Oh hello there! Welcome to the latest and greatest JoeR247 blog!
Its been a while hasn't it! My bad! JoeR247 was AWOL most of last week so not alot to report on! I'll sum it up simply with this photograph collage.
(Blue skies in the UK, who knew it was possible?)
The UK was unusually sunny, so JoeR247 took the weekend off and went on a short holiday to catch some sun!
Sadly at bit too much sun so JoeR247 turned into a Lobster...
(Dem Tanlines. Don't forget the sun cream kiddies... LOL!)
Before that however, we had a brand new Youtube video to upload and show off to the world! Thats right! JoeR247 had a brand new Clip Montage video to post! (Who knew I was so clip-able?)
(Version 3.0 of JoeR247 ready to go! Click the image to watch it now!)
Finally learnt some proper editing tricks so we finally have some nice transitions between the clips now to make it even greater than ever! By V12.0 of these Clip montages we may have something worth watching!
Last week, we had a heartbreaking moment at JoeR247 Empires. One of the Computer monitors gave up the will to live and died on me.
(Press F to pay Respects)
After nearly 10 years loyal service. the Righthand monitor had to be retired. Sad day for all involved at the channel.
Monday we had some good news though. The postman delivered a very big box off at JoeR247 empires. 50 points to anyone who can guess what it is...
(The JoeR247 sticker was put on by me... Not Amazon...)
24 inches of sexiness! Shall we see what it looks like when its not in a box?
(ITS SO PRETTY! Even with that wallpaper...)
Look at the bezel, or the lack of it! Long overdue upgrade. The only issue is that the mounting points don't line up with the old monitor so they arn't level on my screen arms :(
Looks like I may need to get a 2nd matching one...
So that was Monday!
Tuesday happened next!
Tuesday JoeR247 was itching to put his face back on the internet and play games terribly, but didnt know what to play... So he let the lovely people of Twitter do the hard bit for him!
What did they come up with?
(Battle of the F's. Fallout beating Forza! I did not expect that!)
Tuesday JoeR247 had abit of a shake up of the Follower alert sound. Made it abit more "JoeR247". Lets hope we get another Follower on Twitch and then keep your ears open to see what madness JoeR247 has come up with now...
Anyway, back to JoeR247 and his streaming nonsense. The Clock hit 20:00 and the channel went live!
(Time to go shoot some ghouls and mutants again!)
So what was the plan for the stream? Well, we had an mission at The Castle. So we set off from Sanctuary (The other side of the map...) ready to go see what the problem was this time...
Usual shenanigans happened on route to the Castle, including JoeR247 getting distracted by every explorable building and gun fight he could find...
LolaSunnyButter popped up in chat discussing phone screen sizes, which then led to JoeR247 saying something which could be very easily taken out of context...

We made it to the castle in one piece eventually, but viewers reported some sound issue so JoeR247 had to quickly check things out... leading to a weird techno remix of his voice... Warning, this may mess with your head...

Anyhoo, we sorted out Ronnie Shaw at the castle and we got some shiny artillery to add to our ever growing arsenal. I like it when things go boom...
Next stop, the long overdue visit to Diamond City. We are only 2 days into the game so I guess we should go see what all the fuss is about.
Before we got there however, it seems that we had triggered the Automatron DLC... So evil killer robots started to spawn around the world... Guess what happened next...
Thank god for Psycho Jet...
So we reached the time limit on the stream, having reached Hangman's Alley in one piece! Another stream of Fallout 4 Survival Mode with no deaths. JoeR247 is OP.
Today JoeR247 went to the cinema. JoeR247 saw Deadpool 2. JoeR247 enjoyed Deadpool 2. Go see Deadpool 2
(They did not pay me for this glowing endorsement...)
Anything else to report from Wednesday? No? Ok, fast forward to Thursday!
Thursday has arrived!
JoeR247 bought a new game today. Well, he says "New". It's actually from 2007. (Why does JoeR247 never play brand new games?...)
Want to see what it was/How cool the YouTube thumbnail will be?
(Only the best games at JoeR247)
Yes your eyes arn't playing tricks on you. JoeR247 will be playing the single player campaign of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1. And 2. And 3
The story and game play of this series of games has always held a close place in JoeR247's heart, so is very excited to stream them! On Hardened because nobody wants to see me die 14,592,989 times on Veteran difficulty...
Thursday was both a sad and happy day at the channel. Why?
These below Sub emotes. They have been retired. Press F to pay respects in the comments.
(They served us well. But time has come for something abit more unique for you to spam in my channel)
The happy news? New emotes are on the way! Assuming Twitch approve them... Hmm... I may regret this and be left with no emotes at this rate...
Shall we look at the stats on the Bronze Silver and Gold emotes on final time?
(The slots use and your spam did a great job on the numbers. JoeR247 thanks you all.)
Impressive stats for the admittedly crappy emotes. I cant wait to reveal the new ones! Fear not fans of !slots. The game will be back with the new emotes once approved ready for you to spam to your hearts content!
Thursday also saw the first round of The British Nerd Network Rocket League e-Sports competition. JoeR247 teamed up with friend of the channel Kyr0ki to take on Franchize1140 and Karlembo on 2v2's, best of 3 matches.
Ky-Joe-Ki vs Just Normal Nerds.
Who would triumph in this round?
(Safe to say that we won with all the credit going to Kyr0ki. I am forever in his debt for carrying me)
Next stop, the winners trophy. :D
So that, was Thursday. Next stop... Friday!
FRIDAY! Its finally here! Let me tell you all about it!
Do you remember being a kid, and you probably only had 1 game at a time to play on, and then you completed it. Then you had nothing to play.
Safe to say that thanks to 1TB hard drives and years of Steam Summer sales mean that JoeR247 will never have that problem...
(Pick a game, any game)
Just a summary of the current installed games JoeR247 has to offer. Anything take your fancy? Drop a comment on this post!
Friday was another stream day! That thing I do on the internet? Well it happened again! What did JoeR247 play? Lets see...
(JoeR247 ready to kick ass and take some names as he saves the world alongside Captain Moustache)
8pm happened, JoeR247 went live and was given a fully automatic rifle. What could go wrong...
What could go wrong, was the newly implemented !deathcount command on Nightbot... This was gonna get ugly...
We started off 8 minutes into the stream, with something very good. Ementalo making JoeR247 dab on the internet is always a wonderful thing :D <3
https://clips.twitch.tv/AmusedSuperAntelopeBCouch Ementalo with the Sub Dab Hype!
So off we set to Russia, with Captain Moustache and Gaz, with me as the "FNG" Soap... Lets say I don't think they liked me based on the below clip...
https://clips.twitch.tv/KnottyFuriousAppleNotLikeThis A warning would have been nice...
Sometimes in video games, you just have to go all in. Surprisingly this paid off for JoeR247 for a change!
During this level, we made good friends with Sergeant Grigg's, and his fine taste in music...
JoeR247 also found that TV and Film had being lying to him for years. Cars are not safe to hide behind when under fire... Anything petrol related is probably a bad choice...
https://clips.twitch.tv/MushyCrispyJalapenoSpicyBoy Cars make terrible cover...
This stream is also when I discovered I no longer like doggos. Well done COD.
https://clips.twitch.tv/MotionlessDeliciousBeeBCouch Bad Doggo
The time then came where I regretted playing this game on Hardened. The deaths were really racking up now...
https://clips.twitch.tv/KitschyOpenWolfSwiftRage Death Streak...
If any future army commanders are watching, when WW3 inevitably happens, DON'T EVER PUT ME IN CHARGE OF AN AC-130 OR DRONE....
https://clips.twitch.tv/ObservantKathishCaribouTheRinger Friendly fire...
So we ended the stream, serveral missions under our belt, many bad guys in bodybags. How was the new !deathcount looking?... Hopefully less than 5?
(Oh... Lets move swiftly on...)
So that was Friday. Lets reconvene on Saturday!
Saturday was a pretty relaxed day, but JoeR247 wasn't missing out on some premium advertising time! He had got access to a fairly posh camera, and decided the best thing to do with it was take photos of his logo...
(Sub perk stickers look :fire: :OKhand: :sunglasses: )
Saturday was a very important day if you are a fan of Football! (Soccer if you insist on calling it that...)
So JoeR247 spent the day in the pub watching it. It was White team vs Red team day. White team won. GO WHITE TEAM
(It's not apple juice...)
Checks notes... Cannot find any more entries for Saturday... Moves onto Sunday!
SUNDAY WAS NEXT!
Sunday was a stream day. Can you guess what the stream would be? What does JoeR247 stream on most Sundays?
(If you guessed this correctly, pat yourself on the back from me.)
That's right, Sunday JoeR247 was craving some Speed so back to Australia we went... But know as you know it...
HOT WHEELS TIME!
Remember as a kid you'd have Hot Wheels cars on the orange tracks, and they would go too fast and fly off said track and then end up under the sofa out of reach and never to be seen again? Imagine that in Forza, and with JoeR247 at the wheel...
What could go wrong?
Looking at the amount of clips we got... Alot...
Shall we have a look?
Starting as we mean to go on, here is a clip of JoeR247 in his Ford GT, going off the track.
https://clips.twitch.tv/PoliteShinyRuffBatChest Just a little jump and HE'S GONE
Once again, in the Ford GT, experiencing the physics which can occur when going over bumpy wavy plasic roads at high speed. Thankfully I had the "ability" to get away with this one...
https://clips.twitch.tv/EnergeticColorfulButterBibleThump WARNING: Bumpy road ahead
Remember when Forza came out and it was supposed to be the next big thing in Driving Simulation. Then Hot Wheels happened... Once again. JoeR247 nailed the landing. OP AF...
https://clips.twitch.tv/InnocentCrypticGorillaTF2John And he lands it
I was debating leaving this clip out... but that would not be fair for you, loyal reader of this Blog. Here is JoeR247 being an idiot. Again.
https://clips.twitch.tv/ColdbloodedSaltyBaconPoooound And across the li- oh shi..
Remember I did alot of falling off the track in the Ford GT? Well this clip is totally different! No... I still fall off the track. Just this time its in the Pagani Zonda... Ft. the high pitched voice of Barnes II
https://clips.twitch.tv/AmazingAgileCaterpillarPeteZaroll Falling off with style
Again, the next clip is totally different again! I mean. Its me falling in the sea, but in a BMW this time! I bet you are wondering why I bother with racing games at this point but I assure you, I did win some races...! (Until FormattedToast and GoliathanGaming turned up...)
https://clips.twitch.tv/NastyBelovedCockroachMrDestructoid Just JoeR247 Things
How about a clip which isnt me failing? How about something cool. Well I have something which may fit the bill...
Just like one of the Ken Block stunt video's right?
Speaking of FormattedToast... JoeR247 got abit stuck and needed some help. FormattedToast to the rescue right?
https://clips.twitch.tv/HappyInquisitiveMooseLitFam Assistance Required
That summed up the stream basically. JoeR247 and friends playing Forza Hot Wheels. Staying on the track at least 60% of the time. Good fun was had by some.
Most exciting of all, we got a level up wheelspin. What did we win...?
(OMG! YAS! OORAH! I'm sure by know you know how much I love the Ford GT. To win the Horizon Edition with the credit boost is incredible!)
In promising news. We streamed for 3 hours, no crashes, no BSOD's. Maybe the JoeR247 computer is my friend again. Lets hope it keeps up the good work!
And with that. We wrapped up the stream. We went and raided The British Nerd Network and their "The Geekend" talk show stream and then called an end to the week.
It has been a good week. Fallout fun, COD chaos and Forza Frolicking.
Shall we look back at the stats?
Twitch.tv ended the week with 538 followers. YouTube ended with 54 Subscribers. Positive week on both platforms which is always amazing to see!
*Sunday update. Still no Twitch emotes approved yet. Fingers crossed for next week... I miss the JoeR247 branded slots...*
Anyway, that's 2234 words. If you made it this far, I salute you. Leave a comment on this post if you did. I bet nobody will. Prove me wrong!
Anyway, I'll speak to you guys again... probably next week? Deal!
