Yes that's right, the second annual 24-hour gaming livestream is back!
Join a few friends and I for a second round of gaming madness for a whole 24 hours. We'll be playing a variety of new games such as Halo 4, Assassin's Creed III, Dishonoured, Black Ops 2 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted as well other games and retro games.
We'll also be playing some multiplayer games for you to join in, answering your (usually insulting) questions, doing prank calls and giving out prizes too!
For the livestream the Minecart Rapid Transit server will be home to our 24-hour collaborative Minecraft building project. During the livestream we will be on the server to help build something big for the length of the livestream.
Server IP Address: minecartrapidtransit.net
During the 24 hours we will be building a "British style" town. To get to the building location follow the orange wool at Spawn to a warp booth. If you are a guest on the server press the button there to get permissions and you're free to build. Here are some more details, courtesy of server admin Chiefbozx:
This server is still using Minecraft version 1.3.2 since Craftbukkit and the plugins it uses have not updated yet. If you want to play on the server you will need a 1.3.2 jar file which you can download from assets.minecraft.net/1_3_2/minecraft.jar
The server is also greylisted meaning you will have to apply to get building permissions, for the livestream there will be temporary building permissions set up for non-members. Head over to minecartrapidtransit.net for more information on the server and how to apply for membership.
Last year I invited a few friends (Calum, Euan, Andrew, Daniel, Brett and Stefan) to help me host a 24-hour gaming livestream in aid of the charity: Child's Play. We had a lot of fun doing it and as a result I'm doing it again this year.
The first livestream is still available to watch on YouTube, it will give you a taste of what is to come (hopefully without all the technical problems this time):
