Just Cause 2 Multiplayer Live Stream Madness

Join Kevin as he grapples with the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer beta weekend.

Update: After struggling to connect to the jc-mp website for hours, and then being unable to connect to the server, I have no choice but to cancel today's Just Cause 2 multiplayer stream. I am so sorry about that--I was looking forward to it. However, you can follow me on Twitter or on Twitch.TV; I frequently stream various games that I'm playing, and hopefully I can make things up to you this coming week with something equally awesome. - Kevin

Just when you thought Just Cause 2 couldn't any crazier, along came some talented developers that decided that what the sandbox action game really needed was--more craziness! And thus was born the Just Cause 2 Multiplayer mod, which is having another beta weekend. Interested? Find out more information at the mod's official website.

More in the mood to watch the zany antics? Watch GameSpot's Kevin VanOrd go insane once again on the island of Panau on Saturday, September 8, from 12PM PDT to 4PM PDT!

Out of the 47 sandbox games I've played I would rank JC2 very near the top of the list and I'd pay $60 for co-op as a 360 DLC.

One of my favorite open world games. This and Borderlands have to be the best!

I had issues staying connected once I got there, I did have a nice 15 ~ 20 minute run at the beginning of the event but had too many disconnects to keep trying.

 

I hadn't played JC2 for awhile and forgot how much fun it was, went back to the single player mode and couple of my favorite mods.

Is this multiplayer for all ports? Is it still free roam? Or is it survival and crap like that? I would totally buy this game if it had fre roam multiplayer like GTA

Hi everyone--I may have to cancel today's stream. It took a long time just to be able to download the files to play, and now I cannot connect to the server, and it looks like a widespread issue. I will keep you updated and let you know over the next hour. I am sorry for the trouble :(

They just need to come out with a Just Cause 3 next year. JC 2 is one of my favorite open world games and I still play it. But I know that it might be hard for that to compete with GTA V, Watch Dogs and the possible Fallout 4  for next year.

I was glad there was a key to turn off the inane, racist,idiotic chat by 12 year olds.

Just when I thought this game was done for me and my buddies to screw around in, I hear about multiplayer.....

 @CruiserCaptain It's the game map, in MP. The entire map is available, with planes and vehicules. There were no NPCs last time I tried though.

 

You do whatever you want.

 @wadee902 I do have the files--but still cannot connect. Everyone that replied to my tweets on the subject informed me they could not connect to the server either. I am sorry for that!

 @AncientCthulhu What the heck is everyone's problem with having this on Xbox? Sure it wouldn't have as many connected players, but co-op would be awesome. That's coming from a PC gamer, by the way.

Take your meds and go to sleep senile grandpa. You are part of a dying breed. In several years there will be no such thing as PC gaming.

 @sircyrus  @CUDGEdave F4, if i can recall. Plus, at some point, i felt completely stupid because a guy said @ chat "press alt+F4 to spawn vehicles" and i did it...  I wasn't thinking, ok?! :'(

Agreed. I mean seriously, I think gaming should stick to consoles. Consoles are for ENTERTAINMENT. PCs ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FOR WORK ACTIVITIES, BROWSING THE INFAMOUS INTERNET, CONNECTING WITH OTHERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. There needs to be an effing difference. Same with phones nowadays. Phones should NOT become handheld gaming devices. We already have handheld gaming devices. Knowhatimean?

Yup cause the PS3s online service never went down for a month and you don't have to pay to be able to pay the games you already bought online with the 360....
