Holiday Boredom Setting In?

Oh the holidays: shopping, traffic, cold weather, awesome sweaters, and plenty of family time. One thing that is seriously lacking for the holidays is video game tournaments… or is it? If you’re aching to compete, check out some of the events ASTRO is involved in this holiday season.

If you’re in the New York area December 11th and 12th, be sure to check out the WCG Holiday Heroes event at the Samsung Experience in NYC. This event will feature the new Halo Reach Noble Map Pack, with both cash and product prizes provided by ASTRO Gaming and Samsung. Attendees will also get to get some hands time going head to head with the new Tron Evolution game as well. You can find more information about this event through the WCG website here.

If New York is a bit far from home, and you’re based in the upper midwest that same weekend(Dec 11th and 12th), there is a multi game tournament called Focus Fire you won’t want to miss happening in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Attendees will be able to compete in Super Street Fighter IV, Halo Reach, Call of Duty Black Ops, Tekken 6, Madden 2011, and more. This tournament is dishing out cash prizes along with some A40 Audio Systems as well as Scout Backpacks. For registration and more details about the event, be sure to check out the Focus Fire website here.

Now get back to those gingerbread houses!
