You can see a lot of unusual things on Twtich beyond people playing videogames, whether it's IRL streams of people's lives or variety shows. You can also, if you tune in right now, watch a rock paper scissors championship.

It's being hosted by Beyond the Summit (opens in new tab), who typically bring you "global coverage of E-sports events." There's a full team of commentators involved, and I have just heard them describe this "the coveted rock papers scissors championship" as "a savage tournament."

It's real, it's sponsored by Monster energy drinks, and you can watch it on Twitch right here (opens in new tab).

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
