You guys may not know this about me, but I love being on vacation. I’m a huge travel guy, and I’ll take every opportunity I can get to escape my own four walls and see the world. I typically bring my Nintendo Switch with me wherever I go, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss some of my other favorite PC and console games while I’m on the road (or on an island).
Today, AIC Hotels and HyperX seem to have launched a solution for gamers like me who are on the go and find themselves needing a fix.
As the landscape of gaming, music, and entertainment continue to rapidly become one single universal experience, AIC Hotel Group, the experiential hospitality group housing influential brands and offering unmatched vacation experiences, partners with HyperX™, the gaming division of HP Inc. and top choice of high-performance gaming peripherals, to introduce HyperX Gaming Lounge — the first-ever resort HyperX gaming lounge for leisure travelers in the Mexican Caribbean.

I remember being a kid and absolutely losing my mind when I stayed at a hotel and it had some sort of game room or arcade nearby. One year on New Years Eve, my family went away to some nice mountain resort – and I found an Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 arcade cabinet within a few hours of being there. I probably burnt all of my parent’s cash intended for tipping bartenders and housekeepers on that goddamn thing.
Now, gamers of all ages can get away from their getaway for a little bit while they’re in sunny Riviera Maya and game. You absolutely love to see it.
I guess it’s time to book my next vacation…
