Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone! This week, we’re talking about let’s plays and streaming video games. We could never do it. We’re too lazy.
As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and Pandora (or head over to our episodes page for even more options). Or just listen below
When did Let’s Plays become a thing? Why have many people started migrating from YouTube over to Twitch for gaming content? Does Twitch have problems of their own? How do game companies react to the prevalence of Let’s Plays? And why would you want to be a streamer anyway?
The Actual Discussion
We talked about YouTube vs Twitch and why someone might choose one or the other. Both services are seeking to expand out of being places for gaming to touch more industries, however. We talk about the stress of making your living on one of these platforms, even when you become successful. We also talk about streaming and let’s plays for the game developer side- the benefits and the drawbacks. Man, we didn’t talk about vtubers! That’s a whole other discussion
Enjoy the episode! Tell us what you think in the comments or on social media. Make sure to check out last week’s episode and look forward to next week’s where we’re talking about Amnesia: The Dark Descent and The Pathless
Make an effort this week too, if you can.
