Pink and Deadly

The Firestream Firefight

If this evening will find you avoiding any and all new releases that end in “2”, perhaps you will consider stopping by The Running Riot for their scheduled Firestream Firefight. Louis Wu (of HBO), Jironimo (of Ascendant Justice), Insane54 (of Forge Hub), and Firestream (of Halo Charts) along with myself  will be indulging in a round or two of Halo 3: ODST’s Firefight set to broadcast via Livestream. A little birdie told me that we will be playing on Legendary so I anticipate numerous rampant plasma grenades and betrayals galore. And that’s just from Louis Wu! :rimshot:

One of These Things Is Not Like the Others

Play With Bungie!

FLAG halo tournament

If you’ve found yourself wanting to play with your favorite video game developers but have in the past left your fate up to the random whims of matchmaking, it’s probably about time you took your future into your own hands. Fight Like a Girl, an annual Xbox Live charity tournament where 100% of the proceeds go towards finding a cure for breast and cervical cancer, is now giving you the opportunity to play with Bungie, all for a Grunt-sized donation to their cause. For $15 you and a buddy can  live the dream by taking on two official employees either cooperatively in ODST’s Firefight mode or competitively in the arena of Halo 3 custom games. Check your schedule and if you find yourself with 20 spare minutes the weekend of Saturday October 17th and Sunday October 18th, then go register and secure your spot as slots are obviously limited. Your mom has always warned you not to play with fire. Perhaps it’s time to find out why.

4th Annual “Fight Like a Girl” Halo Charity Tournament

FLAG halo tournament

If you’ve ever wished you could make a difference just by playing your favorite video game, your dream has officially come true. Fight Like a Girl, an annual Halo charity tournament presented by The Cavegirls, is upon us once again. Taking place over Xbox Live the weekend of October 17th and 18th, this year’s events include FFA, 2v2, and 4v4. Single entries cost a mere $10, and each and every dollar donated goes towards finding a cure for breast and cervical cancer, diseases that affect thousands of women and their families every year. There are prizes of course but really, do you need anything more than that warm, fuzzy feeling you get from consciously making this world a better place? I didn’t think so. Go read the details and then get to signing up. Those bewbs aren’t going to save themselves you know!

Win My PAX ’09 Swag Bag!

pax '09 swag bag

Video game conventions are incredible for two primary reasons- the abundance of women dressed in suggestive video game-themed costumes and the ease at which you can acquire a bag full of awesome swag. I’ve already given you some pictures of the former so now it’s time for your shot at the latter. Up for grabs are all the things I collected from various gaming companies over the long three day weekend, plus a very special item (a Cortana faceplate slathered in autographs) from my own personal collection. If you want to win my PAX ‘09 swag bag, simply leave a comment on this article listing at least one of the Bungie signatures adorning the amazing faceplate. You may comment once a day and while you will not be disqualified for leaving multiple comments, only the first one from each 24 hour period will be considered valid. This giveaway closes on September 24th so hit the jump for the complete list of prizes, close-up pictures of everything, and all the specifics.
