EYUP! Looks like its time another blog! JoeR247 has survived another week and lives to tell the tale! (Hopefully, touches wood for good luck...)
So, shall we begin? We shall start as always, with a state of play going into the week.
Twitch.tv followers - 688
YouTube Subscribers - 94
Reckon we can reach 700/100 this week? Would be awesome if we can!
Right, enough intro, onto Monday!
Welcome to Monday, chapter one of the week. What happened here... I shall reveal!
(52 points! #BestTeam)
JoeR247 Empires fantasy football team happened. We kicked ass! First week, we are 3rd in the #WeAreHIVE league! Sign of things to come? Lets hope so! CKiiDD promised a prize to the winner...
Urm, thats all the notes say about monday. Lets try a Tuesday!
Tuesday! Non stream day. Shock! I'm sure there will be something on Wednesday!...
Anyway, We had some Admin work to do... Mainly, recap on the !Points leaderboard. Is it still rigged?
(Oh snap, we have a new Champion, RIP Turfy, WobblyRedMan23 is our new leader!)
Oh how times change! Oh wait, it's still rigged AF! No idea how Wobbly managed it... I may remove them all. I think he hacked it...
JoeR247 also found what he may spend his next Twitch payout on...
(The names 247, JoeR247...)
OMG I need it! Only £130... Give me about 5 years before I can save up for it...
Last but not least on tuesday, we got some Post at the JoeR247 Empires... All the way from the US!
(GGAAHHHHH SUB PERK CARD! Puts my crappy stickers to shame! Here it is in my mouth... It's surprisingly tasty...)
A little GGAAHHHHHBLIN saying EY UP! What more could I ask for! There was a personal message on it too, was nice. Too nice to share
That's all folks RE Tuesday! Lets try a Wednesday next!
Oh hello Wednesday! JoeR247 Empires got a bit of an upgrade. NEW SHINY BRIGHT LIGHTS!
(JoeR247 is an Angel, The Halo proves this...)
Shiny new ring light, with a phone mount too! We fancy now! Time to fiddle with it and the camera settings to I dont end up looking like a ghost! Hopefully we will look nice and bright now on future streams :D
8pm! JoeR247 did a stream! On the internet! What did he play? Only LolaSunnyButter's favourite! Fallout 4!
(Time to go kick some Deathclaw ass!)
Welcome back to Boston, 2287! First thing on the agenda, head off to Vault 81, we have a shopping list. The Overseer's guardian! The double shot combat rifle!
However, on the way, we only found a UFO! With an Alien! Turns out Aliens are weak to shots to the head! Also they have fancy weapons! However, the fancy weapon wasnt as fancy as what Joe found next...
We had a side quest, go rescue some pleb settler from a raider hideout. Anyway these raiders seem to have too much time on their hands. Setting up weird teddy displays. Or maybe the teddies are sentient, like in toy story...?
Can I have a read?
Remember that new light? JoeR247 showed it off! SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!
LET THERE BE LIGHT
Remember JoeR247 does a stupid Dab whenever someone clicks the Subscribe button...? It happened again! Turfy made JoeR247 Dab for an 8th time <3 Will he be the first to get the 1 year sub badge???
Turfy with the Sub Dab Hype!
JoeR247 found his way to Vault 81 and a brother and sister, who seemed to have a Jet problem. Watch JoeR247 try help!
Remember we only just Dabbed for Turfy, Well OdiBatterz wanted to see me Dab again... Time for another Sub Dab Hype! <3
OdiBatterz with the Sub Dab Hype!
So 2 Dabs in one stream, Have we ever had 3? Well, we have now! Now LolaSunnyButter wanted a Dab too! SUB HYPE Hat trick! <3
LolaSunnyButter with the Sub Dab Hype!
Anyway, just for Lola, we decided to make a beeline for the Glowing Sea, she just loves the Deathclaws! Well, enroute, we found some evil Deer! Only one thing that they respond to... GRENADES! With fun results!
On the way, we bumped into some lovely Gunners. Remember Gaz from COD:MW1? That important lesson he taught us? It serves us well in the below clip!
Switching to your side arm is faster than reloading!
Glowing Sea found, could we find a Deathclaw for Lola? Turns out yes. And a good one too... or was it
So much for Alpha...
And with that pathetic excuse of an enemy, we ended the stream! Fun stream! Forgot how much I enjoyed Fallout!
Anyway, nothing more to report RE Weds, Lets see a Thursday
THURSDAY! IRL DAY. I HAD FOOD.
(Bella Italia, I am open for sponsorship opportunities)
THAT IS ALL FOR THURSDAY.
Welcome to Friday, Friday JoeR247 was inducted into the Discord Hype Squad House of Brilliance! Thats a mouthful!
(What does it mean?... No idea! But it looks cool!)
Friday, 20:00. You know what happened.
We went live! Back in Need for Speed Underground 2!
(Nos and Neons time, time to race!)
We carried on taking on all comers, destroying all competitors in the almighty Corsa.
One thing of note, we were heading to the next set of victims, when my body decided to give up on me... Bring on the killer Cramp! Thankfully chat had plenty of sympathy for me...
The cramp went away, normal service resumed. Completing more events, winning the cash, getting the upgrades etc etc... Until the AI decided to play dirty...
As the car got more upgrades, and more sexier, more magazines and DVD covers happened. We slapped on a spoiler on the Corsa, which I was always against by the way, which lead to some french people wanting to stick the car on their magazine.
ONLY FOR THEM TO COVER IT UP WITH SOME WOMAN...
Covered up the best bit!
After that, we did some more racing and winning, unlocked the industrial zone, got more performance parts, destroyed some more people in the head to heads and even got a Unique Turbo to boot! The Corsa now appears to have a top speed of 188mph 👀
With all that though, we ran out of time. The stream was over, and so was Friday. Best day of the week coming next...
Welcome to Saturday!
JoeR247 may have spent a few of the upcoming Twitch payouts for the rest of the year today... On what?...
I went to CEX (Preowned Games and electronics shop in the UK) and saw a fancy camera! It was time to up the Empires photography game, and this looks like the tool for the job! Expect to see some fancy ass pictures coming soon on the JoeR247 Instagram and Twitter!
Remember the amazing JoeR247 Cross Stitch which was done by the amazing @thestitchybaker? Well here it is, but in a lovely DSLR shot with some fancy lighting in the background...
(Best photo I'll ever take? Probably...)
That about wraps up Saturday. Pretty chill day spent messing with the new toy. Let's see what Sunday brings!
Sunday. Final day of the week. Let's make it a good one!
Again, the new camera was dragged out, taking more pictures of random stuff I could find in the house!
Remember Subs get Stickers? Check out how good they look on an Xbox controller! All down to the camera. Not me 😂
(Controller at least 28% more cooler with the addition of a sticker)
The photography wasn't done there. Remember the cinema style lightbox which is usually in the background of the stream? Well here it is with the Fallout Vault boy guy doing his thing. Photography is fun!
(All the thumbs up)
Anyway, JoeR247 was scheduled to be at a BBQ at 16:00, so streaming time was limited, but at 14:00, the camera went live!
Back to Blizzard Mountain in Forza Horizon 3! Ready to drift? Ready to crash? You bet!
(Time to become King of the Mountain™)
So today's adventure in Forza, getting the medals from the events to unlock the the grand finale, the King of the Mountain race!
To do this, we needed skill, which as you know by now, JoeR247 has little of. However, my cars had more than enough power to compensate!
You may recall from a while back, we had an event in a rally Mini Cooper which we had to race to the town in the snow. And how many times it went wrong.
Guess what, first time this time! Guess I just got good...?
We hadn't been forced to dab on camera for a while... Until today! ZannyFace smashed the subscribe button and the dab was unleashed again! Much love Zanny! Enjoy those bonus JoeR247 Points and stickers when they get to you!
ZannyFace with the SUB DAB HYPE
Bucket lists, races, speed traps... All completed. There was only one thing left to do. The King of the Mountain event!
How hard can it be? I think that looking back, classical music was a great choice for the race. Sadly, I got abit carried away and decided to ruin it.
Race was won by miles, the Ford Focus is an OP car!
And with that, Blizzard Mountain was complete. Sure there was still a few events I can still finish, but the main bit was done!
This coincided nicely with the stream ending too! We had a BBQ to go eat so we wrapped up and sent a raid onto a fellow WeAreHIVE streamer!
The rest of Sunday was food and drink heavy! Nothing much report!
So there we go, another week in the bag! Not too shabby!
Shall we review? Let's!
Twitch.tv followers - 688 > 693
