Hm... On the fence on if I'll watch this one. I guess if I'm home I'll maybe put it on.

The Dreamfall stream was really only fun for me because of the IRC. So I'm hesitant. But. It's DFC and a good cause... :/

Do you mean streaming yourself, or watching one?

 

The quality setting is very expensive in both bandwidth and processing power (for twitch), so it's only available to "twitch partners" - which basically means it's only available when you have enough consistent followers. It will be present in Quills stream today.

 

Was hoping it wasn't something based on $$. Thanks for the info and quick response. :(

 

Ah, well... such is life. And yeah, I was asking about watching. I doubt if I could do a live streaming even if I wanted to with the set up I have. ^_^

Hmm. Am I the only one here who actually like Quill and catch his streams regularily?

You may have misunderstood me - viewers don't have to pay anything!

The deal is that since it's costly for twitch, they only enable the feature for streamers with a good core audience, since the cost is then made up for by add revenue.

I like the guy, but im not usually interested in what he streams. He did some good unity videos I think on his youtube chan a good while back.

I'd never seen him until the Dreamfall stream, which I didn't find great. His other streams might be more my taste.

Also, I think part of it was that Dreamfall wasn't a great game for that sort of thing.

DFC should be better. (And the opinion polls will actually matter. :P)

Yeah, I understood that it doesn't cost me anything. I was feeling sad for those that couldn't do it because of monetary restrictions. I don't think I'm the only one who has trouble with lagging, which equals not as many participants when the option isn't available.

Unless he gets stuck in the Storytime puzzles for hours!

That was a good run. He was too much* impressed by the game and he didn't even reach Europolis!

 

*seriously, he was praising it like crazy. Even I can't say so many good things about the pre-Europolis part (I consider it the weakest part of Book 1)

I just hope at least a few people go ahead and purchase the game. I noticed a number of folks that hadn't a clue about Dreamfall. Didn't see much praising going on in the chat but after the whole raffle debacle watching the game kind of became derailed in my opinion.

Yeah, the RecApp should be a priority for RTG along with the performance issues. Several reviews have mentioned the lack of it as well...

I agree. The RecApp could possibly make a big difference for many people. It's sad to see potential players "lost" because of the lore confusion.

I must say, I quite enjoyed the look of utter astonishment he wore a few times.

Yeah, I don't envy RTG right now as they continue to try to take care of all that needs to be done but I agree that having the recap will be great once it's up and running.

 

Oh, and thanks for the link. Really enjoyed myself and was very happy that Quill seemed excited about a lot of aspects of the game. I also like that he does the polls so chat becomes more involved.  :)
