Since we streamed for about an hour yesterday and not everyone who wanted to attend got the chance, I figured I would upload the footage in 10-15 minute sized chunks on the ‘tube. Expect the rest throughout the week, or something.
Some noteworthy notes:
This was my first time streaming with a webcam! I wasn’t sure where to stick the webcam box, so I stuck it in the top-left. I forgot that that’s where the customization box is. So in this episode as well as in later ones I specifically try to show viewers some of the customization options, and nobody gets to see it, because my face is in the way. Whoops. Hopefully my gorgeous hair makes up for that!
Since I also forgot to do a sound test, I’m considerably louder than Jarenth and Val. Again I say, whoops.
Let us know if there’s any other advice you can offer, or if you’d like to see more of this. I wouldn’t mind making Rocket League streams semi-regular. I don’t think I’ll be bored of this game for some time.
Seriously, guys, Rocket League is awesome. If you have a PS4 or a decent gaming PC, check it out.
You may already know this if you follow me on Twitter, but Jarenth and I have sort of fallen in love with Rocket League ever since it was gifted to us by our friend and occasional guest-writer Thanatos. If you somehow haven’t heard about the game thus far, it’s essentially soccer but with everyone driving rocket cars and attempting to punt a giant bouncy ball.
It’s a concept that absolutely should not work — an online multiplayer physics-based game about intensely fast-paced precision — but the fact that it works as well as it does is a testament to the wonders of modern technology. It is immensely fun, even if it constantly makes you feel like an idiot for missing the ball or knocking it the completely wrong way. Major League Gaming has picked up the game as an official e-sport, and this prospect thrills me.
