hmmm...no typos this time. spelling is no longer a threat.

#3 Edited by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Great thread, love the spelling. :D

Edit:

I liked the other one better, t'was full of DualReaver luv.
Oh, I'm such a narcissistic asshole.

Edit:

I want to give a shout out to MB, for helping us get this thread going. Appreciate it.

Great. Everything's spelled right this time. No stray u's about the place. And you added IRC instructions like I suggested. Now the thread is perfection.

And we're ready. This can work well if we're all willing to work together, guys. Let's do this and make a thriving community, one which we can all enjoy.

Also, getting the staff on BSHAF would be awesome. Someone blackmail them into it.

Now I have to repost, dammit. For next week's Bombing Run, I believe that we will be playing Gears of War or GTA4 if there is more than 8 players that want to participate. We should probably get that organized. There could be a Bombing Run for the PS3 version as well as the 360 version of GTA and I'm assuming that BR also got a lot of attention after the beautifully wrote manifesto, so Gears might be out of the question.

is this getting stickied?

#11 Posted by Gizmo (5389 posts) -

Great idea, this is exactly what GB needs. 

#12 Posted by ZeroCast (1869 posts) -

Thanks to everyone who contributed in this.

#13 Posted by MattyFTM (14348 posts) -

Oh, and one other little suggestion from me. Shouldn't we think of a cool name for the giant bomb IRC? I mean, everything else has a cool name, "The community is still a threat", "Bombing run", "Bomb Should Have a Face", and "Lets play", yet the GB IRC is just called "Giant Bomb IRC".

Couldn't someone come up with a cool name for it like "Bomb should have a Chat" or "The Chat is still a threat" or "Chatting run". (OK, I suck at name suggestions, but someone must be able to come up with something).

And also, does anyone else find it ironic that I keep suggesting things to do with the IRC, but I've never actually used the GB IRC? I'm Weird.

lol at least your haelping out MattyFTM. I think its an idea worth pondering.

#15 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

GiantBomb IRC name could be: DualReaver without an edit button. :P

#16 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

Maybe something about it's continuity, how its forever flowing, help me out I'm not a wiz at names.

It is now! :D
#18 Posted by MB (12053 posts) -

It already was stickied, in General.  To have it show up as a sticky in the Latest Threads feed, it has to be pinned to all boards.  This is going to be sort of subject to change over time as the makeup of sticky threads on the different boards fluxuates.

Guys if you want to host something pm me and matt about it just so we dont clutter the forumns with that

#22 Posted by dankempster (2249 posts) -

Excellent. No longer shall we have to worry about important community threads vanishing beneath the unfathomable depths of the Off Topic forum :D.

Kudos to everybody who's made this possible. I shan't list names, because you know who you are (read as: "because I am lazy :P."). I hope this helps stuff like the IRC and Let's Play to really take off amongst the site's users.

Okay, we should probably have that as a future noticed in the original post so things are clear.

I'll talk about more platforms when I make the Bombing Run post on Monday. Ideally, we want to get PS3 games and Wii games in the mix, as well as  (if we can) multiple games across the same platform and a decent play time for European/UK players. It's all gonna depend on the community stepping up!

Is there any chance that there could be more than one bombing run? i had fun in the last one, but  friday won't work for me from now on.

Maybe we could move the GTA one on Saturday and have the Gears one on Friday.

bombing run 24/7

#31 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

Well I'm here for any assistance in setting up a GMT Bombing Run. However in 2 weeks University may take over my life.

#32 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

Okay, it's official. GTA4 on Saturday.

#33 Posted by Karmum (11517 posts) -
#34 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

Ok, lets try getting a PS3 one going at the same time, I live in the UK, but hey these things are fun.

#35 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Have we decided on who's hosting Gears of War?
I am up for it, if no one else is in line.

If you guys need a host, I'm all for it.
#37 Posted by HistoryInRust (6275 posts) -

Someone who is willing to remove Rooftops from the map rotation ought to be host.

Well, if I'm going to be hosting it, Rooftops is definitely not being in the rotation, terrible map, Hammer of Dawn central.
#39 Posted by HistoryInRust (6275 posts) -

Haha.  I mean, I don't care about winning or losing, but that map is just atrocious.

#40 Posted by Karmum (11517 posts) -

Alright well, my question is: Is everybody up for me hosting Gears Friday? I just want to make sure I can, I always like to know if I have confirmation.

#41 Posted by Thrawn1 (1340 posts) -

i think you would need approval from mattbodega? not sure though,

#42 Posted by DualReaver (3882 posts) -

Well you have my vote. :)

Ok, sorry to diverge a little here, but in 2 weeks I am off to Uni and will be taking my laptop, which is a Macbook Pro. Is there a way to access the IRC on Mac OS, perhaps download Firefox then Chatzilla? I'm not sure. Haven't been on IRC anyway as my PC has hardware failures that I haven't fixed yet. Just chucking this post out there in case anyone has ay pearls of wisdom for me.

A good IRC client for Macs is Colloquy.
