If you were lucky enough to be in Chicago, and even luckier enough to get into the Pokemon Go Fest, then you were pretty unlucky.
Being a former radio pro, I immediately noticed how lame this whole set up was. Especially being that it was for one of the most popular franchises on Earth.
I could have set up a better event promoting dog feces.
And that's not even the biggest problem.
Nobody could play. Nobody could take advantage of the rare Pokemon. And nobody will forget how Niantic completely dropped the ball.
I've expressed my disdain for companies that just clone games, throw a popular name on it, and try to play it off like their own original idea. This event shows why. Nothing about it was professional. It was like someone invested money for this event, and Niantic tried to spend as little as possible.
But I digress. Watch this video. It's a compilation of the event in all it's horrible glory. …Continue

This news is insane, and yes it is true. Here is the announcement Tweet from Spawn's creator, Todd McFarlane...
Yes, McFarlane will be the director of the reboot and I couldn't be more excited by that fact alone! Blumhouse Studio will be taking on this movie and the budget for this movie is around $10 million. Sounds like we…Continue

For those who don't know. I am super pumped for Dragonball Fighters Z. I think its going to beat Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite as the hype fighter of the year. As I said in my Evo announcement blog. There were 2 more fighters to be announced. Well those two fighters have been announced via the Japanese magazine V-Jump.
The first fighter is actually a little surprising.
Thats right, Krillin is joining in the on the fray. I know, its Krillin, and he always ends up dead in big battles. But the developers of the game have come out and said that power levels don't matter in this game, since its a 3 v 3 fighter. So its entirely possible that Krillin can go toe to toe with the likes of Freeze and Cell as long as his buddies are backing him up.
And speaking of "buddies…

In an attempt to keep the fans updated throughout the whole process, Atari has revealed the Atari Box. Only the console itself. And I gotta say, it's sleek AF.
It will come in two styles, initially. The classic wood panel strip as seen above, and the "glass" version:
Here's another picture showing off the ports on the back. Though not much info has been given, the ports themselves give some insight as to what to expect. …Continue

If you did not watch Evo over the weekend, then you missed out on one hell of a tournament. You also missed out on some fighting game announcements. Don't worry though, I got your back.
For those who are too young to remember. Capcom dabbled in the 3D arena at one point with the game, Street Fighter EX. It wasn't very good, and its remembered for being very broken. It was developed by a company called "Arika". A Japanese developer who hasn't really worked on anything of note and never really got a game released in the US other than the EX series of Street Fighter games. Street Fighter EX had a lot of over the top characters in it, which is why a lot of people like the game. It was a very different type of Street Fighter game, more over the top. Fans for years have asked Capcom to put some of those unique characters in a Street Fighter game, but never could due to licensing issues.
Well, we don't have to wait for Capcom any more. Arika has announced an untitled…Continue

I am a huge competitive esports fan. From MOBA's, to FPS games, to even card games. I try to watch everything I can.
My real love is fighting games. Street Fighter, Marvel vs Capcom, Tekken, and everything in between. In my teenage years, I used to attend weeklies at my local arcade. We're talking 90's here, when the arcade scene in the US was really good.
When Street Fighter 4 came out, I went back to those years and attended tournaments for that game. I was never a huge pro or even won a lot of them. I just liked going, supporting the scene, and meeting people. When Marvel VS Capcom 3 came out, I was at a convention in RI. Rhode Island Comic Con. The day I was there, they were having a Marvel VS Capcom 3 tournament. After playing some casuals with some people there, I decided to enter the tournament. I didn't win, but I did meet a lot of people who I ended up becoming friends with, and still consider friends to this day (shout outs to Chris and Devin). This is why I…Continue
