WCG Ultimate Gamer
The other day I was watching that show "WCG Ultimate Gamer" on the SyFy network. I haven't seen much of it because, frankly, I have better things to do with my time. But from what I saw the competitors on that show were mediocre at best. It felt so staged, like any other bad reality show. One of the parts I saw involved some sort of an elimination challenge where two of the competitors had to pick partners and then battle it out in a game of Bad Company 2. One of the competitors, I think his name was Yaz, is supposed to be some sort of badass at FPS games. Near as I could tell though he only did marginally better than the others. And one of the people on the other team was a "rhythm games specialist, i.e Rock Band and DDR...", if that tells you anything at all. At the end of the match the score was 14-15. That isn't all that unlikely but, that isn't the only time I've seen one of the competitions in that show end up with a 1 point spread. The show reeks of BS but, I guess I could be wrong.
