Game Overviews Needed for LAN Party Eh's Game Directory

Postby gnat on Tue Aug 05, 2008 6:34 pm

Hello all, as you know, LAN Party Eh maintains a LAN Party Game Directory. Many of the games in this list still need an overview/written description.

If you would like to write an overview for a game in this list, post it in this thread and we'll consider adding it for that game. If you would like to write an overview for a game that is not currently listed, feel free to do so, and we'll add the game to the list as well! :D

You will be fully credited for your writing, and it will be seen by anyone who visits the site! Creativity and humor is totally encouraged!


Here's a current list of which games have overviews and which ones do not:

The main reason to register at the moment is to support Dan while he finishes the game. I have a few friends who have registered for that very reason.

It's an action and strategy game rolled into one. The physics system makes the gameplay very unique. The single player is good, but it really shines when one has a few friends playing as well. :D

wait if it's for PC how does the multi-player work? also how big is the file cause i'm on a small download cap and most of it's used. to many people using it for only 10-12GBs or whatever it is.

The multiplayer is hotseat-based, meaning multiple people on the same computer. Because of this, the game is best experienced with a tv/projector and gamepads/controllers. The download is quite small at 20 megs.

Anyway, if you want to talk about Cortex Command further, we should create a new thread as I would like to keep this one on topic as it's site related.

Yo Derek!

Yeah you'd certainly be the right person to write a TF2 overview ;) b4wls

As for the submission form itself (i'm assuming you're referring to the game submission form), are there any specific changes to it that you would like to see?
