Major League Gaming Championships Kick Off Today!

Posted Fri Aug 24, 2012 at 09:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Check out the best of the best competing in ‘StarCraft II,’ ‘League of Legends,’ ‘Mortal Kombat’ and ‘Soul Calibur V.’

Major League Gaming is about to kick off its biggest championship weekend ever. Some of the world’s best will be coming together to compete in their game of choice, and earn themselves not only the title of champion, but a decent sized chunk of change too – always a nice motivator.

Things start at 5:00pm Eastern with pregame shows, after which you’ll be able to watch ‘League of Legends’ and ‘StarCraft II’ as well as ‘Soul Calibur V.’ ‘Mortal Kombat’ fans will have to wait until tomorrow to check out their game of choice, and after the finals for both, MLG will be hosting expos for both ‘Virtua Fighter 5’ and ‘Skullgirls.’

The event is free to watch, but you can access higher quality streams, video-on-demand, DVR style functionality and more for $14.99.
