PRESS RELEASE – December 23 2013: Scuf Gaming is delighted to announce a partnership with UMG Gaming for 2014

UMG

 

Jeff Covington, Founder of UMG speaks“Scuf Gaming are a huge supporter of the Pro Gaming scene and a Company we have been wanting to work with for a long time. SCUF controllers are used by the majority of professional gamers – they are what the community want! We have always been impressed by the quality and innovation Scuf Gaming bought to the Pro Gaming market through the addition of their features and are very excited for the year ahead!

 

Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder Scuf Gaming says; “As a Company who creates products for elite gamers, we have always kept a close relationship with key gaming event organizers and Gaming Leagues. UMG is a Company who has rapidly grown this past few years and have done so in an impressive way. This is great for the competitive gaming scene and I give full credit to their Management staff and look forward to seeing what 2014 holds!”

 

ABOUT SCUF GAMING: Until we invented the SCUF in 2010, gamers could only use compromising techniques like CLAW to play with more of their hand. Using back paddles, which mimic the front buttons, Scuf Gaming has made it possible to display more dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way. We understand the limitations of a normal controller for Professional gamers, who need to control over 20 functions whilst they’re in gameplay; making use of only 2 fingers and 2 thumbs is extremely limiting at the Top level. One size cannot fit all and will not fit all for the elite 10% of the community. It can restrict the advancement of play, the games and their enjoyment; hence why some Professional players were eventually forced to use techniques like CLAW; which can be very harmful to your hand with repetition. The paddles and trigger mechanisms that Scuf Gaming developed and patented allow each player to choose their preferred settings for gameplay and help them become the best gamer of they can be.

 

ABOUT UMG GAMING:

UMG provides LAN events throughout the United States and was formed in order to provide gamers a source for competitive events nationwide. It has since grown and expanded beyond the gaming scene to offer different services for corporate clients and all types of parties and events.

Ultimately, it came down to a nail-biting series between Orbit and Splyce, with Orbit emerging triumphant. They'll go home with $10,000 and 5,000 Pro Points per team member.

TeamSCUF started the excitement of the MLG Atlanta weekend a day early by offering open house tours to teams, affiliates, and partners. Among these esteemed colleagues were the winners of SCUF's 1 Million Twitter Followers celebration, Ralph Cortez and Scott Hansen. The winners were cheered at the door by SCUF staff who were eager to meet new members of the TeamSCUF family. Along with introductions to the entire SCUF team, the winners hand built their own personalized SCUF controllers.

Ralph and Scott were joined at SCUF Headquarters by Sundance DiGiovanni of MLG, Jay Puryear of Activision, Fnatic's Call of Duty team, staff at Dexerto, and many more. Everyone was given a full tour of the facilities by SCUF CEO Duncan Ironmonger, followed by a leisurely afternoon getting to know staff, playing shuffleboard, and enjoying a catered lunch. It was a great opportunity for members of so many different pieces of the pro gaming world to get together, share ideas, and talk about the industry that they're so passionate about.

Valentine’s Day has arrived: a day that fills some with warm, gooey feelings and others with unspeakable dread. At TeamSCUF, however, we believe that any excuse to sit down and play a game with the one you love (or the one you have a big crush on) is a good excuse. With that in mind, we’ve developed a short list of some of the best games for couples.

best games for couples

LittleBigPlanet


Probably the friendliest game on this list, the LittleBigPlanet series has been charming people for years, and playing alongside someone special to you offers a unique combination of working together and head-to-head competition. And that’s to say nothing of the idea of creating a level of your own and seeing how well your partner does against your puzzles and traps.

Mortal Kombat


If LittleBigPlanet is the friendliest game on this list, then Mortal Kombat might be the least friendly. Great for the competitive couple, this classic fighting franchise takes the whole “you stole my heart” idea to a very literal level. Show off your bone-splintering moves to (and against) your sweetheart, but try to remember: it’s just a game! It's just a game until your sweetie throws you into a pit of spikes, that is.

Overwatch


Is there really anything more romantic than someone who will play Support for you? Fast and fun, Overwatch is perfect for almost anyone. With a massive cast of characters and roles, everyone has a chance at winning Player Of The Game: particularly when you’re playing alongside someone who cares enough to give you the heal at the right time, or just plain stay on the payload!

best games for couples

Borderlands


There is nothing quite as satisfying as roaming the countryside, fighting insane bad guys and collecting loot and incredible guns along the way. And if you can do it with someone to watch your back? Even better. The Borderlands series has been providing explosive combat and laughs for years, and its co-op mode is one of the best there! Just try to avoid fights over who gets what loot and you should be fine.

Battleblock Theater


Speaking of laughs, Battleblock Theater is another of those games that are perfect for some challenging but light-hearted fun with a loved one. With all its puzzles and hurdles to overcome, cooperation is the name of the game! Work together with your partner to uncover all the mysteries and humor of Hatty Hattington or challenge each other with Battleblock Theater’s excellent level editor!

Do you have a game you can't get enough of with your loved one? Let us know what you think are some of the best games for couples.
