Alienware Ambassador’s Brianna Sonter, Ximopti and Rudeism Discuss Gaming in Isolation (COVID-19)
With some of the COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, there is still a directive to stay at home if possible in order to help stop the spread of this pandemic. So how do Twitch content creators and Alienware Ambassador’s Brianna Sonter, Ximopti and Rudeism keep busy? Let’s check out the games that they are paying and how they keeping busy at home! More importantly, it might open up some gaming doors for you!
Ximopti: “There are a few games that have been my go-to while being stuck at home. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one, for that element of comfort and relaxation whilst building your island and living out island life. Doom Eternal, is another game I can’t stop getting into, and which put forward quite the difficult challenge to save the world and kill demons. Because of that it is quite satisfying upon completion. One game that I’ve re-visited as of late, is House Flipper with their new HGTV DLC. This has been a really nice game to relax with, and there is something seriously amazing about designing a house whichever way you see fit.”
Briana Sonter, Alienware Ambassador: “I’ve been playing a lot of Fallout 76, Overwatch and Animal Crossing lately. I’m really enjoying the story of Fallout with the new Wastelanders DLC and the building in both Fallout and Animal Crossing. It keeps me entertained for hours – I get lost in the designing in these games which is great for nights when I’m entertaining myself. Other nights, Overwatch hits the spot for FPS games and teaming up with my friends. We’ve been playing Fallout and Overwatch for a while which creates a sense of community, but it’s also nice now to have Animal Crossing come into the mix too.”
Rudeism: “I’ve been craving a game that sucks me in for hours – I don’t get many opportunities to play them outside of streaming, so this was as good a time as any to catch up! I found Opus Magnum on Steam a few weeks ago, which is a puzzle game where you build alchemical engines, programming each piece to efficiently turn atoms into bigger products. It’s kinda like Factorio, except on a way smaller scale. I’m HOOKED. I love watching everything moving together in coordination and working on the ever-present task of optimisation. Man, I love programming.”
