The livestream is live! And John Carmack's keynote is up at 16:30 today, anyone else interested in settling in for the fun and games? Is anyone actually there right now? Does anyone actually care right now? I personally like to see those crazy flashy personal computers (have you heard, they have HARD DRIVES in them now?), listen to John, see some sick Quake players and look on at just a whole heap of people enjoying the sights, sounds and...smells...of PC gaming.
Some highlights (I hope) that I've picked out for you to peruse over the next few days...
