BREAKING - FU jerseys banned by @owpathtopro for possibly being too hot to handle. FU jerseys on sale soon. #BAMF

There is always some good drama from top eSports teams, and this time around Fusion University decided to give their team players, nice new 'Jerseys' to wear, the only trouble is they went and had the team initials F U printed nice and big, and of course people watching them play, would think of the 'other meaning' those two simple initials have, not of course simply the team's name.

Video games have been around for decades, with hundreds of consoles and countless games coming and going past us.
Since the first games were developed, people have been infatuated with them, with many becoming a part of the gaming sub culture.

Over that time, we got used to gamers and stopped finding anything strange about a person who spends much of his free hours playing video games. After all, video games are lots of fun and there is no reason not to do that instead of watch movies or do any other entertainment activity.

However, over the past decade, video games have evolved in many ways. From the introduction of numerous multiplayer games with multi-million player bases, to the brand new concept of eSports, competitive gaming where players are awarded with real money prizes and treated like proper sports stars.

If you are not familiar with the concept of eSports and how...

eSports as a concept have been around for quite a few years now and they have been increasing in popularity and value every single year to date.

In 2018, eSports are bigger than ever, with more games available and teams and players competing than ever before.

Unlike regular video games where players are playing just for fun and leisure, eSports are true competitions of skill and wits, pitting the best players against each others and giving them a chance to win prestige, awards and lots of cash money for their victories.

To find out everything there is to know about eSports, you can visit eports.net and get a full rundown of all the competitions, players and teams involved with eSports, but for the time being, let us have a look at what the most popular eSports are in 2018 and which games you should look into playing if you are just getting...

Zombies have been around since the mid-19th century and are generally considered to originate from Haitian folklore.

In fact, such was the people's belief in them that they were written into Haitian law in 1864. They are essentially humans in undead form neither dead nor alive in any true sense but, rather, dead people reanimated.

They have been used in horror movies to bring fear to audiences ever since the horror genre first hit the big screen. It wasn't until George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead in 1968 that zombies hit popular culture in the West and interest in them grew and grew. Yet, there is another side to the zombie too. Perhaps due to their increased popularity, a more light-hearted, humorous take on them has developed that started on the big screen and has now transcended to smaller screens in the form of video games and television shows.

When did zombies get so funny?

Only $19.99MSRP / Available July 13, 2018

The portable mode of Switch is nice, but you don't always want to hold the whole unit in your hands, and dock mode is great for relaxing in front of big screen, but let's face it, that little 'kick-stand' at the back for tabletop mode, is royal pain in the ass, as you can't charge and play, you think big 'N' was dumb in the design dept. in doing so, but nope they are smart, as now you have to fork over another $19.99!

In a recent earnings call, Andrew Wilson, CEO of EA, had the following to say in regards to loot boxes:

We have reported before, on the growing trend of adding 'Loot Boxes' into our games, and EA is leader is this horrible new way to rake in some more money from their fans, and it seems they are willing to push forward with it more, but all the while claiming 'they are thinking about their loyal gamers', well maybe not thinking how to make them happy, only thinking about their hard-earned dollars!

CheckSaves.jpg
@BernardoGiordano just released the popular savegame manager known from the 3DS for the Switch.

GBATemp'er @lordelan reports that finally scene developer @BernardoGiordano has finished the porting of the popular 'Checkpoint Savegame Manager' from the 3DS handheld over for usage of Switch'es that can run the Homebrew launcher, sadly that is currently limited to v3.0.0 and @Scarlet reports that v2.3.0 works as well, but if you been following the fast-moving Nintendo Scene you will know that will change soon, as video teasers of HBL running on v5.0.x firmwares have been released earlier this week, sadly the second downfall with this 3DS savegame manager port is that it needs the 'touch screen' to use it, which means only backing up your 'saves' via portable mode, not while in 'docked mode', but hey still a ton better then waiting until September 2018 for the 'official' cloud save feature...
