How-To Easily Create Colour Gradients in OBS Without Photoshop or Other Photo Editing Apps

Colour gradients are a great way of adding design elements that fade into different colours. Until recently, this effect was only possible within Photoshop or other external photo-editing apps. As a streamer, you’d have to bounce between your streaming software and your photo editor to create and implement gradients in the right size.

Now there’s an easier way to create simple gradients within OBS without having to use an external photo app. Let me show you how!

The Frustrating Decentralization of PC RGB Lighting Management

RGB lighting might be the single biggest cliche in PC culture. But when I powered on my new PC for the first time and saw the glow of my CPU and RAM, I was in love. Since then, I’ve gotten a few more devices that support RGB, including a mouse, keyboard, and mouse pad. By happenstance, the new graphics card also has an RGB emblem, which is a nice bonus.

Seeing the lights in full bloom continues to be a treat. Unfortunately, managing them has proven to be a nightmare, especially if you want every device to glow in sync.

Some of My Favourite Roguelike and Rogue-lite Games (So Far)

For a long time, I actively avoided the Roguelike genre. Based on my limited understanding of how these games worked, the threat of losing all of your progress upon death had no appeal to me whatsoever.

Two aspects of the genre got me to change my tune. One, the advent of Rogue-lites made punishment less severe. Instead of losing everything when you die, your hero would gain permanent upgrades during each run, making successive runs a bit easier while also providing value to failed runs. Two, the Rogue-lite format has permeated beyond the dungeons of yesteryear. From action games, to turn-based strategy tiles, and even card games have caught the Rogue-lite bug. Having Rogue-lite elements incorporated into game genres I love has gone a long way towards me appreciating Rogue-lites and Roguelikes as a whole.

Here are some of my favourites!

My 2020 Game of the Year

2020 was a strange year for many reasons. With this being a transition year between current and next generation consoles, the slate of games we got was on the lighter side. Furthermore, with a pandemic raging across the world, many game developers were forced to work from home, forcing delays for many upcoming releases.

Of the games I did play this year, very few were actually published in 2020. Nevertheless, there were some serious contenders for the crown. My 2020 game of the year is…
