Today, there are more people in the world who play the online multiplayer battle game League of Legends than there are people who live in France. We wanted to see how humanity got to this point, so Vice host Matt Shea flew to South Korea, a country where competitive gaming—also known as eSports—can either make you rich and famous or land you in rehab.
Many gamers spend hours playing to hone their skills and practice new abilities they pick up along the way. But once in a while luck seems to play a part and smiles upon your gaming thumbs and a feat so incredible happens that it’s like magic.

A group of dudes have got together to do what every grownup secretly wishes they could – build a truly epic treehouse. They have decided to take the idea of a treehouse and turn it into a den, man cave and a place to throw the occasional party to.

This is one seriously awesome treehouse!
In an effort to turn the tide in the Allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria.

In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
A new video has just popped up, giving us a first look at some of the devastation that the awesome weapons in Bloodborne can do. The player in the footage uses a variety of weapons to slay numerous enemies and monsters. From guns, to swords, to whips, to huge maces-like weapons, watch as numerous enemies are cut down in highly entertaining ways. I didn’t see any shields in this video, but that’s okay, because the developers have said that it is best to be “aggressive” in battle, which this player definitely is. Will you be picking up Bloodborne for the PlayStation 4 when it releases on March 24?
