Battlefield 3 Early Deployment Beta Tournament
That's right, I said Battlefield 3 beta tournament! For those lucky people who live in the fabulous California Bay Area, we are inviting you to join us for this event. We will be dividing people into four 12-vs.-12 groups as they battle it out in Rush mode. To sign up, head over to our events page here. Not in the Bay Area? We will be streaming the tournament live from right outside the GameSpot offices, giving you a chance to see the action and maybe get your hands on a few beta keys.

GDC 2011 in Austin, Texas
Yee-haw! We hope you are all excited for GDC 2011 located in the heart of Texas. Yep, Austin is an amazing city, and we are excited to see what GDC has in store for us this year. What do you guys want to see? Be sure to check out our Events and Attractions board and let us know!

Gears of War 3 100% Club
Gears of War is having a contest, challenging you GameSpotters to unlock Gears of War 3 achievements for a chance to win some pretty amazing prizes. What are they, you might wonder? How about a gold retro lancer and a custom limited-edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360? Check out this page for more details. Looks like Garrison_Ford and dab198 are rocking pretty hard!

Member Spotlight

This week's Member Spotlight shines on XenoLair for his fabulous entry in the My JRPG Tokyo Game Show activity titled "Andromeda Chronicles."

Union of the Week

This week we are featuring the Battlefield Union. It's one of the newer unions to be featured in the Union of the Week awards, but a great one nonetheless. They have a great and growing community of Battlefield enthusiasts, and many of them are excited about Monday's beta tournament at our offices in San Francisco.

Tip of the Week

Did you know that when you post questions about specific games that your friends who are following can answer them? When you see a friend in need of some gaming guru guidance, simply click on "Lend a Hand," and it will take you directly to your friend's question. Pretty cool, huh?
