Being Unprepared for the 4K Era of Gaming

I chose to opt out of the first wave of 4K gaming with the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. Between their steep price of entry, not having a 4K screen, and only really offering a resolution bump, it didn’t make sense for me. Besides, I’ve spent most of that time gaming on a Nintendo Switch, which oftentimes struggles to run 1080p.

Once the smoke cleared, viewers would only see a black screen. Finally, the stream would shut itself off. All of this would be controlled by an expensive Channel Points redemption and automated through LioranBoard.

Blowing up the stream sounds cool and all. But exactly how does that effect actually improve my stream and help me achieve my goals on Twitch?

Some of My Favourite Ironclad Cards in Slay the Spire

Twitch Sings: A Family Affair

On most Saturday nights since this ordeal began, my cousins and I have gathered online to spend some quality time with one another. Though it’s certainly not the same as our in-person get-togethers, it’s a great way for us to stay in touch.

For many months, we’ve used this time to play Jackbox together. A few of our sessions involved the board game Codenames. But the most recent and arguably biggest hit in our family? Twitch Sings.
