  1. In this video i am just doing side missions and getting some better gear to help with the next stage of the game but there's still 1 mission left in this region and that's to kill a boss i don't know when i will attempt to kill it again but it will be some day XD (for the tags i'm just using the tags that steam has on the game)
  2. Howey all, Im a very small streamer mostly Destiny 1 & will be maining Destiny 2. Im looking to link up with relaxed adults to stream with & generally have a laugh. I'm uk based but play late on weekends as used to do trials Carrys & Recovs, also have been doing some PubG streaming & would like team mates for that. My skill set in destiny was above average & I'm very relaxed for the most part, My skill set on pubG well I don't really have one but it's fun anyway. If any of you guys are interested in linking up my STEAM & XBL is: YeOldeFatBadger Feel free to add me & lets have some fun.
  3. Here are my first thoughts on Super Lucky's Tale on PC!
  4. Have you seen the Truck Driver game on Xbox, PS4 or PC like I have and thought oh that looks like a good game and concept, yes it may well be for Xbox and PS4 as it is only truck simulator for Xbox and PS4 but for me the game falls short and I would definitely not recommend it for PC. Why well for a start the graphics are not the best however I do like the story in the game and building relationships with your customers. However the game still has bugs and some glitches in It. The truck physics are no where near realistic. So is it worth buy well if you want a fun game with a bit of a story and are not bothered about realism then possibly however I do think it is overpriced for Xbox & PS4 especially with the graphics quality. If you are Gaming on a PC and want a realistic Simulator game then this is definitely not for you would be better off spending your money on Euro Truck Simulator 2 or American Truck Simulator by SCS. Both ETS2 and ATS have an unofficial multilayer mod and a huge moding community. What are your thoughts on Truck Driver let me know in the comments.

Play alone or with friends, run your own server or join others.
  6. In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Rikki & Vikki on PC. Rikki & Vikki is an indie puzzling platformer game that reminds you of the old co-op game. In this game, you play as Rikki, Vikki or Rikki and Vikki (if you're doing co-op) who are going after a dragon who has stolen their kids in the middle of the night. So doing what any responsible parent would do, they go after the dragon to retrieve their kids. Looking to be inspired by Solomon's Key as you must collect all the keys to exit the level and there are actually over 100 levels to complete. If you would like to play Rikki and Vikki for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC {STEAM] $9.99 USD https://store.steampowered.com/app/893690/Rikki__Vikki/ The Song Being Heard at the end of the video is: Music from https://filmmusic.io "Acid Trumpet" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
  7. What's up guys! austuhn/No6 here! Today I played this nifty little indie game that I found on Xbox Game Pass, it's called "Clustertruck" as you may know already lol. This game is solely about parkouring from truck-to-truck as it gets clustered quickly and you've got to make your way as fast as you can to the finish line. I had so much fun playing this game, this game does make you rage but the feeling of jumping through that goal at the finish line is immensely relieving! Also, I am taking into consideration of playing games that you're "iffy" about buying! Leave a "Like" and drop a comment down below stating what games you haven't been sure of buying and I'll play it - just for my fans! PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE A "LIKE" IF YOU ENJOYED THIS VIDEO! DROP A COMMENT DOWN BELOW ON WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS GAME TOO!

  9. In this Live Stream from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon on PC. Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is a predecessor to the NES Version of Castlevania and is the prelude to the game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. In Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon you get to control four different characters, Zangetsu, a cursed swordsman with a vendetta against demons, Miriam a shardbinder who wants to use her powers for good, Alfred and older alchemist, and Gebel another shardbinder who is corrupted and uses his powers the way he sees fit. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses as well, and you will have to use certain characters to achieve certain things. The game offers two ways to play a Veteran Mode for a more Retro like gameplay and then a Casual play for those who just want to relax and play. The game is really well made and a lot of fun even if it proves difficult at times. If you would like to play this Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC [STEAM] $9.99 USD https://store.steampowered.com/app/838310/Bloodstained_Curse_of_the_Moon/ [HUMBLE BUNDLE] Purchasing through my humble bundle link not only helps me as a stream but some of the proceedings go to the Autism Alliance of Michigan.

  11. In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Skul Demo on PC. In Skul, you play as Littlebone, a small skeleton guard who is giving the task of going to rescue his king and council from the grasp of the humans. In the game, you are able to pick up the skull of other guards who have fallen in battle and gain their abilities which includes swordsman, Minotaur, and a hunter to name a few. This is a rogue-lite game and so the levels do change, as well as the difficulty. Some people get a little upset about the difficulty but I actually liked the difficult jumps. This is a rogue-lite game and since everything is random, you may not get the exact power you need to defeat a boss right off, so you will need to strategize with the powers you have been giving. My one thing is it takes some of the enemies a moment to hit so they are a bit easy and if the demo is set to an easy mode that would make sense and the current demo would be awesome as an easy mode and can be spent that if you choose to play as easy then your boss fights will be harder since you are powering through enemies. Just more of a suggestion as I'm not sure if that's what the developers are going for. Another thing is I would love for them to do is maybe extend the number of levels so that you may get a least two different powers to use. I like the feature of switching between powers or at least keep your stand head as one of the power if you only have the one. Other than that the game is pretty fun. If you would like to play Skul for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC macOS Linux [Itch.io] Free Demo https://southpawgames.itch.io/skul Also be sure to wishlist the game on Steam at the following link: [STEAM] https://store.steampowered.com/app/1147560/Skul_The_Hero_Slayer/ The Song Being Heard at the end of the video is: Music from https://filmmusic.io "Acid Trumpet" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
  12. In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Crystal Story Awakening Demo on PC. Crystal Story Awakening is an RPG game that is currently in development. You play as a Mina a young knight who wakes up in a mysterious place. She is to be a Knight of the Crystal but her powers haven't awakened just yet. The game is pretty fun and although I did have to stop and go look for the controls due to downloading from itch.io client and not the website. I did find the game to be fun in its early stages. Looking forward to seeing how the game turns out as it is developed. If you would like to play Crystal Story Awakening for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC [Itch.io] Demo is Free https://bredfrown.itch.io/crystal-story The Song Being Heard at the end of the video is: Music from https://filmmusic.io "Acid Trumpet" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
  13. In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Wild Woods on PC. Wild Woods is a game this is currently in development. The game features a single-player or local co-op game in which you or you and your friend controls one of six cats or maybe it's five cats and a fox cause one looks like a fox and you go through the woods loading your cart up with wood, healing herbs and gold. As you are minding your own business waves of bandits will try to attack you in which you must fight and dodge them to protect yourself and the cart carrying your goods. If they hit the cart you do lose some of your goods. The game is pretty awesome and one of the things I really liked about the game is the fact that the interface is hidden pretty well. At first, I was wondering how much everything was but the cart shows you how much wood you have, how many healing plants and good and walking up to the healing plants show you how much health you have or if you need to use one. It helps to keep the screen clean so you can see more of the game. If you would like to play Wild Woods for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC macOS Linux [Itch.io] Free to Play https://wildwoods.itch.io/wildwoods The Song Being Heard at the end of the video is: Music from https://filmmusic.io "Acid Trumpet" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
  14. In this gameplay video from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays Super Thundercats: The Lost Eye of Thundera (Fanmade Remake) on PC. I had a hard time deciding rather if this game was Indie or if it was indeed retro. However, because this a remake of the actual Thundercats game from 1987 and even though it is from an Indie Developer. I have decided that this would technically fall under the Not an Indie Game, which explains the title at the beginning of my video. Super Thundercats: The Lost Eye of Thundera is a fanmade remake of the side-scrolling adventure from 1987 that puts you in the shoes of the leader of the Thundercats Lion-O. One day Lion-O goes out on a mission and when he comes back he is informed that the other Thundercats have been taken to Mumm-ra the ever-living's (Yes I totally said it in Mumm-ra's voice and if you know the show 9/10 you probably did too) Black Pyramid and he must go across the lands of third earth to retrieve his friends and comrades. The game plays much like the 1987 version of the game just has been overhauled and a save feature has been added to the game. I thought that the game was awesome and really enjoyed what I did get to play of it. You can use a keyboard or you can configure a controller to the game. Also, to navigate the menus you have to go up to go down if that makes sense to you . Otherwise, this is a great job of a nostalgia game being remade. If you would like to play Super Thundercats: The Lost Eye of Thundera (Fanmade Remake) for yourself, you can do so on the following platform(s): PC [Gamejolt] Free Game https://gamejolt.com/games/super-thundercats-the-lost-eye-of-thundera/197654 The Song Being Heard at the end of the video is: Music from https://filmmusic.io "Acid Trumpet" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

  16. In this Live Stream from Ready Set Indie Games, TripG87 plays GRIS on PC. In this Gameplay Series TripG87 Begins her journey with GRIS. GRIS is a very beautiful and surrealism game in which you play as a young girl who is going through something very traumatic. As you go through the game you regain the color to your world. Starting from a black and white and gradually and adding other colors to the game. Another cool feature is as the game goes on your dress transforms into cool abilities. The game is really breathtaking and is a game that you don't really rush through. You have to take your time to appreciate the artistic value and the story can be left up to interpretation. The game makes you want to play it more and more and is really hard to put down.

  21. Consoles will be better than PC!? The reign of PC gaming has been the leading argument when it comes to the performance and amount of freedom that comes with PC gaming over console gaming. However, in the current era of technology, there seems to be more reason to believe that consoles may have an advantage in the future of the community than we might have previously expected. The next gen consoles are coming down the pipeline with specs of what we can look forward to when they make their debut, supposedly next year, as it relates to the next PlayStation and Xbox consoles. These consoles have hardware details that would lead one to think that eventually there won't be the need to have a powerful PC build to have an amazing quality for their gaming experience. Hell, some of those levels of quality seem to be redundant, as on a scientific level, the human eye won't even be able to detect the amount of detail that the game is truly capable of presenting. So with that said, where do we draw the line really? Here are some of the reasons why consoles could possibly surpass PCs for gaming consumers: 1. Price People will go out of their way for good-ass bargains, and consoles are almost always the best way to go if you want a cheaper experience for fairly amazing quality. PCs cost you an arm and a leg usually for a build that can run everything proficiently, without fault and additional rendering. You can find cheaper PCs that are efficient, of course, but at the same time you can find a console cheaper too. Not to mention, PCs take a lot of maintenance and upkeeping that not everyone has the time to really deal with. And fair point, if there's no time to deal with it then why the hell did you get it? Not everyone thinks that far ahead believe it or not. The ones that are pre-built are awesome on a surface level, but are really just deceptions for a lot of what they say they can do and handle, so custom built ones are usually the route people go anyway. With a console, all you have to do is plug it in and enjoy the experience, and for a better price. And eventually when the graphical fidelity of consoles gets to a universally satisfying level, consumers probably won't even consider playing on PCs unless it's just their genuine preference. 2. Gaming Environments You can play your console in the comfort of your living room on the couch, your room while in your bed as you lounge, and even outside if you're into that. You can do that with a laptop sure, but the main convenience in my opinion is the use of a controller. People usually just end up linking their console controllers to the PC so that there won't be a need to use the awkward and confusing PC controls that come with a lot of games. You have to sit up the whole time to play the game, and sometimes that shit gets annoying, especially in the late night hours when you just got from doing a bunch of sitting up and standing up in your daily work life as it is. 3. Social Aspects Playing on consoles just links people together much more than playing on PCs, especially when it's in a real-world situation when someone asks you, "What do you play on?" And more often than not, the common person is playing on some type of console these days. You exchange gamer contact info like setting up a date to play and what not, before parting ways and adding them later. The same can be done on PCs as it relates to Steam for example, but rarely outside of the internet has anyone asked me about my PC gaming handle. Even within the consoles, they have sub-communities that you can join that range from whatever music, art, or entertainment you may like. The consoles are venturing into PC-like functions that really may inevitably overshadow those traditional PC commodities. 4. Release Cycles The last generation of consoles was obviously the longest one that we had. Nintendo was the only company really pushing out different iterations of consoles, as they released the Wii U, immediately followed by the Nintendo Switch. The shift from the Ps3 and 360 to our current gen was pretty much a 10-year gap, however, now there's a time-frame of about 5 - 6yrs between consoles, much like how it was before last-gen. The only real difference is that now these consoles will possess the ability to rival PCs on a recognizable level. The more frequent release of these consoles will allow them to upgrade their tech to a level that stays relevant in our time, at least until the next one comes and absolutely shits on the previous one as usual. PCs are constantly expanding every day. It's like the moment you make the perfect build, it's already old news. These consoles come out and stay relevant for years, and they only grow in their profits and interaction. They remake these consoles a couple of times during their periods of being the current gen (Smaller versions, graphical upgraded versions, more affordable versions, etc.). So now that consoles are releasing in more reasonable spans of time, their hardware will start to peak to the level of PCs. 5. Exclusives The consoles have an amazing power over PCs as it relates to exclusive titles. I don't have to sit here and go down the list of amazing titles that plague PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo. I do however, have to mention that PCs literally have no exclusives that seem to urge people to sit there and say, "Damn, I need to get a PC or I'll never get to play that game!" People practically stampede one another to death just to get the newest consoles, not only at their release, but at the release of their exclusives and bundles for those said exclusives. PCs are capable of emulating and receiving files for games that seemingly exclusive for consoles, and that's just how it is, but it doesn't change the fact that they have to do that to play those games in the first place. Simply because people support consoles just out of spite of specific games and not necessarily the specs of the console, but what happens when there's both good exclusive games AND a level of visual appeal that rivals PCs? A win for consoles. 6. PCs release games later Sometimes it takes forever for PCs to get their ports for games. By the time a lot of them even get ports, the game's life is already passed by. Or at least, the hype and excitement for the game is already in the past. So when PCs get it, it's usually around that time when the energy has died out and just remains in a constant motion until something else of the same scale is released. This industry is very fast, and in turn, so are the people who support it. The PC version will roll around and be breathtakingly the shit, and people within the community will inevitably mod the game to make it look even better, but what does any of that mean anymore? Especially if that charm of the PC will also be a charm of the console. The modding aspect is a different topic in itself, but the point is that, if that's the only real selling point and reason to dip your toes into the PC versions, then I don't see it really mattering to the majority of people out there who just want a simple gaming life and to play with their friends. 7. Cross-Platform Gaming More recently within gaming, there has been more acceptance for cross-play between different consoles, and even with PC. Us, as the players of these games, have already wanted this kind of shit since the start of everything, but of course, money is an important resource for each of these gaming giants. Cross-play is just much more convenient for people on the consoles because essentially, regardless of which console you play it on, the specs of the game are not too far off in most cases, so everyone is on the same playing field. PC gamers when cross-playing either have much more of an advantage, or much less of an advantage. It really is a mixed bag and in the realm of the cross-play for a lot of games that I've noticed, PC is the foreigner. And the divide will only grow greater as time goes on, but obviously the PC versions can be limited and optimized specifically for the reason of cross-play. Not many people will care what you play on, as long as you can play together and that's all that matters really, but the level on convenience of a mutual level is always much better for people who play together on consoles. I won't really include the mobile phone and handheld console gamers who are also capable of cross-play for a selection of games currently, but a lot of the same points can be made for them as well. In short, the community of gamers across consoles specifically, are much more interesting avenues for both companies and consumers. 8. Multiplayer This one is sort of a bonus point, but I felt it sandwich perfectly between the social aspects and the cross-platform reasons. Consoles have a much broader appeal when it comes to playing multiplayer games. It's only recently that single-player games are generating the same amount of respect that they once had and deserve, as companies now steer towards where the money is in the long term, the multiplayer. Consoles get exclusive multiplayer stuff all the time, and that alone just boosts the popularity of the consoles over the PC versions. Especially when those incentives actually make a significant amount of difference within the game. A lot of people, like myself, are against that aspect of pay-to-win in games that should be fair for all players to reach through their own efforts and not their money, but from a business perspective it's only going to help the company when more people support it, as they have. Which, most of those people are console players. That's on a deeper level of subject, but from just the perspective of your average gamer, more people are engaging themselves with the multiplayer aspect of consoles where they can form parties and private chats and form their own groups within those games. It can be done on PC, of course, but it's not being done on PC as often as console. There's a parade of reasons why consoles may potentially leave PCs in the dust with their gaming aspects, as well as how there are a parade of reasons why PCs will keep their position over consoles, but the point of this was to give it a look from some of the main, more debated aspects from the console gaming side of things. The idea that consoles could progress further than PCs is not as far-fetched as gaming enthusiasts may see it to be. Only time will tell, but time is already telling us a lot.
