Gods and Monsters is a large Comic Book shop located in Artegon (Suite E8, 5250 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819. One one visit, I found the back of the Store converted into An MVG Tournament arena featuring Pot Bonuses, High Octane Players, HD Live-Streams, food and drinks.
This event followed the CEO rulesets for each game.This seemed to be an Olympic style multiplayer competition with announcer giving commentary for onlookers. To be quite honest I had no idea what was happening as I watched the big screen. Having never played any of these video games, I couldn't tell who was fight in who and why.
Photographers took photos of the competitors, action. Several people asked y take photos over my shoulder of the sketch in progress. The event was referred to as "Energy" which provides a bold take on the "Spirit Bomb," an iconic phenomena from the Dragon Ball Z series, in which Hero "Goku," calls for energy from the entire planet, in order to deal a a catastrophic, world-ending, blow to his enemy.
As a viewer, you'll have the chance to "Lend Your Energy" to your favorite player. In return, the player that generates the most "energy" will be given the effect of "Powering Up." This element, with the addition of other Easter eggs, we believe will enhance the experience by closing the gap between players and viewers. Although a bit confusing for me, it was all quite exciting.
