if it is after 5:30 pm then I can not go out as I have things to do at night :\ but if you go may 3rd i am open ALL day or night
Well I might possibly be able to but I would be without car so I would have to beg a ride.
Just checking in.
May 3rd during the afternoon is good for me. Sister's birthday party is later that night, but she'll understand if I'm fashionably late.
I think we need a small inflatable pool and some green jello!
I think the Lan Center is a good idea depending on where everyone is located of course.
We could go play for 2-4 hours then hit up a Chilis or Fridays for some drinks and snackys to talk about the noobs.
Then if Big Hoppa is making us Dance I will bring the matching trash bags so we can all match in costume.
We could just meet up around...12:30...and have lunch?
Or you know, Iron Man comes out this weekend.
Give me about 2-3 hours and I will post a good LAN center, I was busy with clients so I actually worked hard all day long. Today looks like some quick programming of differentials and then I will get some time to check all of Houston.
Maybe someone can suggest a good Hot wingejoint after we get done with the noob beatdown? Wings and Beer is always good a combo.
Ok I this is what I have found after calling around for a place to hold out get together:
My first Choice for a LAN Center is called Wizards PC Games+
It will run about 18 bucks for 4 hours there is a chilis and a fridays down the street, but I can not find any hot wing joints near it. :\
They just opened last year so they got really decent hardware too. The address is:
3527 Hwy 6 Sugar Land, Tx. 77478
If this one is too far away for everyone the 2nd choice would go for:
its located at 402 west Grand Parkway in Katy.
This one has good hardware, full steam catalog, Chilis near by, no wing joint. Only issue is it would be 21 bucks for 4 hours, but its 24 for 6 hours. But I spoke with them and they would be glad to ear mark a few computers right next to each other so we could set a time and then walk in.
If push came to shove then we can cop out and goto Combatex they have a full steam catalog but the hardware makes panda sad, but it's good enough for TF2 just not on ultra pretty mode like I'm use too
For 4 hours the cost would be 17 bucks and they are located at 12288 Westheimer Suite 250 in Houston. They have a Hot wing (Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar) joint really close and a chili/fridays down the road a bit.
So these are my recomendations, in order or prefrence. What do you guys think? I would pick one but I do wot know where everyone is in the city so we can just vote and then show up. Once we pick I call them up see if I can get reservations or discounts but if it is only 5 I would be hard pressed to get discounts, seems the magic number for this is 7+. Also we need to set a time also so if possible I can get them to preload all the games we are likely to play on machines that are close by. After calling around the general busy times for these places seems to be night, so if we get in around 4-5pm we can get in quick and the place will then fill up quick so we do not have to internet pub it.
So I guess vote on your Favorite LAN Center and post what games you want to play, they all got XBOX stuff too so maybe we can get one with GTA4 and do Multiplayer that way as well.
I'm partial to whatever is closer to Canada, since I'm, you know, closer to Canada, but I'd be willing to haul me keister to wherever is best for the group.
Is this going to be an evening event? I'd prefer afternoon, but I may be able to swing evening.
Noon till whenever is best for me But you guys are not picking LAN Centers The one closest to Canada would be the Core.
I'm fine with Sugarland if Westheimer's rigs are old and busted. Grand Parkway is far away like Africa.
(I live in Montrose )
I might not be able to make it anywhere til about 12:30, F y'all's I's.
Yeah, Katy is like...I dunno...the Australia of Texas. Far away and hard to get to, although the funny accents can be worth it.
I'd be cool with Sugarland I guess. At least it's only an hour flight from Conroe.
Unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to make this one. My Saturday is booked.
Ok! So it seems like its going to be Sugarland 12:30-1pm for 4 hours? If So I will call them up tomorrow and see if I can book us some computers and or an xbox to play.
Lunch first, or no?
Looks like I'm back out. AC went out yesterday and the guy is coming out saturday afternoon. This...is going to cost a lot.
I won't be able to show up this time, either. My trip to Houston will happen on May 15th.
I'm ok to delay it for a bigger crowd, we can time it for kill trash so we can get 6 as well. But lunch is fine it people want that.
We can always goto see Ironman the Tinseltown off hollister on the 290 has 4 dollar matine tickets and lots of good eats right next door.
