streamer wannabe

Starting today I added a new feature to my website. One that probably won’t get used a whole lot but whatever, right?

You can now see if I’m streaming live on Twitch. What is Twitch? Twitch is a website where you can host live streams of whatever you’re doing. In most cases it’s people playing video-games. Somehow people love watching others play video-games, myself included. Some make a big deal out of it. Having green screens and what not. Dress up and have an entire act.

For now it will be without a microphone and video of me playing but in the future I might add it. But I doubt people would actually want to watch me play games let alone see me or hear me in the process.

I don’t think this will be a great success. I might have a viewer or 2-3 max but that shouldn’t stop me from sharing what I’m doing.
Currently I’m not playing any recent games. Right now I’m catching up with Fallout 4 and it’s DLC. In October the new Assassin’s Creed game will be released and I have it in pre-order so that will be a more interesting game for people to watch.
Maybe in between Fallout 4 and Assassin’s creed I catch up on Elite Dangerous again. However this is even more boring to watch to be honest.

Twitch also allows me to upload previous sessions to YouTube. Last night I streamed for nearly 2 hours and that’s available on YouTube right now. But you could also watch it on Twitch.

So basically I’m trying to become a streamer wannabe. Thinking I’m really cool by streaming a game and doing what everyone else is doing. I don’t have the illusion I’ll become some famous, rich streamer or YouTube star but if one or two people enjoy watching my channel I reached my goal. People do seem to enjoy watching others play games.

Anyways, if I’m streaming, come join me and see me fail. I’ll probably be back online later tonight.
