Well another annual World Cyber Games event has passed and I have to say I was a little dissapointed with the outcome. I'm not sure if it was the venue, the tournament screw-ups, the lack of FPS 1v1, or all of the above....

It's been quite a while since I've attended a gaming event (CPL Winter to be exact) so I was excited to get back into it. Trinelin and I were doing shootouts at the Razer booth and it was pretty fun to play Quake III again...it had been so long but it's really like riding a bike, it didn't take me long to get back into it though my rail was R-U-S-T-Y!

During the nights we would drive over to the players village, which was about a 20 min drive from the event (and our hotel) to hang out in the STOKED ENERGY lounge. Stoked is a new energy drink making waves throughout North America and they are very interested in getting involved with gamers and giving out free drinks, which is great for us! :D

The Stoked team had rented a suite at the player village and had open doors nightly with free pizza, Halo 3 battles and as much energy drinks as you could have. I really liked the selection....there was 5 different kinds: Original, Sugar free, Dragonberry, Tropical orange, Wind Chill (feels cold going down) and After burn (has a warming effect!)

I'm hoping that myself and the team can start going to more gaming events, (granted there is some to go to!) As it was a good time as always. I've posted some photos in the ESR gallery if you'd like to take a peek.

Trinelin has also written a nice photo blog, which can be found by heading to girlzdestruct.com

Maybe see you @ CPL Winter!
