Some of you who’ve been following this blog for a bit might have come across my slightly amazing talent in playing electronic gaming, particularly (ok maybe only) at minesweeper. My best score was 62s in the expert mode, are you impressed?! I know you are! 😀
Four to five years back I used to play other games too, a few years ago ST and I with a few other friends were really into Warcraft III DotA Classic a lot. Late nights at cybercafe until the early mornings (or even next evening) were not uncommon. I remember finally beating a team of players in the same cyber cafe after a few trials and they immediately quit playing DotA Classic and went on to the current version or something. Ahhh those were the days, and if I had continue pursuing that electronic dream until know, who knows I’ll be a champion?
That brings us nicely to the huge event this coming weekend. The World Cyber Games in Malaysia!
For the uninitiated, WCG is the largest gaming festival in the world with over 70 countries and at least 1.2 million people participating. Huge huge event with lots of prizes, competitions, cosplay girls, and everything in between.
There are people (especially those crazy Koreans) who make a living out of playing competitive cyber games, and WCG is always the main event, kinda like the Olympics of electronic games. Every gamers’ dream come true!
This time around, the bunch of jokers at Nuffnang is into it as well and looking for challengers to Counter Strike competition! If you think you can beat them (which I think and surely hope you guys can cos these guys are getting a bit too proud), sign up here to beat them!
Over there you can also find out ways to win a 32″ LCD TV *gasp*, digital camera, or mp3 player from Samsung just by writing blog entries. Hope over to there to find out ok!
