/ Checkpoint / Games & Hobbies / Video Games / Melbourne Esports Open is coming!


This week on the show, it’s a big weekend coming up here in Melbourne, Australia… at Rod Laver Arena on September 1st and 2nd it’s the first ever Melbourne Esports Open! Featuring a grand stage with some big finals, video game tournaments you can enter yourself plus a whole lot of other exciting things going on over the weekend.

Join Luke, Elliot, Cam and special guest Jack as they discuss the ins and outs of Esports. Like… what even is an esport? What makes the idea of watching other people play video games in this context so appealing? What games suit esports compared to others that definitely don’t? Could we see esports right up there with the other biggest sports in the world at events like the Olympic games? Is the inclusion of Fortnite as controversial as Cam and Elliot think? We also run through what you can expect from the MEO.
