Topic:  E-Sports: Viable Leagues or Fad?

 

 

  • Nabbit is not overly excited about the name “E-Sports”…He thinks it feels a lot like how everything had an “X” in it in the ’90s.

 

 

 

 

  • Luke asks who decides what games are played in competition? Nabbit says that it is a lot like viral video’s…you are never sure which one will hit it “big.” Oktober suggests that some companies (like Blizzard) are much more aware of the market than others.

 

  • Luke also wonders whether the leagues can sustain their existence because the games change over. He makes the point that it’s not like the NFL or NBA because the basic rules of the game are standardized.

 

  • The panel talks about whether the future of of E-sports is Virtual Reality. Nabbit thinks that it is too soon to tell, but it could easily become the next stage after the leagues get really well established.

 

 

  • Nabbit wants more than Shooters and Fighting games out of E-sports. He suggests bring back Mechwarrior! Strategy, Equipment Modification….and those pods!

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge

 

It’s time for the Seat Warmer. An enjoyable combination of hot chocolate, caramel and, of course, Fireball Whisky. Oktober compares it to a Mexican Hot Chocolate, while Nabbit likes it but thinks it needs a marshmallow or two. Try it out and let us know how hot your seat gets. (Recipe is the post before these notes)
