I have to admit, I AM missing my gaming buddy…just a little!?

Grade Eight Gamer

Ironham just started back to school so he won’t be able to join us for our 11am timeslot… and he’s not alone apparently! Schools have begun to grind back into action, some IRL, other just keeping things virtual. I’m thinking of trying out our TechBandits and GameBandits streams as a after-school thangs… around 3:30 or 4pm moving forward?

How are you all feeling about school? Is it better going back after all this time away? Do you prefer the home based schooling, or are you a in-person scholar all the way? I’d love to hear how it’s going and how you’re feeling about going or being back!

Fall Guys just landed at the top of the summer gaming heap!

But as with any new game… it doesn’t take long for the cheaters to start running amok!Sounds like the plan is to add “Easy Anti-Cheat” which is the same system used by Fortnite!

I will not cheat…

I always love to find out how companies that make games like these got started… these folks were in business from university!  Check out their website to read their history and take a look at the kind of jobs they have available…you never know!

Among Us

Another game racing up the charts is space based, team mystery game “Among Us”… they just had a record breaking 1.5 million players on their servers at the same time!

For those of you not familiar with the game and for those who want to laugh knowingly…here’s Among Us in a Nutshell!

This is a big deal for a little company of three people with a very short history of games including Henry Stickmin … how could you plan for sudden success like this!?

Did you watch any of the concerts or movie trailers they’ve presented in-game so far? Do you like this idea? Have a look at what they’ve done thus far, I gotta say, Baz I were blown away!
