Game Nights with PS3Blog.net


Lately, our game nights have been pretty impromptu, with Sinlock and Demerson’s attempts being the most organized of the bunch. I’m here hoping to get interest in Game Nights, but I need help from you guys.

Before I get into that, though, our first one will take place tomorrow night at around 5:30PM Pacific time. The game of choice is Red Dead Redemption (as chosen by a couple folks on our facebook page). If you’re interested in joining, let me know here, along with your PSN ID; add me on PSN as well. My ID is JimmyMagnum. We’ll be doing hideouts, hunting and co-op! Not sure if it will be affected, but I do have the Liars and Cheats pack for more hideouts, etc, so you might need that. I know Sinlock will be doing Game Nights for RDR again when the Undead Nightmare releases as well.

Now, as to why I need help. We’re aiming to have multiple game nights set up a week, with different games on different nights/days, etc. This will be determined on availability and the games someone owns. Since not many of us will be owning every multiplayer game that comes out, I want to get people to manage game nights for specific games, etc. If you’re interested, let me know!

Preferably, I want at least 2 people per game/night that can help run it, so if you want to help us and own the games folks want to play, let us know! The two-per-game is mostly for if one person can’t make it, another can step in. I will see about compensation (read: points) for helping to run these (I will talk to Tosh about that one). More information after the jump!

As far as players go, I will try to get points to top players as well. The guys who help run the game nights will have to PM me a winners list or something. Point rewards will be determined in the near future. We have plans and the like for tournaments and everything as well.

After we get this RDR game night tomorrow, we’re going to try to do a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 night sometime soon as well, and then work on expanding the list to games like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Uncharted 2, MGO, Killzone, LBP (though that’s limited to 4) etc. If you want to see a game featured, let us know and we’ll try to get a game night going for it!

One of the ones I’m most excited about will be our Race Days and Race Nights on Gran Turismo 5. I will be heading this one for sure. Each race will be featuring a different class, specific eras, etc. I also plan on having tournaments and endurance races every once in a while as well. Not sure what day or time, but it will happen! Tournament and endurance racers who managed a 1st-3rd place will likely get awarded more points than usual, but will also be based on place.

Hopefully we get a lot of interest in this! It will be a great way to earn points and the like as well! If this initiative picks up, we’ll have a drawn out schedule folks can check out to see when and what we’ll be playing!

    I have an idea, if we have enough people, we can actually do a private free for all. The top player wins 20-50 points? or 10-25 points per round for top player and 10 points for opposing team top player (if the game decides to throw us at a team game, if it’s a free for all then just the 20-50 points for top player and 10 points for second place?)

    There has been interest in a Uncharted 2 and Warhawk. I can host those.

    On point compensation for running a game night, and participating, sure!

    we could do like a thing where everyone puts in 5 points and the winner takes all?

    Warhawk 2???

  5. #5 by kennygk on October 5th, 2010 [ 24968 Points ]

    I would join you guys if you were playing on friday :( I have RDR, warhawk, and uncharted 2

    derrickgott007: Warhawk 2???  

    lol, opps.

  7. #7 by Jay on October 5th, 2010 [ 83111 Points ]

    what about a Warhawk night on Friday then?

    @xberserker: we’ll still need to figure out point values

    5:30 pm pacific time is too late for me, it’ll be like 3 am where I’m at…

    Work days would be hard to organize a global event, so people could do it in their respective timezones. However, weekends have global gaming potential. I remember running into Jay a few times on BFBC2. I ran into him with a tank. (kidding, we were on the same team, and the correct word would be run over, in any case.)

    Btw, I hate warhawk.

    I’m busy Friday night actually. On point values we should have a generic set point value for these game nights. Max you can earn in a game night say 100 points?

    I’d love some RDR although this time might not work. I assume someone will set up a calendar?

    Does MAG support group play like this? I always play generic matches.

    once we get more people singed up to help run them and have them more frequently

  13. #13 by Trev on October 6th, 2010 [ 26623 Points ]

    I should be able to make the Red Dead night as its 12:30AM GMT time, don’t have the liars DLC mind.

  14. #14 by Clint on October 6th, 2010 [ 56307 Points ]

    I will be there tonight, though I lack the liars and cheats expansion atm.

  15. #15 by Jay on October 6th, 2010 [ 83111 Points ]

    We should be OK hopefully. You guys have the (I believe) free co-op pack?

  16. #16 by Flashray on October 6th, 2010 [ 90 Points ]

    its kinda late for europeans ..

  17. #17 by Clint on October 6th, 2010 [ 56307 Points ]

    Yes, I have the free one that came out, though I haven’t explored the content yet haha. I’ll end up getting L&C soon, I do want to play some Liars Dice online. I’ll get the next expansion for sure when it is released.

    Flashray: its kinda late for europeans ..  

    Well, we do need more people to tell us their best times, you never said what your best time would be lol. We’ll have more Game Nights in the future, so if you miss out on this one, you an always try another one. It’s just going to be hard getting EU and US players together without either side being too early or too late

    Sorry I missed last nights RDR game.

    I got the urge to finaly grind AC2 and get the 63 Feathers I still needed. So when I was finaly done I really needed to do the family time thing.

    But I did finaly get the Platnum trophey for AC2. That one takes my count to 5.
