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).)
Holy crow…pun possibly intended…the Head Start launch of Secret World Legends is nearly upon us! \o/ I really can’t think of a better reason to shake the dust off LFGryph and get a post up.
I WANTED to record a video but life got in the way. 😦 In lieu of a video, I’m going to livestream a bit as soon as possible. Head Start was recently announced planned for 4:00pm EDT today…BUT I work at 3:00pm EDT and a close/open to boot. So stay tuned, I’ll stream as soon as it’s feasible! If anyone doesn’t know, there’s also a dev stream planned, currently for 2:30pm EDT, though I’m guessing that’ll change with the new Head Start time. (ALL times subject to change, this is after all a launch day!) I’d watch the official Twitter account, rather than assuming my post is up to date!
I’ll try to do at least a few more posts on the relaunch, SOON(tm). I’m going to mention a lot of things today, but I’m sure won’t be able to go into as much depth as I’d like. I’ve been such derp between sick, work, and spending time gearing up for our last TSW Beyond the Veil podcast last night (which you should listen to!).
Hey folks – real blog post incoming someday soon, but right now I just want to list a few TSW cosmetic items I’d like to see go to good homes before the SWL launch. I’d say to not message me ingame or comment on here – I might not see it. Best way to contact me is on Twitter @darkgryphon42 or over on my blog’s FB page. (Twitter is prob best.)
I’ll keep up as best I can, but I’m only one person. 🙂 First to ask gets the things, please don’t ask if you don’t actually need it, and I reserve the right to limit how many items any one player gets. Remember to message me your ingame name so I can actually mail it to ya! I’ll try to let you know if what you want has already been claimed but…uhhh…again, only one person here and I happen to be nursing a terrible cold. >_> If I don’t answer, I’m sorry!
These are all things I’d planned on giving away for Extra Life or during other events, but I certainly don’t want anyone to miss out during the transfer if I can help out. Will totally plug my Extra Life donation page though, if anyone feels like donating. (Is NOT a requirement for grabbing up my stuffs, at all. Want that very clear!)
(Some of these, I have a couple. I’m pretty sure I’m not listing anything character bound, but if I am, and you notice, let me know!)
Listed in order of autosort bc…again, nasty cold and I’m half dead as I type this up.

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.

I missed watching live since I was at work, but Secret World players got another dev stream today – the Twitch recording can be found here, and I’m guessing it’ll go up on Youtube eventually as well.
Normally I’d save my commentary for Beyond the Veil, but we’re on summer break until the 18th. This will not be full coverage of everything discussed on the stream, just a few parts that jumped out at me.
Before the news bits, I was glad to see them play through The Black House mission. I love both playing and watching people play that one. It’s one of my favorite missions in the game, both for atmosphere and for the story of Carrie Killian. I’d run it on stream more often if not for the very act of streaming serving to kill off some of the mood. (I also possibly forgot about what happens when you try to enter the house in anima – or “dead” – form. I do so love some of those anima form surprises in TSW.) Continue Reading
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.
Starting the year off right with a long-promised livestream of Funcom’s The Park. Apologies for the quiet start, tired Gryph worked today and didn’t think to boost her mic to make up for it.
I absolutely love this game, as I may have mentioned more than once. The expected bits of horror work, but even more than that, the later dive into non-supernatural horror hits me very hard on a personal level every time.
