StarCraft II

Here are your MLG Summer Championship winners

Not every winner at the most recent MLG tournament were cheaters. StarCraft II, Mortal Kombat, and SoulCalibur V all went on without a hitch during one of the most intense weekends in recent memory. Heck, it was intense just for me to keep tabs on all the streams as best as I could! It sure didn't help that I was having troubles switching streams easily most of the time.

Over $50,000 in prize money was handed out to the first place winners over the weekend. Leenock was able to dominate StarCraft II, REO took Mortal Kombat, and Xephukai placed first in SoulCalibur V. There was also the SCII World Champion Series going on, in which the top nine finishers will move on to the Battle.net World Championship in Shanghai, China on November 17-18.

Did you manage to catch any of the action over the weekend? I was entranced by just how well Leenock was able to take first place so convincingly. It's a bit sad to know I will never be able to control units like he does.

Here's the more detailed breakdown:

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.
