Dogfight

We have “game night” at our office every two weeks and our last shindig was last night. The game is Call of Duty 2. Let me know if you want to join in next time. There were about 10 people here and we played for 3 hours. One of the things that has always bugged me about computer games is that they’re all first person shooters. What’s fun about game night is we’re all playing each other and have comparable systems. So it makes for an entertaining night.

Now imagine an airplane game centered around this idea. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to have a dogfight with ten other people all flying fighter jets? Perhaps that would get old fast but I’d like to see a game like that. Imagine the collisions.

  1. What airplane game did you have in mind, exactly?

    I think that we oughta at least try it. Why should we be limited to just one game on game night?

    Tell you what. You find the game and install it. Then I’ll install it. We’ll get a little two player game going while everyone else is playing COD2 and then when people are curious, they can install it and join in.

    Maybe we could allocate like 30 minutes of game night to trying new games or something?

  2. Old school Crimson skies let’s you play collaborative multiplayer. So do some of those great space games. I think there’s a version of Wing Commander, and some variant on the Tie Fighter/X-Wing series that plays multiplayer.

    But for real dog fight action, I don’t know. 🙂

  3. I think you guys should invest in an old school arcade game for the Tornado Office like Mrs Pac Man, Galaga, or Centipede. Nothing says competition like owning the high score. 🙂

  4. My previous employer had an original Asteroids arcade machine in the conference room… Unfortunately, we got burned out on it. But it was fun for a while.

  5. Have to played with http://www.bunchball.com? Might I suggest some interblog game challenges? I though about it a while ago and thought it might be fun…

    They have ASTEROIDS for crying out loud!!!

    How’s about we fight it out???

    I was waiting for chess to get some serious inter blog strategy action on the go… bed time for me however but if you head over I will promptly kick your highscore on my lunch break tomorrow!

    Spread the word… this could be fun 😉

  6. You have been knocked off by a long shot… 31,300 is the new high score…

    I just realised there is a chat window on it too should you wish to taunt on the game…

    Cheers

  7. PS… My mate has sworn noone else will get in the top 10… oh yeah, and sorry for multiple comments, don’t want to hog.

  8. Well, I gave it a good run for the money but Davy is really good. That’s a high score. Did you look at the global scores? How on earth did they do that?

  9. yeah man, the globals are massive, I am too busy at work but will be back on later to oust him… he has laid me the challenge to reclaim all top 10 slots… this could get fun!

    I actually saw you fighting back but couldn’t join in…

  10. Man I am going to have to eat my hat unless I pull something out the bag… How am I ever gonna get my reboot done whilst trying to beat that???
