I had every intention of picking up streaming on twitch again once my family got settled into our new place but then my computer decided to break during the move, so now I’m waiting for replacement parts. This week the new processor and CPU I ordered arrive, and if that doesn’t solve my issue I’ll be getting new ram, and if THAT doesn’t solve the issue I’ll be getting a new power supply. If none of that works then I’ll be out of ideas because we already tested my video card and my drives, and none of those are having issues (swapped them out with the husbands computer and still had my jittery lag problems). Hopefully we figure out what is going on and fix it.
Once the new computer is up and running I’ll be figuring out a tentative schedule for streaming – I say tentative because I haven’t decided how I want to stream yet. My husband works odd hours, and isn’t exactly reliable to be home to watch Llama Bean while I stream, of course I could stream WITH Llama Bean like I was doing previously, but that limits my streaming options slightly depending on his mood and how clingy he decides he wants to be. I was thinking I could start streaming at nights again once Llama Bean goes to bed, but that would be 8pm central, closer to 8:30 by the time he’s actually asleep, and that might be too late for most of my audience especially during the week. It will be some trial and error while I find a comfortable spot to dive back in.
What games do I want to play? I really want to stream some Overwatch and show that it doesn’t have to be a scary evil thing to play a first person shooter even when you’re not that good at one. Plus it would be fun to stream my attempts. I’d also like to stream a few visual novels because those are some of my favourite games to play even though it would just be a lot of me reading. I feel the genre needs more exposure! I also have a huge library of steam games to go through and it would be fun to stream at least one new game a week. RimWorld was always a lot of fun, and I think some Sims 4 could be fun too though I encountered a major bug that broke a few of my games when I was playing in offline mode (grrrr). I’m hoping EA has a fix for them and that I just need to patch.
I’m excited to get back to things, and I’ll make sure to post the announcement of where and when I’m streaming here on NomadicGamersEh in the near future. If you haven’t tuned in to one of my streams before you can find me over on twitch and watch some older streams, or you can give a follow and catch the new ones when I go live (don’t forget to turn notifications on)!
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
