    No, not a group gaming session in the supermarket, but I was thinking it can be a bit tricky to run 4 to 6 player games at the 'big' LANs and it was a mistake last time, having stuff like Evolve, Pay Day just resulted in so much time wasted getting everyone together in games and broke up the day a bit, and really it's the games with lots of players that work well at big LANs.

    So with theme nights usually being 8-12 people, it might be good to hold a 5 hour co-op evening of 4 or 5 games.

    Killing Floor 2 would be a worthwhile inclusion, and I was thinking Spintires as well (only £3.30 on Instant Gaming just now). Maybe could give Payday 2 another shot as well.

    Anything else?

    In terms of date, probably looking around end of November / start of Dec.

    Maybe.

    There are couple of problem dates for me:-
    Friday 17th November - either late or not at all.
    1st weekend in December - iMatalan (I'm at a LAN)

    I don't have anything to add to your list just now.

    Dates:
    • I can be free most dates bar the 25th of November (exwork night out).

    Games:
    • Killing Floor 2 — Perfect shout as it seemed excellent and gives us a chance to refine it for future events.
    • Moonbase Alpha — Uhm, how can you nerds forget about this one ... ? For shame.
    • Payday 2 — Meh. I guess it's different but I'm not fussed.
    • Orion: Prelude — 79p on Steam and you can hit DINOSAURS with LIGHTSABERS.
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/104900/ORION_Prelude/
    • AirMech Strike — Free on steam and looks fun.
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/206500/AirMech_Strike/
    • Gary's Mod — I'll have a look to see if there're any good co-op game modes.
    • Dota 2 — ... ... ... yes?

    P.S.

    Oh! On the subject of AirMech Strike, Blizzcon announced that Star Craft II would be going free-to-play. Dunno if that makes any odds. I've never played it personally, but I know that anyone who has would dominate. (I assure you that my thousands of hours in Dota 2 do not mean I'd do the same there ... )

    Oh, oh, oh! What about Magicka? I think the entire Steam userbase owns it by osmosis at this point and it's a fun co-op game which is different to anything else we've listed.

    Will have a good look through these soon then start to finalise some details - probably pushing this into December just now.

    Doing a pub quiz night soon so that will push the next theme LAN back - if anyone wants details hit me up. Not so much a gaming thing, more just a chill evening with a few beers and doing a quiz night.

    Any LAN regulars welcome although 18+ because beers.
