LANfest2K7 Promises to be a Smash Hit


It's time to ditch the homework, call in sick or whatever it takes to get your gaming skills in check. The latest and greatest Newegg LANfest 2007 is upon us, and you don't want to show up looking like a newbie in front of 4,000 of your closest gamer friends. This year's event will be held at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California. The event happens from October 5th through the 7th. Newegg is serving up a 400 person - 24 hour BYOC, bone-smashing tournaments, creative new contests and the latest exhibitions from your favorite hardware and gaming companies. Unlike LAN events of yesteryear, LANfest2K7 is hosting tournaments on the latest game consoles and allowing them into the BYOC area. You can even rent your own high-def display if you prefer the Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 over PC gaming.

So your gaming skills are a little rusty? Have no worries my friend, there's much more that will interest you at LANfest 2007. Thousands will be given away in raffles and contest prizes. If your catlike reflexes extend beyond your gaming weapon-of-choice you may want to check out the PC Build Race sponsored by Crucial Technology. There's also a "Geek to Sweet Make Over" sponsored by OCZ if you still employ mom as your personal stylist. End up in this contest and you'll be made over by models and the audience will decide your fate. The most popular contest so far has been the "Ultimate Case Mod Contest" which is open to everyone in the BYOC and is always full of surprises. On Saturday, rock band Ones and Zeros will be playing a live show for your entertainment. There will also be some grub provided courtesy of Netgear and Razer. It just wouldn't be an official LAN event without an appearance from the legendary Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel. Fatal1ty will be at the Universal abit booth, #4008, Oct. 5 - 7 signing autographs and taking challenges from the attendees. Think you can beat Wendel? Here is your chance. See you there.
