OWL Week 5 Results and Stage 1 Playoffs

Wow... What a week. Dreams were crushed and dreams were made. Boston, after having an amazing set against Philly, failed to beat Houston (in, IMO the best set of high level Overwatch we have seen) too secure their playoff spot. After having a rough start, Dallas managed to win a game in a dominate fashion. If they played this like all of Stage 1. The playoffs would…

Reminder: Elder Scrolls 6 Is at least "Two Big Game Releases" Away

     So this is sort of good news and bad news.  The good news is that there will eventually be a sequel to Skyrim.  The bad news is that we're going to have to "manage expectations" according to Pete Hines, head of public relations for Bethesda.  These aren't going to be small titles either, "We are not talking about things like a Fallout Shelter kind of project but, like, big multi-platform releases like you expect," he said. …

(Edited) Developing Story From The Overwatch League That You Can't Miss

Last Sunday I report that Geguri has been signed to an OWL team. It took 48 hours for this news to change drastically. 



Where it started was a reddit post, saying that during a live stream. Geguri commented that she was picked up by "a foreign team" and gave no other information on it. The rumors started flying on what team picked her up. Names like Dallas and Boston were flying around, as she has ties to both of those teams in one way or another. 

The next day it was…

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn Launch Trailer!!

I have been unreasonably excited for Shaq Fu : A Legend Reborn.  I really liked the original pre-Shaqtus, pre-big Aristotle, pre-Hobo Master (yeah that's really one of his nicknames) game.  The new one looks really cool.  The only fault I see so far is not calling it Shaq Fu Part 2.  Check out the trailer below.…

OWL Week 4 Results An Standings

Not a super big week in terms of upsets but, a lot did happen. First off, this was the week of sweeps. Out of the 12 games total played this week, 8 of them were 4-0's (which lead to the new meme "4-0verwatch"). So nothing exciting at all. The Dragons once again lost all of their matches and are still in last place. With us going into week 5, its safe to say that…
