Yes, it was my only one as well. It was probably one of the greatest nights of my life.
I was only a kid at the time, probably 12 or 13.
My mothers church friend told my mum her husband was doing some "computer party thing" and they knew I loved computers so they asked me if I wanted to go too.
Ended up staying over at some guys house, with my my mums friends husband and a bunch of other cunts he knew, up until like 4 in the morning playing video games with each other and eating junk food. Was so fucking fun.
>grade 9 intro to computer science class >hey man you coming to the LAN party? >the fuck is a LAN party? >oh it's where people come and play video games after class >say yeah expecting Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Street Fighter >I get there >everybody is fat and has a neckbeard (and they were all grade 12s) >we spend 30 minutes filesharing Halo 1 >what the fuck is Halo? >for some reason the game would display the first message in chat every minute nonstop, the second match was spammed with me saying "hey?" while everybody kept asking out loud "who's this moron who set the message?" >only got a few kills the entire night, lead the room in deaths >everybody made fun of me for sucking at a game I've never heard of on a PC which I hadn't gamed on since I was 7 and had my parents take away my favourite games (Doom and Zombie Wars) for being too violent >went home and vowed to never go to another after school event PC gamers, not even once.
>>291172657 Uh the first like actual like go to someones house with my computers would have been like I dunno 12 years ago. But way back when my dad built me 3 equal spec machines that we had in a line so me and my 2 other friends I hung out with way back when could all play everquest and counter-strike, diablo 2, sc:bw and wc3 etc together. MFW I just realized they have used that same ISP for almost 15 years now.
>Each LAN always meant having to reinstall some shoddy floppy driver to get networking to fucking work properly in win 9x >Bluescreens everywhere! >Fucking troll games needing IPX-support >That one dude who always came with a half-assembled skeleton of a tower, and spent most of the LAN trying to get his shit even up and running (mostly unsuccesful). >That eager fucker who installed the win2k RC and couldn't connect to anyone or anything, but refused to switch back Those were great times, but damn did you have to work for your fun back then...
Yes, I do. We spent hours trying to figure out how to create bots in Counter-Strike until we finally found it out. Within a year we even had so many people hooked that we had a little tournament with three teams in a little shed. I wish these times came back.
My brother worked at a computer shop and they made some lan parties on the weekend. We have played some UT, Q3, HL DM, starcraft and traded some pc games it was really fun. Too bad most recent games nowadays can't be played offline.
Yeah, we went to the midnight launch of Burning Crusade then played it together at my friend's house, best week I've ever had. I'm not sure how many tons of pizza and coke we consumed but it was enough for a lifetime.
Ive never had enough friends for a full blown LAN party. I did host LAN parties in my highschool computer room during lunch and after school. The computer room was off limits unless you had a class in there and it was in the very back of the school where nobody went. I had to steal the key from the custodians office and sneak in there to put cracked versions of CS, SC, WC3, Quake 3 and UT on all of the computers which took days. Since I was the only person in the school with the computer room key, I was the leader of a fucking cartel by the end of senior year and I never got caught by any teachers.
We all gave ourselves goofy names too. "Grapist", "BIG DADDY SPLASH", "Joe is a faggot", "800 pound gorilla". I gotta say, LAN parties had god tier banter. Imagine 20 people just shit talking for hours over counterstrike.
So yea, top gear korea. It's kinda interesting from a what the fuck is this, and the fact that while I don't speak korean and it's not subbed you still know EXACTLY whats going on. Take a guess what these guys did and are going to do.
A professor at my uni was one of the founders of that company. He once spent a night browsing the rooms anonymously and recording people, then compiled it all into a presentation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=902tReEAIRw
>New years 3v3 >16 years old >dressed in our best we went out, our parents thinking we'd go to a party or some shit >stayed at our local lan shop till morning >lots of cs, wc3, jedi academy multilayer, all the good stuff >being new years they kept bringing us treats and drinks
first time I remember staying up really late was when my best friend was over for a sleepover. It was the first weekend or so when I just got World of Warcraft back in 2005. He had already had it for a while but he brought his laptop and we played all night. My parents said we weren't allowed to stay up long but we did anyway like total badasses. That night was the first time I ventured into Barrens, and learned how to quick reply to whispers
>>291175580 Heh, interesting. I used mplayer mainly for Alien vs. Predator MP and remember being shocked over how advanced that software was for its time. Fucking miles better than shit like Microsoft's horrible "Zone" thing.
>>291176327 The biggest issue I had with that episode was that it was literally a 1 hour long roadtrip, they didn't go to the studio at all. No new cars, no news, nothing. The other obvious we don't have the budget stuff is the drag races they are doing. They seem to literally be I know a guy that has X car, he wants to race it vs some other guy who has Y car.
>>291175967 Strategy at LANs are the best because no one is rushing. In the 7 hour game my teammate built a massive fortified city which was attacked by both of our enemies, but their forces were stopped halfway through. While one half was destroyed by them and rebuilt as an outpost, we could hold the other side. It was like a AOEII east-west Berlin.
OMFG IT WAS ALWAYS AWESOME. THANKS FOR REMINDING ME.
It was in a cybercafé (with powerfull computers for the time) my brother's friend had (my brother worked there). We would plan before, and then when he would close the cyber cafe for people at night, we would go in and pull all-nighters.
The owner, his brother, me, my brother, and other 2 friends of us (some times even more), playing CS, HALF LIFE, TF, and all sorts of games (mostly cs and halflife).
My nickname was OvO_Pequeno ("small egg (testicle)" in portuguese).
Kind of a LAN party. In middle school we had a computer teacher that never spoke much. One day he put Quake on all the computers and any student with decent grades were able to stay overnight and play. Another teacher bought consoles just for the occasion.
