Gaming Event (This Weekend)

Pimping this up a little, incase anyone else fancies it.

When i moved to Burton Upon Trent around 2+ years ago, i didn't know anyone in the area.. Came across a LAN thing based in Uttoxeter. (which is only 15-20 mins up the road)

I don't really game much on my PC, but when along as a way to waste a weekend.. Hadn't been to one of these LAN things since i was 16, Ended up being really good fun. Small community, being going for 10+ years. Owner is a nice chap etc. Due to size of the event, it's not really run for profit.. So i find the atmosphere allot better than when i went to Multiplay i5 event all those many years ago.

While it's a little on the "nerdy" side, it makes a nice change from going to the pub on the weekend.

URL in first post if you fancy going along, 17 tickets available and it's only £50 for the entire weekend.

Yer... might do. Might just have sex instead though.

Nah sounds alright. I've always been tempted to go to a LAN event but never had the balls to do it.

One thing, you take your PC obviously, but do you need the games as well?

I'm married, so no chance of sex for me.

Yeah take your own PC and games, some people bring their xbox 360s aswell.

It's nerdy but a good laugh, something different than the usual weekend. I don't stay up as late as some, only so much gaming I can handle..

They normally play stuff like COD4, TF2, Company of heroes, GRID, Counter strike source, Supreme commander 2, Starcraft.... Loads of others etc. If you shout out what game u wanna play, normally a good 10-20 people will be up for it

Boo!

dont forget the ribena

hey - pm me next time there is one in Burton I'm only up the road in Swadlincote so would probably check it out. Not sure if my PC is good enough though so might have to find out more about the 360 option or stick to c&c

Yeah - but there's nothing quite so special as when you see somebody flip out due to losing in person.
