With the LCS Summer Split Finals coming to Detroit MI in just a few short weeks, we talk with caster Azael about what we should expect from the competition. We’re big fans of lists at Checkpoint XP and any chance we get to make ‘em or break ‘em, we take. On today’s show we bring you a list from GameSpot of the most influential games of the 21st Century, the games that changed everything! Will it pass the Checkpoint? We also talk about how cheesy and ‘cringe’ some esports moments can be. Is that really a bad thing though? Should esports give up entirely on trying to market itself the way sports does in the mainstream or lean into the fact that we’re all nerds and this is just what we do. Plus, is the current model of video game development sustainable long time? And if it isn’t how long until the bubble pops?
