GameSpot's first tournament of the year will be...explosive. Registration begins at 4 p.m. Pacific today for GameSpot's Bomberman Live Bombs Away tournament. The Bombs Away tourney is open to GameSpot Total Access users, where six players will enter the battlefield, but only one will depart without a singe in Bomberman Live's battle mode. Matches begin January 28 at 11 a.m. Pacific, and the finals will be broadcast live on Tournament TV on February 1 at 4 p.m. Pacific.
All participants in the final round are guaranteed to walk away with a prize, regardless of whether their legs remain affixed to their bodies. To the winner will go a $250 gift card for Best Buy, while the remaining finalists will each receive a $50 Best Buy gift card.
The Bomberman Live tourney is open to all US and Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) aged 13 and up. However, registration is limited to 96 slots. Head over to the tournament page to register and get a complete rundown of the rules.
