TA at MLG

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
The Newshounds here at TrueAchievements do our best to keep you, our amazing community, updated on the news of the industry and what's going on in Xbox-Land. Typically, this involves us going through press releases, disseminating information and pulping it into the delicious news goo that you expect from our high-quality team.

This weekend, however, that is going to change a bit!

Starting tomorrow Major League Gaming will be invading Columbus, Ohio (the hometown of your favorite Newshound... or, failing that, me) for a weekend gaming tournament with serious prizes on the line. The best news of this whole shebang is that we've got you covered. Starting tomorrow afternoon (2:00PM EDT) I'll be on-site covering all of the events for TA.

If you're interested in what's going on with MLG there are several things you can do to stay in the loop.

1- Check back here for updates!

Every evening I'll be submitting a report on the day's activities. What was cool, noteworthy, spectacular or even spectacularly mundane. Since I'll be on the scene, I'll be working to get interviews with the pros as well as possible tips for you to use in your multiplayer gaming. In short, I've got blank slate to work with and am going into this with the goal to find you the most interesting angles from the weekend.

2- Follow me on Twitter.

I'll be live tweeting through the day with what's going on at the Greater Columbus Convention Center as well as news and updates from the contest. You never know, I might find something funny and/or scathing to post, too (Terrelle Pryor MAY show up in a Ferrari, but that's pure speculation.). You can follow me @osubluejacket

Plus, if enough people are in the area and interested, there MAY be a tweet-up... possibly surrounding some Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream.

Now here's where it gets fun. We (and by we, I generally mean "I") want to know what YOU want to hear from this weekend. Do you want interviews with the pros? Tips on how to dominate https://www.trueachievements.com/Mortal-Kombat-xbox-360.htm, Halo: Reach or https://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops....htm (the three console competition games)? Industry spotlights from MLG and other exhibitors? Where to find the best chow and brew in C-Bus? You name it! We've got an awesome community here at TA and we genuinely want to know what you'd like to see covered. So keep it positive and let us know what you think!
