JoeR247 Week in Review w/c 16.07.2018

Oh hello! Welcome to the past 7 days! Or if you are reading this several years from now, welcome back to 16.07.2018. Before Zac Effron became the president and declared war on Peru and started World War 6.


I'll start again...

EY-UP! It's that time again, that time where JoeR247 waffles on for around 1500 words about how awesome he is and how amazing the JoeR247 Empire is!

As always, lets recap on where the left off last week...

Twitch.tv followers - 594

YouTube Subscribers - 66

Will we get the next Twitch milestone this week? WE WANT 600!

Anyway, onto the week!


So Monday, the beginning of the week!

New week and new addition to the stream overlays! About time I finally acknowledged and rewarded Tippers for their generosity!

So here it is! We have a Latest Tip overlay!

(I dare someone to replace BekahBear101 :D )

Anyway, 8pm came around. Did we stream? No...

9pm? YES! We had an emergency at JoeR247 Empires! Our Freezer died... so we had to run out and get a replacement! There goes the Twitch money well spent haha

So 9pm! We went live! What game?

(It's Corsa Power time baby!)

Need for Speed Underground 2! Lets go!

So this was the 2nd stream of Need For Speed Underground 2. As you may know, its a Vauxhall Corsa only run...

Want to see how cool the Corsa is at this point?

(It's just like my IRL Vauxhall Corsa I used to have! Well, maybe the colour... Not the rest.)

So we set off becoming the number one street racer in the city in the Corsa. However, What is a JoeR247 stream without some awesome glitches?

JoeR247 also declared that anyone who doesn't enjoy this game is a traitor to the Empire. If you don't like it. I suggest you leave at this point

https://clips.twitch.tv/DaintyIncredulousDragonfruitGOWSkull If you didn't love this game...

JoeR247 was made to dab again... This time by the wonderful yaGirlCherry! Much love for your support to my weird internet hobby <3

https://clips.twitch.tv/EvilAcceptableStarDAESuppy yaGirlCherry with the SubDab Hype!

This stream I did something unusual. I opened a can of Monster! This immediately summoned TheSuperScot to the stream. (I will have to do that more often I feel)

Anyway, They asked me what flavour it was. Turns out it was Lewis Hamilton Flavour... But what did it taste like?

https://clips.twitch.tv/CorrectSmellyClamMrDestructoid Tastes just like his Helmet

LittleNachos turned up and had some kind words about their favorite streamer... Allegedly its me... :D

https://clips.twitch.tv/AttractiveMiniatureClipsmomGingerPower Who me?

It then turned out that JoeR247 had to Dab once again... Twice in a stream. You guys are trying to kill me! This time thanks to the always lovely little OdiBatterz!

And with that, we ended the stream. We ticked off one sponsor, added a second Corsa to the garage and unlocked more of the map! The car is pretty dam awesome too!


Tuesday JoeR247 went on a spending spree!

1st stop, QWERTEE! JoeR247 has been buying more T-Shirts!

(3 more to go till I get a free one! - I'm gonna need more wardrobe space...)

Oh speaking of Qwertee... It turns out I have a referral code now! Feel free to use it here!

2nd stop on the shopping trip... It was Amazon prime day/week! They had an offer on a gaming mouse... But not just any Gaming mouse. An RGB mouse! The Logitech G502!

£35.99, in the basket, Checked out, BOOM Eyes on the post now for it to arrive!

(My all RGB setup will soon be complete! Headset, keyboard, case and now mouse!)

Something fascinating also happened on Tuesday... The famous Racing driver, Tanner Foust, Liked the below post on Instagram... THE FAMOUS RACING DRIVER, TANNER FOUST, LIKED ONE OF MY POSTS!

(Does this make me famous by association now?...)

Once the amazement of that had passed by, we ended Tuesday! Coming next, Wednesday! AKA the day we get to lift the Two Point Hospital embargo!


OMG GUYS! Today is the day we get to talk about Two Point Hospital!

Lets skip to the main bit! 15:00 happened My developer interview went live and the viewers came rolling in!

(Me and the game! And Sonic! And Outside Sega!)

If you missed it somehow, you can watch it now right here in the blog! I spent ages editing the footage on this so you best enjoy it :-P

(Shame about the audio quality... That's what you get when you use a phone for a professional recording...)

Also Two Point Hospital revealed something awesome! The games release date!

30th August 2018! I totally already knew that... I managed to keep my lips sealed!

However, You don't have to wait that long to see more footage of the game! Why is that you ask?

(We're streaming Two Point non stop baby!)

The amazing people at Two Point Studios sent me a preview Steam Key for the game! I now can stream the same build I played at SEGA non stop until the games full release date!

Massive thank you to them! Make sure you go check the game out and pre-order it for its 30.08.2018 release date! It should still be on 10% off right now aswell!

So yeah. Guess what we streamed Wednesday night?...

Need for Speed! No not really. Two Point Hospital! Got to make the most of being one of the few streamers with access to it!

So 8pm came around... And JoeR247 played Dress up!

(Dr JoeR247 is ready to stream!)

Right, time to build!

We set of in the first Hospital, Hogsport. Hospital 1 of 4 in the demo! Lets get the 1st star of the game!

We started as we meant to go on, with terrible puns and Golden toilets! I honestly didn't mean this pun I swear!

https://clips.twitch.tv/ExuberantInnocentDogePogChamp "Bog" Standard toilet

We saw a very happy man leaving the hospital having been cured. We clicked on his to see what his name was. We then saw the beauty of the games Random name Generator... If you don't laugh at this persons name, you have no sense of humor :D https://clips.twitch.tv/AstuteCuriousLlamaHumbleLife What's his name?....

I used all my hospital building experience from Theme Hospital and put it to good use as we got the first Star of the game on the very first hospital! Congrats me! We will ignore the bit about removing my file from the bin however...

https://clips.twitch.tv/FragileFriendlyMeerkatKeepo 1 Star Hype!

1 star achieved! Time to move on and setup another hospital in the JoeR247 Empires! Next stop, Lower Bullocks! (That isnt a swear word...)

First thing first though, this hospital wasn't big enough for my liking. And there was a perfect bit of land, wasted by a children's playground sadly.

https://clips.twitch.tv/ConsiderateAmorphousWitchOMGScoots I wouldn't demolish a playground....


Anyway, remember the awesome name generator system? It happened again...

https://clips.twitch.tv/BombasticTriangularGnatVoteYea Clive McBoatFace !!!

Who wouldn't want to be treated by Dr McBoatFace?

As the stream was drawing to a close, we were super close to completing the 1 star requirement on Hospital #2! Could we do it?

https://clips.twitch.tv/PuzzledSavageTubersMrDestructoid Not a bad way to win the level!

There we go! Poor bloke gets swung about by a big magnet, loses the pan on his head, and we get the shiny gold star!

Also we wrapped the stream up there! Not too bad for an exclusive!

Also, during the stream, something amazing happened. WE HIT 600 followers! Thank you for all your support on the stream everyone!

(Next stop... 700!)

So that was wednesday. What an amazing day! Up next, Thursday!


Today was a day for getting lots of items in the post! First and foremost, a little secret project I had @TheStitchyBaker working on... An official #WeAreHIVE cross stitch! Look how awesome it it!

(Cross stitch goals - Shout out to The Stitchy Baker for making it for us at #WeAreHIVE!)

2nd item in the post... The Logitech G502 from Amazon! We have more RGB at JoeR247 Empires! Sad to retire the trusty G700 mouse, but RGB is life!


JoeR247 also ended up in a toy shop. JoeR247 saw LEGO. Star Wars LEGO! Safe to say money well spent! I may IRL stream the building process... Watch this space....



Stream day! Guess what we are playing today guys and girls...

(Oh yeah. You know I'm going to milk this advanced copy of Two Point Hospital for all its worth!)

This time, we are going to the 3rd Hospital! Flottering! And going to learn about the training mechanic in the game! Time to get some Top Doc's and Nurses!

So, Flottering, and we have ingame reward currency to burn! Time to decorate... and test my vision...

https://clips.twitch.tv/SteamyUgliestSproutAliens Should have gone to Specsavers

As we expand our hospital, we start to see weirder and weirder conditions... Lightheadedness, Pan's Lab and now Jest Infection...

I think that Jest Infection is the cruelest looking cure out of the lot so far! Psychological torture. I guess it's for a good cause though...

https://clips.twitch.tv/ArtsyEmpathicOxKevinTurtle Clowning around...

Not long after, we got the 1 Star required and moved onto Mitten University hospital! The hospital were you have to deal with cold temperatures and having poorly trained staff... What could go wrong?

Sadly, I am not perfect. My hospital empire is still a work in progress. Sadly people die. However, I don't appreciate it when my janitors walk over their corpses. Show some respect guys!

https://clips.twitch.tv/ArborealVainPorcupineNerfBlueBlaster Not respecting the dead...

So, Mitten achieved, sadly the last Hospital on the demo, but we still have a long way to go! Hopefully we can get to 3 Stars on all 4 hospitals before the release date on 30.08.2018!

That was Friday! Come back for some Saturday next!


Quiet day today. Loads of boring IRL chores. Only one thing of note, I made my logo in the #WeAreHIVE branding...

(Why didn't I think of this back in November Ha!)

That's all for now. How about Sunday?


Sunday we discovered something incredible. Look at the below...

(5k mins viewed past 28 days!)

The average watch time used to sit at 500-600. 10x increase!

The cause?

Probably the Two Point Hospital playlist! Want to see it? Click here!

Remember what the Youtube Sub count was at the beginning of the week? 66? Yeah, we smashed that! :-D

8pm happened. JoeR247 went live! Guess what game... again...

(Welcome to JoeR247, Home of Two Point Hospital!)

Of course we are riding the hype train of Two Point! Shall we see what happened next?

Well we had one goal! Fix and get 1 star on Mitten! Let's do this!

However, before we began. We had to show off the recent Amazon purchase! £4 worth of Stethoscope! I'm going to get some weird crap in my recommended items now... :D

https://clips.twitch.tv/AlluringSourParrotCorgiDerp Cosplay in full force

We carried on with Mitten, the research hospital, by actually making it a research hospital! WE BUILT OUR FIRST RESEARCH DEPARTMENT! Turns out its quite fun!

https://clips.twitch.tv/PuzzledHedonisticLettuceMikeHogu Research is fun

We had some trouble with this hospital. The temperature was proving troublesome, and it turned out that Hygiene was causing us some bother! We unlocked the hand sanitisers, plonked some down and started curing people instead of killing them! All in all, we then managed to cure a new condition which we had successfully researched! Grey Anatomy! This then caused the below clip!

https://clips.twitch.tv/ResourcefulConsiderateTireTBCheesePull 1 Star Hospital!

Boom! 1 star on all the hospitals in the demo! Time to go back, take the new unlocks back and 3 star them all!

10-15 minutes later, we had our first 3 Star Hospital on Hogsport! GG me!

That was the stream over! Another amazing stream of an amazing game!

With that, we also wrapped up another week!

So, productive week is an understatement. Shall we check the stats?

Twitch.tv followers - 594 > 616

YouTube Subscribers - 66 > 80

Dam! Two Point Hospital is working wonders for JoeR247 Empires! More to come!

Anyway. That's the past 7 days. Rejoin me next week for more words about that set of 7 days
