Super Gamer Episode 59 – The Gigantoraptor was a Real Dinosaur

Well ain’t I embarrassed. Apparently I don’t know my dinosaurs. Tune into the new episode to confirm it.

Actually, tune into the new episode to hear about The Final Specimen, a new (and yet, old) game from Gigantoraptor Games, that is sure to kill you with laughter (and, like, so many other things. You will die… in this game).

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.

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.
