QuakeCon 2013 whens and wheres

Posted by: Nathaniel at 2/26/2013 1:01 PM
It's that time of year again; the time of year when you start to stress out about how you'll get to this year's QuakeCon 2013 being held from August 1st through August 4th (once again) in Dallas, Texas at the Hilton Anatole Hotel (again).

Also getting the "again" treatment: QuakeCon 2013 will host the continent's largest BYOC* LAN party.  I'm not a religious man, but I'll be praying for whoever has to clean up that mess.

For more information, visit www.quakecon.org.

You can also go here to make reservations at the Hotel, or, for the linkophobic, you can go old school and actually call the Hotel to make a reservation at 1-800-Hiltons or 1-800-445-8667.

*bring your own computer - But if you didn't know that, you're probably not going to QuakeCon2013.
