Hey guys, my girlfriend is a streamer whose having some burnout from streaming for months with only one consistent viewer and getting frustrated at all the effort with nothing to show for it. If any of you would care to watch her play some and interact in the chat with her it would brighten her day more than you can imagine. She's not streaming right now, but when she does its https://www.twitch.tv/nihilana

 

Also if you like her videos but she streams at times that aren't good for you to interact and watch, let me know and I can relay that to her. I'm her unofficial community manager, granted its a community of 1 at the moment.

 

EDIT: It looks like, in her frustration last night she marked all her videos private. I'll see what I can do about that =/

Does she upload to YouTube at all? I don't watch twitch, but she should record her stuff and post it (or just highlights) to yt, if anything to archive them in a different way. Might give her a larger audience to with links to get twitch channel.

I sometimes watch youtube gamers play, SeaNanners is one I check out from time to time, he's good, has fun, and his regular partners in crime are interesting, especially the one that can do impressions (having Morgan Freeman narrate how he was coming to kill them was awesome). Rabbit's Respawn is another one, he's got insane Stealth Run videos for a bunch of games, Dishonored, Metal Gear, Far Cry, Uncharted, any game with stealth options really.

 

I'd be interested to see what your friend has on Youtube. How do we find her?

Her name on Twitch and youtube is Nihilana but as I said her videos are currently marked private due to a existential blegh that happened last night for her. Happens almost every time she plays Overwatch or pays attention to her viewer count while streaming. Honestly she just needs like 5 or 6 regular people active and participating in chat on her streams and she'd be happy. As it is she has friends who all say they'll pass her stream along but don't watch them themselves, or say they'll watch but never do. And when she's autistic and unable to work due to its severity.... this is kind of all she has

Youtube-d a few of her videos... I have some constructive criticism... She could to do more AAA action games or just more familiar games in general; I've never even heard of most of what she was playing. That's not in and of itself a bad thing but if it's an indie or obscure game she needs to do a better job of selling what she's playing; she could explain some of the games background, maybe run it as if it was a tutorial, silence is not a Youtuber's friend. Staying away from RPGs would also be advisable unless she wanted to MST3K the dialogue. Video editing would also help, she'd be able to concentrate on showing her highlights instead of having us spending the first 20 minutes watching her adjust her character's appearance on a 2 hour Mass Effect 1 video. Hope I wasn't too critical.

You're good, In fairness a lot of those really long videos (hour or more) are just recordings of livestreams. She hasn't done full edited videos in awhile. Her further back videos for Oxygen Not Included, Slime Rancher and Blacksmith Simulator are produced/edited and not just livestream saves

So.... Neogaf is crashing and burning. 

 

 

 

I've never been on Neogaf but see how much NZA and some friends enjoy it so I'm torn. I'm always happy when sexual predators/abusers are called out. I don't feel badly about them losing their livelihood over shit like this. This tool seems highly unapologetic so fuck him. But it sucks seeing Gaf go down with him when it means a lot to people.

I never really followed them either, but they were mostly good for inside news on video games. From what I understand otherwise though, the place was a cesspool. Every comment I've seen from people on this doesn't mourn the loss of the site at all. I may just be missing some of the more loyal site goers thoughts. Am curious on what NZA's gotta say on it.

GAF is/was notoriously picky about registration  (you had to have a paid email & approval still took ages), plus they tolerated no racism, homophobia, misogyny etc...they're about the only gaming community I know that flushed their gamergators, which made me love them despite their shitty & generally absentee owner 

 

this tricky sign up and easy banning fostered generally better dialogue & an actually inclusive gaming forum, but mix these with said shit owner & recent stuff like former mods arrested with child porn and you start to get the hate. all the worst people are pleased today & Tyler may have shat the bed on a $10 million offer for his site with this.

 

It's crazy disappointing - much of their remaining staff was excellent, and today all but one left. reddit, gamefaqs etc are actual cesspools, so here's to Jim sterling and whatever corners are left I'm the mostly embarrassing fan circles of this hibby.

honesty, dude may step down & sidestep some of this, but today it's looking like much of the damage is done

 

assuming he does, I may continue (I've helped build some good communities there - retro stuff, yakuza, nujabes etc) but I'm already kinda migrating to Slaent at the moment, and keep hearing about Discord

Well shit, The Escapist is dying too apparently. Well close to it it seems.

It's been dying for a while; they dumped Moviebob, then all their webcomics, now all they got for an anchor is Zero Punctuation. Pity, I rather enjoyed it back in the day.
