This week we will be having not one but two game nights--Counter-Strike: Source and Minecraft!
This week we will be having not one but two Community Game Nights!
The first up is Counter-Strike Source (PC) on Wednesday, August 10, at 5:00 p.m. There will be a chatroom open for discussion, and we will be releasing details on the map and server IP the day of the game in the chatroom. Word around the office is that Ryan MacDonald plans on joining us for this night of awesome frag fun. So for your chance to take on Mac himself, be sure to get those mouse fingers warmed up. You can find more information about the Game Night here.
The second game is one that has GameSpot editor Sophia Tong enthralled. If the "Diary of a Minecraft Blockhead" wasn't enough, now we will be having a second night dedicated to Minecraft in all its pixelated glory. Friday, August 12, at 5:00 p.m. we will be kicking things off with GameSpot editor Sophia Tong, GameSpot Community, and more! Click here for additional information and discussion.
UPDATE: Participants of this game night will receive a Minecraft achievement. Sophia also updated her blog to share how new players can get in the action tonight. Check that out, and don't forget that this weekend the Minecraft peeps have buy 1 get 1 free offer happening! So buy your game for tonight and give a gift code to a friend!
UPDATE 2: Sophia said she'll post the IP in the comments and in the chatroom as it gets closer to game night time! Also, here's the chatroom!
FINAL UPDATE: The weekly report isn't happening this week, but we'll be sure to update you on some cool things happening early next week.
For anyone that got the Minecraft trial from the Humble Bundle, it should still work until the 14th - so good for the Community Game Night :)
