It’s like Jet Set Radio…with Guns!

Date: June 3rd
Start time: 8pm CT
Game: Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)

This game has been sitting on my shelf for a very long time. I bought the game on the basis of it being like Jet Set Radio and for it’s over the top attitude. Realizing how awful of a gamer I am, I decide to do it justice and start playing. This was the mindset I had going into the game:

The tutorial is pretty long but necessary, because the controls are different. I was pretty clumsy at first, but I had a better handle of the game midway through. I didn’t realize the amount of profanities there were in the game as well. Whoops! I’ll adjust for that.

Also, the channel was raided by IAmCorgii, so a special thanks goes out to him. Really cool guy!

Streaming Tech

After some consulting on Twitter, I downscaled the stream to 480p. A lot of people will say, 480p will just look awful. After some tinkering, I can confirm yes, there are some pixels here and there, but the quality is acceptable. On mobile, it looks really great and that was the whole purpose of the change. My mobile audience was having buffering issues with my stream, so I needed to find  a way to accommodate for them. I’m very happy with the initial result.

With the resolution going to 480p, I’m considering the idea of exporting not only highlights, but the full streams to YouTube. It’s a great way to archive the streams without the quality being too degraded. Looking into this more.
