The perennial gaming powerhouse ScrewAttack announced that they will hold another massive gaming-gasm in Dallas this summer, and you have your first chance to pick up your tickets.

The annual ScrewAttack Gaming Convention (SGC) will return to DFW on July 11-13 to the downtown Sheraton Hotel and the tickets for what's sure to be another massive collection of video game soaked brains and dignitaries have just gone on sale.

So far, there's no word on what exactly the ScrewAttack collective have in store for the fans who can afford to shell out $45 for a three-day entrance badge. Past conventions have featured appearances by notable game names such as Adam Sessler, James "The Angry Video Game Nerd" Rolfe and even the industry's public enemy number one Jack Thompson. The convention is also known for springing a few surprising firsts on fans by offering the public, playable previews of new games such as last year, when the crowd got its first look of the new Xbox One reboot of the classic two-on-two fighter Killer Instinct as part of the convention's annual Iron Man of Gaming tournament.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
