Our good friend Jett is hosting a 24-hour live stream for the charity Extra Life today at 8 am EST. Check out his Twitch channel at InThirdPerson, where the streaming will be happening. We’ll be popping in at some point to join in the fun to chat and play a few games as well!

Extra Life is a charity organization for sick kids in hospitals. It’s a wonderful organization with a great following and is certainly popular in the gaming atmosphere. We’ve heard of this before and have thought of doing something to help out down the line. Jett is doing his part and is trying to raise $400 for Extra Life. To reach that goal, as Kris said, he’s doing a 24-hour live stream today.

So if you enjoy video games (which, hopefully you do, considering that’s the main focus of this particular blog) and helping out a fantastic cause, come and chat for a while on Jett’s live stream today. We’ll also be around, so come and join us! Spreading the word around also helps, if you’re able to do that!

rachmii
We’ll be in the chat as much as we can and we’ll also make a remote appearance on the stream. We’d love to have you there. It’ll be for a good cause and it’ll be a lot of fun!

Come join us on Jett’s Twitch stream at Twitch.tv/InThirdPerson and chat! We’ll see you soon!

Twitch Update

If you follow us on Twitch you’ve probably realized that we skipped this past week of streaming. This was due to wi-fi issues that effected our desktop computer – our main streaming hub. Not only were we not able to stream but we also couldn’t really work either. The desktop holds Photoshop and Illustrator and while the programs themselves still worked, the saved images wouldn’t even sync onto Dropbox to be transferred to our laptops.

It’s been a weird week and long due to this issue – you never really notice how much you use and need wi-fi until it’s gone.

Long story short, we finally figured out the issue was only out of the wi-fi for about three or four days. However, neither of us were home Friday night so even though we were able to stream, we couldn’t.

We’ll be starting fresh with streams again next week starting on Monday. As a reminder, here’s our tentative schedule:

Monday night – Kris solo stream
Wednesday morning – Rachel solo stream
Friday night – Double Jump stream

In the meantime, you can give us a follow over on Twitch so you know when we go live and you can also check out some of the past live streams we’ve done.

Also, we wanted to take this moment to give a few shout outs to people:

Take My Star — Yungtown

Happy Wednesday, everyone! As you may have noticed, we’re really enjoying Super Mario Party on the Nintendo Switch and this month’s music reflects that.

We’ve showcased Yungtown on here before with Settle It in Smash. This time around we’re showing his Mario Party game rap “Take My Star.” It’s a catchy song, with Rachel and I occasionally bursting out into the chorus while playing Mario Party.

While Yungtown hasn’t uploaded on YouTube in a while, his music is enjoyable on that platform, iTunes,  and Spotify. He does stream on Twitch as well, if you wanted to check him out there. Either way, we hope you enjoy “Take My Star!”

Double Jump is on Twitch!

That’s right, Double Jump is officially on Twitch! Yay!

djtwitch

We’ve actually streamed for the past couple of weeks now, getting into a small routine while figuring out technical difficulties, but we’re learning and want to share us playing awesome (and sometimes not so awesome) games with you all!

You can find us at Twitch.tv/xDoubleJump! Please give us a follow if you’d like to see what kind of shenanigans we get up to and because, hey, we want to talk more with you guys too. We’re planning on streaming at least three times a week, trying to swing a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule — Kris on Mondays, Rachel on Wednesdays, and both of us on Fridays. We’re on the east coast of the US (EST), so Mondays and Fridays will probably be sometime during the evenings while Wednesdays will most likely be in the mornings.

(Also, it’s Rachel’s birthday today, so give her some extra love!)

Flashback Friday: Disney’s The Lion King

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday, everyone! Summer is ending!

If you haven’t gotten the chance to check it out yet, Rachel and I have been exploring with streaming on Twitch. One such game that we bought and downloaded from Steam was Disney’s The Lion King.

djflashbacklionking

Rachel and I have been exploring our Steam accounts more often lately, and a couple of gems that Rachel found recently were a few SNES games from Disney — The Lion King and Aladdin.

The Lion King for the SNES was released way back during the holidays of 1994 in North America, taking advantage of the movie’s commercial success, and it sold fairly well despite the negative reviews attached to it. The difficulty levels spike between stages, going back and forth between being hard for beginner players and repetitively simple enough for advanced players. Nevertheless, it was praised for its graphics, music, and voice acting, even if the levels and gameplay weren’t found to be up to par.

Replaying this game with keyboard controls brought back a wave of nostalgia as we set up the game, and Rachel and I realized that we had never beaten the SNES version as kids. It was a trip going back to this game, remembering secrets and the way through the levels, while also needing to look up certain mechanics when we believed we were stuck (damn you, Elephant Graveyard level). The controls are also wicked precise, especially during a few levels when Simba needs to swing from ledge to ledge, and were the cause of many curses.

With that said, we still haven’t beaten the game — in all honesty, we haven’t even reached the stages where you can play as adult Simba — because that’s how good we are at old school video games that do not have a save game mechanic. Still, it’s a great throwback to our childhood, and we’re looking forward to trying our hand at it again.

Have you played The Lion King? What did you think?

Friday Favorites: Pokemon Regions

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

Recently, we found out that Twitch will be marathoning all of the Pokemon seasons and movies. Considering I used to watch the show when I was in elementary school twenty or so years ago, I’ve only seen a handful of the seasons before losing time and interest. I may use this 10-month marathon as an excuse to revisit the anime.

Kalos

Kalos was a breath of fresh air after Unova, which is probably my least favorite region. Kalos went back to Pokemon’s nature roots, filling the region with forests and smaller towns with plenty of secrets to find and explore. While the story wasn’t anything special, in my opinion, I did find the little friendship circle that your character has with the other beginning trainers to be adorable.

Kanto

Kanto will always have a special place in my heart because it was where my love of Pokemon began. The layout and adventure around the region was a treat, with something new around every corner when I first played Pokemon Yellow. I’m ridiculously excited for the Let’s Go titles, looking forward to seeing how well they updated the Kanto region.

Hoenn

Hoenn probably has some of my favorite Pokemon to date, and the layout of the region isn’t bad at all. While I’m not thrilled with most water levels in games, the Dive mechanic was interesting, as was using it to head toward the last gym in the game. The mountain and story was also a favorite of mine, especially in Emerald.

Johto

Johto was fantastic in that it was a successful sequel, if you will, to the Kanto region. Both the games and the anime were awesome with their new Pokemon and adventures. Instead of being saturated with new mechanics, the Johto games simply had a new region to explore, a new story with the legendary Pokemon, and a couple of new types to help balance the roster. The Johto anime theme songs were also some of the best.

What are your favorite Pokemon Regions?

Samsung CGH90 Monitor

Double Jump Kris MiiRachel and I are generally Nintendo girls, having grown up with the consoles (and having the adults around us always call video games “Nintendo” no matter what kind of games they were). Fairly recently, though, I’ve been wanting to get more into the PC gaming scene, having used to play a couple of MMORPGs and now looking more into Twitch and games like Stardew Valley and PlayerUnknown’s Battleground. With that, I’ve been more interested in PC gaming accessories, like pretty monitors…

Gamers generally want to be as immersed as possible in their video game worlds. Take a look at all the virtual reality consoles and games that are on the market nowadays.

Recently a friend of mine told me about this gaming monitor from Samsung, the Samsung CHG90. This massive screen that would keep you in the game without the need for virtual reality headsets. Just take a look at this baby:

samsung-chg90-49-inch-qled-monitor-4

Spanning about 49-inches wide, it’ll probably be difficult to just to find the space for the monitor, but isn’t it gorgeous? Imagine the expanse of Minecraft’s landscape or being able to keep an eye on your surroundings in PlayerUnknown’s Battleground. It’s pretty pricey, though, coming at a whopping $1499.99 — for that amount of money, you could probably get a nice dual, or even triple, monitor set up.

It’s a nice dream for a P.C. gamer!

What do you think of this computer monitor? Too much or would you like a chance to experience how it would work with one of your favorite PC games?
