Finally! A dude who smiles in one of their team photos!
Licensed apparel sales in traditional sports are a major source of income. It’s about time to see eSports getting on board with better merchandise and branding (actually, some of the branding has been great, just the merchandise hasn’t taken advantage of it IMO).
Gamecube controllers for Smash is one of the few gaming traditions that makes complete logical sense. I have no strong nostalgia for Nintendo, their series are hit and miss like so many other studios (for me), and I’ve happily emulated their games on an Xbox controller...except Smash. The gamecube pad on Smash is…
Back when I tried playing Smash WiiU with a WiiU controller the game felt awkward to me and I was terrible.
I really wish Nintendo would continue making controllers for their legacy systems. A few months ago, I wanted to break out the N64 to bring to a friend’s house, and I found that my controllers are just a little too... tired.
It feels weird. Playing Smash without a GC controller. Like its doable, but the GC controller feels so much more natural. Its like how some people cant playing fighting games without sticks.
I don’t really understand why people like to hate on competitive Melee players and their stubborn resistance of the future...
Hey Eric. Didn’t mean to imply you were flippant. I actually really appreciate and enjoy the coverage over at Compete. And I especially do like the human elements. And even how you respond to criticism. So thanks for all of that. Hell I regularly read Compete items that are about games I couldn’t care less about,…
Hey, I don’t mean to sound flippant about spoilers. Like I mentioned in the podcast, I totally understand why these issues exist—esports is international, and time zones don’t always line up perfectly.
Over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacists held a rally that escalated into violence. An activist, a paralegal named Heather Heyer, was killed after a man drove his car into a crowd of protesters. I usually write about video games on this site, but today I need to talk about my dad, who marched…
I originally felt sort of viscerally repulsed by that opening paragraph for not being how any of this would typically be described by someone familiar with the game, but then it turned into a lot of respect for how succinctly and accurately it describes the situation for people unfamiliar with Dota without being…
The best play so far in this week’s Dota 2 International tournament was a steal that was both skillful and reckless. As Malaysian player Tue “Ahfu” Soon Chuan snuck into a pack of opposing Russian players and grabbed the loot they were going for, the crowd watching at Seattle’s Key Arena lost their minds.
Blizzard didn’t change her pose for being too hot they changed it because it didn’t fit her character. Widowmaker has always been scantily clad and posed sexily (she even foot stomps and chokes you which is a fetish to some).
Wish this complaint would die, it’s so played out and looking for something to complain…
As someone who studies cultural anthropology and took several human sexuality classes this is seriously the biggest non-issue I’ve ever heard of. A foot fetish could be one of the most common kinks out there.
You will need a screwdriver, a pair of tweezers, a magnifying glass (optional), some salt (~1tbsp), and a bag of chicken feed, preferably corn-based.
Excellent example as to why feminist game criticism can be helpful.
Not just El-P. That’s a Run The Jewels song, so this little guy named Killer Mike created that song just as much as El-P did.
