Ring in the New Year at LAN Speed

11 12 2012

As said before, December becomes a bit of a gaming freeze as far as events go, but the good folks at LAN Speed Games are intending to celebrate 2012 in style: with a lock-in!


LSG is planning to host a New Years’ Lock-in bash starting extra early so gamers can wile away the last vestiges of the year and push on through to the new one with plenty of titles to entertain them. The whole shindig will kick off at 6 p.m. on December 31 and run until 10 a.m. the next day.

The crew at LSG are promising tons of prizes, tournaments, and giveaways throughout the night. Seats can be reserved for the event at $30 a person and potential attendees are encouraged to sign up ahead of time in store. For more information, check out their official Facebook event page.

Black Ops II action galore this week

4 12 2012

December is beginning to fill out a bit with events for gaming. Although tournaments seem to be in short supply this month, there are tons of casual opportunities to play with your fellow gamers and be merry.


Starting off is Mesa bar and grill Monsterland hosting a video game night on Wednesday. The event is 21 and above only, and will include casual play (or possibly a competition) for Black Ops II. The event will kick off at 8 p.m. and go until midnight, check out their Facebook event page for more details.

Continuing the Black Ops II trend will be Fix and Play hosting their tournament for the shooter title on Saturday. The competition will take place at their 83rd Ave. and Camelback location and start at 5 p.m.

Entry fees will likely be the same as their last tournament and cost $5. The grand prize winner will net themselves a $60 gift card to the store for some holiday spending.
