    I was trying to get into the apts, but I got screwed by roommates and another guy that was in my Unit. Apparently, this other guy tried to hook up his gf, a freshman, with an apt, but never looked at the price. It's a huge story that really, really sucked. Anyways, we (well, at least I and another roomie) will be in the apt's next year. If my other two roommates don't want to go, then screw 'em. That's why God built us two-bedroom apts.

    We've got a LAN at the house, tho - I assure you there's no shortage of CS, UT, and various other games going on (NHL 2001 was quite popular, as well as Mario Golf on the nintendo)

    I got lucky... myself and 9 guys jumped on the apt thing and got 2 apts side by side on the 3rd floor... which is freakin sweet. (btw, find yourself 4 willing guys (or girls.. haha) .. the 2 bedroom ones are small ... not conducive to parties.)

    yeah... my fellas have the PS2s and the Dreamcasts and the PS1s... weekends are one giant video game. (Except when the ME in the group gets bored).

    I doubt I could find 4 girls there that I would be willing to live with, much less them wanting to live with me. I doubt the gf would like that setup too much, either

    Yeah, on the rare weekend when my roommates and I aren't smashed, video games are pretty much the order of business. We got the nintendo, a dreamcast, and an original nintendo, when it makes it way up to school. (side note: Mario golf makes a GREAT drinking game... I played against someone earlier this summer. I won smth like 16/18 holes.)

    We should do like a huge tournament or something on a game that everyone has. What games do you guys own? I own SC and AOE and some other lame crap. I Kick ass at SC. I can't wait till Warcraft III comes out... It would be cool if we all got online and started to beat the crap out of eachother. I would win the tourney though...

    Sorry - not a huge fan of RTS's...

    A tournament is a cool idea, tho. I'd even organize it!
    (warning: shameless advertising ahead)
    E-mail me what games you would want... I'll post what wins at my website and get some brackets together.

    ober: SC's prolly starcraft

    Hey Ober SC = StarCraft, I made my avatar on this flamig text site. It was posted by dean the first time if you search for avatars and goto the one started by Witch_king he should have the link posted on the origonal message.

    Im down with pretty much any game, as soon as we decide what game were going with, let me know. You should create a poll Govt and find out what game we should play.

    a dreamcast
    Good choice... We all know the Dreamcast is the
    second greatest console ever manufactured. I got
    mine at launch, and will be buying another one
    soon (They're $79.99. Great deal)...Phantasy
    Star Online
    and Skies of Arcadia are
    probably two of my all-time favorite games...

    I just bought Jet Grind Radio for $9.99 new, from
    amazon. That's one good thing about the demise
    of the DC--the prices are super-cheap.

    Anyway... Okay. Counterstrike it is...

    OK, CS sounds good, static.

    However, I noticed you like Tribes... I'll let you choose between the two... (Tribes might actually work better for my slowass dialup)

    I hate the thought of even trying to work with a dialup online game... I'd rather wait til I get back to the T1s at school. but once I get there... BRING IT ON *****ES...

    Ooh, goodie. I choose Tribes... I've never
    played Counterstrike anyway. I was going to buy
    it and practice. But I_am_the_best at Tribes.

    LOL I guess you can't... They filtered the main part of my vocabulary.

    I think the site dean posted was different, but it does the same thing.

    Ill have to go out and buy the game we decide to play, but Im still gonna win
