This week’s Streamer Spotlight falls on a good friend of mine and all-round awesome streamer, Noodle3000.
Noodle started streaming early doors this year and already has a following of more than 800 Twitchers. He’s a variety streamer who plays games such as Fortnite (primarily), Dead by Daylight, Call of Duty, Overwatch and They Are Billions. In real life, Noodle is a mechanic and has a busy working week but always manages to put a stream in every single day.
Noodle3000 spends a lot of time playing Fortnite and incidentally, is a pretty damn good player. He is also a member of the B42 gaming community and participates in their community events. His streams are flirty, cheeky, down to earth and no holds barred; even okay for the kids (which is more than I can say for mine!). In fact, Noodle is such a sweet dude that he even plays Fortnite with the son of one of our well-loved community members, godsends. Noodle makes everyone who drops by his streams feel welcome and part of the group and he never lets anything put a dampener on his mood – even the time there were repeated power cuts at his house which corrupted all his Streamlabs files mid-stream and kept knocking his Internet off.
A streamer definitely worth checking out, even if just purely for his cheeky personality, Noodle3000 is up there with the best new streamers and even has a merchandise store if, like me, you really wanted a t-shirt with that awesome little bowl of noodles logo on.
I was thinking of ideas for blog posts and I thought that there is one thing I have an abundance of and that is streamer friends and I really love to support them and great streamers in general so I thought it would be cool to do streamer spotlight posts, highlighting people I’ve come across that are really awesome and deserve tons of recognition. I will be starting my spotlight posts with a streamer who I have been friends with now from the start and am so proud of because he really does give it his everything and puts in so much time and effort – noodle3000. I’m hoping to post one of those every week, so will be aiming to post noodle’s spotlight by the end of the week, so watch this space.
It’s been such a busy week for me. I finally got some finance so have bought a new car. Well, you know, not new new but newer than the one I had and it’s safe and sturdy. I spent most of Tuesday sorting that out, spent some time with one of my friends last night, have streamed tonight, pick my car up on Saturday, help my dad set up his new Amazon Echo (funny story for another time) and then on Sunday pop over to see my mum. So basically I have tomorrow night free and I decided to do a Halloween stream.
We had a Halloween party last year that we pretty much went all out on it and it was fancy dress. I got a last minute skeleton dress and Dave painted my face, so I’ll ask him to do that again for me tomorrow and I’m gonna get a group of people together and play some Dead by Daylight. I’m always cannon fodder/bait/decoy so we’ll see how it pans out.
It’s safe to say I’m pretty shit at it.
At first appearances, the UI wasn’t strikingly different. The edges seemed more round, which was nice. However, when swiping between apps and screens, I found the transitions to be much smoother and more fluid and it felt and looked miles better. The recent apps screen now displays in a card format which is easy to navigate, although I’m not loving the fact that I have to scroll through alllll my recent apps to get to the “Clear All” function.
All in all, bearing in mind I haven’t managed to test the Digital Wellbeing mode yet, I am absolutely in LOVE with this new version of Android. Best. Android. Yet.
