Twitching on Twitter

Sep 26, 2015 | | Say something

Being a prodigious procrastinator, I have done everything in my power to improve my viewer count other than actually streaming. I’m not being scientific about anything, I’m just sharing a resource I’ve discovered. I already have the automatic tweet occurring when I start my stream, and I’m not going to disable it, because I will […more]

Dozen Arena Mage Newb

Aug 26, 2015 | | Say something

I achieved my first 12-win Arena today. As with all accomplishments in my life, allow me to reduce the shit out of it so it doesn’t sound like that much of an achievement any more. lol sux Mage incidentally, both games that were lost were lost to Mage, but I was afk for one of […more]

Troll Trolling Trolls

Aug 9, 2015 | | Say something

It really amazes me how adamant some viewers are about how a game “should” be played. Pictured above is Cosmo, and his Cheesepuff. If you don’t know who Cosmo is, I’d say he’s probably best known for his Ocarina of Time speedruns, though he runs other games as well. If you aren’t familiar with speedrunning, […more]

STREAM QUALITY: Broad Chat

Aug 6, 2015 | | Say something

There are plenty of technical issues that can “break” a stream: it buffers too much, it’s too blurry, the webcam has a poor angle, the microphone is picking up the noise of your spouse beating the family dog with a wrench. These are all specific nitpicks which are solvable by some direct method. Usually there’s […more]

Hearthstone SCALE

Jul 31, 2015 | | Say something

I have a dirty, filthy lust for spreadsheets and initialisms. I’ve identified that the game that intersects on “size of audience” and “my ability to play” is definitely Hearthstone. There’s no doubt in my mind there are games I like more, nor doubt that there are more popular games. But if there’s a game that […more]

THAT VOICE

Jul 12, 2015 | | Say something

Was watching a friend play Dragon Age 2 yesterday and I mentioned that I recognized someone’s voice. “Where do you NOT hear a voice actor from somewhere else?” he asked me. I have no evidence to contradict him. Yo Buddy… Still Alive? It takes a real man…. Legacy Part 2 – Full Darkseid Fight Also: […more]

O HAI

Jul 7, 2015 | | Say something

I started playing Eve Online a day or two ago. I’m mostly playing because I want to scum through some swarmy nullsec PvP, but I decided to make a hauler/trade altĀ  (pictured above and below) so I can quickly/easily transport more ships for my main to die horribly in. I’m so fucking excited.

Missile Spam

Jul 4, 2015 | | Say something

I’m buddies with a fellow twitch streamer: zebra_hoedown He seems to be willing to get me started in Eve Online, something I’ve been interested but wary of doing for quite some time. As I’ve been playing a lot of idle games (Clicker Heroes…) lately, the skill training system is actually rather appealing to me. I […more]

Routine Forming Hack

Jun 20, 2015 | | Say something

  When I used to really care about lifting, I remember being frequently asked “what is the best routine?” There are many ways to answer that. The best general answer that I didn’t come up (because it’s more broadly applicable) is “the one you can stick to.” But with a slightly narrower scope to the […more]

My favorite streamer right now is Ratsmah. He’s super helpful if you’re into dry sarcasm and being good at Hearthstone arena. (Also super aesthedorable, see below.) http://youtu.be/K0pVi7m0M2wVideo can’t be loaded: Positivity Day (http://youtu.be/K0pVi7m0M2w)
