X3F Live invades Battlefield, update on features [Update]

Update: After playing a single online game, EA's servers booted us right out of play and wouldn't allow us to reconnect. We'll reschedule a real event soon.

You may have noticed some of our regular features have been MIA in recent weeks. In order to prepare for E3 and make time (and room) for special features, some of our content has been put on a temporary hiatus. Until the madness that is E3 subsides we're putting a hold on Community Content, Would You Rather and Points>Life -- technically, just Xav. You may see random special editions of our content during the event as special bonuses, but we're just giving you the heads up incase you were wondering where your favorite feature is.

As you may be aware, if you listened to the latest X3F Fancast -- Richard, Dustin and Alexander will be bringing the show on the road with special podcasts as E3 progresses. It's another way we're keeping everyone at home up to date while allowing the home crew to recharge the batteries.

One thing we can't put on hold for now is X3F Live and considering the popularity of Battlefield: Bad Company on our friends list we're going to be game hunting later tonight (again, just Xav). So tonight from 9 to 10 PM EST watch out for Gamertag: Snypz and hopefully we can cause some mayhem together. This isn't an organized event, but Xav is looking for some game time before the craziness takes over!

X3F Live: Halo 3 Tonight @ 9:30PM EST [Update]

Update: X3F Live has ended for the night. Thank you for joining us and stay tuned for more X3F Live events in the future!

In order to make up for yesterday's failed attempt to play Team Fortress 2 due to game crashes, we're throwing down in a little Halo 3 action tonight starting at 9:30PM EST! Unfortunately not everyone will be available to play but those of us that bring you the news you crave (and some you don't) will be partying up for some custom game action.

As usual add X3FLIVE to your friends list and use the Friends of Friends feature to track down Richard (SenseiRam), Dustin (SuperDunners), Alexander (Sli Xander) and/or Xav (Snypz) and try to jump into an open session. Anyone start a "Save Terrence's Internets" petition yet?

If you can't get X3FLIVE on your friends list and really want to jump in with us, send Xav (Gamertag: Snypz) a message over Xbox Live requesting an invite and we'll send one your way sometime throughout the night.

X3F Live Online Now! [Update]

Update: Well, it seems that no internet was any match for a decent game of Team Fortress 2. All of us (Xav, Richard and Dustin) attempted to get a game going but twice it crashed and once it was so laggy your character went for a swim in the 2Fort water without your permission! So. That in mind, tomorrow night at 9:30 PM - 11:30 PM we're going to host a roundtable of Halo 3 madness! Join us tomorrow and let us all thank Team Fortress 2's bad connection for a great time! Thaaaaaaaaank Youuuuuuuuu.

Just so the entire night isn't a bust. Some of our team are going to play some random online games and would love for you to join up. If you see any of us online playing, drop us a line and request an invite!

Original Post: That's right kids. Right now you are invited to jump onto Xbox Live and partake in some quality games of Bomberman Live and Team Fortress 2!

As usual add X3FLIVE to your friends list and use the Friends of Friends feature to track down Richard (SenseiRam), Dustin (SuperDunners), Alexander (Sli Xander) and/or Xav (Snypz) and try to jump into an open session. We still need to set up a telethon to save Terrence's internets.

So to recap. Just join the game in progress and if you don't find your way in send Xav (Gamertag Snypz) a message requesting to be invited. We are going to try and get as many people in the game as possible!

Reminder: X3F LIVE tonight!

Community, listen up. Tonight at 9:30 PM EST we're throwing down on some Bomberman Live and Team Fortress 2 in another edition of X3F Live. Browse through your ridiculously long list of XBLA titles, dust off those copies of The Orange Box and prepare yo'self for a few games of each when we play Bomberman Live from 9:30-10:30PM and then switch to Team Fortress 2 from 10:30-11:30PM!

As usual add X3FLIVE to your friends list and use the Friends of Friends feature to track down Richard (SenseiRam), Dustin (SuperDunners), Alexander (Sli Xander) and/or Xav (Snypz) and try to jump into an open session. We still need to set up a telethon to save Terrence's internets.

This week I (that's Xav, Gamertag: Snypz) will be hosting the games so, if you're online and haven't been invited to a game send me a message and we'll try to get you in throughout the night.

See ya online!

X3F LIVE: Bomberman Live & Team Fortress 2

We had so much fun playing Gears of War and Uno on Monday that we decided we're not going to wait another six months before our next X3F LIVE event. On Monday, June 16, we're handpicking two other titles from last week's poll and choo-choo-choosing it for another round of X3F LIVE madness.

Prepare yourself for another onslaught of gaming with the team at X3F (if you so choose) where we'll partake in a little Bomberman Live from 9:30 - 10:30PM EST and then retire to Team Fortress 2 from 10:30 - 11:30PM EST.

More details to come on Monday, but as usual add X3FLIVE to your friends list and use the Friends of Friends feature to track down Richard (SenseiRam), Dustin (SuperDunners), Alexander (Sli Xander) and/or Xav (Snypz). Someone really needs to get Terrence some new, Xbox Live compatible internets!

X3F LIVE: Online now! [Update]

Update: The event has now ended. Thanks to everyone who participated and stay tuned for another X3F LIVE event in the near future!

Drop your keyboard. Throw your monitor out the window. Pop in your dusty old copy of Gears of War. X3F LIVE is online now. Join us online in Uno from 9:30PM EST until 10:30PM for some hot card-on-card action and then stick around for a chainsaw fest in Gears of War from 10:30PM EST until 11:30PM.

Most of the gang is here and we're eager to play with the community. Add X3FLIVE to your friends list and track down Richard (SenseiRam), Dusin (SuperDunners), Alexander (Sli Xander) and Xav (Snypz)-- join the social gaming night as the night progresses and have a blast!

Game on people!

X3F LIVE hits Uno and Gears tonight!

The votes are in and a recount isn't necessary. Gears of War swept up the competition claiming the top spot for tonight's gaming session; with Uno leading the charge for Xbox Live Arcade. Originally we were going to have a dedicated Gears of War marathon tonight but the rest of the team has fond memories of Uno and decided to throw it in hour numero one (you thought I was going to day Uno didn't you?).

Tonight look out for the following gamertags and join the gaming sessions in progress, the games will be open and we hope you can jump in to play around!

Add X3FLIVE to your friend list and use the Friends of Friends feature to spot the rest of the crew online! If you'd like to join us online spot the rest of the crew (Gamertags below) and join our gaming sessions!

Uno -- 9:30-10:30 PM EST
SenseiRam (Richard)*
Sli Xander (Alexander)*
Snypz (Xav)
SuperDunners (Dustin)
(each gamertag will host their own game)

*Richard and Alexander are going to try to make it for the Uno portion of the event

Gears of War -- 10:30-11:30 PM EST
Snypz -- In one hosted room
Scheduled to play: Richard, Dustin, Xav

Check back here at X3F at 9 PM EST for a reminder of the event and any last minute detail changes! We look forward to chainsawing you later tonight!

X3F LIVE: What do you want to play?

It's been a busy few days around X3F Towers so we need to get some quality gaming time in! In lieu of a Community Content post (no ComCon today folks, sorry) we're having a poll to decide which game we're going to play for our next X3F LIVE event.

The event is scheduled for 9:30-11:30PM EST on Monday, June 9.

Since our previous two events were centered around Halo 3 and GTAIV we're omitting those two picks from the list. Let's try something new this week! Don't worry thought, we're planning on having another one real soon!

Now, before you read the choices. Not every hot title is on it, we're skipping some key titles based on what the staff has kicking around in their collection. So, no Call of Duty 4 or PGR4. But, maybe next time!

X3F LIVE: June 9, 2008

Reminder: X3F LIVE tonight!

We're thirty minutes from another, but not frequent enough, gaming session with our awesome community. A few people have mentioned problems adding the X3FLIVE gamertag to their friends list so we've come up with an idea to fix that issue.

At around 8:45PM tonight we're going to go through our X3FLIVE friends list and drop a handful of people who aren't online. If you'd like to join us just fire up your Xbox to stay on the list and for those of you who are getting request bounce backs will be able to add us.

We're going to go through our list and play with a handful of people and then end the session and play with others. We'll send out the invites, so if you're interested in playing make sure to be in GTAIV (that way we know not to disturb a Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3 session). If you don't get an invite right away join up with other people on our Friends of Friends list and we'll try to get to you.

We know this isn't the best system, but its the fairest way around the 100 friend limit on Xbox Live.

We're going to do sessions of Cops vs. Crooks with Auto-Aim disabled, so bring your 'A' game--cuz we sure as hell won't! We look forward to stealing your car and running you over with it later tonight!

X3F LIVE visits Liberty City [Update 2]

Update 2: Our community friends list is currently full. Tonight at 8:45PM EST we will be deleting some people who aren't online to make room for any last minute people who would like to add us and get into the game.

Our community gamertag, X3FLIVE, has been cleared of all friends and are now accepting requests for the event beginning at 9PM EST. If you've had issues adding us in the past it should be all cleared up now. In order to play with as many people as we can, who are interested that is, we're alternating players between rounds. We like to be fair! We look forward to shooting you in the face.

Original Post: You've been asking for it and now we're delivering. On Monday, May 19, at 9PM EST until 11PM EST join the Xbox 360 Fanboy crew of hooligans as we paint Liberty City red.

On the agenda is a healthy dose of Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer where we'll invite new players every round.

Make sure to watch out for the Gamertag X3FLIVE, add it to your friends list and join us for an X3F Approved Crime Spree!

Recap: X3F LIVE's visit into 2Fort

On Friday evening X3F LIVE made it's triumphant return with an hour long romp in 2Fort, from last week's Community Content. While the initial match of multi-flag went horribly wrong due to my inability to set a time limit, Xbox Live's wonky server issues and the horde of X3F readers attempting to get into the 16-player game, the event ended nicely with four solid rounds of single-flag.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated in the event and promise you won't have to wait long for another X3F LIVE evening.

X3F Live: Halo 3 tonight and our new Social Gamertag for the X3F Army

Update: To clarify, tonight's match will be hosted by Xav using the Gamertag X3FLIVE. Look for that match at 8PM EST.

No need to adjust your vision loyal X3F soldiers. Tonight, in a rare non-achievement boosting event, X3F will host X3F Live. Tonight's event? An hour long romp in 2Fort Classic from this week's Community Content!

Tonight at 8PM EST join some of the crew in, what is sure to be an epic 8v8 match of multi flag carnage in Halo 3 using our user submitted downloadable content*!

But that's not all. While our friends lists have been filled to the brim we realized there may be very little interaction between the readers so we've magicked up a solution that's been around for a while.

Simply add the gamertag X3FLIVE to your Xbox 360 Friends List and you'll be able to see when other X3F readers are online using the "Friends of Friends" feature! Now, coordinate gaming sessions with your fellow X3F Army recruits any time you go online!

We'll open the game at 8PM EST and the first readers to join will be able to play a few rounds, and then we'll cycle a new game for a new batch of readers. That is if anyone can make it to our very short notice session at all!

*In order to play 2Fort Classic you are required to download the Halo 3 Heroic Map Pack, which is available on the Xbox Live Markeplace for free!

Recap: X3F Live and Maybe Next Time Buddy

We did it guys! It was a huge success! Last night's Maybe Next Time Buddy X3F Live event (where we went on a mission to earn a certain achievement) was an overwhelming success as achievements were unlocked and I personally obtained 1000 Gamerscore in Halo 3. Woohooza! Click your way towards the break to read a detailed account of the event as well as view some screenshots featuring commentary (thanks to our new gallery system) and a crazy cool panorama shot. What are you waiting for guys? Get your click on ...

X3F Live: Maybe Next Time Buddy

I've put it off for way too long, I've procrastinated a bit too much, but tonight I'm going for it. With your help of course. Tonight at 9:30PM eastern (6:30PM pacific) I hope you'll join me as I make my way onto Xbox Live, play some Rumble Pit Halo 3 and finally try and earn my final Halo 3 achievement ... Maybe Next Time Buddy.

I'll need a few dedicated fanboys to join me in my adventure as we'll veto our way through Rumble Pit in an effort to get a vehicle equipped multiplayer map to appear (I believe Snowbound is the only option). It'll be rough as one cannot be sure when the correct map will appear, but we'll be diligent in our quest for Maybe Next Time Buddy glory. Shoot me a friend request (SuperDunners) and hop into my Halo 3 party tonight at 9:30PM eastern when this Maybe Next Time Buddy edition of X3F Live goes down.

Also, due to there being only one of me and only seven five other slots in the Rumble Pit party, we could possibly setup other Maybe Next Time Buddy achievement parties. If you're interested in hosting a Rumble Pit match whose goal is to earn this coveted Halo 3 achievement, simply comment below with your Gamertag, what time you'll be hosting and I'll update this post with the information. We'll make this the biggest, baddest and most successful Maybe Next Time Buddy achievement unlocking night EVAR! W00t!

Reminder: X3F Live goes down tonight

Listen up kids, because in less than one hour we and all the cool kids will be heading online to play Halo 3 as part of our very special Xbox Live birthday edition of X3F Live. If you're not too busy and can find room to schedule us in, make your way onto Xbox Live tonight at 7:30PM eastern to join Richard (SenseiRAM), Dustin (SuperDunners) and David (Knuckles Dawson) for some FPS fun and cake*. We promise to play nice and make lots of corny "wort, wort, wort" jokes. Tonight, 7:30PM eastern ... be there.

*We don't actually have cake, because Richard forgot to bake one.
