Super Public Event Honoring the History of DBZ Games and Celebrating the Launch of Dragon Ball FighterZ

I remember my first exposure to Dragon Ball Z…. A friend at school wanted to sketch a Freezer on my shirt. Whereas other friends left messages, jokes and crude outlines of body parts, this friend wanted to sketch a kitchen appliance. It wasn’t until he had done, I am pretty sure I just left him with the shirt as it was taking so long, that I discovered he meant Frieza.

Back in Black

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare $1,000,000 Championship Announced


Activision and Xbox are once again teaming up to bring the Call of Duty Championship to sunny California.

This March, 32 teams from around the world will battle it out to try and take home the title of best Call of Duty team in the world and a significant chunk of that enormous $1 million prize pool.

The 32 teams will be made up from Europe, America, South America, Asia and Australia after an online qualification tournament that will take place in February.

If you’re yet to watch any of Advanced Warfare’s competitive multiplayer, I’d strongly recommend it. It’s one of the most entertaining when it comes to a spectating sport for a long time. MLG’s first competitive CoD season is well under way and OpTic Gaming are currently crushing the competition.

TL;DR: 27-29th March, $1 million, Santa Monica CA, streamed live.
