Yesterday, The Slug attended one of the final rounds of CounterStrike competition at the first-ever World Series of Video Games at Chelsea Piers. We watched some extreme — and by extreme we mean screamy — action between Team 3D and Fnatic, although Alternate Attax was ultimately crowned first-prize winner and given a $50,000 check. (Yes, $50,000 for playing a video game!) The Slug also had a chat with , , who's like the Michael Jordan of professional gaming. Look for our asap story all about this emerging sport in the near future. (Yes, we said sport.)
