NEPA GAMING CHALLENGE: ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ and paintball pain
Jamie Nelson, proprietor of 1Up Games in Forty Fort and lifelong video game collector, and Jim Loomis, founder of Go Left! Records in Edwardsville, are turning the “Let’s Play” video concept on its head! Part vlog, part “Jackass,” and part “Impractical Jokers,” these two friends with a passion for gaming and craft beer are putting their skills, egos, and humility on the line each week as they challenge each other – and possibly a few guests – to contests of ability and hand-eye coordination in various video games across different consoles, enjoying some libations along the way. Will their skills increase or decrease in their lust for power? Who knows? Who cares? They certainly don’t – it was their idea!
The catch is that the loser of each battle must be punished! The punishment will be agreed upon by the combatants themselves and vary each week – and they will not go easy on each other. The follow-up video will be posted on Thursdays so further enjoyment can be garnered from their humiliation.
To the victor go the spoils (while the defeated loses their dignity) in the NEPA Gaming Challenge!
In Episode 3, Jamie and Jim play the 12th release in the “Call of Duty” franchise, “Black Ops III.” Watch as they try to evade the latest punishment: getting lit up by a paintball gun manned by the winner!
Jim sucks it up and takes his punishment like a man (well, almost) and feels the wrath of countless paintballs hitting him at approximately 200 mph at a distance of only 50 feet as the consequence for his loss to Jamie in “Call of Duty: Black Ops III.” Watch as Jamie relentlessly satisfies his itchy trigger finger and laughs until he cries as Jim simply cries in agony in this hilarious follow-up!
