I have to post?!?!? WTF?!?!?

Time you got off your ass and did something to help out around here, insurance boy.

I thought getting drunk every Thursday and commencing with the "Airing of Greivances" was enough. Who knew?

Rocky night. Guess I shoulda had more to drink. Sh*tty servers, cheating douchebags, SUEZ SUEZ F*CKING SUEZ! It's enough to almost make me want Tampa. Almost.

I liked that city/verticle map. It was very interesting and a very nice change of pace.

edit: Been a while since we've had a knife screenshot. BURN!

Yeah. I have played 300+ hours of 2142 and never have played in any games that came out so uneven as those last two rounds.

I stabby-stabbied one of those clan jerks on that last server. Taking his tags was the only good thing from those last two rounds.

The thunder storm knocking me offline for awhile and Jarhead losing his connection did not help.

Ah, well, we will try to regroup next Thursday night!

Great pics!

"I did not watch my buddies die face down in the mud so this strumpet, this whore, could have VENRILLO PROBLEMS ON 2142 NIGHT!"

After last night I think Thursday nights may be dying until Heroes releases.

Anyone want to try BF BC on the 360 next Thursday night?

Is it cheap somewhere? I don't want to pay $60 for something that is going to last a week. I tried getting on last night, I was in connection/punkbuster hell and I just gave up. Shades, Firedrake and I have been playing CoH lately if anyone wants to join us, maybe we can do that on Thursday.

A bunch of people don't have 360s, so you're cutting jarhead, Indignant, and Wiggum out of the group right there. TF2 is the big PC shooter right now, but it has no vehicles and is a lot different than BF. SHould we switch to that instead? $20 on Steam.

Is ArmA too harsh?

ArmA is indeed harsh.

2142 is not dead. 360 = no mouse support so I will never purchase one. I've played 2142 almost every Thursday even when the rest of you fickle shrivs walked away. Come on Swampy. Show some sack.

I have TF2. It already has two nights a week. I have purchased CoH, just haven't installed it yet. Once I install I'll play it any night but Thursdays.

I'd be up for whatever, frankly. A little DM would be an interesting addition to the mix. Everything we play is team-based. But, it'd be nothing like hunting the Ol' Swamp in a deathmatch. Last night, I was planning on playing, but Jack says, "Daddy wanna go sleep with me?" So I sack out, and he falls asleep at 10. 1hr gaming only, if-- I don't have my usual mic issues...

I do have TF2, though.

I'm out for TF2, I can't get into it. And like Indignant said, it already has 2 nights.

CoD4?

After last week's session, I was BF2124'ed out for a bit, so I did TF2 last night. Sorry! As for a new game, I don't have a 360 either.

PC Frontlines is on sale at gogamer.com for $30. I don't know its current status as far as patches and suckiness. I don't have CoD4 though it's something I've been planning to get eventually.

Screw it. I guess stay with 2142 until heroes comes out.

NP, I play for the company anyway, that is when I hate it when things get quiet.

I have been on a BF2 kick for the past month. I like the fact that it is less complex and I stay away from the maps that I know are air heavy as I hate been blown to hell and back.

I am sometimes on Vent on Thursday nights, but I have to be up at 4 am (Eastern time) for work so I am usually off before even the first person comes on board.

Anyone up for tonight?

In.

I tried TF2 this week on some public servers, but it seems like a game built around team play and everyone on the map knowing how to play their class. Not noob friendly as far as I could tell. For a once a week game, BF is still solid.

Unless I have connection problems/punkbuster problems like last week, I'll be on.

Test it out ahead of time, and if you have the same problems try reinstalling everything. That usually ends up working for me.

My dsl was all f*cked up last week, and when I tried to update pb, it would never complete.

Who's house? Run's house!

Never thought I'd have that much fun playing Tampa. Goodtimes!

I don't believe you.

That's surprising!

Seriously, gg last night. Tampa was fun.

It's true. The reason that everybody hates that map is that it is extremely lone wolf unfriendly. You need decent squad tactics. You need players willing to forgo kills to pilot transports. Both were evident and in great supply last night. The results was GOODJER DOMINATION!

I agree regarding Tampa and squading. Those were the first rounds of Tampa that ever felt like the best of 2142. Maybe it was a fluke, but we had a good mix of flying around taking points, epic armor battles, shooting down gunships. Good games.

Where were you dirty ho's?
