Bawls To The Ceiling

Like I said, Bawls is the official energy drink/ziggurat of QuakeCon.

Food Truck Lot: A QuakeCon First

If you can weather the 110-plus-degree heat, step outside for some food truck goodness! A first at this year's QuakeCon.

    52" HDTV as a monitor? and still sit 2' from it? why? no wonder minecraft isn't being played fullscreen!
    a HDTV is 1920x1080 (at best, assuming it's fullHD and has no overscan), LESS resolution than my 24" 1920x1200 LCD (which is small enough to be able to see the entire screen at 2' away, and likely has better contrast ratio & response times too).
    some people have more money to spend on tech than knowledge of tech, there is one such person.

    Didnt go this year, kinda sad. But Quake con just isnt what it used to be with out that AMD girl there. "FIRST PERSON BRINGS ME A PAIR OF UNDER WEAR WINS A 5990" (back when it first came out).


    Antec is a great booth though. My first Quake con I changed shirts and ended up with like 16 tickets from that booth, didnt win crap lmfao.

    The response time on many HDTV's is 8ms or less. If you're old or have eye strain issues, it's the perfect solution. 3x47" HDTV's FTW. YMMV

    Many monitors have response times that are far lower than 8ms and many HDTVs have response times that are above 8ms.
