Quakecon 2012 shakes up Dallas August 2-5

Grab your LEDs, fans, and whatever else you need to get your gaming rig ready to show off -- you only have until August 2! That's when QuakeCon will once again take over the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, with North America's largest LAN party. This year, expect it to be North America's densest concentration of irritating Skyrim jokes as well.

Those of us not taking part will be able to look forward to keynotes and other presentations, along with news and media relating to whatever is happening at iD Software -- which means Doom 4, as far as we know.
