Main Stage - Quakecon 2016

Saturday, August 6th, 10:00am CT

Our thanks go out to the organizers of Quakecon for allowing us and our partners to put together a show that we are proud of every year.  We love giving back to the community of enthusiasts and gamers that drive us to do what we do!  Get ready for 2 hours of prizes, games and raffles and the chances are pretty good that you'll take something out with you - really, they are pretty good!

Our primary partners at the event are those that threw in for our ability to host the workshop at Quakecon and for the hundreds of shirts we have ready to toss out!  Our thanks to NVIDIALogitech and ASUS!!

PC Perspective LIVE Podcast and Meetup

We are planning on hosting any fans that want to watch us record our weekly PC Perspective Podcast (http://pcper.com/podcast) on Wednesday or Thursday evening in our meeting room at the Hilton Anatole.  I don't yet know exactly WHEN or WHERE the location will be, but I will update this page accordingly on Wednesday August 3rd when we get the data.  You might also consider following me on Twitter for updates on that status as well.

After the recording, we'll hop over the hotel bar for a couple drinks and hang out.  We have room for at leaast 50-60 people to join us in the room but we'll still be recording if just ONE of you shows up.  :)

Let it be Thursday! I could never start on Wednesday because I don't see how I could make it all the way to Sunday!

How about scraping up some M.2 drives? I never see raffles for those.

I believe the prizes are for those who's attending the event.

I do like the prize list. So much I'd be very happy with. :)

Wow, thats a huge haul! You guys are going to make it epic! Lucky are the people that are able to attend the event.

Lucky? maybe. I attended last year and it is really annoying to try and go. If you are not staying at that hotel or in walking distance, then parking utterly sucks. I really only had time to go the day of the workshop and had to park way out of the way at a bank and luckily I didn't get a ticket.
It's an event you get dropped off at and picked up from, not something you drive and park at to attend unless you are staying at that hotel or one close by.
