Dreamhack winter 2008 is over. But I wanted to share something with you guys: The opening ceremony!
Sorry for the bad quality.

You cant see it but they're actually shooting rockets over the crowd. You can hear them about 08:17

well they started selling tickets about a week ago and there's not too many left.

Dreamhack is the worlds largest computer festival and is being held twice a year (once in the summer and once in the winter) in Jönköping, Sweden.

Dreamhack Winter 08 is being held 27-30 November.

Anyone going or has been there before? This winter is going to be my fourth time...
Its not just for the games. The atmosphere, the people, the events, competitions and the activities are great. And ofc the unlimited illegal downloading
I spend less than 50% of the time in front of my computer when im there. The rest of the time I walk around with my friends and test games that haven't been released yet, other activities, sleep or eat.

A trip around Dreamhack:

The fastest internet connection in the world at Dreamhack (enough to provide net-gaming to 1 billion people)
They also have the biggest router in the world, which being cooled with the same coolingtechnique as the fighter jet Gripen.

Im slightly interested in seeing how dreamhack is close up, but im not for the playing 3 days in a row habit.

Maybe i will go to it for just once, sometime.......

But I can play at home with online games and such.
Dont need to go there just for playing games.^^
