The scream

It should be clear by now that I’m a huge fan of shoutcasters. They can honestly make or break my interest in a game. I love when shout casters get sponsorship/partnership deals, and it appears that two of our local boys have done just that.

Ph4tso and Harr Fast Productions are two South African shoutcasters for Battlefield. Rumour has it (hopefully confirmed this week) that they have entered into a partnership with Asus. This could help to grow the local Battlefield eSports scene. I’m definitely keen for it – sometimes it seems as if the only local eSport with any following is Dota 2! These guys will add variety to the mix, and I’m excited to see what they can do.

You can check out Ph4tso on twitter and YouTube. You can check out his shout casting skills in this video from the DGC:

Harr Fast Productions can be found on Facebook, twitter and YouTube. Here is a video he put together about a future Battlefield pro

It’s so great to see big brands getting behind eSports, and particularly our local shoutcasters. This would certainly help raise the profile of Battlefield in South Africa, and is well timed with the upcoming release of Battlefield 4 – let’s hope the grapevine is correct.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

    Eish, dat header

  • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

    Little known fact: The Ghostface mask from Scream was based on The Scream painting by Edvard Munch

    • John’s (JJ’s) Steaming backlog

      I thought this was common knowledge

      • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

        Lol, well I didn’t know it untill recently :P

        • John’s (JJ’s) Steaming backlog

          Hehe. Okay.
          You need to live up to your name, and give us weird videos (that I won’t watch)

          • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

            But it’s no fun posting videos if no one watches them

          • John’s (JJ’s) Steaming backlog

            There’s always one person who takes the plunge…

          • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

            But then you need to be tactful, build up a story and have them follow the link at their own will. Kinda like what Darryn did with that Meatspin, he played on the readers own curiosity. I can never top that one, it was pure genius!

    • Matthew Holliday

      I always found Edvard Munch overated.
      generally found that whole time period of expressionism overated.

    Always great too see locals representing eSports. Good luck too Ph4tso and Harr Fast and hope it gets confirmed.

    All that JT-Rat footage is from the DGC finals.

  • Alpha-Renji

    That is one sexy Johnny xD

    • Harr Fast

      It’s thanks to all the fans/viewers, and hard work from Bad Robot that sponsorships like this happen. I love you all!
