When Cody (Blake Freeman) lost his job, he turned to video games for pleasure. Meanwhile, things go from bad to worse when Cody's wife grows weary of being married to a gamer, and walks out on him. But when Cody's pal Andy (Jason Mewes) rallies their old gang the Reign Clan to compete in the Cyberbowl Video Game Championship, it appears to be the perfect opportunity to put their gaming skills to use, and win a big cash prize in the process. With the old pals Oliver (Matt Shively) and "Hollywood" (Moises Arias) in tow, Cody and Andy set their sights on Los Angeles. Unfortunately for the Reign Clan, the forces of the universe seem to be working against them.
