” link=”lightbox” size=”xlarge” align=”center” nocrop=”true” clear=”true”] Video gaming’s not a sport? Don’t tell that to MLG.TV — an Internet-broadcast network that’ll showcase the league’s major events and, yes, broadcast a studio show with highlights and news, akin to the coverage that, yes, real sports get.


This Is How You Hijack A League Of Legends Tournament

This must be one of the funniest e-Sports stream hijacks I’ve seen so far. During a League of Legends event at this year’s Gamescom, someone in a classic creepy horse mask continuously kept distracting viewers from the commentators. So good.


The Must-See League of Legends Match Of The Weekend

Over the weekend, many professional League of Legends, StarCraft II and Call of Duty players convened in Anaheim, California, to compete in Major League Gaming’s Spring Championship.

Misunderstood Bro Culture And Obnoxious First-Person Shooter YouTube Videos

You press play. A homemade logo or two pop up — maybe a clan or a made-up studio. You notice the name of the player — lots of X’s, maybe a 420 reference, and the rest seems incomprehensible. That’s when the top 40 song begins. Then it happens: a man dies. Cause of death? Headshot, intentionally timed to connect when the bass dropped (if the song happens to be dubstep.) We’re watching an earnest kill montage video of a popular shooter, likely from an MLG hopeful.


Australian Halo 4 Team Tear Up The Competition At MLG

Australia’s top pro Halo squad Team Immunity headed over the to world’s first major Halo 4 tournament at MLG this weekend. 260 of the world’s best teams attended and, despite the fact some of the top seeds had two weeks to practice the game, Team Immunity still managed to place 9th.

I'm Watching The Best In The World Play Halo 4 Live, You Should Join Me!

As we are all aware, Halo 4 is out this coming week, and the thing I’m most looking forward to is getting involved in multiplayer again.
