"Anyone who reads DieHard GameFan is already aware of David Perry and our admiration for him. It's not that he's the only brilliant programmer out there — with your best interest in mind, there are few... How he has managed to surround himself with people that are all equally suited is a mystery, but he has. Shiny Entertainment is about to blow the roof off of the Action / Platform category.

Every year, a little town in Texas becomes home to thousands of gamers for four brilliant days of gaming. In these four days, thousands of gamers will flock to the hometown of id Software, most with their own computers in tow, for the country's biggest LAN party: QuakeCon.
It's been a long, strange trip, and it's good to be home. Texas is flat and hot, and way more pre-fab than any other place I've been to, including Florida, which is saying a lot. By now you've probably heard about Denny's being the only restaurant within easy walking distance from the event, to which I can only add: .
