While I was working on the Elgato StreamDeck review, I thought I should also take some time to give an overview of TipeeeStream as a whole. Elgato seemed very deliberate with their close integrations and while OBS, Twitch, and Twitter all seemed pretty obvious to me, TipeeeStream was something of an oddity in that group. […]

Listening to music while playing games is likely a common combination for many of us.
