New video-game league seeks mass appeal

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.--To Kat Hunter, it was a no-brainer to make Vanessa Arteaga the very first draft pick for a new pro video-game league.

"Vanessa is a guaranteed win," said Hunter, general manager of San Francisco's team in the new Championship Gaming Series league. Hunter made the first selection in the inaugural player draft, which took place Tuesday night at the Playboy Mansion here.

Each team has a general manager and 10 players. Five will play Counter-Strike: Source; two--one male and one female--will play Dead or Alive 4; two on Project Gotham Racing 3; and one on FIFA '07.
I like this. It makes gaming a team experience. And a female is necessary in the team, so it's just as good in spreading the games across genders.

And a manager. w00t. That's pretty cool. I like it. <3

Too bad this is like the 3rd major gaming league. But it's gonna be broadcast on TV, which is awesome! =D

I afraid you will have to stop eating pilgrims if that's ever to happen...body parts make such poor spectators!

That they do...but they don't pay to come again! Not to mention the sorting and the freight to be able to claim plausible reassembly!
