Last LAN of 2013?

  • December 14, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Schedule Edit

The LAN will still be at 2 pm, but a group of us are going to meet up at the Sporting Clay range at Ben Avery for some shotgun shooting at 10 am. If you don't have a shotgun, you can still come and hang out and probably borrow one that we have there. If you want to drop off your PC first, I will be here until 9:45.

______________________________________

Hi all! 

Figured it's been awhile, and this date is a sweet spot between the end of finals (13th) and various xmas vacations. 

I haven't set the location yet because I figure I'll give someone else a chance to host, so if you've been interested just say so and this will become your event. If nobody else wants to I have no problem hosting it, i'll leave it open for another week or so.

Same goes for games, I have nothing specific in mind and I'd like to leave it open for discussion and ultimately whomever hosts to decide. Of course I'm always down for the basics; TF2, L4d2, maybe a lil civ5 or BF3. ;)

    Also, just throwing this out here, I'll have an Oculus Rift set up on a separate computer to mess around with.

    Hey, does anyone have an extra monitor they don't mind bringing? I was just setting up my cousin and my extra monitor has a crack in it.

    December 14

    • Jon Ohler

      I can bring a 20 inch lcd only has vga connector

      December 14

    • Fletcher

      I found a 1280x1024 monitor in the garage. We'll see how it works.

      December 14

  • Jason

    Hell Yeah! I'm in. Wherever it is! I can host (47th Ave and Peoria Ave) if it works best for all. I will be driving a Ferrari at Bondurant on 12-12, so my attendance is dependent on me not ending up in the wall LOL

    December 2

    • Jason

      I'll see you at 10am for some clay pigeon blasting. Anyone else that wants to shoot, you don't need a gun. I'll have a couple different ones and we can share. Just bring eye protection (sunglasses) and some cash to help cover the cost of targets/ammo. I'll bring extra ear protection

      December 13

    • Jason

      Even if you've never shot a shotgun before, you're welcome! It's really fun and beginner friendly. I've taken many first timers out and they have all had smiles that would not leave their faces.\

    For those who like games and free stuff, GOG.com is giving away Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics for one more day. Some good games for the not so hefty price of $0.

  • Drew

    ZOMG - I just got an email from valve. Guess who's getting a Steam Machine?! Ships Friday, so unfortunately I won't be able to bring it to the LAN, but I'm excited!

    • Nate B

      How did you score that?

      December 12

    • Drew

      I completed all of the requirements to be entered into the beta and waited. Lucky. One of 300 picked out of over 422,000 entries.

  • Brett

    Just scooped up CS, and of course I already am a huge BF whore, so that is set and ready. I'll have to reinstall TF and LFD. Ready!

    December 11

  • Fletcher

    How about finalizing a games list?
    I'm going to go down this list in order of what I think will be played during the LAN and we can argue and say what sucks based off of what is said.

    1. CS:GO
    2. Sonic All Stars Racing
    3. BF4/BF3 depending on who has what.
    4. TF2
    5. Civ 5
    6. L4D2
    7. Brutal Doom
    8. GTA4

    Anyways, argue away.

    December 10

    • Fletcher

      Brutal Doom is free so it has that going for it too.

      December 11

    • Brent Perkins

      I'm def down to check out brutal doom, looks pretty hilarious, while at the same time some of my fondest lan memories are from doom

      December 11

  • Nate B

    1. CS:GO - Do not have :(
    2. Sonic All Stars Racing - Do not have :(
    3. BF4/BF3 depending on who has what. - Have Both
    4. TF2 - Have
    5. Civ 5 - Do not have :(
    6. L4D2 - Have
    7. Brutal Doom - Do not have :(
    8. GTA4 - Do not have :(

    Have any ISO's to run these games?

    December 11

    • Sean Caufield

      I know someone picked up a 4 pack of Sonic Racing. About $5 for a copy. For Brutal Doom, I think you just need the wad files. And I didn't even know GTA4 had multiplayer.

      December 11

    • Brent Perkins

      Hopefully someone will have an extra copy of CS:GO, dont pay $14 for it.
      I've got an extra GTA4 copy for $5 if we play that.
      Jason has extra sonics for $4-5 guessing.
      But in general that list is the bread and butter of this group!

  • quiles

    hi guys i am new doing LAN in Arizona i would like to know how this going to work i need to pay something

    December 10

    • quiles

      perfect, thank you see you there

      December 11

    • Jon Ohler

      I waiting on the bugs to go away on bf4 ;D

  • Brett

    last lan I was told there would be punch and pie, but there was no punch or pie, wtf?

    December 9

    • Fletcher

      I can punch you and then give you a slice of pie, will that work?

      December 10

  • Sean Caufield

    <plug> I just wanted to let everyone know that Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is $5 on Steam this weekend. It's a very competent kart racer, and I thought it would be a great game to play at a LAN with a bunch of people. It's free to try until Sunday. Full 360 controller support too. </plug>

    December 5

    • Fletcher

      Also, if we don't have enough to go around, we can hook up one of the pcs to the tv and play splitscreen on the tv with everyone else on their pc.

      December 9

    • Brent Perkins

      Good idea. Played it a little bit the other day, it's fun! It's probably top 3 silliest lan games to play, up there with suicide survival haha. Lets just say 5 drink minimum

      December 10

  • Jon Ohler

    Perhaps I'll go to this I will let you know soon.

    December 9

  • Jon Lange

    Hey guys/gals, Sorry I'm a bit late to the comment party, but I would love to make the next LAN. CS:GO and DOTA 2 are pretty much the only games I play ATM, but I would be willing to pick up BF4, (and I'm always down for the classics). If we can't find a good place to host, I might be able to use my office in Scottsdale. It's setup like a call center, (not in use), so everyone would have their own cube and would just need a pc + monitor + ethernet cord. I'm just putting this out there, and if there is any interest I would have to clear things with management first. Here is the location for consideration: https://maps.google.com/maps?ie=...­

    Just let me know if you have any questions. There are 16 cubes each about 7x7 and most are empty except for desk chairs.

    December 3

    • Brent Perkins

      Jod - Having a different opinion doesnt make you a douche!

      Jon - sorry your cant make it this time, but thanks again for offering up the venue. I'll shoot you an email pretty soon with some more questions aboot the place!

      1 · December 4

    • Zachary Mosher

      I don't mind the cubes. it's kind of gives space. it's not like we won't end up in some common area any ways. I like dota 2, but really get on it. my steam name is scaz24 if you want to friend request me.

      December 4

  • Drew

    Figured I'd point out the latest humble bundle. It has Natural Selection 2 (team based fps type) included and it's only around $4.25 right now for all games including the unlocks. Heck, be cheap and throw in a buck and you'll still get NS2.

    "Six top-tier titles. The Humble Jumbo Bundle features six incredible games that are sure to blow your mind away. Pay what you want and get Natural Selection 2, Sanctum 2 and Magicka with two packs of DLC! If you pay more than the average price, you'll also receive Orcs Must Die! 2: Complete Pack, Garry’s Mod and Serious Sam 3: BFE!"

    December 3

    • Drew

      You can gift them now (finally!)

      December 4

    • Brent Perkins

      Not positive, but I think they go poof. On the bright side there is no need to decide right now since the current bundle will be up until the Dec 17th. I see that it also includes SS3, which would be tits but it's gonna be a harder sell at >$4

      December 4

  • Fletcher

    I know this is completely off topic, but what happened to that guy that had lung surgery?

    December 3

    • Brent Perkins

      Oh snap, I believe that was Matt Weber!? Haven't heard from him, hope he's all healed up and such.

      December 4

  • Sean Caufield

    Should we decide on some games now so we know what we'll be playing? CS:GO seems like a good choice if most are okay with that. If anyone has any recommendations, inexpensive and LAN-capable would be great. Even older games would be a lot of fun (ex. UT2K4).

    December 3

    • Fletcher

      Has anyone played Brutal Doom? They just released a new version of it and it's hilariously bloody. And all you need are the Doom .wad files (which are easily copied) and the free Zandronum client.

      December 3

  • Cora

    What about CS:GO?
    Btw, hello. :) I'm new here. (to this group and AZ)

    November 29

    • Cora

      Haha! Yes, that is me. I have shorter hair now. That pic is from a year ago. :p And thank you, Brent! I hope I'll get to game with you guys on the 14th. That is if you don't mind me coming, and if you don't mind playing some CS this time. I don't wanna get BF4 without trying it out. :)

      December 3

    • Fletcher

      No problem. :) The reason I asked about the controller is that I have a 360 adapter for the pc so you can use a wireless 360 controller.

      December 3

  • Fletcher

    I can host again if people don't mind driving up here.

    I also just bought CS:GO. The only other time I played it was that free weekend at Brent's house, so I'd be down for that if people want to go that route.

    November 30

    • Sean Caufield

      Which side of Phoenix are you on?

      November 30

    • Fletcher

      North Phoenix. West side of I17 and Dixileta.

      November 30

  • Brett

    Yeah, sure, lets do something!

    November 29

  • Sean Caufield

    Count me in. As for games, Steam just started their Autumn sale. Plenty of good deals.

    November 27

  • Nate B

    Count me in as well.

    November 28

  • Matthew Boulant

    I'm hoping to make this. Maybe bring a guests.
