The Halloween fragging! I'm not really sure what went
on here with all the pirates and penguins crashing and
vexing everyone's system. But we got in quite a lot of
fragging anyhow. Lots of Unreal Tournament for sure, with
an attempted linkup of a couple of outside gamers, Teufel
and Mad Monk. Unfortunatly the ping rate sucked, so their
piece of action was rather lame. We don't know if this
is from the cable modem directly, the server setup, or
just an excuse for sucking on their part, but we will
be looking into it. we also tried Starcraft over the network
to some degree of success, everntually the network lag
took its toll however.
Sam Brendel brought his server which ws running Unreal
Tournament and Quake 3 servers. Having the server always
running makes it a lot easier to get the games going.
Later at night there was a round or two of Tribes 2, but
I don't think it was played much.
Shroud brought his Dance Dance Revolution 5th Remix for
the PSX, and with Fat Rat's really cool pads, we had a
lot of rounds of them, though no pictures to show for
it since everyone ran away when someone tried to take
a picture of the players. Lamers!
Windsinger unvieled a project of his at this one too:
an Unreal Tournament port of Fragduke. And it went over
very well, I think we played that one map the rest of
the night. I waited until everyone was playing UT, including
the two remote fraggers before I brought this sucker out.
And it held up well thankfully. Look for it in the Maps
section of our website!
Red-Eye the Pirate and Fat Rat had two midnight marathons
of Super Mario Brothers 3 for the NES, both showing off
their mad paltformer skillz and lameness at the inside
tacticts to the game.
Speaking of console action, Japi now has a NES,GameAxe,
Gameboy, SNES, Sega Genesis, Two Turbo Grpahic-16's, Atari
2600, 7800, Colecovision w/2600 Module, Playstation and
a Dreamcast. All hooked up to a shitty, trash-picked,
pirated TV set.
And for the closing, the food for the evening consisted
of Spicy Sausage, and Homemade Meatballs for the main
course. Really kick-ass meatballs actually. Lotsa Pathmark
Blue soda thanks to Keith, Toxic Waste and many other
fattening things. (:
