There are few arenas where NBA star and former Indiana Pacers captain Paul George isn’t the person everyone wants to flock around. Epic Games’ Fortnite Pro-Am tournament is one of those rare places. George, who tells Polygon it felt “amazing to be competing” in the tournament, wasn’t the main draw. Neither were hip-hop artists Lil Yachty or Vince Staples. Even actors like Joel McHale and John Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) are second-class. McHale, Heder, George and Staples may have diehard fans outside of Fortnite‘s gigantic empire, swallowing everything in its distance, but within the empire, there are only a couple of heroes. And they are gods. Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, Alastair “Ali-A” Aiken and a few other notable streamers are Fortnite‘s slightly more awkward, equally charming version of Ringo, Paul, John and George, ready to stand in the spotlight before their adorning fans and ride the … [Read more...] about Fortnite’s Pro-Am tournament embraced a new type of video game god

Every month, Sony and Microsoft announce the games PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live subscribers receive as a part of their subscriptions. However, sometimes they accidentally leak those announcements via a branch in a different country, which is what happened today. Xbox's German website has leaked their Games with Gold June 2018 titles and also what could be the lineup for other countries. The slate of titles include Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia and Smite: Gold Bundle for Xbox One and Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed and Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues for Xbox 360. Despite what the German site says, Xbox's North American website still has not updated so these titles are not confirmed to be part of other country's Xbox Live subscriptions. However, with some minor exceptions to some Asian countries, most territories get the same games from month to month. For example, Germany had the same titles as the United States for May 2018: Metal … [Read more...] about Xbox Games with Gold June Titles May Have Been Leaked
As a surprise, this month’s free Xbox Live games have been leaked before their announcement later today. The monthly picture with the Xbox Live Games With Gold June 2018 is now available online and if it is legit then subscribers will complain… A lot. According to the Xbox Live Games With Gold June 2018 leak, this month you’ll get Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Sonic All-Stars Racing Transformed, Lego Indiana Jones 2 and a $100 worth pack for Smite for your Xbox One. As you can see for yourself in the picture below, both Sonic and Indiana Jones are also available on Xbox 360: The image suggests that this month’s games with gold are worth more than $159 but it seems kind of fishy since there’s no such Smite pack in the store and it significantly raises the bundle’s value. Even the God Pack available for Smite on Xbox One with $29.99 unlocks all heroes, both present, and future. That’s 1/3 of that price, so we … [Read more...] about Xbox Live Games With Gold June 2018 Leaked, $100 Smite Bundle Included?
Sega has officially announced another iteration of a mini console based on the Genesis/Mega Drive. While it is still made in conjunction with ATGames, it seems Sega is taking more involvement in this model, and ATGames has noted that they are switching to a more accurate emulator. With that in mind, here are a few games we’d like to see on this new mini console: Castlevania: Bloodlines (AKA Castlevania: The New Generation in PAL regions, Vampire Killer in Japan) For some inexplicable reason, Konami has never re-released Bloodlines. Even Rondo of Blood, made for the relatively low-key PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16, saw a port to the Wii’s Virtual Console and the PSP as an extra in Dracula X Chronicles. A direct sequel, Portrait of Ruin, was made for the DS with no rerelease or in-game unlockable. Starring John Morris, the game is a classic-style Castlevania that plays similarly to Super Castlevania IV, featuring diagonal whipping, downward whipping, and whip swinging … [Read more...] about Games We’d Like To See On The Genesis Mini
The beer will flow, the cheers will grow, and there will be a Reading from the Book of L.T. Hello friends, it’s a tradition unlike any other, and it’s not The Masters — it’s Tecmo Madison. The Super Bowl of Tecmo Super Bowl will kick off at noon ET, and you can see all of the action live, right here, or through Tecmo Madison’s Twitch channel. Jimmie Kaska, a local sportscaster and personality, is again providing play-by-play coverage. This tournament is being staged at The Red Zone, a sports bar by the University of Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium, with sponsorships from Koei Tecmo America, Hyperkin, and The Bo Jackson Foundation (yes, the greatest player in this game). In its second year under new management, Tecmo Madison 14 is now more of an event, the tournament’s director said, acknowledging the need to engage fans and a 264-person player base in ways more befitting a modern esports tournament. Play begins at noon with the group stage … [Read more...] about Tecmo Super Bowl’s world championship is today. Watch it here.
