Aw, that sucks. I wish Xbox could have gotten a game that was made within the last couple years.

Not really sure what you expect me to say. Either you play the event or you don't. Complaining about it won't change what game was chosen, unless Morkula actually wants to swap to another game, but I don't really think anyone'll be thrilled to do Left 4 Dead 2 again (since I don't think he has many other multiplayer games).

I'll try to buy Bad Company 2 in the coming weeks and we can plan for an event for that, but otherwise I know you're capable of PMing me to suggest a game and host one yourself if you really don't find what's being picked satisfactory to your needs.

Sucks that I'm totally broke at the moment and won't be able to buy BFBC2 for another month.

-sigh-

Considering it's still the second most popular game on XBL, and was the most popular until MW2 came out, I think it's still a relevant choice. It's a game that most people who own a 360 have, and we can have a lot of people playing at the same time. If you don't like it, no one's holding a gun to your head and forcing you to play it. Stop trolling the thread.

And it's looking like we'll be playing Halo 3 on Friday night - March 12th. That's not final, but just giving you guys a heads-up. I'll have a more final date/time in the next day or two.

I'll go ahead and go for Halo 3. Haven't played it since MW2 came out, but it might still be somewhat fun.

You're completely right. Putting my viewpoint out there is totally trolling. I'll remember not to do that again. Sorry.

I'll go for some Team Fortress 2. Prophunt anyone?

Team Fortress 2 was released less than a month after Halo 3. Only the PS3 owners are going to be playing a new game.

I'm good for some Halo 3, that game never gets old in my opinion.

Well, it would be nice to have a newer game on the Xbox like BFBC2, but maybe next time.

Like I said, I'll try to get that within the coming weeks. I will just make a point though. Whenever we've went and done games that have just come out, the turnout is just bad. It's not like every, single member goes out to get the game the same time other members do, so we try to do games that people have had time to go out and buy. And yes, we did play L4D so much because so many people came out for the events in previous times, but that's why we're doing some other games this time. Sorry they're not all brand new, but it's just pointless if we get three people turning up to play a game that was just released.

But how about this. If any responsible members want to PM me and give me a choice for a game that is fairly popular and the turnout would be decent, I'm willing to let them be host to an event whenever the next one rolls around.

Aw crap, I was really looking forward to playing Team Fortress 2 with PC, but I'll be away on March 13th.

Schedule another TF2 event soon okay?

Sign me up for some TF2! I want to see how good you guys are at TF2.

I agree with Klippy. I know I can't afford BC2 & won't be able to until about the end of march when I come back from my trip

Shoot... I'll be away from my house on the 12th. :( Though I don't even know if we'll have a new Live subscription or our new 360 that we're planning on getting to replace ours (we're selling it to family).

Just a reminder that the Team Fortress 2 event is today at 5PM PST. That's in about three hours and 30 minutes for those that don't know where PST is. Hope to see you there!
