    its up to the person who runs the weekend, try contacting that person. however, as i stated in two areas of the first post, any game on-topic is allowed. just post what you want to play and when people read this thread they may also join just to play with you. you can also show up on event night and ask if anyone wants to play a different game with you.

    jintrigger is just following the example i started when i took over wifi nite (for its short lived revival). you try to pick a selection of games that are fun and popular. you can't pick everything because the night would be very crazy with a bunch of people playing 20+ games and talking on IRC at one time. sadly, this is the down side to this event which is why there is always the statement that you can play anything and you don't have to stick to the games suggested.

    i'm going to show up and look for someone to play RC Pro AM II (NES) and NHL95 (GEN).

    Shouldn't we include 3DS in that list? It seems a little odd that it avoid it since it has just come out.

    I might pitch in by playing some Tetris DS. I'm decent at it, but I have never tried the DS version. Time to get out the Flashcard. [​IMG]

    Ffffff. My (15 years older than me & recently preggo) sister is borrowing my AK2i until she gets her own. This sucks. :/ Ah well, guess I'll have to stick with losing some more SSFIV matches or playing Halo. Oops, didn't read the Wii/DS/Retro rule.

    jintrigger and i were discussing this. i left it out at first because neither of us have the wifi games and weren't sure which ones were WFC and which were local only. i do believe that SFIV and Samurai Showdown are WFC so we are adding those to the event night! =)

    Pretty sure it's only SSFIV that has wifi gaming. (Assuming you meant Samurai Warriors: Chronicles, not Samurai Showdown.)

    nooo! i really want to play but there's no uk times again!!! Please could you put some reasonable GMT+0 times on the list for those of us in the UK/Europe that want to play. I know it is open 24/7 but that makes it really hard to find someone as people are online at different times.

    How come you guys never do Black Ops Wii? Wouldn't it be easier to set up since it doesn't use friend codes?

    Both Goldeneye and Black Ops are good, but IMHO Black Ops is better just because of the social features it has.
