The big night is here!

We should be facing Bungie tonight in the humpday challenge. For those participating or available on standby, here’s the plan. It will start at 11pm EST. The 2nd and 3rd games will obviously start later. If you’re scheduled for those matches, keep in mind you’ll get an invite a while after 11pm. If you’re on the challenge team, you should probably get online to warm up an hour early or so. We suggested playing Low Hill, Counter Strike, and 1 Flag CTF Fast Lockout with touch return. Practice those games with others from the challenge team if you can.

One thing I do not want to do is keep Bungie waiting. So if you’re on the 1st string or on standby, I expect you to be ready to accept an invite on a moment’s notice. If it goes over 30 seconds I will already be looking for a replacement. We won’t be waiting for your matchmaking games to finish. If you have any more questions, let me know. I’ll be taping the match with a camera on a tripod so hopefully we can make that available on the site. It’s gonna be awesome!

    Foo mo,
    My friend taught me this.
    If your filming your TV, then don’t. what you can do is use your VCR and plug in the video, audio, and audio 2. put in a video tape and press the record button on your VCR and bingo. you’ll need a video converter though which is the only problem. Good luck tonight.

    Note, it only picks up speaker sound, NOT MIC SOUND.

    >>well, if you change the options to mixed or speakers only for the xbox communicator, you should have mic sound working, its just that you might hear foo mo’s voice…

    Humpday through the eyes of Foo Mo Jive.

  9. foomojive says:

    Only way I could do it. the camera doesn’t have input jacks. I don’t have a capture card. I don’t have RCA jacks on my computer. and even if I had all this, how would I get my voice and the tv output on one recording? I’d have to speak into two mics. I tested the recording and it’s better than nothing because no one else has a capture card.

  10. Dialpex says:

    Foo Mo.. you know we’re just teasing ya… This is a great moment… if it’s a pic on pre-game lobby… we have to take it.. So.. Thanks for recording..!!!!

  16. jburton90 says:

  17. Pedro Taco says:

  18. Sh4rdy says:

And for all that aren’t going to be on tonight i am going to use my capture card to get footage of yes the all mighty looking at Foomo’s info when you click on his name to send a msg lol. I am going to get the scrolling of each name so you can atleast see actual proof of Bungie playing Podtacular. Good luck guys and ill be on tonight so if none of the guys on stand by end up being reliable ill be there for backup reserve lol.

  19. Daa Wheeze says:

    If i’m not mistaken, Sh4rdy has a capture card, you may want to ask him…also even though i’m not in a pod clan, i was a loooong time ago. If it comes down to it i’ll sub…i’m up all night so i’ll be fine. Also i’m a lvl 41 legit =D!

  22. QualityJeverage says:

    The subs have already been chosen, there are about 12 I think.

  23. immortalthree says:

  24. Painkilla05 says:

  30. Sugar Daddie says:

    I just wanna wish you guys the best of luck tonight. I hope you guys wipe the floor with bungie.
    And I cant wait to see the vid!
    Good luck Podtacular!

  31. Sgt Sharpie says:

    hey foo, if bungie will let us, ask them if they will play 5 games to allow more guys from the site the opportunity to play

  32. mathsucks004 says:

    what if bungie, mod or stand by    you should ask if you can play games “just for fun” after, and send some people invites

  33. QualityJeverage says:

    Bungie’s got a tight schedule guys. Remember this is their job, and they’ve got a game to make. They can’t spend all night playing customs with the fans.

    I’m honoured to be on the reserve list, Whether I actually get to play or not.

  34. A Oompa Loompah says:

    Good luck guys, kick some butt.

  35. Unr3alChi3f says:

    if you lose, congratulations, you have now joined the grounded clan…

  36. KP says:


  37. QualityJeverage says:

    Ohhhhhhh. Dat’s beef KP.

  38. Stealth Zealot says:

    What would happen if we won? Do we get anything? =) Anywayz(kinda my favorite word), if you get a some great moments in those matches, could you put it on podtacular so we could all download it? (the first thing i would do is put it on my PSP so i could watch it ANYWHERE)

  39. immortalthree says:

    ooooo KP wants it…..

  40. QualityJeverage says:

    Yeah KP. If I end up being called on tonight, you’ll be square in my sights…

  41. Cryptosporidium-137 says:

    ZOMFG, good luck guys

  42. jburton90 says:

    Yeah KP, thats cold. If we win could we negotiate an official Podtacular episode devoted to making Podtacular the “official” halo podcast. Maybe having some bungie people on the show would be cool.

  43. sharpshot15 says:

    Good luck guys!!!
