The pizza form is up! gadget:3000

My desktop is borked so no request board this LAN. Sorry! I hope to get it integrated into the site soon though.

If you aren’t sure how to install any of the games on the timetable then look at the Install Guide for help. It’s a good idea to have everything you want to play installed before the LAN. If you need help then ask us on IRC or at the LAN.

12:00 Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (£14.99)

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO PLAY DIFFERENT GAMES THEN THE REQUEST BOARD IS AVAILABLE AT gadget:3000 ON THE DAY!

THE PIZZA FORM IS NOW UP! PLEASE PAY GADGET3000 OR NEOPHRITE BY 2PM! FORM IS AVAILABLE AT gadget:3001!

The “Show people your games” slot is a new idea. Anyone can show off games to others that they want to get other people to start playing together. If you’ve been wanting to try a specific game for while then go and find someone who owns it. It’s a chance for you to get to play games you don’t own on other people’s computers! Don’t be afraid to shout out to find games. Alternatively use this hour to play a new game in your steam library that you haven’t played before ;)

If you aren’t sure how to install any of the games on the timetable then look at the Install Guide for help. It’s a good idea to have everything you want to play installed before the LAN. If you need help then ask us on IRC or at the LAN.

Welcome Freshers!

September 19, 2013 | Posted in Uncategorized, Tagged

A new academic year begins, and from the ashes of an all too hot summer rises the magnificent phoenix that is COGS, prepared to bathe yet another round of fresh recruits in the all consuming flames of video game related drama.

Putting analogies aside, we’d like to share with you the dates for the first two COGS events of the coming year.

The first (and most important) is CL1, scheduled for the 12th of October. Like previous years it will almost certainly be the biggest LAN event we host. A chance for the old to meet the new and the new to decide they’ve made a terrible mistake. The venue is Activity Room 11, on the second floor of the Students Union building on Queen’s Road.

The second (CL2) has been scheduled for the 30th of November and will use the same room. If CL1 didn’t put you off, we’d love to see you again at this event.

Both of these, and for that matter all CL events run from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM and we run a LAN-wide pizza order that usually arrives at about 6:00 PM. Nonparticipation in the pizza order is absolutely allowed so feel free to do your own thing if that floats your boat.

LeachLan 10, a non-COGS event hosted by our friends over at SouthWest LANs is also fast approaching, if you’re interested, head over to The SouthWest LANs event page and have a look.

If you’ve any questions concerning anything COGS related, you can ask your wonderful committee on IRC (if you’ve no idea what this is there’s a tutorial on the website under IRC Guide), send an email to the committee via the contact page, or come and shout at us during the freshers fair.

Additionally, anyone who bought items from the COGS summer sale can pay and pick them up at our booth at the freshers fair. We’re table 51 at the Millenium Square.

Finally, we’re looking for any suggestions that you have for COGS this year. Tell us here http://www.cogsbristol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1429
We’re also looking for suggestions of what games to play at console socials. Tell us here http://www.cogsbristol.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1428

We also now have mumble channels that are specific to each game so that you can see what people are playing currently, and so you can just hop into a game that lots of other people are playing. You can also create your own game channels if you are playing a game that isn’t listed. If you aren’t sure what mumble is ask us in IRC, or ask a committee member at the LAN :)

We are trying a new timetable layout this LAN by reducing the number of timetabled games. This will hopefully give you all the chance to play what you want, whilst still having the larger games that make LANs fun.
We are also encouraging you all to hop into IRC to arrange your own games in the free timetable slots. We will also be creating more mumble channels that are specific to each game so that you can see what people are playing currently and so you can just hop into a game that lots of other people are playing. If you aren’t sure what mumble is ask us in IRC, or ask a committee member at the LAN. :)
