Headshot! World's Best Gamers to Battle in Dallas

Don't get chicken wing sauce on the Xbox!

From the hours we log on Xbox Live, you'd think we'd be pro gamers by now -- but we're nothing compared to the players coming into town for Major League Gaming's season finale this weekend.

From Friday, Nov. 5 through Sunday, Nov. 7, the Hilton Anatole will fill with the sounds of digital battle as players of Halo, StarCraft, Tekken, and Super Smash Bros try to take out the competition.

It's a lot more serious than your average multiplayer match -- these players can take home loads of cash from various companies, including pro combine title sponsor Doritos. In total, Major League Gaming has giving out $700,000 in cash this season. (That's a lot of Doritos!)

Even if you're not up to the challenge of participating, just watching these pro players can be a blast. We've seen some of the more incredible StarCraft 2 victors type faster than in order to defeat an opponent. And even using our old standby, Eddy, we wouldn't last a minute against the Tekken players.

Finally, if you're a Halo fan, it's a pretty great bet the competition will have the best of both worlds for you, with both the sunsetting of the Halo 3 competition and the first-ever Halo: Reach event on the pro circuit.

Costs vary for the different participation events. Admission for spectators is $25.  More information available at the official MLG site.
