Bomberman LIVE tournament headed our way for the new year

10:49 PM on 12.31.2007 // Jim Sterling

In the before time, the long-long ago, there existed an Xbox Live that did not have Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 on it. Yes, I know I speak heresy but it is true, I remember it! You remember it to, if you cast your mind back to long suppressed ages. In this bleak and untamed prehistoric realm, we played other games online. Games like Bomberman LIVE. Remember that? Hudson remembers, and has announced a tournament for explosion fanatics everywhere (the ones who aren't Bin Laden's chums).

The "Bomberman LIVE New Year's Bash Tournament & Sweepstakes" will be for US gamers (boo) who can compete for the grand prize of an almighty 100,000 Microsoft Points. Think of the amount of times you can download Space Giraffe with all that abstract moolah! One time. You can download it one time. Here's how we throw down:

In the "Bomberman LIVE New Year's Bash Tournament," players will drop
bombs with reckless abandon.  They will attempt to get the most frags
on the "Weekly Ranked Friendly Fire Leaderboard" which records
performance in the new "Friendly Fire" game mode on any map.

The games shall begin at 5:00 a.m. PST on January 6, 2008 and end at 8:59 a.m. PST on
January 13, 2008. The one catch is that you need the Bomb Up Pack 3 add-on downloaded to your HD, but who cares? It's a great little game, right? Hit the jump for the dirty press release.


U.S.-Only Leaderboard Tournament Has Top Prize of 100,000 Microsoft

REDWOOD SHORES, CA - December 31, 2007 - Hudson Entertainment, the
North American publishing arm for Hudson Soft, today announced the

including a 1st-place prize of 100,000 Microsoft Points. Registration
begins at 9:00 a.m. PST on December 31, 2007 and ends at 8:59 a.m. PST
on January 13, 2008.

In the "Bomberman LIVE New Year's Bash Tournament," players will drop
bombs with reckless abandon.  They will attempt to get the most frags
on the "Weekly Ranked Friendly Fire Leaderboard" which records
performance in the new "Friendly Fire" game mode on any map.  This new
mode is available only by downloading the "Bomb-Up Pack 3" add-on pack
for Bomberman LIVE from Xbox LIVE® Marketplace.  The tournament begins
at 5:00 a.m. PST on January 6, 2008 and ends at 8:59 a.m. PST on
January 13, 2008.  Concurrently, people will be able to enter the
"Bomberman LIVE New Year's Bash Sweepstakes" by simply registering at
the official registration page.


"Our goal with Bomberman is to bring the fantastic gameplay to a wider
fanbase." said John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson
Entertainment. "We start off the new year with a big tournament in
Bomberman LIVE on XBLA, then move into new Bomberman Land releases on
the WiiT, DST, PSP®, and mobile. We have lots more planned to bring
even more fans into the community in 2008."

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?
