There's going to be a fresh set of faces at this year's X Games event in Austin among all the familiar high-flying, trick-pulling daredevils. The new guys on the scene will be professional gamers, eschewing traditional X Games mainstays such as half pipes and mounds of dirt for controllers and flat screen televisions.

Major League Gaming announced today that it has partnered with ESPN to bring the top Call  of Duty: Ghosts teams to the June 6-8 showcase in Austin, Texas. The winners will be awarded medals, lending credence to the fact that ESPN considers them legitimate participants in the X Games, and not some sort of sideshow affair.

It's hard to deny that MLG doesn't necessarily fit into the "extreme" archetype that the X Games has become so well known for. However, with eSports on the rise, there's definitely an audience, and this might be an opportune place to gain even more exposure.

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing ...more

Review: Destiny

It's been a small journey reviewing Destiny, but now I've experienced every facet of the game and I'm ready to make my decision. As mentioned previously, the story and setting leave a lot to be desired, but the gunplay is ver...more
