For the Summer of 2012, we're going to mix things up a bit by hosting the first GC9X Summer of Love. Rather than vote on this month's game, we'll instead be playing Gauntlet II, but with a twist. As we all know, Gauntlet II isn't much fun by yourself, so this month we'll be playing it together live!
Here's the deal: Over the month of June, we'll all be playing Gauntlet II together, whether that means on an actual arcade machine, via MAMEHub, some other matchmaking service, or on an NES with a multitap. At the end of the month, a few members of HG101 will meet together to play Gauntlet II on an actual arcade machine live, after which they'll record their impressions of the game. All other members will also gather together, either on an actual machine of some kind or online, to record their impressions in the thread. Obviously not everyone lives close enough to do this in person, but the idea here is to play this game together any way possible.
Don't have Gauntlet II, or absolutely hate it? That's fine! We have plenty of other games to play, including a few non-canon ones. No matter which version or which game you decide to play, this should make for an interesting discussion!
We're still hashing the details at, so feel free to ask questions! More surprises are in store for the months of July and August, so be on the lookout!
