Official NWR WiFi Night - November 5 - Nomination Thread
« on: October 20, 2008, 04:46:50 PM »
So, I think it's officially time to retry the official NWR WiFi night concept.  My idea right now is that the first Wednesday of every month will be set aside to try and get everyone online.

Prior to that day, we will have two threads.  The first one will be for game nominations, and the second one will be for voting on which game gets played.

That way, we'll all be on the same game, regardless of what it is.  Once a game is decided on, we will have another special thread compiled of friend codes of only people participating that night

So, consider this the nomination thread.  I'm going to get things rolling with a nomination for Mario Kart Wii!

I think that's an excellent choice, Pale.  Almost everybody has it and enjoys it, and as far as I know it plays well online for nearly everyone.

Wonderful idea. I'll game, and Mario Kart would've been my choice, too. I'm gonna need to double-check to make sure I've got everyone's Mario Kart code (add me if you haven't!) and let's ROLL!
This would be my PSN Trophy Card, but I guess I can't post HTML in my Signature. I'm the pixel spaceship, and I have nine Gold trophies.

Bomberman Blast.  It's cheap ($10) and anyone who doesn't have it should be able to easily purchase it within the next couple weeks.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

I guess it may be too early for Guitar Hero World Tour, but I will nominate it for December.

Besides Mario Kart, I'd also nominate Brawl -- it has been months since I played it, and I'd like to see if the lag has improved (and if my skills have withered).

My idea right now is that the first Wednesday of every month will be set aside to try and get everyone online.

I'd like to suggest that the day (and even the week) shouldn't always be consistent.  People might work late on Wednesdays or they might travel for work on the first week of every month and this would prevent them from participating.  I think it would be better to hold the event every 2 or 3 weeks and to mix up the day every time.

I'm gonna buy it by then.

But if we put 15 people online the network is gonna eat it again! ;)

Mario Kart would be my number one due to the fact that the online component works really well.
As for others, I'll nominate Tetris Party and second Jonny's GH:WT nominee despite my preference to Rock band.

I second the Bomberman Blast!

Cheap, fun, lag free (at least till now), easy to get into and hard to put down.

This is a cool idea and I'll put my vote in for Mario Kart as well as Brawl because like Jonny I haven't played in a while and want to see the lag again. Maybe it's not so bad anymore.

I'm gonna go with Brawl and Pokemon.  With GH's online, there seems to be very little "character."  You can say "WOW, you're good," but that's the limit of what's shared.

Also...you might want to do some sort of freeplay thing every once in a while, just get a bunch of NWR's online, and let them pick what to play.

My top picks would be Bomberman and Mario Kart, but I'm no good at one and out of practice with the other. Either way, count me in.

Also, you know, it has 12-player support.

Yes that is another thing to consider the number of players the game allows. More people less people that has to wait.

Third. I dont know if i played the same night as you guys, but seeing the lot of you online during the first few days of MK launch was pretty sweet. I havent played that or Brawl since so either way i'll suck at a game, but MK wii will get my vote.

GH:WT will be cool too, even if its just me, Johnny, and nron10!

also, wheres the love for Mario Strikers Charged!!! You should all be ashamed of yourselves ;)
