So I think I’m at 17-12 now in Fight Night. There are times I log on to play a few games, and I just get whalloped round after round. Or when I’m completely ahead in the scorecards, but I get put to the canvas in the tenth round. Talk about frustrating.
Anyway, the counter on the Digital Overload site now reads ten days until the event. It’s surreal. I remember talking about trying to get a CAD LAN party going in early 2004, and I quickly realized how much organization it takes. And now, thanks the the great guys at Blind Ferret, here we are, a little over a week from our first event.
We have a list of games that people are planning on bringing. I haven’t listed mine there, so I’ll rattle off the games I’ll be gearing up to play that weekend.
Empire At War: Definitely, just because it’s new, and I haven’t had any time to play it. between work, Fight Night and EQ2, I hardly get any EaW in. So I’ll have that at the ready for DO.
Starcraft- I haven’t played Starcraft in about four years now, so I’ll suck pretty bad, but I’m looking forward to the nostalgia.
F.E.A.R- I enjoy the multiplayer of this game. Much moreso than the single player experience.
Battlefield 2- Again, a game I haven’t played in close to a year, but it should be great fun to get this on the LAN and not worry about lag.
There’s still a little bit of time left to register, but the official hotels might be sold out at this point. But if you can make it to Rhode Island, you should come. It’s going to be a fun weekend.
If PC games aren’t your thing, you can bring a tv and a console and hook those up. Or play board games.
And if you can’t make it, well, there’s always next year!
