Ranneko Plays Channel Update – 2017-03-09

 

When I plan out my weekly schedule, I envisage it as a Monday to Sunday timetable. However, astute readers may have noticed that these posts are at least theoretically dated for Fridays. I do this because I don’t want to have both of Ninja-Blues regular posts take place on the same day. I assume that Monday/Friday is better than Monday/Monday, though I haven’t ever tried to back this assumption up with quantitative research.

This is why you often see smaller series split over two weeks. If something takes the Thursday/Saturday slot in my schedule, like Into the Breach, then while it fills only one week in my schedule it pops up twice in these posts.

I think of this week as a return to the pre-barcelona schedule, because from Monday we went back to the old schedule. Of course from the perspective of these posts the full return will not take place until next week.

The last week’s releases were:

Saturday: I Ran Into the Breach
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Run
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips
Thursday: Pillars of Ranternity

Ranneko Plays in Barcelona – Channel Update 2018-02-02

More changes in series due to the business trip are creeping in. Next week will be a fairly radical departure from the normal schedule and I am not entirely sure how long this will last, because I don’t anticipate being able to record and edit as soon as I get home. A lot of it depends on just how much recording I can get done from my hotel room using my elgato capture device.

I had hoped to do a little streaming while I was here in Barcelona, but unfortunately the hotel wifi is awful. It randomly drops out frequently and even when it works it has a tendency to drop to incredibly slow speeds. The perils of travel as wifi is primarily a checkbox when it really needs a full scale.

The last week’s releases were:

Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Enter the Gungeon
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Runs
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Take a Royal Tumble

Pity it was still too cold to swim

Ranneko Plays in Barcelona – Channel Update 2018-01-26

I am working from Barcelona at the moment, leaving me with an odd mix of free time but low equipment. I have spent the evenings slowly editing the most of the footage I recorded before I flew out, and conveniently, my friend Syfro finished up editing the games we recorded back in Sydney. Between these two things I almost have enough to cover the gap, but it will mean some surprise changes of games.

The last week’s releases were:

Saturday: Pillars of Ranternity
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Runs
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Enter the Gungeon

Ranneko Plays Changes – Channel Update 2018-01-19

 

This week, YouTube announced changes to its partner program. In particular, they have decided to signficiantly raise the bar required for video monetisation. In order to qualify for their program you now need at least 1,000 subs, and 4,000 watch hours in the past 12 months. My channel is nowhere near these numbers. At the time of writing, I have 174 subscribers and about 1,500 watch hours.

When I received my first adsense payment last year, it felt like a huge milestone, but with these changes the next similar milestone seems to have been pushed back incredibly far.

This also came at a particularly bad time for me, I am going on a work trip for the next 3 weeks, and this news just killed my motivation to try to build the buffer enough to cover the trip. I will edit and post what I have, but the channel will probably either take a break during some of the next 3 weeks or at the least change games to ones I can record while I am away.

Long term, the channel itself hasn’t been what I would describe as “healthy” for quite some time now. I will go into greater detail when I finish my analytics post, but basically when it comes to my let’s plays. The numbers pretty much say no one cares, and daily uploads aren’t helping.

Currently my plans are to split my attention between my Twitch and my YouTube

On Twitch:

  • Steam regularly, starting at one night a week
  • Slowly upload the best of my old Let’s Play series

On YouTube:

  • Continue Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips, probably continuing to focus on Heat Signature until I finish working that out of my system
  • Post VODs of the twitch streams
  • Post stream highlights

These plans are of course subject to change, but I would love to hear feedback from anyone on this approach, and any worries or advice they may have.

The last week’s releases were:

Saturday and Thursday: Pillars of Ranternity
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Runs
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips

Ranneko Plays Shadowrun Hong Kong – Channel Update 2017-01-12

I’ve been meaning to replay Shadowrun Hong Kong ever since the post-campaign DLC came out. The only reason I didn’t jump in as soon as it released was the knowledge that the first time I played the game I didn’t get the very best ending. This time I will take the time and effort to get all the information I need. This means that it will probably take about 80 or so episodes to finish it. Buckle up I guess, we are in for the long haul.

The DLC also added a new feature to the base campaign, audio commentary. Given I already know the story, I was wondering. Should I turn on the audio commentary? Would you as a viewer appreciate hearing the insights from the developers, at the risk of getting spoilers on later plot details?

At this point they are off, but I would love to hear your thoughts.

Saturday and Thursday: Pillars of Ranternity

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
