I’ll be streaming some inFAMOUS: Second Son tonight at 7PM EST. Well, 7ish. You know how these things go. You can either watch the broadcast here or head over to my Twitch channel at Twitch.tv/misterbinky to get the full streaming experience. Note: the full streaming experience means that you can drop comments in the chat window and maybe have them addressed by me but probably not as I seriously doubt I’ll be able to play and read comments at the same time.
Here’s a handy FAQ to answer all of your burning questions.
Why are you streaming this game?
Why not? Seriously, I have no idea. I’ve wanted to try streaming stuff and Second Son looks like a good place to start as it’s supposed to be a good game.
Why would I watch you play instead of just playing the game myself?
I have no answer for that.
Weren’t you going to stream AC IV at one point?
I was. I often say I’m going to do something and then I don’t. In the business we call this “being untrustworthy”.
Are you going to talk over the stream?
I plan on it, but it all depends on my mood. The PS4 doesn’t allow you to mute the game’s audio, despite what the internet might tell you, so I won’t be talking over important story bits but yeah, if I’m just running around blowing stuff up, I’ll probably be chatty.
Your audio is low! What gives?
Past test broadcasts have been less than successful on this front due to the unfortunate microphone placement of the “headset” that comes with the PS4. I bought a new headset to see if that fixes things but unfortunately, headsets quickly jump from twenty bucks to a hundred bucks and I’m not about to spend a bunch of money on a headset or shunt my 7.1 home theater sound into headphones just so you can better hear me blather on. Sorry. I think the new headset will be fine but if not, know that whatever it is I’m saying that you can’t hear is extremely witty and insightful.
How long do you plan on streaming?
About an hour. I gots to get to mah stories.
I don’t want see you streaming. I want to see Bill streaming Dark Souls II. How do I do that?
Wish real hard and then prepare to be disappointed.
