skupples true, and the contracts between player & payer are better in Esports as well

UltraMega Esports will out pace the NFL in the next few years so it makes sense for the news to want a piece of that pie.

skupples my head hurts. please stop.

someone pinch me. this is farking obscene. This seems like a desperate attempt by a failing corporation in a failing medium trying to cling on to what's hip, while also branching off from their base of political stuff.

[WaPo] Introducing Launcher, a new section covering video games and esports from The Washington Post


This is a bit of a meta-news, I suppose, but I think it's a bit of a big deal that mainstream media is heading toward covering video games with the same sort of direct effort that they do for movies, music, and sports.

The first day's content has some current events related to Fortnite and the Blizzard-Blitzchung incident. Reviews, release news, and other such things also seem to be the standard fare one might expect in other sections.

Time will tell whether this is of value, but the attention is quite deserved.
