I've noticed a lot of conversations in just about every forum I belong in referring to the "good old days" and I have a hard time understanding. I mean, I was around then too, I was a kid, but I remember them.

Sure, Descent 3 doesn't have official support anymore, but does it need that? Sure! Players have left the scene entirely, some unfortunately never to return for one reason or the next. But... Can't we get new ones?

I've also noticed a trend in the video game scene, at least in the country I live, where people are looking for that classic feeling game. And a lot of the people I've shown Descent 3 are interested in it. Why not introduce Descent to a new audience? But more to the point: There's enough of us still around to run weekend games. Why don't we?

There's a lot of servers that are largely inactive. "Oh they're active sometimes."

When? I've been watching for 3 weeks and nothing but BOZ and the occasional player or two. Nothing to actual scale fights I remember from all those years ago, or even just 10 years ago when there seemed to be a CTF in Veins every weekend.

I wanna boot up weekend games again. Who's with me?

The thing is, you can't really find (multiplayer) games out-of-the-box anymore, if it runs on current Windows (like five generations after the original release) at all.

There is a real good alternativ to Descent, it's called OVERLOAD and there are a few of the old Descenters (1,2,3). Most games are in the evening hours, so come and look.
Some gamers stream on twitch, so you can look...
