at the LAN.)
If you are new to DOTA 2 it would help to look into some strategy guides. LoL players will feel right at home, but don't be discouraged by the learning curve.
In case you are not interested we'll also have staff and other players on hand to play some L4D2 or Killing Floor.
We're trying a new plan of picking three games, but focusing on one. This way we can let people know what to have installed.
Let us know if you'll be on that night, and be sure to share our post about it with your Facebook friends! Let's max out the load capacity of the team Speak server and smoke check the modem it's attached to
Also, funny DOTA 2 video, because I think it's hilarious: (BOTD [Beware Of The Dubstep])

All too often the whole idea of E3 comes down to the "Console War", and even though I've been a console player of more platforms than I care to admit I've pretty much left the world of consoles behind. Seriously, my 360 is nothing more than a Plex streaming box for me, and a crappy one at that.
But now with those guys done talking we can finally get to seeing some games. Take for instance this beautiful gem that was announced:
Tom Clancy's The Division is a fully social game that allows you come in and out of the game as you need and even has support for in game trading (no word on hats as yet). Currently game company Ubisoft has not announced PC support, instead saying the game is "[p]owered by our new game engine Snowdrop™, tailor-made for next-gen consoles." But not all is lost since the game also has tablet support, that allows you to tap into the game on your smart phone or tablet to participate with your team as well.
I have no doubt the line about the next gen consoles is meant as way to stay on people's minds during the console love fest that is E3, but I do fear that PC support and controls will be added on more as an after thought. I'm sure it won't take long for anyone to recall a game they have played on PC where the control mechanisms were geared more towards having a controller in your hands than a mouse and keyboard.
While we wait for more news on this game be sure to join our forums and let us know your thoughts on the current state of E3, PC gaming, and what you hope to see more of. Also, don't forget that registration is open for our summer LAN party. Stay tuned for tournament announcements!
