pLayday revamp?

So, I pose this question:  would pLayday be better on a different day or at a different time or more Systems?

Currently, it seems like people may be able to make a 9pm slot easier than an 8pm.  However, lately we have gone for 2 hrs (8-10pm), and some people can’t play much past 10.  In the current iteration, the slot is 8-9pm and we play longer if we want to.  Would it be improved if it officially started at 9, and people who want to play longer just show up early?  I find this less likely to happen.

Another idea is to mix more systems in.  We have been exclusively Live for a bit now, and I haven’t documented the games people actually own yet (but I should).  We could branch out and fit in some Mario Kart Wii, or Team Fortress 2 for PC.

We all own PC’s.  Would people be willing to pick up games like Team Fortress 2 for $20 (or Orange Box for $30), Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, or freebie’s like Command and Conquer 1, or games we may already own like Diablo 2, Warcraft 3, Fallout Tactics, Defcon, Battlefield 2?

The PC Market certainly has some other options for gaming other than FPS that support more than 4 people, namely RTS and RPG games.

Also, if we want to incorporate PC gaming in, which IM Client should we use?  Since we all have an MSN Messanger accounts (your Live acct uses it, I recommend syncing them up) we could all actively begin to use that.  Or Steam has a friends list as well.

  1. I’m a big fan of pushing pLayday to 9pm for the summer months (sticking to Tuesday seems OK), and mixing in some Mario Kart Wii sounds awesome. I think Zazz and I are likely to stay console-only gamers — the PCs in our house are craptastic, and I don’t see us buying PC games that we already own for consoles.

  2. Sun: Afternoon-Evening
    Mon-Thurs: 7pm-10pm

    Multiplayer On Xbox 360:
    Halo 3
    CoD 4
    Orange Box

    Multiplayer on Wii:
    Mario Kart

    Would pick up TF2, Diablo 2, WC3 (DoTa?), Starcraft, UT.

  3. I am available most evenings, any one is generally as good as the others.

    I’m not super thrilled about console games… and thus have none.

    For the PC I have:
    UT2k4, Quake 3 (2 copies), Quake 2, Quake, Diablo 2, and TF2…

    If there was sufficient interest I’d consider running a dedicated TF2 server on the internet.
