Our 68th Game night will repeat one of the games/platforms as #66. However, it was important for us to have a game that everyone may either own easily have access to rent and a game that was on more than one platform.

---------

GameSpot's 68th Game Night will be held Tuesday, April 7th from 4-6pm PT (we may go later for some of you latecomers to get adjusted to the new time). We'll be playing Left 4 Dead on the PC and 360!

1. How do I get in on the action?
It is imperative that you join the chat room so staff and GameSpotters can communicate with all of you. We'll open the chatroom between 3 and 3:30pm PT.

1A. I am from another country and timezone other than California time (Pacific Time). What time is that for me?
http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

2. Remind me-why are we doing this again?
For the fun of it! A lot of people want to play games that include GameSpot employees and other members of the community.

3. What mode will we be playing?
TBD. We'll release more information about the format as soon as we have it.

4. Why this game? Why not another one?
This game is on more than one platform! Many of you have requested to have more than one platform and we like to keep you happy!

5. Can I join once the match is going?
Of course! Why not?

6. What GameSpot folks will I be playing with?
Jody will be playing on the PC.

We may also have a staff member using the GameSpotLive gamertag to host matches.

Kevin hasnt decided which platform yet. Mods and other GameSpot users may also host matches. We'll see if we can gether some more staff members

7. What else do I need to know?

Join Chat! We'll be opening the GameSpot tournament chat room at least a half an hour to an hour before we're scheduled to play. To enter it, just go to this link:http://www.gamespot.com/chat/chat.php?room=GameSpot_Tournament. That way you can get information from GameSpot staff and chat with your buddies before the game starts.

Be nice! Any disorderly behavior disqualifies you from participation and may earn you a moderation, suspension, or permanent ban. Please refrain from using harassing, negative, or profane language in either the Tournament chat or the game instance.

Don't cheat. No cheats or hacks of any kind are to be used. Taking advantage of known exploits in the game is also considered cheating. Doing any of that is considered against the spirit of the event, and if you are found to be cheating, you will be asked not to join future game nights.

8. What about bad language?
Try to keep it to a minimum. If someone lets a swear or two slip in chat, we won't have a fit or anything. Sometimes we may slip too. As long as you aren't flaming others you should be fine.

9. You mentioned something about "bounties" in the Game Night FAQ. What is up with that?
Every week, a player that meets the bounty requirement will get to take part in a grudge match later in the year against other bounty hunters. That match will take place on a game that pretty much anyone can play, such as a free bowling game, or some other such frivolity. The winner of the Grudge Match will receive a special emblem in his or her profile. Other emblems may also be awarded to players based on performance, wins, or other criteria.

10. What's this week's bounty requirement?
The non-scientific method: the player(s) GameSpot staff feels kicked their asses most.

11. I am totally the best, and you know it. What if you give the emblem to some other dude, even if I know I am better?
It's the admin's call.... yep, truly is.

12. So, do I have a good chance of kicking GameSpot ass?

Of course you do! There has got to be a game that we stink at.

13. Do I get an emblem for playing?
The only emblem goes to the bounty winner(s). It's next to impossible for me to keep up with who enters the server and who doesn't. Besides, isn't gloating over GameSpot Staff a great reward?

14, Post in this thread to claim you were there.
After you have finished playing (or a few days later) be sure to report that you participated! We'd like to see how many people attend these events, who you are and to have a record of games that are popular enough, maybe we can repeat them. To check in for roll call, dropping by the chatroom already will track you joining. If you cannot log into chatroom you'll want to drop by this thread to let us know you stopped by and any feedbackabout the event.

UPDATE: We will be granting an emblem in celebration of the return of game nights in 2009. Participants will receive an emblem after roll call is complete. The sure way to receive the emblem is to join the GameSpot chatroom and show that you partiicpated in some matches. If you cannot get into the chatroom make sure staff or moderator have seen you partiicpate in a match and then post in this thread. 

Concept by sequekhan, designed by anthonyr1

15. Post your highlights!
If you'd like to post footage highlights or any comments about others you played, this thread should also be used for such content.

IMPORTANT UPDATE about mature rating: If you are unable to participate because of the ESRB rating or cannot attend this event due to the times, we still want you to celebrate the return of game nights and receive the emblem through another kind of participation. On Wednesday I'll post a zombie trivia. Another thread will be created for this little activity and everyone can participate regardless if they were in-game on Tuesday night or not. We don't want to exclude anyone. :)  Thanks!

I believe there were more than this, but not everyone dropped by chatroom. If you didn't get listed in this roll call post in this thread with your steam or XBL gamertag, which should show your activity for playing last night.

At least 5-6 others stopped by to chat and not play. Below are four additional users that dropped by but there was no indication that they played in a match.

Awesome, I'm going to be playing on the 360. Well if we want to make sure we have the most players playing. We will have to play Versus mode. That allows 8 players of course.

Left 4 Dead on the PC uses a lobby system. Somebody creates a lobby, people join it, then Left 4 Dead will start looking for a server to play on. You can buy your own server to host a game, but it's not necessary.

Barring some severe stupidity on my end I'm so all over this on the 360 side of things. I'm just no good using mouse and keyboard controls anyways so it's much better for me this way.

Works out to about 11am start Wed morning in AEST. I should be able to squeeze it in before work, so I'll be there. Only got the game today though, so I'll be a bit of a newbie. Not a newbie to the genre though!

I'll be on the PC.

By the way, there is an emblem being granted in celebration of the return of Game Night for the year!

If you are under the ESRB ratiing or cannot attend, please read the update about a little activity we'll have to continue the celebration!

I planned to host some PC matches so if any of you want to host some 360 matches let me know. I'm still trying to gather more GS staff.

Also, do any of you have any suggestions about what game modes we should play?

There are only 2 game modes to play; 4 player campaign co-op and 8 player versus. There is a new game mode due out soon, but I don't think it is out yet.

Survival is the new mode and the other two maps will be in versus but the download is not out yet. Versus is pretty much all we can do, unless we get a small turnout.

We should probably be doing Versus to get more people into the games. Versus can get a little hairy at times but it's definitely the way to go here. Co-op is fun and all but there's no real competitive element to that sorta game.
