Recap & Screens: Episodes from Liberty City Social Club Multiplayer Event on Games for Windows Live (October 20th)
(Absolute multiplayer bedlam. A pair of Buzzards knock debris into a flaming car, with the ensuing explosion thrusting GwRockstar3 into
the sky - during our Episodes from Liberty City PC multiplayer throwdown held October 20th on Games for WIndows Live...)
Thanks to everyone that participated in the Episodes from Liberty City event held on Wednesday October 20th on Games for Windows Live, whether you were playing with or against us online, discussing the play-by-plays in the chat or watching the live video stream. Look for a full recap of our back-to-back Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare Launch Events later this week.
Our next event will be November 11th for Red Dead Redemption on Xbox 360, featuring the new multiplayer modes from the new Undead Nightmare DLC - "Undead Overrun" co-op zombie killin' and "Land Grab" in Free Roam. Make sure to also check out the full Oct-Dec calendar in the Social Club Multiplayer Events Series for all live stream events planned through the rest of the year.
Read on for a full recap our our Episodes PC mayhem from October 20th - followed by screens of just a few wild moments.
We began our Liberty City session in The Lost and Damned with Team Deathmatch in Prison. Things began with PihtoDed running along the upper walkway, using the high ground to take down our own GwRockstar3 and GwRockstar4. Later, Alekc Holland and TouchedExpert rounded the corner in the courtyard only to find a hail of gunfire flying their way, courtesy of GwRockstar1. In the end, PihtoDed, Alekc Holland, TouchedExpert and team claimed first blood victory with $4,783, 45 kills and 20 deaths.
Races were up next, and we chose to ride out on the track 'Ramped Up' with Cars in three laps. During an early part of lap two, jimmyt1988 was unwisely standing outside his car and about to get back in when GwRockstar1 sped up behind and sandwiched him between both vehicles. Ouch. After all was said and done, first prize was awarded to IvanGTAIV who raced all three laps in a best time of 4:17:62.
Before switching episodes, we started up a lobby for Lone Wolf Biker in Bohan with the Powerful weapons class. A bit into the match, taxidriver555 was being chased by just about everyone up a hill as he did whatever possible to flee and keep his time racking up. Some of his fancy maneuvering near the shore even caused our own GwRockstar2 to crash straight into the water. In the end, taxidriver555 prevailed and proved to be the best player with $876 in 1:45:12.
From there, we jumped into The Ballad of Gay Tony's multiplayer modes, getting straight into the tightly-packed area of buildings known as Funland in Deathmatch. GwRockstar1 and IvanGTAIV had a few close combat moments, one of which appears in the screens below. It was IvanGTAIV though who ended with the best score of the round at 28-9.
We then held a few different races, first with GUSSI111 nailing first with $1,350 in 3:34:95 after three laps on the track 'Club Class'. Then in GTA Races with APC's, ISI Thuga won one, and the ubiquitous taxidriver555 won the next. And in the final race of the afternoon, FestenGTA4 zoomed across the finish line before anyone else on the track 'Tar Macked', pulling it off in 4:39:74. Grats to you all.
In grand and customary Social Club Multiplayer Events tradition, we closed things out by gathering in Free Mode for an anarchic cavalcade of explosions, gunfire, Buzzards and boats. The screen at the top of this recap as well as the bottom one with the two cars are both from the wild time spent blasting each other high into the sky and forming gangs on the streets...
Check out screens of some memorable moments during the afternoon:
(In this destructive version of rock, paper, scissors - GwRockstar1 absolutely crushes PENDULUM RULIT during a race in The Lost and Damned.)
(GwRockstar1 turns the corner during a race, being chased by kettavan and FlashGTA10, who apparently got his bus to do a wheelie.)
(GwRockstar1 fires on taxidriver555 during Lone Wolf Biker in The Lost and Damned.)
