Another week, another stream schedule. This week is a few more days than usual due to some schedule changes. I’ve also added on Life is Strange this week. I had so much fun playing through Episode 1 on stream (June 30th), that I figured I’d make my way through Episode 2 this week!
I’m also celebrating 100 followers on Saturday around 7PM EST/11PM GMT on stream with a $10 USD steam code giveaway. If you’d like to participate, you must be following my Twitch page, and you must be in chat at the time to enter the raffle.
Thanks to everyone who’s come out to support me! I’ve been having so much more fun with streaming than I initially thought I would! Y’all rock!
Stream schedule for the week! My schedule has changed some during the week with extracurriculars, so I’ve had to do a bit of fiddling with my schedule. I still don’t have a schedule that is set in stone, yet, but I do hope these weekly schedules help folks out in the meantime. Be sure to follow Twitter for updates and the like!
I’m also getting close to 100 Twitch followers, so I plan to do a giveaway of a $10 USD Steam gift card (on stream, followers only) and set up my cam as the 100 follower goal. Let’s see if I can reach 100 by the end of the month!
A quick post to update my streaming schedule for the week! It’s a short streaming week because I have a lot going on IRL this week.
And don’t worry, I’m back to actually blogging, soon. The computer issues I’ve been having, plus a lot going on have made it a bit overwhelming to do much of anything other than turn on SLOBS while I do some gaming.
I’ve missed writing stuff out, so I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. I have a bunch of draft posts to poke at this week, so keep an eye here or on Twitter to see when I update.
I’ve really been enjoying streaming, even if computer issues messed things up for a few days. Come hang out with me! I’m trying to reach Affiliate by the end of May. I’d love if folks would come hang out and chat. It’s lonely when folks lurk and don’t talk with me.
Another drop of my stream schedule for the week! I’ve been having a lot of fun putzing around on stream, and I’d love if folks would join me! The more, the merrier! If you miss a stream, you can catch them on my twitch page, or on my YouTube channel.
And a note for those asking, yes, I have a new Twitter and Instagram! But it is mostly to share stream and more public-facing things. If you’re already following my private accounts (which is pretty much, at this point, a list of folks I enjoy following and interacting with), you don’t need to worry about missing anything. As for new folks, sorry! The private ones are private for a reason. Follow the public ones! You won’t miss much, don’t worry!
I started getting back into streaming this week back on Sunday with a somewhat last minute impromptu Sunday Skyrim stream, inspired by my best friend. I had a few folks stop by, which was very sweet of them (and I hope they had fun like I did!). But it was a bit annoying after the fact when I tried to upload it up to YouTube, and it flagged me.
So @YouTube flagged the video of my stream for inappropriate content and being against community guidelines due to repetitive-ness.
It seems to have been fixed because the video is once again available to link, and my community strike seems to be gone, though I was never notified of it being fixed. Which in and of itself adds to the annoying. I think what was most annoying about it is that it was flagged less than an hour after I uploaded it. Sometimes I wish there was a solid alternative to YouTube so I could diversify a bit more.
Because I enjoyed streaming Skyrim so much, I decided to randomly do a stream on Wednesday night of Dream Daddy (since I’ve also been trying to get through my massive Steam backlog…). It didn’t actually happen on time, which I think hurt, but I did do it, because I really enjoy the game. I’ve started up as the logistics storyteller for the Mind’s Eye Theatre home-brew Vampire I play, and our storyteller meetings aren’t on a set schedule. That fact is kind of hard for me, because I’m a very scheduled person to help keep my sanity. And the only time that worked out this past week was Wednesday, and it ate into stream time. I’m hoping we can get a bit better at scheduling so that I can have an easier time scheduling my streams for the week, though I did try to update social media and Twitch as soon as I knew I’d probably be late to streaming.
I’m not someone who can say “Yes, every Xday I can stream starting at Xtime”, but I can at the very least set up a schedule the week before and say, “Okay, here’s what it’ll be for the week!”. So I’m trying to work out what I can do for this coming week by Saturday, and post it.
I don’t expect to become huge on Twitch, but it’s something I enjoy doing, so I figured why the hell not.
A few days ago I was making a fuss because my Polepunzel box had just arrived, but the apartment office was closed and I couldn’t pick it up. My best friend, in his infinite wisdom (and wise-assery) sent me the following gif.
So of course I immediately thought, “Now I need to play Skyrim or Fallout”. I set up a quick poll, and folks voted for me to do a Skyrim stream! So I figured I’d start it up this Sunday. I don’t typically stream, but have been feeling a bit better with some medication changes, and I’ve had a bit more energy. Thus, I figured why not. I would like to try to get into streaming a bit more, so the only way to do it is just jump in.
I will be doing a Fallout 3 Let’s Play at some point because I’ve yet to finish the game at all, and one of my Patreon patrons has never played it, and thought it’d be interesting.
I hope folks will stop by the stream! I’m going to do at least one hour, maybe two. I can’t do much more than that because that’s food time for the pets, and I have some chores that’ll need to be finished. But I think it’s a good way to wade into the shallow end of the Twitch pool again.
I started these Gaming Goals posts back in June 2015 as a way to try to organize my gaming time around freelance obligations as well as my day-job and general life obligations. You can view the archive of goals and reviews here.
Richard expects me to do well this month.
I meant well in March, and then never made goals because real life got extremely overwhelming. May is kind of in-between overwhelming and lots of free-time at the moment. My weekends are fairly free (minus D&D), but my weeks are really busy. So I’m going to try to take it light on goals–especially because ThaydFest is a thing this month. The Secret World also might slow down some because one of our four-person-team is going to be gone most of May, and then Chaide is going to be gone most of June. But at least that gives me time to catch up on the videos.
