YouthX Campus Game Fest shows why values in sports and E-sports are “all the same”

The dust has settled in what has been a successful outing for National Youth Council (NYC)’s YOUTHX Weekend Festival that occurred during 3 and 4 August 2019. A 60,000 strong crowd turned up to support what was the culmination of a month-long celebration of youth aspirations and talents, attending highlights like the Super 24 Dance Competition, performances for SHINE and also newcomer Campus Game Fest.

Will “Heroes of the Storm” Weather The Storm?

We couldn’t have been the only ones breathing out sighs of disappointment when Blizzard announced that they’ve officially cancelled “Starcraft: Ghost” last year. At least when it was placed on indefinite hold back in 2006, we had a novel to tide us over for Blizzard’s Starcraft third-person shooter (it is as cool as it sounds). Well, sigh no more!
