We’re always curious to hear from gamers, especially on your superb gaming experiences powered by Radeon™ RX graphics cards. We sent a handful of gamers and streamers some Radeon RX GPUs last year to see what games they were playing—they have thriving communities of their own, so browse through their comments and follow them to see what they’re up to.
My name is Mae. I’m a 30 year old nurse turned full time gamer/broadcaster. I’ve been a content creator on YouTube for 6 years and have been a partnered broadcaster on Twitch for 4 years.
What MissesMae is Playing
I’m really into FPS and shooters in general. The current games I’m playing are Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege1, Call of Duty: World War II2 and Fortnite Battle Royale3.
Playing on Radeon
Since I started using the Radeon RX Vega4, there were less screen tearing on the games that I play.
You can find me on Twitch nearly everyday or catch my live stream highlights on my YouYube.
I’ve played games for as long as I can remember, whether it was Kirby on N64 or Pokemon, but my dad sat me down and taught me how to play Halo:CE. So it was very fitting that my first stream was playing the original Destiny on release day in September 2014.
Video games has had such a positive impact on my life and source of meeting wonderful people. My goal since I started is to create a safe, supportive community that happens to be full of super rad people who enjoy playing games and watching me play games.
What SydSoGood is Playing
I definitely lean towards first person shooters, but I’m currently playing Call of Duty: WWII, Fortnite, PUBG5, occasionally League of Legends6, and just finished up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus7 for my YouTube channel.
Playing on Radeon
Radeon RX 570 made THE BIGGEST difference for sure. My computer went from running at a 4 to a 10 just by swapping that in. I also have the AMD Ryzen8, which makes a load of difference.
Previously, I was only able to stream console games because my PC couldn’t handle me playing and streaming from it, but now that’s never an issue so it’s nice to be able to pull up a game and not have to think about how I’m gonna stream it because my PC can take anything that I throw at it.
When Destiny 29 came out on PC that was such a game changer. I don’t usually play shooters on PC (mainly because I’m so incompetent trying to aim with a mouse and keyboard), but couldn’t help myself because of how great it ran on my computer.
I stream Mondays, Wednesdays, and Sundays at 6:30p PT // 9:30p ET on Twitch and upload Let’s Plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays and vlogs on Saturdays!
Here’s where you can find me on the internet:
I’ve always wanted to stream – but back at my rural Indiana home the best we could get was dial-up internet. Then when I moved to Korea in 2012 as an English teacher, I was finally able to start streaming thanks to the Korean internet.
I’ve been a full-time streamer since 2014, streaming mostly League of Legends and producing YouTube content with highlights from my stream, as well as some occasional guides and goofs.
What Cowsep is Playing
Playing mostly League of Legends, but I do occasionally dive into other games after the main stream or between LoL queues.
Last year I started playing Summoners War on my phone due to a sponsorship, and I have actually been addicted to the game since.
I do also very much enjoy playing around in VR with my Oculus Rift, but I have been unable to fully stream this before getting the Radeon RX Vega4.
Playing on Radeon
Playing League with the Radeon RX Vega has been flawless. It has actually drastically impacted my streaming too.
I run a bunch of custom OBS plugins and overlays on my stream that utilizes a lot of onscreen sprites and particle effects for various events (subscriptions, donations, etc.) and these have been drastically improved on the Radeon RX Vega.
I can now run my custom overlay setup, play League and still work on my own game in Unity and Blender at the same time without dropping a single frame.
I also tried out the Radeon RX Vega for my VR setup and it has been great. With my previous cards, I was not able to stream VR in 1080p 60fps without dropping a lot of frames. Now I can stream my VR experience too.
I’m streaming every single day on Twitch: https://twitch.tv/cowsep
We release videos regularly throughout the week: https://youtube.com/cowsep
Earlier this year I started learning game development with Unity – and I have been very much into it. I am currently working on my own game named Pathtale!
I visit pretty much all local gaming events in Korea and I can always be found at TwitchCon and the occasional PAX in the US!
I’m a successful Marketing Manager within the video game industry. I currently work at Riot Games as the Influencer Relations Manager. In the past, I’ve worked with Reboot Game Developer Conferences, Innervate (Gamesight), 3D Realms, Tencent Boston, and Signal Studios. My history with video games started at a young age when I started building computers with my father in 1994. I grew up kicking ass on games such as Doom, Heretic, Half-Life, and Quake.
What Becky is Playing
Currently playing PUBG, of course. Also a lot of Warframe10 and Civ 611.
Playing on Radeon
The Radeon RX Vega means that I can play my games on max graphics and still have high frame rates. Games are sexy and smooth!
People can mainly find me on Twitter at @omglazerkittens.
I’ve been a fan of Twitch and Justin.tv since the early days of eSports broadcasting on the platform, and I’m a frequent sight hosting and interviewing at competitive gaming events. Most recently this summer, I’ve covered the Overwatch World Cup in Beijing and Los Angeles, Pokémon GO Fest in Chicago, the Hearthstone Championship Tour at Gamescom in Germany, Tokyo Game Show in Japan, the BlizzCon All Access Channel, Hulu’s show Player vs Player, and E3, PAX East, PAX West, New York Comic Con, and TwitchCon on behalf of Twitch.
Playing on Radeon
When I’m not traveling to cover the wide world of eSports, I enjoy multiplayer shooters like Overwatch12. In my recent years, I’ve discovered the joy of strategy games like Civilization and Divinity13, and relaxing single-player adventures like Stardew Valley14 – all of which make great use of the Vega and massive curved FreeSync monitor in both detail and refresh-rate.
You can catch me covering CS:GO15 this January in Stockholm and lots of other video gaming and eSports events all year long! The best way to keep up with me is Twitter.com/SeltzerPlease!
I’ve been gaming since I was old enough to hold a controller (shout-out to Pinball Quest and Anticipation on the NES!), but I got inspired to stream a few years ago as part of promo work I was doing for the original Rocksmith16. I fell in love with the game, and Rocksmith streams happen every Monday night to this day!
What Elisa’s Playing
Right now, I’m working my way through Super Mario Odyssey17 and am looking forward to taking The Sims 4’s Cats & Dogs18 expansion for a whirl. Of course, I’m still playing and streaming Rocksmith 2014 Remastered every week!
Playing on Radeon
Having the “Vega” in my life and learning PC building as part of our Streaming PC Building panel at this past TwitchCon was an eye-opening experience. Building your PC is more accessible than ever—and it’s not as intimidating as it might seem. I highly recommend building your own.
If you’re interested in learning more about music, playing guitar or bass, or just want to listen to a couple of musicians being goofballs, you can check out our Rocksmith and music streams over at twitch.tv/elisarockdoc Monday and Tuesday nights at 6 PM PT/9 PM PT.
