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 6, Jamie and Jim serve up some heated action in “Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash” on the Nintendo Wii U! While they don’t know much about the game or tennis in general, this back-and-forth battle will end with one of them having to wax their legs!

Words like “deuce” and “love” might not mean much to either of them, but the word “pain” certainly does!

Find out who will end up with silky smooth legs, and come back for the follow-up video on Thursday!

Jamie fulfills his punishment for his loss in “Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash” with a visit to “Jim’s Day Spa and Waxing Emporium,” home of the worst waxer in all of NEPA, in this hair-ripping follow-up to Tuesday’s video!

Watch as Jamie’s once hairy legs become smooth as a baby’s bottom – well, as smooth as Jim could get them anyway.
