A Funeral Dirge for Blocks Gone By

NOTE: Direct links to SDA Forum posts don’t work all that well. When linking to one of those, I’ll also note the post I intend to link to with “User X’s post that begins ‘blah blah blah…’” So, it’s over. Minecraft is cut (Romscout’s post, beginning with “The major change made to the schedule…”) from …

Thoughts on Streaming Speedruns, and *GDQs

These are some thoughts that I had about streaming and the Games Done Quick marathons. On Streaming As A Skill I tend to lurk, and occasionally post on, the Twitch subreddit. A common question for awhile was “How do I get a bigger viewership?” or “What are some games I can play that can get …

State of the Emptyeye- March through May

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. Let’s get to it. First of all, I’ve started my new job. It’s the same title as my previous one–Systems Analyst/Programmer–but my actual work is quite different. Without getting too into specifics, my first big job is moving data in an Access database out of Access …

State of the Emptyeye- February/Early March

Let’s check in with how I’ve been doing of late, shall we? The Games I Beat In 2014 series continues to grow. It now has 17 entries, six of which are games I had never beaten before. The most recent (As of this writing) in the series, Metroid Fusion, was a fun, expected entry that …

Resolutions

2013 was not the best year, to say the least. As we start 2014, I am currently Unemployedeye, among other things. I was never one for making resolutions. But with this being a year of big transition, I figure this is as good a year as any to do so. So with that, my first …

The Twitch.TV 2000-Follower Special Poll!

As of this writing, I have 1908 followers on my Twitch.TV page. That means, much like I did for the 1000-follower threshold, it’s time to make a poll for what I should play for the 2000-follower special. Since I’m not going to Awesome Games Done Quick this year, and since I’m starting farther out than …

On Charity Video Game Marathons

On Twitter and the like, various members of the speedrunning community have given their thoughts on the seeming glut of marathons in the community. Because I am a shameless trendchaser, these are my own thoughts on it. I have joked on Twitter about my less-than-stringent methods for choosing whether or not I will participate in …

More Coldly Calculating Polls For Your Voting Pleasure

That’s right, once again you get to help me decide the fate of my streams. I’m thinking of adding a fourth day to my schedule. This would be a short, one-to-two-hour stream, brought on by my plan to eventually fill in a major hole in my gaming knowledge by playing through the Playstation 2 Grand …

This Is A Poll!

For the first time in four years, I’m actually using this plug-in! This is a poll relating to what I should stream once I get a run of Golgo-13: Top Secret Episode worthy of submission to SDA. You can pick up to two answers, though note that I won’t really be speedrunning any of these. …

I Lied.

Since Awesome Games Done Quick 2012, I’ve taken to streaming stuff on Twitch TV. Yes, I know I previously said that I was done with streaming. The post title says everything. Truthfully, most of Twitch.TV’s issues are still there, particularly the chat not loading at random points. But one of the big things that changed …
