🔥 Good Stuff

🏆 Best of the Best
It's almost that time of the year when we celebrate the people in charge of brainfucking us with incredible video games with the most prestigious awards, here you have The Game Awards nominees

🎉 It's a Party
Epic Games and Houseparty have been flirting with each other for months, and we finally get to see them commit. Fortnite has video chat now. On other cool (but scary) news, with Epic acquiring Hyprsense, they will be able to put our face expressions in Fortnite.

🐺 The Wolf Bombs
We had the craziest League of Legends Free Agency period so far, if you want to know about every single roster change follow Jacob Wolf and Pablo Suarez

🥵 Follow the Hype
📺  From the Dust
Not sure how I found this post with Nintendo's old school commercials. The Mario vs Sonic Olympic Games' video almost killed me.

🔮 Gaming and Culture: Blurred Lines
Team owners saying that their only focus is to win, and not to be a content house is bullshit. They are insecure of their current content or they don't fully believe in their staff's capabilities. Period. You need a stable business in order to win titles, and for now, winning some trophies per year won't make the cut. It actually will help you cover only a couple annual contracts. Latest dope content investments? 100 Thieves x 2Hype and NRG Castle.

🎞 Trailer of the Week
The Monster Hunter, based on a video game series from Capcom. Movie release in the US: December 30th.

🪑 Is this the one?
