    LAN Game Suggestions?

    Right, okay, listen to this: unicycle robots with moustaches play dodgeball in a Tron-esque world with disco lights and a soundtrack which sounds like something straight out of Graeme's playlists.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball.

    I've played it with bots on the demo and it was pretty good fun but mutiplayer looks utterly amazing. Unfortunately, the demo doesn't allow for multiplayer, though, it's only £6.99 on Steam and I truly feel we'd play this game over and over again and it would lead to many screams (looking at Anubis). : )



    This next suggestion is just a straight copy-paste from a thread I started a while ago when I first saw this but still reckon it's worth a look:

    Spotted a firecracker of a shooter on Steam this morning and I think it epitomises everything that Kustom LANs are about: fun, chaos, laughter and endless screaming.

    Screen Cheat: http://store.steampowered.com/app/301970

    Screen Cheat (as the name might suggest) is all about screen cheating. It's up to four players, everyone is invisible and everyone's screen is viewable. You can only win by actively screen cheating. Sounds simple but it looks like absolute mayhem. Check out the first video on the Steam Store Page for an idea of how fun it might be. Definitely think this would be great for a LAN. : )

    heehee, I had the rollerderby one saved in my LAN ideas folder already - pretty much planning to force everyone to get that for Easter LAN. It does look most excellent.

    Screencheat does look fun but I suspect there's a danger that with the cost of it we'd have limited uptake, unless it was revolved around a theme night maybe as it tends to be only people enthused for a game that would come along then anyway?

    Upper floor is absolutely *freezing* at the moment. We'll get race LAN scheduled up soon though.

    Aye, Screencheat is a little pricey for a LAN game (I'm sure it was actually cheaper before) but it might be worth it if a nice deal comes up, especially on the bundle of four copies.

    But, yes! Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball looks as though someone came to a LAN, thought, "I know how to make this place 20% cooler" and then developed a game specifically for us. It's like Tron, it has robots, there's lots of wacky gameplay and the soundtrack is amazing!

    10/10 GotY Would buy for LAN. :D

    Just to forewarn, entry to Easter LAN will be £16.99 but includes a FREE Steam Gift of Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball.

    Top value.

    In jest, but seriously we should sort out 4 pack buys on that one.

    Seriously, though, I'm happy to buy this for the Easter LAN as it can only be good.

    Sorry, THE GAME has been hyped so much I'm no longer interested in it and don't plan to get it any time soon.

    Gonna pass, sorry. Unless GTA V becomes a go-to LAN title, I won't be buying it – certainly not on release. : /

    Along a similar vein, though, what about a Just Cause 2: Multiplayer theme night? I reckon that nearly all of us have JC2 and if not, I've got three spare keys on Steam for it. Server's a doddle to set up and, much like GTA, there's racing and explosions and general dafty antics galore. : )

    Robocraft is a great game but everyone would need to have their robocraft prebuilt before the lan as it takes some time

    I have to agree. I'd go for it in a bigger LAN where you have time to build, test and refine your battle vehicle but not for KPC LANs, they're just too short.

    Damn it, I just said that!

    Seriously though, there's a few of us over in the community I'm part of playing the hell out of this of late. It's indescribable fun.
