The MLG 2012 Spring Championships Experience Through Visuals and Commentary
After attending and experiencing the MLG Anaheim Spring Championships this year, I have completely re-thought my ideas for how I would cover this event.

Event Special Gameclucks StarCraft II Tournaments
Few tournaments in the circuit would allow a player as god-awful as myself to join in the fun, even when I present to them an entrance fee comprised entirely of United States Dollars.

Online Gaming Friends, IRL
We walked through the bustling mall on an average, wet Seattle weekend.
