Several months ago I discovered the live video gaming streaming service Twitch.tv through the Battlefield Podcast. Over several episodes I would hear that they were doing the podcast live over Twitch.tv so I decided to check it out. After browsing around it I thought, "well this is kind of cool!" and I wanted to try it out.
Last November I built a new gaming PC to take on Battlefield 4 and with it I picked up an Avermedia Live Gamer Portable capture device. I got it not only to try streaming but also to just record my gameplay in general. I always find that you are better able to see what a person is doing wrong or doing really good when you are watching them but, it is very difficult to tell what you are doing good or bad when you are actually playing. Kills and deaths come so quick in games like Battlefield so it’s good to be able to go back and review what happened.
So now I find myself doing some streaming from time to time and have done same game related YouTube videos as well. I’ll never spend the time on it required to become popular enough to receive donations and make a living off of it but, it’s a fun hobby to do from time to time.
