Killing fields.

Ahhh. Back from a net session at laerad and gwinniegirl's, and it was good. My computer seems to have survived being taken to Wishaw and then brought back on the train, but it's definitely significantly heavier than my old one was. My arms hurt from lugging the suitcase up the stairs.

I have squillions of games to play more of. We played Alien V Predator 2, which was good in some modes and...dangerous in others. I liked Survivor mode, where I could wander around the map for ten minutes not seeing anyone and call it a tactic. We played Dawn of War, of course, which I should have practised - I didn't get overrun quite so easily in the past. But they've modded it for the latest expansion, anyway - my usual tactics were hampered badly by the limit on turrets and the limit on tanks for chaos marines. Gah. We played, uh, Ghost Recon 2, and I got killed a lot. I did manage to kill people quite effectively in Unreal Tournament, though - I love my flak cannon. I installed Company of Heroes, but I haven't had a go at it yet. Same engine as Dawn of War, so it shouldn't take too long to get the hang of. I defaulted to playing Supreme Snowboarding as usual, so we played that for a while. It was hard to remember I can't do tricks like I can in Tricky and On Tour. There were between five and seven of us at any one point, so co-op modes were pretty good on the shooty games, once I figured out I shouldn't be shooting my own team. Oops. And I got laughed at for playing Scrabble at 5am. Ah well.

All our technology turned the clocks back an hour without telling us, apart from one or two people's phones, which was a little scary - our technology is completely in control. Oh, and my computer won't shut down any more - I have to hard reboot it every time. Seems to have something to do with a CD burning programme I uninstalled on Friday. Must figure that out.

In other news, Facebook reveals BBC as a liberal hotbed. According to the Daily Mail, of course. There are so many logical fallacies in this article it's unbelievable. I shouldn't let the Mail wind me up as easily as I do, but some people actually believe the stuff it prints.

I think pizza for dinner. Yes. While watching Top Gear. That seems a suitable end to a blokey weekend.

Hah - DoW and AVP2 were our games of choice at the last LAN party I was at - we spent ages with 4 marines clustering in corners, blowing up any shadows or struts that looked at us funny, and then the Alien would appear from nowhere, kill two of us, and have it away on his spiny toes before we could react.

Brrrrr.

Some of us hadn't played it much before, so there was a bit of that, but there was also a bit of "Become alien first, flap a bit, fall off a wall upside down, head for the marines, be cut down by four Smartguns." We had to outlaw the Smartguns in the end.

That's my problem exactly.
