Happy Saturday everyone. I hope that you all are enjoying the end of another Summer month. I am quite tired of the amount of bugs munching on me during every walk I take with my dog. But it's been a solid month for gaming with some bangers dropping the past few weeks and MultiVersus gaining plenty of attention as well.
We are also a less than a week away form Evo! Our very own TJ Denzer will be competing at the event and we will have plenty to talk about on Wide World of Electronic Sports so stay tuned. Alright, let's jump into Weekend Discussion, shall we?
In Case You Missed It....
One thing taking the gaming community by storm and even our own staff has been MultiVersus! With the open beta officially under way and more time spent with the characters, things have started to get interesting as certain characters are already getting nerfed in early patches and certain strategies are being discovered by members of he FGC and Smash communities.
We have plenty of content if you are looking to break into the new game as well. Check out the tutorial video below:
Myself and the other co-hosts on Wide World of Electronic Sports has plenty to say about the new game and it's potential to make waves.

Which Zelda game do you think your fav pro wrestler is playing? I think The Rock would be into Ocarina of Time.

Luke is looking kinda nasty in SF6. Hope we get a new character reveal at EVO.
Saw one of the attendees getting a perfect win with Luke and asked them to do it again so I could capture it #JapanExpo2022— Matthew Edwards (@TheStreetWriter) July 14, 2022
Luke is definitely from the TikTok generation :joy:
I’m now wondering what the other perfect win animations look like :thinking_face: pic.twitter.com/oKWn1erbYy

Apparently, new things have been discovered in Nier: Automata.
Someone randomly posted a video on the Nier Automata subreddit showing they found a secret room in the Copied City. So far no one else has worked out how they managed to make this secret door appear. Literally 1 person on earth has accessed this room and we are uttered mind blown pic.twitter.com/g7W4JxiNDg— Lance McDonald (@manfightdragon) July 25, 2022
