I wish I could join you guys... I'm on holiday until the end of the month with no access to a 360. Have fun!

I'll double-check but tentatively put me down.

I'm in for tomorrow! 10pm EST I'll be there!

I *should* be good. Nothing planned for tomorrow evening at the moment. I'll keep ya'll updated.

Had a great time with CptDomano and PA on Saturday. Sorry I couldn't play as much as I would have liked - had a fussy toddler and then an angry wife who needed to be appeased. Definitely down for some more asap!

Yeah definitely had a great time playing with you guys! Just a heads up that Friday/Saturday nights are usually out for me, though. That's usually when the wife and I head out into the world for a bit. But if you guys ever want to get together during the week or Sunday night, I'm definitely down to play some more.

Is Domano a big slackass scorewise? I bet he is. I bet so.

You're a big slackass. Slackass.

I could keep up with the big boys on some maps. PA was a goddamn beast most of the time, though What I found interesting was how much I used the single shot ACR-10 in DART mode during the campaign, and then how confused I was that it wasn't available during the multiplayer. That and having backfire only affect one enemy at a time, and I was a little out of my element during the more intense firefights.

That being said, I did rank up to 7 or 8 before it was all said and done. Not too bad for my first foray into the co-op

I'll have to tag along sometime and show you the true meaning of beast. I saw an invite the other night but I was juuust about turn off ye olde Xbox to watch some basketball.

That firing mode on that gun is available through upgrades, btw.

Yeah, I ended up figuring that out and got it added before I logged off for the night.

Syndicate has Beast Mode? Has anyone told Brian?

I got it as a preorder bonus.

I definitely want to play more of it soon! Always forgot just how much fun that co-op is.

This is a really weird memorial, but would anyone want to do a co-op run through on Tuesday in memory of ianunderhill? This thread was my first real interaction with him, here and in irc.

He was a great guy, and his passing has really affected me.

In. Super in.

Alas, I have it for PC. Another fine game on the backlog.

I will find the time to be there for that, absolutely.

Wow, I was not aware of his passing. This is very sad.

Question, anyone have an objection to me live streaming our session for other Goodjers to watch if they so desire? I recently got the broadband speed to live stream from home and I have the equipment to broadcast from my 360. It would just be my screen and people would be able to hear others chatting so I wouldn't do it if anyone was uncomfortable but I dunno, thought it might be cool for Goodjers to watch one of Nick's favourite titles in action.

I am totally down with it. So far me, you and blind. We still need a 4th!

Yeah, it's tricky. A lot of people that had this game on the site got rid of it. There are a lot of PC version players but that doesn't help us. :/ I did a live stream test with my Elgato Game Capture HD tonight through my ultrabook and it works great so we should have no problem broadcasting it.

I can't play (PS3) but I'll watch.

If anyone wants to pick up the game to be our fourth, you should be able to find it stupid cheap now as it's been out for a while and was also a sales bomb. It's $19.99 on Xbox Games On Demand and if you look, you can probably find a used retail copy for under $10. It doesn't matter if you haven't played before, join StanliTech and we'll power level you!

I can't make it until later in the evening (probably past 10ish, eastern), but I will try to pick up a used copy and be on as a fourth, if no one else steps up.

I'll ask Domano in I'd tomorrow to make sure we have our 4th.

I don't think we need to play on expert per se, so a fourth isn't strictly necessary. I wouldn't want you to go too far out of your way for it.

PXA, the live stream idea sounds great.

I am thinking we play on easy and do a full run of all the maps, just enjoying each other's company and reflecting on Nick's life. I don't want to play on expert.

If we want to keep playing after an easy run, we can always turn up the difficulty then. It would be cool to have a full complement either way though. The only thing that might be tricky for the live show is in order for your voices to come through, I'll be telling me 360 to play back Xbox Live voice chat through my speakers as well as my headset. I find that's often extremely quiet. I'll test that out with someone tomorrow evening though and we'll see what we can do.

What time do people want to start things? We'll have to make sure everyone's there at a certain time so I can start the stream before we begin playing. I also want to promote this among GWJ a little bit so I'd like to set a time so as many people can tune in as possible. I'm available basically any time 7pm EST or later.

I'm free after 7pm as well. Usually we have to wait til 10 for Sally though.

To pick a nit, there is no easy. It's normal/hard/expert. Personally I'd like to try hard, because with everything unlocked I can solo quite a few of the levels on normal.

One thing though, however unlikely...

Spoiler:
I have a pretty good thing going with a really nice gal right now. She has parental obligations so it's not likely, but if she decides to randomly come by after work... Nick knew of my romantic frustrations all too well and he'd want me to keep my priorities straight >_>

I have already gotten clear for 830 central.
