How To Make Dota 2 eSports Even Better

I love Dota 2. I love playing it, and I love watching live tournaments – online. However, something has started to bother me. While some teams get invited, they perform poorly. Exemplified by the victory of Team OG today, a new team which showed every directly invited team who’s boss. Do we really need direct invites anymore? If you’re like me, you just saw Team OG take a convincing victory over Team Secret in the final of the Frankfurt Major, taking 1.1 million dollar of prize money from the 3 million dollar prize pool. Team OG were the underdogs, they...

MOVIE REVIEW: 13 Assassins

Starring: A lot of Japanese actors I don’t know Director: Takashi Miike Genre: Action/ Historic Drama Runtime: 141 minutes I’ve seen, prior to this one, exactly 1 other film by Takashi Miike. I once  went through a bargain bin and found ‘Ichi The Killer’. Intrigued by the horrible clichéd title, I bought it and watched it. What I saw was one of the most insanely sadistic movies ever. And I loved it. Now this. 13 Assassins takes place in 1844 Japan. It tells a fictional story, with some historical elements as a baseline. It is about the sadistic half-brother of...
