Saturday Afternoon Delight: G3 Charity Edition



Good day, good people. It's the weekend, and that means whatever you want it to mean. Over here, it means there are videogames to be played and drinks to be drunk. Today in particular, it also means that G3 is happening. If you're not already aware, manasteel88 is once again heading up the charge. So today not only can you play games, but you can play them with awesome people on stream and donate to a wonderful cause should you choose to.
They have a slew of great games to both play and give away, if you donate. Should they make their goal of $1000, they''ll be giving away those tasty games. Full details over here

So, today there is ostensibly a whole shitload of stuff to play. The schedule, along with gamertag/PSNIDs/steam name is RIGHT HERE Y'ALL.
Let's have fun and support some good stuff.



SAND is like Friday Night Fights, with a couple of pointed differences:

1) Things are not restricted to "the evening."
2) We actively encourage older games/games not in the FNF rotation. (We encourage, but really, what's fun is fun.)
3) It's on Saturday!

It's an extension I felt was needed. FNF is great fun, but the rest of the weekend is probably better for getting together for some online gaming.

Remember, new peoples, anybody is free to host whatever they please. Just give us the game name, time (in EST, preferably) and GT/PSNID/Friend code.


Today's eventicals




Game: A whole bunch O' stuff.
Time: All day and night
Hosts: The Twinfinite Crew




Game: SSX and Persona 4 Arena
Time: All day baby
Host: JPNags PSNID: Yourfacedotcom

Saturday Afternoon Delight: What Problem? Edition


What? No, I don't think it's too early to be drunk. Now get away from my wine before I chop that hand off. some people...

*sips*Oh, right; you people. What are you looking at? You know where you are: This is the place where we get together for gaming times with your fellows on the weekend. Good stuff. *sips* It looks like we're lacking a bit as far as hosts go this week, but we're here all day. All weekend, really. I'm not certain, but it looks like we might just merge the Saturday & Sunday thing together. Sound like a good idea? *sips*

Cool. So if anyone feels like hosting, do tell. Enjoy your weekend! *sips*

Saturday Afternoon Delight: Ceremony Edition


Did you watch the opening ceremonies of the olympics? This is kind of like that, except we don't have anything to do with the olympics and we don't have ceremonies and we exclusively play videogames which aren't in the olympics (yet) and you don't get any medals and Paul McCartney isn't allowed here under any circumstances. See? Just like it.

Come play some fucking videogames or don't.

Saturday Afternoon Delight: Round 2 Edition


Well, well. I'm glad to say we're back after a very successful first week! We had very short notice, but ended with 4/5 different games played! Good show, good show. Looks like Saturday is indeed alright for fighting.
This week, we're staring even earlier, and are playing something that I know some of y'all have. Left 4 Dead 2. This is as good a time as any to get that going again, as more DLC will be hitting soon. That sweet, sweet DLC. That would be all of the L4D1 maps, and the fan-made mod Cold Stream. I am ready.

Oh, and don't forget the other new weekend event: Sunday Funday.* Our buddy PhilK3nS3bb3n is spearheading that, and hosting again tomorrow.
*Name subject to ch-ch-ch-changes
Cue the music.

Destructoid Saturday Afternoon Delight

See what I did there? Like Friday Night Fights! Super clever, probably. Cleverity aside, it is what it sounds like. I love FNF, I do, but it's just not the best time to get together for videogamin'. With that in mind, and garethxxgod's blueprint in hand, I've decided to finally make an attempt to use Saturday for the same get-together purposes. The only major differences from FNF being:

1) It doesn't have to take place at night. Any time is fine.
2) I'm actively encouraging hosting games that aren't in the regular FNF rotation.
3) It's on Saturday.

Sound good? I hope it does. I know it's short notice, but we're more lax here. So take a chill. Bill.
It's a work in progress, so I'm lacking some decent headers and whatnot, but it will be remedied by next week. So take another pill.

This will be the forum thread to check out for today's activity. If you want to host something else, please, let them know there or in the comments here. We will update as necessary. Welcome to the first SAND sessions.

Today (06/30/12) These fine games will be hosted by these fine people:




Game: Peace Walker HD (PS3)
Host: smurfee mcgee PSNID: smurfee_mcgee
Time: 5 p.m. EST and 9 p.m. EST


Game: DOOM or Marathon: Durandal
Host: tarvu GT: Tarvu, The Kinky Ninja


Game: Resident Evil: ORC
Time: 6pm and 12am <--both EST
Host: PhilK3nS3bb3n
PSN: MickGuerrera


Game: Unreal Tournament 3
Time: 11pm EST
Host: PhilK3nS3bb3n
PSN: MickGuerrera
