Monday? Hello? Are you there? No? Ok.
Haha. I know I worked on the previous Sunday recap… but, I can’t remember anything else.
Oh!! Wait. While writing the Recap at my favorite coffee shop, I got my coffee personalized! They were doing this for costumers in celebration of New Year’s. It says Judith because they do not know my secret identity! Hehehehe!
On Tuesday, I played Doom for the first time on stream. It’d been several weeks since the last time I played, so I had to relearn the controls. Hehe. I was surprised by how fun it was to play this live. I was worried that it wouldn’t be as good a game to stream as Skyrim, but no. It was great! I was also worried that I’d get lost and it would take me forever to figure out where to go… and it DID happen, but the chat guided me!
On Wednesday, I started rehearsing All of the Above, in preparation for the concert. It was a trip down memory lane! I’m excited about sharing live performances of all these new songs next week on Twitch!
At 9pm, we recorded our weekly podcast, El Rol que Jugamos. One of our listeners, Majkir, surprised us with this hilarious video of 2016 highlights. The part at the end, where Maj got several people from the community to contribute audio clips, was very moving. What an incredible community this has become. <3
I played Doom for longer than I meant to. Haha! I was supposed to stream from 12-2pm… and when I looked at the time, it was 4pm. Haha! The most ridiculous thing happened, too. I had gotten an alert that the PS4 controller had low battery. I went ahead and played. Until it died. (Thanks for the clip, Thesawolf!)
And then, just as I was scrambling trying to find the cable to charge it, I was raided by a big streamer named Tofusenshi. She sent over 70 people to my channel and I spiraled deeply into panic mode. hahaha! I was eventually able to find a cable, feeling like a huge Maloofus.
I spent some time trying to make a Patreon update video. I set up my nice camera, lights, and then I couldn’t get things to work properly. Eventually, I decided to keep it simple and just use the webcam. I think I might stick to the webcam for updates. Part of me wants the better quality image… but, the other part wants to be able to record spontaneously. And not grumpily because of technology. Haha!
Saturday shall forever be known as the day when I realized how much better it is to play Overwatch with mouse and keyboard. haha! I had only played it with a controller before.
Mouse/Keyboard for FPS’ses always makes me hesitate because the super fast movements make me dizzy. I’m glad I tried Overwatch. In this particular game, I can handle it. My favorite character to play is Mercy!
On Sunday, I saw tofusenshi was streaming on Twitch. I visited her channel so I could thank her for the raid. It was so nice to meet her! She’s a sweetheart and ended up drawing a portrait for me! It was such a cool process to watch. I sat there, completely hypnotized by how she would create a line, smudge, line, smudge, line smudge… and all of a sudden… face. hahahaha! Even more surprising was learning that she’s only started drawing with charcoal very recently! Check out these images, and be sure to check out Senshi’s channel!
Thank you so much for reading! I’ll see you guys on Twitch, Twitter, here, everywhere!
