We're moving to a new weekend after DragonCon!

***NOTE: For this event all attendees must be 18+***

What games we play?
We get this question a lot. The answer is: a lot of things.
The "regular" games: Team Fortress 2, Supreme Commander, UT2004-Carball, Artemis
The "irregulars":  Starcraft(II), Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, <insert random Steam game here>, Rise of Nations, etc.

Expect more Starcraft 2. Borderlands, and whatever we come up with :-)

 

WHAT YOU GET:

  • A Seat at our LAN event (table footprint: 36"W x 30"D... ish)
  • A LAN connection
  • All-you-can-drink soda (tell us your favorite when you register)
  • Dinner (usually Pizza, or whatever the group decides on)

VENUE NOTES:

  • This is a private residence, please clean up after yourself.
  • Allergen Info: There is a cat in the house.
  • Crash space is available for those who want to stay late and not drive home right away; let us know if you need it (bring a sleeping bag).
  • There is a 30Mb cable internet connection.
  • A HTPC and Media Server are available.


WHAT TO BRING:

  • Your Computer with a wired network interface. (this is obvious, right?)
  • Protip: Configure your computer's WIRED interface for "Automatic/DHCP" The most common problem at setup is a statically-assigned IP address fouling up the works.
  • Monitor
  • Keyboard, mouse, joystick, game pads, etc.
  • Your mouse pad (the tables are NOT optical/laser mouse friendly).
  • Headphones with or without microphone (expect voice chat to be used)
  • Power strip and all applicable power cords.
  • Your windows, driver and game CD's.
  • UPDATED Virus protection (Microsoft Security Essentials is your friend).
  • A good attitude and friends (both we also have plenty of :-) )
  • Snacks and other goodies are always appreciated.

WHAT NOT TO BRING:

  • SPEAKERS (Speakers of any sort are discouraged due to the close proximity of everyone, and the tendency for people to bring sub-woofers...)
  • Viruses, Trojans, worms, etc (scan your machine before plugging in)
  • Adware, spyware, etc.
  • Hubs, switches, routers, access points, etc. (these are provided). Any rogue network equipment will be smited by the Network Gods <g>.
  • Port scanners, packet bombers, encryption crackers, aimbots, wallhacks, etc.

RULES:

  • NO SMOKING in the building. Before lighting up, go outside. It's not only common courtesy, it's the law.
  • Anyone caught cheating, packet bombing, roughhousing, stealing or messing with other people's property without permission WILL BE EJECTED - NO refunds, NO second chance! We are very serious about this one.

IF YOU SIGNED UP AND CAN'T MAKE IT:
It happens. Traffic, work, dead boxen and domestic overunits can all put a wrench in the works at the last minute. If you cancel 7 days before the event you will get a refund. Anyone cancelling within 7 days of the event or not showing up will be credited for the next event.

    My car exploded and I died while on my way to pick up Ian. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I will not be attending.

    • Brad N.

      Not sure who's pulling legs or not at this point.

      September 14, 2013

    • Chris S.

      My dog stole my car and died and a car crash. Won't be there either.

    Hi All, Looking to join you at this next meetup. Might have to pick up a couple games because I can't find any of my old media, lol.

    1 · September 11, 2013

    • Chris

      Well as quick as I am in, I am back out. Looking forward to possibly getting in some CIV 5 or Supreme Commander, TS, etc in, but it won't be this time.

      September 13, 2013

    • Brad N.

      Damn. See you next time.

      September 13, 2013

  • Chris S.

    So guys. I have to perform open heart surgery with a clown suit on. Needless to say I won't be attending.

    1 · September 13, 2013

  • Brandon V.

    I don't think I will be able to attend because my mom is going out of town and I don't have a ride. Unless someone lives near or in the forsyth area near Cumming:...?

    September 13, 2013

    • Brandon V.

      never mind I am going, I asked my uncle to take me

      1 · September 13, 2013

    • Brandon V.

      down side is that I will probably have to wait for him a long while..... -_-

      September 13, 2013

  • Brad N.

    Ben had to bow out... got Wifed :( (incidentally that's also why we're missing Steven, they bot got abducted. D'oh!)
    Last call for snackage and drink runs. Don't forget to update your games before tomorrow. We don't want to clog the pipes!

    September 13, 2013

    • Ian

      Holy referral link, batman!

      This looks like a great bundle

    • Sean P.

      Peer pressure is a terrible thing. Grabbed it.

      September 13, 2013

  • Chris S.

    Brad, this is a serious question. Will we all be ejected on saturday due to the nature of this weekends LAN in rule #2?

    September 11, 2013

    • Brad N.

      Hmm... Ya know, I forgot that bullet point was even there... Oh look, it's gone.

      1 · September 12, 2013

    • Brad N.

      I'd have to boot myself (and my, er, +1), and that would get awkward in a hurry, seeing as it's my event. So yeah, that rule's going away for this one ;)

      1 · September 12, 2013

  • Garth F.

    Humble Bundle 9 is out. Does anything there look good for the group? They were kind of meh for me.

    September 11, 2013

    • Sean P.

      I picked it up. Trine 2 and FTL are worth 3 bucks on there own.

      September 11, 2013

    • Ian

      Mark of the Ninja is a great game, I highly recommend it. This one seems geared more towards single player games, but they're all pretty good games if you're into the genres they fall in

      September 12, 2013

  • Sean P.

    Woodstock/Kennesaw/Marietta people: Do you want to setup a car pool?

    1 · September 10, 2013

    • Brad N.

      Hope you can make it!

      1 · September 11, 2013

    • Sean P.

      My +1 wont get to my place until 10ish. So we'll just ride separate.

      1 · September 11, 2013

  • Brad N.

    So, games....
    I've got an Artemis itch to scratch this month,
    more MvM? Sins? Civ V?

    1 · September 10, 2013

    • Sean P.

      I played Civ 5 this passed weekend in a LAN setting. 5 people vs 5 AIs on King level difficulty. We gave up after 8.5 hours when we were about to lose.

      September 10, 2013

    • Garth F.

      Magicka can do 4 player wave defense, or there is a free for all mode.

      2 · September 10, 2013

  • Brad N.

    Details are coming together for the "something special" for this event.
    I'll send more details to anyone who asks, but you're best bet is to be at the 8/24 event (if it goes off, *gulp*, but that's another thread...)

    August 22, 2013

    • Brad N.

      Details... ish: we shall have a 'wench' at the event. :)
      Bug me personally for details. Chris already has and I think his head exploded. You won't be disappointed. :)

      August 22, 2013

    • Brad N.

      September 9, 2013

  • Brad N.

    OK, guys, soda run needed. What do y'all want?
    I've got diet MD-code red on the list now, thanks Blaine!
    What else?

    2 · September 9, 2013

    • Chris S.

      Also. Maybe for the next LAN we should do a pot luck. Everyone bring a dish that can feed 8-10 people.

      September 9, 2013

    • Brad N.

      Good idea. I'll buy the drinks as usual. *makes note for october*

      September 9, 2013

  • Blane H.

    Does anyone here have Awesomenauts (SP?)?

    September 9, 2013

  • Sean P.

    If anyone is looking to fill out there Steam library a bit more Amazon is having a sale. Civ, Borderlands 2, AoE 2 HD steam keys for sale: http://www.amazon.com/b/?tag=cheapassgam08-20&node=7266959011

  • Ian

    18+? Is there something special planned?

    July 21, 2013

    • Brad N.

      I'll tell you what I've told Ben: a girlfriend lost a bet. She requested that minors be excluded (side note, is anyone here even under 18?). Just keep an open mind. it'll be fun :)
      Gaming will proceed as usual. Same hours, same everything.

      August 8, 2013
