Dont make me buy MW2!

Postby GK_CheeZey » Sat Nov 14, 2009 1:05 pm

Alright guys?
This is my first lan for a couple of years... I've tried to get to others but they have always seemed to fall on the wrong dates for me.

Back to my original statement..
I'm trying to boycott this along with a good number of other people because Activision have kicked PC gamers in the head with no dedicated server or mod support.
I say 'trying' because I hear the singleplayer is good and I suppose LAN play will be good too, but in the long term this game wont be worth the money, especially as L4D2 is coming out in a couple of days.

I have however got all the other COD games which I love to bits, played in clans,leagues etc

So, is MW2 going to be a major feature of this lan? I hope not.

I'm hoping to get a good sesh of L4D2, L4D, TF2,

Any others I need to re-install? Ut2004? COD2, COD4 CODWAW, OFPDR, How about BFseries?
I'm pretty crap at multiplayer supcom and c&c.. its not much fun playing against uber-wishys and getting wiped in 5mins but I have those too.

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to seeing you all and sampling a scofftastic breakky roll!

Major feature? Doubt it. Everything is done by IWnet, no dedicated servers mean's no LAN play. Unless the private matches has LAN built in?

As for the games you will need to install if you have them:
CS:S
HL2:DM
L4D
L4D2
TF2
Synergy (Doesn't get played that much but is great fun)
Hidden:Source (Played this a couple of LAN's ago, loved it)
DIPRIP (Again played couple of LAN's ago)
SupCom:FA
DoW:II (Possibly)
C&C3
CoH
UT3
UT2004
GTA4 (I will certainly be playing this now i have a pc which can cope with it)

I think that covers the lot.

I honestly think its too early to tell. Either way it should at least be given a chance at the LAN. Many games that prove to be wank online make fantastic little LAN-only games....might just be one of the those. Time will no doubt tell!

I don't know if others agree, but I don't think the difference in gameplay with L4D2 (or at least the demo) is sufficent for me to shell out another 30 quid. So I'll be playing L4D

Well Wishy, you're right, but you'll end up playing singleplayer :)

C&C3 I have and I'm not that good so if you want a 1v1 game for noobs I'll be there ;)
I should have pretty much every game I own installed by the LAN.

This game it over-hyped to actually buy it.
