I went to a ConXion gaming center today for the first time in Rockville Maryland.....very nice....Hyundai 90+ screens and 6800's in each one. Like 40 stations....very well done. Very nice quality and good poeple....no I do not work for them....they host a lan party every sun and mon for BF2!!
Its cool they open fairly early for a weekend and the owner will game right there next to you...he played WoW next to me and we chatted for an hour or so...cool guy.
I told him they need to have BEER! He said he wish they could, but city wouldnt let them...he advised me to bring a ice-cooler in my car
It was fine, I am so used to my "Natural" keyboard that was tough to get used to the old type, I would bring your own mouse/keyboard if you have a special setup you like....other than that..it was Sweeeeet.
If you have a local gaming center like this, frequent it often, with friends if possible. South Korea and countless LAN parties have proven that gamers have more fun when they're in the same room. I looked at starting one of these here in Detroit a while back and decided the cons outweighed the pros currently. It's more of a culture thing here I guess. PC gaming is more of an "at home" thing than something you go out to do. I'd like to see that change though. One of my fondest gaming memories is playing 6 hours of DCF at a lan party sitting next to my teammates. Teamworks kind of comes like second nature in that enviroment. I'd love to see it reproduced somewhere on a regular basis and be able to make a living supporting it to boot.
It was cool, unfortunately I couldnt get on the same team the guys were on so I kept killing the guys around me so it wasnt much "team" play...but it was funny...they wouldnt get on the tacticalgamer server because for them
