BBC Three and eSports

The BBC announced last month that they are covering eSports, which is a great step for professional gaming. If you had spoken to a huge media conglomerate about pro gaming in the past, they might have chuckled and said “That’s nice”, but now-a-days, with the industry booming and with the sheer number of people involved, it’s hard to ignore it and harder still to call it a mere fad. This is the first deal of its kind, but what exactly is the deal and how important is it for the industry? Timlah here to check out what the BBC have offered professional gaming and where this could take it in the future.

Meltdown London

It’s hard finding a really good geeky bar in England. If you don’t believe me, go step outside and have a look around. See if you can find some really good geeky bars near you (and tell us all about them!)

In Bristol, we don’t have many. We’ve got Kongs of King Street and The Bag of Nails for suitably geeky pubs in Bristol… and I’m sort of accidentally on purpose changing the King William Ale House into a very geeky pub. But don’t tell them that, wait until they find this website and decide to take down our Geeky Shenanigans and make us look elsewhere. I think we should trademark Geeky Shenanigans.
