Every week I’ll post a thread on http://www.reddit.com/r/Destiny/ with the top 5 questions you want me to answer. They can be pretty much anything you want. I’ll answer the top 5 most upvoted questions.
Doing this for two reasons – 1) so I can keep in contact with the community, and 2) to help answer some commonly asked questions here to alleviate all of the e-mails I get.
“I got caught in a youtube loop of old destiny videos recently and with pretty much all of them, you would have a group of people on skype to shoot the shit with. That seems incredibly rare now. Is this just because you’re reaching the age where your friends have less time to sit and play video games or is it a change in your approach to playing. You seem to focus more on getting better nowadays.
A condensed version: Is there a reason for the lack of skype shenanigans or is it just people getting jobs and wives and white, picket fences and 9-5s?”
A lot of the friends that used to play no longer play anymore, unfortunately. Kyle’s pretty busy with schoolwork and what not, or Dota 2, as well. I also need to concentrate harder, and there were times in the past where I would have to hang up with people on Skype because I get angry for losing a game due to broken concentration.
“I don’t wanna get personal and don’t respond it if makes you uncomfortable to disclose to ‘all’ of Reddit but how’d everything turn out with Erisann? Any public last thoughts about this past weekend? Again, if its too personal I understand.
We’re still fine. Going against everything I’ve ever said before, we’re trying to make the long distance relationship thing work. I don’t mind being too candid about me, personally, but I’m a bit uncomfortable sharing things concerning other people’s personal lives. As for public thoughts on everything that happened, meh. Lots of mixed feelings about everything, but I could write pages about that and I don’t feel like being torn asunder by legions of morally elitist internet armchair white knights.
“How was your life throughout high school? Any specific events or hobbies that stood out?”
Some pretty stupid shit happened, but my life was nothing to complain about. My main hobbies were vidya and music. And making people laugh.
“You have said before that you follow some rules as to streaming. One of them was that you wouldn’t listen to certain “like it or hate it” stuff in order to prevent driving people away from your stream. You had the exception of listening to Immortal Technique “because fuck you guys” as I recall. What other music do you listen to regularly at the moment that you wouldn’t play on stream for these reasons, if any?”
Those weren’t really “set in stone” rules so much as they were guidelines or suggestions for new streamers trying to make it. I don’t follow much of those rules because I’ve already established a fan base. I pretty much play whatever music I want to on stream. If I were trying to edit it to have more mainstream appeal, I’d get rid of anything having any “screaming” (Emery, Opeth) in it, and probably a lot of the “dirtier” (less cleanly produced) post-rock (te’, wang wen, etc..).
“Do you plan on joining a new team since you aren’t in root?”
No clue at the moment, everything’s up in the air.
