Drinking Whiskey and Playing Video Games: What the Fuck is THIS?!


HAY MY NAME IS JEFF.
 No really, it is.
 But let me tell you some about me. I grew up kind of knowing I wanted to work heavily in entertainment. The problem was that I wasn't always entertaining, but somewhere in the depths of my soul I had it. It just needed to get out of me.
I lived in Florida most of my life where old people go to die. Tourism is probably the largest industry in Florida, so naturally what else do you do when you get old? You just look at shit and walk around. Sounds perfect for tourism.
I decided though that I'd move to California to pursue a career in motion picture. Well, that's kind of on the backburner. After graduating grad school, I didn't know what the flying everloving fuck to do, so I felt it was best if I learned how to market myself. And that's how I found marketing.

Streaming on Twitch: How the Fuck did THAT happen?!

I've been streaming on Twitch since July of 2013. I literally called a friend up working at Fry's to ask if he could see my twitch stream from his phone. You should have heard me shout when it happened. You probably did. You just didn't know it was me.
But anygee, I decided after years of streaming on Twitch and my love for drinking whiskey and playing video games, that I would revamp my stream into something a little bit...different. If you've seen my stream before, it's nothing like it used to be. I did everything from the ground-up and I had a little help from some folks in the graphic design department.
But I've integrated a lot more than what you see here, and there's so much more behind the scenes than what you realize. It's a nightmare to keep track of everything, but I've had a blast integrating it all. In the future, you'll see video game reviews of a different nature here. If they're streamable, how they played, and other tidbits I'd love to share. I promise you though, you'll laugh.

 So without further ado, if you'd like to see what I have in store for you, please check out the stream. And if you haven't noticed...everything is disease-related.

Welcome to The DiZeeZ'D. The strain is alive! Thanks.

Project Tempo: Amazon's Answer to a Cloud Gaming Service

Amazon's Answer to Stadia: Project Tempo, Their Cloud Gaming Service It wasn't even a week ago that I thought about how Amazon might respond to Google's foray into gaming. The videogame livestreaming giant doesn't really hold a candle to the likes of Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, or (now) Google when it comes to video games. There was Breakaway, a project that was abandoned , and on the horizon, there's New World and Crucible. If that's the launch lineup for Amazon in the coming years, it pales in comparison to Google's cloud gaming service and the current library it has to offer. But recently, Amazon announced its Project Tempo , a gaming service that seeks to rival against Google Stadia. In the age where dopamine and serotonin are linked to instant gratification, this is a welcome announcement from Amazon, a company that has dominated livestreaming since its acquisition of Twitch TV in August of 2014. And it's pretty obvious why Amazon could easi

Alien Isolation: Jumpscares and I Don't Mix

Alien Isolation Jumpscares Yep, that's the alien. If you know me well, you know that I am an incredibly jumpy person. Even a host on my Twitch channel often makes me jump and rear my arm back in defense against...a sound. But that unfortunate disposition hasn't been abundantly public until I played Alien Isolation. JFC, I nearly punched my equipment several times avoiding the alien in that game. As much as the game makes me jump like a 5-year old, I enjoy every minute of it and regret that I hadn't purchased it sooner. I actually downloaded it from the Xbox Game Pass. I think it's a fantastic deal for 15 dollars a month since a lot of titles are swapped in and out. Regardless, my absolute horrid sensitivity to in-game sounds (even non-jumpscare moments make me jump) often serves as a point of entertainment for people on the Twitch channel. In the very beginning moments of AI, I rarely could relax. Puckered butthole? Indeed. Streaming Alien Isolation has been a

Mutazione: An Interesting Adventure Game Published by Akupara Games

Mutazione by Akupara Games I'm vaguely reminded of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his wacky tales with  Mutazione , an interesting adventure game from Akupara Games and developer Die Gute Fabrik. I recently  livestreamed it on twitch  for a few nights and had some remarks about it.    Marquez's largest narrative device was magical realism, and that's what you'll see in a lot of  Mutazione.  Magical realism is a concept where supernatural events happen in the natural world. A lot of that happens in this game, which tells the story of a girl (Kai) that visits a strange island in response to a sick relative's request. That's about as realistic as the game is because once Kai arrives on the island, she's greeted by friendly mutants, humanoid beings, and plants that do a lot more than just decorate the island. The backstory is that a giant meteor hit the island and affected the lives of everyone, changing humans into mutants over the course of many years. Most of the
