GameSpot Tournament TV hosting "Fight the F.E.A.R." tournament for players of VU Games' shooter; championship round to be held on St. Patrick's Day.

by

If you like playing F.E.A.R. but don't much care for drinking green beer, you're in luck. On St. Patrick's Day--aka next Friday--GameSpot will be holding the championship of its Fight the F.E.A.R. Tournament. As one might guess from the title, the weeklong event will test players of VU Games' and Monolith Software's first-person PC shooter's skills. The top dog in the tourney will win $1,000 of Best Buy gift cards. Registration opens this Friday, March 10, at 3 p.m. PT (6 p.m. ET), with the actual tournament beginning on Tuesday, March 14. The finale will be shown on GameSpot Tournament TV at 6:30 p.m. (PT) on Friday, March 17. Besides the online carnage, the Tournament TV broadcast will also sport a halftime trivia contest and a prize drawing.

Batalskar, I agree. I played it on the PC, but couldn't help but think how cool it would be on the 360. This is a game that would benefit from 5.1 DD. And while you may not get quite the same responsiveness with a controller as you would with a mouse, I still think I would prefer a controller for this game; I like having all the buttons closer together. I also see no reason why the 360 couldn't run this as well, if not better, than a PC.

I wish they would do a console game once =( but i guess the PC is better right now since not many people have 360's and anything on XBox or PS2 is "obsolete". I dunno, I wish they would give us non-PC players a chance for something.

It is aptly titled if its longer than the still exciting Winter Assault tournament. Be afraid, very afraid... P.S. If this stuff get's hot let hope the big TV networks catch on and actually copy it well or.... let gamespot do it cool huh huh Also I dont have a BIG BAD PC right now so anyone joining the tournament were no longer friends :) just kidding!

Did they ever implement any kind of anti-cheat software for this game yet? If not I wouldn't be willing to go up against who knows who using who knows what to win that big money.....cause you KNOW if they can get away with it they will,especially for something with high stakes like this.You can just about assume the guy that wins it all probably will have had a little "help"......sad... To be honest that has been one of the drawbacks I think to ANY of the tourney's Gamespot has held....If they are gonna do tourneys like this I think they need to have all the players running demos of themselves playing just to be able to go back on later if there is any "QUESTIONABLE" activity on a players part. That's how any of these seperate ladder tourneys do it for games like sof2, BF2 ,ect... Escpecially if the game has built in anti cheat software like PunkBuster, admin's of a tourny can even send the demos out to the punkbuster/Evenbalance team to review to make sure there has been no foul play. Most of you probably think well he is waaay to paranoid...But belive me like I said ...cheaters WILL try to take advantage of things like this if they can and I just hate to see great things like what gamespot is doing with these free tourneys to be ruined by a bunch of lowlifes......
