Over the course of this week's FIFA Interactive World Cup, Spencer "Gorilla" Ealing scored 46 goals across three days on his way to the grand final. In a 7-3 aggregate, Ealing not only took home $US200,000 ($252,223) in prizes, but the first FIWC win for England since 2005.

Know how Target has some great deals on games this week? Turns out Big W is coming to the party as well.
If bugs and glitches are a good time, then the ones in FIFA are the best time. And they are even better brought to life.
September is officially past us, which means the latest version of FIFA is now out on store shelves. But there was a big question mark hanging over this year's FIFA: would the change to DICE's Frostbite engine spell the end of the hilarious glitches bringing players together in so many, many wonderful ways?
The answer: no. Not by a long shot.
Across the Lifehacker, Gizmodo and Kotaku staffers we have a lot of gamers with a lot of different preferences. But one of us has been scarred with the unshakeable tag of Dudebro: our publisher Danny. He plays FIFA to death every year. He even plays UFC, bless his heart. And we all give him copious amounts of shit. Because while he might point to a past love of StarCraft and his aptitude with coding, deep down, Danny's a Bro Gamer.
There's nothing wrong with that, of course. Hell, I've spent nearly 400 hours playing a cricket game. And when the year is done and dusted, gamers like Danny might end up being the happiest of all. Because if you think about it, 2016 is an amazing year to be a Bro Gamer.
