The Gaming World SA LAN was held this past Saturday to give a few Cape Town teams the chance to warm up before this coming weekend’s MWEB GameZone LAN in Johannesburg. Six teams battled it out in a best of three round robin event. It was F34R Adept that once again swept aside all-comers in their race to first place. Team Polar finished in second spot. The full brackets can be found here.

And to further cap a weekend of F34R Adept domination, the team took the MWEB GameZone online ‘Freeze Frag’ tournament on Sunday, where they played the fellow F34R team, F34R TBG in the Xbox 360 final.

Kalahari.com has added a host of new Collector’s Editions, as well as all Xbox One accessories now being made available for pre-order.

eSports

Porn and gaming… Yes. Together at last. We think. YouPorn – the “World’s #1 Source for Free HD Porn!” – is asking whether they should sponsor a League of Legends, Dota 2 or Hearthstone team. Whether tournament hosts will allow teams sporting their logo into the venue is obviously pretty debatable. [Tip via @CongoKyle]
