LAN parties run smooth when everyone has the same games. We play a lot of LAN party classics that are either very cheap or free to play.
Please come prepared with the following games installed and ready to go.
- Left 4 Dead 2 This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns.
- Zombie Panic! Source Survival-horror Half Life 2 mod.
- Unreal Tournament 2004 Classic LAN party tournament FPS with lots of game modes. We play Capture the Flag, Death Match, and Onslaught (a control point map with vehicles).
- Unreal Tournament GOTY (UT99) The best LAN party death match game from the CRT days. It still holds up as a LAN party staple today. We can provide a copy for you at the LAN.
- Garry's Mod A sandbox mod based on Half Life 2. We'll be playing mini games such as The Hidden, PropHunt (Hide'n'Seek), Murder, and Trouble in Terrorist Town.
- Fistful of Frags An action packed first person source mod set in the Wild West times. A unique combination of non stop action and slow but powerful weaponry. Fistful of Frags is a bit slower paced than the usual gungame.
- Widelands A free and open source RTS that is easy to get started with and play.
- Team Fortress 2 Nine distinct classes provide a broad range of tactical abilities and personalities. Constantly updated with new game modes, maps, equipment and, most importantly, hats!
- Armagetron A Tron style multiplayer light cycle game. Work with your team to box in other players. Last team standing wins.
- Super Animal Royale A top-down 2D battle royale with cute animals.
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive A LAN party classic turned e-sport. We'll be playing Arms Race, aka Gun Game, and classic CT v.s. T demolition game modes.
- Half-Life 2: Death Match Classic team deathmatch based on Half-Life 2. Pick up a gun and shoot or use your grav gun and throw toilets.
- Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II Pirates, Vikings, and Knights II pits three teams against each other in a fight for gold. An FPS with melee weapons, crossbows, flintlock weapons, parrots, and explosive barrels.
Feel free to bring your own games to share as well.
This is an overnight LAN party. Some of us will sleep at the LAN with an air mattress, sleeping bag, and pillow. However if you want to go home for some rest and come back in the morning our dedicated staff will be awake all night to watch over the equipment.
There will be a chair, power strip, and an ethernet cable provided to you.
You will need to bring your own...
- Monitor Cable and Power Cord
- Computer Power Cord
- Keyboard and Mouse
- Mouse Pad
If you have an extra set of cables you can save yourself from crawling under your desk. You're also welcome to bring your own chair if you want to go through the trouble to be more comfortable. That way you can load up your chair and roll everything in!
