This weekend at CEO 2015, the fighting game tournament got a little intense. Not the actual gameplay, mind you, but the pre-show. Watch competitive player Kenneth "Stone Cold" "K-Brad" Bradley enter the, er, ring for an Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 match. I kid you not, he knocks a dude out.
Another player, Dieminion, took a much stealthier approach to his entrance:
Redditor GatorMacheteJr loves Fallout more than you do. Don't feel threatened, dude loves Fallout more than any of us. This brave vault dweller collected a grand total of 2,240 bottle caps (around 11 lbs) over the last seven and a half years, and then had the stones to send those to Bethesda as payment for a Fallout 4 pre-order.
His gamble (and very expensive shipping bill) paid off, because he's receiving a copy of the game. According to an email he got from Bethesda, since he was the first person to try this method of payment, they'd honor it (read: don't get any ideas, rest of the internet!). Well done, sir!
Every gamer knows that the bond formed with their virtual teammates is as real as any formed in the real world, and losing one of those friends is a truly painful loss. After one of their clanmates passed away due to complications arising from a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis, the Dads of Destiny clan found a truly touching way to salute their comrade.
Known as TheSquashPhD in Destiny, Joshua R. Stokell of Charlotte, NC passed away on June 8. He was 36 years old. Josh had a PhD in Microbiology and was a Post- Doctoral Fellow at UNC-Charlotte researching Cystic Fibrosis.
