    How much space will there be for this event? I plan on bringing my desktop rig but that takes up quite a bit of space. Also are we allowed to vape at the event.

    January 6, 2014

    • Joseph L.

      That's cool...I'll be arriving on Sat. so we should probably meet up along with Obinna and discuss things for the new sem.

      January 9, 2014

    • Joe

      Ok let's see when we can meet. Probably tomorrow, online, or one day this week.

      January 11, 2014

  • Elena E.

    Ps4 would be a really good prize!

    December 6, 2013

    • Joseph L.

      how do door prizes work?

      January 9, 2014

    • Joe

      I'm assuming it is a random drawing/raffle. I'll check with Iggy.

      January 11, 2014

  • keith w.

    I think Saturday would be great since not many ppl roam the campus. Also are we gonna play cod black ops 2 and ssbm?

    September 16, 2013

    • Joseph L.

      January 9, 2014

    • Joe

  • Kevin L.

    Hey guys. This is going to be my first meetup with this group. The games hosted for Smash Bros. will be casual, right?

    January 8, 2014

    • Joseph L.

      don't worry about it, pretty much all of us casually play. They usually have no items, with only certain stages, but it's not like we play it competitively.

      1 · January 8, 2014

    • Joe

      Although there are a few real good players.

      January 9, 2014

  • Joseph Alexander A.

    Is next meet up at satellite or usuall uc place?

    January 5, 2014

    • Joe

      No there's no deadline. Let me check that link.

      January 8, 2014

    • Joe

      Ok, the link should work now. I'll send out a reminder about any detail changes.

      January 8, 2014

  • Berenice

    Hey guys. This is gonna be my first meetup. How do these events usually go?

    January 7, 2014

    • Joe

      It's a pretty chill atmosphere where gamers of different levels play a variety of games and genres. We also talk about comics, anime, movies, or whatever and sometimes after-hour at a restaurant.

      January 8, 2014

    • Berenice

      Sounds great. I'll definitely be going.

      January 8, 2014

  • Joe

    Let me know any other games I should suggest if you can.

    December 5, 2013

  • Joe

    Looks like the date they're aiming for is January 17th. They're still working out the new network etc. I spoke with the faculty representative and they're discussing potential prizes. Would a PS4 be better than several smaller prizes to give out? Also, does anyone play Rise of Nations or Quake 3?

    December 5, 2013

  • Joe

    UH hopes to have the network ready by next Friday, so there might be a LAN then and then a UH sponsored LAN event Nov 1st. Still waiting to confirm 100%. What games are those interested in participating planning to play?

    September 17, 2013

  • Joe

    I was thinking to try and set this LAN event up for sometime in mid to late September. Does anyone have a day they want to suggest? I was thinking Friday evening/night, Saturday anytime, or Sunday afternoon/evening.

    August 19, 2013

    • Elena E.

      I think most Fridays/Saturdays would be good.

      August 19, 2013

  • Elena E.

    If this happens before the 10th, I'll go!

    August 1, 2013

    • Joe

      Hey Elena, I haven't heard anything back regarding the LAN at UH. I think it will take place sometime early in UH's fall semester.
