AOC aims to get out the vote by streaming Among Us with pokimane and HasanAbi

We are about seven months into a pandemic and just two weeks from a presidential election. At this point, surprises are a dime a dozen. So it should feel very 2020 that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is about to stream Among Us, the hit game of 2020, on Twitch alongside mega-streamer pokimane and political analyst HasanAbi.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted yesterday that she was looking for people to play the popular game with in an effort to get out the vote, noting that she’s never played before but that it looks fun.

Streamer pokimane, who has 6 million followers on Twitch and whose YouTube videos regularly see more than 1 million views each, responded to the tweet with a figurative raised hand.

HasanAbi, a very popular political commentator on Twitch, who has more than 380,000 Twitter followers, also chimed in to the conversation saying that they’re already making a lobby. It wasn’t long before Rep. Ilhan Omar raised her hand, too.

A good game of Among Us (imagine that someone mixed a fairly basic multiplayer video game with a murder mystery party) usually requires 10 players, so the other six players are still TBD. But the Verge reports that a handful of other streamers (such as DrLupo, Felicia Day, Greg Miller, James Charles, and Neekolul) also lined up to play with AOC.

According to Ocasio-Cortez, the stream is all about getting out the vote. And this isn’t the first time that she’s used video games to connect with her followers. AOC opened up her DMs to all 6.8 million of her followers back in May to let them send her an invite to their island, and she visited them.

Millennial voters (and Gen Z) skew toward backing the Biden / Harris ticket, and AOC is coming to them by getting on Twitch and streaming one of the rocket ship games of this year.

The stream starts at 9pm ET/6pm PT and can be found here.

And you can check if you’re registered to vote here.

Update 9:01pm ET: AOC hasn’t even started playing the game yet and has nearly 250,000 concurrent viewers.

Ces dernières années, les équivalents virtuels des casinos terrestres gagnent de plus en plus en popularité. Les adeptes des jeux d’argent sont attirés par le plaisir de jouer en ligne mais aussi par le plaisir de gagner. Les joueurs peuvent parier sur les jeux les plus prisés, sachant qu’il suffit d’un ordinateur et d’une connexion Internet stable.

Après avoir tapé « meilleur casino en ligne avis » et vous être bien renseigné sur l’opinion et l’experience des joueurs, la licence d’exploitation de la plateforme, les bonus et promotions, la sécurité des paiements en ligne et le service clientèle, il est temps de vous intéresser à la ludothèque du casino. Dans cet article, nous vous invitons à découvrir les différents types de jeux de casino en ligne.

En effet, les jeux proposés par le site sont un facteur déterminant. C’est pourquoi, avant de vous inscrire dans un casino en ligne, il est conseillé de jeter un coup d’œil sur sa ludothèque. Les casinos en ligne proposent la plupart des jeux qui existe dans les casinos terrestres et chacun d’entre eux a ses propres règles. Ils sont divisés en quatre grandes catégories.

Jeux de dés. Ils sont différents des autres types de jeux d’argent parce qu’ils se jouent avec des dés. Le plus populaire, c’est sans aucun doute le craps. Les règles sont simples : le joueur prend une paire de dés et parie sur le résultat final.

Roulette. La reine des jeux de hasard jouit d’un grand succès auprès des joueurs. Voici les règles de base. Elle se joue avec une roue de 37 numéros allant de 0 à 36. Le croupier tourne la roulette et la balle circule jusqu’à ce qu’elle atterrisse dans l’une des 37 poches. Le but consiste à deviner la poche.

Machines à sous. Vous pouvez choisir entre des machines à sous traditionnelles et des machines à sous vidéo 3D. L’objectif consiste à tomber sur la bonne combinaison de symboles sur les rouleaux.

Jeux de cartes. Le poker est l’un des jeux les plus connus au monde. En bref, le joueur a un jeu de cartes et la force de la main est déterminée en combinant celles qui sont affichées sur la table. Le blackjack, également connu sous le nom de 21, est un autre type de jeux de cartes qui se joue entre le croupier et les joueurs. Il se joue avec une ou plusieurs piles de cartes, dont le but est de battre le croupier.

Le nombre de titres et la qualité des jeux issus des plus grands éditeurs est un grand facteur quant au choix d’un casino en ligne fiable. Parmi les plus grands noms, vous retrouverez Betsoft, Playson, Pragmatic Play, Evolution Gaming, Relax Gaming, iSoftBet, Play’N Go… tous bien connus sur le marché et appréciés par les joueurs. Si vous désirez tester certains jeux sans vous inscrire, gratuitement, nous vous conseillons de privilégier un casino en ligne qui vous offre cette possibilité.

Les jeux de hasard ne dépendent que de la chance. Soyez patients et amusez-vous !

An October Surprise, Polimon – Political Monsters comes to Mobile

Polimon - Political Monsters Gameplay Screen Shot

…once you play for more than 15 minutes, you realize the game pokes fun at everyone across the political spectrum.

Outside The Box Software (http://www.otbsgames.com), a small Indie game studio, releases the timely satirical Turn Based RPG Polimon – Political Monsters. At first glance it may seem like a gimmick, but after just a few minutes playing it becomes apparent there’s a lot more to this genre blending game than meets the eye.

Featuring over a dozen famous and infamous U.S. politicians from the past 2 decades, Polimon allows players to take control of their favorite (or most hated) U.S. Presidential candidate. From the omnipresent Donald Trump, Joe Biden, and Bernie Sanders to fringe candidates like Kanye West. As the player’s chosen Political Monster, they will travel across the land, gaining supporters, and engaging in political battles.

The battle system parodies the classic Turn-Based RPG Trainer system while satirizing political candidates and various supporters and interest groups. “If you play the game for 5 minutes, you might get offended and send me hate mail,” says Christopher ‘Cosmo’ Evans the Lead Developer and Game Designer of Polimon at Outside The Box Software. “But once you play for more than 15 minutes, you realize the game pokes fun at everyone across the political spectrum and it also illuminates how we actually have a lot of shared interests outside of a few hot button issues.”

Polimon – Political Monsters contains over 30 hours of gameplay with a planned Online Multiplayer battle mode in the works. New Polimon will be added regularly featuring not only current politicians like ‘AOC’ but also “Legendary Polimon” such as Abraham Lincoln and Richard Nixon each with their own special movies and abilities. Polimon looks to be one of the more accessible political games to date. “Typically political games fall into two categories. They are either too esoteric requiring a near political science degree to understand or they’re too simplistic reducing the politics to whack-a-mole,” says Christopher Cosmo. “With Polimon, the idea was to create accessible and engaging gameplay that even a non-politico can do a play-through and maybe even pique their interest in politics, but also have enough depth and satire that political junkies will appreciate and have fun digging deeper.”

Polimon – Politcal Monsters is now available to download on the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon App Store.
