"The Bomb Squad" Giant Bomb Community Clan (PS3)

#1 Edited by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -
AKA "Duder Company" or "Giant Bomb Squad"
Alright gents, JohnAsscream has selected me to be the head of the PS3 wing of Giant Bomb's community clan. All information regarding bombing runs in the future and membership will now be in this thread. The Clan Tag will be [GBS] (Giant Bomb Squad), so if you haven't put it in you may want to do that. Headsets are optional, but if you own a pair, feel free to use them.
 
First order of business is to decide which of the three mentioned names will be our official name; they are "Duder Company", "Giant Bomb Squad" or simply "The Bomb Squad".
Post which name you want and it will be decided by majority rules. (Note this has no bearing in-game it is simply to decide how we should refer to ourselves on the forums)
 

Attention: Bombing Runs are set for every Saturday at 8:30pm EDT

The tentative dates are Saturdays at 8:30pm EDT. I will try to set up a private match, if the game is full you can play with others "locked out" as squads in the public games. The bombing run will go on for as long as people want it to go on. If you are late and there are still spots available select me in the friends menu and join match, if there are spots there you should be able to join. If you are planning on joining in the bombing run, please post saying so. Check back here for any updates.
 

Here is a list of all members post your PSN I'll add you to the list. It is important that everyone add me (PSN: FrankCanada97) to their friends list as it would be easier for me to organize and prepare bombing runs. Add each other to your PSN friends list, when you do that say you're from Giant Bomb.

Very businesslike. Do we also have club meetings?  
 
But seriously, my PSN ID is axolotl950 - please add it.

I always figured bomb squad was simple enough.

#4 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -
@bonbolapti: Would that be with or without "The"?
#5 Posted by DuderBattalion (269 posts) -

Bomb squad suits me fine .. with or without "the"

I still like "Duder Company" but thats what I get for putting Frank in charge! JK, He can do what ever the hell he wants as long as I dont have to sit and enter psn id's forever!

PSN is DIEOMARQ 
im fine whith bomb squad

#8 Posted by bonbolapti (1599 posts) -

I think having a "the" there is unavoidable. but I think when speaking people will just say bomb squad anyway.. It's just how it sounds.
@JohnAsscream: Duder company is all well and fine, but Bomb squad is the first thing that comes to mind. But Majority rules right?

Quick question for PS3 users: How many characters are available to put in the clan tag space? On PC it's eight, which makes GBSquad fit with one remaining character.

#10 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -
@MrKlorox: 3 Characters long, hence GBS.

I want to know who is planning on being at the bombing run this Friday.

#17 Posted by gyunyu (2 posts) -

Im in for sure. Im just not sure about what time i will be on though. 

#18 Posted by Marz (5646 posts) -

Nothing going on like this for PC players?

#19 Posted by Lowbrow (840 posts) -
@Marz: There are three sticky threads - one for PS3, 360 and PC. Check that thread.
 
Also, I need to give a shotout to SilentCommando. We played a few rounds together last night, not even using our Mics and we cleaned the fuck up! Hooray for tanks!
#20 Posted by SilentCommando (579 posts) -

I like Duder Company the best.

#26 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

#28 Posted by nimbo321 (3 posts) -
@FrankCanada97:

#32 Posted by Nasar7 (2609 posts) -

I won't make it tonight but I might be able to join late. gl

#33 Posted by aylien (111 posts) -

Should be able to join, though probably only til 6 or so PST.
oh yeah, and 1 vote for Bomb Squad

#34 Posted by Nasar7 (2609 posts) -

I thought "The Bomb Squad" was already decided?
 
If not, I still prefer Duder Company. It's in line with the spirit of the game.

#36 Posted by NinjaHunter (972 posts) -

I like Duder Company. Bomb Squad is a little generic and Duder Company is a good reference to the site.

#37 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

Just under two hours until this kicks off right?

#38 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -
@Hamz: One hour actually, you gonna be there?
#39 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -
@FrankCanada97: I shall do my best to not only be there but to stay awake and get some games in ;)
 
Figured I'd ask as my ability to calculate timezone differences is pretty poor :P
#40 Posted by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -
@Hamz: Hopefully I don't mess up the private match creation.
#41 Posted by Truant19 (197 posts) -

my psn is Truant19
 
ill try to be there tonight

#42 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

It has started, waiting on more folks to join in :)

#43 Posted by aTeddyBear (18 posts) -

I HATE aFRICA HARBOR

#44 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

Almost 4:30am here so I'm calling it a night, the war can continue tomorrow!....although I may be stroking my Lombax, we'll see.
 
Big thanks to FrankCanada97 for organising this evening's gaming entertainment and a kudos for being (I think) the first Giant Bomb user to kill me in BFBC2!....be proud :P
 
Also it was great to see such a turn out, half expected two or three people to show, but there was far more people than that and I had a blast. Hopefully we can do it again sometime :)

#45 Posted by DuderBattalion (269 posts) -

Good games people .. I sadly joined late, but got in around 2 rounds of play. We should do this again ! 
 
@Hamz: Also hamz .. are you the Houdini guy !! you mother fucker :P I think I was first killed by you .. !! Was on Frank's squad ;)

#46 Posted by bonbolapti (1599 posts) -

yeah it was fun, frankly I need to be encouraged to play games online more :P

 The Bomb Squad

#48 Posted by Mmmslash (2166 posts) -

Myself and Snipzorz are looking for a couple of players that we can play with regularly in our squad. We play 3 or 4 nights a week, for a two or three hours.
 
He's a recon (He uses a shotgun and mortar strike, so he's actually useful). I switch off between Medic and Engineer. We're preferably looking for a Medic and an Assault, to really round us out. Anyone who is interested should toss me a PM.
 
We're both really casual about it, no rage-nauting or anything, just looking for a couple guys to join our usual 2-man squad.

#49 Posted by DuderBattalion (269 posts) -
@Mmmslash: I generally play Assault, but 1. I just started .. so don't have a bunch of stuff unlocked and 2. I'm pretty tied up with work .. so I only get an hour or so .. every few days in a week. But send me a friend request. I'd be happy to join you if I see you online sometimes. PSN: Venom2112

I bummed out that I missed this but if there is a next time add me my PSN ID: DARKKNIGHT1227
