OWL Stage 3 Week 4 Results and Standings

I'm back for another week of OWL goodness. This is the second to last week of Stage 3 and the Boston Uprising are still the number 1 team in the Stage (second place overall). I don't see them losing at all, and I predict that they are going to take the stage finals. You heard it here first. 

The Dragons actually showed some promise on Saturday, taking their…

Overwatch vs Team Fortress [VIDEO]

There's no doubt that Overwatch is a "spiritual successor" to Team Fortress. In fact, that's why I love Overwatch so much. Team Fortress was my PC game of choice, and at the time, there was nothing like it on Playstation or Xbox. 

So if you're like me and put many years into TFC/TF2...

THEN. WATCH. THIS. NOW: …

Trailer #2 Venom

This is beginning to look pretty awesome. I’m hearing Woody Harrelson as Carnage, no sign of him here, the symbiote looks legit. Enjoy.

OWL Stage 3 Week 3 Results And Standings

Wow.... that is all I can say. We have at the half way point of Stage 3 already, and still having huge games. From the Battle of Los Angeles to Boston beating both NYXL & Seoul in the same week, to the Outlaws bringing it back after their pair of disappointing losses from week 2 to the San Fran Shock with a huge upset win against the Fusion. I really think Fusion…

Week 2 of Stage 3 is behind us. With a lot of the teams changing their rosters, the results are mixed. The Dragons seem to be doing a lot better having changed out almost their entire starting line up.

Switch Getting Biggest Game Of The Year?

The Nintendo Switch dominated most of 2017, in sales and in games. With a lot of developers jumping onto the Switch bandwagon, it only makes sense that some games that you wouldn't expect to make the jump, are.  

According to Marcus Sellars, a video game journalist, Epic is bringing over their battle royal game, Fortnite, to the Nintendo Switch. Slated for late…

The King of Kong Still Wins

Billy Mitchell, the "King Of Kong", has finally been caught cheating. In the documentary King of Kong, he was kind of a "bad guy". He would never meet up for a high score challenge in person, and was kind of a dick. 

But I say he won. 

He lived his life as a champion during a time where high scores WERE gaming, and arcades were dominating the U.S. He was going…

Fighting On The Board

I am a big fan of games, be it video games or board games. I play a variety of games, every thing from Magic The Gathering to Settlers of Cantan. 

I got an interesting email the other day from a friend of mine telling me of a new board game, currently on Kickstarter. 

If you are not familiar with Kickstarter, its a way for creators and developers alike to crowd fund their dream projects. A lot of great games have come from crowd funding, and a lot of turds. 

The game in…

The Kraken Does Not Discriminate

Our second encounter with the Kraken happened whilst having an off and on battle with a galleon. In the middle of our quarrel, the Kraken attacked them. 

Of course, we HAD to get in on that. Shot at them while I boarded and started attacking the crew. 

Well, after a bit, the galleon escaped the Kraken's clutches. Then this happened: …

OWL Stage 3 Week 1

Stage 3 kicked off with a bang last week. Boston managed to win both of their games putting them tied for 4th place with their rivals the Philadelphia Fusion on the season total and 3rd place so far in the Stage 3 rankings.

The once "unbeatable" team of Seoul Dynasty has been slowly making their decent down…

With Uprising Comes Retribution

Excuse me while I change my undies. 

The event that most of us have been waiting for starts April 10th. I'm talking the return of Overwatch's Uprising. This time, with the Uprising we know and love, we get a new co-op story, Retribution. 

It focuses on the first Blackwatch mission and the "official" mode will include Genji, McCree (which I'm assuming is on his first mission), Reaper, and Moira. MOIRA!! (I'm a Moira main)…

Why I Think You Should Stop Bitching About The First Legendary Pirate

So recently a streamer on Twitch, that goes by Prod1gyX has become the first player to hold the title "Legendary" is Sea of Thieves. Which means he's reached the highest level allotted in the game to level 50 for each of the 3 categories. Which should of taken him a lot longer, but he was determined to see what happens once you reach "Legendary" status.

To sum up why people on the Sea of Thieves…
