FRAG – The Movie (via YouTube)

Filmul “FRAG” mi se pare un film care prezinta in totalitate “gaming-ul” si acest fenomen. Personalitati precum Michal Carmac Blicharz, Angel Munoz (CPL Founder and President), Johnathan Fatal1ty Wendel, Billy Mitchell (omul care a ‘spart’ recordurile mondiale la Pac Man, Donkey Kong si altele) discuta despre ceea ce a fost gaming-ul de la inceput pana in ziua de azi, sau nah, pana in 2008 cand a fost scos filmul. Se vorbeste despre Commodore64 (primul meu calculator hihi), console, Apple 2, Castle Wolfenstein, DOOM, Quake, Counter-Strike, Gaming, Amateur Gaming si Pro Gaming

Jos aveti filmul, vizionare placuta!

1 Bullet – pZq Style

Daca ati fost atenti la categoria “Bash!” dar vorbeam cu ‘fratele pZq’ despre o ‘faza’ pe care a facut-o jucandu-se pe un server de gather al Gather Network. Dupa ce i-am spus ca-am facut misto de el spunandu-i ca trebuie sa aiba webcam pentru a putea salva fragul, el mi-a trimis demoul sa ma minunez si eu vazand cat de bine a jucat. M-am gandit sa-i mai usurez treaba cu webcamu’ si i-am extras eu faza.

Pentru pZq: Sper sa-ti placa, fratele!

Mai jos aveti faimoasa faza, fragul extramegasuper pe care l-a facut.

Plot
The true story of professional video gaming. Almost everyone in the world has played a video game, but some kids do it for a living. FRAG shed light on the struggles that kids face while trying to break into and maintain success in pro gaming. At a young age, they are faced with making adult decisions that impact the rest of their lives. Below the surface of a simple game is an underbelly of corruption, money, drugs, and even death. Exploited, abused, and abandoned, most gamers fail to reach the top, but like all sports, their are heroes, FRAG pulls the curtain back on the biggest sport industry in the world..one that you know nothing about.

My preferred quotes:

“Many people would think that being a professional gamer is easy, but they have absolutely no idea about the kind of stress that gamers are subject to.”
— Carmac

“It’s like doing drugs. It’s like having sex.”
— Kim Rom

Google NU a cumparat Valve

Zvonurile care au circulat pe internet in legatura cu Google cumparand Valve au ramas doar zvonuri.

Ieri, site-ul binecunoscutului ziar, The Inquirer a reportat faptul ca “SURSE BINE PUSE” (scris mare) le-au spus ca Google va cumpara Valve din secunda in secunda. Aceasta va fi momentul prin care Google se va implica pe piata gaming-ului, printr-o companie cu succes precum Valve, cu titluri ca Half-Life si Counter-Strike, cat si serviciul Steam.

Cateva ore mai tarziu, PR-ul Valve, Doug Lambardi a dezmintit ceea ce s-a scris, spunand ca este vrajeala din partea “The Inquirer”

Daca nici Google nu mai are bani, sau Valve nu vrea sa vanda celor de Google, ma intreb cui ar vinde? Cine ar fi apt sa cumpere Valve?

“the switch!” by Danny “fRoD” Montaner

Story told by us Danny “fRoD” Montaner, best AWPer in the World. Playing for us Los Angeles compLexity

Changing to 1.6 after not touching it, and playing source non stop for over a year and a half is really tough, especially being a professional at both. When you make that jump from an amateur to professional, it’s really all about the wealth of experience you’ve gained and knowledge. This was one of the keys that excelled me to the top in 1.6, and slowly but surely, in the source scene as well once the experience set it. Now that I am fully functional in both games, it throws a twist into your playstyle and team style. In both games I am a super aggressive playmaker, I guess thats probably the best way of describing my style. But, the trick is, both games have their versions of aggressiveness and how they are meant to be approached.

In CS period, it doesn’t matter what you know, its all about: what you know, and how you can apply it. Many players know so much, and know what to do, but without confidence and execution of game plan, whether it be personal or team, needs to be fulfilled. After dm’ing a lot on my own and scrimming a bunch, I feel like most of the rust is shaking off from 1.6, and I will be able to miss a lot less awp shots 🙂

Another thing about the game, is the way your brain needs to function. This was easily one of the harder things to overcome. In 1.6, I excelled at being smart and innovative, which requires your brain to think of solutions as situations are presented to you. In source, you don’t really need to use your ‘brain’ per-say, it’s really a game made brain that if you just follow the way things are ‘supposed’ to be done, the ‘appropriate’ result will follow, which shows the need to not think as much, therefore being easier. In 1.6, every situation and every moment of the round (yea, there is so much more round time to make things happen its unreal), that your brain is forcing you to think a lot and process all the information presented to you. Thus, making 1.6 a lot harder and more challenging. And for me, thats really what I want, a challenge. So glad I feel like the underdog, it’s my favorite place to be in gaming. 🙂

Thanks to all the supporters staying positive with the team, we are really trying hard and trying to fix everything we can. It’s really challenging, but at the end of the day, we are here to accept that challenge and will try to bring a lot back to this franchise and great fanbase. And on a side note, I’m officially addicted to the coin games where you drop the coin and it pushes others off for tickets at dave and buster. I go with my girlfriend often and just clean house.. time to save for a bike!
