The Old-Schooled League Season 1 Has Begun

After a long Hiatus I am proud to announce that Old-Schooled is once again returning in the form of the Old-Schooled league. The Old-Schooled section of the site has been completely revamped including the new League Standings page with a list of all the current players in the league, the challenges they will be facing, and what their performance was after their trials. I would like to thank everyone who has signed up and I hope you we’ll get even more signups now that the league has started. To learn more about the league head over to the Old-Schooled page.
Adam Vigilante

Adam Vigilante First Player to Accept the Challenge

For the very first trial please we have Adam Vigilante scheduled for 22Sep2014. Adam’s last Old-Schooled was on September 3rd, 2011 for the 5th tournament where he took for 4th place after winning in Gunstar Heroes, Ms. Pac-Man, and Spy vs. Spy. However loses to Joshua Westra in Final Fight 3 and Silver Surfer put him into a third-placing matchup where he substituted out with David Begley to complete the last match of that tournament.  It’s been three years since then. Can Adam break past the semi-final and make it all the way to the final in the Expert round? Tune in to twitch.tv September 22nd at 6PM to find out.

Awesomenauts 100+ Followers Celebration & Replays

gnaw_murder_by_esai2005-d7etazrFor those of you who have been watching my Twitch.tv channel know, the channel has recently reached the 100 follower milestone! And to celebrate the occasion I’m organizing a small giveaway for everyone who’s loyally been watching the channel everyday. So here’s how it works.

1) Watch a broadcast on my channel from May 18th to May 23

2) During each broadcast on my channel at a random time in the middle of the show I’ll take down the names of everyone on the viewer list who is a follower.

3) These names will be put into a drawing for a giveaway on May 23rd during Awesomenauts after Dark.

4) There will be five prizes given away on May 23rd, an Awesomenauts skin from the Steam store of the viewer’s choice.

5) One prize maximum per twitch.tv/steam account allowed

There are five prizes of course to represent each day of the week, but it doesn’t matter which day of the week you watch to get in on the drawing. Good luck everyone.

Also, if you would like to send in replays for Awesomenauts, put them up on dropbox and send an email to furluge@furluge.com with “Awesomenauts Replay” in the subject line. Replays will generally be used on friday. Also if you would be interested in broadcasting live matches for the show let me know, since spectating these is possible.

Dust: An Elysian Tail Live Playthrough

So once again I’ve decided to do another live playthrough of a game I found on Steam. I know it’s been on Xbox for a very long time but, well, I think we can all agree that that doesn’t count. Steam’s where it matters. Tune in Tuesday – Thursday on my Twitch.tv channel for more in the continuing saga of this beautiful side-scroller.

Farcry 3 Blood Dragon

I’ve started doing a full play through of Farcry 3 Blood Dragon on my live stream at Twitch.tv M-F and sometimes Sunday at 8pm. Below is a playlist with an archive of all the broadcasts done so far. Remember you can always see if I’m online via the status to the right or by checking out my twitter feed.
