I’d also like to issue an apology on behalf of anyone who bet on the teams that were expected to win, because no one could be expected to predict the absolute madness week four brought us.

Into all things Disney? Harry Potter? My Little Pony? There's a dating site for every kind of nerd.
The ol’ reliable teams like Cloud 9 and Team Liquid stayed at the top, while good looking new teams like Clutch Gaming sat at the bottom. So, what makes Cloud 9 and Team Liquid so consistent?
Rick Fox has managed to pull together a roster that not only seems to gel together well as a unit, have good communication, high class talent, and a great team environment. Echo Fox is finally winning games consistently, which is great, but what matters is that they aren’t just winning.
The first week of the spring split is always an explosive one. New teams have entered and are battling it out with the former kings.
The debate around gaming’s health benefits and adverse effects is again taking center stage with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recent proposal to add “Gaming Disorder” to its list of diseases.
Another year means another season of the North American League Championship Series (NA LCS) is upon us. A number of huge changes were made since the last summer split, but I’m only going to talk about the most important ones here: franchising and format shifts.
A few superb details came out of this Direct Mini. Mario Tennis gets a promising new title to continue its spin-off franchise. The well-acclaimed Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is getting a port, which means that those who skipped the Wii U will have another chance to buy the game.
Jedi represent all that is good and Sith represent all that is evil. However, in between those two ideologies is a grey area that takes the best of both worlds and creates the ideology of the Grey Jedi.
Now as long as the gaming industry exists many more weird games will and the only thing that we the people can do is play them, question reality, and then go seek some form of mental help.
Disappointed by the lack of new Alolan forms in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? You can always find fun and fake Pokemon around the Internet.
It might even revolutionize the idea of sci-fi multiplayer shooters as more focus is given to gameplay and being player and consumer friendly with a fully fleshed out game. Perhaps it is time for gamers to start demanding finished products with compelling expansions instead of sections of a game being stripped out and resold in season passes.
Overall, Wolfenstein II:The New Colossus is a fantastic single-player first-person shooter with beautifully written characters and spot-on performances. The story greatly expands upon the world of Wolfenstein with B.J. and his friends fighting to save America from the oppressive Nazis, with a memorable villain like Frau Engel being a formidable adversary to B.J. Blazkowicz. Fans of the series and of first-person shooters who want an exciting story will enjoy this game with its approximately 14-hour campaign that gets them to mowing down plenty of Nazis in a colorful grotesque fashion.
'Super Mario Odyssey' is a worthy successor to the 3D Mario games and an incredible addition to the Nintendo Switch library. The possession mechanic brings Mario’s adventure into a whole new light that keeps the player’s curiosity going. Despite Odyssey’s few flaws, the ample amount of creative moon challenges and the phenomenal level design make the game feel like an escape, encouraging the player to let out their inner child.
'Assassin’s Creed Origins' is a refreshing and exciting addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While it is bogged down by the side quests and the in-game store, these are surpassed by its engaging story and characters, its complex and exciting combat system, and its loads of content. It is a revitalization of a stagnant franchise and will hopefully take future Assassin's Creed games in a new direction.
'Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back' is a mediocre reboot of a franchise famous for mediocrity. It’s no surprise that the game isn’t that great; it’s source material was bad as well. The real crime of this game is that the devs think charging $30 for a two-hour indie game is acceptable. For some perspective, the absolutely amazing 'Cuphead' is $10 cheaper for a much longer gameplay experience. 'Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind' even had more levels and playtime, so there’s no excuse for this. The only reason this game has to exist is to be bargain bin meme trash bought for friends or enemies on the Steam Summer Sale.
In what might be the quickest turn-around between allegation and repercussion, the manager of Overwatch e-sports team San Francisco Shock Max Bateman was let go just 14 hours after the abuse allegations were shared over Twitter. A woman under the handle Krystlin had tweeted that Bateman had sexually assaulted her in September after giving her a drink that made her go “in and out of consciousness” and driving her back to his home.
This weekend at BlizzCon, among many things, Blizzard announced the new Overwatch hero Moira—a support healer who has no ethical boundaries when it comes to her work.
'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' expands and improves on its predecessor in almost every way from longer story, deeper character interaction and development between them, abilities, loot and upgrades and the Nemesis System. Despite these great features and fun gameplay, it can feel cheap at times when Talion doesn’t seem to react to the player’s button presses or goes after the wrong target in a huge mob, wasting the momentum built by executing combos.
'Fire Emblem Warriors', for all its faults in trying to tell a decent story, still manages to create a satisfying gaming experience. History mode and other extra challenges keep the fun from running out too quickly, and the power of the game’s audiovisuals simply can't be denied.
