SteamID & XBL Gamertag: ScottyGrayskull


Hello! <3

Bit about me. I've been a gamer for the most of my life. When I was seven and waiting for my parents to pick me up from piano lessons, the teacher's two sons showed me Super Mario Bros 2. Needless to say I never learned to play the piano very well...

I've flip-flopped several times between consoles and PCs. I generally love non-generic FPS games, puzzlers (Tetris is probably my favourite game of all time) and platformers of all shapes and sizes. I tolerate RPGs, but usually don't bother because I just don't have the time to invest in them.

I'm one of those freaks that regard FF7 and Ocarina of Time as merely average. That might be partly because I'm biased against the first round of 3D games that generally looked and played like crap compared to the 2d games at the time (during that generation I was a PC gamer, where they actually could do decent 3D at the time). By no means are they bad games, but plenty of games have done just as well and actually looked good in the process.

Yeah yeah, graphics aren't everything. But as important as gameplay is, looks still matter. It doesn't have to be the best looking thing around, but it at least has to be passable.

I tried to be a collector for awhile, but realized there was no market where I lived and gave that up. Currently I have an NES, SNES, GameBoy/GameBoy Colour/GameBoy Advance SP, DS, a 360, and of course my lovely gaming PC. ^_^

Hello, and welcome to another edition of PC Friday Night Fights! I've had a very tiring week, and I for one am certainly looking forward to playing with you all.

After a nap. Thanks to Obama however I was able to buy myself an energy drink to get through the rest of my workday with some motha'-fuckin' CHANGE!!

Now, you might notice that there aren't any new Team Fortress 2 maps this week. I've noticed recently that despite there being lots of FNF-worthy PC games out there, my (and CaffeinePowered's before that) posts have really only been about TF2. In addition, FNF has been little more than a copy of Team Fortress Tuesdays. That's going to start changing this week, and will in the coming weeks hopefully continue to expand to encompass a wide range of PC titles.


As I said for Team Fortress 2, we aren't going to do any new maps. What we are going to do however is some pickups (just like middle school dodgeball, two captains picking teams with the last person picked changing their name to "the fat kid" for the duration of the match), and RPSes (Rock/Paper/Shotgun, where a person from each team picks a class, the whole team picks that class, and the match goes as normal). If those get old I'm open to other zaniness, or just reverting back to normal play.

In addition to the gameplay changes, we've done away with the map voting plugin and have returned to a standard map rotation for the server. I can't recall the rotation atm, but it's 8-10 good maps with thankfully no arena to be seen. All the other maps in the map packs are still available for rtv (rocking the vote) however

As for Left 4 Dead, I figure it's time to actually promote the underutilized steam group. Everyone in that group has L4D (or at least should), so you can use that to help find people to play with instead of spamming invites to people who may not have the game. The group is invite only, but asking anybody in the group will (or at least should, and if not ask me) get you an invite. :)
