The Dark Side of eSports Pros

As it is with many many things in life there are certain temptations that can take over a person's life. We've heard many stories of professional athletes, movie stars, politicians, etc falling down dark holes with alcohol, drugs, gambling, and more. The thing is that these type of things indeed happen to even eSports Pros. In a recently breaking story it was revealed that over 11 professional StarCraft II players were caught match-fixing. What this means is that they would intentionally lose matches while betting on them to rack in some serious money.

I know that many people might see those large checks that players win during the big tournaments, but there's a lot of distributing that goes on as well as the fact that with so much time needed to keep at the top of your game you don't really have a chance to have another stream of income. This is why betting is so tempting. You know the ins and outs of what you're going to be betting on and if you play your cards right you can make more money in losing one match than you can in winning the whole tournament. Now of course this is illegal and much like professional athletes like the baseball player Pete Rose, being caught has heavy consequences.

Currently there isn't an exact fine being asked but many think that the fine will be all of the match-fixing winnings. Unfortunately for this eSports pros it would appear that the penalty won't stop there, it would appear that they will be banned from being able to play StarCraft II professionally. I don't know if they will be able to switch over to other games and play professionally, but something tells me that there would have to be many stipulations and promises made for those players to even get a shot at playing professionally again.

Viking Men Have Gone Missing

In the game Cornerstone: The Song of Tyrim, you will play the role of Tyrim, a young boy who is sent to find out what has happened to all the men of the village. This sets off an adventure that will send you all over the lands where you will have to craft, solve puzzles, defeat enemies, master different modes of transportation, and a whole lot more.

This game was just officially released onto the PC after starting life as a KickStarter project in 2013. You can pick up this game for the PC, Mac and Linux for the price of $19.99. I have to say that many of you out there are going to be very willing to drop that amount of money on the game as you are going to want to see the 8 different islands that you get to explore, the many different vehicles that you'll get to use, and of course the physics-based puzzles that will be standing in your way.

Help Survivors of a Plane Crash Survive

8 Points wants to show you their latest game The Wild Eight, a game that is centered around a catastrophic plane crash in which eight people have survived. You will need to craft, protect, build, and of course survive through a procedurally generated world. In this world you will not be able to relax for one moment, if its not creatures then its the true evil that you have to deal with, the weather.

Here's the deal, though, this game needs your help, they are currently trying to get this game KickStarted and they need your help. I know that there are those out there who won't give to a KickStarter project unless they can take the product for a spin, so here's the Windows Demo. I think you're going to find something that will have you both frustrated and so hungry for more that you won't be able to get away with out at least "one more try".

Super Dungeon Boardgame Coming to PC

Some of you probably know of the game Super Dungeon by Soda Pop Miniatures, a turn-based strategy game. Well it would appear that thanks to a partnership with Underbite Games a PC version is going, and this game shall be called Super Dungeon Tactics. 

In this game you will create a party of heroes to take on the evil forces of the Dark Consul in the land of Crystalia. You, as the guild master, shall direct the heroes to take on random encounters, side quests, and of course TREASURE. 

Now I'm sure there are those out there who want to immediately know, "Where can I play this game?" Well there's good news and bad news. There is going to be a demo available to play this weekend, however it will only be accessible for those attending PAX East. So for those who are attending PAX East, you lucky bastards (or bastardettes?), soak it up and tell us how bad we missed out. For the rest of us, I guess we'll just have to hope that this game will find its way to us sooner than later.
