Shalthis Esports Debuts

With the recruitment of a winning 2s team in Rocket League, Shalthis Esports is now alive and actively recruiting!

Founded by Rocket League shoutcaster Steve “Shalthis” Perry, SES is one of the first esports organizations to sign a doubles team specifically. In light of the NBC Tournament, SES will appear there, in the weekly Gfinity event, and continue to win at the regular FACEIT tournaments.

Shalthis Esports is still looking to sign several teams, including League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, and a Rocket League 3s team, just to name a few.

SES is a North American esports org which means it may run into difficulty against some of the European and Asian teams in certain esports which have been dominated by those teams.

What sort of impact will Shalthis Esports have? Only time will tell.

GKick Review: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
Activision Blizzard | Activision Blizzard | PC, iOS, Android | Free-to-Play

Hearthstone is a free-to-play digital card game from Blizzard Entertainment, the same company behind World of Warcraft, Diablo, StarCraft, and Overwatch. Hearthstone is centered around, features characters, and settings from the Warcraft universe.

New Reviews Are Inbound!

During April 2016, I suffered a series of strokes. Since then, I have been unable to walk, talk, or eat. However, I’ve also been unable to use much of the right side of my body. That includes my right arm. That means I have been unable to play many games – including my consoles – that have been released. All future reviews that I write will include a section where the game is reviewed for my injury.

Since I can’t use my right arm, I thought I’d review games for those with a similar disability. Basically, if any folks have an injury or disability that prevents them from using one arm, maybe I can help. Anyone may find the reviews helpful, since each review will take a close look at each game. They may also be beneficial to anyone with a disability of any kind, since they’ll see a lot of these reviews and games and may want to play games either as they’re trying to heal or if they just want an easier time dealing with their disability.

So, more should start appearing on the site in the coming weeks. I hope you’re all as excited as I am.

ESL ESEA Pro League Season 2 Grand Finals – Fnatic vs. Natus Vincere

It was a long and difficult road for both Fnatic and Natus Vincere in Season 2 of the ESL ESEA Pro League, but ultimately both teams would secure places in the grand finals following four days of some of the stiffest CS:GO competition with 8 of Europe and North America’s best teams. But after a final series that was just as action-packed as the entire season, it would be Fnatic who would capture the championship for the second time in a row.

GKick Movie Review: Fifty Shades of Grey

Oh yeah. We’re doing this.

Whether you dislike it because of it’s misrepresentation of the BDSM scene, the fact that it glamorizes an abusive relationship, or just the fact that it was originally Twilight fan fiction, there are plenty of valid reasons to dislike the book Fifty Shades of Grey. However, it has become a massive success for no deserving reason, and has therefore spawned a movie. Continue reading “GKick Movie Review: Fifty Shades of Grey”
