As you know we are avid gamers over here at Scified, so much so that for if we are not tending to our duties on the network Chris and I can usually be found online playing something or other. SCFD Clan followers will know that we currently play exclusively on the Xbox One on games such as GTA Online.
We have also been listening to call from many of our fans for a Scified podcast, and while this is something both Chris and I, as well as Gman2887 are definitely interested in pursuing in the near future, the logistics and involved makes it somewhat difficult for the moment. But where there is a will there is a way...
Having been a fan of the British gaming team called the Yogscast (pictured above) for quite some years now I have been enjoying their recent move to Twitch streaming, in which they play a game live and banter with each other and the viewers via a chat room of which each stream channel is allocated its own. With the Xbox One able to stream a player's gameplay through their Twitch channel, we can have a live podcast with video of myself playing a video game of choice with Chris and/or Gman2887 joining in the banter through Xbox lives voice chat.
To that end, I have created a Twitch account in my "old" name of Snorkelbottom and set it up ready to stream some ranked play of Overwatch (my current game of choice) this coming Friday, January 6th, 2016, between 21:00 and 23:00 GMT (London time). The broadcast will start microphone-less until we have some veiwers, and hopefully either Chris or Gman2887 will be able to join in the banter and/or the gaming fun.
This broadcast will be our first and a test to see if there is demand, so if a Scified podcast/broadcast is what you want then be sure to let us know by watching the stream HERE, this coming Friday, January 6th, 2016, between 21:00 and 23:00 GMT (London time).
