  1. C'mon now. We were all 12 year olds once.
  2. You joke but this kind of things adds up. Many people don't realize just how much they spend on these small expenses. They add up quickly, especially when viewed yearly. The cheapest Netflix is $9/month, or $108/year. As another example, if you could save yourself $30/month, it doesn't sound like much. However, that's a yearly savings of $360/year. Again, not huge but enough to justify finding cheaper/free alternatives. Also, not sure what level of Netflix he had, but $9 is the cheapest and you don't get HD. The other packages are $13/month ($156/year) and $16/month ($192/year.)
  3. I use a Twitch extension called "Streamlabs Stream Schedule & Countdown." Not sure if he uses Streamlabs but even if not he could configure it just for this plug in. Pretty sure you can even have multiple times in a single day since he streams twice a day. I dig the look too.
  4. Did he actually say this? If so, that's a ridiculous excuse. Lords of the Fallen wasn't even a bad game, though it absolutely was buggier than it should have been. I've not got a lot of time into Surge 2 yet but so far I've loved it and have been hearing very good things about it. Would be ashamed to miss out on a great Souls-like because a game the company made 5 years ago was buggy.
  5. What are the revenge kills or whatever? A mob who liked another player I presume? Any idea what the player who died gets? Not had much time to play due to prepping for TwitchCon and some personal things, but I've really liked it so far. Got to the octopus.
  6. ... I am absolutely dumbfounded by this. If I had read this as a quote, I'd assume he was being taken out of context it's so bad. I didn't watch the whole vid; was he trolling the guy who asked the question? Is there some context I'm missing here? I know this board is like 90% trolling so my post will be dismissed as such (if it's even read) but this is one of the most ass-backward mentalities you can have as a streamer. I'm a streamer myself and I watch lots of streams and I cannot fathom any other streamer ever believing or even outright saying that the streamer isn't responsible for keeping the interaction going, both by responding to chat and by initiating discussion themselves. As a streamer, if the chat isn't moving or is going off-topic, it's THE STREAMER'S JOB to do their best to fix it. That's just one thing that separates great streamers from mediocre ones. One of the things people love about streaming is the interaction and that goes both ways! When the streamer is pro-active, it gives chat things to talk about (that the streamer wants them talking about) and builds community. To think it's the viewer's responsibility to give the streamer things to chat about is absurd. Obviously it's great when they do but it sure as hell isn't their job. "Why would I want to ask you questions?" Unbelievable. I'm sure he'll blow this off but, fuck, as a streamer, this attitude sticks in my craw. To be fair, let me be more constructive: Here's the type of questions I ask viewers; "What are you guys doing this weekend?" "What do you guys think of this game so far?" "What quests do you want to see done next?" "What character do y'all want to see?" "Anyone else have this game and if so what do you think?" "What quest option did y'all pick and what happened when you did?" "Did y'all see the new trailer for Whatever Simulator 2020?" Etc etc etc. It's not like you need to be constantly coming up with things either. If you notice things are getting dull or chat is going in a direction you don't like, take it on yourself to get things going in a natural way, not by complaining that people are ignoring you.
  7. I think pretty much everyone realizes that this is BS. There are plenty of people out there who work 40+ hour/week jobs, have a wife and kids, and still manage to exercise. I get it. I lack the wife/kids but I work a standard 40 hour job and stream about 25 hours/week. I also hate exercise. When I'm done with a stream or doing the stuff I need to do on my days off the last thing I want to do is exercise. However, the truth is is that I DO have time for it; I just need to get off my lazy fat ass and DO IT. This is important. Some people get overwhelmed with the idea of going to the gym, exercising 5 days a week, etc. However, if they start off with something like a 15 minute walk every day that will get the positive momentum going. I'm trying to get back on the exercise horse myself and it's far more approachable when you start slow with the potential of ramping up once it becomes an ingrained part of your schedule.
  8. Indeed. I'm hoping for another demo/beta/whatever as I didn't get in on the last one. Nioh is the best Souls-like and really hoping the 2nd one fixes the issues of the first like lack of enemy variety, having special attacks like parry being useless against 70% of the enemies, etc. I'd also like to see them do away with the lootstravaganza-style item system but don't see that happening.
  9. It's not THAT bad. I've done 1 24-25 hour stream every year for the past ~5 years for Extra Life. It's tough sure but as long as you get plenty of sleep the day before and have some energy drinks handy it's not horrible.
  10. Fucking hell, why do devs insist on using motion blur? I've never talked to anyone who actually likes it. Whenever I install a game that shit gets turned off immediately.
  11. How many hours of gameplay are in a typical stream? I think most would consider a marathon stream to be, bare minimum, 8 hours but more like 10-12. Yes, it's exhausting. That's why it's a marathon, not a normal stream. :p
  12. I saw a good bit of the WoW segment and yeah it was boring. Yes it's lame you can't block group invites but I'm pretty sure he never tried blocking those people as was suggested by chat many times since doing that (I believe) blocks group invites. He also kept saying he couldn't do quests even though chat, again, told him repeatedly that he can do them because mob credit goes to first hit and he's a hunter which has an insta-cast. He obviously didn't want to even play WoW again and, given that he didn't even try to do anything other than run around randomly, it felt that he sabotaged it so he could say "See? I told you guys it'd be boring!" As others have said, I think the current setup undermines the purpose of the Rage-a-Thon. Why get pissed that you can't progress in a game when you know you're only going to play it for 2 hours and never again? Suggested changes: 1) Less games. For 8 hours of gameplay, limit to 1-2 games 2) Play only 1 game but have goals that must be reached, else the stream can't end or some other negative thing happens. Examples: Dark Souls naked run, must defeat Ornstein and Smough. God of War NG+ on highest difficulty, must get to Freya. Fallout 4 survival difficulty, no mods, must find Sean.
  13. It isn't a clone. It's a Souls-like (enemies respawn on death or when resting at checkpoints, looped maps with unlockable shortcuts, etc.,) but far from a clone. I watched streamers play a few hours and see similarities but it's different enough to not be a clone. It looks pretty damn fun and I've been thinking of picking it up but with WoW Classic, Blair Witch, and other random games I'm playing I don't know when I'd get to it. Both versions of the weapon are slow but it hits hard and staggers well. Just need to use it's range to your advantage and get the timing down and it wrecks. I think there are a few things that help with weapon speed too, can't recall what they are off hand. Not really related, but also note that a full set of the same kind of armor (rig) it will give you a set bonus. I'm not sure if they mention that in tutorials but I seem to recall it being vague or not pointed out at all until you had a full set. It isn't THAT bad. The problem is when you start NG+, the very first (or near first) enemy you run in to is an insane bad ass who does a shit ton of damage. Once you get past him it's the normal mobs but with more (but not ludicrous) damage.
  14. Really looking forward to this. The first game didn't get enough love. It definitely had it's issues but it's one of the better Souls-like games; better than Dark Souls 2 and Sekiro IMO. Early impressions I've heard say that it's way better than the first. Check out that PAX you got from the first boss. If you like it's attacks, you can use that until end-game. It's really damn good, especially the running attack. Good luck! Hope all comes out well
  15. Damn, really? If so that seriously cuts down on possibilities. For example, Morrowind isn't going to make anyone rage in an hour. Hell, the first 30 minutes will be character creation, getting off the boat and talking to NPCs. Basically, any game that doesn't jump straight into the action would be bad for this format IMO. In the future he may want to try a different format. For 6-8 hours, go with 2-3 games at 2-3 hours each. This allows for games that aren't non-stop gameplay rage but can cause rage moments. It also allows for some interesting run formats like Diablo 3 Hardcore mode, Dark Souls level 1 run, etc. That's not to say he can't use both formats for different rage-a-thons. Keep this current one for the more non-stop rage games like I Wanna Be the Guy, Getting Over It, Street Fighter, Super Meat Boy, etc.
