Is it just me, or was I REALLY stretching that headline for the sole purpose of getting to use a pun? Like REEEEEALLY stretching?
After a lot of pushing and prodding, I’ve decided to create a Twitch profile and stream whenever I game; which, in the case of Hearthstone, is basically at least an hour a night. So I laced up my boots, put on my Sunday best, and got to work creating my channel: http://www.twitch.tv/xanderated/
I’ve watched a handful of streamers and really enjoy seeing how they game and their thought processes behind every move. It helps me be a better gamer (even though I’m already pretty leet-sauce, #SorryNotSorry). I guess my only apprehension in doing this is the fact that I don’t have a method to my madness, per se. Just like in my personal and professional life, I tend to just feel my way through. Granted, that usually results in me squealing at the computer screen when things don’t go my way, but from what my fellow gamers tell me, that’s kind of the best part of gaming with me on Vent, Mumble or even Google+…
… did they just call me a Drama Queen?… I am both delighted and insulted by this.
N-E-WAYZ, not sure when I’ll start streaming. I feel like there’s a lot of stuff I still have to research and figure out before I embark on my maiden voyage. There are just questions that need to be answered. For instance:
“What will I wear?”
“Do I have good lighting?”
“Does this game make me look fat?”
Something tells me that my priorities aren’t exactly aligned with your typical Twitch Gamer. Hell, I spent a good hour just creating my profile banner above because I wanted it to look HAWT! I was going for high end Classic NES chic. What do you think? Did it work? Are you buying my bullspit? No? Damnit.
