Join us for our next live streaming session on Friday, March 18th from 4-7 PM Eastern when we'll be playing Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition on Xbox LIVE. See below for a recap with screens of several rounds of play from last Friday. We begin with a classic out under the hot sun - Gold Rush in Río Bravo...
Gold Rush started with a Standoff where RedDeadDev3 managed to nab the first kill, taking down BackHandB0b with a shot to the face. That was followed by ii x FLaMez defeating xFieryAssassinx, Miss Iza downing iR a g 7V a r and CYPRESS44, ii x FLaMez shooting sparky71a, nonos15 puncturing shaggy176, Activ3 Roost3r headshotting nonos15, Miss Iza executing RedDeadDev3, Cartman zombie taking Activ3 Roost3r, Miss Iza and Katie0391 to the dirt, Rad McAwesome snagging a headshot off ii x FLaMez and finally Cartman zombie. Got all that? If you did, you can figure by deduction that Rad McAwesome survived. Bravo.
Later on in the same round, RedDeadDev3 is seen here sneaking up on Katie0391, taking her down with the Tomahawk, part of the Undead Nightmare disc version and the Legends and Killers Pack. The eventual round winner was ii x FLaMez who ended with 10 captures, 17 kills, 14 deaths and 6 headshots. And longtime Social Club multiplayer event participant CYPRESS44 came in an impressive second place with 7 captures, 28 kills, 11 deaths and 10 headshots. Bon travail!
Moving things to Gang Shootout in Tumbleweed, 16 players began with a Showdown and American Army's Mr Steakhouse was able to bring down the last remaining Cattle Rustler fettbacke3000. But as most of you know, a Showdown/Standoff is only the beginning of these rounds of play. RedDeadDev3 illuminated the room above with...Dead Eye? Nope. A single frame of video as captured above shows the light given off by the blast from his Double-barreled Shotgun as the ammunition tore into RSGizzle's chestpiece. Blaow.
And for you stats-heads, here's the complete results from that pretty epic Gang Shootout match. Congrats to the Cattle Rustlers and Dazz Noob for the win in Tumbleweed.
Undead Overrun in Undead Nightmare was next up in Undeadwood. Things seemed to be starting off well for the posse, but soon the zombies became too great of a force to handle. In the screenshot above, RedDeadDev3 defends himself against Bruisers with his Double-action Revolver before heading over to revive III Davis III. Dead Eye is absolutely crucial in Undead Overrun, as stated in one of our recent Rockstar Game Tips posts. Highly recommend checking those out for those trying to wave up.
Have weapons will travel in the screen above as eight distinguished gentlemen lined up for a race through Rathskeller Run in the Horse Racing mode Grand Prix, part of the Undead Nightmare disc version and the Liars and Cheats Pack. QUIRIN222, CYPRESS44, Mr Steakhouse, CSIXTY, OverTheUnder, RedDeadDev3, cigarnut81 and RedDeadDev6 took off from the starting line, the first kill going to Mr Steakhouse who planted QUIRIN22 into the ground. And maybe it was a sign, because Mr Steakhouse crossed the finish line first with a time of 2:07.87.
We ended things with Free Roam, going through some of Armadillo's Land Grab, fighting enemies in the Gang Hideout in Twin Rocks and even staging some fistfights and Tomahawk battles. Thanks to all that were in on the event. Below is a roll call of participants, just shout if we've accidentally left anyone out:
