What Makes for Funny Entertainment? Buying a "Hot" Xbox 360

funny entertainment


Back when I worked in retail, I remember that my Xbox 360 red ringed at some point after playing Mass Effect. It's one of the reasons I never finished the series, and so it left a sour taste in my mouth. I lamented that to a co-worker while I worked in a tech shop.

"You want another 360?"

A-yuh!

"Shake on it!"

I reached out my hand—a little nervous—and shook, presumably to a fate that I would regret.

"Bring a hundred and fifty tomorrow. Bring it."

I don't think I've ever remembered something so strongly in my life. 

The next day, I remember walking out to the middle of the parking lot at work to a near-destroyed car that somehow still operated. I shook the hand of Mr. Smiley, as I nicknamed him, and felt a sense of overwhelming dread.

Cyanide and Happiness has their own version of a BR game, one that's a lot more simplistic and fun than what you might have tried in the past. Plus, there's not really much of a communication aspect to the game and so most of your time can be spent focusing on making some funny entertainment for your viewers if you're going to stream it. Plus, a lot of the humor from the comic carries over. You can add boobs to your character, a...dong...and customize your character with mustaches, foppy hairdos, or a combination of facial hair, boobs, and dongs, which goes into scary territory about who the people that are left behind really are.

But anyways, I bought the Xbox 360. Mr. Smiley got back in his completely beaten-up car just after telling me "You never saw me!"

Carmen Electra's Striptease Video Workout and XSplit's VCam Software

It was around 2007 that I moved to Jacksonville and met up with some cool folks to hang out with. Some of these peeps were Navy folks which was the dominant military service in the area. Mayport was nearby, and so the Navy presence was pretty high. I was happy to find some circle of friends to be around, and it turns out we got up to some weird shenanigans.



I don't remember why, but this group of friends and I decided to put on Carmen Electra's Aerobic Striptease video. It was me, two Navy guys, and a Navy guy's wife. Yes, we practiced warming up, raising our arms and rotating our wrists. Yes, it was a striptease warmup.

XSplit has just released their newest software product, VCam. If you're streaming video games via Twitch, it might be a solid product to take a look at. It all depends on what you want and what you have. A lot of videogame streamers use green screens with proper lighting. However, that can easily reach up into the range of several hundreds of dollars…

E3 2019: Quite Possibly My Favorite E3 of All

Phil Spencer recently admitted that the E3 show for 2019 was weaker specifically because Activision and Sony weren't at the con. I couldn't disagree more with his opinion, as I thought this latest con was probably the best--at least for me. And I'll tell you why.

Why E3 2019 Was Impressive For Me So, my first foray into E3 was through AOL. I had a very strong misconception that I would be trying the latest games, meeting awesome folks, and partying a ton. The latter part was somewhat true as I got some pretty decent party invites, but the former aspects weren't. Attending E3 under media, especially controlled media, is a lot more work than you might think.
It's quite literally going to an interview, record interview, sit down, write the interview, and go to the next interview. That's about it. You're there to work, and that's what they make you do. Or, of course, you lose your job, and while I can think of many jobs I wouldn't want over professiona…

Using Restreamio and Expanding Your Video Game Streaming Audience

It's been a minute, that's for damn sure. I tried re-signing up for the Twitch affiliate status only to realize it wasn't the path I wanted. Restricting oneself to one avenue of video game streaming really isn't the best method of learning the entire market, so I decided to focus my efforts with something that I knew about in the past: Restreamio!

Using Restreamio for Video Game Streaming Content
Restreamio acts as a streaming hub for several different platforms. You stream to it, and it rebroadcasts to all of your channels. It's convenient and can potentially expand your audience much wider; the only problem, I think, is the matter of hosting. If you're streaming on Twitch, Mixer, YouTube, and Facebook, then it's a matter of hosting who you want to on each individual platform. That's not a very easy task, unfortunately. But if you're looking to get into video game streaming and you don't want to limit yourself to one platform, I think it's …
