As many of you know, I'm indulging my gaming geek side and live streaming a game regularly Wednesday nights on my Twitch channel.
Those live streams are filled with fails, deaths and me swearing a whole lot. They're genuinely meant to be humorous (it's funny watching someone fail a lot... particularly when gaming!), and just a couple of hours of silliness, even when I'm playing super serious games.
Anyway, Twitch only keeps the videos up for a fortnight, so those who've missed the stream have ample time to catch up before the next one. As that is the case, I decided to collect all the deaths, fails, and times when I was flippin' awesome into highlight reels.
I was so far behind after preparing for Ottawa ComicCon in this department that I didn't think I would ever manage to catch up. I finished the previous game The Last of Us and it's DLC Left Behind three weeks ago, for example. I've only just managed to finish editing together the last of the highlights reel. But it's all done!
My project for today is to get that done just in time for the second live stream of the game happening tonight. That's the idea, anyway. That way I can do the second highlight reel tomorrow and be entirely caught up.
Once I'm all caught up there, I can relax a little and read a book that I've been meaning to finish forever.
Then, if all the stars align, I can get back to writing. That's what I'm supposed to be, after all. A writer.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to find my way through a bunch of music to find the right fit.
