Dead Game News returns! This is the new format I mentioned in the previous episode. While it’s less fact-dense than before, I think overall people will find this much more watchable than the old format; much more effort was put into it writing and production-wise. This is another case where even if you know the news I’m reporting, I think you’ll hear stuff from me on it that you won’t hear elsewhere. Next video should be Freeman’s Mind!
Here’s the March videochat. No special announcements this time, just more videos coming! Expect a new one tomorrow, with the next Freeman’s Mind following ASAP after that, though I can’t exactly predict when. My plan is at least one Game Dungeon and FM2 episode in addition to that, work on a couple other videos and just videos, videos, videos for this month!
I was told there was some popping in the audio this time. I’m not sure if it’s there in the recording, but if you have ideas on it, you’re welcome to let me know. It was recorded using a USB DAC.
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.
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.
