CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newegg Commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEGG), a global e-commerce leader for technology products, today announced new episodes are available on YouTube for “The Gamer Lounge,” Newegg’s weekly hit short-form reality-competition series featuring contestants vying to win a video game-based competition.
“The Gamer Lounge” features a revolving roster of over 30 top gaming influencers who have a combined 7 million followers on social media platforms. Each episode showcases a popular video game from a leading publisher.
Unique for a gaming competition, some episodes feature a single-player game and each contestant must take a turn trying to achieve an outcome or thwarting the next player who will be resuming that same game.
In this week’s episode, participants battle in the popular PlayStation®5 game Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered following the new Spider-Man animated film release, the No. 1 box office movie in North America last weekend. However, true to the nature of “The Gamer Lounge,” where unique challenges elevate the competition, contestants face an added twist. The TV is flipped vertically, as an homage to Spider-Man’s signature upside-down pose when web dangling. Some contestants, in an attempt to adapt to the vertically reversed controls, sit upside down on a sofa.
