One Last Tetris 99 Stream Before I Left for My Vacation

This time, we talk about the rumors of Overwatch 2, E3 speculation, places we’ve traveled, my quarter-life crisis, places we’d love to travel to, fave concerts, and more!

Tetris 99 and E3 Speculation

In advance of E3, we talk about some hot rumors, leaks, and some of the things we’re hoping to see come out of the show! With my trip just days away at the time of the stream (I’m probably on the plane now), I talk about some of my concerns with not streaming for the next few weeks. I share a few stories of console launches I’ve been a part of. Also, Tetris 99 action of course!

Tetris 99 and the Notion of Streaming Only One Game

There are real advantages to only streaming one video game. Doing so makes it easier for you to attract and maintain an audience that loves that game. Ninja’s fans love him as a skilled player and as an on-screen personality, but they also love Fortnite and can count on him streaming it daily. As much as I would love his money and at least some of his fame, I struggle to wrap my head around how and other single-game streamers keep their sanity playing only one game for that long.

Being a variety streamer can help you stay sane. Streaming games as they move in and out of my life is a more natural way for me to play games and the approach I’ve planned on taking from the start. However, I lose the stability that comes with streaming only one game. I even see this phenomenon with my own small stream, where certain viewers only tune in for Overwatch and others only drop by for Paper Mario. Can’t blame people for wanting to watch games they like, versus sticking with me regardless of what game I’m playing.

In spite of my vow to not get monogamous with any one game, the thought of getting steady with Tetris 99 heats up every time I stream that game.

Tetris 99’s 3rd Maximus Cup Gives You The Opportunity to Earn a Game Boy Skin!

Whoa!

Between now and May 19th, 11:59pm PT, you can unlock a Game Boy skin in Tetris 99! All you have to do is partake in the game’s online battle mode and earn 100 event points.

Tetris 99 – Season 1 Big Block DLC Review

Tetris 99 has been one of 2019’s biggest surprises. Putting a battle royale spin on a timeless classic has grown to become Nintendo Switch Online’s killer app. Even with only one mode during the first few months of the game’s existence, I’ve poured dozens of hours into the game and had no plans of stopping.

But for players looking to shake things up, the Big Block DLC is available for purchase. For $9.99 USD, you get access to two new offline modes. Are these new additions enough to pry you away from the online multiplayer action?
