    If you don't mind, I'll put you next to prosg at 9 - just because seats 6 and 7 have clutter under the table so it saves me time if I have less stuff to move tonight. Anubis said he might come along, so there's still one more seat ready at 8.

    And yeh, a few games we introduced over previous events - others (Soldat, Gear Up, Zero Gear, Flatout 2) just haven't been on for a year or two, and NeoTokyo is totally new to us. Could go either way on that one - I watched some videos and it looked alright, but sometimes just gotta try it live and see how it runs. Goldeneye and Fistful of Frags that we started doing at the last few events have been brilliant - I honestly think the deathmatch on desparadoes map on fistful of frags is my favourite bit of LAN in the past couple of events, it's so much fun.

    Gutted though that the new version of Sourceforts is not out yet, would love to run that again. Maybe at the August-ish event!

    Bryan! You forgot a fightstick!

    (If you don't mind - I've got one here but it might be cool to have 2 of them setup if you don't mind sharing, but if not, I've got a couple of 360 pads for StreetFighter as a fallback)

    2 more items for the list also,yourself and a dvi/dp cable could be handy unless Bryan is sporting one of those fancy wirless cards/display combos.

    Regarding seat Graeme,that's fine I was just chasing elbow space.

    I came, I saw, I almost gamed with everyone else, I left extremely early. I was afraid I would do this.

    I was in my own very personal hell.

    Will I come back to another Kustom LAN? I don't know.

    Well, y'know you're always welcome back. : /


    Otherwise, excellent event, Graeme, thank you very much! (^^,)

    As always, LAN favourites like Armagetron, Warsow, Flatout and Fistful of Frags were an absolute blast! It was was a bummer Dodgeball and NeoTokyo didn't really work out but we can always try again in future. Goes without saying but ... I AM THE KING OF IRONFIST! :D

    I've got a Plan B for Dodgeball - I'd tried it once before just using the technique to register a server and it worked fine, but it didn't play 'ball' yesterday. I found last night a setup to create a local version of their servers, but it was going to take a while so I'll implement it for next time, will get this game going one way or another!

    NeoTokyo was worth a shot but it was just alright, it just didn't feel like anything new we hadn't played before in every other game.

    I'm hoping for next time that the new version of Sourceforts is ready for public release as I've been watching the development of that and it looks great, would be such a good game to have working again, and if Blackwake has been on sale by then too then those would be great things to put in the line-up next time.

    I'll jump back over in the next few days to post some media from snaps / videos taken.

    I really need to make a point of getting some media uploaded, I took a few shadowplay captures and photos. Will try to do so soon but my life is pretty much being consumed by website work at the moment.

    I recorded some flat-out 2 with mic audio along with a few other games which I can upload to my YouTube.
