Update: Stream done now. I'll make a new journal post when I or someone else streams again, so that you guys can be notified.
So, erryponay, there's something else that I totally forgot to mention before I started and should mention more in any case.
As some of you may have possibly seen, I have a certain site called cinemaquestria.com as "my' site linked in my profile. I mentioned it in only one journal before, but now it's finally time to mention some more stuff!
Well, first of all, as the site's name somewhat suggests, the site streams things. And among those things are games, or rather, its streamers playing games. And among those people is me! As one of the founders of the site, it is only part of my duty to entertain (and hopefully increase) its audience.
Yesterday I did my very first livestream that was both longer than an hour and done for an audience bigger than one person. It was a stream of Darksiders II, specifically its arena mode. And today, in less than half an hour in fact, I'll be streaming Darksiders 1! I'll start from the very beginning there and play through the game over the next few streaming sessions.
For the record, Darksiders is a hack-and-slash game that is reminiscent of Legend of Zelda, God of War and a few other things. It's much better than it sounds.
It won't be the only game I'll play on stream, either. Afterwards I'm planning on more - another hack-and-slasher, some point-and-click adventures... I plan on streaming fairly often, so if you would like to see a few games with some of my running commentary (dedicated to the game itself, not myself (I'm looking at you, certain "youtube stars")), I'll be happy to see you there.
In other notes, I also want to mention other things CinemaQuestria shows. Other CQ staff members stream as well: MrBen (EkardShadowreaver) streams some shows and games such as the Legend of Zelda ones, Mario Kart and so on, EverlastingJoy streams Attack on Titan and Madoka Magica (while waiting for the second AoT DVD) as well as some random silliness, Mekapi sometimes shows games and series like Once Upon A Time... The list is incomplete, as we continue recruiting and people set up to stream. We don't really have a schedule yet, but normally the streams are on in the American evening hours.
And of course, there is Babble with Bronies, the original core that established CQ in the first place. It's a discussion and spotlight show, where we feature fanmade pictures, videos and other things like that and, in the second half of our two-hour programming, either watch and discuss an episode of pony (we're currently in S2 in terms of reviews) or interview a person from the official franchise staff or from the fandom (ranging from Laser Pon3 to MLP comic writers as of this moment). BwB's main point is constant audience interaction, quite unlike a normal, one-sided podcast - the audience are a part of our streams; we have the chatroom open in the stream for that very reason. It would be great to see more of you guys come to us and participate. The BwB streaming time is always on Sunday, 4:00 PM EST, and it goes for two hours.
This is where all of this happens, my about-to-start gamestream included: >>> www.cinemaquestria.com/stream/ <<<
P.S. I fail at writing journals. Seriously, I just meander around like crazy in these texts.
P.P.S. As if I had too few things to do to begin with.
