What U.S. Giant Bombers are going to play the Beta tonight?

#1 Posted by jNerd (2178 posts) -

I'm pretty excited! I've been waiting to play this Beta since last years E3! So who else is playin the Beta tonight?

#2 Posted by Pibo47 (3234 posts) -

I think i will.

#3 Posted by Vinchenzo (6466 posts) -

I am. How can we pass up prizes?

#4 Edited by keyhunter (3209 posts) -

The Beta doesn't have real prizes.  And by that I mean, you can get prizes if you're the ONE, and you go all the way and eliminate everyone. It happened once in the Canadian Beta.

I'm definitly gonna have a look. I was a fan of the TV show.

Not me, mainly because I don't have Gold right now.

What time is it? 


Also can you go in with a party? If so send me a friend request, and we can play together.

I don't think we can play with a party bro, but good luck!

I'll be on as well with a few of some other G-bomb friends.

#11 Posted by Diamond (8678 posts) -

I will do my best to go online.  Already have experience with the Canadian beta.  Might try to get one of my real life friends involved.

There's a beta tonight?  Damn.  I'll probably be achievement whoring.

#13 Edited by RedSox8933 (2501 posts) -

I will be online. What are the freaking chances of becoming the One, though.

It's beta, so I'm not sure prizes will be given out.
#15 Posted by Vinchenzo (6466 posts) -
@EpicSteve: You may be right. I'll be playing either way.

Yeah, me to. Especially this weekend where the trivia will revolve around E3 stuff.
#17 Posted by cinemandrew (723 posts) -

I might try it. I can't really play anything else since I'll have (non-gamer) company at my house for the week.

#18 Posted by StarFoxA (5253 posts) -

I checked about 15 seconds after 10:30, and it was already full.

#19 Posted by RobtheRobot (101 posts) -

I'm pissed man i was waiting for it and still couldn't get it! Is this how it will always be? Cause if so that sucks! I guess it'll always be full since they are offering real prizes.

#20 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8663 posts) -

I didn't even know it was tonight! Nonetheless, probably a "no" for me. I still have school :(

#21 Edited by SenatorSpacer (460 posts) -

Holy shit it's tonight? What time in pacific time zone?


EDIT: Nah, nevermind I missed it.
#22 Posted by Vinchenzo (6466 posts) -

Wow it can't possibly be just 101 people. By the way it runs from 9:30 - 11:30. This better be a fucking bug.

#23 Posted by jNerd (2178 posts) -

This is ridicous! How do they expect us to get in!!!

#24 Posted by Jinto (189 posts) -

Just finished the live beta. It was incredible, I'm serious!

Just got my internet fixed in time to get one game in. Got in the mob my first time around, preeeeeeetty awesome.

#27 Posted by Diamond (8678 posts) -

Played it was fun.  Got over 100K total points so far :3

#28 Posted by datarez (689 posts) -

I played tonight.  It was pretty fun.  A little long though.  It wasn't until halfway through that I got in a group with their mics on.  The first half was a little boring because of that.  I didn't get in the mob but someone in my 4 did go up there in the last game.  Oh and they need to make the female announcer a live person.  Those canned voices got old after the first hour.

#29 Posted by SpaceInsomniac (4191 posts) -

Can you imagine trying to play World of Warcraft and being told that you can't because the game is full? Well, that's the shit I went through repeatedly as I tried to join the first game of the 1 vs 100 US beta.

Complete and total failure, Microsoft. That sucked.

#30 Posted by Yit (938 posts) -

Can anyone confirm if prizes are real?

#31 Posted by datarez (689 posts) -

Prizes were not real.  Chris was saying that at pretty much every break.  Not real while in beta he was saying.  He also mentioned that they'll probably open it up to more players in the crowd for Saturday.  There were over 50k in the crowd tonight.

Uhh...actually....that can happen. If you try to log in to WoW and the server is full, you have to wait in a queue.

Wow, really?  I just thought that would be a good example.  I've never actually played WoW.  Well, the same argument with Halo 3 then. :)

Supposedly starting Saturday they'll take away the 50k limit.

The beta was awesome. I never had a problem getting in. It's really fun to play. I can't wait for the real one.

#36 Posted by Jackel2072 (2509 posts) -

i got into the beta. and i must say, that was the most fun i have had on my 360 in a long fucking time!


P.S.
the player cap is bull shit! im sorry for every one who didn't get in. i only hope this doesn't sour your interpetation of the game. it really is all that and a bag of potato chips

I hopped in with a party of friends and had the time of my life last night. Seemed like everyone else enjoyed it as well.

I was apart of a few epic games. One of them was where mutantdog123 won the game, and another was where it was 1v1 for a little bit. By far, the craziest match was created by one simple question early on in the game: "At what point does water freeze?" Obviously, the answer is 32 degrees, and EVERYBODY slammed the answer for 32 ... Celsius. It was the first answer to appear, so nearly 60-70 people hit it, including The One. There was much screaming going on in the group, but it was hilarious to see so many people do the same thing.

Can't wait for the next one, and it'll be especially interesting when there are real prizes involved. I did pretty well last night, and would have won about 600 Microsoft points.

i completely agree with you that they need a live person to do the female voice. even if the canned one is Cortana. But yes 1 vs 100 is fucking awesome i had a blast!
