More Twitch Musings

NOTE: This post originally appeared in my Patreon account on June 3rd, 2022

Last night, I fired up V Rising (the vampire survival crafting game) along with Animaze and OBS. And proceeded to do a practice stream for a couple hours. I didn't exactly connect to Twitch, but I simply wanted to go through the motions.

My voice went out halfway through, lol.

So I'm wondering if this is a good path? If I can't yammer on while playing, then it wouldn't be much of a stream, would it?

And while I nursed my throat with more THC, I wondered if the YT path was a better one. The talking would be significantly less, but the work applied would be significantly more. Gotta do things like create graphics and source music and write scripts and omg editing and... yeah, it would take a lot of effort.

So this is my dilemma. I keep going back and forth on which one to do - Twitch vs YT. I never can seem to decide on one, and end up losing out in regards to time.

I think I'll still do a Star Citizen stream this weekend, just to test the waters. Should be fun, hopefully.
