Competing and streaming 'Fortnite' all night at the most iconic building in Chicago, a city close to my heart, is a dream come true.
TwitchCon is something that I look forward to all year because it gives me an opportunity to see what's in the pipeline and meet up with some of the best the industry has to offer, like DrLupo.
I think that Amazon made an incredible play with the Twitch purchase.
Amazon creating GameOn could be a very good introduction into competitive gaming.
I'd already been using the Uber Eats app for a long time - and it's super simple to use. That's just what I look for when I go into partnerships. If something comes to me that I've never used before for a potential partnership, then it doesn't feel real or natural. This one is a match made in heaven.
I never feel awkward, ever, when I'm eating! If someone doesn't want to watch me eat? Dude, they can leave - I gotta get my fuel. My justification is, would you rather me end my stream and come back two hours later cause I went out to eat, or just eat real quick in between a match?
I've done stuff with Bud Light, but do I want to take on a beer sponsor knowing most of my community is younger kids who can't drink? There are still a lot of people over 21 who watch. You're never going to hit your exact target audience.
It's exciting to see a brand like Hershey's is getting into the gaming world.
It is very difficult to 'make it' as a top broadcaster or YouTuber.
I have an amazing partnership with Red Bull.
There's, like, a little move back in the 'Halo' days, whenever you were getting chased, if you went around a corner and the guy followed you, and you jumped over his head and, like, backsmacked him. It was called like 'the ninja.'
I think that what streamers have is a direct connection to their audience. Imagine if LeBron James or Michael Jordan could interact directly with their audience every time they went to work.
I feel like Drake saw that I was up-and-coming in the gaming scene, and he thought it would be a perfect way to just tap into another source of viewers by playing with me. He also might have just wanted to game. I'm not sure.
'Fortnite' really is just the perfect storm of a game. You have the fact that it's free to play on almost every platform, and everything about the game is enjoyable.
People need to be true to themselves, and if entertaining and content-creating is something that does not come naturally and is really difficult, they should find something they are passionate about and love and do that instead.
I always played videogames my entire life.
Obviously I love Sony; I love PlayStation. I've been playing them my entire life.
If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we're playing with one another, and even if there's a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever.
'Fortnite' is cartoony, if you want to use that word, and that's going to a good turn-on for parents when they see their kids playing a game like that.
I wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for the 'Fortnite' Community.
