Rocket League: The competition is growing

Posted on September 13, 2015 at 9:01 am

I have written a lot about Rocket League; my hopes and dreams for the game, talking about stats and sales and talking a lot about the competition that the game is beginning to foster. Unofficial tournaments have begun to spring up all over the world with top players competing for peanuts. However some of the bigger sponsors are beginning to get involved; they have seen how many people are playing, they have seen the sales and they finally want a piece of the pie.
ESL are involved – and that is always a good place to start. They are attracting the top teams, the top players and, finally, the top “teams” in the world are involved as well. eSports teams like fnatic are taking Rocket League seriously and, with their support, we could well see Rocket League emerging into the big time of eSports.

Euro Truck Simulator 2

Games do some seriously amazing things sometimes. The virtual worlds created are breathtaking displays of imagination, artistry and passion allowing players to immerse themselves in ancient lands, alien worlds or stunning fantasy locations. Very occasionally, though, games will try things a little bit closer to home. I am not talking about things like Call of Duty where you shoot various Middle Eastern groups in “real life” situations.

 

I am talking about things like Euro Truck Simulator 2. The game is exactly as you would imagine it to be; you are tasked with driving a heavy goods vehicle across various stretches of European road. The game is painstakingly crafted to perfection; creating an extremely realistic, and oddly relaxing, experience. It’s not just the realm of the uber nerd, either, the game is massively popular and the success is well deserved.
