What Games

What I Do Hearthstone Arena I’m more likely to be streaming this than anything else. Steam Games Reviews I occasionally receive gift copies of games and I’ll play them for up to an hour, then give a review at the end. The comments on these videos are great because YouTube users are really, really dumb….


Impressions Upon Return

I will say immediately: the average twitch viewer has become incredibly more positive. People apologize or leave immediately if they offend me, and that is a truly incredible thing. It inspires me to be more pleasant to them, when they are rarely ever the same people, and that really surprised me. More than anything else….


Hearthstone Arena Time Commitment Heuristics

I have an enormous preoccupation with data, just below the capacity that would make it a marketable skill, and just above the point where I actually do anything. With the announcement of Hearthstone Arena leaderboards, I decided to determine how much time I would actually have to spend playing/streaming to place on the leaderboard. Don’t…


Troll Trolling Trolls

It really amazes me how adamant some viewers are about how a game “should” be played. Pictured above is Cosmo, and his Cheesepuff.

I highly recommend you watch and pay attention,…


Balancing Games

I don’t know how the otherĀ  channels do it. That is, running multiple “Let’s Play” series at the same time. Even with my new computer, editing/rendering/uploading takes long enough that I’m not sure I could fit more than one play in per day. I’m burned out by the time I’ve got a video uploaded. FTL…
