FanQuest BEGINS!

It’s here and we’re here! If you’re at FanQuest in Winnipeg today, come say hi at the Super Gamer Podcast booth. You’ll know it because it’s the only one without a tablecloth, with signs made on looseleaf with a felt pen.

Last night things kicked off with a 40th anniversary Star Wars social. Take a look:

In fact, if you do drop by, you can take a look at a couple giveaways we’ll be having (rules will be posted at the booth)! Super Gamer is also sponsoring a couple small prizes in the gaming tournaments.

Dauphin Kings Ukrainian Night

Hey there!

The Dauphin Kings, an MJHL hockey team where I live, Dauphin, Manitoba, recently held its second annual Ukrainian Night, featuring: the kielbasa toss! Dennis Beyak, who does play-by-play on TSN for the Winnipeg Jets, dropped the puck before the game, and there was even a mattress race. ‘T’was a heckuva good time.

Let it be known that this is a gaming blog. Hockey’s a game. Hockey’s awesome (I am.. not awesome at hockey). So here’s some video I took of Ukrainian Night, between the Dauphin Kings and Virden Oil Capitals, on January 28th, 2017.

RLCS Day 2 – When Second Best Isn’t Good Enough

From second place in the first tournament to first place in the second, Flipsid3 Tactics are your Rocket League season two champions!

The defending runner-ups found themselves in a familiar situation, needing to take the long route to the finals, as they did last season. Flipsid3 started the day facing off with NRG, one of two North American teams left in the competition. Game one was all NRG. Flipsid3 looked awful, missing a ton of balls.

RLCS 2 Day 1 – EU > NA

It was a rough day for North America at the Rocket League Championship Series finals in Amsterdam. Orbit, NRG, Genesis, and Take 3 all lost in the first round, and two of them are out completely.

With all four NA teams in the lower bracket, they were made to face each other in elimination bouts. Two were guaranteed to play tomorrow and two would be going home. NRG took on Genesis, Take 3 met with Orbit. Orbit had the best regular season record of the bunch, Take 3 the worst, but T3 came out on top, sending the Orbiters around the world, back to North America. In the other series, NRG won handily. The participation award for the tournament goes to Genesis, who didn’t win a single game.
