launching this weekend?? i guess??? depends on how much the baby sleeps????
doing my research
(the answer is yes, as long as you're not visibly intoxicated)
I will stream... something... as soon as my mic shockmount arrives this weekend. I hope people enjoy me streaming pc games from the stone basement of my 116 year old house
my internet at home is so good I am called to stream, it is truly the life that chose me
this is a powerful energy
Don’t tell Larry but I’m doing an impression of him to test my mic settings
nerdy streaming stuff
productive night of setup testing! i have one of the most janked-together streaming setups imaginable but i think it will be... interesting
i'm using an imac, and i don't have a capture card, so i'm gonna stream mac games, geforce now, ps4 remote play, etc
i am definitely taking advantage of my gigabit up/down fiber and the fact that I spent the time running cat6a everywhere
this will not be a lag-free stream, but I tried playing tetris effect and it worked pretty well
downloading some intense gamer content to stream
Frog Detective 2 makes Frog Detective 1 look like Frog Detective 3
is this what they call a brand identity
i am going to start my stream by lighting a margiela candle as a tribute to zero viewers
i'm a dad who streams videogames in their basement, yeah, we exist.
current stream schedule (all times Eastern, start and end times depend on baby):
+ Mondays 8-9:30PM: #MechMonday (BattleTech, MechWarrior, basically anything with giant robots)
+ Tuesdays 8-9:30: #TinyGameTuesday (I'll play something indie from itch.io or steam that no one else is streaming)
help me pick a game to play tonight for #TinyGameTuesday
1: Royals (https://ashervo.itch.io/royals) a retro 1-bit peasant simulator
2. I'll Take You To Tomato Town (https://adamgryu.itch.io/tomato-town) described as "probably a grocery store simulator"
3. Off Peak (https://cosmoddd.itch.io/off-peak) "You're stranded at cathedral-like train station in the near future, searching for a ticket out of town"
Gotta say I’m looking forward to streaming whatever this is tonight
gonna get up to whatever this involves
I'm gonna change up the schedule, because three days in a row didn't seem great and also I've had some challenges streaming local games vs. captured from other sources so tiny game tuesday is out i think. but i didn't play yesterday so I will stream …something... tonight

@infernusgoatus I think it’s spelled wagyu
