Good News Gaming: DJ Shaq And The Wholesome Streamer

Plus, an elderly gamer that is preaching the benefits of playing in old age.

11 Comments

It's the end of another week and we want you to start the weekend right, so we've got a bunch of cool, funny, and downright heartwarming stories from around the video game world for you. Good News Gaming is all about uplifting the spirit and putting a little spring in your step, so give the episode a watch and hopefully it'll leave with a warm and fuzzy feeling.

The breakout star of this week's selection of stories is a streamer that goes by brohx_. He usually spends his time broadcasting himself doing intricate wood carvings, but the lad is also a big fan of video games. He loves to play World of Warcraft and, due to his modest laptop, usually sticks to the classic version, which is less demanding on hardware. However, brohx_ stepped into the spotlight when a video of him telling people not to subscribe to him--and even trying to figure out whether he can return subs--was broken out and circulated. It's so wholesome and his desire to ensure people take advantage of the free entertainment he provides was incredibly sweet.

The best part of the story is another Twitch streamer dedicated one of their broadcast to raising money that would be used to get brohx_ a PC to play more games. Of course, the humble lad protested, but the community was too set on showing him some love. It's a wonderful story. Also, he likes My Hero Academia--what a lovely person.

Another amazing gaming story comes from Hamako Mori, better known as the Gamer Grandma. The elderly gamer runs her own YouTube channel and is telling the world about the benefits of gaming, specifically for the older generation. She's really into GTA 5--good on her!

Zoom can be a bit dull when you've got non-stop meetings, so some people have taken to using video games for their virtual work meets. One of the games that seems to provide a rather idyllic alternative to the soulless video windows of most conferencing services is Red Dead Redemption 2. Who wouldn't want to meet around a roaring campfire?

Tony Hawk is also at it again. And by "it" we mean being a nice dude. A young fan randomly asked a mailman to deliver his skateboard to Tony Hawk, and through the power of the internet, the legendary skater not only saw a video about the kid, but is sending him the skateboard Hawk was using art the time. You absolutely love to see it!

Fuq Shaq.

Man still wants to be the center of attention between his 300 commercials a week and monopolizing sportscasts.

@ZombieVirolina: I mean he was no average basketball player. He kinda deserves his accolades yea? Also one dude can’t monopolize a gig.

@naruto945: I give him his due, but dude can‘t bow out gracefully. It still has to be all about him. It’s not about the money because he has a net worth of half a billion dollars. He has an unsatiable ego, which he has shown throughout his career. That’s why he wants to play his stunts for attention on the panels and threaten to beat up anyone who calls him out on it (Charles Barkley).

@ZombieVirolina: The dude isn’t even 60 yet and he’s a sports legend it’s not time for him to bow out. His profession of years that he retired from was an American sport athlete. Something you need large amounts of confidence to even succeed in. Other than just not liking shaq for some reason I’m not even sure what your point is.

@naruto945: Because you aren’t reading anything I’m writing. He’s not even 60, but can he go back to the league and start right now? He’s a sports legend, but so is Dr. J, Kareem, Jordan, Malone, Isaiah Thomas, and Larry Bird. You don’t see them coming out every week still thinking it’s all about them. It’s not about me not liking him, it’s all about him still thinking he’s in 1992.

@ZombieVirolina: whatever dude if there’s someone who deserves to walk around with their chest poked out and their head held high it’s Shaquille o Neal. He earned his bragging rights. I think you’re just internet salty you probably don’t even care about what we’re talking about just need to prove a point.

@naruto945:

Sounds like you either want people to think like you do or “they salty”. All I’m doing is pointing out fact. Shaq still wants to be the center of attention and he wants it to be 1992 for the rest of his life.
