What are you playing this weekend?

The heat wave across the globe is making being outside unbearable. Instead of doing something proactive about the impending global climate crisis, let’s do what we do best! Stay indoors, play some games, and wait for all this to blow over.

Here in Texas, I’m going to hide away from incineration by playing Team Fight Tactics – a new game… or mode (I don’t know) that lives inside of the League of Legends client. I recently downloaded LoL to try playing again and tapped into the Beta of TFT. I am hooked on their iteration of Auto Chess. The only thing heating me up this weekend is losing over and over to 7 obviously more skill opponents that I know – in my heart of hearts – are worse than me.

Up in Chicago, Ernie (Spacecase522) and Anna (rxysurfchic) from the Alienware Community Engagement team are going to be competing in the Red Bull: Rise till Dawn. The two of them will be doing an all-night marathon tournament playing Halo 3 on July 13th. Anna played Halo competitively when she was a wee lass but has lost her ability to shoot with a controller. Ernie has never played Halo (How?!) but games with a controller all the time… even on the PC. Will this duo win the tournament? Top 3? Maybe top 8? People of Earth better send them their energy to win big.
