Yesterday I asked you guys which 360 shooter was your favorite to play online. Halo Reach won, with Gears of War 3 about twelve whole percent behind it.
So, I say we all gather 'round a game of Halo Reach come this Saturday at 5:00 PM (US Eastern)! Use this to find out what this is in your own timezone.
To get into the game:
- Send a friend request to the gamertag GiantBomb360. I'm not using my own gamertag because with this, there will be a list of everyone in one easy to find, easy to locate spot, so that anyone can more easily gather a game of something and we can use it at later dates if we play other games.
- After sending that friend request, wait until Saturday and at the appointed time, pop in your Halo Reach disc. The gamertag Believer258 (myself) will invite you to a game of Reach. Join that and that's all! It will be a private match, not matchmaking. If you are not playing Halo Reach, then I can only assume that you don't want to participate and I will not invite you.
- Unfortunately, there's only a sixteen player limit. If the game is full, then chances are that someone will have to quit soon enough (i.e. attend to other business, I'm not going to ask someone to leave). Leave the disc in, play campaign or matchmaking, and when someone leaves, I'll invite someone else to the game. Please don't bring guests - this fills up the game quicker and less Giantbombers get in. This is meant for us to play games together.
- The only thing you need to bring is a good attitude. Foul language isn't an issue, and a bit of celebrating after a great win isn't either, but don't be an ass. Also, I'm recommending but not requiring a mic.
If this is successful, then we can play something else the next weekend and possibly get a whole thing running. Also remember that this gamertag isn't just for me - if you want to organize a different game, then you're definitely welcome to do so. I'll check the gamertag for friend requests often enough.
If you have any questions, quote this post and I will answer it to the best of my ability in this thread.
If you're joining, leave a post on this thread. If you don't, it will die with only a few people knowing anything about it.
Finally, this is the last time I'm trying this. If no one joins, then this will have been a useless idea all along. Other people have got to put something into this to make it happen, so come on! All you've gotta do is join up!
