Thursday Night Throwdown 09/16: Halo: Reach

Get Noble with Giant Bomb on this week's community game night!

After being preempted by the Whiskey Media Big Live Live Show, Live! last week, Thursday Night Throwdown returns with the thunderous crack of a Brute's gravity hammer with none other than Halo: Reach! I don't know how familiar you dudes are with video games, but it's my understanding that the Halo series is pretty well-known for its multiplayer, and Halo: Reach may just feature the most robust multiplayer in a Halo game yet, something we'll try and take full advantage of starting at 4PM Pacific Daylight Time this Thursday!
 
If you want to get in on the action, simply send a friend request to GBTNT on Xbox Live. Also, as select members of the Giant Bomb community are already aware, we've been crowdsourcing our TNT promos, which is another way of saying that we make you do the work! If you want to get in on the Photoshop phun, check out this thread to find out how you can contribute. Please make sure to read the first post in the thread for guidelines.
 
Otherwise, be sure to join us, and all of your friends in the chat, this Thursday at 4PM Pacific Daylight Time for your next Thursday Night Throwdown!

I can't wait! hopefully i complete the campaign on wednesday when i get the game, then i'll bring the multiplayer heat for thursday's TNT!

Posted by McDunkin

Friends list is already full?  Maybe wait until Thursday morning to take the invites?

Posted by Fjordson

Friends list is already full. How shitty.

Posted by Inf225

TNT makes me sad, I work during those hours. But should be fun to watch!

Posted by LiquidPrince

Cool.

Posted by Fjordson
@Ryan: Have you guys cleared out the list from the last TNT? Or has it just filled up really fast?
Posted by ez123

Oh, I tried again and now it says friend request pending. Hope that means I'm in.

Posted by HistoryInRust

I won't be playing, but I'll see y'all muh-fukahz in the chat!

Posted by Ryan

it just filled up stupid, ridiculous, crazy fast. Sorry guys!

Depressing.

Tune in a listen to Giantbomb bash Halo for 2 hours! 

Posted by Tonic7

Well that was fast, ha. Oh well.

Edited by Milkman

This may be the first TNT I actually participate in.

TNT makes me wish I didnt have to pay to play Xbox Live titles.

Damnit, I just realized that I have class on Thursdays now... although I'll only miss 30 minutes to an hour of the TNT's, so I'll get some of it.

Posted by Fjordson

Do they ever accept new requests if people don't show up on Thursday? 
 
Been looking forward to this, and already have my copy of Reach, but it filled up super quick.

Edited by ThePhantomnaut

I got accepted.

Well if someone removes themselves from the list then yes but not during the TNT. I really hate people playing a different game during TNT. They discourage so many.
Posted by Fjordson
@ThePhantomnaut:  Yeah, I guess it wouldn't make sense to do that on Thursday. Ah well, I'll be watching the live stream at least.

I'm looking forward to seeing this on Thursday.

I donno... seems like the prime time of year for people to be dishin' out some Lair of the Shadow Broker spoilers and what-not in the chat. Then again, every chat session has those people. 
 
I'll be watching... maybe.
Posted by Green_Incarnate

I missed the Halo beta TNT, so I'm glad I got in this one.

Posted by GirnBlanston

I'd sign up, but my copy won't get here in time.
Posted by MaxReboh

I think i will join the  Thursday Night Throwdown!this week.

Posted by TheBeast

Awesome, this will be my first TNT hopefully!
Anyone know what I do if it turns out I can't make it?

Posted by Hamz
@TheBeast: If you're not able to actually participate within the hours the TNT runs for. Just remove yourself from the TNT friends list (assuming they accepted you) so they don't waste an invitation on you and that there's the possibility of a free slot on the list for someone else. It's the gentlemanly thing to do!

Could you perhaps then thin it out and send invites while it happens? because its an 360 exclusive, and the guys who got accepted are given double of the normal amount of time to play.
Posted by MrMuscle

This is the first TNT that makes me wish i lived in the US and the same timezone.
Posted by Jackel2072

damnation! 

Edited by G24S

Wtf.  Yesterday my friend request was pending, but now it's gone from the list. :(

Posted by CitizenKane

Oh well, didn't appear to make the friends list.  Will still have a fun time watching all of the carnage!

Posted by Vager

I'm not going to make it today. So i removed myself. 
There is now 1 slot open!

Or... this community could help each other by removing themselves after they've played.
 
Yeah. Like that would ever happen :(
Posted by Capum15

I really wish I didn't have classes today, then I could've totally sent a request and played, or at least watched it live...ah well, I'll just watch the Archive.

Posted by alternate

So who is playing for the home team?  Guessing Brad or Drew.  I would have guessed Jeff but his twitter suggests he is flying off somewhere (unless he is flying back from somewhere?).

Posted by MayorFeedback
@sofacitysweetheart: I made it in, but once I've played a round, I'll totally jump ship if it'll get someone new in.
Posted by EightBitShik

Damn! I wanted to play!! :( :( :(

gamertag = old Scotty Gun.  I'm down for firefight, invasion or whatever.  Bring it on!
