Steam has announced a beta version of game sharing that will allow users to share their game library with up to ten family and friends. A feature that was originally announced on the "XBone 1", but then removed as part of dealing with DRM has been picked up by the GabeN army.
Currently you need to request access, and there are limitations. You can't share the game as in you both play it at once, but a friend can play a game while you play something else. As the primary account holder you would take priority. So if a friend is playing your copy of Payday 2, and you want to play, it will prompt the other user to buy the game and give them a couple minutes before the game shuts down.
It doesn't appear to have the option (yet) to allow you both to play the game together at the same time.
People here tend to have the same games already, but we could start up a FITES sharing pool. What are some thoughts? Does anyone want to take a stab at game sharing?

There's yet another Humble Bundle option out there that will give people the chance to pay what they like for a boat load of games, all while giving to charity. This time it's The Indie Gala, and Killing Floor plus all DLC is up for grabs.
At the time of this writing you need to pay $5.91 in order to get the Killing Floor deal. It is currently up for sale for the next seven days.
Killing Floor is Co-op class based zombie killer game. It's unique in that the game scales in difficulty depending on how many people are in the server. Depending on what map you are playing it may be beneficial to plan out your classes in advance.
Paying only $6 for all the DLC in the game is already worth it. If you don't own Killing Floor, then $6 for the game is an outright steal, let alone all the DLC. Jump on this while you can. Killing Floor is always being played at FITES LAN events. Someone has a server up and running somewhere.
At one of our previous events Vitality Gaming had a 32 players server going. Since the number of zombies in Killing Floor scale up with each player... it was a mad house.

Our past few game nights have been a little large on the scale, especially with our most recent Battlefield 3 night. We've been loving the turn out, and just because we have a large group of people doesn't mean we should turn a blind eye to some other great games we have.
For game night this Friday night we have a grab bag of fun. We'll be looking for players in Payday 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and DOTA 2 (Free to Play). The team sizes in these games are pretty small, but it means that your teamspeak channel might not be as crowded.
If you have a different game you are looking to play, and want to party up with people, don't forget there is a section for that on our forums. The "Looking for Group" section is the place to post up a request for players. Have to work on game night, but not on Wednesday? Post in that forum to look for players for whatever game you have in mind.
