We Pwned Cancer!
There is nothing better than firing up your 360, jumping online with a friend and two gaming gods and to help put an end to breast and cervical cancer just by playing Halo 3. This past Sunday that is exactly what I did. The Cavegirls hosted their annual Fight Like a Girl tournament and not wanting to miss out on the action, SonofMacPhisto and I hit up the 2v2 competition to go head to head with Bungie.
Rather than stick with the Team Doubles game type, we opted for a FFA match so we could chat whilst fragging each other.
FFA Slayer, Snowbound, First to 25
Tone of Game: Hilarious
We began our 20 minutes of Bungie filled glory with a trip to the chilly wasteland of Snowbound. In the arctic Forerunner facility we made each other bleed our own blood. KidPenguin made straight for the Ghost and throughout the match managed to get some nice splatters…like this one:
There was much grenade spamming to be had, a couple of which helped various players to some easy kills…namely me. A large chunk of the game was spent in the large cavern, though vary rarely did the shotgun ever come into play. 😀 Check out some of the pics from the rest of the game.
Final Score: 25 (mendi), 23 (SoMP), 15 (RM). 10 (KP)
FFA Slayer, Cold Storage, First to 15
Tone of Game: MacPhisto-y
Our second and final game of the evening was deep in the bowels of Installation 05. Amid the icy steel and warm Flood goo, three Spartans waged war in the name of preservation (Elites don’t count) 😉 . KidPenguin was lucky enough to get the choice spawn and took up the Active Camo and Sniper but came just shy of clipping SonofMacPhisto in the back of his noggin.
MacPhisto had control of the rockets for the majority of the game, but just couldn’t seem to keep them. I, however, managed to fall victim to nearly every rocket that came my way (except for two).
RocketMoose and KidPenguin seemed to have it in for each other more in this match than the previous. This not only made for awesome screen shots, but also some hawt Bungie on Bungie action!
Perhaps the highlight of my post (for me at least) is this gem I accidentally found while reliving the match.
All good things must come to an end, and ours ended all too soon. MacPhisto pulled ahead and stayed there taking the coveted first place…and then rubbing it in my face…literally
Final Score: 15 (SoMP), 10 (Mendi), 10 (RM). 7 (KP)
First off, I would like give a amazing huge “THANK YOU” to both RocketMoose and KidPenguin. For taking time out of your day to help out with such a great cause, and for being nice enough to let us win. 😉
If you didn’t make it into this year’s Fight Like a Girl tournament don’t fret, there is always next year! However just because you didnt get to play this year, that doesn’t mean you cant help. Cancer isn’t annual and every donation helps, if you’ve got the means, I highly recommend it!
Did you Fight Like a Girl this year?
