The seventh star

Brucie, I want to shoot you in the face

I was going to type up a whole thing, about GTA4, but then I'd be typing and not playing and... fuck that. Besides, what am I going to say that you haven't already read in every review out there. Nah, I'll talk about it eventually, but now playing is more important. Besides, I'm on vacation.

Planning a Ctrl+Alt+Del GameDay for this evening. Will probably do a few this week, so don't worry if you can't get in right away. I cleared a ton of space on my friends list (I really wish XBL would let you just purchase extra friend slots), so go ahead and send me an invite. I'll probably be removing anyone not playing GTA4, just so there is room for people that want to try and get in on the GameDay.

So... that's it. I guess I'll see a bunch of you in Liberty City this evening. We'll fuck some shit up. It'll be fun. Now back to the game before I wither and die.

GTA4 GameDay

GameDay went pretty well. Unfortunately my friends list filled back up a few hours after I emptied it, so I apologize to those who couldn't send an friend request.

Around 7pm, and periodically thereafter, I started randomly inviting people to join, and we played for a little over three hours. We played all sorts of different game modes, including a melee-weapons-only team deathmatch for about twenty minutes. Though since you can't completely turn off cars, it quickly devolved into a nasty case of road rage. Basically, if you didn't have a car, you didn't last more than a couple of minutes. This mayhem was followed by a rocket-launchers-only game with traffic on high. We managed to drop the frame-rate quite a bit with all of the explosions we were causing.

All in all, it was pretty fun. I'll try and set something up for tomorrow night, once I know what my plans are. I'll post here on the front page if I'm going to start up a game.
