The Stranded is a place where a bunch of us who game together can rant and rave about just about anything that catches our attention.

If you are new here and would like to join in the blogging fun as well as the gaming fun, just submit a comment to any blog post and along with your response, indicate that you would like to become a member. We will e-mail you an invitation.


Below are some community gaming guidelines.

Be Respectful

Finish the kill, don’t dance or drag it out.
Don’t trash talk.
Compliment each others’ successes.


The younger you are, the quieter you should be.


Let others know when you can and can’t make the event (xbl messages are fine).
Provide your team with useful information while playing.
“Please”, “Thank you”, andย  “I apologize”ย  go a long way to smoothing over potential problems.

Be Flexible

Be willing to jump on the team without your best friend.
Be willing to open a spot to allow others to rotate in and out, though we generally go by the rule “First come, first served“.

      Welcome, Jman!

      This is a just a place to keep in touch (and rant and rave) between XBL sessions! The party is on the One, but it carries over into the blog on occasion. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Welcome to The Stranded! We are a tight group (8 years together now?)

      Always happy to game with cool people.

      Jman is friends with Flenser and Braincake. We’ve been dominating in BF4 for the past couple weeks now.

      (Jman) – key games we are looking forward to are 1) Titanfall 2) The Division 3) Evolve 4) Destiny

      Destiny?!? When the heck did that ever enter the conversation? That game looks so…wait for it…”meh.”

    I know…. That is My crazy train. We’ll see once the beta comes out. I’ve got a code (put 5 bucks down on a preorder).

    Kenai, you will be our guinea pig. It is your Destiny!

    And there will be a gameplay video for Evolve released today, so check back here for the goodness. It will be the next water-cooler game. I haven’t even seen it in action yet, and just talking about it the other day, we came up with several hilarious scenarios that you know will happen. Blankman promises to push me into the Man-eating plants even though I will be on his team, and of course, I promise to be near the monster when he drops the trap so that I have no way of escape and am immediately incapped.
