Polygon Multiplayer Weekend (August 3): Gears 3, Borderlands, Payday

Hey, guys!

I figured instead of creating a new thread every week, I'd just retitle the old one, delete all content, and start over again. So! Here goes:

After talking with fellow people, reading their comments, and playing with them, it looks like the games people want to play the most are Gears 3 and Borderlands. Those of us over in the IRC want to play Payday: The Heist, because it's awesome.

For Gears 3, we tried to get to Level 50, but then, on level 49, after several hours, somebody's connection exploded and we failed. We would have needed another player anyways, as we had four players, not five.

So that's what's coming up: what do you guys want to play after that? Is there anything you'd like to play during the week? I'm up for pretty much any co-op game, assuming I have it; anything I can do to help you get achievements or whatever, I'd gladly do.

Also, to quote Rio from the comments below:

Perhaps people should list the multi-player games, and which platforms they use to make co-ordination easier?

I'll start listing multiplayer games (co-op and versus) we've got in a master list here.
