Each year the very best Pokémon video and trading card game players meet at the World Championships to determine who the top trainers are, and each year the Masters (oldest) Division looks really awkward on stage. This year did not disappoint.
Eschewing the unpopular and largely non-existent practice of releasing new versions of products that are worse than the previous ones, the latest version of Razer’s wafer-thin gaming laptop is better than the ones that came before it. Good call.
Somewhere around my fifth hour of Stardew Valley, I thought, “Oh, shit, 2016 is going to be a really good year for video games.”
Earlier this week I encountered a food creation so hideous that I set up my camera in the noisy press room at the 2016 Smite World Championship and recorded a Snacktaku video so I could get it over with.
These five gentlemen, collectively known as team Enemy, clawed their way into the 2016 Smite World Championship grand finals only to lose three straight games to Europe’s Epsilon, letting all of North America down. As punishment, they only get $230,000. I blame myself.
It’s Europe’s Epsilon versus North America’s evil Enemy in a best of five fight to the finish, with the winner getting more money than the loser. Let’s watch people play Smite in front of a live audience!
After North America’s Enemy secured a spot in the Smite grand finals over Europe’s Paradigm, all eyes went to returning champions Cloud9. Then those eyes got really sad.
The quarterfinals of the 2016 Smite World Championship passed in a flash of four swept best-of-three matches, including the brutal but not unexpected elimination of both Chinese teams and the boys from Brazil.
The goal in a Smite Conquest match is to kill enemy players, destroy their fortifications and eventually take down the titan guarding their base. In the first match of the 2016 Smite World Championship, one team accomplished none of those things.
Ten of the top Smite teams from around the world have converged on Atlanta to see which one plays the deity-based MOBA well enough to earn $500,000 doing so. Here’s what to expect.
Today teams from North America, the UK and various other places will vie online for a spot in the regionals and a shot at the $2 million 2016 Halo World Championship prize pool paid for by REQ-hungry fans.
A couple years of jealous drooling and suffering through the release of Digimon All-Star Rumble have finally paid off—Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is coming to North and South American PlayStation 4 and Vita in 2016.
