Featuring a live performance by our Admins. Admission fee is Rs. 50/-................ :max:

Ok so let's decide on the date and venue. Pitch forward ideas, everybody. Would a simple get-together suffice or should we have gaming sessions followed by dinner?

Secondly, should the meet-up be held on Saturday, the 12th or on Thursday, 10th for instance? What should the venue be and what time?

Tagging some people off the top of my head. Please tag those who have been missed @KDKHAN @StrikerX @nafu @Journeys End @CerebralTiger @The Avenger @murtaza12 @TheRaja

P.S: For an extra 50 Rs., I might also allow y'all to kiss my hand. Pindi boyzes are also invited. Transport shall be provided by the Govt. of Punjab *hint* Metro bus *hint* ;)

What an honor to be tagged in this post, I probably won't be able to make it though since I have CIEs right around the corner.

Unless the venue is in Bahria.... :D

I say it must be Saturday OR Sunday, else might be difficult for me to join you.

Not in favor of any gaming session, just get together, have a dinner and leave.

I suggest to pick some venue somewhere in Blue Area or Centaurus Mall.

Transport provided by the Punjab Govt is good enough. However, it gets closed at 10. I can reach home by foot, no issue.

Also think it should be necessarily a dinner OR a lunch can also serve the purpose.

Expected lunch / dinners expense etc ? NaNoW ke pass credit card to ho ga na ?

@UmerF meetup happening in ISB
Yeah, saw that .. gonna wait for date and venue to be decided to see if I can manage. I have a different schedule right now due to work so I probably won't be able to manage it myself, I have yet to take my iPhone to get it's camera replaced that's only 30-45min work from Blue Area, Islamabad and it's been over a week since I have been wanting to go lol. Oh well, let's see :)

We'll appreciate if people from the vicinity are also able to make it. The meetup isn't limited to Isb/Rwp members :)

We'll settle that once the venue is decided. Lunch would be fine I think. NaNoW's generosity ought to the cover the expenses anyhow ;)

I'm more inclined towards Saturday as well. Because a lot of people have family commitments on a Sunday. Most places here follow a two-day weekend anyway.

make it sunday
@Ottoman: if the meetup can be planned on Sunday, then i should be able to make it.

How about Saturday morning? You can then go to Peshawar afterwards. Just a suggestion if you're able to manage it.

That is somewhat possible but very difficult for me as I will be arriving from Faisalabad to Peshawar on Sat morning and then traveling to isl.
I cant confirm anything rite nw but let's see what is decided by the majority.

Dude what could we possibly do in Centaurus? Plus BBQ tonite has overpriced average food.
I mean anything is fine as long as it is in the route of Metro :D , but then the possible places in the route are Savor, Tehzeeb, BBQ Tonight, WangFu, Centaurus etc. I am also not in the favor of Centaurus.

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    you bought it?
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the attachment is a reprogrammable thing
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    That attachment is replacing the buttons not adding more right? Thats a start i guess
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Yeah with that really late ds4 attachment I thought for sure it meant they might be standard on ds5 but guess not
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Actually gameplay enhancing feature would be back pedal buttons... and its a shame its still not a standard on either controller
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    but, most games just ended up using it as a big map button
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    hell, the touch pad itself has 4 different zones, so if nothing it can act as 4 additional buttons which a bunch of games used for quick navigation
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    touch pad had some good uses but only a few games utilized it fully
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the light bar was a useless addition that i can agree on
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    One only adding to its bad battery life
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Light bar and touch pad was the most useless things on it
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Lets see if more than a handful titles use it because on PS4 the support is beyond terrible. Bunch a titles here or there thats it.
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    obviously most developers have to keep multi platform development in mind so not a lot of games will make full use of them
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    gyro, touch pad and haptic feedback are some nice future proofing features, but obviously its up to a developer to fully utilize them
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Its a moot point, both console dont allow switching controllers so yeah....
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    lol @ gimmicks being gameplay enhancing
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the other controller is $70 but it has the objectively better charging solution and has more game play enhancing features than its counterpart
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Wait DS4 can be used on batteries?
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the 'objectively' better solution is supported on both, however on one you have to pay up to $85 dollars on the basic controller to avail it :p
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    If DS4 had a AA variant, i wouldve bought that instead
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Oh well, one controller supports both methods so that automatically makes it objectively the better choice
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    they've had the option to keep DS4 in USB or BT mode while charging for a few years now, shouldn't really be an issue unless your group doesn't go into system settings at all
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Bad thing is you gotta sit around the console and get terrible latency in wired mode while tht happens
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    and on PS4s you can choose to have the controller stay in blue tooth mode while charging, so the latency you talked about is not an issue
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    the good thing is you can still play while charging :p
    Link
    Necrokiller Necrokiller: you bought it?
