Dev Log - Multiplayer Lobby

The 8-player Multiplayer Lobby is now up and running.  Up to four local players can join the Lobby from each Xbox.  Players can switch teams and communicate with voice.  Once all players are ready, the game launches with all online players present. 

Now the real fun begins.  The real challenge of multiplayer is determining what information each machine will be responsible for then coordinating the communication between all the different machines.  I've already done a lot of thinking about this while working on the Lobby and I'm excited to dive right into it.
