As many of you may know, the Destructoid Community driven Twitch channel Streamtoid
is back up and running. Yours truly has Thursday afternoons booked for a 3 hour block I'm dubbing "It's Almost The Weekend", because Thursdays have sucked ever since WWE moved SmackDown to Fridays and I can't think of anything more original for a title.
Translation: You should all fucking watch Streamtoid tomorrow because I'm so politely asking and I want viewers, damnit. Actually, watch Streamtoid all the time because then you'll earn your way into the League of Extremely Cool People.
So what's going to happen on this Thursday 3 hour program? Um... video games, obviously. If you're expecting a theme or gimmick or something like that, sorry that's probably not gonna happen. The only gimmick will probably be "I really don't know what I'm going to do from week to week". I'm going to play games while talking on my headset and we're all going to have a merry old time. I'm still kind of new to streaming while trying to talk to my (small) audience, so I'm going to try to overcome my ability to go lengthy amounts of time before remembering to speak.
For my inaugural show I was originally planning on playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
, starting a new game, and jumping straight into Revengeance mode. However, my PlayStation 3 picked the worst
time to die, thus ruining my original plans and leaving me scrambling to think of something else to do. I was thinking about streaming The Last of Us Remastered
, but I'd rather not stream my first playthrough of the campaign in order to avoid spoilers / people telling me what to do (gotta preserve all dem emotions
), plus I figure the PS Friday Night Fights crew will be streaming that game anyways. This means there is only one logical option left.
Yep, that's right. It's Waluigi time, motherfuckers. You're getting three steady hours of Mario Kart 8
online multiplayer, or some other Wii-U game in case I decide to rage quit (Mega Man X
on stand by, forever). Mario Kart 8
is safely my favorite entry into this series, it's crazy fun to play, and it's a gorgeous game to look at. If you're interested in racing against me, drop your NNID in the comments below or something and if enough people want in maybe we can do a private lobby and avoid the need to race against the unknown masses in the online world. Racing against me will earn you the prize of being able to say you're almost as good as Waluigi.
It's Almost The Weekend
Thursdays 8:00pm Eastern / 7:00pm Central / 6:00pm Mountain / 5:00pm Pacific
