N1A Streams: Ghost of Tsushima #2

Now, this is the first time that I’ve streamed this game. I’m counting this as a episode two because I’ve already been working on the story of this game. I just felt like adding it to the rotation. My playthrough is purely for the story. I started watching samurai movies, so I wanted to play this game. The stream, of course, is on Twitch at robertfrowniejr beginning at 11 a.m. central time.

Streamer’s Journal #9

The Mass Effect stream was brief like I said it would be. I did manage to make it off of the Citadel. Now, I’m open to explore the galaxy. There are three different story missions for me to tackle and multiple side missions. I think that I’m going to work on the side missions first.

I also ran a brief Injustice 2 stream with a friend of mine. We ran a few matches together, which is always fun. I’ve gained two new followers due to playing fighting games. I really need to work on my skills and get better. If I do that, I can be more competitive.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989) Review

Tetsuo: The Iron Man. This is nothing like Marvel’s Iron Man!

The Spring of Sci-Fi #16

To say Tetsuo: The Iron Man is one of the most bizarre movies I have ever seen is an understatement. When I initially watched this film over a week ago, I was planning to write a review on it immediately, but after it ended I didn’t have the words to express how I felt. Tetsuo is a truly unique experience, and trying to put into words what is presented on-screen visually is quite difficult. Oftentimes I find myself recounting plot points in my reviews and I feel that undermines the visual element of filmmaking and film viewing. Tetsuo: The Iron Man is not concerned with telling a neat plot; instead, the director aims to create an atmosphere with its visual body horror.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man was released in 1989 and has become a cult classic. The film was directed by Shinya Tsukamoto who directs the film with a frenzied energy which I haven’t seen in many films. The story concerns a metal fetishist, played by director Shinya Tsukamoto, who after getting an infection from inserting a piece of metal into his thigh runs into the streets and is hit by a Business Man, played by Tomorowo Taguchi, and his Girlfriend, played by Kei Fujiwara. The Business Man and his Girlfriend dispose of the body and are haunted by a metal virus that begins taking over different hosts to get revenge on them. This movie is reminiscent of David Cronenberg’s body horror films and David Lynch’s Eraserhead. The events of the movie unfold like a nightmare. Logic and reason are abandoned for madness and insanity. To clarify how insane this movie is: at one point as the Business Man is infected by the metal virus, his penis turns into a power drill.

This is less of a review and more of a lengthy recommendation. Tetsuo is a phenomenal movie that needs to be witnessed. I could tell you plot points or point out how frantic the editing is, but ultimately this is a movie that relies too heavily on surrealism and visuals to adequately explain. Shinya Tsukamoto wonderfully directs this frenzied film and created a cult classic. Tetsuo is a movie that invites multiple re watches and interpretations. Please give this movie a watch if you want to watch something insane and surreal. It is a unique experience that no other movie can give you.

Rating 4/5

N1A Streams: Mass Effect LE #2

I’m going to do a brief stream of Mass Effect Legendary Edition tonight. I meant to do it last night, but didn’t get around to it. I’m going to try to run at least one story mission or wrap up activities at the Citadel. I plan to stream for an hour and keep the rotation alive. I’m starting to gravitate towards fighting games because they’re fun, challenging, and they’re growing my channel. Stream starts at 7:30 p.m. on Twitch at robertfrowniejr.

Streamer’s Journal #8

Yesterday morning, I streamed Injustice 2. I streamed for 2 hours. I gained 1 new follower and plenty of views for the video. I’ve realized before that Injustice 2 needs to be my main game to stream. I think I’m going to start playing it more often now.

The game does hurt my fingers at times, but I’ll get used to it. It’s worth it with people watching. I still have plenty of practice to do to get good at the game. My goal is still to get all characters to level 30 or at least a few. It will take a while, but my gain me new followers/views.

Streamer’s Journal #7

Last night’s stream was L.A. Noire. I did achieve my goal of wrapping up the traffic desk. I can’t wait to work in the homicide division again. The homicide desk is after the traffic desk. So far, I have five-star ratings for all of the desk assignments that I’ve completed. I feel like getting all of the questions correct will give me the full details of the game’s plot. I can’t wait for the next episode.

N1A Streams: L.A. Noire #2

Tonight is the second episode of L.A. Noire! I’m currently on the traffic desk in the game. My goal at the moment is to finish the traffic desk and make it to the homicide desk. I’ve played the game before. This time is just purely enjoying the story and getting all questions correct to enjoy the story. I can’t wait to go to homicide. They have some of the best missions in-game! The stream starts at 7 as usual on Twitch at robertfrowniejr.

Streamer’s Journal #6

Last night, I practiced and played Knockout City. It’s hard for me to stream it at the moment due to the game’s network servers. However, I did manage to make an hour-long clip of my gameplay! I’m still learning the game so I didn’t exactly have the best matchups. I’m practicing learning the different throw mechanics and getting better with catching. The clip should be loaded to my YouTube by the afternoon I hope. I should have more clips soon as season one of the game starts today.

So, earlier, I streamed Fortnite. I’m still far away from achieving my goal of getting the Raven skins. Players have to hit profile level 85 in order to get the costumes. I’m currently at level 66. I hope that I can earn those before the season ends.

I did have a fun stream. I’ve been striving to play more solo matches. I have a blast when I play solo. I earned plenty of top ten finishes today. I also found my favorite drop spot in the game today. I don’t know how I played so well today. I don’t play that much as other people do. I had 2 different matches with 10 eliminations. Very proud of the stream today.
