Blacklight Retribution and/or Hawken

I'm going to try and put some time into BLR and Hawken at nights now that my team has been eliminated from the playoffs lol (fucking Leafs!).   FadeIntoBlack mentioned we should get some FPS nights going and I agree!

Bother are F2P FPS and are stellar in quality.  Dedicated servers, in game chat, amazing graphics and game play....all good in the hood.  I haven't played in a few months so I'm not sure about all the new stuff in the games. 

BlowMonkey_on if you don't have me on steam yet :)

 

(old reviews/gameplay but gives you the gist)

Currently Playing: 

I tried BLR briefly a while back, really impressive for a f2p but I didn't see a reason to play it over BF3.  Hawken looks really cool, downloaded it but have yet to install.  I suffer from too many impulse purchases during Steam sales and have a library full of games I don't have time to play.  I am up for some fps nights though.

I'm down for anything - just trying to find something the majority can play (i.e. I have BF3.....on the PS3 but not on the PC).  Tribes Ascend, Team Fortress 2, Planetside 2 would be some other options that everyone has access too as well.

I just played some Hawken for the first time... it is a great F2P game.   I will probably donwload Blacklight Retribution although it seems like I played it before.

I'm new to pc gaming,but would love to play with people from here. I can't run those titles,I tried. I do have League of Legends and play with Cardiac Wolf. Is it possible to get a 5vs5 private game with people on here? I play regularly with Vapor187 and Cardiac counts as 3. A couple more and it should be fun. I play for fun still and trying to get better.

You uninstalled LoL?  Blasphemy!

I am definitely up to playing some LoL.  That is another good F2P game.   

 

 

Gas, If you haven't already tried see if you can run Team Fortress 2 on Steam.   I doublt that it is as demanding as the other games he was mentioning.  That is another good F2P game that a lot of people have.

You are forgiven.  I have had to uninstall numerous free games and a few I paid for to make reoom on the HDD.  When I built this PC, I didn't realize there would be so many free and cheap games that I would get.  I do have an external HDD which I use to backup that I could use to store game clients if needed.    I would like to get two more internal hard drives for a raid configuration and expand storage.
