    Hiya - don't know if I'm just being blind, but I can't see anything scheduled for tonight.

    If anybody else is game, I'm up for a bit of Far Cry 3 co-op.

    I'll log in at 8pm & see who else is around.

    If it doesn't happen, no worries - perhaps I'll get a bit of BF3 co-op in, instead.

    Cheers,
    Zoob

    End Game is out for Premium members Zoob, so you might struggle for players tonight. Sorry to be the Prophet Of Doom.

    Ah right. No worries.
    Maybe I'll get a bit of real life "gaming" or Ni no Kuni or even FC3 SP in instead.
    Quite fancy seeing Park Chan-wook's "Stoker" too, so plenty of options, if I have no friends ! ;)
    All good!

    The NFS: Most Wanted event is tonight instead of last week because of the big update.

    Finally! A combo of the old "leave everything unplugged for 10 minutes" & hard resets.

    Give me a shout as & when anybody is available & what you fancy playing.
    I'm easy whether it's FC3 or NFS.

    (Should have known better than to waste time for DNS settings, etc!)

    Apologies also to Martok - just realised that the title format is completely incorrect!

    Martok-
    Don't worry, it's near enough, the main thing is that events have dates & titles in so that folk know when they are on. :thumbup:

    No worries Yinkin, it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening although my comms dropped half-way through
    - probably a blessing in disguise. 1 swearie Scots character in-game is probably enough! :)

    I think Mick & I perfected the ol' assault/sniper 1-2 afterwards - good combo for mid-long range maps.

    Game game all round gents.

    Time ran out before before we managed to get through the last 2 maps so I still have "Rush Hour" and "Payback" to complete in co-op, if anybody is game another evening.

    (Also - I still need sort out tags, both in-game and here on the forum!)

    I popped on about quarter to 8 and no one was around. What time did you start?

    That was a fun night, shame it went so quick. :shock:

    Was good to get a game with Yinkin and also Dogstar. :thumbup:

    Thanks to Zoob for arranging and hosting. :thumbup:

    Ubisoft have really dropped a massive clanger by releasing this with the comms as shit as they are :rant: I know of at least 4 people who have traded this in because they got fed up with waiting for it to be sorted. If Farcry 2 is anything to go by they wont bother doing it either. :brick:
    Still it is fun and its nice to have a shooter that I dont totally suck at (not quite :D )

    Im always up for a co-op on this :thumbup:

    @Acegadets - sorry we missed you, session ended up kicking off around 9pm.

    Apologies for the delay - I was having network connectivity issues following a firmware update for my Time Capsule/Airport base station. I'd actually started logging in at 7pm when I'd been prompted to update!

    Thanks to Mick, Yinkin & Dogstar for joining me though - good times.

    @Mick - no problemo & I'll maybe catch you tonight or tomorrow, depending on what else is happening. I'm going to ze pub tomorrow but NOT planning on staying out all night, although I have taken Friday off! As far tonight, I really should spend sometime with my beloved but we'll see what happens...

    And yes, completely agree re: the comms.

    I'd thoroughly recommend we open a (text) chat room next time - it's much quicker than using the messaging system.

    Just wanted to add my thanks for arranging the game Zoob. Was really good fun although as Mick said the comms are bad. Couldn't hear you at all Zoob! :( I'm glad you reminded me about the "Scottish" character the accent is truly awful. Did they get an American to do it but only on certain words? Some of his dialogue sounded Cockney / god only knows!!!

    Sorry I was on late and missed you Ace. We were waiting for tradesmen to quote for work and he was an hour late which messed up my plans.

    Cheers Dogstar & aye, my comms actually completely dropped halfway through!

    Incidentally, I'm currently installing a 96MB patch, for anybody that intends to join any further MP action.
