VGB LIVE 62: eSports is Legitness

Oct 17, 2016 | Podcasts, Video games, Videogame BANG! Podcast

It may be cold outside but the Weekend BANG! is here to heat things up and maybe cool things back down. Sir Aaron Carter it at the helm, as Cory V, Alex B, and the Real David Webb ride along for a fantastic voyage.

The boys get right in the world of eSports going over the latest tournament Capcom has to offer. Sir Aaron, watched two athletes square off with Ryu and Dhalsim, and took it to the BANG GANG to see why someone would ever attempt to beat a Ryu with a Dhalsim. Soon after that BANGING around the Webb shows up to dish out a little bit more news in the eSports world. From Controversy with our very own NRG Rocket League Team, eAthletes channeling Trump on Twitch, the guys get into it all.

Finally the Bang Gang rounds it out with a few BANG! Bites, and some app recommendations. Will there be law and order in the eSports world? Is Legitness a real word? Will eSports ever get city specific stadiums? Find that out and much more on this week’s Weekend BANG!
