    With the Battlefield 3 beta now live, we thought it would be cool if we got together a bunch of Eurogamer staffers and readers and shot the hell out of each other for an evening, a bit like we did for Battlefield 2 back in the day, so on Thursday this week at 7pm UK we're going to head online and anyone from here is welcome to join us.

    We'll be playing on Xbox 360 because that's the most commonly owned console in the office (OMG bias etc) so we'll probably try to get some of us together in a party just before 7pm and then go get shot in the face together. If you want to add a few of our gamertags so you can join us, go for it. Maybe pop yours in a reply so we know who to look for:

    Me - Brrrammers
    Mark Kennedy - sharpkiddie
    Dan Robinson - spydez50
    Ben Whitmore - bennyw01
    Dean Smith - blimeyguvnor
    Matt Styles - Mr McStyles
    Josh Heaton - JOSH C4

    We should be on for at least a couple of hours, so hopefully a good few of us will be able to get a game together. And if this proves popular, we'll try to repeat it for other games later in the year.

    Tom.

    ...A good idea...but the beta?...Sure you don't want to BFBC2 it up a bit?

    Ah well, I might be there...

    I've changed my mind, will probably have deleted the beta by then!

    I'm definitely up for this, its just a matter of organising it, and with the squad tools etc being what they are in the BF3 beta, I'm not sure this will be very succesful :(

    Edit: thought I'd better add my GT too: FillRoyy

    I'm tempted, but wouldn't be able to get on until about 9pm at the earliest, so I'm not sure if you'll still be shooting each other in the faces by then.

    I'll check if there's any joinable games when I get online just in case!

    The BFBC2 night last year was tremendous fun. I'll duck out of this one as I'm playing on PC; but I'd urge everyone to have a go - it was a great laugh.

    You're never going to be able to do it.
    Squad Join is fucked on consoles and there are no private games (which is what you ideally need for this).
    You should put this off until proper release.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    I agree with Surrminator and Acid, it won't work but if you fancy some BC2 instead I'm game.

    I'd love to do this, but the squad system is so fucked at the moment it'll be almost impossible to do.

    Maybe doing it on BC2 will be better.

    Like others have already said.


    OMG 360 biased!!

    ;)

    agree, the squad systems online for the beta don't work. Happy to play on the full game on release night though :-)

    All added to the EGBC2 sock, to help spread the faceshooting joy.

    I'd thought about letting my live sub lapse next month, but maybe the BF3 beta will bugger that plan up.

    Perhaps the EG staff have a little beta+ surprise for us?

    I don't think there is much chance of this getting off the ground on Thursday, the squad system is just not working at all.

    Ill still be around though if it miraculously sorts it's self out!

    I don't mind being shot in the face and dying, or little toe, and dying.

    Hey guys. Basically we're going to be online from 7pm and even if we can't get it to work we'll damn well have a few Xbox Live Parties set up and moan at each other about it. What else is the internet for, etc. Then we can try and do it with the full game later as well.

    Obviously if it's a total disaster we can try playing something else. We shall see what happens!

    BFBC2!...I mean, let's hope the beta works fine...

    Stop hatin'!

    We'll get something going, looking forward to it! We might not get everyone in if the squad thing is still acting up but we can surely get some BF3 in, even if it's by joining through each other's profiles. Woot!

    I will have to quickly get on the Beta but I was going to try this one out tonight anyway, so keep a look out for Duggy.
