Neowin interviews Fatal1ty at CES

Shortly before CES, Larry (DirtyLarry) decides to check if we could do an interview with Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel, the most successful professional gamer. We talk about how it all began in his dads pool hall through how he almost was stuck washing dishes the rest of his life. The night before we had a chance encounter with John at a pre-CES event, where Frank fought in several treacherous games of billiards, not only giving John a run for his money, but becoming victorious as well. Below is the video interview with Fatal1ty, and more videos coming soon!

*Sorry for audio, it was very loud there and I did not have an external mic, but did the best with limited resources I have to clean it up

bah, Quake 3 was a long time ago

Aren't people over him yet?

No...and neither are the companies with that stupid looking Fatal1ty logo. I for one will not buy into it and will never own something with Fatal1ty...he doesn't know crap about the electronics behind it. Have to hand it to him though...anyone that can make a nice boatload of money whoring out their screen name and playing video games without a social life gets props.

Well, the Creative Fatal1ty headset is actually very good. It's only $50 for a well built, comfortable gaming headset, with a detachable boom microphone and inline volume controls.

I don't buy into the other overpriced stuff, though.

They must have hired the Belkin employee to manage their marketing

No, it is genuinely a great headset.

I mean, I could post about the crappy-thin scissor keyboard, crappier over-featured Razor mouse(which he doesn't even use), and the way overpriced sound cards with his stupid logo. I won't even go into his signature motherboard, highly unstable chipset with overkilled DIMM slots.

But when it comes to the headset, it's actually just that damn good. You should really check it out.

I emailed him probably 8 years ago and told him he wouldn't OWN people on a console like he did on a pc. I doubt he will ever make it to any championships when it comes to consoles. One trick pony....

What games are you playing?
Right now I'm playing sadflkjasdlfkjasldkfjaslkfdj and sadfkljasdlfkjasldkfj and askdfjalskdfjlaskdfjlaskdjf.

:P

Just kidding, nice work guys.

Yea, one thing learned from this experience: microphone is a must! Other videos on the way are pretty good though, that just happened to be in a loud area
