Default HWC X-Fire - Official "Super Awesome EXTREME Game Day to the maxTREME!" Event. [READ]

Super Awesome EXTREME Game Day to the maxTREME!"

Ok, now that my rig is finally up and running, I figured it's time for me to re-seat myself onto my throne...err...don't read that last part. Anywho, continuing on, as a few of you might have read, a while back I mentioned something about us having an upcoming "game day", which is to basically say a bunch of us go and game up a storm on some random server!

Of course, this is only the first stage of our master plan to take over the gaming world, wait...that's only my plan? Huh...that would explain a few things...Lets carry on shall we? The first step is to choose a game, which is why I'll be putting up a pole in a bit! Who will win? Only a bitter battle to the death shall reveal that!

The following competitors are *drum roll* (in no real order...)
  1. Call of Duty 4
  2. Counter Strike
  3. Counter Strike Source
  4. Team Fortress 2
  5. Crysis
The reason for these choices is they are for the most part new (ignore CS...) and well liked/played. Plus, the reason for them all being shooters is that it's much easier to whore a server with a bunch of people in one compared to, say, a RTS.

And feel free to voice...well type your opinion and the such, don't worry, my post doesn't bite...much ~_^

CS:S or TF2. TF2 would be good for team play. CS:S if you can own everything.

Another idea is to do Crysis multiplayer but not as deathmatch, CTF or whatever, cuz that sux in Crysis, but do other games you make up. Like Crab Skeet Shooting, Boat Races, Hide and Seek, IDK whatever u can think of...
