The PC Gamer Showdown

There’s no adequate way to follow up that previous story, so I’m just going to post something from our chums – and occasional employers – over at PC Gamer UK: THE PC GAMER SHOWDOWN. It’s a LAN event to be held in the UK, sponsored by our PC Gamer chums, and LG for some reason.

500 hardcore gamers will battle over a high-speed network at the awesome Stoneleigh Park venue on 27th and 28th of September in a bid to get their hands on thousands of pounds worth of cash prizes.

Gosh. If you’re interested in spanking Ross, Tim and the others at Team Fortress 2 (which they’re all practicing furiously on at the moment in a desperate attempt to avoid utter destruction) then you can sign up here.

    I want more limbo of the lost!

  3. Seniath says:

    Why would anyone possibly need to watch out for Tom Francis when he burns so well?

  4. JoeFreakinRussell says:

    Damn my wireless aerial snapping habits! I’m without TF2 for an indeterminable amount of time now…

  5. Matu says:

    O the joys of living in Britain :(

  6. Mr Peckerston says:

    wotr2 will probably be there :)

  7. Chris Evans says:

    LG eh…well that sounds fun! :dork:

    Want to see what games are going to be shown off!

  8. AbyssUK says:

    Everybody MUST bring photo ID…. erm why ???

  9. Jim Rossignol says:

    Proof of age, presumably.

  10. Nick says:

    So you can buy them drinks.

  11. Kieron Gillen says:

    Jim and I were talking about doing an RPS-mini-con-LAN-thing at some point in the future. Would that be interesting to anyone?


  12. LinK says:

    Kieron –

    Yer I think thats a good idea, could be excellent fun!

  13. Yargh says:

    Location would probably be highly influential on interest levels… That said, if it’s in range, some nice network kit might be available to me if that helps.

  14. Chris Evans says:

    I fully support any RPS mini-con event!

  15. Gap Gen says:

    I think the main impediment to going to the PCG event was having to take your own computer, for me at least.
