I would like to be flexible for the month of June because we plan to have E3 in the first week. I will also be on vacation mid/late June. So, here's to a month full of a different kind of game night to make up for it.

I'd like to call this kind of format the Game Night Scramble! We're going to select four different platforms and games for one night. Just about every GameSpot member should have a chance to participate on their primary platform at least once this month.

June Schedule

Week 1 cancelled [June 2]: No game night planned because staff will be attending E3 (e3.gamespot.com). However, I may dhave some kind of E3/GameSpot trivia similar to the zombie one. This way you all have something to do while we're in Los Angeles covering the event.  

Week 2 [June 9]: Post your recommendations for one or more platform for this week!  

Wii title:
Xbox 360 title:
PS3 title:
PC title:

Week 3 [June 16]: Post your recommendations for one or more platform for this week!  

Wii title:
Xbox 360 title:

Week 4 [June 23]: Post your recommendations for one or more platform for this week!

Week 5 [June 30]: Post your recommendations for one or more platform for this week!

Former Recommendations

Here is a list of games that were pulled from a variety of discussion threads we have in this board. You may recommend other games than what is listed. Note that we'll want to play a different games per platform for a given week. For example, if someone already requested to have SFIV PS3 game night on week 2, try requesting the SFIV 360 version on week 4.

UNO actually doesn't sound like a bad idea... it just might get a little boring.

But theres a 4 person limit isn't there? I guess it could work out well, but sounds a little pedestrian.

Well Street Fighter is only 1 v 1 and some people played 4 player co-op in L4D. So I don't really see a problem. Plus the matches are short so it will be easy to switch in and out of games.

Diablo 2 sounds great. The original Diablo 2 - not the LoD version. That way we can all start from scratch, or whatever. Also F.E.A.R.? Both are PC games, I don't care which week. I'm actually having a week off work for E3 so I can catch everything online, so maybe nothing for the following week either?

I'd be down for Diablo 2 at any time (provided we start from scratch, I don't have any characters on US realms.)

For the Xbox 360, I'd recommend 2 XBLA games: Uno and Castle Crashers. I'm sure a lot of users have both those games. FEAR 2 isn't so bad either.

I have an idea that I would like some feedback on. As a game night how about a party on PlayStation Home? Everyone with a PS3 has access to it so chances on a good turnout would be high. We could socialize in someones apartment. We could all launch into seperate games, so it works towards everyone's convieniance. For the Bounty Hunter emblem we could play a game of Ultimate Hide and Seek. After all isnt a Bounty Hunter's job to "seek" someone out? I think we could have a lot of fun with this. My idea may need a bit of tweeking but it could work well. So yes, I reccomend PlayStation Home for a game night.

Here are my recommendations..

For all consoles...

MK vs. DC Universe,

Unreal Tournament three,

any Call of Duties.

Another Left 4 Dead

I have a decent Idea. Mortal Kombat 3 on xbox live is only 400 points and can have up to four people in a room at once. We could do that.

I'd also through some support for MK vs DC Universe. Lord of the Rings Conquest has some decent online modes too.

We could divide up the countries. Have a Europe and US game night instead of one big one. This helps with time zone issues as well.

What are the chances we could convince some of the admin for UK to host an "unofficial" game night for people in the UK? Slim probably but who knows.

Left 4 Dead survival would be cool :D

 

Of course, Game Nights could definitely use more fighting games like MK vs DC, Dead or Alive 4, Soul Calibur 4, Fight Night Round 3....

Yeah, the L4D game night was only this year too, so it was pretty recent. Although survival would make a great game night, there must be something different we can play.
