We had six XBOX’s hooked up and a remote one in play. We had a seventh handy but did not hook it up. At one point we had 4 consoles playing Gears of War 2, 2 consoles playing Call of Duty 4 with Billy joining in from home, and another setup to play COD WAR split-screen. We also played a little Rock band on a Console when we ran out of game disks. We took a break to play 4 person Little Big Planet on the PS3. It was hectic but fun.
In attendance with their XBOX were Jake, Jacob, Tommy, Connor and Dmitri. Jay was a guest of Jacob’s and Ed came bringing his PS3 controller.
This month we’ll delay XBOX night a week because of the holidays.
We will be gathering next Friday Jan 9 at 6:30, rather than tomorrow. This night will be limited to those that have COD4, COD WAW, or Gears of War 2 and can bring their console. Each of these games supports only 1 player per console. If you have one of these games, but do not wish to bring your console but want to play from home (and have an XBOX Gold Live Account) we can accommodate that and connect online. Please confirm if you plan to participate.
We had 4 players playing COD4. David & Dmitri took on Alan and Ed and beat them handedly. David Ed vs Dmitri Alan was a bit more even. It was the first time we played COD4 system link and we didn’t experience andy problems. We’ll try for 6 players next time.
We’re trying something new this “season”. We’re putting Halo on a hiatus for XBOX Night and introducing Call of Duty 4 for our first XBOX night of the school year. That’s this Friday Sept 5th at 6:00. Pizza will be served. $5 donation/person is always welcome.
Though Halo 3 was rated ‘M’ I always considered it to be a fairly mild ‘M’. Call of Duty 4 is very realistic in its depiction of War and earns its M rating; it’s definitely not for every youngster.
The COD 4 multiplayer game is also not as party friendly in that only one person can play per console. Therefore, this Friday, we can only invite those that can bring an XBOX and a COD 4 game with them. Everyone that can make it MUST RSVP. No surprise visitors since there is no flexibility in setting up (1 person per screen). For those that CAN bring an XBOX & COD4, you can invite one guest; though be prepared to switch out with them if they come to play!
Gears of War 2 is scheduled to come out in November. It is one of the BEST co-op games and we may try it on XBOX night when it comes out. I read a review in XBOX magazine about a new “Horde” mode that allows 5 people to go up against increasingly harder waves of computer-generated foes. There are also some interesting new multi-player games such as “Submission” which is capture the flag with the twist added that the flag is alive and shoots at you!
We will not be hosting XBOX night during the summer. Just taking a break. We’ll see you in September
Busy Friday, we have to move XBOX night to this Saturday. If you can make it, you can come by starting at 5:30. We’ll order Pizza.
For those that have XBOX’s but don’t care to bring them, it would help if you could bring a controller or two. We seem to run short of them. Other accessories that help: Headset, wireless dongle. COD4 game.
Of course the more consoles we have the less sharing we’ll have to do.
Let’s try to get a few challenge matches in and we might split up into two different groups so it doesn’t get so crazy trying to get everyone ready for a single game.
Please leave a comment if you can make it.
April XBOX night will be this coming Saturday night, due to a conflict on Friday.
We’ll start play at 6:30 Sat April 5.
We’ll provide snack and drinks. No pizza this month, sorry.
Please let me know if you are coming and if you plan to bring your XBOX & Halo 3 game.
If you have COD4, bring it just in case.
