Video Game Day 2011 Recap

By François Chang

March 1, 2011

One week, three tournaments, and multiple prizes later, we have for you the recap of our Video Game Day 2011 event. As you may already know, Video Game Day 2011 featured tournaments for Call of Duty: Black Ops, Halo: Reach, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Prizes for all the main tournaments were provided by none other than Mad Catz, and the other prizes throughout the day were provided by various other companies that will be named throughout the post with their contributions.

Some of the prizes throughout the day were given to the winners of the tournaments, but the majority of the prizes were distributed by picking out winners from a raffle. Ticket holders looked forward to lots of great stuff including a PlatinumGames prize pack, a Yakuza prize pack, copies of UFC Undisputed 2010 signed by Brock Lesnar, and the grand prize of the day, an Astro Gaming A30 headset system.

Since the event was held in an indoor gym, the basketball hoop was readily available to hold a basketball shooting competition for copies of NBA Jam. It kept things a little more interesting, and certainly got gamers who have been sitting all day out of their seats for a little while.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops tournament was won by none other than Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez (middle) and his team of (TLR) The Last Resistance. Goldenboy also contributed his shoutcasting abilities throughout the day, and certainly brought a little of the competitive spirit TLR is known for. For more on the other winners, happenings, and footage throughout the day, check out the video below, and be sure to check out the rest of the photos as well.
