Do you like the visceral drama of a modern military setting? Do you like hearing soldiers shout and curse in multiple languages? Perhaps most importantly, do you like pretending to shoot guys in the face? Then tonight's the night, as we'll be playing some Battlefield: Bad Company 2 from 4PM to 6PM Pacific Daylight Time on this week's Thursday Night Throwdown!
  
If you want to get in on some of the Conquest, Rush, Squad Rush, and maybe even a little Onslaught action tonight, you can send us a friend request to GBTNT on the Xbox 360, or just join us on our dedicated BC2 server on the PC, which you can find on the in-game server browser as "Giant Bomb/Tested Slamma Jamma Super Happy Fun Time." If you'd rather just kick back and relax, you can watch the live video stream below or chat it up on Giant Bomb's official Justin.tv channel, which we'll be pulling questions from during the broadcast.  
 
UPDATE: Show's over folks! Thanks to everyone who suffered from my helicopter piloting. If you missed it live, you can watch the archived version below.

The reason why they can't do PS3 is because... hhmmm... I really don't know. Why can't they do PS3?

yay pc!

Posted by IamTerics

What? No PS3? This is the only popular shooter that I'm good at.

Edited by Elbon

you know I was really looking foward to this TNT as it was the first time that I had the game for it, but no PS3 makes me sad

Posted by Silence

Excellent! Shame my Gamertag has been stolen for the 3rd time in 3 months. :( I'd love to play with you guys.

Posted by Scrawnto
@ch13696: Of course it will. 
 
Seriously though, I wonder if they will be able to empty out the server to get a new batch of players.    
Posted by Yahto

I haven't even played it since near release... How about a BF2 TNT?

no ps3 ftl.

Posted by skunk

wtf is this crap, no PS3? I was so excited for this whole TNT idea, but now i'm not even sure I want to even watch it anymore.

Posted by crusader8463

Holy shit! They are going to do a PC version over a console? I think I woke up in bizzaro land!

Posted by AlisterCat
@skunk:  The platform should only effect whether or not you can play with them... why would it prevent you from watching it?
Posted by Jangowuzhere

PC?? sweeet:)

Wait... what? You don't want to watch because they aren't playing this game on PS3? Or are you upset that you aren't going to be able to participate because you *have* this game for the PS3.  
 
The latter makes infinitely more sense than the former.
Posted by RYNO9881

The one time I have the game for TNT and they're not doing ps3. go figure :(

Posted by DieRunning

I've been considering purchasing BFBC2, this may just put me over the edge.

Posted by Teptom

I don't own this game at all.

It will be interesting to see is how many people are on the queue at the same time.

I really hope that Giantbomb members are a bit better at teamplay than most of the other players. I am really sick of 50% recon teams!

Posted by Sogeman

Hope I get a chance to play...and not Onslaught since I don't have that ^^

Posted by ethreet

Your 360 Friends List is Full, you can't send friend requests to it.

Posted by Jams

Usually I can't play TNT because I have most games on PC. The last couple of TNT's have been great :). Can't wait to try to get into this one. 
 
I'd like to ask everyone if they do get in, to only get in once and try not to keep getting in so everyone else can have a chance. It's only fair that way.

Posted by TorgoGrooves89

Awesome. Can't wait for this. TNT is one of my favourite parts of Giant Bomb and BC2 is one of my favourite multiplayer games right now.

I should've clarified earlier but yes, I have BC2 for PS3. If I can't play with the GB crew then I'm not going to sit around for 2 hours watching a high profile FPS. If they were playing something I hadn't played or was more interesting to watch then sure, I'd watch it, but sitting and watching BC2/MW2 is just not my cup of tea.

NO I HAVE THE PS3 COPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAMN 

Posted by doejonathan

I've read somewhere that in 2035 the world will be all out of Thursdays. But until then there will be plenty of opportunities for owners of various platforms to participate in these events. There will be cross-platform games as well as exclusives, deal with it. If this is what makes life unfair to you, well... you have my sympathy. 

Posted by BadSniper52

My BC2 would disappear, damnit.

Oooo, this should be good.
