I get so stressed out watching PBG’s MineZ series, I’m waiting for him to run into a cactus and just abruptly die after surviving for so long

Vinesauce Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Charity Stream!

The stream is still going on, and they’ve gone above and beyond what they expected! In addition to an additional 12 hours of streaming (TBA), numerous other donation incentives have been unlocked and detailed here!

If you wish to donate, please go to the PCRF donation page here! They’ve already gotten up to $13k, but according to Vinny, if enough is donated, that money turns into a research grant that will go directly towards beating cancer.

Vinny is just starting his stream now, doing some corruptions and gameshark fun, so come on in and enjoy the horrible nightmare fuel.

RietHUD is now released, along with its own website!

Originally a personal project based on the yahud variant “FLVHUD”, it gained a bit of popularity and I decided to go ahead and release what I’ve done so far.

Everything on the site should be explained pretty well, go and check it out!

E3 is approaching, and watching the press conferences is one of my favorite things to do every year. Seeing the major forces in the industry either debut new games/hardware, show more features of announced games, or make fools of themselves by announcing terrible things that nobody wants, it’s always an interesting event.

But the one thing that can always make press conferences better is a good helping of commentary. ABadFeeling used to have big Mumble meetings during E3 and it was hilarious to listen to. Unfortunately they haven’t for a couple years now, so I’ve generally just sat and yelled at my screen alone.

This is where I had an idea, why not stream while I scream at my screen? (Tongue twister unintended.) And then I realized it’d be far better with a friend! So, I will be holding applications for co-commentators for each press conference. If you would like to apply, please send me an ask or note with the following information:

• Preferred name for display on-stream
• Twitter account - not required but recommended
• Times available today
• Preferred conferences (Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, or Nintendo)

When I review the information, I’ll let the applicants know whether they’ve been accepted or not, then an hour or so before the conferences start (Microsoft’s starts at 9:30 PDT/12:30 EDT, pre-show at 9 PDT/12 EDT), I will announce the list of co-commentators and begin to set up the stream.

I apologize for the long-winded post, but I’m rather excited to get this going - and honestly should’ve got this organized sooner - but hopefully the first RietPlaysGames E3 Conference Commentary Stream will be a fun time, and I hope to see you all there!

Still looking for victims co-commentators!
