This goes to all the gamers!
As our previous LAN parties we will host this September one at HMV Gamerbase, Piccadilly Circus (details here: http://www.gamerbase.com/?a=piccadilly).
For people who haven't been before, here some additional information:
1) PCs and games are all provided by Gamerbase. Each block consists of 5 PCs, so we'll be sitting in groups. If we want to go for drinks or food in between we can just log off, tell a member of staff, and then return to our PCs again. (There are also consoles in case any console gamers are around)
2) We are allowed to bring our own drinks and food.
3) We pay as we come. We usually get a group discount, so with the first LAN it was £15 for 7 hour passes or £20 for full day, and at the second LAN we got 9 hours for the £15. Going to contact them again once we have an (approximate) final number of participants and let you know.
4) In case you are wondering about games, last time we played mainly CSS, HL, Quake, UT, COD MW3, SC2, L4D. There is also an over 18 room with only 6 PCs where you can play games like L4D2. (Last time it was brilliant in there - eating burgers while playing a nice 3on3. Like in good ol' days!)
5) Skill-wise we are probably low to medium - but skill doesn't matter. Just come along!
