It was 120 degrees F-ing hot the last time I was in Mesquite, Texas in the summer. I was producing the field shoot for one of the first QuakeCons and scheduled an interview with John Carmack. And here I am thinking of going back… at the peak of summer. I’m sure I’ll forget about the heat because these events are always a blast. I’ve always been blown away on how gamers would travel hundreds of miles, bring their heavy PC gears and have the hugest LAN party.
Street Fighter tournaments always have frenetic action and the crowd is into every move. It’s hard not to get sucked into the action and emotions. So, If you’re going to be in Texas at the end of July and beginning of August 2012, swing by both of these tournaments and have fun. Don’t hesitate to say hello if you see a tall, good-looking guy with a mustache.
