#Polynauts Multiplayer Weekend: Halo: Reach and PAYDAY: The Heist

Hey, guys, tonight (and hopefully all this weekend), we'll be playing Payday: The Heist over Steam. For those of you not familiar with Payday, it's like Left 4 Dead, but far more enjoyable. One of the heists, for instance, involves putting a guy in a chair with a balloon attached to it and having an airplane yank him from the top of a construction site.

Currently, it's $5 on Amazon, or $15 for a multiplayer pack. The codes activate on Steam, where you can download the game. If you're not in the US and can't take advantage of the deal, then you can pick up Payday on the Steam sale (it's $10 USD here, not sure what else elsewhere). If any of you would prefer to get it through Amazon (TODAY ONLY), but need an intermediary, I'd welcome a Steam gift (dependent on the offering--you can see my Wishlist on Steam; I would want something of equivalent dollar value) or two in trade.

If you want to get in some games, then join our IRC chan, #Polynauts, on IRCHighway. If you don't know how to do it, we've got instructions here.

As always, if you want to play with me, my Steam name is DocSeuss.


Also, Check out the Halogon thread for plans for the Halogon community game night! We'll be playing Halo: Reach (if I have this wrong, punch me in the face and I will change things).


Lastly, let us know here or in the IRC what games you want to play next weekend!
