ENDEMOL SHINE and BLAMMO joining forces (61 comments)
Posted by Ins0mnia @ 04:35 CDT, 29 April 2015 - iMsg
The two media companies ENDEMOL SHINE and BLAMMO are going to research the possibilities of eSports. They find each other the perfect partners because Endemol has a wide history of media while Blammo Media has 14 years of experience in gaming media. Also Blammo Events is the host of the Firstlook event in the Benelux every year.

The companies sees financial opportunities as since eSports is seeing a massive growth the past few years. With more than 27 million people watching League of Legends championships live it is comparable with sports such as ice hockey and swimming.

Endemol was founded in 1994 and is well known from TV productions such as Fox Sports, Wheel of Fortune, The Voice or Big Brother. They sold their programs to more then 130 countries and works with more then 300 broadcasters.

Their business covers development, production, marketing, distribution, franchise management and multi-platform initiatives including digital video, gaming and apps. So them investigating in eSports could be a big deal.

However, it's not their first time that they looked at eSports, back in 2005 they had a pilot program named: "Totally Esports" (with Netherlands Lauke), even though this was a small succes, Endemol felt it was a bit to early to jump into the world of eSports and cancelled the TV program.

There is an official press release, however that is in Dutch.

Quake is unbanned from Germany (97 comments)
Posted by Ins0mnia @ 13:40 CST, 1 December 2011 - iMsg
Goodnews everyone, according to Germany Der Spiegel, you can finally buy and play Quake (World) in Germany. After 15 years the Germans and their watch dog ''Bundesprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien'' decided that Quake shouldn't be on the ban list because they don't find the game realistic anymore. Which is pretty reasonable after 15 years.

Realistic Commodore 64 games such as Rambo and River Raid are still on the ban list.

Posted by Ins0mnia @ 15:34 CDT, 28 June 2011 - iMsg
Stealing virtual items in games such as World of WarCraft, TeamFortress 2, Runescape etc. etc. etc... is now a crime in the Netherlands, this has been stated by the judge in the Supreme Court. In 2008, a 13-year-old boy was threatened with physical violence with a knife from one of his friends unless he handed over some items in RuneScape. The Supreme Court stated that virtual items are of an economical value, so it's a crime when you steal it.

The suspect has been issued a 160 hour forced labor penality with a 4 month conditional juvenile detention. The accused appealed, how ever a year later the Supreme Court stated the same verdict.

So what's the catch? Well for a whopping 129 euros you can join this LAN. See below for exact details from what you will expect.

The LAN will be live held on the weekend of February 20th to 22nd 2009. Reservations will open in approximately 1 or 2 weeks from now.

Yesterday in the Theater Factory, Amsterdam the Dutch World Cyber Games Qualifiers finals has been played. This during the Firstlook game exhibition. The results are known and these people will go to Germany to fight for the honor and of course the big bucks.

All the games has been played except for Counter-Strike, this because DCC-Gaming didn't show up for the ECG. So Blammo (the host of WCG NL) decided not to hold a CS 1.6 qualifier this year.

ESReality re-discovers Z4muz, how is he? (235 comments)
Posted by Ins0mnia @ 14:04 CDT, 15 September 2008 - iMsg
Sweden has raised one of the biggest and best Quake 3 Quake players of all time. There for everyone knows the old gamers joke: "If you are from Sweden, your are automatically a good FPS player". This was also a valid rule for the Arena legend Sweden Alexander 'Z4muZ' Ihrfors. How ever, like a lot of former eSports players, a few years ago Z4muZ changed his shaft for a pack of cards. So these days you might find him online or in a casino for poker.

Z4muZ is becoming a man, currently 22 years old and lives together with his girlfriend in a nice apartment in Avesta, Sweden. So he's living a good life out there in the cold.

For us a good reason to interview Z4muZ. Just to see how he is, what he does and what he loves.

Which is of course a disappointment for anyone.

The invites are now live on #EuroCup (QuakeNet).

ClanBase welcomes Greece (17 comments)
Posted by Ins0mnia @ 11:43 CDT, 2 September 2008 - iMsg
ClanBase ClanBase announced today that they have launched a separate division especially for Greece Greece. This to encourage a lower entery bar for new users from Greece but also to localise more with new cups and ladders.

Denmark Mads 'MadUSA' Ehrhardt from GGL ClanBase said:
"We are excited to being able to bring news in local language to some of the countries that are not that strong in the English language. Content in local language always reach further than non-native language news, and also caters to a more local audience. I am excited about this new set up and expect there will be more to come."
It's not the first time that ClanBase separated divisions, a few years ago they launched ClanBase Italy for an experiment which was successfully enough to continue this tradition with Greece.
