Would you come to a LAN Party?
« on: April 14, 2006, 06:56:33 AM »

The President of ARG (Anime Resource Group), the parent company of FanimeCon, made a proposal to me and I thought I would post it and hear what all of you think about it.

Besides E-Gaming, what if we threw a LAN Party?

How popular do you think that idea would be?

If you answered "NO", above, can you tell me why you wouldn't join in?

If it's Bring-Your-Own-Box (BYOB), I wouldn't be able to do so (lest my parents slice me a hundred times with a fillet knife, screaming "WHAT ARE YOU DOING THEY'RE GOING TO STEAL OUR COMPUTER!1!")

If there are limited at-party computers, I may take interest, but at the moment, no.

Well i kinda agree with the post above, i think in earlier years they actually did have a LAN party at Fanime where they were playing Quake3 if i remeber correctly(the set up was so drasticly diffrent than mine so i had a hard time playing) if i had to BYOB i would have to have a laptop which i unfortunaly dont have to want to bring my comp from where i live to the Con.

BYOB would probably prove troublesome...I wouldn't mind so much if the b ox was like, strapped down to a table type thing so people can't take our computers at night. lol.

I'lll be busy with other stuff anyways. lol

Yes...but I want to play, not lead it =P

Question: at FanimeCon or a future FanimeCon based event? I do have a few good ideas...

We need a good LAN party out here. There hasnt been a good one in ages in the area at all.

All the lan partys I have been too people play until they are tired and take their PC back home/hotel room. That would be fun to have something like this especially if you have a good laptop to play a lot of FPS games. It would be awesome if we all played Doom and Doom II .. hahaha
