Twitch Streamer Series- Part 43

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 43

I really hope that you have found new games to enjoy through these blogs. I have been seeing a few that I have never heard of myself because I am not much of a gamer but a watcher. It is always fascinating to do some research and see what games the streamers are playing or have recommended throughout this series.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                        TheStytch
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                      Stytch has been a nickname of mine since I was 16. That started back in the day when DDR was still cool and many people had nicknames. Many people grow out of nicknames but mine just stuck and I’m ok with that. I work in an office and everyone there has no problem calling me Stytch.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                  I became a streamer because I played video games all the time anyway, why not do it and make some friends? I played a ton of MMOs because I would get bored playing with no one to talk to. When I’m streaming there’s always SOMEONE to talk to.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                            I began streaming on Twitch because, in all honesty, it was the only streaming site I’d ever heard of. I know others exist now, but I really like the Twitch community overall.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                       I’ve been streaming since 2014.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                                Streaming full-time would be amazing but unfortunately I’m not that popular…. yet. As for my job, all I am allowed to say is that I do customer service for a company called 24-7 Intouch.
  7.  What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                      I really like 16 bit style games. I love the old JRPGs like Chrono Trigger, Mario RPG, the early Final Fantasys, Shining Force, Secret of Mana. I enjoy farming sim games like the 2nd Harvest Moons, Stardew Valley, Rune Factory. I’m not really into FPS games but Battlefield is always fun to me, Titanfall and Overwatch.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                                   I have to say WoW is one of my favorites when I am raiding. Definitely not the best in terms of getting viewers since there are a ton of people playing it, but I love the team work that goes into a new fight. I actually enjoy wiping over and over on a boss, because when you get it down and everyone comes together for that perfect pull… damn that’s satisfying.                                      But overall I’m an accidental Blizzard fanboy. I like pretty much all of their games except Hearth Stone and Starcraft. Not that I dislike them, I’m just not super into them.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                       First off, a super not so well-known driving game that is amazing and has some great music. This game was suggested to me by my friend Skullstream (a very cool streamer that everyone should check out) It’s called Distance. I can’t even describe it. Just check it out. It starts off stub easy and get more and more crazy with each track. One of the most fun games I’ve streamed in a long time and it has a track editor with a pretty big community. MOBAs: Heroes of the storm because it’s easy to pick up, really fun to play with friends and it’s free to play. Rogue Like Games: Dead Cell and Rogue Legacy because they are less punishing then some and some of the few games I can die in and do stuff over and over and not get pissed lol. Micromanagement Survival Sims: Banished for more of a realistic experience, much more punishing when it comes to nature’s wrath and nice graphics. Kingdoms and Castles for a more cartoony feel. It’s just a relaxed survival game but you will get attacked by the occasional Viking and Lego/MegaBlock looking dragon. I could go on and on about games. Come in and ask me about my favorite picks for a specific genre haha.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                                I’ve actually always worked in customer service, so talking to people has never really been a problem for me. I am the type of person to have a conversation with anyone sitting next to me on an airplane (if they want to talk). Whether you’re 16 or 60, some people have some awesome stuff to saw. I have to say that most of the people who do come into my streams are usually there to have a good time and share some of their knowledge, which is awesome.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                                I’m a guy that likes a lot of different things such as collecting old video game consoles. I believe I’m up to 51 I think now, not including duplicates. I love retro stuff from the 80s/90s of all kinds, games, cartoons, toys and more. I’ve been to Japan twice, Tokyo to be exact. I’ve climbed to the top of Mount Fuji. I know very little Japanese but have studied off and on for years but still 日本語がとてもすこしわかりません。 I love the 90s tuner car scene but I don’t know a ton about cars in general, just like the style. I don’t wanna give too much away though. Come in and ask me about stuff, it’ll give me something to ramble about lol.                                                                                                                                   As for the stream. I stream what ever I feel like playing at the time so you will probably see a lot of different things streamed through out the year. I love when people coming in and telling me about a fun game they’ve played. I have definitely gotten a few games because people suggested to me and they sounded amazing. So come in and ask me some stuff and tell me about all the things. I’ll appreciate the company.

 

Stytch is a great guy and I have lurked a bit in his streams but I will become more active. He is a great guy to chat with. So want to join us? Then head on over to  twitch.tv/thestytchand join the fun of games.

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 42

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 42

I can’t express enough how much this blog has been a lot of fun for me. This series has definitely introduced me to a lot of great people, and I don’t just mean the streamers themselves. The people in chat have been great too, and quite a few of those in chat have become streamers or have decided to become a streamer.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                      BigseanLIVE
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                      I was previously “G4L_Bigsean” I didn’t really like the name anymore and with recent changes to Twitch I was able to change my name. Also people would mispronounce my name calling me “GAL Bigseen” so I thought maybe it’s time for a change. LUL
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                               I’ve always wanted to stream but it wasn’t possible back when I was a kid due to technology and when it was possible I never had the equipment. When I finally got what I needed it was a no-brainer.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                            Twitch was really the only thing around when I started and it’s the best regarding Live-streaming.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                      January 2015
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                               I stream Full-time
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                   I’ll play just about anything but some of my favorites are: Rocket League, GTA V, Red Dead Redemption and Geometry Wars 2 & 3 (I know I know it’s random :D )
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                                I mainly stream just Rocket League but will be transitioning more into variety.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                 I would recommend Grand Theft Auto V, BioShock Collection, and the Mass Effect Trilogy – Great Storytelling Great Gameplay. You will not be disappointed.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                                Talking with my viewers was never the difficult part, it was talking when nobody was there. I think that is the biggest hurdle for any new streamer is learning how to communicate when nobody else is watching.  Probably about a month. Learning how everything works can be VERY overwhelming but once I learned how everything worked it was easy after that.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                            I enjoy chatting with my viewers and if there are any other questions you may have, then come on into my channel and ask. I am more than happy to answer your questions. And I hope that you have a great time while watching me stream.

 

His channel is  twitch.tv/bigseanlive   and I say go check him out when he streams. I think you should totally check out his streams.

Making new friends and chatting with people from all over the world is amazing. I can’t express that part enough and Twitch is the hugest community of those from around the world that it is crazy. Have any questions for any of the streamers that I haven’t asked? Then go to their channel and ask them in their chat while they are streaming. It’s great getting to know them I promise.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                    Mama_Rage
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                    I started out with TheRAGE! on Counter-Strike: Source. After having a group of friends I played with on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, I was the only female, so they all started to call me Mama and the name stuck.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                 My parents started me out on SEGA Genesis when I was 2 years old, I played in arcades and had a few different consoles. I didn’t have internet for about 9 years and then my senior year of high school my boyfriend at the time introduced me to computer gaming, then twitch, and I took off from there. I wanted to be apart of the community and to game and meet other gamers.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                             It was just home and I love Twitch so I only wanted to stream on this platform.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                      I’ve been streaming since last year (March 10th, 2016) ^.^
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                             I am not currently properly employed. I take art commissions ranging from emotes to channel artwork so that is my full-time job but it also helps that I can stream it under the Creative category of Twitch.
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                  I’m a variety caster so I play games ranging from open world survivals to shooters and story games. Some of my favorite games to stream right now is ARK, CS:GO, Minecraft, Dead by Daylight, GTA V, PUBG, Stardew Valley, and a lot of different story games.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                              I only stream games I like to play, so refer to previous list 🙂
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                              I don’t usually make any recommendations for games to anyone unless I can ask them what kind of game they are looking to play or try.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                             It wasn’t hard for me to talk to my viewers when I first started streaming because I was a moderator for a year and a half before I started streaming so I had a lot of supportive wonderful friends to make the transition fun and easy. But it did take me a while to get over pre-stream jitters. Once I hit ‘start stream’ it’s easy for me to relax and chat with everyone. It’s just a matter of hitting that button.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                         The only thing that I can say about myself is that I love to chat and joke around in good time with every new person in my group of friends, we’re always welcoming new people and trying to expand our communities. I support small streamers and like to promote and shout out a new streamer every week. There’s not much for me to really say about myself, all I can really say is that if you want to actually know me, come into chat, hang out, ask questions, be personal and real. ^.^

 

I have only lurked a couple of times in her stream, but she is an amazing streamer too and deserves a follow and definitely chat with her. Her channel is  twitch.tv/mama_rage   and she will be waiting for you.

Twitch Stream Series- Part 40

Being confident helps but it isn’t everything when you stream because you can gain confidence with each time that you stream. You turning on your stream to do your very first stream is a HUGE step and it’s a great feeling once you are done. Don’t ever give up like these newer streamers haven’t. They keep being themselves and turning on those games and streams. Be yourself and you’ll gain all the confidence you need.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                    My twitch name is azgaming16
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                   I chose that name because originally being azgaming but didn’t work and 16 is my favorite number because of my birthday and az in az gaming is apart of my actual name.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                             I became a twitch streamer because I had a dream about doing YouTube but sadly I don’t have the stuff ready so I used everything I got and started twitch with some help from my friends.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                            I chose twitch because twitch is a lot easier and very popular for streamers and anyone can do it.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                    I started around may I think maybe a bit before.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                                I only stream at the moment but not as much it’s not a job or anything its more like just for fun I don’t have another job now but in a few months I’m planning on it.
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                     I have so many games that I love as a gamer starting off I love fps’s (first person shooter) so these include games like call of duty, battlefield, borderlands those are usually what I play and I love fighting games like the anime stuff such as naruto and dragon ball z and lastly open world and sandbox games these include grand theft auto, saints row, and even minecraft.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                                 My favorite games to stream are brawlhalla and maple story which are the 2 games stream for now until I get a better laptop that can actually stream games on.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                 To recommend games it’s usually by their preference so if you love games like call of duty for example, you might like battlefield but what makes it different is the playing style since call of duty is an arcade shooter anyone can pick up and play and battlefield is a war themed shooter where it’s more strategy based.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                              It’s not hard at all. In my case it’s just hard to get viewers but it’s easy to chat with them. I definitely play with some of my viewers and interact with them.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                             My channel is small but will keep on growing with the support. At the moment, I’ll be only playing brawlhalla and maple story until I get better equipment to play and stream other titles so stay tuned.

 

Like the smaller streamers so that you can get used to Twitch and still have a great time, then head over to his stream and enjoy. His channel is  twitch.tv/azgaming16 and he will be waiting for you to join them.

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 39

Streamers are so supportive of their viewers and each other. They like to play games with one another and don’t mind being a part of another person’s stream which makes it even a better stream. And sometimes, thanks to Twitch, they can do a split stream and you can watch and chat with both streamers.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                     RidleyBadassGaming
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                   Yes, there is a reason I chose this name. It is a lengthy answer ill save you the trouble. Tl;DR = Got the name Ridley from a game called suikoden 2, Badass came from Borderlands, because why not badass in a name?
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                 I streamed in the beginning because I wanted to meet new friends and the prospect of more friends for gaming that I could connect with was very appealing. My friends still grow today. Also I wanted to share my amazing gaming moments that I only seem to accomplish.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                           Twitch was the biggest and best stable streaming option that I first learned of, so I stuck with it.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                      I was a streamer for a little over 6 months.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                              Referring back to Q5, work took over and I was too tired at the end of the day to expend more mental energy talking and trying to be entertaining. I am a landscaper, at the time I was working construction.
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                   I like RPG games and FPS games, action platformers, metroidvanias, and Racing.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                              I really liked to stream FPS games, because they are more action oriented and a much higher pace then RPG’s. Racing games are monotonous for most people and un interesting from my time on twitch.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                            My suggestion about games is to do the research their selves about the game they are interested in, and make sure they are completely informed about what they looking to purchase.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                           It wasn’t hard to talk to my viewers because I spent a year talking to people making friends on twitch before I really jumped into the streaming aspect. I was also hindered by my lack of computer power for that year, then when I did stream, I had many recognizable names I could talk with. I was at ease with streaming after the first month, sure I was irritated by the random trolls but, if you don’t thicken your skin you just wont make it. I just shrug off the negative comments and take them as constructive criticism.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                          Nope. Follow me if you want, maybe I’ll stream again, and provide a few cool moments when I can. Thanks.

 

He’s a really fun guy to watch and he cracks me up with his jokes. His channel is  twitch.tv/ridleybadassgaming  and I know he would love to chat with you.

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 38

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 38

Wow! I still can’t believe that this series is still going and it’s so full of life, meeting new people, and that so many great streamers have answered my call to do this with me. I am so blessed to know so many great men and women who are streaming on twitch, and meeting new ones is even better.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                      Name’s ThePalvikinkku. Trivia: name means “Smoked Ham” in Finnish
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                     As I remember it, it came from the old Microsoft Messenger days. My sis changed my name to “Palvikinkku” randomly back in a day. I liked it so much that it stuck. Since then, been Palvikinkku.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                  To have something to do while being unemployed. Essentially, something to keep me busy or something to aim at.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                            It’s the most popular one. Never did really any research on what else to pick or choose, so it was an automatic choice.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                     2nd month streaming now. When I do become employed, I aim to keep streaming nevertheless.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                             Currently, I am  unemployed. Been correcting it lately, albeit slowly. Will tell when it changes! (So, I currently only stream)
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                   Genres? Probably single player RPGs. Favourite game of all time? Fallout New Vegas. Otherwise I am really omnivorous since I play almost anything. Dota 2, Fallout, XCOM, Rayman Origins… you name it.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                             Currently Overwatch, but season 5 combined with meta has burned me a bit, so I think I’ll branch out a bit for now. See where I’ll go and what’ll be my destination. The most difficult question is though, what will be my next competitive game if it’s now Overwatch?
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                           Jesus, what could I recommend? Fallout series, especially older ones and New Vegas? As Obsidian fanboy, Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny? There’s simply too many. But I narrow on one classic and one pleasant surprise. A classic: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (game what introduced me to ‘roguelike’ genre). A pleasant surprise: Renowed Explorers: International Society (a good mix of roguelike, turn based strategy and choose-your-own-adventure; more humorous than serious, this one!).
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                           I’d like to say it’s always been easy to talk, but the content what you’re spouting from your mouth is harder. It gets better I guess, but I am still so green that I can’t say for sure yet how long will it be ’till I find my real tune (half-truth-half-lie; I kinda have an idea what kind of person I present, but I could hone it a bit further). Essentially: you should always strive for an improvement.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                       As this is written, my channel is still half-baked, but welcome along to a ride with Ham. I’ll treat you with sexy voice, perfect storytelling and enjoyable show, with a hint of salt put into it!

 

He may still be new to the whole streaming thing, but he does it pretty well and I enjoy going into his stream and chatting with him. So I say go over and give this guy a follow and chat with him as he streams. His channel is  twitch.tv/thepalvikinkku.

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 37

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 37

This next streamer that I am happy to introduce you too is quite the character, very up beat and funny. And it’s not only him who streams on his channel because if he does a long stream say 24 hour stream, which he has done in the past and I was able to catch some of, he has friends and his twin brother help him out. It’s awesome! So if you want to stream for longer times to say raise money for a charity or just to do a longer stream for yourself and your viewers then take it from this guy and get help! And always have fun while you stream.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                      BringTheParty
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                    When I originally started streaming, I used the user name “xbigbluebugx2.” After taking a few business courses I came to the conclusion that it was HORRIBLE branding! 😛 I tried to figure out what made my stream different from others and I thought it was always a party in my stream. After rifling through a few names BringTheParty stuck.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                I started streaming when I was 16 because I loved to game and talk. While doing this, I made friends and developed relationships that will forever be apart of my life.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                            I originally started on a site called . This site was shut down and all the streamers went over to twitch and I was one of them. 🙂
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                     I have been streaming for a little over a year and a half.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                            Since I started streaming this has been my only income and job, but I have been a full-time student with little debt or expenses. This is because I live at home … happily! 😀
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                   I love to play role-playing games and also anything competitive always catches my interest. The fact I no longer play sports I look for another outlet for this competitive drive I have and I find it in gaming.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                             My favorite games to stream are completely different from my favorite games. I like to play games my community enjoys which is mostly Sims.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                             The Sim series is my favorite series of games, because they have such an in-depth community and are very open-ended. This leads to unique challenges and play styles of the games!
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                            The easy part for me was talking to my viewers. The hard part was talking to myself when no one was there. Talking has always came easy to me, but the silence and lack of conversation still frightens me! I was luck enough that I only had to talk to myself for a few weeks before I had a steady dedicated few who kept me going. 🙂
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                          First off thank you everyone who read this interview! I hope you learned a little bit about me and. Also, thank you to Lacey for having me participate in this post! 🙂 I hope my writing wasn’t too bad. My channel is a little bit of a safety on the internet where you can find friends and be open with each other. If you’re looking for a few dear friends I hope I get to meet and talk to you at . Thank you again 🙂

 

I would recommend this guy if you want a few good laughs and watch his facial expressions because of his followers in chat. He definitely has a bright smile his face on that shows that he is having a great time even if he isn’t feeling very well. So definitely go check him out at the link he provided to his channel. You won’t be disappointed.
