GL Live Gives A Whole New Meaning To Gaming News and Audience Engagement
GamingLyfe Network presented a brand-new episode on its Twitch-based stream of “GL Live” on Sunday, November 18th. The co-host matchup introduced “KingMeach” and “TheNerd_Wife” as the lead duo for the Vegas-based production called “The King and The Nerd” … Viewers can enjoy the latest news in the gaming community, honest debates about what’s trending, interviews with industry leaders, and — perhaps the most captivating attribute of the show — crude, improvised humor intermixed throughout.
The news segment first focused on commemorating the life of Stan Lee. Although the Marvel Comics founder passed away last week, his heroism as a creator and innovator will live on for generations to come … Despite the heavy start to the episode, KingMeach and TheNerd_Wife shifted gears with mentions of Fortnite “stream sniping” (Is it strategic? Is it cheating? It seems like gamers are at war on this one.) as well as a preview of the upcoming “Spyro Reignited” release (a triple-pack that looks to fulfill nostalgia and buyer demand). Regarding audience engagement, the co-hosts invited viewers to join them in a game of “QuipLash” through “JackBox.tv” — a mobile-WiFi game that allows up to eight in a party. Each player is given a prompt with a fill-in-the-blank statement and must come up with the wittiest response to win the popular vote for points (Warning: most entries went adult-rated real-quick). Some of the most notable responses were “Man Ranch,” “Butt Cuts,” and “Being Naked In The Oval Office.” Shockingly, a participant by the name of “Moose” earned first place in both rounds.
This episode also introduced the “Wheel of Sadistic Torture” where KingMeach was the clear target of the viewers … thus causing him to not only wear red lipstick but also eat a raw onion like an apple (and get smacked in the face by a GL assistant on set). It was Jackass-like hilarity and the comment thread couldn’t get enough of it … so who knows what next week’s tortures will be!
To balance out the comedy, KingMeach and TheNerd_Wife, along with FreddyLamChops (a fellow GL contributor), interviewed Miss Ayalah — Twitch streamer most recognized for her “Dead By Daylight” walkthroughs. She provided insights on her gaming habits and lifestyle, and how those opened up the door for her current, full-time job. Miss Ayalah’s best advice for streamers (both new and veteran) is to stick with a game or two, go live on time and on a consistent basis, and to do it for the right reasons since it’s all about the gaming community.
