A very tired me does at least a few hours of Secret World Legends for Extra Life 2017. Started up a new Illuminati character that I hope to continue Soon (TM).
Look at that, livestreamed again! 😀 I still have no idea why, for a few minutes, I thought the Shadow Bound weapons (from the Kiss of the *Revenant* pre-launch ARG) spawn a Scarecrow instead of a Revenant. Will continue to blame being tired from long week at work. >_>
No word yet on if the GM’s can give me back the Shadow Bound Blade I stupidly used to empower something else, but I didn’t expect word soon. It was both my own fault, and isn’t game breaking; very sure they’re still busy with more important requests. Still, hoping they can restore it eventually!
Also: Bonus footage of Loki saying hi, and then trying to knock my chair over.
It’s up on Youtube now, yay! Ran around Innsmouth Academy for a bit, then progressed the story just barely into Blue Mountain. There are Loki cameos.
Was slow to get this on the blog, is my livestream from when SWL was still in Head Start, prelaunch. Audio was a a little borked at times, thankfully I have it fixed now. 🙂
As some of you might have noticed, I finally got some time to livestream Secret World Legends last night!!! 😀 I’ve been *so* excited to be able to do that…but my work schedule was crazy during Head Start, plus I’m recovering from an especially nasty cold. Many thanks to everyone who hung out. 🙂 It was a lot of fun for me to get back to streaming, especially with this game, and I hope fun for you! (I’ll get the stream up on Youtube sometime today, and post that here, too.)
I’d mentioned I was going to try to livestream a little today for the official launch, but I think too much is going to get in the way. My voice is still pretty bad this morning, so it’s probably smarter to give it more of a rest. I also noticed my audio was a little off last night, I’m going to need time to play around with OBS and see what happened there. >_> I’m not really going to have time for that since I need to spend today on last minute cleaning and prep for Nash flying in tomorrow. (You folks can thank him for building this pc, allowing me to stream SWL on Ultra graphic settings. ^_^)
While he’s here, I’m unlikely to stream, though I’ll tweet if I change my mind. And I should still be there for Beyond The Veil this Thursday. 🙂 Blogging is also on pause for the moment, unless I get a little time later tonight. (And yes, will set up a new Secret World Legends category Soon(tm).)
We’ll pick this up again in about a week, most likely starting from scratch with a new character. In the meantime, Djinn has been putting together a list of folks streaming or planning to stream Secret World Legends which can be found here: https://www.reddit.com/r/SecretWorldLegends/comments/6ila1m/secret_world_legends_streamer_index/. We have an awesome community, and I’m sure many of them will be streaming as much as they can!
Finally getting the last livestream posted here. New mic is working and hugely better than I had before, but go fig I forgot to adjust the UI on my alt. Ah, well… the Twitch chat overlay was also working this time so I’ll just call it a double win. We ran The Rec Center Cannot Hold, Carter Unleashed, Tier 10 of Dawning of an Endless Night, and a few missions from the Overlook and Sam Krieg. I also highlighted a section if anyone wants to see my dog’s cameo. Thanks again to everyone who popped in, it was a fun night. 🙂
My job gets in the way of any sort of regular streaming schedule, but I do at least try to post on Twitter (@darkgryphon42) as soon as I know I can run that night.
Welcome to the true spirit of Blaugust! I didn’t get any real sleep last night, just dozed for a few hours. And had to open the store early this morning. But, even though I didn’t technically sign up for daily posts…I don’t want to lose the streak I have going. So let’s do a post while running on caffeine and exhaustion, what could possibly go wrong?
I’m going to ramble more about where I’m at with getting back into livestreaming.
I managed to stream last night despite being tired and vaguely headachy. There’s that Blaugust nudge working again (at least partly). It’s like my dog when he’s reminding me I haven’t fed him since his last meal…both persistent and insistent. 😉 Continue Reading
Calling the actual stream last night Day 3 of Blaugust, and adjusting the post time here accordingly. Possible thoughts on it after work today, if I’m coherent at all after not being able to sleep.
I’ve been on break from streaming (other than Beyond the Veil) for at least as long as I’ve been on break from the blog. A couple days ago, I finally got around to running a short test stream. I put off adding it to the blog partly because I’m slightly annoyed by it. Not the stops and starts – that was expected for a test stream. But the other things I noted while watching it later. My headset really is dying and not helping the sound quality, settings need tweaking, some UI in game should have been moved…I had weird camera placement since I forgot I slouch like mad when I’m tired. It was also laggy, and I hate that.
Thing is, all of that is part of what made it hard to get back in at all. I’m probably not as picky as some, but I spent a good chunk of hours adjusting things in my preview window before I went live. Trying to make sure everything looked right. Like blogging, if I’m going to stream I want it to be the best quality I can manage. I don’t like looking at it later and seeing something I missed.
