geekpub LAN Party - November

Gamers of geekpub, it's on. Join us for the fourth and last LAN Party of 2012.

The date is set for Saturday 24 November from 12pm again. As always we'll go to gamerbase at HMV in Trocadero.

GROUPON VOUCHER

Everyone with a Groupon Voucher for the Trocadero Gamerbase, please make sure you print off the voucher and bring it with you on the day. So speaketh the guys at Gamerbase.

PLAN

12:00 Beverage at Waxy's Little Sister (around the corner of Trocadero, Wardour/Lisle St)
~12:45 game on at gamerbase

WHERE'S GAMERBASE

From the Coventry St (the one connecting Piccadilly Cirus with Leicester Squ) entrance to Trocadero you'll see the HMV to the left of it. Go all the way straight through the HMV shop, go through music, movies, then games, to reach gamerbase. There is also a side entry from the inside of the Trocadero.

FOOD & DRINKS

There is no bar inside. They have two vending machines, one for sweet and savoury snacks, another for soft drinks (without energy drinks!). Staff are cool for you to take food with you.

STEAM ACCOUNT

If you don't already have a Steam account, please set one up. You can log on with your own steam account at gamerbase and still play all the games that they have. Using your own account, we'll ask you to add a "GP_" in front of your handle for the day. This helps to avoid disconnects at gamerbase where some machines use the same gamerbase Steam login. Through the "GP_" we'll be able to find each other easier to team up for gameplay.

Also, please join our community group on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/geekpublondon

    Afraid I had to leave early but had an enjoyable time while I was there. Agree on post-gaming drinks.

      Glad you enjoyed yourself! We gamed on until 11.10 and then headed to a pub nearby for a pint (and a half). I was a bit spaced out from the epic gaming session. Matt, Lewis, and Talicia may have noticed it. [LAN parties for next year are penciled in on the meetup site.]

  • Tom C.

    Cool. Might have liked it if there was more socialising I suppose - a definite finish and adjournment to the pub next time maybe?

    November 25, 2012

  • George

    Truly epic! Nearly 10 hours of gaming time with 32 geekpub gamers most of that time. Thanks everyone!

      If anyone needs anything, I'm on 07769774244. Reception is bad inside so you might need to try me a couple of times.

    First meetup - really looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Any last minute pull-outs with a groupon? I'll buy beers to compensate at the next meetup!

    • George

      Most likely. Don't recall one of our LAN parties finishing before 6-7. At least one ran until 9ish.

  • Demetre C.

    I'll be just little late. Have to watch my niece till around 1. Still coming with a +1. So I just show up with my voucher? No need to book with HMV in advance?

    November 22, 2012

    • George

      We made a booking for every one for this event and gamer base know that many of us will bring a groupon voucher. No need to get in touch with them separately.

    Did anyone happen to get two vouchers? I missed the Groupon?

    November 22, 2012

  • Steve H.

    I forgot to book my space and now they are all booked out! So won't be able to make it :(

      November 22, 2012

  • James S.

    eh? I didn't think we had to book ourselves unless we were using some Groupon voucher or something...?

    November 22, 2012

    • George

      We made the booking with gamerbase for our lan party. If you've RSVP'D here, you're good to go. We'll all sign in together upon arrival.

      November 22, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Whoa, I just checked the games list and they now list "Quake Live Plugin"!! So that should mean it works now, YES!!
    GIAAA!!!.... I SHALL HAVE MY REVENGE!! :D *shakes fist in the air*

    November 22, 2012

  • George

    What would you like to play??

    Please reply to this post with your top wishes (up to three). We'll send the overall top five to gamerbase and ask them to ensure that these are installed and up to date on all of our stations. [Last of install or update caused annoying delays previously and we'd like to try and minimise that going forward.]

      up for anything that works, last time the one that seemed to actually work consistenly was league of legends but for whatever fps will run.

      November 21, 2012

    • Tom C.

      Yay! LoL FTW!

      Although I love the idea of some old skool Unreal (1 and 2K4 as well!)

      November 21, 2012

  • Luke H.

    I'd like to play The Ship, otherwise I'm happy to play/learn any other games.

    If you've got a Groupon Voucher for the Trocadero, please make sure you print it off and bring it with you.

    Another logistical item (reminder further to meetup descr.): For the LAN party you'll need a steam account. If you don't have one yet, please set one up: https://store.steampowered.com/join/?&snr=1_60_4__62
    For the gaming on the day, please put "GP_" in front of your display name on steam.
    You can join our group on Steam here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/geekpublondon - besides the traditional tool of voice, we will be using the group chat room to organise games/teams.

    Chancing my luck here. Would anyone by any chance happen to have a spare ticket for tomorrow's Distant Worlds concert that needs shifted? ^_^

    November 1, 2012

    • Steven P.

      If you do then you will make one FF music fan very happy indeed!

      November 1, 2012

  • James S.

    Did I miss one? Isn't this is the third LAN party of 2012? Sorry to be picky, Obis 1-4, but I would hate for you guys to miss out on the firm, thorough spanking you're going to get for missing your putative target :-)

    October 30, 2012

    • George

      Tis the third this year indeed. We didn't get to have the one intended for early summer. Happy to drink extra pints as punishment in lieu of the spanking.

      October 29, 2012

  • Matt K.

    October 7, 2012

  • Steven P.

    I think you have to book in advance if you're using a Groupon voucher, the fine print says: Booking required via [masked] with booking codes, name, contact number and preferred date.

    October 5, 2012

  • Steven P.

    Starcraft 2 perhaps? :P

    October 4, 2012

    • Steven P.

      Sweet! I'm sure it'll be one of many topics discussed at the meetup in two weeks time ^_^

      October 4, 2012

    • George

      Perhaps. :)

      October 4, 2012
