Lara Croft could have possibly been in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, if its release date was later

Lara Croft could have possibly been in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, if its release date was later Crystal Dynamics' Global Brand Director, Karl Stewart, recently did a question and answer session where he discusses various things about Lara Croft. Importantly enough, SuperBot had approached Crystal Dynamics about putting their character in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

LaraRocks2: Will Lara ever be featured in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale?

Karl Steward: With regards to the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale question. We love what the guys and girls over at Sony have achieved with ASBR, they even approached us about the possibility of including Lara. But to be honest to us it all boiled down to timing. We really set out to create a reboot where the first time you experienced playing as Lara Croft it was in our game on March 5th and nowhere else. We’ll see what happens in the future.

If PlayStation All-Stars' release was a few months later, after Tomb Raider 9's it's possible we would have seen Lara Croft in the game.

Apex tournament series will be returning next year - Jonathan Lugo talks Apex 2013 turn out, thefts and more

Apex tournament series will be returning next year - Jonathan Lugo talks Apex 2013 turn out, thefts and more We here at EventHubs recently conducted an interview with Jonathan "Alex 'LXDScourge' Strife" Lugo of the Apex tournament series to discuss a few topics pertaining to the largest Super Smash Brothers event in the nation. Alex discusses the thefts that occurred at Apex 2013, the chances of the tournament returning next year and more.

Check out our interview below.

EH: We’ve heard that there were some unfortunate thefts that occurred over at Apex 2013. If you’re comfortable saying so, what exactly happened at the event and what items were stolen?

Lugo: During the event several pieces of equipment were stolen from the Super Smash Bros. Section. Over the course of the event I personally lost several Nintendo Wiis, copies of Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl, and many other electronic equipment. Sponsored equipment was stolen as well. Those we had to personally replace out of our own funds. That, combined with our personal loses made us lose a few thousand dollars worth of equipment.

EH: There is word that Apex will not be returning next year for its annual tournament; is this a definitive decision? What actions need to be taken in order for the event to run once again?

Lugo: We'll be working hard to make sure next year happens, in fact we're already starting to plan. The event is something the team enjoy's doing so we wanted to make it happen regardless. So you can say that Apex will return. We do have some adjustments to make such as a new venue, purchasing more equipment, etc. but that is something that we will handle as we go along. And one thing is certain we'll be looking for some tighter security. It's best to approach in this situation by moving on and work to do all we can to provide the best experience possible.

Eduardo 'PR Balrog' Perez discusses his plans to win Evo 2013, training regimen, origins of his name and more

Eduardo 'PR Balrog' Perez discusses his plans to win Evo 2013, training regimen, origins of his name and more TechZwn recently conducted an interview with Evil Geniuses' Eduardo 'PR Balrog' Perez in which he talks on a wide variety of subjects. Eduardo is dedicated to his training as he aims to win Evo 2013 and divulges a bit of insight on his training regimen.

You can check out a bit from TechZwn's article below.

Practice for a pro like Perez-Frangie means a lot of time spent gaming each day. “A typical day for me would be waking up, taking a shower, maybe doing some house chores, and then setting up the stream to start playing for six to ten hours,” he says. “Usually when I’m not streaming I just practice in training mode.”

Online play is a staple in Perez-Frangie’s training routine, but he has warned his followers to take online play with a grain of salt. “The thing about fighters online is that it will never be perfect because the timing online is completely different than playing offline. The fact that the internet in America is not that fast and we are all so spread out makes it really hard for a top player to take it seriously. Fighters are based on really fast reactions and combos that require strict timing and online makes most of that impossible.”

Interestingly enough, Eduardo discusses the origins of the "PR Balrog" handle and admits he wishes people would address him by his real name as he didn't assign the surname himself.

In addition to being the biggest accomplishment of his career, a win at the EVO championships might give Perez-Frangie the chance to change his current handle. “I wish people would call me by my name, or at least by Eduardo Perez, instead of PR Balrog since I actually didn’t give myself that name—Especially now that I don’t even play Balrog anymore.” That handle was given to him when he became the first player to win a major Street Fighter tournament using the Balrog character. Players, fans, and spectators knew little about Perez-Frangie except that he was Puerto Rican and played using Balrog. The PR Balrog name has stuck since.

Be sure to check out the rest of the interview as it retains quite a bit more interesting information.
