New Stream Idea - Play Me a Story

Based on discussions at Mythmoot of games and stories, I thought it might be fun to actually play through some games and not only examine their lore, but examine how the games present and unfold their stories. I would start with the Legend of Zelda series, as not only is there a fair bit of story in the games, but the series has been going on long enough that we could even see in what ways the story has changed over time.

Would this be something Signum would be interested in hosting on Twitch; and if not, does anyone know how to set up a Twitch stream series? Either way, what equipment would I need? I have a computer, a console, and a webcam (if such a horrid device is deemed absolutely necessary); and I should be able to get a capture card easily enough. Is there anything I'm missing?

I like this idea!
To do your own straming, get a free software called OBS, wtch videos on how to set it tup to stream to your Twitch channel - that's how I got the WriterSpace times going on the SignumU channel.

Meanwhile, i'm going to pass this idea along - total credit to you! - to the folks who are thinking about expanding offerings at Mythgard1

Got a capture card for my computer this week and I'm working on getting everything set up. My plan at the moment is to stream Mondays 7PM-9PM Eastern, starting this coming Monday if everything works out well. I'll post Twitch information for anyone interested once I get everything sorted out.

Unfortunately, I forgot to have Twitch autoarchive the stream (but have adjusted the setting so that it should do so in the future). If you would like to view the video, it will be available on YouTube once it finishes uploading.

In our second installment, we brave levels 5 and 6, discuss Digdogger's least favorite music, and dislike dislike the Like Likes.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I will be unable to stream Press Play this week or next week. I plan to stream again starting Monday, April 12th.

In our third episode, we cruise through levels 7 and 8, then continue on to hunt down Ganon himself and save Hyrule! This one ran a bit long to allow us to complete the game, and next week we'll begin Zelda II: The Adventure of Link!

In the first game, Impa sent Link on a quest to recover the Triforce and save Princess Zelda, which we succeeded in doing! The second game switches things up a bit by...having Impa send Link on a quest to recover the Triforce and save Princess Zelda; though it's a different Triforce and a different Zelda, but the same Impa and the same Link. Hyrule is also the same, but now with civic improvements and citizens who can speak properly (more or less)! In this installment, we successfully tackle Palaces 1 and 2. We also tackle Palace 3, albeit somewhat less successfully.

Continuing through Zelda 2, we manage to knock out palaces 3-6, and show those bosses who's boss! Then we make our way toward Great Palace, and the monsters in the Valley of Death show us who's REALLY boss!

We successfully wake the sleeping princess in Zelda 2, and begin exploring A Link to the Past, with a much deeper storyline than either of the previous entries!
