LAN Party Details

I thought we needed a section specifically to sum up all of the information about the LAN. I've been telling lots of people about it so they need somewhere to look to get all the info. Here are some of the things that I can think of:


Date: Friday, March 30th - Sunday, April 1st


Times: Starts at 6:00 P.M. Friday


Place: Tony Topper's house - Tony will post directions


Concept: We all get together with our computers and play games, discuss computer stuff, trade files, etc. Most people stay the entire time, sleeping at the LAN when necessary. We bring food and cook and eat it usually while playing games.


Things to Bring: Computer, Monitor, Headphones, Loud Speakers, Food, Mountain Dew, Sleeping Bag, Pillow, Tooth Brush, Deodorant (Please), Chair, LAN card, Power Strip...


Things not to Bring: Women (unless they're playing), RIAA and MPAA representatives, Computer Viruses, ...


Games to Install: Brandon can fill in this space


What Time

So, how early can I show up on friday, or maybe thursday night?

haha

Someone else sounds impatient to get his LAN on!

Also Gordy...

...have these so-called "lots of people" that you told about the LAN signed up on this site yet and voted for the date and CONTRIBUTED to the blogs?  Huh?  Huh?

I'll do my best

I'll work on compiling a concise list of the games we should expect to play the most.  For anyone that's coming, it is up to you to find these games and get them FULLY FUNCTIONAL on your system prior to the LAN.  If you can't or won't buy them (which you should anyway!), then it is your responsiblity to find a copy and serial for yourself.  Please make sure they are working copies and won't crash any multiplayer games we start.  Again, even if you buy them used on Amazon, the best bet is to purchase a working copy somewhere for the major ones.  I'll have the list by the end of the weekend...

Priority GAMES:

Alright people, here's a quick and dirty list of the primary games you should expect to play at the LAN:

  • Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors
  • Age of Empires 3
  • Halo for PC -secretly gay
  • Warhammer 40k - Dawn of War: Dark Crusades (newest expansion would be nice)
  • Counter-Strike
  • Counter-Strike: Source (if everyone has a copy!!!!!!!!)
  • Supreme Commander (being released very soon and will be MANDATORY)
  • Savage (free to download)

Here are some that I'd like to see played if we can:

  • Prey (AWESOME multiplayer fun) -secretly gay
  • Tron 2.0 (the lightcycles are a blast) -secretly gay
  • Warcraft III (still fun for most of us)
  • Half-Life 2 Deathmatch (Counter-Strike: Source isn't the only fun one to play multiplayer) 

I'm sure I'll think of others, but, for now, everybody work on getting (BUY if you can) these!
