How to Survive was horrible. We’re doing PayDay 2 instead!

Date: May 14th
Start time: 8pm CT
Game: How to Survive (PC) PayDay 2 (PC)

I was pumped. I was ready, ready to play How to Survive. I was looking forward to starting out a brand new game. After 20 minutes of gameplay, my chat and I were not feeling it… at all.

I had to quickly change games so I decided on PayDay 2 to try out the lifestyle as a bank robber. Thing went in a different direction.

Personally I felt the stream went south due to unexpected bad games. Lessons to learn here, screen your games, even if you want to have a vanilla experience. Also, PayDay 2 is a great game. Lastly, be careful when brewing your coffee. I used a smaller mug which requires less water. Because of that, I downed my coffee too fast and had a coffee headache towards the end of the stream. Wasn’t feeling hot at all.

I was able to play some PayDay 2 with Cryptometric and we’re looking to plan for a dual stream sometime next week. Looking forward to that.

Streaming Tech

I really loved how PayDay 2 looked with the frame rate at 540p. I’m debating if my microphone audio is needs an increase in levels, not too sure yet.
