QuakeCon Registration Opens To The Public Tonight

One of the perks of this job is being able to go to conventions as press, basically fooling the entire world into thinking you’re doing something important. The fact that QuakeCon 2012 will be going on in my backyard only sweetens the deal since I’ll be able to actually go home to my own bed every day.

Starting on August 2nd and lasting through the 5th, the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas will be hosting the world’s largest bring-your-own-computer LAN party. It will give you a chance to frag your friends while proving that all of the extra LED lights on your rig were totally necessary.

Registration starts later on tonight and, while the con is absolutely free to all attendee,s there are a few extra perks if you’re willing to drop a few bucks. You can register here once the countdown hits zero.
