The lights are on
It's just like high school, only instead of segmenting off into the jocks, band geeks, skids, nerds, and other, you can form your clan groups around your favorite shotgun or whatever. You're all still nerds no matter how you slice it.
You're probably going to be playing the new Black Ops map pack this
weekend anyway, just make sure you clear your Saturday afternoon for a
bit so we can get another GIO ownage session going!
FragFest 3.1 - Xbox 360 Exclusive Event
Call of Duty: Black Ops - Escalation Map Pack
Saturday 7th, starting 12:00 Noon PST (3:00 PM EST)
This is an Xbox 360 exclusive bonus event, so if you wish to attend please post your XBL Gamertag below
along with the time-frame you will be playing. The evening before the
event, once attendance information has all been compiled, I will post
another blog and forum post in the Clans group (the Frag-Fest impromptu hub, be sure and join the group for up-to-date info) with grouping details.
Any community members willing and able to play the role of party
leader, or if you are able to capture video footage, please make a note
of that when posting your attendance info below.
Hope to see you guys there.

What is GIO Frag-Fest?: A
monthly meeting for the GameInformer.com online community. Different
people attend for different reasons, but in the end it's all about the
camaraderie... through bloodshed.
How are the games for each event chosen?: In
an attempt to keep things fresh, each months event is chosen based upon
recently released games. You play your favorite games all the time, why
not try something new every month with your GIO pals?!
Do the events follow a schedule?:
The last Saturday of every month, start time of 14:00 PST. Mark your
calendars! (This bonus round breaks away from that standard obviously,
but... it's a bonus!)
What happens on the day of the event exactly?: Predesignated party leaders will send invites to attendees. Once the groups are together, throw on your headset and have fun ;)
A new game every month, I can't afford this!:
GameFly is your friend! If you're not already a member, try it out!
Introductory rates of just 10$ for your first month and 17$ after
that... get over 3 months of rentals for less than the price of a new
game - why not!? Or... you could even pick up the title used at your
local GameStop, and bring it back within 7 days for a full refund.
You've got options!

I'm down for this. My gamertag is LOCOPELAND. I'll most likely be online before noon PST.
I haven't really played too many matches on the maps...so I'm not expecting to be super good or anything, though
I am down if I can get permission from the wifey! Wulfman23
I could be on Blops, but I don't play the game enough anymore to justify buying the map pack.
@waddledee187 - That MW2 burnout will hit you sooner or later... I hope
