rietplaysgames:

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!

Thank you to everyone who stuck it out through the Great Sonypocalypse of 2013, I should really create a separate blog to do that liveblogging shit so I don’t muck this tumblr up. I know it’s my personal blog, but EEEEH

I even gained a follower from it, so I suppose that’s a nice thing! Thanks to comradical for not running away as fast as you could when you found my blog. I appreciate it.

I’m gonna peace out to bed and bring my laptop with me because of this damn Path of Exile install is taking forever on Ubuntu. Catch me on Skype/Steam if you’ve got me.

OH AND I’M GETTING TO THOSE CHARACTERISTICS THINGS I PROMISE
