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 5, Jim and Jamie play as DC Comics characters in “Injustice: Gods Among Us” on the PlayStation 4. They must fight to the death, best of three, in an effort to avoid an embarrassing and mildly dangerous punishment: the condom challenge!

See who will be stuck experimenting with a water-filled condom on his head in the funny follow-up video this Thursday!

Jim has to partake in the humiliating, freezing cold “condom challenge” after losing an intense battle in “Injustice: Gods Among Us” to Jamie. Watch him take on countless liquid-filled condoms all night long in an effort to trap him in a condom bubble! We think it was 37 (in a row?)!

Never has there been so much liquid in so many condoms (and so many innuendos) all in the same night!

Don’t try this at home!
