Community roundup #1: A new feature from GSRR

Over the years, Geek Sleep Rinse Repeat have had a lot of love, shares and general community goodness from other content creators in the gaming space. As part of that community, we want to make sure we’re giving back.

Our community roundup is a new feature, that aims to share out some of the great content we have read in games over the last week. So if you you find something that you think is really great, be it a review, guide or even just a thought piece, ping it over to @GSRR_UK.

We love this article because it addresses the positive impact that video games can have on peoples lives. The news is full of pieces talking about how video games can be bad for your mental health, and the subject of positivity gets lost.

I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this one, but it’s a brilliant idea for a series. Written by @gamergalexe, this one should resonate with any gamer out there.

Spellbreak impressions

Lastly, I thought I’d include one from our resident Youtuber and editor @HudsonGamingUK. Spellbreak is a beautiful, relentless magic based Battle Royale game. I tried it a few times and just couldn’t get the hang of it, Will, on the other hand, had some better luck.
