OOC: Lan fun!

Weekend over, back to work and EvE.

The LAN I had last weekend was a great success (read last post)
Thanks for all the great tips I got from letters, comments and on the forums, we had plenty games to try and had great fun!

A good thing I installed and tried most games first so that no unnessesary patching and debugging had to be done while we were all gathered, it all went smooth, install and go!

And now to announce the best game we had most fun/played most:
Empire Earth
-We were originally going for Civ4, but a few had never tried it, so then the going would be very slow in the beginning.. waiting for turns etc, so we needed a "turnless" game similar to that one.
I found in my old collection Empire Earth and we tried it, and got hooked.
Two participants even dreamt about it and came over early the next morning hungry for more!
I have since learnt that EE2 is also a great game, but EE3 is crap.. so we´ll be trying EE2 next time.

The other games we ended up playing the most out of all we tried were:
AvP2 -Awesome fun in multiplayer.. especially "survivor" mode.
MTASA -A Multiplayer mode for San Andreas, very fun racetracks or just dicking around in.
Serious Sam2 - I think it was SS2, not sure, but was very fun in the Co-op mode blasting aliens.
Smokin´ Guns -A free player-made wild west shooter.. old but fun!

We tried a bunch more, but those really stuck with us and worked well.
Overall great fun, sadly nobody won the contest of "best game tip" as I found the best game myself (!) :)
-But I´ll save up some more iskies and have a new contest.
Maybe i´ll find a random wormhole, hide there then put a bounty that whoever finds me gets a billion! :P "Find the fool in the wormhole!"
In EvE related news, my corp "The Python Cartel" has left the alliance of the Black Rabbits.
It is a little sad for me, as the training section of the rabbits introduced me to a life of piracy.. but it got too big for us, and the Pythons work best in a small agile group.

Ah well, makes life more interesting, more bullets to dodge!
