  • We Can Build it Bigger

    We decided to revisit the 2003 classic Alhambra today. Turns out it's still a fun game, even with just three players. Wintertide, Megabyte, and Grey square (triangle?) off to see who can make the best of what we have to work with. Who's gonna build the best city ever? You'll just to watch and see!

  • Playing a Roll

    We checked out this game called Roll Player today and it was a heck of a lot of fun! Not a ton of player interaction but the elements that it tries to bring together are quite interesting. You play a character, straight out of a Dungeons & Dragons, trying to max your states, buy the best gear, and stay true to your alignment and backstory. Watch on to see how it goes!

  • Nite Shift Conquers Calus!

    After some hard grinding over the course of the games first week, Nite Shift was ready to take on the Leviathan in the first raid released on Destiny 2.  Not only did Nite Shift take down Calus, the final boss of the four part raid, but they did so again to ensure other members were able to get their loot before the weekly reset. Read on for more info!

  • Yahtzee, Codenames, Who's Counting?

    Yup. We played Yahtzee. I know, very exciting. Now for the hype-man text: Watch as we play this classic, banging game where you roll dice and risk it all to get the highest score! Who will take home all the cheese, the moolah, the bread? You're just gonna have to watch and find out. Oh, and we played Codenames too.

Hello all. My game name is Dexterryu (had that name for over 20 years now), and my real name is Chris.

I'm looking forward to joining this gaming community. I'm 37 and have been gaming since elementary school. As I grew up a lot of my gaming friends grew out of the hobby so I'm now seeking to meet some new people that enjoy it as much as I still do.

Right now I'm primarily playing Overwatch, and it's the first multiplayer FPS game I've really gotten into since Unreal Tournament (the original from 1999). I enjoy the fact that I can be competitive with it without having the best aim as my reflexes aren't what they used to be and my aim is rusty. I primarily play Reinhardt, but am pretty good with Symmetra and Mei. I heal with Mercy as well.

Having gotten increasingly frustrated with solo queuing and the lack of teamwork, I'm looking to start playing with people that like to work as a team. That said, I realize that we're gaming to have fun, understand mistakes will be made, and won't freak out after a frustrating loss.

Prior to Overwatch, I was big into MMO's starting with Ultima Online, then into Dark Ages of Camelot and WoW. I played WoW heavily (probably too heavily) from launch through WotLK. I did everything from top tier raiding (participating in some top 20 US kills) and Arena (made gladiator rank in Seasons 2 & 3). I sort of died out on MMO's about 5 years ago and played a lot of single player stuff (love Witcher, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect series).

Thanks for reading. I look forward to meeting and gaming with you guys.

Welcome to IGC! It seems we have a lot in common already. Glad to have a MMO vet on our side, and someone who is already a seasoned adult at that. We seem to like the same kinds of games too, you and I. Looking for forward to meeting you as well!

Greetings! Sorry I have been so busy running around between work and RL I haven't got a chance to see on yet and play with you. Hopefully that will change this week!

Thanks. I got your request on battlenet and have seen you on a few times. You're obviously a much higher skilled player than I am but I'd love for help to improve that or get a group of Overwatch Players in my skill range to play and grow with. If anyone is in the 40-45 range and wants to team up for some QP or Competitive please let me know. Battletag: Dexterryu#1953

Sure thing, when we do quick play, it doesn't matter much who yah play with, so we'll pick you up next time I see you!

Right now we are in the process of rebuilding for competitive play and hopefully you'll get a group when we do that and bring in some members around that level. We will certainly play some quick play though because it's only quick play! I'll look for you this weekend/next week for sure!
