In late July 2019, Grapevine Texas will transform from a rather toasty suburb that’s practically hugging the tarmac of DFW into the epicenter of PC gaming for a long weekend. The annual event, QuakeCon, hosts one of the largest BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) LAN events in the world, attracting thousands of gamers, esports fanatics, and exhibitors to the show. In addition, there are number of game launches and announcements from the host developers Bethesda & id games, chances for attendees to get hands-on with the latest updates and prereleases, attend informative and entertaining panels, see amazing cosplay, and watch a thrilling live Quake esports championship that is a can’t miss experience every year. This year is particularly special because one of the paragons of PC gaming is celebrating its 25th anniversary. We are of course talking about DOOM. And nowhere else will you be able to get your hands on the highly-anticipated DOOM Eternal.
If you’re reading this, then chances are good that you’re also a fan of the vibrant PC modding scene, and there are few other events in the world quite like QuakeCon for attracting the best and brightest modders around. In addition to a good portion of the Modders-Inc staff, many well-known modders will be in attendance showing off their latest works of technical and artistic mastery. And without fail, we are sure to meet new modders who will blow us away with their awesome rigs. The Modders-Inc booth, which will be located in the spacious convention area of the Gaylord Texan Resort, will be the place to be for prize giveaways, details and signups for the US Case Modding Championship, hardware chitchat, and maybe even a surprise or two. We will also be hosting our own panels, so be sure to stop by and say hi!
