No Peachette. No Bowsette. No Problem! Jett Plays New Super Mario Bros. U!

Peachette will be in the Switch port of New Super Mario Bros. U coming in January 2019 and Bowsette may not see the light of day beyond the flood of art, memes, and cosplay. That’s not gonna stop me from giving New Super Mario Bros. U another go! Shoutouts to Twitter user @ayyk92 for the art and concept!

My crappy Twitter account and the larger discussion about maintaining the In Third Person experience

Oh you didn’t know In Third Person has a Twitter account? I don’t blame you.

When I first started the blog in 2009, I set up a Twitter account to take advantage of being able to post from the blog to Twitter automatically. From then on, it was nothing more than a content-posting robot. For that handful of people that have subscribed to my Twitter feed over the years in spite of this, thank you. Also, why would you subject yourself to that?!

It’s emblematic of how I’ve handled external platforms until fairly recently. External platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitch were afterthoughts. Nothing more than platforms with functions that could help enhance the experience on my site. To a certain extent, I still don’t know how engaged I want to be on those, as external outreach isn’t necessarily a priority for me. However, being a spam machine isn’t a good look regardless.

Mega Man 11 – Block Man and Bounce Man Live Stream

Mega Man 11 is live! I take on my first two robot masters: Block Man and Bounce Man! Block Man’s stage gave me a bit of trouble, but Bounce Man’s stage almost caused me to rage quit the stream!

Wheels within Wheels! Spider-Man Raids Fisk’s Warehouse

After a false start to the stream, I return to re-do the Wheels within Wheels mission! Also complete the mission where Peter has to track all of his stuff from the garbage!

My Intro to MOBAs through Arena of Valor

Save for an hour of noodling with Guardians of Middle-Earth on PS3 many years ago, the entire MOBA movement has essentially eluded me. Flagship titles like League of Legends and Dota 2 have a home on PC, a platform I don’t play games on. Furthermore, my eyes tend glaze over any time I try to watch a match or have someone explain to me how these games work. Probably the same reaction I get from most people when I go in-depth about fighting games.

With Arena of Valor on the Switch, it’s an opportunity for me to meet the genre half way. I can play it on a platform I routinely use, and the game from what I’ve heard is a more streamlined version of the genre’s titans. After two hours of play, did I enjoy my time with the Switch MOBA? And could this be a stepping-stone towards the real deal?

Shocker Saga! Playing More Spider-Man on PS4!

The Shocker bookends another session of Spider-Man. In between, I take on a cool side-quest that puts the web-slinger in the role of private eye, and PEOPLE WON’T STOP CALLING ME!

I Love Chilli! Overwatch Ringer Carries Randy and I to Victory!

Randy came over to the house to test a modified streaming setup. We didn’t get the multi-feeds going this time, but we did get multiple mics going at once while manually switching feeds between games. I think I have a potential solution for that problem, but it will have to wait. For now, watch the stream as a Twitch viewer joins our squad and carries our team to victory! Oh yeah, towards the end of the stream, we hit a cool accomplishment by garnering our 1,000th view! Thank you all for tuning in!

My Failed Attempt at Upgrading My Streaming PC

For months now, I’ve been preparing to upgrade my PC. Though I’ve never done anything of the sort, I’ve had friends coach me on what parts to buy and how to install everything. As soon as all of the parts came in, I cleared off the kitchen table, got a screwdriver, and got to work. This is my story of PC upgrading failure.

Trying out Arena of Valor on the Nintendo Switch for the First Time

Coming into the genre essentially blind, I came into Arena of Valor with an open mind. Not sure if I’ll continue with this MOBA journey, but I’m glad to have at least tried one! Shout-outs to Twitch user Moligun for hanging out with me for the duration of the stream, as he gave me tips, talked about being a new dad, and we bounced around some ideas for incorporating gaming into his local bar!
