    Planned Games List

    Altitude
    Counterstrike Global Offensive: Arsenal, and Chicken Defusal*
    Warsow
    Minimum*
    Hedgewars
    Team Fortress 2
    Grand Theft Auto IV
    Fistful of Frags
    Robot Roller Disco Derby*
    Armagetron
    The Hidden Source
    Blur
    Garrys Mod Prop Hunt

    Stuff with a * is pending testing - I'm aiming to give these all a quick blast in the coming few days and will confirm the final game list then.

    Unless I'm told otherwise, keeping GTA IV on there as only a few will have GTA V, and we'll do a theme night for V this month or next month anyway.

    Minimum and Robot Roller Disco Derby have pack offers, so will see what we can organise between people on those.

    About GTAIV, does it work anymore since I believe GFWL no longer works on it I know its a LAN game so could be bypassed anyway.

    Shame we all couldnt use the downgraded versions since they have the higher 60fps cap rather than the 55fps cap on later versions.

    Can we push this back a week or two? Admittedly I've not promoted it much beyond this thread / there's not been a big reaction and I'm behind on work at the moment. A dose of the cold / man flu (call it what you will) in the past couple of weeks hasn't helped and I've just been lacking in will / energy.

    10th or 17th especially good or bad for anyone?

    Also I want to add this game - http://store.steampowered.com/app/94400/

    (I think argh-its-ben suggested it before but it was pricey but now it's cheap)

    Either day is good for me, but would prefer 17th.

    Same

    Oh, and Niddhog is essentially a projector game so we don't really need everyone to buy. We could do 1v1 fun tourney on it :)

    Fair point. I'd assumed on pairing people up - just depends how many people are there though, if it's a lot it could take a while to get through.

    Let me work on that one.

    Have done 1 v 1 during LANs before although that was on the 2 day event where time was more generous.

    17th for me too, but as always depends on a lift from Dex

    Guys, sorry, but realistically I'm going to have put this off for a while. I can't get enough time to work on accounts just now and got hit with a fine last year for being late with the submission and I can't afford to repeat that.

    The couple of evenings worth of prep time and a whole day out running the LAN is going to have to wait - I thought I could fit it in but it's looking less likely.

    Will reschedule, but realistically it's going to be around mid June before I get this work cleared (as much as I'd love a day out to play games!)

    Really apologise for mucking about. Every week / day I have a schedule of what I plan to achieve and it always gets chopped around as I get diverted to other things that weren't planned, and then don't get time to do what I should have been doing, snowball effect etc...

    Already have a good accountant, but it's all the reconciling / book keeping that has to be done before passing the stuff to them that I'm doing - otherwise the bill would be many thousands.

    It's a lot of tedious work and it's soul-destroying, but doing it myself saves money, so that's priority :)

    Hmm, only other option would be involve kidnap, a basement, and some light persuasion.
