Hey there faithful readers and newcomers alike, I’d like to announce to you an initiative we’re going to spear-head; Lounge Play.

Lounge Play is a meeting of PlayStation Vita gamers for some multiplayer, with some of the TVL team hosting and/or joining in matches. It’ll be generally hosted by myself and Tyler, though we’ve invited the rest of the team to join in as schedules permit.

This isn’t just for us though, we invite you guys to start your own games and join in each other’s games. We’re trying to get the community together for one day (Saturdays) though we’re hoping this grows into something much, much more.

As it stands, here’s what Tyler and I will be doing;

Every Saturday, at 2PM Pacific, 5PM Eastern or 10PM GMT (depending on your region) we’ll be starting up our first game. If you’d like to join us, contact us at the methods listed below. Depending on how many people ask to join or reply, you guys will need to start your own teams to cover all the people – that’s where this sort of evolves, as it’s not just about gaming with us but each other.

For the TVL team line up this week though, we’re going to be playing the following games;

  1. Killzone Mercenary (Brian joining us for sure)
  2. Need for Speed: Most Wanted
  3. Hot Shots Gold: World Invitational / Everybody’s Golf 6

We’ll be playing with different people each game, but can’t give a solid starting time on any game but the first – so keep in touch if you’re picked to play with us. All the games including Tyler will be recorded and put on the site (and YouTube), so keep that in mind when you’re looking to join.

Speaking of which, if you’re looking to join the staff game here’s how to get in touch;

If you’re not picked to game with the staff (due to either the amount of requests or the amount of players allowed in multiplayer for the chosen title),ย pleaseย feel free to schedule a game of your choice with some friends in the comments or make new friends and games with other like-minded gamers. This is really just us pushing everyone to get together, since we know everyone could use some more multiplayer and some more Vita gamers to play with.

Questions or comments are welcome – we’re interested in what you think.

That said, let’s get gaming and I hope to see you there!

Update: Just finished up our first LoungePlay and it went pretty well! Thanks to everyone who joined, videos up soon, and see you next week!

  • Chief

    Sounds like an excellent idea.

    • Brian Sharon

      Looking forward to it!

  • Devin Hudson

    I won’t be able to join this week, but I definitely think this is a cool idea. Hopefully it takes off, and hopefully I’ll be able to join in the future.

  • Chief

    I’ll join in for a few games of KZ: Mercs. I’m rusty though but, dat Warzone is calling.

    • Kyle Wakeling

      Sounds like a plan, my friend. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do I have you on PSN (teflontactics)?

      • Chief

        You do; (TheButtonMashers)

        • Kyle Wakeling

          Ah! Perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Maqhusson

      I’ll join in for Killzone too, I believe I can make it

  • Lester Paredes


  • HassanJamal

    Neat, have fun, yaall!

  • Pata

    I could join on NFS Most Wanted if there’s enough demand. If not, I’ll wait for next week’s games, since I don’t have Killzone nor Everybody’s Golf.

    And, I’m dissapointed there’s no Tadeo Jones in the line-up :P.

    • Pata

      If you still guys are planning to play this game, I will not be available. Sorry.

  • Brian Sharon

    Just wanted to give a heads up to those interested. I’ll be joining the fray tonight for Killzone Mercenary, and all those willing to stick around (rather than migrate to other games with Tyler & Kyle) are free to continue playing with me afterwards.

  • Im in a party now feel free to join in ๐Ÿ˜€ send me a friend request at ImSoHappy77

    • Chief

      I’m wondering if this has started yet I haven’t heard any word on it

      • send me a friend request we’re about to start some KZM

  • Chief

    I’m firing up KZ: Mercs right now. I need to level up so if no one is playing yet I’ll still be on it.

    • we’re still getting things setup but if you join our party we should be starting real soon!

  • Guest

    I can’t make it this week because something came up, but I can make it next week

  • anyrandomhero

    I signed up to disqus purely to apologise for how bad I was at Killzone! It was fun though, hope to play again if I have the next few games

    • Kyle Wakeling

      I have a feeling that Killzone might be of our staple games (ones we always play) due to how many people can join in. You will get the chance to redeem yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Brian Sharon

    Thanks to all those who joined us, it was a fun time.

  • Scott Clarkson

    Sorry about dropping out of the party today. My Vita ran out of power and I needed to go somewhere so maybe next time I will be able to play. Hopefully you will still be playing killzone.

    • Kyle Wakeling

      No worries, we’ll be glad to have you next time ๐Ÿ™‚

  • aros

    I definitely look forward to what the next games TVL will be playing.

    Anyone from here is welcome to add me, just note TVL in the add. My PSN is aros2011 and I have a lot of Vita games so can probably help with any multi-player trophies you need, if you do the same for me.
