New Dinkytown business a haven for gamers

Left Click Lounge, Dinkytown’s first video game center, will open its doors on Friday, Sept. 15. The business, located on 14th Ave. SE between Tim Hortons and The Refinery, will offer various gaming platforms for local students and clubs to play on. Left Click Lounge owner Ryan Christianson saw the business as a way to unite an often quiet community.

“I wouldn’t tell someone I’m a gamer, I kind of keep it on the down-low,” Christianson said. Through the business, he said he hopes to dispel negative notions of gaming. “It’s so beautiful because it shouldn’t be something people are embarrassed about but unfortunately it is, and that’s very … sad because there are people that are so good,” Christianson said. The business will offer around 40 PCs and console systems, along with various games. No form of fighting or bullying will be tolerated, he said. “It’s different,” Gast said.

Longview retoma el PC Gaming en México llevando la tecnología al consumidor

En México, la falta de iniciativa de las marcas y de un ecosistema de mercado bien definido ha dado lugar a que su adopción se de a pasos pequeños, apoyándose únicamente de quienes ya lo conocen y la Internet. Al día de hoy, el PC Gaming continua ascenso en el país pero no se le ha dado la importancia que requiere como ya sucede en otras partes de mundo donde funciona como el principal motor que sostiene la industria del gaming. Con un enfoque distinto del que pensamos se había extinguido hace un tiempo, el pasado 26 de Octubre, Longview abrió las puertas de su Gaming Center ubicado en sus oficinas en Polanco, Ciudad de México, con la finalidad de ofrecer un espacio que se convierta en el segundo hogar tanto del gamer así como de las marcas con presencia en el país.
