I decided to try it.
Okay, so I decided to try and write this silly article article. It probably won’t be as interesting as the mod post, but we’ll see what I can do.
Trying To Make It As A Twitch Streamer Almost Killed Me – Kotaku 2/24/17
I can’t say that this is really a good article to read if you’re a streamer, but it does show a bit of the darker side. I would imagine that health was never a primary concern before that. Kinda like with me. Though I’ve had tests recently that said that things are pretty well hunky dory in my world.
Of course, everyone on Twitch wants to be popular, and yes, there are times an audience will wander away at the commercials, but they’re not necessarily your targets anyways. They’re most likely people that wander from stream to stream in the first place.
So, am I going to stream after reading that? I don’t know. I doubt that I’d be doing it at times that would be really popular, but maybe I’m wrong. I haven’t even decided if I’m going to do that and/or record videos. It was a good time, so maybe I should think about that part a bit.
Anyways, about the article again, it’s kinda a scary thought about what your body does or doesn’t do when it’s sitting in front of a screen all the time. I feel like I should take a lesson from that, but probably won’t.
The Streamer Who’s Nearly Finished Beating All 714 NES Games – Waypoint 2/24/17
This is something else, that’s for sure. I don’t know that I could handle some of those older games. Though, also with some of them, they don’t have a specific ending, they just get harder and harder until they’re impossible.
At any rate, that’s a huge feat. And he did it with actual cartridges and hardware, not an emulator. That’s pretty cool right there.
Not a whole lot to say about that, though I hope someday I can come up with something nifty to get a writeup about.
How two Cities: Skylines modders turned hobbyist work into life-changing careers – PC Gamer 3/3/17
I’ve seen a lot of these type of articles over the years. Modding can be a good way to get into the games industry. It’s always amazing how that can work out. Of course, you’re getting your stuff out there, and being popular means people like it.
A Team Of No Man’s Sky Players Have Spent Months Mapping A Corner Of The Universe – Kotaku 3/9/17
A game that I still haven’t played yet. I was originally going to start it the day it came out, like I did with Fallout 4, but things ended up not working out that way, and it sits on my hard drive, hoping for better days.
I can imagine that there’s a lot out there to explore, way beyond just what you see during regular gameplay. And that these people have started mapping it out is crazy. That’s got to be one hell of a project. That sounds like something that I would enjoy doing.
I’ll have to search for their area once I finally give the game a go. It would be interesting to see.
Well, that’s all the articles that I had saved up. As you can see, I’ve been sitting on them a while. I actually had a couple more that I had thought about posting up, but I ended up closing the tab or going to another link or something, and just kinda forgot about it.
I don’t know how I feel about doing this one. It wasn’t quite as organic as the mod post, but then, I had my initial thoughts about these a little while ago, so I suppose that didn’t help a whole lot.
At any rate, that’s what I have for now. Not sure what I’m going to do next. Maybe Fallout, maybe dinking around with a few more things. We will see. Right now, it’s cig time.
