CL2 Timetable (14-15)

November 22, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized, Tagged

Our second LAN will be taking place on Saturday 29th – and don’t worry, it’s going to be during the day this time! The LAN will start at 10 in the morning and end at 10 at night, and we will probably have a projector with a console or two set up again.

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.

Once again we will be taking pizza orders on the day, the form is available here and will go live during the morning – orders will need to be in by ~2-3 so that we can order in time for a 7 PM delivery.

CL1 Timetable (14-15)

Pizza orders are now closed – if you still need to pay please see Peregrine asap!

The first LAN of the term is finally sorted and is going to be an overnight one! We will start off in MR1 at 7 PM with consoles, board games and a few splitscreen games set up (we can only have a few PCs runing in that room due to power constraints), and then move into AR11 for the rest of the LAN at 11 PM until 10 AM the next day. As it’s overnight we’ll also have a pillow fort / chilling area for movies and such so bring pillows and/or duvets with you if you want. If you don’t want to stay the whole night and just come for the first part then that’s fine.

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 24, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized, Tagged

A new academic year begins, and from the ashes of another 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 welcome you all and share with you information about the first two COGS events of the coming year.

The first event is the first Console Social, which will be on the 2nd of October (Tonight!) starting at 8:00 PM in Bundy’s Bar. This is your chance to kickback, have a drink and play some games like Mario Kart and Smash Bros on a projector with the rest of the society. If you have trouble finding your way, go through the gate in the back of the Victoria Rooms carpark, follow the road straight in front of you and you’ll find Bundy’s on the right hand side.

The second (and most important) of the year is CL1, which will be scheduled for the 2nd or 3rd weekend of the term and may be an overnight lan – we’re still trying to sort the room out and will update when confirmed. 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 realise they immediately regret their decision. The venue will be the Students Union building on Queen’s Road.

Almost all of our LAN events run from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM, as do most of our other LAN events. You will need to bring your own computer or laptop, and if you require transportation we will arrange a joint taxi with other people near you. For food there will be a LAN-wide pizza order (orders close around 2:00 PM) that usually arrives at about 7:00 PM, however you don’t have to take part in this so feel free to do your own thing if that floats your boat.

If you’ve any questions concerning anything COGS related, you can find us on IRC (if you’ve no idea what this is there’s a tutorial on the website under IRC Guide), stalk us on mumble, send an email to us via the contact page, or post in the Facebook group.

Finally, we’re looking for any suggestions that you have for COGS this year. Send us an email or come talk to us about any ideas that you would like to see happen – this can be anything from changing the way events are run, new games you want to see at the console socials, the way we communicate with you etc. No matter how small or trivial it is we’d like to know.

Thank you for reading and hopefully we’ll see lots of you in the future!
