Keepin' The Cogs Turning

The Bombing Run is back after its week-long vacation to The Wasteland, and now, with a vengeance. With all the holiday games rolling out, the variety in good multiplayer games is growing and that shows with this week's game, Gears of War 2. We'll be playing this game on Saturday November 8, the day after the game releases so people can have a little more time to go purchase or rent their copy. If you want to get in on the action, send an Xbox Live friend request to me, systech217 and the alternate host, TokyoChicken, in case something bad happens to me, like getting polio or if the Brady Bunch is on. We most likely won't leave you behind as long as there is enough room in the party (10 slots to be precise) so I will make this thing a "first come, first serve deal," but don't worry, the Bombing Run hasn't gotten to mega-popularity status... yet.

EDIT 2: albedos_shadow is the other host for the Bombing Run. We're going to split it up in half and half so if my party is full, go join him.

Game: Gears of War 2
Date: Saturday November 8
Time: 8:30PM EST (5:30 PST)

Not sure if I will specifically sign up, because who on my friend's list won't have GoW2. If you need another player, send me a message though. I realize you want me to send a friend request to your accounts respectively, but just throwing my name out there.

You're damn right you do! :P

Well I guess there's only so many times we can play GTA 4 and CoD 4 on the Bombing Runs. :P

Dude, I put Pacific Time in parentheses. I live in California, also, it just seems that more people live on the East Coast.

#21 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

I might be getting this Friday, so I might be in.

#22 Edited by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

Too many great games, too little time, and way too bad of an economy to buy every game I want this year. If I had all the time in the world and the economy wasn't on the brink of collapse, I would get:

-Dead Space

-Gears of War 2

-Left 4 Dead.

Unfortunately, I can't right now. But at least I'll playing my higher priority games.

:(

Maybe I'll get Gears 2 for the b-day. February 28th isn't that far from Christmas...

#23 Posted by Shasam (468 posts) -

I would definitely be up for it, if it wasn't for my Euro-ness. Oh well, if I'm awake and lag isn't as much of a problem with the first one maybe I could join up. Who knows, I might get Gears fever again and not be able to sleep.

Gamertag: Nizumal.
If people could add me, that would be great, as I normally forget these things.

Why the fuck did I even sign up? I just realized that the odds of me getting my Xbox 360 back from Microsoft before friday are slim to zero.

*goes to cry in corner*

#34 Edited by Gorillawhat (1259 posts) -

AAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??!?!?!?!??!?!??!?!?@!?@?##89
*takes a loong deeep breeaath*

Xbox.com, after it's big update, is now telling me I have no 360 in for repair, which is a lie. After searching their forums, it appears that alot of people are experiencing this problem, which is understandable. Which is not understandable is the fact that I just received an email notifying me that my service request has only JUST gone through, and that they still haven't received my Xbox which I sent out on the 25th!

This is Bullshit!  UPS is supposed to be reliable.

Bumpage from My rumpage...also, I am going to have to game tomorrow now so you can put me on that list. I'll probably suck it up since I haven't played Gears in a long time and was never much of Gears MP fan.

#40 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

I want to secure a spot, so add me to the "definitely" list. It is getting pretty full, and I want to play with the community.

#41 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Would there be several groups going on or what? (Maybe one doing Horde mode, for instance).

I am assuming that as of right now there is going to be two parties of 5 playing against each other, but it would be nice to see some Horde action as well.

What are the chances of all of us getting into the same match?

...oh, Player Match. My bad.
