Thursday Night Throwdown 08/19: Monday Night Combat

Well is it Thursday or Monday? Make up your damn mind already!

Thursday Night Throwdown gets dissonant this week with Monday Night Combat, the recent surprise Xbox Live Arcade hit that has been lazily--and fairly accurately--described as a mashup of Defense of the Ancients and Team Fortress 2. Apparently we picked the right game this week, as our friends list has been full up since Monday! If you didn't make the cut, our condolences, though you can still watch as we buy turrets, gun down annoying mascots, and show you the moneyball on our live video stream! If you'd like to crack wise with other like-minded Giant Bomb users, feel free to hop on over to the Official Giant Bomb Justin.tv Channel.
 
UPDATE:  Thursday's Monday Night is over! Thanks to everyone who watched and played, and if you missed it, peep the archived version below.

I like the looks of this game, but I'm just not sure I'll be able to put down TF2 long enough to really give it a fair shake.

I got on the friends list but my gold decided to run out yesterday so I most likely won't be able to join you guys. I'll still tune in though!

Gentlemen!
 
I'm on the friends list, I think, for this game, but this is my first TNT, so I'm not sure how it all works.  Anyone care to explain for me?  One thousand thanks.

Watch the livestream, and they will end up inviting you to a few matches.
 
 
 
Cant wait to bust a cap in Ryan, or whoever will be playing.

I'm on the list, I can't wait! I want to mow down the Bomb crew in hail of bullets. Virtual bullets, that is.

I actually managed to get on the list.  Can't wait to get in on the action! 
I'll probably jump on the game in about a half-hour just to get into my rhythm (no... I'm not any good at the game, but I'd still like to do relatively well!)

Demoman is pissed that Giant Bomb stole the thunder from his own Thursday TNT Nights.

I'm not a huge fan of TF2 (don't get me wrong, it's good fun, but it doesn't quite click with me), so I've kept away from MNC - this may sway my mind one way or the other.

I managed to sneak into the friends list at the last minute because a few people dropped out. I think I'm going to enjoy this TNT.
