Some of you may know me from my Red Dead Redemption Fun Nights, while others may know me from the Capcom Europe Forums, but starting next Tuesday I'll be running Twisted Metal Fun Nights every Tuesday at 7.30pm!
Before I go into the usual rules and regulations of treating each other with respect, I'd like to tell you how my Fun Night will work. So, allow me to explain:
The Fun Night itself will begin on Tuesday 13th November
This will give people time to free their busy work schedules up and also, everyone loves to be notified in advance, so consider this your notification!
How the point system works
Each player will gain points depending on where they place on the kill board (Leaderboard) each week.
Points will be allocated depending on how many players participate each week.
1st place - 16 points
2nd - 15 points
3rd - 14 points
4th - 13 points
5th - 12 points
6th - 11 points
7th - 10 points
8th - 9 points
9th - 8 points
10th - 7 points
11th - 6 points
12th - 5 points
13th - 4 points
14th - 3 points
15th - 2 points
16th - 1 point
1st place - 8 points
2nd - 7 points
3rd - 6 points
4th - 5 points
5th - 4 points
6th - 3 points
7th - 2 points
8th - 1 point
I know a lot of people have found it hard adjusting to the controls of Twisted Metal, but they're very simple so allow me to break them down for you!
Accelerate (Double Tap for Turbo)
Brake (Double Tap to Reverse)
Tight Turn (Hold to Handbrake Turn)
Switch between Standard and Alternate Fire
/ Switch Weapons
Up - Freeze
Down - Rear Fire
Left - Mine
Right - Shield
+ Headlights On/Off
+ Open Doors (Juggernaut only)
R3 - Changes Target
Select - Changes Camera
Movement During Flight - The Left Stick is used for moving Forward, Back, strafing left and strafing right, while the Right Stick is used for moving Up, Down, looking left and looking right.
Every 6 months your points will be tallied and the person with the most points will receive a little something. This may be in digital form or physical, but I'll be trying to arrange prizes for this (with the mods), so stay tight chap and chapettes!
Now, this is intended to be a fun experience for everyone, so don't be afraid to join in with the fun as people of all skill levels are welcome and free to participate in this weekly fun night. Plus, you never know, I may just have a little something for you via a PM, depending on how well you play, how fun you make the game for others and other little random things like that, not mentioned!
Now for the boring bit...
1. Treat everyone with respect and in a friendly manner.
2. NO CHEATING. I trust you and know you wouldn't, so that's ok.....RIGHT?
3. Swearing at each other is an absolute no-no, so please feel free to PM me if you are having trouble with someone and if it persists, that person may no longer be allowed to participate in future events....However, it shouldn't come to this, so just enjoy blowing each other up!
4. Add me (CaptainCortez) to PSN, so you can join my games without any problems.
Finally, before getting started, make sure your console is connected to the internet, and works fine online!
Not sure how to do this? Read on Clowns!
On the following two links you'll have simple explanations on how to set up a wired (or wireless) connection and which settings you should change, in order to get the best perfomance out of both your console, and internet connection:
Please Note: You may also need to change the settings on your router, and usually you'll need to allow your PS3's MAC Address before it will let you play online. Please check your router manual on how to do this.
If you have any further questions, or would like a more detailed explanation, then fire away in the specially dedicated "Technical Help" section, located on the forums, here:
See you all in two Tuesday's time!

It took me a couple of hours yesterday, where I was jumping between photoshop, google and the forums, trying to find and make decent images for the post (including all of the little square, x, o, L1 button images) and it's unfortunate it's starting on the same day as Black Op's 2 releases, but hopefully 8 people at least will participate in this.
I'm planning on doing a God of War Ascension Fun Night when that releases too, as I'm a huge God of War fan and still have Sunday evenings free, so when that's up, I'll have submitted an article to every issue of the Community Magazine, should have a Dead Space 3 Q&A with Steve Papoutsis arranged after its release, will hopefully have enough interest to keep this going and be running a God of War Fun Night.
I've also got Black Op's 2 on pre-order but mainly for 8 player Zombies!
Hopefully see you next Tuesday, Yas?

This is just a reminder that I'm running this tomorrow night, so don't forget to add me on PSN (CaptainCortez) and I'll hopefully see you all tomorrow!

Haha, nah I've not forgotten about this. I was just hoping I'd see more replies in this thread, but feel free to tell as many people as you know about it and hopefully we can make up those numbers for a 16 player online battle!
See you tomorrow!

I'll join in.I imported it at launch,but because of the issues I gave up on the online side after two weeks.Also the lack of EU numbers meant high pings.
Not very good at it,because i've put s little time into it.
I had hoped Sony would of put this up as a free plus game,think it would of helped the online more.

Well, I'll be creating a private game most likely, so hopefully we won't have that issue!
Remember to add me, else I can't invite you in.

That's an option too, but I'll be playing about with things around 4pm tomorrow, so keep an eye on this thread, because if it turns out it's better to put a password on the lobby, I'll be posting full details here.
