It's Monday, and you all know what that means: time to check out what activities and events we have going on in the community this week.
All-Time Greatest Gaming Sidekick! Last week we asked you to decide which 64 characters should make it to the bracket stage. Check to see who made it to the next stage and who didn't make the cut.
But if you want to get straight to the business of creating your bracket, that's fine too! We want you to predict the outcome of each battle for a chance to win the grand prize as well as the opportunity to declare "I told ya so!" But you better act quickly because you have only until September 7, when the bracket selection stage will end and the voting will begin. Want to see who other GameSpotters are rooting for? Want to cheer on your own sidekick? You can check out the All-Time Greatest Sidekick Forums page here.
Hold on tight as we prepare to switch gears for Call of Duty XP! On September 2 and 3, GameSpot will be back down in Los Angeles for Call of Duty XP. Things people can expect to see there? The event will take place on a 12-acre compound and will be complete with demos, live entertainment, paintball matches featuring The Pit, and, of course, Modern Warfare 3. All of the money from ticket sales will go to benefit the Call of Duty Endowment, a nonprofit group founded by Activision in 2009 to help soldiers transition to civilian life with job placement and training programs. What are you looking forward to at CODXP? Let us know.
Another year has come and gone for PAX Prime, and there was a lot to check out, Borderlands 2, Halo 4, Torchlight II, Assassin's Creed Revelations, and more. You can check out the highlights of PAX Prime as well as our awesome photo gallery. And those out there who helped to spread the word of PAX over the weekend were awarded the critically awesome "That's How I Roll" emblem.
