 That's right folks, Thursday Night Throwdown is back for another week! In case you missed us last week, or you've contracted some sort of exotic Amazonian parasite that decimates your short-term memory, or you just forgot, here's the deal: Thursday Night Throwdown is our opportunity to play the latest, hottest multiplayer games with you, the Giant Bomb community, while we simultaneously stream it out live on the Internet and answer questions from the folks at home. Multitasking!

This week we're playing the widely available Halo: Reach beta, the only video game beta I can recall that has warranted its own TV commercial. If you'd like a chance to do some fragging with/to us, and you managed to snag yourself a beta code or you've got a copy of Halo 3: ODST, send a friend request to the gamertag GBTNT on the Xbox 360. We'll be semi-randomly selecting players to join us, though be warned: players that make the cut and then fail to report for duty will be blocked from our friends list permanently. We need warriors, not whingers! 

Of course, if you don't make the cut, or would simply rather spectate, you can watch the live video stream of the competition right here, as well as participate in the always-chaotic chat. So check back here at 4PM PACIFIC DAYLIGHT TIME (GMT -07:00) this THURSDAY, MAY 6TH, 2010 for our next... THURSDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN!  
 
UPDATE: The show's over folks, but you can relive the glory in our archived version below. Thanks to everyone who joined us, and catch next week's I Love Mondays to learn what the next game will be for Thursday Night Throwdown!

#36 Posted by Superfriend (1535 posts) -

I wanna play you guys sooooo bad!
..and in case any of my fellow bombers wanna play me, just add the Gamertag: "Grasslmeier" (yeah, I know it sounds weird, but that´s the point) to your friendslist. Just don´t expect me to talk that much/at all. I´m like Jeff, I like to keep quiet and focus on the kills.

#37 Posted by Potter9156 (940 posts) -

Assuming I get invited to play, I'll probably have 5-10 minutes before I have to leave. If only this was an hour earlier...

Bah, tried sending a friend request to GBTNT a few days ago and the friends list was full, tried again today and its still full.  Was so much fun last week I was hoping to get in again.

#41 Posted by SHADOWINFINITE (545 posts) -

If I do get picked tomorrow. Will you be messaging my Giantbomb profile or my xbox live gamer tag?

#42 Edited by Iireku (147 posts) -

I tried friend requesting and no luck. I will try to friend request again later.
 
Edit: Damn it, it's already full.  I wonder how many thousands of people sent requests?
