    So, seeing as there was always no real Steam group for GW, (I'm not counting the other 1-2 ones that appear to be abandoned) myself and some other The Friends Listers decided that we might as well make our own, as we intended to play games together on Steam regardless, and that making a group would obviously help with organising these 'events'.

    So naturally, we're after other Steam-using GameWinners to play with as well, and organise more games to play with each other, etc. So yeah, I think we've sent out invites to a few of you, but to the others, we'd very much like you to join in - it's currently invite-only, but just give one of the admins a friend request on Steam and tell us you you are and that you want to join the group, and we'll gladly let you in!

    Group link:
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/alsheimers

    I think the main suggestion about what we're all gonna be doing together at the moment (although obviously we're not limited to one thing, etc. but it's what a couple of the others feel like doing with other GWers) is Realm of the Mad God, but feel free to post in here and on the group page about other PC/Steam games you want to do. (e.g. Supreme Commander 2 ;)) All members can create events as well, so that'll hopefully help communicate with the rest of the members.

    I like this idea. I don't really have much on Steam, but I joined and would definitely buy something if I liked the sound of it and a load of GW'ers were playing it!

    I suppose we could use this thread to announce/plan little gaming sessions that can be posted as events in the group.

    So I guess I'll start off with one for Realm of the Mad God. It's free, and I've been playing it with The Unwanted along with skype (it's not the best game for text chat). I mentioned doing it next weekend to Isoor, and he said he'd be available Friday and Sunday, which I guess kind of translates to Thurs and Sat for the US. I'm not good with timezones though, so I won't post the event in the group yet.

    We could also do stuff like The Ship in the future too, as I think a few of the existing members of the group have the game, and I know that there are a good few other GameWinners here that have it as well.

    (For those who aren't aware of it, it's a very fun and original multiplayer game (has a single-player campaign too, but the MP is where it's at) that is essentially the sole inspiration behind what Ubisoft did for the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood)


    EDIT: ^^Ah yes, and Magicka :D

    It's 10, but I'm cheap :D. I'll probably just end up randomly buying it someday out of boredom though.

    Well, I've sent you a friend request, but I think you'll need to accept that before I'm able to send you a group invite.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I'm able to send both! Group invite away

    ~Make sure you guys post your GW names in the group's announcement for those of you who aren't obvious and/or, like me, change your display name constantly.~

    Also, Worms Reloaded anyone?

    I am in the group, and I downloaded Realm of the Mad God. I haven't played it yet, but I will probably fire it up later tonight to try it out.

    I have always sucked at the Worms games, but I'm game!

    :D That's the spirit!
    ...Just ignore the fact that I've played Worms Reloaded alone for over 200 hours... :paranoid:

    But yeah, I'll see if I can remember to make a proper game suggestions announcement/list as well, so we can easily look at what we all have/want to play with other GameWinners, as we've got a good handful of members together now, so we're all bound to have different games we want to play. (naturally we can still suggest stuff here, but it may be easier to check if a list was compiled on the group page itself, so all the necessary info is in one place, etc)


    EDIT: vvv No worries; invite sent!

    Isoor, I think I'm already friends with you on Steam (my username is Cerdog). Definitely up for some group gaming at some point.

    We're gonna be the lamest clan ever. A load of us who have never played the games before running around together and failing.

    Excellent choice, if I may say so.

    So, can I invite people or is it just admins?

    Invite me now Croweater General. I've even practised Sup Com 2 (not that it's necessary because I'm still absolutely amazing).

    By the way, if any of you get a friend request from The Stig from Singapore, it's me.

    This is a great idea. I've joined.

    In terms of games, I'm all for Supreme Commander 2 or Magicka. I haven't actually played the latter yet.

    Hey, we should get a SupCom2 match going, seeing as there's three of us, now! :D (that I know of, anyway)

    We'd have to play in the morning/early afternoon (UK time), but it'd be possible.

    So I guess I better get to work friend requesting the rest of you.
    Not sure about that one, but Isoor mentioned making mods/active people admins anyway. I'll go promote you and Jamie for now.

    I'd be willing to buy Magicka if people were for sure planning on playing it. I think I remember the demo being fun, but I'm just not totally sold on it yet.

    If I buy SupCom2, then we have 6 people ready for that plus anyone who wants to purchase the game as well. That might be the way to go for an event or something. Just my ideas though. :)

    I'm good for playing TF2 if we end up doing that too btw. It's been a while and I never really played it all that much, but I could brush up on it and play as a pyro or something for a while.

    I am all for TF2 as well. It's free, so no one has an excuse to not play it. :D

    Only admins can invite people to a closed group.

    Until we get some events going, The Unwanted and I will be playing Realm of the Mad God on and off. If anyone wants to join in, feel free. We'd just have to agree on whatever server.
