I hope everyone had an awesome Fourth of July! After celebrating the holiday with swimming and burger, we decided to stream some Jackbox Party Pack. As always, it was tons of fun making crazy T-Shirts and coming up with creative and funny answers for Fibbage and Quiplash. With this stream, I finally held enough average viewers to become a Twitch affiliate.
With the recent success I've had on Twitch, I plan on streaming much more often. I may even be able to come up with a set schedule, streaming regularly 2-3 times each week. I have also been doing other little things to improve the stream such as better lighting for the green screen, a second headset for friends I stream with, setting up a couple new chatbots, making a dedicated webpage for Twitch, and working on my Discord server. I hope to keep improving and making more friends as I stream on Twitch.
A decade ago, the last Destroy All Humans! game was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. While the game did not receive the best reviews, I remember enjoying the game. The open world adventure was enjoyable, included many fun weapons, and threw in some comedy.
The remake coming in 2020, will be a remaster of the original Destroy All Humans! game from 2005. This game was well received and includes many of the same aspects that I enjoyed in the most recent game, Path of the Furon.
While a remake isn't exactly breaking news, I would consider buying this game after its release. It gives old DAH! fans a chance to relive the fun experience and will also be available to gamers who have since left consoles and play on a PC.
I recently published an article about my thoughts of the first three Borderlands games. As I mention in the article, it has been a long time since I have played any of the games, but I am hoping to change that in the months leading up to the release of Borderlands 3.
I think I will revisit the original Borderlands game starting in early June. I have the GOTY Enhanced edition on Steam and plan on running through the main story from start to finish. I also might play the Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, my favorite DLC. I may not stream the entire experience, but expect to see me on Twitch occasionally as I get back into streaming this Summer.
One thing I definitely want to give a try is the "One Life Challenge" in Borderlands 2. I'm not sure if my gaming skills are quite good enough to avoid death entirely, but I would like to see how far I can make it through the game without dying.
Borderlands 3 is set to release September 13, 2019 and I am getting hyped for its release. One thing I find very disappointing is the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games store on launch. I mostly stick to Steam and I'm not entirely sure if I want to pre-order the game through a different client/store. From what I can tell, it will be about 6 months until the game is released on other PC clients.
Pokemon Go's Easter themed event is just around the corner. Starting on April 16th and ending on April 23rd, this week long event is focused on egg-hatching. Durring this event you can expect to see Pokemon like Pichu, Smoochum, and Magby in 2km eggs. There is also a change to catch a Shiny Buneary. There will also be double hatch candy, halved incubator distance, and 60 minute lucky eggs. There also may be some other Pokemon hatching from eggs as well as field research related to hatching eggs.
Its been awhile before I've been this excited for a new release... Here's the reveal for Borderlands 3!
Borderlands Free Weekend
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free to play this weekend on Steam. The Handsome Collection includes Borderlands 2 & The Pre-Sequel as well as most of the DLC for both games. Its a great opportunity to try out these great games. You can also purchase the entire collection for just $14! The games may be a bit dated now, but these are both excellent games that could prove to be dozens or even hundreds of hours of fun! You can check out the sale here:
