If you think that the emotes you have just aren’t enough, and you’re willing to spend a little money, then there’s no better way of doing that than to find a channel with emotes you like and subscribing. You can use sub emotes in every other channel on Twitch as often as you like. The site TwitchEmotes offers an extensive database if you want to see channels by its emotes, but I recommend exploring the channels and finding a streamer you really like!

PogChamp, one of the oldest emotes on Twitch, is based on Gootecks, a professional Street Fighter player, and is mainly used to express surprise in response to something happening on stream. PogChamp is based on this video from 2000, but was given the name PogChamp because of a Mad Catz fight stick promo released in 2011 for a tournament that Gootecks was competing in.
Kreygasm, an icon of the streamer Kreyg with his mouth open—apparently either shouting in excitement or having an orgasm—indicates great excitement. Basically, you can use it anywhere you would use “Whoa!” or “Holy shit!” Kreygasm is so popular that it’s spawned a whole subgenre of emotes, and several popular streamers have created custom icons of their own “gasm” faces.
Kappa is a grayscale photo of Josh DeSeno, a former Justin.tv employee. DeSeno had been working on the original chat client for Justin.tv when Kappa was added as an emote. This was not uncommon at the time as several Justin.tv employees had added various photos of their facial expressions—but DeSeno’s photo was much more popular than his peers’. He became the face of Twitch.
Gaming accessories can not only enhance your play, but can also help you store or record games. External hard drives let you expand the storage space of your gaming consoles or gaming PC. These devices are useful, as many newer games take up substantial hard drive space. Game capture devices let you record your play so you can upload it to the Internet and share with friends and social media followers. Whether you are relatively new to video games or are an experienced gamer, gaming accessories can greatly increase your enjoyment.
Your favorite video game characters can now interact with your video games using near field communication (NFC) technology.

To kick off our list for the best gaming gear, we have arguably one of the most important parts of not only hearing your opponents and teammates but communication, which can quite possibly make or break your win or loss column. The HyperX Cloud has received thousands of user reviews around the net to back up its reputation. Designed for pro gamers as it is specifically used by professional gaming organizations, It’s super comfortable with some nice and light weight leather memory foam ear cups. You’re also getting an extra set of velour ear cups in case you’d like to switch them out or you’ve already warn the previous out. The overall design is ‘over-ear’, which means they’ll be engulfing your entire ears to isolate sound and disallow from other ambient noise from the outside world in so it doesn’t cloud your experience. In terms of additional specs, it is equipped with 15-25k Hz frequency responses as well as 53 mm drivers, giving this headset superior audio performance, not to mention its enhanced comfort on top of it all.
