Interview with You Tube’s Swoozie

Local You Tube vlogger Adande Thorne aka ( Swoozie ) hits 2 million subscribers.

Swoozie resides in Orlando, FL, which is where he started his profession gaming career in CGS (Championship Gaming Series North American League) where they paid him to fly around the county and play videogames to compete for $10, 000. At that time he was still working for the “Hard Rock Café”, and people kept coming up to him asking all these questions on how his job works with CGS. To resolve this problem Swoozie decided to make a You Tube channel to tell people what he has been up in his life.

Swoozie had no idea that his channel would blow up this big from starting with only 55 subscribers his first year on You Tube to now having his own panel’s at “Playlist Live” in Orlando, FL. In an interview with Swoozie at Playlist Live he has given some tips on how to create a successful You Tube channel. ImageOne would have to create a video that stands out from the rest, something no one’s has ever seen before. Another important thing when it comes to making a You Tube video is have a colorful thumb nail, having that really catches the viewer’s eyes towards clicking that video. Video editing is just as important as developing content, having the right editing software helps the video develop into a master piece. Swoozie edits on “Final Cut Express” which is $199, if committed one could make a successful career with a You Tube channel.

The next event Swoozie is going to attend is Evo which is a gaming competition held in Las Vegas. The game he’ll be playing there is “Killer Instinct”, a fighting game on the Xbox One. In an interview with Swoozie he was ask on what gaming console he preferred he said “I mean the thing is, I’m a gamer. So a lot of people now like to segregate the whole thing, the thing is were all gamers, and it doesn’t matter if we play on Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, PC, were all on the same team”. Strong words from a You Tube vlogger can go a long way, and this hate that gamers have with each other is just plain dumb.

Swoozie started one of the first let’s play channels called “Press Start” with You Tube vlogger Michelle Phan. That helped his personal channel get a lot of traffic. Adande never thought that his little You Tube channel could turn into this huge media outlet. Now he is making a living doing what he loves, and that is whatever he wants it to be. One day he could be telling a story about his past than post it on You Tube, or another day he could be playing video games for money. It just goes to show with You Tube anyone could make a living doing anything they want with a loyal subscriber base.

Game Review: South Park the Stick of Truth

If you are a fan of South Park you are going to fall in love with this game. South Park the Stick of Truth was released on March 4th. The game was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, and was heavily watch over by South Park creators Matt Stone, and Trey Parker. The creators of South Park had a problem coming up with a release date for the game, because they felt like the game has to be perfect, so they were not going to release it till it was done. It was very well worth it too, the game is filled with amazing material. The story is what anyone could expect from South Park, and that is lots of toilet humor which is not a bad thing. South Park is known for its out rages humor, but going into the game knowing what to expect the player is in for a great night of laughs.

The new kid stumbles across the show’s most iconic characters Cartmen, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny while they are role playing a medieval quest about a holy object named the Stick of Truth. Whoever controls the stick controls the universe, which is said many times throughout the game. The whole game is the neighborhood kids playing make believe in Cartmen’s backyard, and from there the story unfolds. The games does a great job using cameos from previous old season of the show, even characters favorites like Mr. Hanky, and Professor Chaos. Throughout playing the campaign the player will expect to run into South Park’s standard well written comedy, with superb animations. The game looks just like an episode of South Park. In the game the player will feel like they are playing the show. The entire game is on a huge free roam map, the player can literally walk where ever they want in the game. It is pretty cool to actually go explore the show and visit well known land marks, like Cartmen house, or Al Gore’s secret base for the capture of the Man Bear Pig. The gameplay fighting style is turn base, which means everyone takes turns attacking.

Photo owned by: http://www.gamewpp.comIt is very easy to level up in the game, and there are items throughout the game to help in prove your charters fighting. The game is made to look poorly done,  at the same time that makes the game look great. The story base in South Park is filled with wild wacky stories, and to just have a chance to play, and experience these stories is just a thrill. If you are looking for a game with countless amount of hours of comedy South Park the Stick of Truth will be perfect to play, but keep in mind this game is not meant for everybody, and it takes quite a bit of an open mind to fully enjoy it.
