If you're already planning out your travel for 2012, mark down that QuakeCon 2012 will take place on August 2-5 this year. It takes place in Dallas, Texas, at the Hiltone Anatole Hotel.
QuakeCon is always the world's largest LAN party, and a great place to see the coolest/strangest computers and the even stranger collection of files within them. If you're not a LAN kind of gamer, Bethesda will be there to give attendees the first chance to play upcoming titles. Other exhibitors also bring their games and wares, and even gaming hardware is shown off on the show floor. It's a good time, so you should probably clear your schedule.
There's a special room rate of $154 a night when you tell Hilton that you'll be there for QuakeCon. See you there?
