Both me and Spazz each have 3x 3 day guest passes for Shattered Horizon. Time starts counting down once you start downloading the game through steam, and the guest passes are only sticking around for about a month. It would be pretty sweet to play the game together for at least a few days.

If you don't know what shattered horizon is, its a FPS with some unique twists. Basically its the battle room from Ender's Game: you play as an astronaut with a gun fighting other astronauts with guns all with zero gravity and newtonian physics. Your space suit has two modes. The normal mode gives you high powered thrusters, allows you to clamp onto surfaces, automatically counteracts your gun's recoil, provides a HUD with friend/foe identification, and gives you simulated sound so you can hear whats going on around you. The powered down mode removes all those advantages, but your low powered thrusters don't give away your position, you do not show up on anyone's HUD or radar, gun recoil makes you fly backward, and you are immune to EMP blasts (the main offensive grenade).

All and all its pretty fun and worth at least trying out.

The game will run on a GeForce 8600 or later, and requires DirectX 10 so that means you need to be running either Vista or Windows 7.

I propose we play on Saturday the 28th because from what I understand thats probably the easiest time for Spazz to play, and we'll probably have tried out all the new stuff in L4D2 already by then.

After reading up about this game and hearing Kuran talk about it a lot, I went ahead and bought it (it's only 20bux anyways.) So, I also have 3 guest passes, which makes 9 between me kuran and spazz. We gotta play dudes.

I got the 4 day weekend off, but I have a midnight watch on Thanksgiving and a 0555 muster on Friday morning. After that little timespan, I'm totally free.
