BlizzCon 2009 came as fast as it went.

Read on to see our recap on this years event.
We encountered not only Booth Babes, but more CosBabes and even CosDudes in costume at BlizzCon 2009.

This year’s BlizzCon has exploded with hardware vendors trying to get the attention of gamers. We stopped by their booths to find out what hardware goodies they had for the people. Read on to see what ASUS, Intel, Kingston, NVIDIA, Razer and SteelSeries were showing off at BlizzCon 2009.
Today, Legit Reviews is proud to bring you floor coverage of Blizzard Entertainments 4th BlizzCon Gaming Convention in Anaheim, California.

Often described as the “Woodstock of Gaming,” QuakeCon is a four-day, non-stop celebration of games and the people who play them. Free to all and open to the public, QuakeCon 2009 featured North America’s largest Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) LAN party for nearly 3,000 people and we bring you some coverage of what you missed.
Legit Reviews has been scouring the BYOC at Quakecon 2009 and has found 15 cases that have been modded and stand out from the crowd. We saw a bunch of Dell and HP computers as well, but who cares about store bought PCs. Quakecon is all about Do-It-Yourself systems and the gamers here are the real deal.
We wrap up our coverage of the 2009 E3 Expo with a look at some of the titles for your console and PC that we think will be the “sleepers” of 2009/2010. Most of these products will not be available until later this year or early 2010, but many of the developers and designers were willing to let us take some pictures and film their product to bring it to you, our faithful readers!
We wanted to see the hottest hardware that this year’s E3 Expo had to offer. There was a huge buzz about the new Sony Playstation Portable introduced called the PSP Go. We tracked the PSP Go down and got some great video footage of it and much more!
