Youtube Update: Expanding to Warframe

Warframe 101

Some of you may be aware that I have recently expanded my Youtube content for more than just short form let’s plays. Here is the first of many planned Warframe videos I plan on releasing in the next few weeks. I took care with this video to summarize and condense the assault of information out there on starting this addicting F2P game. I hope to take the same approach in upcoming video essays and other tutorials for this kind of complex content.

Stay tuned for more tutorials and fun videos and catch my streams for more Warframe action.

I’ve started streaming on Twitch!

Twitch.tv is not only a popular site for the e-sports scene, but gaming communities in general. I have decided it will be useful (and fun!) to start streaming from my own Twitch channel to not only better understand the inner workings of the site, but also to place emphasis on gameplay itself in my work. Let’s be honest, I play games hours a day anyways, so I may as well stream it and talk to a screen in the process.

I hope to stream most weekday nights around 8:00pm. Games will include with single and multilayer games of varying genres and commentary provided will be of varying academic (or non-academic) nature.
