First, I want to point out the Twitch Schedule off to the side. No, to the right. No, a little lower. It says, “Twitch Schedule.” There ya go. Glad you found it. Anyways, I posted times that I am most likely to be streaming, as well as what I am currently streaming, and any future games that I will stream. Currently, I am playing Saints Row IV. I didn’t want to stream it. I wanted to bask in all of it’s glory. It was a good choice.
Which brings me to my second topic. It’s a lot of work to do a stream, especially if you have a second box like I do. I’m pretty happy that I figured out a way to not use the 3.5mm audio jack on the capture card. This forced me down to stereo, with no sub woofer for audio. I could use my normal 5.1 surround sound setup, but audio would be cut off in the stream if any audio went to any of the other speakers. My new idea, which just uses the HDMI port for audio, allows me to not use the 3.5mm, but it still makes me use 2.1 audio. It’s a step up for me, and I don’t really care too much about the rear satellite speakers.
Thirdly, I just wanted to let you know that I did finish the story for Saints Row IV. It was awesome. I don’t know if I’ll do a review of it. I do highly recommend the game. If I do a review, I’ll let you know why. I do want to grab all the achievements for the game. I don’t have too many left, so it shouldn’t take too long to do. I say that, even though one achievement is do 5 hours of coop… so I have at least that much time left. Probably more.
Lastly, I’ll start streaming next week. I’ve got stuff going on this weekend, so don’t expect anything from me.
