Games With Gold – October 2017

October’s Games With Gold have been announced, and to me, it is a very weak month. I don’t know if they are getting ready for a mega month, or they are running out of things to give away for free.

Each XBOX One game is available for a full month, and each XBOX 360 game, playable through Backward Compatibility, is available for half a month.

Forza Motorsport 7 – First Thoughts

One of the things I like about the Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon games is that they always release a demo before the game is due out so people can see what it is like on a limited track and vehicle base.

I decided to stream my playing of the demo and say my thoughts as I was playing it. The demo allows you to use three vehicles, on three tracks and choose three racers.

This is what I thought.

 

Advice On Streaming And Broadcasting By @MahdDogg

When you play games on the XBOX, PlayStation or Computer, you have the option to broadcast so other people can watch you and interact with you. There are different means of doing so, with the two main ones being Mixer (formerly Beam) and Twitch.

Another broadcaster, MahdDogg, has written a post on advice for broadcasting with what you do and don’t need. With his permission, I am sharing this today in the form of a link.
