The next videochat with fans will be at 2pm EST on March 4th at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast. As a reminder, this one is 2 hours earlier than the usual times. You can ask questions / comments you’d like for me to talk about here.

I’m frankly embarrassed I don’t have a new video for you yet, but I’ve been working on a couple simulatenously, one of which is the Freeman’s Mind. The next FM will be a longer episode since I figure I owe you guys at least that much. All I can do is just keep working on them, though I won’t be cutting my sleep for these. Expect several videos for March!

I finally got a time for the other event I’m entering in for the GOG Winter Games thing they’re having. This is a competitive event I was invited to where I stream playing a game against other streamers and if I score well then people who sign up have increased odds of getting a prize, as I understand it so far. Here is the signup option, pick “Arstotzka” if you want to bet on me to try and get you free games.

The next game is Unreal Tournament for February 24th at 1pm EST with me at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast. You can also view all the contestants with e-sports style commentary at twitch.tv/gogcom.

My stream will be uploaded to the Accursed Farms Junk channel afterward. I don’t know how it’s going to go or what the format will be. If it’s deathmatch, I’m only a so-so player. If it’s onslaught, I’ll definitely do some damage. Last time I did streaming with GOG, I think there was a fundamental miscommunication with how it would work, so it was a little chaotic, because people were talking at the same time I was planning to. This time, the idea is strangers will be talking on the stream before and in between rounds, but I’ll have things muted and talk to the audience while the game is going. It’s still a little bit disorienting to me, I guess this is why I’m not a professional streamer.

On that note, I’m sorry to say Freeman’s Mind (and another video I’m working on) is running late, due mainly to complications I’m having with paperwork involved with staying in the country. I’m pretty sure I’ll get it sorted out, but it’s eaten up days of my time (I’ve had to visit the foreigner office 5 times in the past week and I’m still not done). Normally I would cancel a streaming event like this and just continue working on the videos to get them out sooner, but since this involves other people and prior commitments, I’m going through with it. The release time for both videos is as soon as possible, but realistically it will probably be early March. More videos!

Dead Game News is mutating! This episode is only news about Dead Game News and my future plans for dead games in general. This is also the LAST episode on the DGN channel! There will still be future Dead Game News episode, but things are changing. Try to watch this before February 20th if you’re interested, the entire channel gets unpartnered from Youtube after that!

I’ll be doing my best to have more real videos this month, particularly Freeman’s Mind.

This is a notice I didn’t get the details on until today, but I’ve been invited to a twitch competition by GOG where they have various people play different games on twitch. I agreed to show up for two of the “events”, Epic Pinball (the old DOS game) and Unreal Tournament 2004. I’m still not 100% sure how this works, but Epic Pinball starts tomorrow and my understanding is there are giveaway prizes to the audience if I do well. Here is a signup thing they have for a chance to win the prizes (I think). I believe they mentioned mice and I can only assume they’re giving out free games since this is GOG:

Here are the dates:

February 17, Noon - 2PM EST: Me playing Epic Pinball
February 24th, don’t know what time yet: Me competing in Unreal Tournament 2004

My streaming will be on twitch.tv/rossbroadcast, although GOG will also have their stream at twitch.tv/gogcom which will switch between other competitors and have commentary like a sporting event, I think. I’m still a bit confused how all this works.

In other news, my voice is about 95% recovered, there should be a new Dead Game News later today, and I hope to have more Freeman’s Mind this month.

Here’s the February chat with fans. I’m mostly recovered from my sickness, except for my voice, it got to be a real strain towards the end. Work is progressing on the videos in almost every other way except voice acting, so I should be well prepared once my voice fully returns. There were a lot of announcements this time related to the movie and future videos. So if you’re a modeler, animator, composer, coder, pc gaming enthusiast, linux enthusiast, or 3d printer, there are different announcements I wouldn’t mind feedback on for each category, those are all towards the beginning. More videos once my throat fully recovers!
