That’s right Gaming Friday is back! Not only do we have quite a few games to tell you guys about we also will be attending quite a few gaming events this year! Today we are attending our first, FITES LANFest 2012! This 200 person LAN party is held in Mechanicsburg, PA. It is currently the largest LAN party in Pennsylvania and the 3rd largest in the North East. Read on to see what this LAN party is all about and keep checking back throughout the weekend for updates!
One of the most frustrating things about going to a B.Y.O.C. (Bring your own computer) LAN event is having to carry your system from the car to the setup area. This can be particularly exhausting if the setup area is a great distance away from the entrance to the building, a prime example, PAX Prime 2010 in Seattle, with the BYOC up on the 6th level of the convention. Trying to carry my system on my shoulder and my monitor in the other hand was a most exhausting experience, not to mention uncomfortable as it was a very warm day and left me sweating for a good 20 minutes after reaching the line. Today I take a look at the solution to my problems, the Antec Lanboard. While wandering around PAX, I stopped by the Antec booth and saw this item sitting on display, instantly knowing I had to try it out. As soon as I got home and set up my computer, I was on Antec’s website ordering this to my doorstep.
Evolution Gaming aka EVO-G is probably not widely known among the LAN party scene, but with the LB1 LAN Bag I think they could become more widely known. The EVO-G LB1 LAN Bag comes equipped with all the necessary compartments needed to carry your PC case and extra cables and components to bring along with you to a LAN party. The LB1 has got other carrying cases beat with the sheer protection, quality material and storage space for the avid LAN party goer. It even comes with its own carrying case!
