Trends with Benefits: Ferraris, Quake and conquest with gaming legend Thresh


On this week’s show, Trends with Benefits welcomes pro gaming legend Thresh, A.K.A. Dennis Fong, A.K.A. the man who won John Carmack’s Ferrari at E3 1997. We get the lowdown on his inauspicious beginnings, early tales of Quake conquest, and the delicate matter of getting his prize Ferrari from Atlanta to California … without knowing how to drive stick.

We also discuss Fong’s latest venture Raptr, our favorite arcade games, Nintendo classics, and what happens when gaming meets virtual reality.

Joining Thresh for this week’s show are Digital Trends gaming writer Will Fulton, managing editor and reformed Quake addict Nick Mokey, and host Greg Nibler.
