I leave for a few days to help my parents leave, and the threat is booming! Perrrrfict. But why, oh why is COD4 winning! I'm still waiting for my copy to ship! XD

Speaking of which, though the date isn't "official" yet, it will probably be sometime next week, most likely Saturday or Sunday. But saying that doesn't mean we can't do some gatherings here and there!

Been so Long since I have played an online game would be afraid of getting pawned to many times to play. the last Online game I played was ET I used to play CS but the difference from ET to CS is a bit especially when people seemed to be hacking allot pulling off Head shots every time the pulled the trigger was a little to much for me lol

Ok, just to give a quick update, unless people have a problem with the day, the game day will take place on this Saturday. Now, depending on what people would rather, we can A) pretty much do the thing all day, and you log on when you can, or; B) We can do certain times for different time zones.

Ugh, sorry about not posting an update last night, I kinda fell asleep...

Anywho, we might have to postpone the actual day for another week if we have to set this up differently (don't hurt me...). The original point was for everyone to play one game, but we are gonna have to get a little postal on that idea and change it to a multi-game day. I'll be posting more about it later, and probably be editing my first post in the thread. Murphy is following me with a handaxe, I swear to god...

Ok! Time to actually begin to organize things here, I've been putting this off a bit to much, plus my friend kinda got me addicted to Starcraft again...Anywho, let's carry on shall we? The original idea behind this was for all of us to play one game, but due to difficulties, we need to widen the range of gameplay to accommodate everyone's need. So, in laymen terms, we are gonna be playing two games instead of just one, the two of which are the two top winners on the poll, Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty 4.

Once again, the date will be on Saturday [09/02/08] (hopefully I won't work that day XD), as it should be the easiest for everyone to get on at some point then in the middle of the week. If there is any problems with said date, speak up and we will see what we can manage. The timings themselves still have to get worked out, but I'm currently leaning towards 3 set of timings for each pair of games. In other words, There would be one set going in the morning, where we would play CoD4, followed by TF2, second timing at lunch, and third at night. This way, people who have things to do will still be able to get some gaming in and I believe should give the least amount of problems. Once again, if this causes any troubles or you have a better idea, voice your opinion and I will see what I can work out.

Third, and last for this post is that we will need some good servers of which to join. Normally doing this is on a whim, so a bunch of us just join a random server, but because of how we are going about this, it would be best to have a server to join without having to search on the day.

Anywho, time to head to work!
