“Twitch is a great place for people who love Video games, Music and Art”

It might be a little overwhelming since there is a lot of streamers out there but you should really just start off by going to the browse section and just choosing some of your favorite games to play. Most of the Twitch chats in streams are very friendly and helpful to new people of Twitch. And once you find your favorite streamers you can support them if you like by watching, telling your friends to watch, chatting, subscribing, and cheering with Bits to help your streamer. Bits are a virtual good you can buy on Twitch through Amazon that you can give to your favorite streamer as a donation to show your support.

There are tons of cool communities you can join that share the same interests as you. I watch Twitch almost every day and have been for years I have met and played with so many cool people and I would highly recommend anyone to watch Twitch its the best.

 

Should you play Overwatch?

For people who don’t know what Overwatch is its a team based first person shooter game created by Blizzard. Its not really your normal type of shooter every character has its very own abilities and ultimates that you use to help your team win. You start off the game by joining a team of six with each player selecting a hero and a role. There is an Offensive, defensive, tank and support roles which players choose to work together to capture or defend depending what side you’re on and the one who does it the best wins. Or you might get to escort a payload and whoever makes it farther wins the game.

Overwatch has tons of game modes like quick play usually for casual players, arcade mode where people can create their own custom games and competitive mode where you receive a rank and play with people around your skill level. The game has won many awards as The Best Game of the Year Award, The Game Award for Best Esports Game and many more. I feel the reason why this game is doing so well mainly because of the great community that it has its a game that really promotes working together and being positive even though you can get some toxic people from time to time. Blizzard really does do a great job of keeping the game fresh by doing limited time events and new competitive seasons.

You can earn tons of gear for your favorite Heroes like emotes, victory poses, sprays and player skins. You can also earn a special gold gun for heroes by winning games in Comp season. You earn a rank in Comp season by playing 10 matches which put you in a specific rank like Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master and Grandmaster. They also have started an Overwatch League where pro Overwatch players compete and the games are streamed on Twitch almost every week.   If you’re the type of person that loves competitive team based games then you will definitely want to try Overwatch they also do free to play weekends sometimes where you can try the game out for free. I feel like Blizzard really found a way to please the casual and competitive side of a gamer by having so much variety. So remember to look out for those free plays days and give it a try its available for console Xbox, Playstation and PC.

The Dell XPS Tower Review

The Dell XPS Tower is a powerful computer that can edit and game very well. It comes in all black and has such a sleek design. It has an Intel i5 core processor with an Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card. The cost is a little high they go for around $800-$1250 which is a fair price considering what it can do. Dell acquired Alienware which was one of the best gaming companies around so you know that you will be able to play the latest and greatest games in high resolution with no problem. You can also do a customization order if you’d like.

Or you can get the basic model and upgrade it yourself because it is so easy to do so. You can raise the processor from an i5 to and i7 intel core processor or maybe an AMD if that’s more your liking. You can also raise the RAM to around 16GB and maybe a little higher than that and raise the graphics card if you’ll like. The Dell XPS Tower also has plenty of usb ports, a headphone jack, an ethernet slot and even an hdmi slot. And as far as performance goes this computer can handle tons on tabs/applications running at the same time due to its ram and processing power.

And if we are talking about gaming it runs the latest games pretty well and very smooth like Overwatch and Fortnite. The only problem is that you might need to get a better keyboard and mouse if you want to do some serious gaming. But personally I love a computer that can do what I want it to do flawlessly. I can do some design work while listening to music or do some high quality gaming whenever I want. So if you’re in the market of getting a PC that can edit photos/videos, browse the internet, and game in max settings then this might be the computer for you.

Must Watch Netflix Series

Breaking Bad:

Which is a story about a high-school chemistry teacher who has been diagnosed with lung cancer. And his main goal and what he wants to do before he dies is leave something behind for family. So he decides to cook and deal meth with his partner/ former student Jesse. This show has tons of drama, action, comedy and adventure which makes it an overall good show.

Marvel Series:

You can never go wrong with Marvel and there is plenty of Marvel movies and shows. But some of the best would have to be Jessica Jones that is about a former superhero who owns her own detective agency. The Iron Fist who is about a man that studied martial arts with monks who returned home after everyone thought he was dead. Daredevil that is about a blind man who is a lawyer that fights crime in the middle of the night. And Luke Cage that is about a man with superhero strength that fights crime and corruption in his city and together they make The Marvel’s Defenders which is another show where they all group up to fight evil villains.

Stranger Things:

Stranger things is a sci-fi/horror show about a group of kids that live in the 80’s in Indiana who are trying to find their friend who has gone missing. The kids and their parents go through some pretty weird stuff and adventures. The show has 2 seasons so far with a 3rd on its way and its really good to binge watch.

Travelers:

Is a science fiction show that’s about people coming back from the future to help mankind and their future by changing events in time. And the way the Travelers are getting sent back is from this ai called The Director. Its a time traveling show that is filled with action, adventure and some twists and I highly recommend it if you like that sort of stuff.

Why is Fortnite so Popular?

What is Fortnite?

Fortnite is a free to play online battle royale multiplayer game along with a single player mode created by Epic Games. In the single player mode you can do missions, build forts, and fight off zombies with friends. And in the Battle Royale mode its you and 100 people enter a map through a flying bus, collect loot and kill your opponents until the last one is standing. Fortnite is a game that is playable on PC, Xbox, Playstation and mobile devices.  Its a fast paced online multiplayer with building skills and destructible environments with intense combat.

Its a great game to play solo or with friends and family.  You generally land on the map, collect materials, weapons and use your building skills to outplay your opponent till the end. There are also chests that you open that can maybe have great gear in them. And as the match progresses there is something called the storm that you do not want to be in because it will damage you as long as you’re inside. It is a competitive game but Epic Games also found a way to make the game more fun for casual players by releasing events and limited game modes. They also sell their own currency called V-Bucks that you can use to buy cool cosmetics in their Item shop they have outfits, gliders and emotes.

Fortnite is also cross-platform that means you can have PC people play with console players. What makes Fortnite more appealing than any other BR games is that the game is so colorful, has nice graphics, cool skins, is a fast paces shooting game, you can build bases and you’re able to play with almost anyone you want. They also have tons of rewards for playing their game with something called the Battle Pass. The Battle Pass is 100 tiers the more you play the more cool things you unlock like outfits, gliders, emotes and player icons. And on top of that they give you weekly challenges to complete and get even more stuff. Overall this is a really fun game to try out and it won’t even cost you a dime.
