Bro Cave: @Stafunoob
This week’s bro cave comes to us from Tim a.k.a. @Stafunoob, who has a clean dual monitor setup with a generous helping of blue LEDs.
How’s it going everyone? I am a virgin to this Bro Cave thing, so please be gentle on me… It is my first time, after all. My name is Tim, and I live in a lovely city called Butler, about 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh. When I’m not at the public pool that I manage for 60 hours of my week or at the bar drinking away my stress, I spend my time here gaming AND drinking away my stress (Yuengling is my beer of choice for all of you that live in the area).
This build has been about a year in process due to unforeseen bills/sheer laziness, but today I finally have it right where I want it to be (finally got my 670!). I’ve generally been doing some sort of PC gaming all my life. I’ve had my consoles while growing up, but most of my gaming enjoyment has come from the PC, whether it be the original Unreal Tournament (I beat the shit out of those bots), the original Deus Ex, the entire Star Wars: Jedi Knight series, or discovering competitive online gaming through Day of Defeat 1.3. And these are all games I still go back to on a regular basis! Lately, I’ve been sinking my teeth into Team Fortress 2 and Blacklight: Retribution (free-to-play or bust!).
