I love games; horrors and puzzle/strategy are my favourite genres but I enjoy playing pretty much anything. I still believe a good story is important and shouldn't play second fiddle to the multiplayer experience unless via a co-op campaign. I also enjoy watching football, supporting the mighty Liverpool, as well as drinking tea and petting my kittens.

Here we are again with another roundup of this week’s gaming news.

Double news whammy from Hoplon

The popular Brazillian developer Hoplon who are responsible for the hit game Heavy Metal Machines have made two announcements this week. The first of which was that they’ve gone and crowned their game’s first ever eSports tournament champion.

It was Kvasdopil of Russia who was eventually crowned champion and he was rewarded with a nice €4,000, with the remaining €6,000 of the prize pot being split amongst other competitors. If you wish you were in with a chance of winning some serious money from playing video games too, then there is no need to wait for another championship tournament, because Hoplon is going to be awarding players monthly based on their leaderboard performance.

The other piece of news out of the Hoplon camp is that a new arena is on its way to the game as well, named the Temple of Sacrifice. And here’s the announcement trailer for it so you can see it in all its glory:
