So I've skimmed through this thread and I have a question. What's Twitch?

(in 4 words or less)

It's Youtube for gaming!

Twitch is an app you can download on your PC, phone, smart TV, or gaming console and you can watch meatheads like myself play bideo games. You can also stream your video games, but it can require more computer horsepower than a casual gamer may want to invest in. I've heard professional streamers use a second PC to do nothing but stream their Twitch signal. :?

Good news: Finally got the new video card installed and running!

Bad news:
Streaming is better, but not as good as I want, but at least buffering times should be done with.

Ugly news:
Poker Night 2 isn't streamable anymore! It seems that certain games with licensed characters or music aren't allowed to be played online! I also tried a game called Flatout 2 which had edgy 90's bumper music in it and, yep, can't stream it!

I had to change my schedule for tonight. I'm going to try streaming a small indie game no one has ever heard of.

Unscheduled Twitch tonight... some indie scariness

World of Horror
Never played it. Heard it has the same feel as a Junji Ito story. If it's not all that, I'll default to Bioshock Remastered or Portal 2.

I'm also open for suggestions as long as they don't involve multiplayer fragfests or MMORPGs. I'd play with you gentle folks but I got that type of gaming out of my system during my Unreal Tournament/City of Heroes days.

Edit: forgot the time.... 7:30 PM CDT (Chicago)

Streamed about 4-1/2 hours of Portal 2, and the first 3-1/2 hours? No game audio.

*facepalm*

At least I got it figured out before the fun bouncy goo part :D

Streaming more SUPERHOT tonight. Will be a short show. Between spraining my ankle (which hurts) and letting my body recover from my second shingles vaccine (which makes my ankle hurt more), I'm a grumpy pup.

8:30pm chicago - stop by to laugh at my suffering :P

Finished SUPERHOT! Closer to the ending than I expected, which was a gift in suprise since I'm all beat up.

Phoneposting this and I almost typed SUPERHOT as SUPERHO, which would be a very different first person simulation. :shock:

Just finished my 14th show and I may do another silent (no microphone) show on my Xbox later tonight.

Got my AverMedia Mini box today and I'm trying to figure out how to stream my SNES MIni with it... somehow it's not going to my Twitch address...
