I'll have almost 3 weeks of rust to kick off, but I'm greatly looking forward to the opportunity to shotgun and be shotgunned.

The last one we had that I was involved in was one of the best nights ever!

We shall see. My dissatisfaction with GoW is at nearly an all-time high, but I will probably still play.

It's been quite a while, but I guess it's about time to dust off GoW for one last whirl...

The past two Fridays I've been playing with a group of friends and we've had an absolute blast, and two weeks ago my wife made her inaugural debut.  I'll probably play, and my wife might be up for it as well depending on how she feels after getting back from a business trip.

I'll try my best to make it, it's just whether or not I can remember the night of. If someone can give me a kick in the pants when the time comes around, I'll be there for sure.

Actually connecting to the host is a whole different issue.

If you find out you'll be there for sure, let us know so that I don't host it and you can join.  We don't want to get in a situation where we kill a great game to let you in and then you just !poof! disappear on us like  a scumbag l0z3r*



*Not based on an actual Superhiro event or anything unless you count the time that he couldn't get in, we killed and restarted the game and he dropped offline as we did it.  Many tears were cried and bothans killed and we found ourselves liking teh AZNs a little less.  But then some weeks later, teh GellAZN joined and played and chainsawed us and we found our tastes for wonton and silk returning with a gusto.

Assuming that Moriarty gets her butt over here, should be up for playing.  Of course I do temporaily have 2 360's, so I might send a 360 and Gears over to her.

Heh, my bad dude.  That was my first experience with XBL EVER, some port forwarding and a new router later, everything should be hunky dory.  And if you thought gellar was reckless, you haven't seen anything yet.

Great games tonight everyone.  I seem to bring up the bottom of the bracket and am mostly useless when it's down to just me, though.  Oh well, I'm a good meat shield and support player.  icon_cool

Sorry about that Simon. Austin had some tech difficulties so it was only right to bring him back into the game. Next week maybe! maybe maybe maybe....

Jance you did fine tonight. Austin too...though he relies too much on the machine gun Tongue

Pete was back in form.

Forcebane (beergoggles) is always a force.

I think everyone did pretty well tonight. Very good balanced games with seesaw momentum.

Didn't invite you CK, cause I thought you had sold the game off a while ago.  Would you have played?

GellAZN ignored the invites.

Hiro was a no show pansy.

Ike must have fallen asleep.

Dimmona's a no show pansy

MattC0m and DonD didn't even long in...pansies.

Calvin did well too!
But for everyone who played, it was just great!

No worries at all, I was fine with jumping back out. I'd be up for trying again sometime though.

Well I had two problems:
1. My internet connection has been bad for at least a week, giving me slow pings in every game I have tried the last few days-I was definately lagging in Gears, which was making it not fun.

2. I sucked-mostly I think because I just lost interest totally. 4v4 is fine, but I need new game modes because I just can't get excited for the current ones right now. I think I need like 2-3 weeks solid break before I can play again.
