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.
