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."

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
