This weekend started off a long end-of-year gaming festivile.
Several people made Jason's house their home during this time
through the New Year.
Some of our biggest news comes from Torgo/Galewind who finally
upgraded to an AMD64 system. Oh, he's also engaged. :) Congratiulations
to Chris Gregory (Galewind) & Cathy (Epee)! We celebrated
with an outing to a diner.
So we pooled our money together and bought Jason a christms
present: A Kitchenaide Mixing Bowl. A lot of discussion went
to find something for him that wouldn't be a short-term gift
(like a hard drive) or something lan-party related. Geist gets
the credit for coming up with this gift idea.
This year the Chinese Gift Exchange makes a comback. Very successful
and a lot of fun as usual. Some good gifts showed up, and a
couple intersting ones. Something about Pirates Popping.
Rise of Nations still has a dethgrip on some people. Quake
3 with the OSP mod still holds our attention in deathmatch &
especiialy CTF. Call of Duty is a great game, but it gets trying
after too long with Team Dethmatch over and over. The Ship level
is a lot of insane fun.
Burnout 2 is probably forever a staple game at our lan. Causing
accident was never so addicting! But yeah, great game to play
with a group of people.
Air hockey. Mmmm. Definitly one of the coolest things at Japi's
house. Besides Japi's house. And his couch. Wait, the couch
