  1. Back at see.  Home port in New Jersey.  Sailing to Bermuda, Bahamas, Orlando, SE Caribbean, and (in a couple months) Maine and Nova Scotia.  

  2. Is there some mod that made all those cruisers expose broadsides? That never seems to happen when I play.
  3. And I just bought a new laptop 2 days ago...
  4. I can't properly express how much I hate 1. B. Not just in ships. Shows up in a few other games. Some even disable it entirely. Alt+F4 is my way of saying "Fuck Off, I'm done right now." Or at the very least, "Your game leaving process takes too long. I don't have patience for that. Exit right now."
  5. Back home for a bit.  Any of these games worth playing?

  7. Another thought occurred to me when thinking about trial versions... BF2. Might just be my nostalgia overhyping it.
  8. I was able to grab the demo. Runs, but doesn't seem like something simple enough for my audience. - I need console peasant levels of complexity. @sahtila - Definitely can't do that. Requires way too much set up, and would require massive downloads. Also, all of the ship's internet is satellite based, so we'd be running at 600+ms. That's why I need it to be LAN.
  9. I know. Most of what I've found is from the glory days of simulations, and look like crap today. If they run on modern machines at all. Might give that demo @EndlessAgony mentioned a shot if I can find a non-steam version. It would be a massive pain to get the 4 machines on steam, since steam is blocked by corpnet.
  10. We're doing another crew appreciation party, and I've been given the (enviable) task of making another gaming station. Copy/paste from last time: So, I need to find something that fits this criteria: LAN multiplayer - I prefer PVP, but a CO-OP mode could be nice as well. Accessible. Not something that requires memorization of a moves list. Entertaining to watchers as well as players: People walking by should be able to have an idea what is going on. Quick games: Probably 5-15 minutes. Able to run on our hardware. We'll likely be using stock Dell Optiplex 7010s: I5, Integrated graphics (Intel 2500 or so) 32bit Win7, 4gb RAM. Free or nearly free. Minimal setup. I don't need something where everyone sets up usernames, has to bind an email address, etc. I want them to enter a name (optional), sit and go. Some notes: I have essentially no access to torrents, etc. If I can't get it legitimately for free, it's probably a no-go. Unless you have a link, and that link isn't blocked by corpnet. My boss, an ex Navy guy, really wants something nautical themed. He's thinking something like Battleship (the board game.) I'm thinking something like WoWS. Of course, WoWS won't work because of LAN, and the need to grind ships, etc. Is there anything even close to that that fits my criteria? If not, I'll likely go back to a shooter. Might opt for the Halo trial this time around.
  11. Might try that next time, assuming it's free. Since everyone living here has little to no access to games, anything I put up will seem good. We did a trial run of Alien Arena in the office last night. Good times, although it was clear I was the only person with any WASD shooter experience.
  12. Clearly. Took a job a few months ago with Royal Caribbean. Work/live/eat/etc. on a cruise ship. Spent the summer in the Mediterranean. Currently sailing out of San Juan, hitting the typical southeastern Caribbean ports of call. Can't even access that site. Keeping match time short is key. I'm setting up 4 stations, and we have a crew of ~860. I don't want match times of more than ~5 minutes. Pretty sure I've settled on Alien Arena at this point. Might try one of the others if we do it again.
  13. "Find some controllers." Bear in mind, I live on a ship. "Find some (blank)" is usually not an option.
  14. So, in the ultimate expression of goofing off at work, I have officially been tasked with finding and setting up a good old LAN party. Part of the ship's holiday expo. Apparently, my manager feels we can best demonstrate what the IT department does by setting up a game. Or, maybe he wants us to do something less boring than our usual "Free virus scans!" booth...

Alien Arena was the first thing that came to mind, but I don't know it all that well. Will test a bit later.
