Thursday Night Throwdown gets dissonant this week with Monday Night Combat, the recent surprise Xbox Live Arcade hit that has been lazily--and fairly accurately--described as a mashup of Defense of the Ancients and Team Fortress 2. Apparently we picked the right game this week, as our friends list has been full up since Monday! If you didn't make the cut, our condolences, though you can still watch as we buy turrets, gun down annoying mascots, and show you the moneyball on our live video stream! If you'd like to crack wise with other like-minded Giant Bomb users, feel free to hop on over to the Official Giant Bomb Justin.tv Channel.
 
UPDATE:  Thursday's Monday Night is over! Thanks to everyone who watched and played, and if you missed it, peep the archived version below.

#12 Posted by rottendeadite (3 posts) -

I like the looks of this game, but I'm just not sure I'll be able to put down TF2 long enough to really give it a fair shake.

#13 Posted by TheYear20XX (426 posts) -

I got on the friends list but my gold decided to run out yesterday so I most likely won't be able to join you guys. I'll still tune in though!

#14 Posted by Sovereign13 (147 posts) -

I have high hopes for this weeks TNT.

#15 Posted by AngryMrWiggles (15 posts) -

#16 Posted by Spunkrake (29 posts) -

Gentlemen!
 
I'm on the friends list, I think, for this game, but this is my first TNT, so I'm not sure how it all works.  Anyone care to explain for me?  One thousand thanks.

Watch the livestream, and they will end up inviting you to a few matches.
 
 
 
Cant wait to bust a cap in Ryan, or whoever will be playing.

"Thanks, I guess."
 
That's fantastic! 
#25 Posted by Ursus_Veritas (383 posts) -

I'm on the list, I can't wait! I want to mow down the Bomb crew in hail of bullets. Virtual bullets, that is.
 
I'll be the assault punting you guys off the edge of the map with my charge... until an assassin backstabs me D=

This TNC TNT should be pretty good.

#28 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I actually managed to get on the list.  Can't wait to get in on the action! 
I'll probably jump on the game in about a half-hour just to get into my rhythm (no... I'm not any good at the game, but I'd still like to do relatively well!)

#29 Posted by Thule (692 posts) -

I know almost nothing about this game, but I guess I'm gonna find out soon.

#32 Posted by SgtMcBadass (13 posts) -

looks like we got a scout photobombing your banner dave.  
 
Nice

#33 Posted by zaglis (910 posts) -

The banner rocks.

#34 Posted by fedorajay (404 posts) -

New class 'Scout' confirmed. Can't wait for this to go live. Thursdays are always TNT night.

#35 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

I hope I can get a match in with you guys.

#36 Posted by dantheman1515 (297 posts) -

The friends list was full within like 30 minutes of I love Mondays. So I can't play.... :(

#37 Posted by Creamypies (4091 posts) -

So bummed out that their friends list filled up so damn quickly. Really would've liked to get into a game with 'em.

Demoman is pissed that Giant Bomb stole the thunder from his own Thursday TNT Nights.

Fun!

#41 Posted by Slayeric (266 posts) -

I'm on the friends list as well. This is gonna be rad.

#42 Posted by hazzard4123 (196 posts) -

Scout in the banner made me lol

#43 Posted by CandleJakk (766 posts) -

I'm not a huge fan of TF2 (don't get me wrong, it's good fun, but it doesn't quite click with me), so I've kept away from MNC - this may sway my mind one way or the other.

#44 Posted by Pop (2650 posts) -

lawl at the scout xD.

#45 Posted by ArrenDusk (84 posts) -

Oh yeah.

#46 Posted by BeardyDuck (109 posts) -

Good Luck Have Kessler.

#47 Posted by BlackMantis (20 posts) -

I managed to sneak into the friends list at the last minute because a few people dropped out. I think I'm going to enjoy this TNT.

#48 Posted by Theavy (82 posts) -
