Looks like there is a contest going for best "suicide" in Grand Theft Auto IV.
If you happen to have this game and a camera, take a video of a death and enter it in the contest. Bragster is offering up $200 in video games and the contest is available to US and International gamers.

More contest details here!

Most of you have heard of Lil' Poison the 9 year old with a contract as a pro gamer. I had a chance to interview his father, Victor Deleon while at the Gamers 4 Giving. In this short interview he gives you details about his sons career and also talks about some of the big things coming in the future for the young Halo champ.

I havn't got around to posting any of my videos from the Gamers 4 Giving charity event I attended in Ypsilati, Michigan recently. If you are not familiar with StarSlay3r, she is a professional Guitar Hero Cosplayer who tests video games for a living and travels to events to rock out on GH, she also cohosts Coinop TV on occasion.

Enjoy the cuteness that she is.









It's family members and friends who made me the gaming freak that I am.
Its the jealousy I had growing up not having things other kids had.
I remember going to my friends house and he hand hundreds of video games for Atari and NES. Yet I had a copy of street fighter and sonic 2. Great games but weak in comparison to my friends. Hell I used to even have a game for SEGA CD my parents bought me. The thing is I DID NOT EVEN HAVE A SEGA CD and they never returned the game. I used to pop the game in my audio CD player, it would actually play the soundtrack off the disk.

Anyways, heres a video of some pricks giving their kid an Xbox 360.. box.
We have seen videos like this before, but you know what its just wrong. Why prank a kid?
I wouldn't be suprised if this same kid ends up robbing a semi truck with a 1000 Xbox 720s in 3 years. :P .

Hey what's up gamers, just got a question to ask. Are you attending any gaming video game events or maybe just geek events? This year there will be more tournaments and small gatherings of gamers popping up more then ever. What have you got your eyes on and would like to attend this year.

Most of my money goes to funding my trips to gaming events. Yeah it sounds dumb but its fun as hell. It becomes an addiction each year. This March I plan on attending Gamers 4 Giving which is a big LAN in Ypsilati, Michigan. They plan on having a big Halo 3 tournament with a 1000$ prize.

After that in mid-April I plan to fly out to Seattle to hit up the Microsoft MVP summit, this is a 4 day event where I get the chance to see the future of Microsoft products. Any questions you guys want me to ask MS when I'm there?

Then of course there is the Penny Arcade Expo towards the end of August. I really don't know how im going to get money for this event, but after going last year it feels like a requirement in '08. I had a ton of fun, but I predict that will cost me nearly a grand.
