Hey guys, just confirming that I'll be hosting due to Systech's unsure game-received status. Also- we'll be doing custom matches, so we have room for up to 16 dudes (which I can host, very well). If you have any custom map you've downloaded or created that you think would be great to test or play, feel free to shoot me a PM here or on XBL (gamertag is in Systech's post). Include the name of the map, and I'll search for it and download it. See you on Friday >.>

I should be able to make this...I think I may try to create a map before the night too.

I have a feeling you might not get enough dudes, I'd suggest if you don't get enough by like Friday, pushing it back a day. Sucks, because I might have it Saturday.

That's what I think will likely happen too...I'm not sure if there will be enough people with the game by Friday. I just got it tonight and would rather give it an extra week to become more familiar with the game. A Saints Row 2 BR could be a good idea, but I don't know how many people have that game either...

I don't know, maybe stick with a game that many are familiar with or just give it people an extra day or two...I mean, if I get the game Saturday (from GameFly), I will probably go straight to the map editor and fiddle around with it for a few hours.

I would love to play....but late Friday might not be as easy as Saturday which I would be all over! Especially since I get it Friday, talk about a learning curve.... ;)

I'll go ask Systech to change it to Saturday. Sounds like the better day for everyone.

I'm sure people are sick of COD by now, but I would be interested in going back and trying out COD2 again. Sort of like a retrospective on how COD has changed from COD2 ...or maybe GRAW. Actually, I think a Burnout Paradise BR would be awesome! I love that game and that would be something different than just another shooter.

I was definitely not referring to COD4, of all games. But if it gets changed to Saturday, this might attract a few more people, hope my game comes Saturday.
