After four months of being inactive on Twitch, I started streaming again on twitch, and it went well. Played some Spelunky, and Genshin Impact on Twitch. It was a fun time. :3 I feel taking a break from twitch helps me enjoy it better.
Spelunky is hard but a blast to play through. It does not hold any punches. If you play reckless, you will learn the hard way. I got to 2-1 a few times but I love this Genre of games. It’s good stuff
Going to stream on twitch, if I still feel the same way about streaming from my last blog posts, then this will be the last stream. I will still be on twitch, just won’t stream is all.
Going to do Elsword PVP, Sonic stuff, maybe coding, and have touhou eurobeat music playing. It has been 2 months since my last stream. Kinda crazy but it’s crazy what two months can do to you in 2020, huh.
Then ThunderCry, the guild I talked so highly about, I’m having second doubts about staying. but no one cares If I left, so I will blog about it and my feelings so far
Well, if you plan on watching, come by or not. I will be streaming for a hour or two. could be longer but will see what happens if something comes up or whatever
So, It’s time I give Sonic 3D in 2D A second go. After my first impression of the game was very not all too good. I did not like the game. You can read up on my first impressions here: Sonic The Hedgehog 3D in 2D
So, why am I playing this game again? The game got a number of updates which has fixed some things and I want to give this game a another chance. I doubt I will get all emeralds but I will try to get all the emeralds
If I had not watched MastaKirby’s stream, I would probably would have tried to get all the emeralds in Sonic 3D In 2D but since MastaKirby unlocked all the characters? I don’t have a reason to beat Sonic 2D in 3D with everyone, just Sonic.
So, when will this stream happen? Probably around 7 Am on Wednesday or whenever this post goes live, If I am free. I will be using the newest version of the fangame, and taking notes of bugs that I find and tell the dev about them for the blog post. I will blog about the bugs as well.
But, should be interesting? I am not too hopeful that my impression of the game has changed, if anything, it may be worse. But time will tell. I am in a better state of mind or at least in a better mindset.
I started streaming more when I joined ThunderCry, and a cool lass offered to make me some Livestream stuff like stream overlay and stream panels, which they didn’t have to do. It’s pretty rad that she offered to make me which is cool. I still feel bad that I have no money to pay for this.
To make up for that. Give her Patreon a look. She has tiers you can play for, and her content is high quality and worth checking out. I never tried out her stream tools but I’m sure they are of high quality as well.
If you happen to buy a tier from her Patreon or sub or follow her on twitch, be sure to tell her that OnyChaos sent you. Would be rad if you did. Support her. In these trying times, we gonna support people and help out :3
So, it’s time to try out YouTube streaming. Will be doing a test run to see how things go. It’s gonna be a test run of 20xx and maybe Elsword, lol. It’s gonna be my first time streaming to YouTube, should be a fun ride. Will need to setup a profile to stream to YouTube
And I been wanting to move from Twitch to a new platform anyway. And if YouTube turns out to be better then Twitch, for me, I will make streaming a YouTube thing from now on, if this test run goes well.
The only thing I hate is that if your stream disconnects on youtube, you have to make a new stream rather then reconnecting to start the stream back up. But other then that.. YouTube streaming is not looking too bad.
Going to be playing the MMORPG “Elsword” to level up my character to 90 or 85. You can come by and watch if you wish. :P
I will have chill music and fun gameplay. I will die.. A lot but that’s fun :D You can catch my stream by going here to https://www.twitch.tv/chaosony which I will be live for a hour or hours 2 Getting my old character to level 99 will be fun and I been sleeping on Elsword. Like, he is good. I wish I spent time on Elsword instead of Ain. :V
Taking a short break from coding my Sonic Fangame in Clickteam fusion 2.5 to stream a video game while cooking roast for tonight. Probably going to stream for a hour or so. Hoping to anyway. :3 Stream will start in 15 mins. Maybe sooner. gotta restart my pc first
Almost been two years since I played this. Where does the time go, huh? Also I think I’m going to drop neptunia rebirth 1 as a stream game since I already beaten the game. Going to give drop the game after 3 more streams of it.
But anyway. Going to stream
dust: an elysian tail for a hour or maybe more
and may have a call with friends. Don’t know yet. lol. Stream will be in follower mode and going forward.
To be a livestreamer in 2019 is rather a easy task. All you need is a good pc and /or laptop and streaming software, and you are good to go. Now, if you are trying to be a “big streamer” in 2019. You won’t have a easy time.
Let’s talk about somethings. To make it big, You need to stream often, but with so many streamers showing up each day. What do you do that makes “You” special? Simply streaming is not going to cut it anymore.
I want to address some things that seems to be forgotten.
Things to not do.
Never always expect viewers or friends to show up when you stream.
This is one of the most toxic mindsets to have. Because, if no one shows up, no one being those you expect to show up but don’t show up. Don’t lashout at them or give them shit. I get it. Being a streamer is hard but giving other shit because don’t show up will never excuse your shitty attitude towards them.
“But my friends show up” If some of your friends show up, they have free time which leads into point 2..
2. Don’t treat your viewers or friends different or like shit if they don’t show up.
The worst thing you can do is be a asshole but to get a attitude with someone or start treating people or friends different because they don’t watch you stream 100% of the time is pretty toxic.
Yes, being a streamer in 2019 is hard. And having returning viewers for your streams is also hard. And streaming almost non stop is tough. But no matter how hard, tough, or unfair the road to be a streamer is. When you start treating those like shit or differently. Your actions CAN NOT be justify by any means. lashing out at people who have done you no wrong or even supported you is messed up.
But here is why some may not show up.
3. Reasons people may not show up
They are busy and have a life
They are busy and may want to use what little free time to watch their favorite streamer
You are playing a game that they will want to play with the game being ruined for them
They are doing their own stream
They are working on something
You are one of many streamers, and maybe they want something new
Some streamers “BELIEVE” that everyone has free time and nothing better to do but come watch them, which is, not the case here.
Let’s talk about what is going on. I shall go into “great detail” with these topics.
Oh boy, can’t wait to make the internet mad with my silly reasons.
You can CTRL + F to find the topic you wish to view if, things get too long to read. :P
Table of contents
Ok, so, I’m sure 4 or 6 people noticed but my old twitter account @Soniksama is now inactive. I mean, it’s in the bio but people don’t read bios, that’s silly. Back on topic.
What does this mean for me? Well I’m fine and well. I feel pretty happy about doing this and making a new account. But I shall give my reasons for why I did this.
I wanted a new start
I wanted to start over on Twitter. I was not happy with the current account SonikSama. I wanted to have a do over and make a new name for myself, and distance myself from speedrunners and some people and toxic users
While I did have “friends” on the other account. My twitter was full of friends who left Twitter or couldn’t get back in. And the other side was people that followed me cause I was friends with someone else.
I like being followed, but if, it means being followed by people who are there, just to add a number to your follower count. I am the kind of guy where if, a friendship is not mutual in any way, it’s not worth having in my eyes. This is why I followed mutuals on my new account.
And I wanted to make new friends, my old friends, I have outgrew them
And I rather not be “known” as a speedrunner on my new account. I’m not too fond of speed running to begin with. I will talk about this, later on.
I wanted to re-brand myself as something else, using Sonik has got pretty old and it needs to be a change. And my Girlfriend gave me the best name.
I followed all the people who I have a mutual friendship with, and made one exception to someone who is not a mutual.
These are reasons that you will disagree with, but they are my reasons and hope you understand, if, not, oh well. I’m not gonna worry.
You might be asking “what’s the new Twitter account, Sonik?” Well, chances are, I’m following you. I am following people I trust, and are mutual friends.
There is a chance, I might have missed some friends. As long as you are still following @SonikSama on Twitter, I will be able to find you, If, you unfollow Soniksama, I’m not going to bother to look for you.
I have been more off then on with speedrunning games. I do see the point. Yes, you speedrun to test yourself, and see if, you can improve your skills and beat your time, and maybe beat someone else time.
I can understand the drive to be better, and that’s great. But this hobby is a mixed bag. Speedrunning can bring the very best out of people, and it can bring the worst out of people. A double edge sword
While I no longer care for speedrunning, that much, and their community, ugh, I will still do SRL races, and Individual Levels of games. Who knows, I may add speedrunning to my future games, but who knows
But I have to see what the future holds, If I do any speedruns, I will upload them to Twitch but I won’t put them on SRC, at least, the sonic speedruns anyway.
You thought I was gonna say something bad about speedrunning. Didn’t you?
Ah, this is something I lost interest in. I used to enjoy streaming to entertain viewers and chat with viewers, and other streamers. But as streaming gets more advanced on twitch, the harder it becomes to entertain viewers, let alone get any viewers.
I will give my reasons why I lost interest in streaming.
Shitty ISP or Twitch messing up.
There no one to really entertain anymore
I’m a small channel, I have no way of getting noticed or entertaining people
No one really watches, as most of the stuff I have done was done better by someone else.
I don’t enjoy streaming as much (After 5 years of streaming.. Damn, it has been that long), going from entertaining viewers to no one is a bummer.
“You should not worry about views, stream for fun” That used to work back in the old days of Twitch. Today, viewers seem to watch people speedruns, people rage at games, like fools, Social eating streams, IRL streams, and new game streams.
And the most common thing is Donation streams where people pay the streamer to watch freak out from bits or to donate for their “charity” Ugh.
It seems to be a common trend. Some shit is always going down. Twitch is full of nice people, but more than often, you meet the bastard who is nice but will stab you in the back later.
People assuming that other streamers are copying them, when they themselves copy others. Drama that happened with sunrose and someone else
Or disgusting is, people ganging up on those who were done wrong.
Why should I bother to stream when no one shows up? I can’t really compete with other streamers or have anything to offer that hasn’t already been done.
With the way Twitch is now, it’s hard for small channels like me to get anywhere. You have to stay relevant, in order to keep up on Twitch’s rat race. Yes, Twitch gives us the power to host to give small or big channels time in the light but it’s kinda worthless as it gets used on “bigger” streamers
So, to end this part, I will be doing 5 streams, assuming things go well.
Dec 5th, Dec 10th, Dec 15th, Dec 20th, Dec 25th And 31st as one bonus stream to end the last stream on new years
Game list below
Sonic Colors (if it works, and I can find it.)
Mario Kart Wii
crypt of the necrodancer
mighty switch force
Super Meat Boy
Once this happens, Any future streams will be for SRL races. But only time will tell how I will feel about streaming later in the future.
EDIT: I think I will take a break from streaming for a long while. :P
Boy. So I made a post about this topic. The main art for the hack is gone and level layout for Green hill Act one is, but it seems that levels that are edited will be wiped by some odd bug. So this hack is dead. It might just be a Special stage hack.
But it’s safe to say, this project is not gonna happen.
I been getting back into recording Let’s plays
Working on game dev stuff.
I have plans on making a Youtube let’s play Discord server.
