Nancy Drew Livestream

After a lot of work, I figured out how to do a livestream.  I can now play a Nancy Drew game live, while people watch.  There's even a chatroom, so everyone can comment on what I'm doing and saying, and I can read their comments.

I did the test run of the system yesterday, by playing Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill Remastered.  Now that I have complete video footage of the game, maybe I can do a video review of it.  We'll see.

The next step is for me to schedule an official date and time, to record games for my 2013 Scary Nancy Drew Games Marathon.  Which dates and times work best for you readers?  Let me know, and I'll use your feedback to schedule recording times.

Im really excited about this! I love livestreams because it really connects the readers and you together, kinda like we are all playing at once. Although I've never been part of a LIVE livestream (ha!) I have really enjoyed watching past episodes of gamers live streaming while people can live comment. One thing that was really really helpful was being able to read the viewers' comments while watching the game itself... meaning the live comment bar was in the same shot as game you are recording.. does this make sense? that way, if you comment on what a viewer is saying, we know what you are talking about.
love all your videos!!

In case you weren't planning on doing so already, be sure to plug this on GameCola once you have a date and time, and on Twitter and Facebook about 15-30 minutes in advance of when you'll be starting.

Keep in mind that your best bet at capturing an international audience during the week is between 4-7 PM MDT; that covers the kids getting out of school in California, the night owls in western Europe, and the early risers in Australia.

What's your Twitch name, so we can find and Favorite you in advance?

Everyone is saying the weekend, and since people can be busy during the day, how about Sunday or Saturday at 5:00pm or 6:00pm

No matter when you'll do it I won't be there to see, because I live in Europe + I'm not going to have internet this weekend, because I'm going to visit my grandparents. :( But I'll watch it afterwards :) if I can. I guess I can...
