    STREAM CHALLENGE – This Sunday at 9am CST

    2014.04.18_YayzeCOM_StreamChallengeBanner

    I wanted to tell you guys (the world) or whoever visits my website (no one) that I am going to attempt and break into the world of streaming… as a job. Am I crazy or what!? Yeah, no really, I’m completely serious. I’ve been watching many streams in-between study sessions and rehearsals,  and now that I’m done my second year of university, I want to stream… games. Over the last few weeks I’ve been doing research and setting up the proper tools and equipment to do it viably, and I’m just about there.

    I know it won’t be easy, and it is somewhat of a long-shot. But hey, I’ve got the will and the equipment to do it, so why not give it a go? This Sunday, April 20, 2014, marks the the first day of my one week trial stream challenge. What’s a stream challenge? It’s when a streamer streams every single day for a long-ass time for a set number of days, without a break. One week is on the short end of the scale, as many streams tend to go for three months or longer. That’s why I threw “trial” in front of it. Essentially, if this first week of streaming works out to some extent in that I get a small following, I will extend it by another week… and so on.

    So, starting this Sunday, April 20, 2014, at 9:00am CST, I will be streaming video games for literally 9 hours straight. 9 HOURS! Every single day, for 7 days straight. So tune in at http://twitch.tv/yayze and follow me, chat with me, and if you like what you see, toss a buck or two my way. It goes a long way in supporting me and you will win my eternal love. <3

    There will also be giveaways! That’s right! I’m calling them “giftaways” because, well, I’m just so clever, and they are open to all viewers, but you must be watching in order to get a chance to win.

    You can watch the stream here on my site, or hit that link:  http://twitch.tv/yayze

    My first week will be an Assassin’s Creed marathon. I will be playing from the beginning of Assassins Creed: Revelations all the way to the end of Assassin’s Creed 4. That’s three full games, unless the viewers decide they want to see something else. If week one is successful, I will put up a poll for week two and let the viewers decide what I play.

    So come watch and keep me company! What have you got to lose?

    For those wondering, here’s a more in-depth look at my schedule for the currently planned stream challenge:

    UMvC3 has the only exception of being 3/5 sets throughout the entire bracket.

    We follow the standard EVO rule set. This includes banned wireless controllers. This is a BRING YOUR OWN STICKS/CONTROLLER event. All games will be played on US Playstation 3 consoles.

    The console equipment will be labeled and registered to ensure its safety. However, please be careful with your sticks. Furthermore, if you know you’re attending and you do not have a stick to use, make sure you have a friend who can donate.

    For pad/PS2 stick players, we tend to have PS2 pads and/or converters around, but don’t take this as confirmation of us having them there for you. Bring your own to be safe as opposed to being disqualified for not having a controller available at time to play. We cannot hold up the tournament for your convenience.
