Twitch Streamer Series- Part 55

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 55

As I have said before, I enjoy meeting new streamers and slowly getting to know them and their channels. This next streamer I have just met recently and he is a really good gamer and a really cool guy from what I have learned so far.

 

1. What is your twitch name?

                   TheSilent_Reaper

2. Is there a reason why you chose that name?

                  I have played many, many first person shooters in my life. And I gave myself this name because I took a liking to the sniper rifles. No feeling is better than destroying an enemy who cannot see or hear you until it is too late.

3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?

                  I became a streamer because I enjoy interaction, video games, and just all around entertaining!

4. Why did you become a streamer for Twitch?

                 I became a streamer for Twitch as a means to get myself out of my shell and become a better talker, and to share my content with the world. I love what I do and I hope you will as well!

5. How long have you been a streamer?

                I have been attempting to stream for about 2 years, but just recently for about 2 and half months have I done it religiously.

6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? And if you’re comfortable saying what, what is your other job?

                I am currently unemployed, this is still a hobby for me but would love to make this my job!

7. What are your favorite games to play?

               First person shooters, Survival, Simulators, and anything I can narrate!

8. What are your favorite games to stream?

              I would have to say that I really don’t know. I have a love and hate for all the games I play. But above all I really like Player Unknowns Battlegrounds.

9. Do you have any games you’d like to recommend to my readers to play and why?

               If you ever played any games in your life I would suggest playing Final Fantasy, it is a wonderful story based series that will tug on your heart strings, make you smile and even make you laugh!

10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?

               Yes it was, and still is. I am unsure if I could ever overcome the anxiety it causes. But I love doing it.

11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel?

                I may not be the best, I may not be the funniest. But I promise you have a home in my channel and being here makes you special to me. I personally interact with everyone even if means letting myself die in game. In my channel everyone is equal and loved and I promise you will be entertained.

Twitch Streamer Series – Part 54

Twitch Streamer Series – Part 54

Another fabulous streamer and one I am happy to call a friend of mine is this next wonderful lady who is a gamer and a creative streamer who definitely puts a smile on my face. And she tries to put smiles on everyone’s faces too. She is actually married to another streamer who I had the honor of interviewing- Cyb3rDragon. They are a funny couple who’s streams are fantastic. And her theme for her channel is Alice in Wonderland. How cool is that?   But now let’s get to know AAsendent shall we?

 

1. What is your twitch name?
                  AAsendent but everyone calls me Sendy.
2. Is there a reason why you chose that name?
                  It is from one of my many TV show obsession Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda. Admittedly it is spelt slightly wrong but we will pretend that was intentional haha. My bot RomDoll is also from the same show. I planned on integrating the show into the channel more but realized many people are unaware of it so best not to for now.
3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?
                  To be honest, I only ever joined Twitch to support the hubby Cyb3rDragon but after a little while it was suggested as a joke that I tried streaming myself. Naturally after the first few streams I was hooked haha. I am glad I did though as I love interacting with people in chat, to the point where sometimes I forget I am meant to be playing a game lol.
4. Why did you become a streamer for Twitch?
                 As above really, I have never really entertained the idea of using a different platform.
5. How long have you been a streamer?
                  I think its been about 6 months on and off, I took a break for a couple of months due to stuff at home. I am off for a few weeks now as on holiday but I will be back at it as soon as I am home again.
6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? And if you’re comfortable saying what, what is your other job?
                   Job title: Ring leader to the newly name Spawns of Sendy. (aka Mother of 3…4 if you include Cyb3r)
7. What are your favorite games to play?
                   My favourites change so often as I generally obsess over things for months at a time and then not touch them again for a while. At the moment FFXV, Crash Bandicoot, Sims, Overwatch and most recent is Fortnite. There are others I want to really play but until I have more monies they will have to wait
8. What are your favorite games to stream?
                  Any form of the Sims for sure, its a pretty chill game to stream so I can keep up with the chatting while doing so. We have a lot of fun with the story line aspects on the game and I am looking forward to starting Sirens Asylum in the next month too. Crash is another favourite but that is purely down to the amount of rage that game induces. Once I am back from Holiday expect to see Fortnite for a bit too.
9. Do you have any games you’d like to recommend to my readers to play and why?
                  Crash Bandicoot remastered…EVERYONE needs to feel that rage! lmao
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 was a little but a lot of my viewers I talk to in other channels so it was just like talking to friends, some days it is harder than others and I still get stupid nervous before starting stream or taking down the setting up screen from time to time.
11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel?
                Hey guys! Why not come join us some time, don’t worry we wont bite..to hard haha
Want to meet this fiery woman yourself and have some fun while we all laugh and chat together while she plays games or even once in a while gets creative? Then you will want to follow her at her channel: https://www.twitch.tv/aasendent

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 50

Streamer Hype! I really appreciate all of my readers for continuing on this journey with me for all of these great streamers. I may not be that knowledgable in all things twitch or gaming but I do know that interviewing these gamers has been pure joy.

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                         Samgria
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                     Yes, because I love sangria. So I mixed my name with it!
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                 At first it was mostly for me so I could clip awesome things that happen while I gamed, but now I do it for the small community I have and because it’s fun to entertain people!
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                               I wouldn’t say I’m a streamer for Twitch, since I don’t work for them and just do this on the side for fun :smiley:
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                           About half a year, was a long time viewer on twitch and then decided to start streaming once I got a better computer.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                              Nope, I don’t only stream! I do have another job. I am a QA Tester for a company in Montreal!
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                          League of Legends, Dead by Daylight, Player Unknowns Battlegrounds, Animal Crossing.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                                  League of Legends and Dead by Daylight. But I stream a lot of horror games as well on the side since my viewers like seeing me scared.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                 Not really, everyone has their preferences :smiley:
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                              Yes, I found it extremely difficult and when I first started streaming I’d only stream while I was gaming with a friend so I’d have them to talk to the whole time. Took me maybe a month or so. But now I feel completely confident with talking to my viewers :smiley:
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                                 Well, all I have to say is that I have a bubbly personality and if you like seeing a girl get drunk and play horror games. Then my streams the stream for you :smiley:

 

If you like to watch a streamer play horror and get scared, here is your chance. But of course, that’s not all she will play and she has a lot of fun while streaming. Go join her in her channel  twitch.tv/samgria and say hi.

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 49

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 49

There are those streamers who enjoy using their cameras and those who don’t so it’s always a different experience when you can see the streamer and their reaction to just hearing their reactions through their voices while they play games. My favorite are always those with the camera on and they have decided to play horror games because their facials are hilarious!

 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                           My Twitch name is Banestorm and you can find me on twitch at twitch.tv/banestorm.
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                      A majority of my pc gaming career was spent playing MMORPG’s one of which was World of Warcraft which I played for 11 years. I was always creating characters and deleting them, putting them in the guild and taking them out. Wasn’t long before members couldn’t keep up with all my characters so to make it easier I always created my character as Bane something. Banestorm was one of the names I carried into other games as well, especially anything where I was gonna have lightning abilities.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                      My wife and I are parents to a special needs daughter with physical and developmental issues. At periods throughout her life, she has needed extra help and support at home to aid her in school, physical therapy etc. As she is older now and spends a majority of her time in school, I searched for something to keep me busy while I took my turn as the homemaker. That’s when I found Twitch. I was hooked instantly.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                                   Because that’s where the party is at. Quite honestly it had more people than any other streamer service so there was more people to meet and possibly game with because I was, and continue to be, a follower for several communities. I like being part of different communities for different games and Twitch provides the most options.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                           I’m currently on my third year of streaming and have no plans to stop soon.
  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’m currently streaming full-time thanks to having perhaps the greatest wife on the planet. When we sat and talked about the opportunity I had to do this thing while staying at home with my daughter, she told me to go for it. She has been 100% behind me for this without hesitation. Even on my worst days when I want to throw in the towel she is the one who picks me up tells me to reach for the dream. 
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                           I enjoy a lot of different genres and I’m generally down to try most titles. The games that I really enjoy the most are multiplayer games such as co-op pve games or squad/team based pvp games. I occasionally play single player story driven games but not to often.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                                       As a variety streamer I play a lot of different games on stream from popular games that don’t take a lot of time to pick up and learn and even less time to master to games that have a higher skill cap and require some instruction or research to get you started. But, to be quite honest my favorite part is learning a game with my community. Whether it be a new game or an older game that I’ve never played I love sitting down and asking questions about the game and letting the chat teach me. And I love when I’m learning a game on stream and someone else who is just learning comes into the chat. We begin to form this brainstorm learning environment. One of the hardest things about learning a game is knowing WHAT questions to ask and in a group environment that process can really spark conversation.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                                 There so many I could recommend but generally when answering this question I like to pick 2 games that almost always get passed up
    by gamers.                                                                                                                                                       War Thunder is a cross-platform multiplayer vehicular combat MMO set in the World War II era. It has both hand and airplane combat with naval combat currently in development. It has arcade, realistic, sim and custom combat modes. It has what I believe is the best free to play model for F2P games and has infinite value because you never have to spend a penny in this game to enjoy its full content. While premium vehicle and premium time are available to help you grind tech trees faster they are not required or are often given away as rewards or
    prizes for events.                                                                                                                                                Mechwarrior Online is also a free-to-play vehicular combat MMO by Piranha Games that has, you guessed it. BIG STOMPY ROBOTS. This game is quite possibly the best F2P game on the market. The community is absolutely amazing and the Mechwarrior Universe is as rich in lore and content out of  the game as titles like Warhammer 40K and Warcraft. If I were to settle into one game and make it my main game, this would be it.
  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 still hard for me on a daily basis. As a person who grew up in a small town where everyone knows each other large groups of people or public speaking scares me to death. I have the absolute worst stage fright. I find the more comfortable I get with a game and talking about it, the easier it becomes to initiate or engage in a conversation with a viewer. But anytime I try something new, I have to walk around and pump myself up before stream, look in the mirror give myself the motivational speech, pretty much everything short of throwing up. 
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                                 Just that I hope anyone interested in stopping should know I am an absolutely terrible gamer. I have definitely passed my prime in gaming and my prime probably wasn’t that good. I aspire to be average and most games so because of that I’m in it for fun of it. I do play some competitive games like Overwatch or Heroes of the Storm but rarely get on the ladders to rank up. I want everyone to have a fun experience where winning is secondary. I have always been taught and still believe in my heart… It’s not whether you win or lose but HOW you play the game!

 

Don’t listen to his hogwash about being a terrible gamer! He does just fine when I go visit him and watch his stream. Though I mostly lurk in there, it is a great stream. And he likes to play with others and that always makes it even more entertaining. His channel is  twitch.tv/banestorm so come and join him.
