PC Gamer Showdown: This Weekend

Finally, a chance to heckle Kieron.

PC Gamer launches the PCG Showdown this very night, with the doors opening to the public from 8am Saturday morning. What is it, you cry? It’s a combination of exciting game show, and uber-LAN party. The LAN is all sold out, but tickets are still available for everything else, and can be bought on the door. And three of RPS will be there.

So why come? Well, first of all there’s a whole bunch of fantastically exciting, unreleased games that you’ll be able to play. Seriously – these are top notch. There’s Far Cry 2, Battleforge, Dawn of War 2, Dead Space, Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway, Fifa 09, Multiwinia, Mirror’s Edge, and even Valve’s utterly incredible Left 4 Dead. That really is a remarkable selection of the most exciting things happening in big budget PC Game Land, and you can get your mitts on them long before release.
