    MillionManLan 15 Louisville KY, 7/28/16 - 7/31/16

    So close now, might be the largest group I've seen registered in a few years. I'll be in the Trackmania and Rocket League tournaments, hoping to see the Iron Man of Gaming tournament again as well. I'll be streaming the tournaments for sure and hopefully for most of the event on twitch.

    Beginner in a new house

    I moved into a new house 2 weeks ago which has speakers in several rooms on the main floor as well as outside on the deck. In the office room, there is an input terminal on the wall for basic speaker wire. One pos/neg set feeds the indoor speakers and the other feeds the deck; there are volume...

    MillionManLan 14 - Jul. 9 - 12

Quake 2/3 pick-up games, League of Legends, DayZ, ARMA, Dota, Starcraft, Diablo, GTA Online, Trackmania, Dirty Bomb, Rocket League, Minecraft, Killing Floor, TF2, CS:GO, Battlefield 4 (though I know I saw 1942 last year), World of Tanks, Street Fighter, Mortal...

    MillionManLan 14 - Jul. 9 - 12

    Great event this year. There was a local FPV quadcopter group that brought $20-30k worth of gear to let everyone learn and play around with and raffled off a $400 boxed unit. The ironman of gaming tournament was great and better than last year too. I also have to say that the Jackbox games...

    Remember in 2015 we will turn it around... #nopreorders

    That was my point in mentioning Rage, the launch had some serious issues on PC. I had preordered the game and couldn't play it as with many other PC gamers, though finally ended up finishing and enjoying the game. Diablo 3 and Battlefield 4 also turned into great games IMO, but preordering...

    Remember in 2015 we will turn it around... #nopreorders

    Really? Because that's the exact reason why I did change mine. I've realized that the games and studios I've come to love and support aren't bulletproof. If a launch is botched but the problems are resolved to satisfaction, I will give them my continued support then. I'm very much looking...

    I converted to WASD

    I really got into UT2k4 and saw that all the "best" players had each weapon bound to individual keys and many of them used ESDF to make that easier. Since then, every new game for me requires a rebind session to use ESDF but I have no regrets. It's the same place my hand rests when I'm typing...

    Remember in 2015 we will turn it around... #nopreorders

    Rocksteady had yet to make a bad Arkham game for the PC IMO. iD had a good PC track record and then came Rage. DICE had really polished up BF3 to a great game and then released BF4. What could go wrong with a game like Diablo? As someone who has completely sworn off pre-orders, the title of...

    The Official [H]ard|Gaming Minecraft Server

    I'm sure this is a long shot, but do any of the early hardcraft map files still exist? Like from 2011 when it first started? I remember there being a large rocket silo and I had built an oversized skeleton excavation site. Someone had also built a 128x128 pyramid in a desert.

    Clash of Clans

    I might be looking for a new group to join. I picked a random one when I started last year and they've been fine but the past month has seen an increase in hoppers, new members on TH4/5, and 10 - 14 yr olds... I'm a few weeks into TH8 and would enjoy some more mature company; FlashIV is my...

    New Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Trailer

    I may have finally gotten to the point where I'm finished pre-ordering games...and everytime I do, it reinforces that I'm making the right choice. I felt burned after pre-ordering Diablo 3 and Battlefield 4. I had the urge, but ultimately passed, on Arkham Origins and Watch Dogs; two games...

    MillionManLan 13 - Jul. 31 to Aug. 3

    It's almost time. This year's attendance matched last year's number over the weekend and will probably see a couple more last-minute sign ups. No other [H] members though?

    For FPS games do you play normal or inverted?

    I used to play normal with a mouse and inverted if I had to use thumbsticks. I got tired of constantly having to go into settings on consoles and change settings so I spent the entire game of Fallout: New Vegas on an xbox controller playing normal and finally got used to it. It's weird...

    Certainly valid points! I always hate to see the, "there aren't as many people as there used to be" excuse that turns into a downward spiral.

    Just 13 seats left in the main hall (Alpha). Once that's filled they'll open up Bravo for teams/clans that want to make sure they sit together. Sapphire is onboard as an official sponsor, I'd be suprised if Plantronics and TrendNet weren't back for another year.

    The Best Free PC Games EVER

    Custom cables

    Does anyone have experience with ordering custom cables? We have some old equipment in the lab that would require something to the tune of a round 9-pin to a flat 25-pin connection. My boss has the specifics but I mentioned I would see if I could dig up anything. Ordering the specific cable...

    What's closest to the fUNC 'Surface 1030' these days?

    I've used the 1030 for almost 10 years now and recently won a Mionix Propus 380 at a LAN party and really like it. It has a very similar surface to the "rough" side of the 1030 and is a bit larger. or, since you're in the...

    How do you guys finish games?

    Depends, I was getting frustrated trying to get all the way through Bioshock Infinite on Hard. I really wanted to finish it and get the story before some other titles came out, so I set it to Easy and enjoyed the rest of the game. The other way is a good friend and I will get a game at the...

    Battlefield 4 Beta Discussion

    I had the same feeling when I first played, couldn't quite put my finger on it. It was definitely something with the weapons, like they reduced the bullet drop just enough to make it noticable IMO. I think it's still a far cry from Call of Duty, but my first impression was that DICE eased up...

    Battlefield 4 Beta Discussion

    I've been enjoying the beta for the most part but one thing stood out last night. This map is overrun with snipers on rooftops that are near impossible to hit from the ground, especially if you're looking into the sun in some cases. I had a transport chopper pilot that was fed up with the...

    The admins just opened up the Bravo seating section for team seating requests; so a good portion of general seating in Alpha has opened up for anyone who just wants to sit with a friend or two.
