Just Cause 2: Multiplayer Mod

  Today I don't have a game to review, but something more to add to a game.  What I'm trying to say is this is more of a announcement than a review.  So many months back a dedicated team of moders got together, took a awesome open world game that originally was a single player game and make it compatible for multiple people to play together.  May sound easy but this takes weeks or even months of converting to allow servers to run off the game's engine.  The modification has been under development since July of 2012, undergoing seventeen beta tests since its release.  Scattered throughout the this year and the last, the tests started out small, hidden and reserved for the teams IRC channel and twitter followers.  It slowly became more well known to the gaming community as it became public and after many beta tests it was a highly anticipated release with every beta test released until the community screamed for the completion of the mod.  Until finally a few days ago they announced the seventeenth and final beta test before the official release.  In preparation the creators are
giving out beta keys to download and play the mod on Steam as you would any Steam game, but you do need to have the actual game to play the mod, but don't worry, its worth it.  So the final beta test is taking place between December 7 to the 14th before they announce when the mod will officially be released for a permanent stay.  So great mod, really fun, and their are moments when I just go gut busting laughing at things in this mod.  I hope you leave here more informed than you came, take care and I will be back next Wednesday with a real post.  This has been Jacob Arnold, signing off.

good times
