Hahah that's not surprising.
Put some games in that I'd rather watch, and I'll tune in indefinitely.
I'm not the biggest supporter of MLG gaming, but I think watching it on the television would be interesting to say the least.
Cant wait for the networks to pick this up! we are so many that enjoy this now so they have to sometime!
Halo 4.... That is all...
Jordan you work for game informer now ?
TURN IT INTO SOMETHING TEAM BASED!!! I WANNA ROOT FOR A SAN DIEGO TEAM!!!!
Link to find out where I can watch it? Sure then I'll watch it.
Hooray for eSports!!!
I went to an MLG tournament before and on the far corner of the place was a little booth for a smash bros brawl tournament which anyone could enter. I was more interested in that than the main attraction which was halo 3 tournament at the time.
That certainly is a big increase, especially with the many tournaments it has. I look forward to take part one day in the future.
I'm sure them adding games like Mortal Kombat had a lot to do with it. The amount of hype MK alone has is just insane. Some of the most amazing things happen during those matches even beyond MLG.
I wasn't one of them.
what games? lol?
