There was a time where you had to wait to see a review of a game before you even knew it existed. Not no more. For years, I watched Board Game Geek stream from the big events in the States, just so I could see the latest games. Even at the Essen Spiel, until I was actually there.
Twitch is another channel all to itself. And I thought about dabbling in doing live videos of game play, rules explanations and blogs. While keeping my Youtube channel full of fully produced content.
Obviously, it's early days yet.
I have starter tinkering with the components and idea of doing this, to try and broaden my viewing audience. Also the chance to pump out a little more, ad-lib content that will keep me up to date. As you know, I spend a great amount of time playing a game before I start a camera rolling. Giving you a rounded view of a game that has been played many times and not just a first impression, as many other reviewers do. Maybe I'll keep twitch as a "First Impression" channel for games that I have just that second played!
One thing that is evident is, if I live stream a play-through of a game with friends, if will probably be in French. All of my gaming buddy speak a little English and a lot of slang, so maybe it will be a little more adult.
I will give a try and see how it lands.
What do you think about a Twitch channel?
