Geekpub LAN Party #4

Please vote for the September date here: http://www.meetup.com/geekpub/polls/613202/

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!

      probably around end of November time, we aimed to have 1 every 4 months or so this year

    Had loads of fun, reconnected with lovely friends and met some really cool new people too. Kind of frustrating that we kept getting kicked out of steam when playing CS and internet lagged for SC2 at times... but in the end this didn't alter the feeling that it was a really great day!

    Great fun as always; nice to see so many new gamers at geekpub! (And Stephen, don't worry - at least you weren't the worst challenge yet ;D)

    Great fun! If y'all want to add me on Steam, I'm MKM (My avatar is a shark in a turtleneck.)

    Fantastic, 10 hours full of epic LAN gaming fun, along with some great people. Even though TF2's Man vs Machine took many hours, we were victorious in the end! Will be coming back for more.

    Epic. Had a lot of fun. CS and SCII were awesome. But still pretty sore at being beaten at Unreal Tournament by Gianna.... REMATCH!!!

    September 1, 2012

    • Bruno M.

      I'm not at gamerbase, but that seems fine, especially if there is a RSVP slot open...

    August 31, 2012

  • Adrian L.

    Right....I can come after 5, more like 6 and get a spot of 6 hour LAN'age in. If there is a spot I'd love to come down. No can on headset, have a mouse though...

    August 28, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Adrian, please join the waiting list. I have listed you on bringing mouse, and coming at around 6. Should be fine :)

      August 30, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Nishant, good luck with the zombies ;) Maybe next time.

      August 30, 2012

  • Jason R.

    I have both Mouse and Headset i can bring too...

    August 28, 2012

    • Jason R.

      Just a quick thing i'm assuming we will have access to the more then one usb port as my headset is usb too...

      August 29, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Yep, shouldn't be a prob!

    If they can't, there is Battlefield 2 via steam

    I'm hoping for some Battlefield action

    August 24, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Yep, we always had problems with Origin and couldn´t play :/

      August 26, 2012

    • Matt K.

      i think we should contact them about this as i would like some battlefield action too, they should be able to get it all updated and running

      August 28, 2012

  • Matt K.

    Please make sure that if you RSVP yes to this event that only a zombie apocalypse will stop you attending.
    This is Important due to gamer base having only limited PC's and if we book 20-30 people and half you are no shows then they will stop giving good offers to our group or may refuse future bookings!
    So if your not sure or a maybe please switch to NO until you are absolutely certain your coming :)

    Thanks!

    Matt

    August 23, 2012

    • Carl B.

      Sigh! The zombie apocalypse is upon us (read as "must help daughter to decorate") and I've had to cancel... next time, Sam, next time. Sigh.

      August 28, 2012

    • Matt K.

      thanks for letting us know! :)

      August 28, 2012

  • Gabriele

    I'll bring my mouse but I have no headset though

    August 28, 2012

  • James S.

    will be bringing my razer mouse in any case... I also have a USB headset I can bring if that is of any use?

    August 27, 2012

    I can bring a mouse and headset. Is worth bringing a laptop if they are short of stuff?

    August 27, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      They are only short of mice and headsets - you still have to use the PCs there. Thanks though, I'll put you on the list too!

      August 27, 2012

  • Gianna I.

    Our places for Saturday are now confirmed. Please update your final RSVP, and let us know if you can't attend last minute.

    I can also confirm the prices: We'll get group Saturday day passes for £20 or university student rates for the 8 hours (again £20 - 9h=£20 @ student price). Using the Student rate any unused time can be carried over to your next visit.

    Big thanks to Gamerbase, and let the gaming begin!

    • Gianna I.

      Quick update: We have got 30x PCs booked, but if we can get 5 players that bring their Mice and headset's we can have another 5 PCs (one pillar closed at the moment due to lack of mice / headsets). Let me know who can bring their own stuff. (Usually fewer people show up anyway, but would be good to have this covered. Happy to bring my own mouse & headset.

    Ah yes origin. Pure evil. Battlefield 2 however runs through steam and doesn't use origin

    August 26, 2012

    Skill level schmil-level. I play to have fun.

    August 25, 2012

  • Steve G.

    Does skill level matter? I've not really played any PC games since my PC fell into a coma v_v

    August 25, 2012

  • Joost S.

    Is it work doing a little bit of planing (or even voting) on what games to start playing? I'd love to play some TF2 Man vs. Machine locally with 5 other people e.g.. Anyone up for that?

    Also interested in some MW3, UT 2004 (Torlan!) and even some old school Quake 1.

    August 23, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Awesome. Hopefully you can offer me some challenge compared to Bruno ;)

      August 24, 2012

    • Bruno M.

      Oh you didn't.... ~_~

    so I'll probably be the worst gamer at this event, but i'm hoping that skill really doesn't matter - right? right. good

    August 24, 2012

    • Gianna I.

      Right!

      August 24, 2012

    • Bruno M.

      Only if you wanna kick Gianna's arse in UT... then it matters.. a lot ;)

      1 · August 24, 2012

  • Mark D.

    Who needs these new modern titles, i'm up for UT.

    1 · August 24, 2012

    • Daniel

      which ut? and if I remember ut was hard to get.

      August 24, 2012

  • Naji E.

    August 24, 2012

    Perhaps an unusual game that most of us won't have played? Try something new and level the playing field

    I don't mind too much what we play, I haven't played a pc shooter for a while now so, I'm sure I'm a little rusty.

    August 23, 2012

  • A former member

    We should also consider playing something like borderlands soooo much fun

    August 23, 2012

  • Adrian L.

    WARCRAFT 3 TOWER DEFENSE!!!! Gem map preferably, havent played in years...

    August 20, 2012

    August 15, 2012
