FamiLAB LAN Party - Questions for You!
« on: January 08, 2017, 05:37:52 PM »
  After the last two months of LAN party-ing, I wanted to check with the rest of the Lab community to get some input on the event. I know that that this last LAN party was poorly advertised on Slack/Forums and poorly organized by myself, so I'd like to make sure the next event goes smoothly and is of course, hella fun for everyone!

*Edit: I've added a Google Survey to collect responses, so please fill out the form here: https://goo.gl/forms/8YhTblyswnaFh7so2




1) So far we've played Saturday afternoon into the wee morning, but there's interest in a Friday evening time slot as well, so what day for a LAN party works best for you (Friday evenings or Saturday afternoon to evening)?
Keep in mind that you don't need to stay for the entire time nor come at the time the event starts or not be allowed to leave before it ends. If the event is Saturday from 12PM-12AM, you can come for a 4 hour portion of it or whenever you'd like!


2) What genre/types of games are you most interested in playing?
Here's a list of LAN Games that are typically played at events. Some examples of genres are:


Action/FPS: Killing Floor, Quake 3, Overwatch, Unreal Tournament, Battlefield, Serious Sam


RTS/Strategy: Command and Conquer series, Civilization series, OpenRA, Atomic Bomberman,


Racing: Track Mania Nations Forever, Armagetron, Need For Speed series


RPG: Borderlands 2, Dead Island
 


Open World: Minecraft, Space Engineers, Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas


Other titles that have been discussed are:
Artemis Bridge Simulator, Civilization V, Rocket League, C&C Generals/Zero Hour, Battlefield Bad Company 2


Here's are a couple lists of LAN party games (and prices!):

Anyway, let me know what you all think! LAN parties are fun with more people in attendance and faaaar more fun with alot of people!   ;D

One option I've seen played by the Yogscast and had a blast laughing my ass off at their shenanigans watching it on youtube, is https://www.openttd.org/en/


A friend got this for me as a belated Christmas gift and i've yet to crack into it but it has Multiplayer, http://store.steampowered.com/app/267750/ "Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown"


Then there is also another steam title http://store.steampowered.com/app/236690/ "Blood Bowl 2" Although that can be a bit pricey with all the little DLC bits to get the teams you might want.


And right now if you grab the Humble Monthly bundle you can get Xcom 2 cheap, and play multiplayer head to head matches against each other. http://store.steampowered.com/app/268500/
