OpenVPN Cannot Authenticate -Google Authenticator Code Incorrect – Android Windows 10

When trying to setup and authenticate to an AWS Instance running OpenVPN, a user could not complete a new connection to OpenVPN after entering the initial un/pwd. They receive the error: Permission denied. This is after successfully setting up the OpenVPN client on Windows 10 and scanning an Authenticator code using Google Authenticator App on a Samsung S8 Active Android mobile phone running Android 8.0.0 ‘lollipop’. Ultimately the reason the user could not authenticate was their mobile phone’s time was off by about 3 minutes. Continue below to find additional information on how to troubleshoot this and other authentication issues with OpenVPN.

When troubleshooting OpenVPN login errors it’s a good idea to first try some of the following:

Unlock a Disabled or Locked account on OpenVPN Admin console

To check for the events related to a user lockout, first log into the Admin web console > Status > Log Reports. Here you will find the errors related to bad authentication and eventually an account lockout.

The errors you may find could be the following:

Google Authenticator Code is incorrect.
LOCKOUT: user temporarily locked out due to multiple authentication failures.

To unlock a user account (if using local authentication), Login to the Admin Web Console, Go to “General” under Authentication and change Authentication to “PAM”, Save Settings > Update Running Server > “Local” > Save Settings> Update Running Server.

This procedure should unlock disabled or locked user accounts on OpenVPN.

Reset A User Account on OpenVPN

To reset a user’s OpenVPN account:

Log in to the admin web console, click on User Permissions.

Find the username, place a checkmark in the Delete column, then Apply > Save. Next, re-create the account.
Scroll to the bottom of the list, type the new user name:
Eg. jcoltrin
Save > update server

Go back find the username again in the list and hit Show:

Enter in the Local Password: ([email protected]!)
Save > Update

Check OpenVPN for Valid Concurrent License

In the admin web console, under the Configuration menu, click License. Check to ensure that your concurrent users have not reached or exceeded the limits of your licenses (under At a glance,) or that your licenses have not expired.

Use SSH to check the logs of the OpenVPN server and get the specific errors for an individual’s login problems.

After logging into the server using Putty/SSH, you can change directory to the scripts directory:

cd
/usr/local/openvpn_as/scripts/

and then issue the command ./authcli –user <username> –pass [email protected]

./authcli --user jcoltrin --pass [email protected]

This will produce something similar to the following information:

Result:
API METHOD: authenticate
AUTH_RETURN
  status : COM_FAULT
  reason : An error occurred while connecting: 13: Permission denied. (twisted.internet.error.ConnectError)
  user : jcoltrin

Addtionally you can find more messages related to authentication failures in /var/log. You’ll find these messages in the latest log files:

openvpnas.log

openvpnas.log.1

Use your favorite editor (vi) to search through the logs

vi openvpnas.log

use the command / and then the username to search for that term and hit “n” to go to the next instance of your term, for example:

/jcoltrin > n > n

and then :q to quit.

Here are some typical error messages for my authentication errors:

Make sure the phone with Google Authenticator has the correct time and set the phone to sync it’s clock with the network/carrier

As mentioned at the beginning of this article, what the original login issue came down to was the Android phone, on which the Google Authenticator was running, had it’s time off by about 3 minutes. To set and change the correct time on an Android Galaxy S8 Active, first, go to Settings > General Management > Date and Time > Set/Turn on Automatic Date and Time.

I’m not sure why the value for this phone had it’s time set to not have automatic sync with the network/carrier. This may have been due to a recent android update because I found this setting off on a couple phones in the office. Ensure the time on your server is accurate as well by issuing the bash/ssh command:

date 

Your result should look like the following:

[email protected]:/var/log$ date
Thu Feb 28 14:46:57 PST 2019

If you find the time on your server is not accurate, check out my article on how to set the time on Ubuntu and Synchronize NTP here.

Solved – Office 365 Room Calendar Not Auto Processing or Accepting Meeting Requests

After having created a Resource Room in the Office365 Admin console (with an Enterprise E1 license,) you may find that meetings which are created in Outlook and which are sent, are not automatically processing and sending verification confirmations back to the person that created the event. Nor will new events populate the event in the new room’s Outlook calendar. In this case, there are a few things we can check to ensure the room behaves as intended.

  1. First, after creating the room, ensure that you, as an admin, are set as an owner of the room. Under O365 > Admin Center > Rooms and Resources > place a checkmark next to the room in question. Ensure that Allow repeating meetings and Automatic Processing is On. Then, click on Edit Exchange Settings:

2. In this example, we don’t use booking delegates. In the Exchange Settings for the new resource room, make sure Booking requests are accepted automatically. 

3. Edit the booking options, contact information, email address, and mailtip settings to your preferences and then click on Mailbox Delegation. Here, add yourself under Full Access so that we can go on to our next step.

4. Next, log into your own OWA admin Outlook online inbox. In Outlook, click your profile photo in the upper right corner and click “Open another mailbox.” Type the address of the room and open the webmail for the room.

5. Here you may see some emails of previous attempts to book events like the following with the error “Your calendar couldn’t be checked to see whether this event conflicts with other events.“:

6. This error lets us know that automatic processing is not working even though we have it set to “On” in our first step. Had the processing worked correctly, we wouldn’t even see this event email in the mailbox of the room in question. 

7. In the upper right corner, click the Gear icon, then under Your app settings, click Calendar.

8. In the calendar resource scheduling settings, ensure that under the scheduling options, “Automatically process event invitations and cancellations” is checked, and then click Save. 

9. In theory, these settings should be enough to get the calendar to auto process and verify, however, your results may vary. Test by creating a meeting event in outlook with the new room. When you send the meeting, you should receive a verification email in your inbox in less than a minute. If you don’t receive the verification, check the inbox of the calendar again. You’ll probably find more emails with the “Your calendar couldn’t be checked…” errors.

10. Time to open PowerShell and connect to your O365 Exchange. If you’ve enabled MFA (two-factor authentication) use the guide on how to connect to Exchange with Hybrid/Modern Authentication here. If you don’t use Modern 2FA authentication, use the following commands:

$LiveCred = Get-Credential

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange-ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

Import-PSSession $Session

11. Run the following command to get the calendar processing conditions:

Get-CalendarProcessing -Identity "[email protected]" | Format-List

12. It’s helpful to first get a list of all calendar processing objects of a room that already works correctly to refer to when editing your new room’s permissions. If you don’t already have a room that you can reference, below is a list of my room that is not behaving normally:

13. Notice that ProcessExternalMeetingMessages is set to False. Let’s change this to True with the following command:

Set-CalendarProcessing [email protected] -ProcessExternalMeetingMessages $True

14. After making this and a few other changes displayed in the following screenshot, go ahead and try creating another test meeting and see if the autoprocessing behaves as it should. If you’re still having trouble, try referring to the screenshot below as an example, and use the “Set-CalendarProcessing” command to edit the values.

15. Once you successfully receive verifications and the calendar populates with events as it should, you may want to set the calendar to display the owner of the event and details of the event (rather than the event is listed in the calendar as only “Busy”.) To do so, follow the instructions I wrote in my article here

How to set an Office365 user Password to never expire with PowerShell

Occasionally we’ll be required to set a user account on Office365 to never expire. It’s not advisable to perform this action, as a compromised account who’s passwords never expires can be a liability. However, in some cases a utility account such as a scanner/copier or kiosk account may require a password that does not change. The following tutorial will show you how to set an Office365 password to never expire using PowerShell.

First, we’ll want to ensure that the account password is not already set to expire and we want to confirm it’s status. Using PowerShell we can get information about an Office365 user account password expiration status.

1. Connect to Microsoft Online Services with PowerShell by running the following commands:

Import-Module MSOnline
Connect-MsolService

2. Next, replace <UserID> with the user account (email address) of the user’s properties we want to get with the following command:

Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <user ID> | Select PasswordNeverExpires

Our result should look like the following:

3. Because we get the message returned that the property PasswordNeverExpires = False, we want set it to $True and set the account password to never expire with the following command:

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <[email protected]> -PasswordNeverExpires $true

Again, change the <[email protected]> identifier to the email address of the account you want to change. Our result will not produce an output:

4. To verify the account password will no longer expire, we’ll run our first command again to see the result:

Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName <user ID> | Select PasswordNeverExpires

Our result should look similar to the following:

Because our PasswordNeverExpires property is now set to True, our task is complete. Disconnect from Office365 and close powershell by entering the command: exit.

Solved – Cannot move files in SharePoint Online Office 365 from one folder to another folder

When attempting to move files in SharePoint Online Office365 from one folder to another you may find that you get errors or the moving process times out or fails with the error:

Error: We couldn't move the file because it's locked for editing or has been modified or deleted.

What has happened is some of the files in these folders have been marked as “checked out” or “locked”. This may have been done erroneously by a user or the status was corrupted when the files were originally uploaded into SharePoint.

Once the files are checked in, you can move them. As an alternative to moving the files, you may also be able to “Copy To…”, and then delete the original files. Again, you may not be able to delete the files you copied because the files you want to delete in SharePoint may also be locked or checked-out.

This is what worked for me:

  1. Use your favorite web browser and log into your SharePoint site (e.g. https://companyname.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename.
  2. Browse to the problem folders that contain files that you cannot move to another folder.
  3. In the folders, you should find files that are “checked out”. The files will have a green arrow icon next to the file icon.  
  4. Place a checkmark next to the file that is checked out.
  5. In the menu at the top-right choose “…”
  6. In the “…” menu, click “Discard check out”
  7. Now try moving the file with the following sequence:
  8. If the problem files are Word/Excel files, you may need to Open the files in Word or Excel first, in order to check them back in.

How to Enable Archiving for Outlook Office 365 and Move Old Mail into Archive

At some point, a user’s mailbox will reach the default quota for Enterprise E1 default of 50 GB, and they will have to either move mail into an archive or delete mail to continue to receive email. The user may receive the warning:

Your mailbox is near the maximum storage limit. Archive or delete items to create additional free space.

Our options at this point is to do one of three things: Upgrade the user’s license from E1 to E3 to double the mailbox size, permanently delete mail out of the mailbox, or archive the mail. Microsoft provides 50 additional GB of archive space for an E1 license (this number is subject to change.)

In many instances, the user may not want to delete any mail and would prefer to archive the mail. In my opinion, the ideal way to handle archiving is to create an online archive, rather than create .pst files on the local machine which could end up getting lost or deleted. Also managing local .pst archive files can be a pain. And lastly, if the archive is only available as a .pst file in the user’s PC, the archived mail will not be available from webmail or a different device.

If we want to create an online archive for the user on Office 365, there are a few simple steps to take in the Office 365 Admin console.

  1. Log into the Office365 Admin console, then click on Admin centers > Security and Compliance:
  2. Next, on the navigation bar, expand Data Governance, and click Archive
  3. Now on the right-hand pane, we will see all of our mailboxes and find out if the Archive Mailbox for Office 365 is enabled or disabled.
  4. To enable the archive on a disabled user’s mailbox, first select the user. If we have a lot of users, do a search for the user’s name and then highlight the correct mailbox we want to change.
  5. We can see in the screenshot above, my account already has Archive mailbox: enabled. If the account’s archive had been disabled, we would simply click the Enable link. When we click enable, we will get the following Warning:
If you enable this person's archive mailbox, items in their mailbox that are older than two years will be moved to the new archive. Are you sure you want to enable this archive mailbox? Yes No

9. Click Yes.

10. What happens next is, as the warning states, mail that is over 2 years old will begin to be archived. We will also get some new features in both Outlook online, as well as in Outlook 2016/Outlook 2013. We can wait for the auto-archiving to take place, but we can also take some immediate action to archive old mail online.

11. Pretty much immediately in Outlook online, we will get new Archive buttons, and an archive folder here:

We won’t see the archive buttons until we click on an individual message. If we do click on a message and select it, we will see the Archive button available.

12.  We can also select multiple emails and then right-click on the highlighted messages. A wizard will appear on the screen. Click the Archive button to move these emails to the archive folder.

13. If reducing the size of the mailbox immediately is our goal, we can start by archiving our largest emails first. At the top of the mail folder, whether it be the inbox, Sent Items, or Deleted Items folder, we’d click the Filter button > Sort by > Size.

14. Select the “Enormous” items first by clicking on the top email, hold down the Shift button, then select the bottom email and it will highlight all of the messages in between. Next, right-click and choose Archive.

15. In the desktop version of Outlook 2013/2016, only after a few hours will we have our new Archive folder available. This may take up to 24 hours depending on the speed of replication of settings from Office 365 down to the client. Once the folder is available, however, I find the process of moving mail out of the inbox, sent items or cut/paste of subfolders into the archive much easier.

I don’t have mail over 2 years old in my mailbox, so I’m not sure if it will automatically create subfolders dependent on where they originally lived so let me know in the comments if you notice automatic folder creation.

In order for someone to find an old message, they will only need to search their mailbox in Outlook online or Search Archive in Outlook 2013/2016.

 

Solved – Office365 Sharepoint Open with File Explorer not working on Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11

On Office365 SharePoint, when trying to open a file in the Windows File Explorer, you might get something similar to the following error:

An error occurred while reconnecting Z: to (sharepoint location) - Web Client Network: Access Denied. Before opening files in this location you must first add the web site to your trusted sites list, browse to the web site, and select the option to login automatically. The connection has not been restored.

….or clicking the Open With Explorer button does nothing, or the button is greyed out.

If the button is greyed out using Windows 10 Edge, Edge does not support Active X controls, so go the Start button, type in Internet Explorer, open IE 11, and try again.

To get to the Open in Explorer button.

  1. Log into https://portal.office.com
  2. Click on your apps menu and choose SharePoint
  3. Browse to a document library > Documents
  4. In the bottom left corner of the browser click the “Return to classic SharePoint”
  5. Place a check mark next to a folder, click on the “Library” tab at the top of the screen, and then click “Open in Explorer”
  6.  

To resolve, make sure you have the following:

  • Windows 10 is up to date (v1803) as of this article
  • The Webclient service is Started and set to Automatic (Start > services.msc )

Make sure the following sites are added to your Trusted Sites in Internet Explorer settings:

  • https://yourdomain-files.sharepoint.com
  • https://*.sharepoint.com
  • https://login.microsoft.com
  • https://portal.office.com
  • https://yourdomain-myfiles.sharepoint.com

Next, restart your IE web browser, open IE, log into Office 365, and try again.

It may be beneficial to reset IE to its default settings:

IE > Gear Menu > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Reset (delete personal settings) – use caution, try the following first, then if still having issues, try resetting your browser.

IRL

I’m waiting for tomorrow – I’m so excited! (COD Blackout on PC)

Mike Told story about how he broke his arm/elbow. “I don’t remember how much it hurt. It hurt a lot. I do remember when I took the cast off. Yeah my mom said move it. So I whipped my arm straight and it hurt so bad. She said yeah you can move your arm but she didn’t say slowly so I whipped it straight and you gotta tell me very specific instructions or else I’ll F it up.”

I could probably be alone the rest of my life, because I got you guys I’m not really alone am I?

I could probably survive on my own. Hopefully, I’ve never had a lonely feeling because I was always online.

Where’s Troy now? He’s downstairs, he’s sleeping. We put him in doggy day-care.

We are social animals and we need social interaction. I agree but I always have social interaction since I stream.

I think I’m supposed to announce something. Luckily everyone in the gaming community is pretty chill.

12:45 AFK PUBG – (Africa by Toto)

New Shroud Skins! (Hype!)

You ready for some more Shroud Skins?!

Look at those gloves!

It’s 4 skins, M16, Gloves, Bandana, and the Jacket.

It’ll be $14.99 crate tomorrow.

Think about it like you’re sending a 15 dono to me.

Look at this helmet, isn’t this helmet cool?

I wish I could change the laser color.

Only you can see your own laser.

Funny Dono (clip)

What is this survival level? What do you get?

Wow, thumb grip is not very good on this gun (UMP).

I don’t know how long the new shroud skins will be available for.

Troy, no. Why are you chewing on the chair?

This gun is so weird. Lightweight feels kind of good actually.

AFK to take Troy outside 1:10PM PST

I didn’t see the final draft (skins). I wanted to see how it was finished, but I like the way they turned out. The gloves are sick. I really like the gloves.

I like the M16, I think it looks the best as a weapon to skin. I hate SKS I hate minis, QBZ is ass, M24 is boring. I think the M16 pulls it off the best. I could have picked any gun. It fit the skin I was going for. Also look how the 4x blends in with the skin. This has been in the works for a long time.

Now all I need is a blue crosshair.

I wish I knew the MK47 was coming out.

You can use all kinds of gift cards to subscribe, subway, best buy, Walmart gift cards. Twitch has over 300 ways to subscribe to a channel.

I think the new gun ADS speed is lower.

You know what they should do? Hear me out. They should come out with a Shroud Weapon Skin Package. Every single weapon. But it’s a gamble. It scrolls through 5 different weapons and you have to hope it lands on your weapon.

Shroud losing his mind (clip)

You know what would be even better? A shroud parachute skin.

Thank you guys for continuing your gifted sub for 1 dollar.

Alright, I can hear again.

I don’t even know what silent is anymore.

Ok my guy (character) is a little thick. He may be a little slow but he can punch!

I can run, look at him go!

(Connection lost 2 x ) Maybe I should play single player because I can’t stay connected in multiplayer.

Is there wild life? Is there A.I? Hey I got 1 fame point. Hey there’s a map! I didn’t expect there to be a map honestly.

I swear if it DC’s one more time bro. He’s going to become slim again with all that jogging. hehe.

Well we got a shotgun but no ammo for it. At least you regain your stamina pretty quick.

Game looks pretty good, like OK-ish looks alright, nothing special. They focused on character models. I probably should have built my model to be fit. Maybe it will help me.

I can’t hold shit. F’n Crocks. No one wears crocks. It’s 2018! Energy? I don’t have anything to eat. I’m probably going to die. Do I die instantly? A candle. Can I eat a candle? An egg (eats) haha nothing like some raw eggs. Please give me something real to eat. What’s that? (finds cabbage and eats it.) My eating speed maxed out. What did that do for me? Anything? Not really. I feel like cabbage isn’t going to help me. Parsley. I don’t want to eat it all. Can I cancel? I think I made my character too fat.

I’m going to go there after I eat a few more cucumbers.

C’mon bro. I think if you eat too much, too fat. You’re fine. (clip)

I’m hungry, I know not much we can do about it. I need many things. I feel like the loot is bad or I’m unlucky. This dude is an absolute unit. Thanks man. I’m going to be alive for not even a day.

Look at this place, there’s bound to be food in here!

The game Disconnected – Goddamnit! I’m all the way back here!

This is not BR, this is more like DayZ. Think of this as uh..

We’re going to this compound and get spaghetti-o’s a shotgun, a backpack. What the? There’s a f’n robot in there! Let’s go fat man! How is there nothing in the fridge? MP5 mag. A bag! Haha we’re going to make it. I have really high stealth for a fat man. I’m stealthy. Would you like to try this game Jeremy? I have a code for you. Well we got a gun now. A work jacket! It’s happening! It’s DayZ.

Yes (found food) (clip)

(Gets shot by robot sentry & dies)

Oh god I thought I’d have a new character. How do I get  re-do? They throw zombies at you too. Oh god I’m at the bottom of the map. You have to leave to delete your character? It’s really weird how you run. You use mouse wheel up.

How do I take a shit chat? There’s events? Team death-match. Entry fee 10 fame points. Fame points is like your currency. Don’t mess with the robots. I shouldn’t have ever died. But I did it for the content.

Yes! My little pony backpack. Looks so stupid ha ha. I think a lot of the animations don’t even exist and have place-holders. Oh shit you can vault!

I’m taking a shit in the tub. Ha ha ha! At least I shit in the tub an not just out and about (pisses in tub too) ha ha. When you gotta go you gotta go. Bro I still don’t have food.

(Disconnected again) We lost our pink jacket. Well I’m sad. I wonder if the loot is the same in the same spot. God I’m so lost. It’s kind of tedious looking through everything.

This game is kind of cool. There’s a lot of people on this server. I feel like I have to know what server I’m in. Is there a way of checking?

Ha ha look at my character.

Keep the fat boy or new character, chat?

I feel like there’s going to be a meta in this game. This is where I spawned last time. I found rifles more than pistols. Damn I spawned so far up. This match is huge! I wonder if there are vehicles in the build?

Oh there’s cooking.

I feel like when this game comes out in the future there won’t be a map. Is there an auto-run? I would hope so. I’m excited for 1st person only servers.

Seems way easier to find loot than DayZ.

Zombie’s come at night. Military base is down by B3.

Come on man. You’re hitting the seat! My character looks ridiculous.

I found some cereal! Oh there’s a guy here! I can’t stop! I’m going to die! Hello? Do you have a can opener? Once the robot spots you it will one-shot you.

Zombie! Ah shit! (Climbs up ladder) You’ll never get me up here!

An MP5! There’s a guy next to me.

Goes AFK to answer door 11:00AM PST

I’ll be right back.

This game is so strange, it’s like DayZ. It really wants people to fight. There are events.

The server Disconnected again. (Respawns) Well the weather is nice now.

Holey Shit this backpack is huge! Damn I don’t have ammo anymore. My character is actually doing really well!

Yes. Alright we got our ammo back. I’m pretty sure your weapon quick access is bugged.

I like the movement in this game. This is pretty much DayZ 2.0. But it looks like it has more arcade-y type stuff.

How do you get fame? This dude has 335 fame (Mike has 2 fame.)

I have an MP5, but I can only shoot 1 bullet at a time. Because I don’t have a mag.

Oh there’s an airfield in B1. You can use fame to buy stuff back if you die.

There you are (anyTHING)! Damn it’s laggy.

Yeah game’s cool. It’s going to be hard to shoot people with lag like this. We should try to find an animal and kill it with your .22.

Server disconnect again.

I found more 9 mm ammo. Apparently the company tweeted about 30 minutes ago and are working on it (the disconnects). Bro I have 30 shells. If you want a shotgun, man. I think you left it in the police station. Food struggle, man that’s all this game is. It’s always something.

Get me outta here!

(They meet up with 2 other random people) Is that shroud!? If you search the zombie, all his stuff pops out onto the ground.

Don’t mind me just cutting up some zombie meat. Guts, arm, leg, guts, guts…

I think there is a memory leak. After a Disconnect my frames are ok at 130 then get progressively worse.

Oh you left click on the knife, then left click on a can of food you can open it. Then right-click on the can to eat. Ohhh.

(looting a mil base) There’s a drone! I’m trying to single shot the drone! (Jeremy dies) I’m dead Mike. The robot peeks me through a crack. I trying to find your body. I want your backpack but it will take forever to loot.

I don’t have any Kar ammo. How many times do I have to tell you this? I have no food. My frames have been slowly fading away (down to 45).

I feel like you can get geared up pretty quickly unlike DayZ.

Coffee Break AFK 12:50PM PST

Yeah the loot there is crazy, I’m trying to make my way to the airfield. My food is really good. That MRE is still in my system, just chillin.

Oh I don’t need so much gunpowder. I think I have to keep the toolbox in my hand. Oh It’s 4 slots. No it isn’t it’s 6.

You can make wild fires. You can burn some shit down!

That’s how you get fame, the more crafting you do. The way the map is designed is really cool for sniping. Shelter is a squad spawn point.

The game is interesting for sure. They have a realistic nutrition monitor, but they have so many arcade elements. I don’t know what they’re going for. Now it looks like they want a more arcade-style DayZ.

Accidentally killed Vader (clip)

You can respawn on a Squad, or respawn on person. I just want to go out with a bang and stop playing. It’s cool though, I like it.

I’m coming for that ass! (clip)

Did you meet my friend? (clip)

119 Fame Points

Troy yelps: Uh oh, I gotta go AFK - The puppy's more important than the game! 3:15 PM PST

I can spawn right outside of here for 75 fame points.

Peeing on Shroud (clip)

I’m logging out and logging in to fix my FPS. (leaves game at 45 FPS, rejoins at 95FPS)

Zero kills? What do you mean? I’ve gotten so many kills it’s bugged.

I’m going to start a team deathmatch, blueteam. Alright so we’re going to try this deathmatch system.

Woah, this is dope! I got a flashlight on my head. This is cool!

We’re going AK baby!

This has nothing to do with survival. Bro, I got a drone on me! You earn fame points if you win. We traded (simultaneous deaths)! You can trade in this game. This is like the worst gun play I’ve ever seen. Dude it is bad. I just head shot that guy.

This is a cool idea though. People are just teleporting.

You don’t even have to play scum you can just Team Death Match. My fame doubled.

AFK 4:40PM PST

This is so f’n wrong dude.

I don’t think I can play another hour of this. The fame points are cool. I played that game for 7 hours. I probably won’t play again until the update happens. Server performance is probably one of the worst. It probably won’t play well until 3 years from now. It’s a good meme game. $20 is not bad that’s ok.

Now we’re playing another BR game, Last Tide.

Last Tide Battle Royale 5:00PM PST

This is my first game, will give it whirl. God the mouse movement feels so weird in this game.

This BR is crazy because you can’t see far. This is so weird. He’s got a sniper? How do I make it burst? Oh (B). First it was sniper, then shotgun, then sniper again.

There’s a boat! Gimme loot gimme gimme gimme loot. I guess when you hit them it reveals them? I thought that’s what the flare was for. I have a tracker barrel? Ohhh. Ohhhhhhhh. That’s what that does.

Interesting game. I feel like they need a way to speed up movement? Maybe fly?

I need to go AFK (5:34PM PST)

Cyberpunk 2077 walk-through

Ok! Borderlands. That’s cool (slowmo). Oh god, TOS, TOS!

This looks like Borderlands. This game is definitely going to be streamed on twitch. Sex scenes, boobs and titties. Nobody looks around like that but this is kinda cool.

This game is going to probably be pretty sick. Yeah there’s nudity in a lot of games. It’s fine in stream so why not a trailer? I hate the slow pan. It makes me cringe when I see a slow pan I f’n hate it.

I wonder if you can drive in this game? Who walks in this game though.

Stream end 6:00 PM PST
