Night Owl Online Gaming

This meetup series was created to provide a regular time slot that you are most likely to find at least one other geek girl gaming online.

Apologies for the 'night owl' hours, but I also play with a MMO group on Friday evenings 7-10pm. They are an East Coast group, so that leaves Friday late night to continue my gaming binge!

We can also schedule other online play dates through chat, so don't worry if you can't make the time slot. :)

Here's how to join us:

Currently the Geek Girls have a Steam group and a C3 (text + voice chat) channel that we can use for coordinating and communicating during our online gameplay.

Download Steam:
http://store.steampowered.com/about/
GGSV on Steam:
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/GeekGirlsSiliconValley

Steam is a combination of game community and extensive library of downloadable games (some free, others not--but there are often great deals). Games on Steam range from award-winning PC games to niche indie games. If you would like to game with us on Steam, our group is invite only. Contact Sally (GGSV Meetup organizer) with your Steam username, or send a message to darksirensally on Steam so you can be added.

Our C3 Channel:
http://c3links.com/?XjULvqMon (pass: geekgirlsrock)

C3 is a free chat service catering to online gamers, much like Ventrilo, TeamSpeak or Mumble, except we do not need to maintain our own server. The C3 channel link provided will automatically connect you to our GGSV channel once you have C3 installed. We can use C3 for non-Steam games (many MMOs fall into this category).

This event will remain on our calendar to inform and remind members of our online gaming tools, so that even if you can't make Friday late night, you can still coordinate with other players through Steam or C3 to game on other days.

Hope to see you online!

    Sorry I didn't make it. I am having series sleep issues, and I went to take a nap about 8:30 that lasted until almost midnight. Then I was up until 4. FML.

    I'm playing Minecraft on a faction server with a bunch of my friends from Seattle who would probably love to have people at least join the server and either develop their own faction or join ours. My handle is my name :)

      Cool, I'm kind of stuck now. Do you have enough geek girls playing Neverwinter??

  • Sally

    OK gals, I am finally ready to go on c3 after some crazy shenanigans with my headset. I'd rather we have some sorta unified way to communicate so if you're gonna play with us come on into the channel. Download C3:

    Choosing the top three from the poll, we have Borderlands 2, Neverwinter and Rift. Neverwinter is the top ranked. I have all 3 games installed and I'd suggest you also acquire them for tomorrow if you want to play those games. :) Borderlands 2 does cost $$ but it is only $20 now on Steam.

    I will be online by around 7pm tomorrow but I'll be playing with my other lil Neverwinter group till our start time. You can leave me messages on C3 or Steam and I will answer them.

    Also if you use Skype I am on as user darksirensally. I actually use Skype more than C3, but I know that many online gamers tend to want a push-to-chat interface, which C3 has but Skype does not.

      Wow, neverwinter is 2 hrs in and only 60% downloaded on the patch. Crazy

      Yea mine took some time too. I dl it the other night. But daily patches have been really quick thus far :)

    Hi, all! Haven't attended any of the other events yet (been meaning to!). Thought this might be a nice way to meet a few folks at a time. :)

    As for games, I have Path of Exile (6p coop, I think) Awesomenauts (3v3), Sonic All-Stars Racing (10p), et al.

    I love DragonRealms, but canceled my account for a while. I started in 2001. My main character is Talliska. It started to be a huge timesink for me when I started getting involved in in-game politics. Maintaining the amount of presence I needed to be relevant in those kind of positions took a loooot of time.

    The even bigger problem is that I actually *loved* the politicking and social aspect so much (when it didn't spill into OOC drama, anyways) that I would have a hard time not doing it all over again if I reactivated. :)

    I started playing MMO's casually because I never play those to RP. So I could keep my hours more under control!

    But yes, we should talk about what to play. I've not played LoL ever! I like the idea of playing Borderlands 2. I've not played it either but I want to. I think it'd be pretty fun.

      I play Neverwinter on Fridays before this late night time slot actually, if you wanna join a group of 4! Also love Rift as far as mmo's go. Or Guild Wars 2.

    • Beth J.

      This is mildly embarassing to say, but I've not joined a group in Neverwinter, so I've never done any of the instances. I know. Crazy. And I have two level 60s!

    I'm not an MMO girl (I get my online RPG jones out with DragonRealms, because I'm old school) but if anyone wants to do multiplayer I've got a couple of things - Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Borderlands 1 and 2, probably going to download hearthstone this week at some point because boyfriend is into it. Also I may have a league of legends account but I've never actually played it so, you know, if you can deal with a total newb who will probably lose all the matches, I'm down for it.
    Steam name is Cloud4598. My picture is of a japanese girl (who is in AKB48 and if you ask me about them I will geek out for hours.)

    June 9, 2014

    • Beth J.

      I know who AKB48 is! I was really upset to hear the news about the fan attack. So awful.

  • Sharon T

    I'm not currently an online RPGer (except very basic iOS), so want to try to make this to check out some of the free ones on steam or whatever

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
