Red Dead: Game Night 7/10 Update!
We are glad to announce that PS3Blog.net’s third Red Dead Redemption game night is fast approching.
UPDATE: Due to a change in my vacation Demerson will be hosting this and next weeks Game Night
On Saturday July 10th from 8:30PM EST -11:00PM EST or later, Demerson will be hosting an night of Rodeo themed violence.
Last week we started offering Prizes and although no one won the Special prize, over 650 Blog Points were awarded.
Prizes will be awarded to players who bring extra life to the game. Be it by shooting skills, dying skills, antics, teamwork, or anything we deem to be cool. Awards will be in the form of Blog Points. If there is someone who puts their best foot forward and really blows us away they will recive a special prize thats a bit more tangible. Baring that the prize will be caried over to a later event.
At 9:00PM the Official game will begin, We will move to a Private Free Roam game that will be invite only*. We’ll do a mix of Free Roam and Co-Op.
At 10:00PM Things get personal with Gang match ups, Free for all, Gold rush, Grab the bag, and other ways of killing your fellow man.
Here are some details.
Due to the way in how RDR handles parties, only people on a players Friends list can be invited into a Private Match. To get around this limitation people wishing to join us for Game Night should send an PSN friend request to one of the two Co-hosts. Please mention PS3Blog.net Game Night in the topic and your user name on the Blog so we know who you are. Lots of people use a different name on PSN than on the Blog.
Demerson’s PSN = DZounar
Mic/Headsets are not required but will help make it more enjoyable for everyone. Almost any Bluetooth headset can be used with the PS3.
The responce from past weeks of Game Night has shown that the members want to make use of the Co-Op missions. Now that the Co-Op has been fixed and is stable we have added it to the normal lineup of games we’ll play. There is a limitation with Co-Op in that you group is limited to only four (4) players. So the chance of a posse being broken up is likely. We are trying to figure a work around for this that might include breaking up into multiple groups.
If you have not downloaded the new DLC for Red Dead Redemption make sure you do so, It’s free and only takes 15 mins to do.
** PS3Blog.net is a family friendly community although we are killing each other, we will be gentlemen about it. That way the hosts do not have to make use of the boot feature**
