In case you didn't know, and you were living under a rock all week, the Atlanta office for CCP was shut down Monday. For those of you that don't know, I used to work with those people. It was an odd feeling knowing that the place you got your start in doing what you love is now no more. Tearing up just thinking about it, actually. As I write this Thursday night, they are having one last hurrah before the ones that already have new jobs move to their new cities. That office was full of the best of the best, and it is a damn shame the project was shut down. I honestly thought I would go back to work there, but now it won't ever happen.
That said, I am heartwarmed by the outpouring of support for those let go, it reminds me of why I love the games industry so much. Even with all of its questionable business practices, the backbone of the industry is full of amazing people who just want to make others happy.
Now, on to the games :)
Welcome to the PlayStation side of Friday Night Fights! Every Friday, members of the community get together online to play games and all you need to join is a user account. Down below, you'll find a list of games that we'll play tonight along with the times they'll start, the people that you should hit up for invites, and any other information that you may need.
If you want to play, leave a comment with the games from the schedule you want to play and your PSN name. You should also send a PSN friend request to the host and mention your username here in the message so they know you're one of the cool people and not just some random friend request.
If your favorite game isn't on the schedule, host it yourself! You just need to give us the game, start time, and your PSN name so people know what, when and who. It's also wise to list DLC requirements, game or server names, and anything else people might need to join just so you don't need to message it to everyone individually. Last minute additions in the comments here are fine, but games can also be added earlier in the week by visiting the forums and finding the thread with the coming Friday's date. Adding a game there ensures it's on the blog from the moment it goes up.
All times Eastern.
