Steam Sunday Week 2!

What is Steam Sunday?

Steam Sunday is a weekly event that ventures outside the realm of Minecraft, and into the wonderful world of Steam Games. Featuring several multiplayer experiences, we take the opportunity to play various in both competitive and co-operative playstyles. The idea was initially brought up by none other than Face, and through weeks of planning, debating, and logo-creationing (Yes, that's a word), Steam Sunday was surfaced as another Evernethian event. Current games in the roster include Age of Empires II, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Don't Starve: Together, Terraria, and Tabletop Simulator; but of course this list is capable of expansion at any time!

How Do I Participate?

Well, the first (hopefully obvious) step would be to have a Steam account. You'll also need to be friends with one or several people who are likely to partake in the games often. The easiest way to do this would be to friend me (link here!), and then I can add you to the Everneth Steam Group! Likely the most tragic part of this whole tale, is that you will of course need to have the steam games that we will be playing. Not all of them, of course, but you'll want at least one or two. Luckily, Steam is a platform that often puts games on sale for great deals, often following the changing of seasons.

You may also be fortunate enough to grab an extra copy from someone else. It's no guarantee that someone will have one, but if they do they might just be willing to hand it over to the first comer. On a final note, please join the Steam Sunday Discord to keep up-to-date on all weekly events.

When Are These Games Scheduled For?

Every Sunday night we would be looking to start playing by early afternoon or evening, so roughly 4pm-6pm EST. It's likely you'll be able to join late or leave and come back later if we are still playing, so don't feel bad for not being there for the full duration or not being there at the start (Age of Empires II may be the exception to this, as the games are longer and it lacks a late-join feature).

We hope to begin this week, the first edition of Steam Sunday being held Sunday, May 28th. It'd be great if we could get some feedback from anyone interested as to which game we should play first; vote in the poll (please don't vote if you have no plans on even attempting to participate, much appreciated :) ).

What is New This Week?

It was decided last week, that we would sort the games in the roster into two lists: games that could only be played once before taken off the next week's poll, and those that could be played several weeks in a row. The games were sorted into these lists by their session length and game playability, mostly to prevent exclusion of some members of the Steam Sunday group, and to avoid monotonous gameplay. For example, Age of Empires II only requires a single game to be played, and there is no necessary continuation the week after, so it has been removed from this week's poll. It will appear again in next week's, however! The current lists are as follows:

Replayable Games:

  • Don't Starve: Together
  • Terraria

'One and Done' Games:

  • Age of Empires II
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Tabletop Simulator

Wrap-Up

Hopefully these changes should help to keep a variety going, please go vote on which game you believe should be played this week! And feel free to offer any new games to the rotation at any time; and remember to mark your calendars (but that's not necessary because I already did it for you)!

Stay Frosty. B|
