Creating a Rogue’s Gallery in Rogue Legacy

I’m happy to say that my foray into videogame streaming on Twitch.tv has been quite successful.

I’ve met a wonderful group of people who enjoy gaming, joking around, and being generally awesome. I’ve certainly not abandoned my writing; it’s simply running concurrent to the game streaming. 🙂

Tonight, I plan on playing a game called Rogue Legacy, an action-platform game where every time you die, one of your heirs tries to avenge you. It’s brutally difficult, requiring expert timing, a keen eye, and super human eye-hand coordination.

Yup, this is how the game looks. Crazy!

Yup, this is how the game looks. Crazy!

As always, I will be streaming my playthrough tonight at 10:00PM EST on my MikeReverb1 Twitch Channel and would love to see my friends there!

You don’t have to jump through hoops or do any extra work to win these games: simply show up at 10:00PM EST, follow my stream, and type in the magic word before I roll the dice (I’ll be rolling the dice on-screen so it’s all fair).

Videogame Giveaway Tonight on Twitch!

 

Most of you know me as a writer. Poetry, flash fiction, the novel that I’m (STILL) working on.

But there’s another large part of my life that I haven’t really shared much on WordPress: videogames.

I’m a hardcore gamer through and through; when I’m not working or writing, I usually have a controller or keyboard glued to my hands. Final Fantasy, The Last of US, Bioshock Infinite, DayZ: you name it, I’ve probably played it.

I’ve begun streaming on Twitch.tv–http://twitch.tv/mikereverb1–which is a website where people join a chatroom and talk to you as you play videogames. We talk about philosophy, new games that are coming out, plans for the holiday: anything really. It’s a wonderfully interactive community, and I’ve enjoyed it immensely for the past 3 weeks or so.

Now I want to give back to my lovely viewers who have supported me so much; therefore, I’m holding a videogame giveaway tonight at 10:00 PM EST!

The games I will be giving out are as follows:

1.DayZ
2.Hotline Miami
3.Starbound
4.Half-Life 2 + Episode 1
5.Portal
6.Braid
7.Papers Please

It‘s a combination of games past, present, and future–sort of like the ghosts that visit Scrooge. You don’t have to jump through any hoops to be eligible–simply show up–http://twitch.tv/mikereverb1–at 10:00PM EST,  follow my stream, chat with us, laugh a little, and say the magic word before I roll the dice (I will do so on the screen so it’s all fair).

And tell your friends and family to watch too–if enough people join the stream, I may add some more games. 😉

Even if you don’t want to watch the stream because you despise free stuff (:-P), I wish everyone a safe, warm, full holiday surrounded by loved ones.
