If youre the type whod call in sick to perfect your Avatar, stand up a first date to play Final Fantasy XIII, or trade your firstborn for a pre-release copy of Halo: Reach, get your slothful self down to the 2010 Bookmans Video Game Challenge. Competitors will play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Xbox 360 in a two-player team tournament style, with the top three scorers taking home gift certificates and goody bags. If youre a noob, be warned -- this is some serious gaming. Wireless controls are forbidden. Games that end in a tie must be replayed. And, if you have to use the bathroom while youre playing (god forbid), you'd better have some adult diapers underneath your shorts or youll forfeit the match.
