Update: Looks like it's over. VOD embedded above.

Yesterday, James and I discussed our time with SOS (opens in new tab), a 16-player survival game which encourages loose alliances and betrayals, and where half the goal is to entertain viewers. This morning, it released on Steam Early Access (opens in new tab)—and now Snoop Dogg is streaming it (opens in new tab) on behalf of developers Outpost Games.

You can watch Snoop's stream on Twitch above, or on Hero, where you can react with emojis (opens in new tab). It's exactly what you'd expect. Most impressive is how Snoop is able to play with one hand:

SOS is $30 on Steam for the base game, and there are a couple of more expensive packs that include in-game clothes and emotes. I'm still debating whether or not I like it, but sure, I'll watch Snoop Dogg play it for now.

Update: Some sick no-hands play below. (Yes, he's obviously not steering, but whatever.)

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
