Giant Bomb's first Hunger Games! (XBLA)

#1 Edited by SexyToad (2759 posts) -

Hey everyone! Recently I've been playing some hunger games on the PC, but the servers I did find, were really laggy. So I decided to make my own map on the xbla version! I'm hoping I will be done with the map soon. I closed off a portion of the map, built walls, added chests, and so on. So who's up for a match? I'm hoping I can make this into a weekly thing where duders can play and if they want, can help me build the map up a bit. If you do want to participate, leave your gamertag and time zones, so I can start creating a list. I'll also have pictures of the map up once I'm happy with it. It's nothing too fancy yet. You must have at least 25 posts to participate though.

Hello everyone! Recently I decided to create a hunger games map! Well I failed. Anyways I found a maps on YouTube that were available for download. I downloaded it and now it's available for play!

Here's a link to the YouTube video.

It's a pretty grand map. So for those wondering, "what's Hunger games?" its a duel. Players will meet in an arena, where its fight to the death. The objective is to survive and kill other players, there are chests around the maps for the players to find items to help them KILL.

Rules are simple:

  • Don't break blocks other than leaves or vines.
  • Don't be a jerk (cuss at other players or anything like that)
  • Stay at the platform once killed or leave.

I will schedule a time once we have some participants. Minecraft XBLA can hold 8 players, so it would always be 7+I (the host) Post below if you wish to participate, please add your time zone.

If you would like to see the map, feel free to contact me here or message me on Xbox Live at "SxyToadster"

Also feel free to ask any questions.

If you get enough people, I'd be down for some dumb Minecraft shenanigans such as this. GT is the same as my username.

I've found several more maps that I downloaded and placed on my Xbox 360. WE HAVE HUNGER GAMES MAPS FOR WEEKS. But we need more participants first. I'm planning on making this weekly thing on Saturday. Probably 8-10 PST.

@mariachimacabre:@damisterchief: @nictel: and everyone else participating...

I was planning for this to be today, but I ended up being busy. Tomorrow seems like too much of a short notice. So next Saturday! I would need to know your guys time zones so I can plan a time which is best for all.
