[S]ummer[s]LAN is a LAN party that is suppose to be like 150 people and 28 hours in San Fransisco. I recently attended this event and I really enjoyed it. For like 26 hours, we sat and played games. The sad part is that we typically didn't play one game. I am going to suggest that we have some sort of agenda were we put out what game we are going to play. Like include it into the package they give you in the beginning. Just a thought.

Well, as most LAN parties entail, I got a lot of games. I managed to get: Battlefield 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Caesar 4, Call of Duty 2, and Star Wars: Empire at War. I also got some movies: Grandma's Boy, Spider Man 3 and Beerfest. There were millions, but I really didn't want any others. Battlefield is awesome, as also UT2004 is. HP disappointed me, so I trashed it and am waiting for the torrent to finish. COD...idk about that yet. Star Wars is good, but EPIC!!!. I am just waiting for SupCom to eventually make space battle.

They also had a nice large raffle and practically every one won something. I won a Computer Case, A Zboard Fang Gamepad, 2 USB powered lights, a case fan and UV cable raps. That Case was definably a good thing, because I'm building a new computer and a case is like $100+. That is some good money saved on purchase cost, taxes and shipping. I am gonna put in an e6600, a nvidia 8600 GTS, 2GB of Ram and 400GB hard drive. Its kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for. I am still wondering if I should get a laptop for college. If I hold out for before I go, I should find some good deals. But I am just looking for a simple, not too good laptop for word, excel, powerpoint and FREE CELL!!!!!

I can Never think of a good title

I have started playing WoW again. Amazingly, its a really fun game. A good computer really helps it out, but playing is not a job, but fun. I think that the key there is if you cant always play it, it becomes a gift when you find time to. I'm playing my Paladin Akoris, of the server Kul Tiras. He is pretty good. I'm debating whether to keep him a twink, or to play him. I'm leaning towards the latter because I don't have any high level characters, so No time like the present to change that.

I have also just finished torrenting Civ 4 and it's expansion. It's a good game. Unfortunately, it's a pretty hard game to just pick up and play. There is no tutorial, unfortunately, and you just have to start playing. I have figured some stuff out. It's not like a RTS, because if you set up a line of guys, the enemy can just run right through you. It's difficult and takes some getting use to.

Xbox 360 is really shaping up to be the console to have this holiday season. With so many games coming out, it will be ridiculous. Madden 08, Halo 3, and GTA IV are expected to take up 1/3 of all games sales. Also the games Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Viva Pinata Party Animals, Rock Band, Guitar Hero 3, Splinter Cell Conviction, Bio Shock, Call of Duty 4, PGR4, Blue Dragon and many more are all coming out this holiday season. That's a lot of games.

  1. World of Warcraft
  2. Civilization 4: Warlords

I have been playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. It's so much more fun now that I know the hot keys. It's amazing how important that is to playing the game. I tried to play Supcom about half an hour, but when I started up the game, the internet cut out and the game was lost. Maybe its a sign?? Anyways, I was actually going to play Gears of War. It sounds alluring. Shadow Run is fun, but I think I need a break. I am going to a LAN party tomorrow and will play many a game. LATERZ

Tycooning and Running

Well, if you can't tell, all I really have been doing is playing two things. One is obvious top those who look right now at the Xfire profile. 28 Hours of Roller Coaster Tycoon 2. Yes. 28 hours. that game is the poop. I tried number 3. I don't know what I don't like, but it is not as fun as number 2. Maybe it's cause it doesn't run as fast as RCT2, or maybe it's because I don't know the keyboard shortcuts, but it's just not as fun. Granted, the AI is a million times better in RCT3 than RCT2, seen in customer purchases and Janitor patrols.

The other game I've been playing? Shadowrun. That game is so addicting. You don't want to play cause you've played it for 2 hours, then 2 hours later, you're playing again. It's insane!
