writeup of the event here!

I was lucky enough to cast for the Get Into Games Expo, in its Call of Duty 4 Section. Listen in to the show here how I talk about how it was, and the results of the matches. It was a lot of fun, and can't wait to be there in the future, helping out local LAN cafe store Guf set-up a impressive array of gaming machines and equipment to make the event run smoothly.
