Gaming Nexus: Things to do at a LAN Party When You Suck
LAN parties are supposed to a lot of fun with your buddies, but always being the first one killed at the FPS could really be a downer. While I manage to hold my own (my weakness is RTS) here a some highlights of Game Nexus’ outrageously hilarious suggestions to keep the party going while the other guys hunt each other down.
Console games are top of the list. A stirring round Guitar Hero II works off the frustration of getting tea bagged for the 13th time in Halo 2. Sometimes GHII pales to the real thing. If you’ve got real talent and a real guitar, you can jack into your PC with the help of a SoundTech LightSnake and provide your own heavy metal soundtrack for Unreal Tournament 2K4.
Snacking is always a good way to use your down time. Whether it’s the real deal or light for you, beer and pizza with copious amounts of highly caffeinated beverages is just the thing.
But why stop there. You can always distract you opponents by strafing their heads with your HobbyTron.com Hornet 3 Mini RC Helicopter or if the weather is beautiful and wind calm, the HobbyTron.com RC AH-64 Apache 4 CH Electric Helicopter. Honestly this guy’s got some really cool toys.
Of course you could appoint yourself as score keeper. An Excel spreadsheet should do the trick to record your epic battles. Make sure to give yourself a generous handicap though. Read the full article on Gaming Nexus.
