GameSpot's 75th Game Night will be held Tuesday, May 26th from 4-8pm PT. Staff will be dropping by any time between those times. We'll be playing UFC 2009 Undisputed on the Xbox 360, PS3! 

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.

A. 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. If you want to be extra tech savvy and you use Firefox, download the foxclocks application to monitor your timezone versus other timezones.


2. Remind me-why we are 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

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?

TBA

7. Who are the game hosts?

TBA

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

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

12. 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. You may want to either be super friendly at killing the admins or super agressive, like talool1 in last week's game night

13. 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.

14. Do I get the bounty hunter 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?

15. Anything else I need to consider?
Depending on the console and game, we may also be using voice chat. Be sure to have your microphone handy!

16. What's with the orange text?
We may update this area so check back for updates.

17. Where should I report my game night experience?
You can record, take screenshots and post your reactions to came night in this board. Someone may use the information and post it in the game night report hread that will be created after game night is over.

18. How can I earn the UFC Undisputed gamenight emblem?

Everyone will want to login to chat during 4-8pm PT to play in a match with staff.If for some reason someone cannot show up in the chatroom, they may be out of luck in finding a match with staff. Try asking your friends that are in the game night chat to get you in the match via PSN and 360.  I may also post the PSN id and 360 gamertags in this thread for you to add and try to get in a game. If you do play in a match this way, you'll need to post your PSN and 360 name in this thread.

 Here is my prewrite up 

Do you have what it takes to become Gamespots Ultimate Fighting Champion. For this weeks Game Night we will be stepping into the Octagon to proving than "WE" the  GS community have what it takes to become the Ultimate Fighter.  Once you enter the cage, there is only one way out, Knockout or Tapout. You decide!

You don't get an emblem for attending.  During the gamenight, the staff that participated chooses a person who they feel kicked the most butt, and reward him/her with the Bounty Hunter Emblem :).

While that's normally right, this game night will be different due to many staff members participating. I posted a blurb in the community weekly report about the emblem.

Is the bounty hunter emblem also still up for grabs?

I did have some matches, I just don't think I was beaten by any staff. Jody's GT xpcaligirl was idle for about the first hour, that was the main time I was online. When it did become active, it was in and out of matchs and I had to leave about an hour and half into the game night. The GameSpotLive GT wasn't used (at least not for the time I was online). Those are the only 2 staff gamertags on my friend list

I knocked, Brian and Ryan out at least once. Shaun at least 6 times, but I never managed to take Justin down.

Edit

@Jerell_rast Oh, I would like to give a shout out to Jerell_rast for supporting me while played. I now owe him 10% of my winnings :P

I don't remember the users, but after I completed the tutorial (because I had just got the game), I got into 2 matches and then had to go. If most of the staff were on the 360, they probably did so when I went offline because while I was online and reading the chatroom, most of them were for the PS3 and your account was idle. No worries though. There's always a next time :wink:

Here's the PS3 hightlights reel that was recorded by staff.  

Soulreavercross: Yeah, we made that emblem to be re-purposed for other big staff game nights.

I had a great time last night. It was my first time doing a game night, so I had a blast. I still have some questions about the bounty hunter thing, but I guess I will find out in due time. Thanks to all the staff that participated (I told you i'd beat you down Brian :D) I hope to see some of you online and do this again sometime. Also note, after E3 Ghostbusters will bcoming out, so hope to see some of you others on PSN so we can get some 4 player co-op going on. Great fights by all last night :D

I think my footage of the matches is the only highlights because they didnt record any on the 360 machines.  I haven't had any time to edit that footage. Probably wont until after E3. I still have to cut the Killzone 2 video as well.

By any chance you will be having another game night with UFC?
