Default ASUS Republic of Gamers Convention: Part 1

There's an exciting event happening in Dallas that comes in the form of a LAN party. Not any usual LAN though, as it's sponsored by some of the biggest companies in the business, including the event leader, ASUS. While the Dallas heat sure isn't fun to deal with, the event more than makes up for it so far.


You can read Greg's first portion about the event right here, and discuss it here!

Guys, Greg is a standup guy and a hella fun dude! On the level and straight talking, just the way I like!
