The Monday AAR: Some news about things that are new

Good Monday! If you're having a bad day, it's time to turn that frown into a smile! I know I did. I may have been mashed into an overpacked train car by a bunch of zombie commuters on my way to work this morning, and I may have inadvertently elbowed a woman in the face during the ensuing struggle, but hey! It's a good Monday.

Here's what's been happening:

    • The ArmA II server is up and running and ready to OH NO. 2. IS. DOWN. all night long! Some of the OMGeeks (led by ArmA II's number one proponent INQUE) have done some sessions this weekend, and he's put up some documentation of one of the missions they did in the form of an AAR. OMGeek member Blackops also recorded some footage of their gameplay. Check it out, then proceed here and join us in a mission or two!

    • Indie developer Eden Industries has given us a chance to try their soon-to-be-released game, Waveform! We'll be doing some more coverage in the coming days. In a nutshell, it's about guiding a wave of light through space. Read my earlier post about it for more information, along with some screenshots and a gameplay video.

    • In case you haven't noticed, we have a new writer on the blog! OMGeek moderator psycrow117 has joined us as a contributor. He'll be posting news about new indie games, indie game bundles, and pretty much anything interesting and relevant that he wants to share with the community. Feel free to leave a few words of welcome here. 8)

    • Finally, I'd like to remind everyone that BF3 games are still scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sunday evenings starting at 8! The OMGeek Battlefield 3 server is set to hardcore mode, so be extra careful. And call out targets. And hump the dirt. Often!

Monday AAR - New Friends and a New World to Explore

Happy Monday, everyone!

We've had a very eventful week, with new OMGeeks joining up from all over Southeast Asia. It's great to see so many new names in the chatroom. If you haven't done so yet, drop by so we can all get acquainted. Is good idea, yes?

Here's what's been happening this past week:

    • New friends: Welcome to all of our new signups! We're very happy to have you onboard, and for all the guys who were present during yesterday's games, thank you for making things so fun. We value your presence and we want to know each and every one of you, so why don't you introduce yourself in our newbies thread, and visit the chatroom? We'll be very glad if you did.

    • Skirmish Sunday: Yesterday was officially our second Skirmish Sunday, and with a new and improved doctrine (with new and improved squad names), we totally felt more confident about running out there into the thick of it while yelling all sorts of mil-porn catchphrases: "Force Two advancing to Echo--Force One, I suggest you move up to hold the Charlie-Delta line." LIKE A BOSS. Cue dead-serious military-sounding orchestra music in the background. All in all, great matches.

    • Tabula Rasa: We also relaunched our Minecraft server yesterday. We are now hosting Minecraft 1.0! We celebrated by pulling a God to wipe all our precious building projects out of existence. We quickly formed a new settlement though, and in a fit of selfish pride, I took a screenshot of the awesome gravity-defying bridge I made and placed it up there for all to see. Join our Minecraft server, claim some land, and help us tame the cuboid savagery of Mother Nature!

    • Vidya of our vidya: We put up some gameplay footage from a few weeks ago. You can watch the video here!

    • Requeiscat in Pace: We might be giving away a Steam copy of Assassin's Creed Revelations on December 14, 2011! All we need are three more donors to support OMGeek to activate the raffle. If you like the community, you could help us pay for the servers and the site, and get a chance to win a game!

This past week has been very good to us. Here's to more great gaming experiences for Southeast Asia!

OMGeek Battlefield 3 gameplay video

[youtube_sc url=http://youtu.be/0mIAdbc66w8] OMGeek's first gameplay video is finally here! More info after the jump.

We put together some clips from Operation Iron Promise and a handful of games before and after the event. We're still working on making our video capture routine as efficient as possible, but we like to think it's a good start. We had tons of fun discussing this video-making thing and putting everything together, and I hope you have as much fun watching it as well.
