    How Video Games Satisfy Basic Human Needs

    By Brandykins1982, in Frontpage,


    My apologies for not getting more Stream Team news up lately! 
    But there's going to be a LOT of news regarding the stream team in the coming weeks. 
    In the meantime, check out this month's Streamer Showcase for October: our very own JaysonsRage! You can find him on Twitch at http://www.twitch.tv/jaysonsrage!
    How long have you been streaming?:   On and off, about 2 years now. More seriously a year ago though.  
    How did you find the AJSA?:  I was a fan of Joe and it was mentioned in a video! I wanted some peeps to play my PS4 with, which is all I had at the time.  
    How did you become a member of the AJSA Stream Team?:  The commander of the PS4 division (wassup, Stick) saw that I knew how to do videos and streaming and said “You. You're coming with me” essentially. I don't think I'd be here or running the YouTube channel without him. When I saw there was a stream team and the channel I said “I'm going right there.” And Stick made it happen cause he saw something in what I was doing. All sincerity, I owe him a lot.  
    What’s your style of streaming? What types of games do you typically like to play/stream?:  I stream quite a variety, as I love it all, but my true home is FPS games. I play a LOT of CSGO.  
     
    What is your favorite game, the game that you always end up going back to?:  At the end of the day, Doom is my favorite game of all time. It is why I love gaming. Hell, I was raised on it. Doom.  
     
    Whereabouts can people find you on Twitter, Youtube, etc.?  Twitter:   www.twitter.com/jaysonsrage Youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/jaysonsrage  AJSAGaming Youtube:  http://www.youtube.com/AJSAGaming

    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [October 17th to October 22nd]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.

Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live.
