AC Odyssey and Google Project Stream


There was once a Domino's deal of half-off whatever pizza that anyone could order. I decided to load up my pizza with as much stuff as I possibly could without sacrificing pizza quality. With my extra-large orders, including double cheese, triple garlic, and as much onion as the pizza could hold (including other toppings), my pizza behemoths turned into some hilarious entertainment as some people at my workplace quite literally left my immediate area once the pizza passed through my system and turned into methane. I got the nickname Gassius Maximus because of the level of garlic and onions I consumed on a daily basis.

If it's entertainment you're looking for, I would suggest looking at Google's Project Stream. I was invited to try Assassin's Creed: Odyssey out as a beta project, and I was able to stream it over Mixer. Surprisingly, the application ran with hardly a hitch in performance. I kept in mind that I had the fastest broadband service possible, but this new game-streaming service was definitely superior. Even while streaming the video game, I could play Odyssey without a hitch virtually through my browser. Zero disc. Zero download. Barely noticeable differences between running an actual game.

I think when it comes to streaming video games, this might be the new king. A lot of people spend heavy amounts of money on capture cards and similar hardware, so perhaps this new technology might be the best kind for gamers and streamers in terms of saving money. No console needed and easy to access. I was pleasantly surprised in the technology.

Try it out if and when you can.

Twitch Los Angeles Meetup: One of the Best Events, Period

I'm kind of in awe.



About two years ago, I attended a Twitch Los Angeles Meetup in Burbank. Back then it was still named Twitch Hollywood. But I knew I wanted to be a part of this because it was all about Twitch, video game livestreaming, and enjoying ourselves as gamers.

Our last event, Saturday February 8th, was one of the best events I've ever been a part of. Small enough that plenty of folks knew each other, but large enough that we got deserved attention.

Red Bull, Voodoo Ranger Beer, Need for Kneading, Twickle, artists, all sorts of companies came out. It was a fantastic night.


We had a wonderful venue, the Hungarian Cultural Arts Center in Los Angeles. There were a few mishaps with moving in, but thankfully we were able to clear out whatever the previous guests were doing. Which strangely had to do with setting a bathtub on fire.

People lined up around the block after parking about a mile away. We didn't think we'd get the attention we did. Three weeks before the…

Alien Isolation: Jumpscares and I Don't Mix

Alien Isolation Jumpscares 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 treat, and for multiple reasons.

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 easily fight …
