During this time of the year, there's often talk about holidays (OK, mainly one) being commercialized or otherwise getting away from their original meaning. One thing we don't have to worry about that happening to is Customs Night. Yes, although this post might be late, so is Thanksgiving this year. The point is, Customs Night is coming back. If you're unaware or forgetful, Customs Night is a get-together held every Friday night by Community Customs (with the friendliest out-of-order site you've ever seen
) in which we play custom and standard gametypes on custom maps (and occasionally standard maps), with the custom maps ranging from minuscule to, well, majuscule, and the gametypes (and the maps for that matter) range from very simple to hardly sane. We start at 9:00 PM Eastern time
and play until there are only a few people left and/or no one wants to play customs any more. This week we'll be playing Halo 4
If that sounds like fun, all you have to do to join in is say so in a reply to this post and put your gamertag in there somewhere. If you do, you'll get a message or an invite at about 9:00 tomorrow. The only rules or guidelines to remember, besides just not being a jerk, are that a Community Customs admin (that is, nomis78, ShadowoftheVoid, or myself, Gnrl Vagueness) will have party lead the whole time, the party will be invite only, and we won't run any modded content (this is in case MS decides to ban people for it, which they can according to the XBL TOU, and even if they couldn't, they could change that so they could ban for it). These standards mean anything you want to us play that we don't already have should be in your file share.
I hope we see a bunch of you there.
Also, I intended to have something from last week's Customs Night in this post, which is partly why it's late. I found something good, but a screenshot couldn't really capture it, multiple ones would've been clunky and still missed things, and I couldn't seem to even do it justice with a film clip. If you do or see something noteworthy during Customs Night, please let me know, I'd be happy to get a screenshot or a clip.
