It’s that time again! We’re having another hangout, and we’ll be playing… Well, I haven’t actually figured that part out yet. Maybe some Civilization 5, maybe some Hitmans, maybe something else entirely. Who knows?
We’ll be mixing it up a bit this time; we’ve switched streaming services to the much more popular and, as it turns out, far better (bet you didn’t see that coming) Twitch.tv. You can find the new stream Here, Here, or There.
The stream starts at 4:30 PM Pacific, which works out to 7:30 Eastern, and 12:30 AM in Britain. See you there!
Edit: Thanks everyone for showing up, we had some great fun assassinating cars and then crashing planes into them. Which… makes much more sense in context. If you missed it, the whole stream is available in several parts in the video section of the stream page.
