Update, Halloween & Favourite Developer

Hey everyone, it's Mike.

I'd just like to quickly update everyone regarding the recent lack of uploading. Everyone at Vigil Gaming is quite occupied with our lives to keep a regularly scheduled time frame open for uploading. I have actually been very uninterested in even recording videos as of late. The whole process of recording, editing, commentating, fixing audio, rendering, uploading and annotating is just something I'm taking a well deserved break from. I have a couple levels of StarCraft I can commentate whenever I'm in the mood but we'll see when that is. We hope you all can understand.

This Sunday marks one of my favourite "holidays": Halloween. I'm just wondering what you all plan on doing for the occasion? Are you going out, staying in, handing out candy or doing something else? Let me know in the comments of this blog! I am going to be dressing up in a full gorilla suit and going trick-or-treating with a group of friends. One is never too old for free candy. :)

Last week we asked you "Who's Your Favourite Game Developer?" and not many people voted. The results were as follow: Valve with 50% (3 votes), Infinity Ward, Treyarch and Blizzard all at 16% (1 vote) and Nintendo, Ubisoft, Rockstar & Other getting 0 votes.

This weeks poll asks you all: "Should Vigil Gaming recruit more uploaders?" with the following options: Yes. Go Machinima on us, A few and No. Keep in mind that we would never recruit anyone we don't all know. In short, no randoms. Get to voting! The poll ends Friday, November 5, 2010!

Favourite Type of Game?

The poll has spoken.

Last week we asked you: "What's your favourite genre of video game?" with a pretty one way result as follows: Shooter with 87% (7 votes), Role Playing with 12% (1 vote) and Sports, Strategy and Other with 0 votes. Comment on this post if you see what's wrong with the results?

Poll Results

The poll has spoken.

Last week's poll asked you "What did you think of L4D2's The Sacrifice DLC?" and the following results came about: Fantastic with 43% (7 votes), Decent with 31% (5 votes), Don't Know with 18% (3 votes), It's Alright with 6% (1 vote) and Bad and Terrible, Expected Better From Valve both obtaining 0 votes.
Personally, the DLC was great.

CSS Open Lobby Video

Hey everyone it's Mike!

I'm saddened to tell you all that the footage from the Counter-Strike: Source open lobby that we had a week ago won't be turned in to a video for VigilGaming. As we played I was recording a demo that I was going to go back to and record using Fraps. I tried to do that yesterday and today but literally every other second the game would freeze for 10 seconds. It sucks because I really wanted to upload it.

Sorry again.

Most Popular Game!

The poll has spoken.

The last poll asked you all "What soon-to-be game are you most looking forward to?" The results were as follow: L4D2 DLC (The Sacrifice) with 7 votes (46%), Black Ops with 5 votes (33%), Medal of Honor with 2 votes (13%), WoW: Cataclysm with 1 vote (6%) and Other with 0 votes. A little surprised that Black Ops didn't win the majority but in fairness, L4D2 is awesome.

This weeks poll is asking you all "What did you think of L4D2's The Sacrifice DLC?" with the options being Fantastic, Decent, It's Alright, Bad, Terrible, Expected Better From Valve and Don't Know. You have one week! VOTE MO SUCKAS!

Medal of Honor Open Beta

Hey everyone it's Mike!

For those of you that don't know, the Medal of Honor open beta for PC has started today and will run until Thursday, October 7, 2010. I am currently installing the game and hope to give it a shot sometime tonight, though with my currently busy schedule for school I might not get much gameplay in. I will try my best to get some gameplay with commentary for you all but if this game runs anything like Bad Company 2 on my PC than neither Fraps or WeGame will be suitable to record it since I'll only be getting like 10 FPS. So hopefully that won't be the case and I can provide you guys with, at least, some non-HD WeGame footage though HD Fraps stuff would be cool.

The poll has spoken.

In the recent poll we asked "What games should we play at the open lobby?" and we gave you 2 options for PC and 2 for XBox 360. The results were as follow: Counter-Strike Source had 11 votes (50%), Halo: Reach had 8 votes (36%), Left 4 Dead 2 had 3 votes (13%) and Modern Warfare 2 had, understandably, 0 votes.

So that means tomorrow the XBox 360 lobby will be playing Halo: Reach at 2pm Central time. Make sure to add at least S w 1 t c h to Live to be invited.
The PC lobby will be playing Counter-Strike Source with invites being sent out at 5pm Eastern time. Make sure you're a part of the Steam group ( and online near that hour.
If you don't live in one or both of the time zones then just Google a time zone converter or something. It's very simple.

If you have both Halo: Reach and Counter-Strike Source I believe that both of the lobbies are a few hours apart so you could probably make it to both of them if you wanted to.

Remember, these lobbies WILL be recorded and uploaded to VigilGaming. See you all there!

This weeks new poll asks "What soon-to-be game are you most looking forward to?" with Black Ops, L4D2's DLC entitled "The Sacrifice", Medal of Honor, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and Other competing for your votes. The poll ends next Friday, October 8, 2010!
