The Thoughtshake Battles: A Weekly Way to Wage War

The Thoughtshake Battles have been going on for 2 weeks now, both times in Left 4 Dead Versus. However, as the site grows and more people fancy playing a game with other people in the Steam Group, we’ve come to find the 8 player limit that comes with Left 4 Dead a bit… well, limiting. As a result, from now on the game we will play each week with change. Now, you might think that this presents a problem for people who don’t have the game. Luckily, we have a solution. Instead of fully fledged retail games, we’re going to be playing a different Source mod each week.

This means that as long as you have Half-life 2 (and sometimes its’ episodes as well), you can download a new mod each week for no charge, and give it a run through with the Thoughtshake group. The first mod will be Jailbreak! Source, a great mod from a talented team which has of late been slightly slower in terms of its’ community. So this Sunday, probably around 8pm (but join the Steam Group in order to get the exact timing), we’ll be going into the game and having a bit of fun. As far as I can tell, the mod only requires Half-Life 2 to run, but don’t hold me to that. You can download the mod for free, as well as find out a bit more about how the game plays, at the official site. Make sure you patch it to 0.41 before the match, as that’s the version we’ll be running. Otherwise, see you then!
