Beginner’s Guide to Building a Dedicated Streaming PC

Dedicated Streaming PC

My 6-year-old computer has been showing its age for a good while now. It has an Intel Core i7 4790K processor and an NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics card. I want to stream games like Cyberpunk 2077 that require high system requirements due to having buggy and unoptimized engines. That got me thinking about building a dedicated streaming PC to lighten the load. (more…)

Making a Tier List of Everything

Tier List Template

You can consider this blog post a filler. I just needed something to talk about, so I started writing a draft for this while watching YouTube videos when I realized just about everyone is making a tier list for everything under the sun. I then came to a realization that it’s an excellent form of curation that anyone can get into. (more…)

Streaming Struggles and Dealing with Anxiety

Streaming

I’ve been trying to stream again on my Twitch channel, but it has been a struggle thus far. The most recent stream I did as of this writing was a very dissatisfying experience. I’ve been wanting to get going as a streamer and content creator for years; it occupied my mind for most of the 2010s. However, I was never able to go through with it due to the demands of life and my physical and psychological decline. (more…)

Fujita’s Skull: 10th Year of Seanbaby’s Masterpiece

Fujita's Skull

Earlier in this blasted quarantine lockdown, I had the bright idea to do a reading of a particular online article published on Cracked.com that had just turned 10 years old. It gained a sort of cult following during that decade and boosted its writer as an online funnyman. Its proper title is “Worst Life Ever,” but it’s known better as its subject matter—Fujita’s Skull.

Half-Life VR, But the AI is Self-Aware: Gordon’s Madness

Half-Life VR, But the AI is Self-Aware

The ongoing COVID-19 lockdown here in Metro Manila has been hard on everyone, including the loser shut-in who wrote this post. Yes, even I am starting to crack, so much that I’ve started writing on this blog again. What has kept me going lately is the content I’ve been consuming on YouTube, and one of those is this insane masterpiece called Half-Life VR, But the AI is Self-Aware by wayneradiotv. (more…)

Gamechamp3000 — The World’s Craziest Man

Gamechamp3000

There are plenty of YouTube channels out there where people do mad stuff in video games. Most of it is stuff like crazy plays, speedruns, and 100% completions. That’s fine because while they’re hard, they’re still humanly possible. But when it gets to this level of absurd, then it deserves a special mention. Gamechamp3000 does things in games that sane people will never want to do. (more…)

A Brief Look at Etika and the Venus Project

Etika and Venus Project Founder Jacque Fresco

The suicide of Daniel Desmond Amofah, better known as Etika, has become a hot topic a few weeks ago. As his personal belongings, and then his body, were found along the East River, more information on his mental state and prior activities were brought to light, including his membership in an organization I first heard of in an infamous series of documentaries. (more…)

Fighting in the Age of Loneliness — Martial Melancholy

Fighting in the Age of Loneliness on SB Nation

I’ve been binge-watching videos on the SB Nation YouTube channel and related channels, specifically ones produced by SB Nation Labs creative director Jon Bois. There’s also the Deep Rewind series, which is also fascinating, even if it involved sports I don’t give two shits about. Recently, he came out with a five-part documentary series called “Fighting in the Age of Loneliness.” I watched it as it came out and am pretty depressed now because of it. (more…)

What is the Objective of My YouTube Channels?

YouTube

Since it’s still January and I’ve had a pretty good start this 2018, here’s another update of sorts. I swear this is the last site update I’ll post for a long while. It’s just that I felt I needed to put into writing what I have in mind for the two YouTube channels I run. Never mind that having two channels spreads me thin, but each do have its own purpose and goal. I wish to expound on that here, explaining the rationale behind having two of them and what I aim to accomplish with each. (more…)

Giant Robot Duel — Expected Nothing, Still Let Down

Giant Robot Duel

So, it sort of actually happened for real well over a week ago. The Giant Robot Duel that had been two years in the making finally came to pass, and it was pretty much how I expected it to be when I wrote about it here in the blog. I still watched it, much like Mayweather vs. McGregor—a circus you can’t really take your eyes away from. The only difference here is that there was something interesting enough with MayMac, while GRD was only good for memes that will die quick deaths. (more…)

Oxhorn — Telling the Stories of the Fallout Franchise

Oxhorn

There are a number of YouTube channels out there focused on either a specific game, franchise, publisher, or genre. I call them “game coverage channels,” which are great for those with more specific tastes in games. In this case, Oxhorn is a Fallout channel, which already makes it interesting for a CRPG fan like me. However, what makes this one stand out among its counterparts is its sheer quality. (more…)

Bathos, Sincerity, and Viewing Precaution

Doctor Strange donning the Cloak of Levitation

There’s this thing with Marvel movies I couldn’t put my finger on until now. I had previously reviewed Doctor Strange and thought that while it was good, it wasn’t the best and was even generic in tone. It seems that there’s something about the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s signature style of storytelling that combines seriousness with levity, which worked for a good while. However, something recently came up that may put a damper on its current and upcoming films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming. (more…)
