tofu likes long relaxing walks on the beach and running through dark laneways at night being chased by hordes of flesh eating zombies.

Well, bigpond gamearena sent me a rather confused email…

As a valued customer of ours, we wanted to take this opportunity to let you know we’ve reviewed our Games business in recent months and, as a result, GameArena’s Game and Voice Server Rentals will close on 30 June 2013.

Thanks for being a loyal GameArena customer.

The GameArena Team

I can’t be all that valued if they no longer want my business!

Long story short, TS has moved, again. New teamspeak server details are available in the members section.

Yell out if you get stuck.

PS Please pass this on to any regular co-inhabitants, like our friends the Bundy Bears.

Got wood?

December 21 came and went rather uneventfully. If nothing else, we missed a great opportunity for an end-of-the-world LAN…

…Or did we?

Some believe Friday-before-last was a premature premonition. I personally believe the worst is yet to come. Heck, there’s all manner of ways in which we could all synchronously kick the bucket (super-viral outbreak, alien invasion, cataclysmic meteor strike, just to name a few).

It’s almost 2013, we’re living on borrowed time!

Come join us early January, prepare for the pending calamity by attending a group training exercise in virtual post-apocalyptic wasteland simulators (like L4D).

Specific dates, times, locations to follow (probably via TeamSpeak).

PS LAN spray available from the members-only section.

PPS Wallpaper available also.

PPPS More information about LAN prep is available from the members-only section.

Games list is starting to shape up (based on comments and TS feedback)…

You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here

The TeamSpeak server is on the move!

For now, you will need to update your bookmarks to:

  • Address:
  • Password: The usual

The old server will be unavailable from Friday onwards, so you’ll nee to make the shift this week!!

PS Please pass this on to our good friends the Bundy Bears.

Running commentary

  1. tofu

    It’s official, Gamearena have closed our TeamSpeak server. I know this because they sent me this helpful please-come-back-again email:

    Hello Tofu,

    Your Game Server Rental subscription for TeamSpeak has ended.

    Thanks for your support of Australia’s premier Game Server Rental service, and we hope to see onboard again in the future!

    Kind regards,
    The Game Server Rentals team

    No biggie. I just kinda look like this now…


  3. tofu

    Looks promising

  4. tofu

    Ah, now you’re ready for SMB 😉

  5. tofu

    Will gift it to you!

  6. tofu

    Shmitee, we don’t have to wait till Tuesday, I’ll see you noon tomorrow!

    Rammy, legit installers are available at the LAN, but the more pre-loading you do, the more playing you get in on LAN day.

  7. tofu

    Awesomenauts looks LAN-friendly (and has 6-player action), might be worth a look?

  8. tofu

    Chivalry looks good. That could definitely be a goer.

  9. tofu

    Votes for LAN games?

    Some ideas…

    • Hawken
    • LFD2
    • BF3
    • Flat Out Ultimate Carnage
    • TF2 (MvM or Arena)
    • CnC3 Kane’s Wrath

    Excitable bunch 😉
