Dan & Dan Birthday LAN - Planning GO!

Postby Pebby on Tue Jun 23, 2009 1:55 pm

Edit: the 17th-18th is the choice, and a new thread is up! Sound off if you're planning on coming viewtopic.php?f=26&t=926

It's back, it's going to happen, and here's where we plan it. I am going to vote for the only appropriately epic combination, a super 2-day LANstravaganza on Friday (starting in the evening) and Saturday. Here are some weekends where that would work for me:

July 17th-18th
July 24th-25th
August 28th-29th

Let's get a roll call on who could come on those days - the two July dates would be my preferences at the moment. Depending on how many people could come, I might cook something for us, or maybe I'll just make a dessert. Who knows! All people are invited if you have some friends, of course, and if you can only make it one day like on Saturday, that's cool too. If we can all only do 1 day, maybe we shall switch it to that instead. I feel like we haven't done a 2 day event in a while, so I'm aiming for the moon.

Okay, begin the discussion!

Edit: Mark the dates you like here! http://doodle.com/vp7q69ihtw45q3pr

I can do any of those days but I will cry if I have to wait until August!

I would like to attend. What kind of gaming will be going on? I can make the July 17th-18th & August 28th-29th dates only.

Well, some things that have been popular with the party people lately were TF2, Demigod (it's share-able now), the ever-lasting Rise of Nations, and, hey... I dunno what else. I'll play anything! We should play that plane game I installed on Greg's computer too. You know we haven't played CoD4 in a long time, and it was a lot of fun... I have extra copies if anyone needs one.

I vote for CoD4 the entire time

Also if we save our HoN invites we could do that!

Marie and I have updated the Doodle thing with our availability and, in light of some recent news, I think we should give some consideration to trying some Battlefield Heroes. And of course we're behind TF2.. I'm a bit interested in HoN (if it's still in Beta) and possibly some RoN.

I'd rather play Battlefield 1943 if we were going to do Battlefield. :D

It's a game in closed beta and unfortunately any details about it, even the genre, is under NDA. Pebby, 3e_Jeb and I are in it, and hopefully by LAN time we'll have enough invites between us to get everyone in it.

I have not heard from Dan L yet, but I shall pressure him about his answer for the date. So far, the first weekend is looking best.

Also, I just learned some cool info this weekend. Stardock/GPG released a LAN only version of Demigod which patches and keeps itself up to date. Since I own a copy, I can download a bunch of LAN versions for us to play! I went to a LAN this weekend that had a lot of demigod and it was a blast - much more newbie friendly than dota/HoN.

I'd also like to put in some votes for Quake 3 Rocket Arena, which was a lot of fun last weekend, and Jedi Knight 2!

I have been cut off from the series of tubes for a bit, but I am back. Furthermore, I agree with everything that has ever been said, even in private, about the Dan & Dan Birthday Lan.

I want to go but my laptop died and all I have is an EeePC. :( ...So I can't really play anything all that recent.

So I have been telling some people this, but the OFFICIAL date is going to be the 17th-18th. I'll make an exciting new post shortly once I make some more Gather Information checks.
