GAMER TIME – Street Fighter V || Hosted by @SpiegelDFE

Capcom’s back at it again with the street fight, Street Fighter V  is the latest entry in Capcom’s highly competitive game series. There’s been an overhaul of the systems at work so people that come into Street Fighter V trying to do the same things that worked in Ultra Street Fighter IV are going to be slightly disappointed. The game has launched with an initial roster size of 16 and more characters are slated to come to the game post launch.

Throw screen

The fighting looks good and the combos are immensely satisfying to pull off. Versus mode is this game’s bread and butter and if you blink, you’ll have played 50 consecutive versus matches before you even know what happened.

Story Mode Screen

The game’s story is told through several short vignettes. The art style is neat and it’s kind of like a graphic novel where you get to beat people up every few pages. Much like the extra roster characters, an expanded story mode is in the works as a piece of future downloadable content. Watch the video for my full Gamer Time review.

GAMER TIME – Transformers: Devastation || Hosted By @SpiegelDFE

Coming from the folks over at Platinum Games, Transformers: Devastation is something like a shot of straight adrenaline to your Xbox One or Playstation 4. The game is a wild ride from start to finish and has some of the slickest action and most popping visuals I’ve seen in a really long time.

It features an addictive battle system that I couldn’t stop playing. I kept saying “just one more mission” and would end up playing at least another three or four.

Screen 2

The game is an absolute joy to play because of its gameplay variety. I can’t recall feeling bored while playing this game and I never felt that there was only one way to solve a problem in front of me.

Website Recommendation: CoPromote

I’m back with another website recommendation that I find helpful to anyone who’s looking to promote themselves. This time I’m bringing you a secret weapon of mine that I’ve kept to myself for the last 5 months and I’m ready to share since I know it works! CoPromote is a co-marketing platform that helps generate boost for their posts such as on Twitter, Tumblr, Vine, and even Youtube. They have a community of over 800,000 members that relate to categories like music, gaming, blogging, brands, filmmaking, and so much more.
nikkisiixx-copromote-account
Luckily, this platform is free but are limited to the features you can use. But first I have to explain how easy and accessible CoPromote is. You can access it on their site CoPromote.com or on your mobile device through their CoPromote app. You are able to boost one thing at a time and you’re able to keep tabs on how the tweet/post/blog/video is doing with their analytics. You get to know who is exactly sharing your content, how engaged is it, and helps to improve with what’s really bringing traffic.

copromote-tabs copromote-details

Since using CoPromote for the last 5 months, I find it to be extremely helpful and anyone who is trying to get more exposure on your content either with blogging or music. It works. Before I would get probably 2-3 RTs but when I boost a tweet I now get an average of 20 RTs and even some new followers. Also, helping to bringing new traffic to my Twitter account, My Website, and even my Youtube Channel.

But I know by making your account Pro you can really take advantage of the CoPromote platform and reach to almost close to 1,500,000 additional reach. They have different packages and what I find to be useful is the unlimited boosts. Meaning I can have over 12 tweets being RT, Liked, and Shared. Because currently I’m using the free account which only allows 1 Boost at a time. Check out their packages and prices below:
copromote-prices

I’ve been able to find some pretty dope Gaming Youtube Channels. I found them by using CoPromote’s Youtube Feature. Say I find a video I like and I want to feature. It adds a clickable link to my videos on my channel. When someone watches my video a pop up of the video comes out on the bottom left corner. I choose which videos would be more relevant to my viewers. You can also boost a youtube video and get yours featured on other youtube channels.

copromote-youtube copromote-youtube-001

I seriously reinforce for you guys to check out CoPromote! If you’re an artist trying to get more exposure this is the best way to boost your content from tweets and your music videos! Best way for things to get around is word of mouth and CoPromote makes it easy. If you have a budget for promotion I highly suggest you go Pro in order to really push your content the right way. Try it out for free if money is tight, but don’t miss your chance.

P.S Follow CoPromote because sometimes they post discount codes for their GoPro Packages, Be on the lookout: 👀

Artist Advice: Avoid Being Just Another Soundcloud Rapper

NIKKISIIXX: This time around I had artist SM to bring his point of view for this week’s Artist Advice Article. SM is also a new contributor here at NikkiSiixx.com. SM’s topic of choice was AVOID BEING JUST ANOTHER SOUNDCLOUD RAPPER. Take it away SM –

Inside_Recording_Booth2So can we all agree that damn near everybody and their uncle can rap and that all of them with access to a computer are most likely recording a mixtape as I write this? OK, now that we agree on that let me give you an example of a scenario that plays out much too often. Let’s skip pass the small talk and fast-forward to the day the rapper’s project is actually here. This is the day all of their friends and family receive that “Check out my music” text or email. The day complete strangers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram get hit like an Uzi with the rapper’s music link. Often times begging us to check it out or my favorite line, “Click on the link in bio.” The music is uploaded. The cover art is uploaded. While everything seems ripe and ready for the rapper to catapult to stardom (in his or her mind), the Soundcloud numbers are saying, “Don’t quit your day job!” And from that point on, all this rapper seems to do is promote his or her project on Soundcloud. Why stop there? Why let your career stall and lose momentum? I’m going to tell you a few ways you can avoid being just another Soundcloud rapper.

Let’s be clear, Soundcloud is a great platform for artist; however, it takes a lot more than that to be successful. For instance, shooting a music video is a very important part of promoting your project. Per day, 1.5 million views on YouTube are for music videos alone. Artists are now getting signed off the buzz and number of views from their YouTube Channel. Songstuff has a great article online you should check out called “Tips For Making a Music Video”. People want to see you, so get in on this action immediately.

social-media-dataAlso, you need to hire a reputable publicist or music promotion company to help get your project out there. Your occasional tweets, posts, and status updates are not enough. Put your project in the hands of people with experience and you will see much better results. To learn more about the benefits and what to look for in a Publicist, check out David Robert’s article “9 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring A Publicist“. Another thing I suggest is getting your project out there offline. That means getting off your ass and off your computer or off your mobile device and actually network with other human beings face to face. Press up physical copies of your project and give them to DJ’s, you know the drill. Let’s not pretend like we don’t know how to operate without the Internet. Of course there are more ways and ideas you can use, I’m just scratching the surface. If you have any ideas feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll take a look. Ultimately, it’s all on you the artist to make good music and get it out there.

Video: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Meets Parkour in Real Life by Devinsupertramp


Screen Shot 2015-07-11 at 5.04.53 PMOne thing I really love is the creativity of directors and the vision they want to portray. DevinSuperTramp does it again with his Videogames meet Parkour in real life. This time he goes with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. What was really the best part was that they added a female parkourist Aleksandra Shevchenko. Her flips and tricks are insane. Everyone did an amazing job, and you can even see this in 4k quality format!!! Parkour/Free-running stunts performed by the French FreeRun Family. Music composed by Stephen Anderson. Film by Devin Graham using the RED Dragon, filmed in 6k, exported out to 4K compressed for YouTube. Sound design by Dan Pugsley. This video was sponsored by Ubisoft. There was a couple of moments I had to hold my breathe from the suspense from these crazy tricks. In general I really feel in love with the idea of Parkour, especially after playing Mirror’s Edge.

Videogames: GCNGamingSins – Everything Wrong With Batman Arkham City


I wanted to show you guys this video I came across youtube. It’s from GCNGamingSins video series going in on nitpicking the hell out of video games. This video is on Batman Arkham City. With the release of Batman: Arkham Knight, GCNGamingSins thought it’d be a great idea to revisit its predecessor and arguably the best game out of the Arkham series, Arkham City. This game is awesome, no doubt about it. But like all games in existence, it’s not free of sin. And its got quite a bit of them. Find out how many sins they find in Arkham City. I really like the narrators whitty commentary on obvious matters. He’s like the common sense, Jimmie Cricket, type of narration.

Here are some of my favorite screenshots of commentary being said:

Video: Super Mario Brothers Parkour


Have you ever thought: What if video games were real? Warialasky‘s channel probably thought the same thing and made a Super Mario Brothers Parkour. Recording Christian Russell and Ronnie Shalvis as Mario and Luigi. Classic Characters from the video game Super Mario. I love that they’re dressed up in the blue overalls, bright red and green long sleeves, hats, and their iconic mustaches. They added animation to show us the blocks, coins, and warp pipes. You even get to see some enemies such as Goombas and Koopa Troopas. Hope you like the video as much as I did. Very cool, love everything about this video.
