G-News Exclusive Special
We're currently very busy preparing everything for our grand LAN-Party. Officially starting tomorrow we'll play games like Quake 3, StarCraft Broodwar, Diablo 2 and many, many others for 3 full days.

Many other Games were played, but most of them couldn't be rated because of disconnects, CPU participators or unequal timing.

The fire was mostly taken out of the stove today, with most people leaving as time passed, going back to normal life.
Today's best games were Quake 2 (lots of fun), Age of Empires (stable, fair and interesting) and Duke 3D (this sucker crashes every 30 seconds). As a final word for this GameSession I'd like to thank all the guys who came and played, as well as the leeches who used other people's comps, and the peeps who lended them gratefully. Special thanks to Ganto and Mizu for introducing us to HalfLife a bit and for making a god addition to the old team. More thanks goes to the Pizza delivery services for supplying the food and also to Murdock for nagging about the stench in the rooms he was in (ignoring that it was him who produced it). The award for the best machine goes to my G3. It never had a problem that couldn't be solved in less than 15 seconds. Award for worst machine goes to my P200MMX I was trying to set up. I still couldn't get a mouse to work on it. The sour grape goes to Wemblie for cheating twice in Starcraft and the big apple goes to Psygenol for letting others use his PC and for buying a mouse while I was playing. GameSessions will be back, and we'll be reporting again.
