**OFFICIAL** FanimeCon 2013 PC Gaming Thread!
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:09:55 PM »

Hello folks,

I am proud to announce PC Gaming is back for Fanime 2013! I would also like to say that Digital Storm will be coming back, and bringing their new Vanquish system for attendees to play on.

FAQ

Can I bring my own laptop/PC and play?
As of now, we are not going to be having any BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) setups. I still need to get clarification if attendees are allowed to bring their own laptops inside the Gaming Hall.

I want to show off Stepmania/MUGEN/etc!
The same rules that apply for E-Gaming also applies for PC Gaming as well. We will not permit anyone to play any emulators, music game simulators, and similar programs as there are a ton of legal and liability issues. If you want to use those programs, do so elsewhere.

Will there be an internet connection?
We were unable to obtain a dedicated Internet connection for Exhibit Hall 3. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Will there be tournaments?
See below.

I have a question about the Digital Storm systems!
Representatives from Digital Storm will be at Fanime to answer any questions you have. They will have Digital Storm T-shirts on to differentiate them from our staff.

  • *12PM: League of Legends- First Bracket (5v5)

I will consider it, I cannot guarantee there will be one this year.

I do not have the answer for that, but if you shoot an e-mail to games @ fanime *DOT* com, you can get an answer there.

Hey Richie,

If laptops are allowed in Gaming Hall, are mods of games allowed (SF4 Remix).

The mod itself just changes in-game code to change characters behavior and does not unlock any content that needs to be bought.

Hopefully next year the PC Gaming can be expanded upon. Especially with the convention center being more roomy AND should have some sort of internet line by then. I like using laptops but I heavily doubt that they will allowed for use in tournaments or taking up more plugs.
