What are some of the pleasant activities you picture when you think of going to a gaming convention? Getting a first glimpse at a game that few have seen before? Collecting enough swag to double your luggage size? Donating blood?
The last one may be atypical, but if you feel like doing some good in the name of videogames, QuakeCon's one place you can do it. Bethesda's announced this morning that it's partnering with The American Red Cross to hold "The Good Within Blood Drive" -- an allusion to the upcoming The Evil Within.
Anyone interested that's at least 17 years of age can sign up in the convention's Topaz room on July 18 or 19 between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. While donors might walk away with slightly less of them intact, they'll receive an official The Evil Within chill pack for their generous gesture. That, and a warm, fuzzy feeling in their heart.
