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!"

How to Tell if Someone is Viewbotting (and other malicious things)

There's an aspect of livestreaming video games that gets under my skin a bit. Viewbotting. A lot of streamers have done it in the past. In fact, I once caught someone viewbotting and looked at who the bots were "following." A laundry list of very familiar names showed up, many partnered accounts on Twitch with millions of followers. Well-known streamers making a living. It's definitely abused a lot on streaming platforms, sort of the "black hat" method of livestreaming. Thankfully, nobody I saw listed from those bot accounts was any streamer that I was supporting. I don't bother supporting anyone trying to find "get partnership quick" methods. If you want to build a business out of streaming video games , then please don't bother viewbotting. You'll eventually find you wasted your money and your community will likely abandon you. However, if you feel that someone is viewbotting, here's a few ways you can tell someone is

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

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
