ASLAN #18: In Review

Hours of LAN game entertainment, hot soup and a sausage sizzle was the name of the game (several, actually) at ASLAN 18.

ASLAN 18 was held at the Hillcrest Community Centre on the 14th of May, 2011.

Our hard-working Admins and volunteers set up for the event. The Admins made sure that everything ran smoothly and without a hitch.

After several hours of rigging up the venue for the big day, it was time for the fun to begin...

The first salvo of gaming opened up at 1500 hours (3pm).

Paul "Rids" provided his mellifluous voice to MC the event once again.

"shadey" presided over the kitchen, where one could find such gastronomic delights such as “Shadey's Mum's Pumpkin Soup” with a side of bread.

Sausages sizzled outside at the hall entrance allowing the smell to draw the lanners attention.

Teams were organised for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare two-versus-two team matches.

An Xbox 360 displayed games on a projector screen; multiplayer games such as Halo and Dead or Alive 4 were ready for play.

Players were sporadically peppered with NERF gun pellets throughout the day.

Competitions of Blur, TrackMania, and Unreal Tournament followed.

This was followed by an hour-long Medal of Honor: Allied Assault D-Day landing, as the gamers, playing as the Americans, attempted to storm the Admins as the Germans.

The night ended as gamers descended into a glorious free-for-all slaughter in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and knifings and suicide grenade detonations ensued.

At the end of the night, it was time to give out the prizes. See the gallery of honour below for the winners. Congratulations!

(Including the famous door prize...)
