It’s safe to say that MiddleEasy as we know it would not be around if Halo didn’t exist. In fact, I’m sure if you asked Zeus, Michihiro Omigawa and Halo probably have as much to do with the creation and development of MiddleEasy as any other source of inspiration, and it all started in a poo stained apartment in Arizona that featured stadium seating and Efrain Escudaro across the hall. Yep, Zeus met the majority of the early players in MiddleEasy while consistently losing in Halo. True story. Ask OB.
Now worlds are colliding and MMA fighters are losing as much as Zeus back in the day (he’s better now), in this challenge of Gamers vs Fighters: Halo Reach for charity edition brought to the world by Gammao. The Gamers gathered in North Carolina in a gaming (zone?) called RUaGamer, pronounced: are yoo a gay-mer. But I like to pronounce it Hoo-a gamer. In honor of Shogun and Marcos. Gary LaPlante would be proud. The fighters were stationed in New York so they wouldn’t unplug the controllers or press the reset button.
Watch rounds one and two of the rather nasty beat down by the pro nerds. Come on Varner, I thought you were a gamer? Or is it just Call of Doody you play?
