About to play Payday 2 for the first time

My buddy and I are about to try out Payday 2. Neither of us have played a Payday game before, so it’ll be an interesting time. I’ll be streaming on Twitch if you want to tune in. I don’t know a lot about Payday, other than it’s a cooperative game where you have to pull of heists (I think?). We’ll see how I like it.

Twitch Streaming: Beyond Two Souls

I finished Beyond Two Souls earlier today and streamed most of the final part of the game on Twitch. I’m in the process of copying all of the videos over to YouTube but until then you can view the videos on my Twitch channel.

Here is the last hour of the game if you’re interested in viewing it:


(there’s the Twitch stream on Youtube. I might eventually upload the actual capture file because it should be of better quality).

I enjoyed the conclusion of the game, but honestly the final third of the game is a little strange. It takes a strange turn, and at times it’s difficult to understand what any particular chapter has to do with any other (especially the chapter with the Native American family in the middle of the game). Anyway, I’m going to end up trading Beyond Two Souls in toward Gran Turismo 6.

Darth Gumballs Plays: Dead Island – 001

I’ve recently started to play around with streaming to Twitch in the typical ‘Let’s Play’ video format, and I find it adds a bit of enjoyment to playing games. Even though I know for a fact no one is watching my streams it still feels different to be playing in front of a “potential” (however unlikely) audience, whether it being someone watching the live stream or watching the recorded video on YouTube later.

I’m using OBS to stream and record my videos locally. I may put together a sort of tutorial video in the future for those who want to see exactly what the process looks like (it’s not incredibly difficult, but it may not be common sense either). Anyway, for whatever reason the actual stream on Twitch of this video was pretty choppy and ugly looking. I was downloading a few things on Steam and on my Xbox so I’m hoping that’s the culprit and next time the stream will look better.

For now, enjoy my first “Let’s Play” video for Dead Island, and feel free to follow me on Twitch [http://www.twitch.tv/jdh5153] (I’ll follow back).

The mic audio needs adjusted, I didn’t realize it was that low until after I uploaded it to YouTube.
