Louis Wu of HBO, who is hosting a LANfest this weekend at which there are a number of Halo luminaries, as well as a film crew from Film Oasis, the team that made the Xbox documentary for the Discovery channel and is working on a Halo 2 documentary right now, has put up one group photo so far; there's far too much playing going on for much else, the first round of which started between 12 midnight and 3 AM.

Louis Wu of HBO warns that because of the number of attending Halo luminaries, the next HBO Junkies lanfest, to be held on January 31, is going to have slightly more restricted attendance than previous ones. In any case, you need to sign up or you've no hope of attending.

Blackstar at Blackstar Productions has received word that he's gotten approval to host another Halo LANfest at the Collins Center in Andover, MA-- the location of last summer's Are You Big Enough LANfest that featured a forty-foot projector screen (as well as several smaller projection areas).This next LANfest will be held next summer. I attended the last one, and can vouch that it was a lot of fun, I'm sure this one will be, too.

[image:4041 left hspace=5 vspace=5 border=0]KP and Exogenesis attended the Summer Slaying and Lanwerx events, respectively, hosted by HBO's own Louis Wu and Penny Arcade, and they both posted a bit of an update in the HBO forum; here are the highlights from KP:

The usual suspects were there: The Wu, Miguel, Blackstar, nof, Gholsbane, team OvK, Have Blue, Konrad, Neo, Lophan, Fuhrman, Geoff, the Historian, Ben (Louis' son), a bunch of cool other people (I'm having trouble remembering, sorry), and some kids who showed up at 10:30pm as I was leaving who I didn't get to play with (apparently they were lost all day, I would've turned back for home after an hour, but that's just me).

... and from Exogenesis:[image:4044 left hspace=5 vspace=5 border=0]

Bungie was there, of course, showing off Halo 2 on a projector screen with a fairly good sound system. The quality is at least 100 times better than the videos released on the internet. Plus the first time, I was very close to the front. Prime viewing space. SketchFactor just cannot hit that jumping Ghost, though.

Although it seems this was a LANFest, and not a tournament per se, it sounds like Geoff walked away with top honors at SS, while Exogenesis nabbed himself a nifty souvenir by getting Gabe and Tycho from PA to sign a cardboard tube he found.
