geekpub LAN Party 13.1 - Virtual via Steam

 

Gamers of geekpub, it's on again. Join us for the first LAN Party of 2013.

Due to the current, and hopefully only temporary closure of the gamerbase venue at Trocadero, we will get together online, primarily via Steam.

The date is set for Saturday 23 February from 1pm.

 

Let's gather in our Steam group's chat room.

    Just wanted to check, Do i need to have this on pc to join, I only have a mac and it states cross platform multiplayer when looking at the details, can anyone clarify, thanks?

    • Bruno M.

      Steam is available on Mac, but that doesn't mean all the games on Steam will work on Mac. In fact, very few games do, you have to check the specs of each game individually.

      Thanks for replies, looking at CSS, it's available on mac but I'm wondering if I'm able to join a multiplayer with other players on pc for the LAN party tomorrow. May need more investigation and joining the next one, maybe. Unless everyone else gets a mac and joins me! :)

    If I get my PC rebuilt in time, I'm in for some Steam games. Anybody into Day of Defeat?

      Played it a few times online, I'm happy to play. Hopefully some other people will have it, don't think it's quite as popular as CS:S or TF2.

    Hi all, the event is now updated to reflect that this will be a virtual gathering with gameplay via Steam, since gamerbase our IRL venue is sadly unavailable for the time being.

    Hello.
    I have been keeping a look on the group for a while and I'm a bit confused if this is still ON or not.

    The RED message above says 2 contradicting things.
    Is the facility still available or is this group completely dismantled?

      Geekpub is here to stay. We like to game but are not a dedicated group for just that. Gamerbase was the placed we used for large gaming meetups. HMV owned this and has now been closed. I have left event open to keep people updated in case a buyer is found and they reopen.

      February 17, 2013

  • Matt K.

    Sad news for gamers in London as Gamerbase was closed today as part of the HMV shut down. All Geekpub LAN's were held there :(
    We hope they secure funding/a buyer for re-opening as soon as possible! Untill then all Geekpub LAN meetups are on hold

      When the Starcraft 2.0 update comes out for Wings and when Heart of the Swarm comes out, we can set a similar thing up on Battle.net in the form of a group :D

    Was looking for LAN gatherings round my area and found this site, looks like a laugh.Also got a friend that wants to come with me.

    Hi all, this will be my first time. What are the popular games?

    January 9, 2013

    • Neil

      So far we played Counter Strike 1.6 a lot, also Team Fortress 2 a lot. FPS seems to be preferred but also have a fair share of gamers playing RTS like Starcraft II. It will be decided dynamically on the day.

  • Jonny W.

    hi :) I´m new here and i´ve never been at gamerbase before! So here´s my question: is it right that i get everything i need from gamerbase (computer, games etc.) ? And is it possible to play own non-steam games? ( i ask specially for old games like age of empires 2 etc)

    December 2, 2012

    • George

      Hi Jonny, gamerbase are fully equipped; their latest upgrade was for keyboards, mice and headsets from Razer.
      You can either log in with your own Steam Account to play games from your library or play a game out of their selection that uses one of their dynamically assigned Steam logins.
