Great Multi-player Gaming

In the past half year, we’ve possibly been graced with two of the greatest multi-player games ever.  Both are sequels to previously great games, but both take things to a whole new level.

Modern Warfare 2Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released back in November and broke records as the fastest selling game of all time.  Popular on both consoles and PC’s it became an instant hit.

May Day, May Day!

As we have the previous 2 May Day Bank Holidays, Lanarchy attended the St Marks Church Hall Family Fun Day in Watford.  As usual we attracted all the young lads wanting to play computer games while their parents looked round the different stalls.

Although we don’t really have anything to gain from this, its nice for us to be able to give a little something back to the venue that has given a home to 30 or so LAN events.

While yesterday was a hot, but overcast day, today was sunny and bright along with the heat.  The shorts go on and the air conditioner came out!  As did the ghetto blaster while me and Nurcan headed into the garden to move the lawn and rip out weeds.  it took a couple of hours hard work, but it has started to take shape.  A few more hours and we should be ready for a summer BBQ/pool party!
