Giant game pack sorting stream

Itch.io had a gigantic game pack for sale a week or so ago, that ended up coming to 1700+ games. The majority of this stuff looked like games I wasn’t interested in, but there were some promising ones. I was going to attempt to filter through these on a livestream to see which ones I was interested in, and which I would pass on if people are interested. This will of course be to my own tastes (you can see those in my games list video ), but I’ll explain my rationale. In any event, some people may want to check the video afterwards at the end and see what I whittled down the list to. 

I originally thought I would be able to do this in one sitting, but that was back when it was “only” 700 games. I’ll just go at it for a few hours and see how many I get through. If you’re interested, it will be at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast at 5PM UTC on June 20th.

I've been doing the same thing for a while now too and I really think you're underestimating how many items are on that list. Even if you only spend around 30 seconds on average per item, it'll take you about 14.5 hours to get through them all.

 

Also a fair warning: a lot of them are not video games. There are many that are PDFs of table-top RPG rules, short stories, comics, art asset or sound effect packs for game creators and soundtracks.

This is music for my ears. This is the EXACT content I would like to see as a filler whose purpose is to keep the channel alive while working on The Movie:

  1. Takes literally zero effort to produce, because no editing
  2. Is something Ross wanted/needed to do anyway
  3. Is something Ross enjoys.

The cherry on top is that it's also

 

     4. Original

     5. Useful.

Oh I think I'll be able to spend a lot less than that.  It'll be tricky predicting my average though, since I bet a lot of them will get 2-3 seconds, but others could be up to a minute.  The short ones I think will outnumber the longer ones.   No idea if I'll get it done in one sitting though.

Will there be an archived video on YouTube? 

There always is.
