About Us

LanOC Reviews is a website specifically for gaming, gaming hardware and LAN parties. We started by hosting LAN parties and moved into reviews in March of 2008. We are fairly new to the review scene, but are able to give an opinion from a gamers point of view because we are gamers! All of our reviewers have been well versed in their specific areas of interest due to an unnatural need to play video games and tweak hardware. We want to help you find the best performing products along with the best games to soak up all of your time. We are a group of down to earth geeks who spend all of our time tweaking our PCs and playing  console and PC games. We also host our LAN parties in the Northwest Ohio area four or more times a year. You can learn more about us by visiting our forums where you are welcome to ask questions and chat up new and old games and hardware.

Our Staff

Our staff is filled with a variety of interesting people with lots of differing point of views. In other words, we are all crazy in our own way.

Editor-in-Chiefwes1

Name: Wes Compton

Homepage: Garfi3ld.com

Alias: Garfi3ld

Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Specialty: PC Hardware, Audio, Gadgets

BIO:  You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. His obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legions, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. You can follow Wes on Twitter HERE, or on Facebook HERE

 

 

Review and Event Staffalex

Name: Alexandra Compton

Alias: Koolaid

Specialty: Public Relations Guru

BIO: When she can be pulled away from her games, Alex has been known to post up product and affiliate news. Of course as per the norm, its difficult to pull her away from World of Warcrack without some sort of power or internet failure.
 

Contributing Editor / Event Staffadam4

Name: Adam Army

Alias: Lersar

Specialty: Laptop Hardware, Console Hardware, Enclosures

BIO: Adam is a big proponent of LAN parties, esports and speed-running, and helps organize our semi-annual LAN events. He has covered hardware and software reviews of a wide variety, but most content these days come from event coverage, such as other LAN parties.

Event Staff jared

Name: Jared Sellars

Alias: Plague 

Specialty: Keeping Things Moving!

BIO: Jared is the newest addition to our event staff. He will be in charge of tournaments both before, during, and after our events. That means those of you who come out for our lans will spend lots of time with him. He is a friendly guy and as far as we can tell he doesn't bite. Outside of our events he enjoys his fair share of games like the rest of us and can be found tweeking and modding his Antec Skeleton case. 


Review and Event Staff Debo

Name: William Deborde

Alias: mem0man / Debo

Specialty: PC Hardware, Video Games and Electricity

BIO: William is the newest addition to both the Review and Event staff. Being in charge of power, hopefully you have to see very little of him during our lans. Outside of lans he can be found engaging in his unhealthy obsession with all things gaming in between writing the odd review and bothering Wes at all hours of the day. An avid gamer nearly all his life, it is common for the latest MMO release to cause him to drop off the face of the Earth for a week or two.
