I am a fan of video game streaming, some people often ask, why would you watch someone else play a video game, thats dumb… etc etc. I usually return with a comment about them watching sports, and how they should play instead of watching… Usually shuts them up pretty quickly.
And that leads in to this streamer review.
He is a family man, with kids and a wife that has taken up the moniker of Mrs.Boomer, who also streams over on DLive. The family element of his stream is part of the attraction here. Obviously you have to ask why this is a good thing, at least for me. Well I am happy to see a whole family be involved in the streaming world. This is why streaming is so unique, because a person with a family, can be successful doing something they truly love, with the people they love and it works out beautifully.
I have stopped in multiple times on his stream and told jokes, shared crazy gifs on his chat, talked shop, and he has returned by shouting me out on twitter, and drawn more people to my channel as well. You can see that the community on DLive is self-supporting, and at the heart of it, is this fine gentleman. Not once have I asked for anything from him, I have just watched and enjoyed his stream. Even laughed when his kids came on stream to ask him for things. No pause button, just watched him go right to town with his kids, no fear of his character dying, nothing, his family came first and that made my heart sing.
Being a part of that family element is amazing, because the other day, over on twitch we all got to see the exact opposite of what an amazing parent would do. I won’t go into many details here, but a woman in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, was arrested for abusing her child on stream when she was interrupted playing a popular video game.
This is a real difference in gaming, parenting, and so-on. This is the reason why I am a fan of Boomer, he plays, interacts, and is clearly a great parent becuase he doesn’t let his stream, video games, anything get in the way of his family life, his children, his wife. And that makes him worth the watch, if not for the games, for the obvious love this man has for his family, it is elating to see.
If you haven’t given boomer a chance, I suggest you head on over to his channel on DLive and watch. It is good to see someone who shares good wholesome family values stream their obvious downtime and be happy doing it, even if there is interruptions.
