2009 and lanpartys are still fun

I know it has been a while, but stil hear me out crew, read the read me for once...

For a couple of weeks now we (with "we" I mean me and some friends), have been making a lanparty every couple of days.
I can remember the times of the lanpartys, it seems like ages ago, but it has only been like four or five years. At first we were a group of guys here in Uruguay only united by our passion for playing multiplayer, then the Lanparty.uy forum was created with the objective of making a 100 PC�s lan a reality in the country. And they succeeded.
So what drove me away from massive lanparty�s? It was that it looked like they droped on schedule with exams, they lasted a weekend and you would end up in a creepy state not far in the evolutionary line from a zerling.
And then the internet on broadband came and is far more easy to play from home without moving the PC, and lately is STEAM and more STEAM powering my online PC gaming.

So it was a while since my last LAN.
The problem is, most of my friends dont share my love for the videogames. In fact I dont have any close friends with STEAM, or with a gaming capable PC. So the other day I found my brother and one of them trying to establish a LAN at home to play Age Of empires 2 (yeah, I know...). So I decided to take the lead and at least install Warcraft 3 since is a game that plays well on the laptops or even netbooks.
It was a fast setup, nowadays with wifi, laptops playing an old game is fairly easy. So is easy to install and easy to get everyone out and go to sleep.

Now the photos:

I know it seems complicated, but that is only three UTP cables and one is for the internet, all the other PC�s where connected over a wifi.

I dont have photos of all the food we ate or the drinks, a shame...

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
