Quakecon 2011: Day 3 Coverage
Final thoughts, conclusion on Day 3 events
As this year's Quakecon was coming to a close Saturday, the PCPer staff took some time out to visit some with of the gamers attending this year's event. The reason Quakecon is so successful every year is because of their dedicated volunteers who manage the BYOC and the loyal gamers who attend the event annually. We also love it when gamers come to Quakecon in their favorite character's attire, like our Chun Li look-a-like above.
We also like Quakecon for all the "eye candy" that attracts gamers to all the vendor booths in the exhibition hall. Cooler Master had Lisa Kaye on hand to help people enter their daily drawings and learn more about Cooler Master's line of power supplies, peripherals, PC cases, and CPU coolers.
This dude dressed up as Dave Lizewski from Kick Ass was also a fan favorite from this year's Quakecon.
Some event participants got a little crazier like this girl gamer who had a thing for Half Life head crabs.
The Air Force Reserve also didn't disappoint as these two booth babes handed out dog tags and sunglasses and gave people information about serving in the military as an Air Force Reserve member.
The game that definitely turned a lot of heads in the exhibition hall this year was the XBox 360 and PC version of Rage. People lined up to play the new title from id Software that comes out on Sept. 13 of this year.
Professional video gamer Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel interacted with gamers daily during the four-day event signing autographs and posing for photos. He has been a constant presence at Quakecon for several years and everyone was excited to see his new line of motherboards and other hardware.
The crowd surfing and giant beach balls were a hit at the daily Rage quick draw events in the exhibition hall this year too.
Most of the PC Perspective staff were on hand at this year's Quakecon to judge the annual case mod contest and throw one of the biggest PCPer hardware workshops we've had since we started hosting the event a few years ago. We will continue to support Quakecon and the gaming community as a whole with comprehensive hardware reviews and current technology news. Thanks to eveyone for their continued support of our annual hardware workshop and case mod contest.
