Another week of gaming in SA has come and gone, but you know what? There’s more to come.
Free Comic Book Day
We sadly couldn’t attend this year’s Free Comic Book Day in Cape Town hosted by Readers Den, but if you were also in that boat, we can help you out.
There’s plenty of pics thanks to Readers Den and their fans, and you can find them here:
Gamersxtreme are looking to kick off a Dota 2 online tournament to compliment their monthly LAN events. When is still to be announced, but keeping your eye on their Facebook page may keep you in the loop.
Gaming World SA
GWZA hosted their ‘ZA CLasH OnLiNE’ (we just report it as we see it) Cal of Duty Ghosts tournament this past weekend.
16 teams competed in the single elimination event which saw F34R Adept take the honours 3-0 in the final against Team Nameless.
Full bracket here.
Rumours are circulating that GWZA will be hosting a LAN event again in June. We’ll keep you updated when we get the skinny.
League for Gamers
The name pretty much says it all right. It’s a league. For gamers. In South Africa. We had to clear the last bit up a little.
League for Gamers has launched in South Africa with an online Black Ops 2 tournament for Xbox 360 featuring 18 teams and they appear to have Incredible Connection backing them.
