Gamers hard at play at Quakecon.

The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom: From Donkey Kong to Grand Theft Auto, video-gaming is a serious business. And during QuakeCon Dallas is Game Central. And an unusual small exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Art.

  You can listen to the segment weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
