We now have an official Ballistic Overkill server

Joining the ranks today is a new official GOL game server for Ballistic Overkill, my favourite indie FPS right now.

No need for an IP, just look for GamingOnLinux in the server list!

I will probably hop on it tonight during the livestream to give it a proper whirl!

Enjoy!

Nice!

I am going to have to look into this game now. With this server and Ark is there a community voice chat server like Mumble or anything similar?

We have discord: https://discord.gg/0rxBtcSOonvGzXr4
And Mumble: mumble.gamingonlinux.com

I'm generally not on the mumble, that's just there if the community need it.

This site is the only reason I bought the game. Ballistic is the closest thing we have to the major multiplayer shooters.

I'm curious what you think of CounterStrike: GO and TF2 then. CounterStrike was the major multiplayer shooter when I was younger, and although TF2 is more of a hat simulator these days, I hear it still has shooter and multiplayer elements.

I've been considering to get this game. It looks pretty fun.

"major multiplayer shooters" being code for Call of Duty. Sorry, but I consider Counter Strike to be in a different class entirely.

EDIT: To elaborate, CoD is basically the Mario Kart of FPS in that it levels the playing field with all sorts of BS perks and drops and killstreaks whereas Counter Strike essentially has no skill ceiling.

Fair enough. I've never played Call of Duty, so I have no idea how it plays.
