In Response To: KFL write up. (bryan newman)

: I'll keep it short. Korny has all the pics so I'm certain his will be waaay
: better than mine.

: So in short, it was a blast. This was the first LAN party I'd ever held for
: HBOers so it was an odd experience convincing my dad that we weren't
: inviting a bunch of internet creeps to the house. The term "Internet
: rapists" was used. He took some convincing (He is old). Despite a few
: annoying technical issues (later resolved), everything went great! Nobody
: died, so that's a plus.

I've never been described so aptly!

: In attendance: The fearless, god like 6'5", and strikingly
: "Sterling Archer-esque" (as reported by his peers) Bryan
: Newman...
: and some other people.

: people like: GreyThor
: KornyMunkey (And his GF)

We all know Sammy, no need to anonymize her. If anything she is more noteworthy than KornBorn :3

: LionHeart
: Padraig (The Scrumtrulescent)
: Revenant (And his GF)
: Lost Spartan

: It started on Saturday. We mainly sort of just hung out that day. Kentucky
: Fried LAN 2.0 will have to have the subtitle LAN/Bro-out.

lol yes, this is important for next time ;P Just so we don't bring all the games for little gaming time.

: We got the ATV's
: running and I think those went over really well, and unlike snowmobiles
: they are not as easily stuck for hours (HBOMBers know). We grilled
: hamburgers and hotdogs. Later that night we made the trip up to Newport
: Ky, to see Star Trek in 3D IMAX. That was awesome. Paddy, Munky and I
: watched a few episodes of Arrested Development S:4. So happy that the
: Bluths are back.

: Sunday was when the real "LAN" portion started. That was when the
: most Halo was played. That was a whole lot of fun as expected but the real
: gem that day was my little sister. Bear in mind she has never played a
: game of Halo multiplayer before (She's not a gamer.) I convinced her to
: pick up a controller and start playing with us. When the trash talk
: started, it wasn't from me, or Rev, or Paddy...but from little Reagan
: Newman.

: "Who is Revenant? Doug? YOU SUCK!"
: -Reagan Newman
: age 11

: That blew my mind. Any doubt I ever had about her actually being related to
: me (Do to her dislike of video games) was completely erased when she began
: calculating her K/D. I was so proud.

: We had a big bonfire that night. Munky's girlfriend made maybe the best
: hamburger I have ever had. She put pineapple on it and damn did that make
: it shine.

: As the evening wore on we decided to do something that will forever go down
: in the "Shame" section of HBO...We played cards against
: humanity.

: For those not in the know, it is basically grown up version of Apples to
: Apples.

: Friendships were strained, morality questioned, and by the end of the night
: it was determined the vast majority of us are indeed going to hell. It's
: that kind of card game.

: I can sum up our Cards against humanity experience with two words: Mecha
: Hitler.

More on the Revenge of CAH soon. I think Unreal is trying to get Google Hangouts of the online version going :)

: I don't think I have ever laughed so hard in my entire life. Amazing game.

: The night ended and with it the LAN party. The Georgia crew departed that
: night and the Ohio/PA group the next morning. I think everybody had a good
: time, I was happy to host and am already planning the next one because it
: was just so much damn fun!
