Live streaming on YouTube and Twitch every Mon, Wed, and Fri at 6pm Pacific!


#1

Now that Quarter to Three has a YouTube channel, I’ll be live streaming every other weekday night from 6pm to 8pm Pacific at youtube.com/quartertothreevideos/live and twitch.tv/tomchick. So that’s Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Come on by and join the chat/heckling/live assistance! All streams will be archived here.

If you have anything you’d like to see, a drawing for Request Wednesday will be held every Monday at 7pm. Anyone in the chat channel can submit a game for consideration at any point, or post your request in the comments section for one of the videos.


Dark Souls 1 - why is this not clicking?
#2

OK handy, thanks. Do you do requests on the TBD days?


#3

This is purely selfish, but I would love to see how you play Renowned Explorers. I just haven’t been able to wrap my brain around all the pieces of the combat system. Less selfishly, the game is beautiful and really fun to look at, so I think it could be a good game to show off.


#4

Pleaaaaaaaasssseeeeeeee.


#5

Ha ha whoops, was that request note always there or did Tom edit?


#6

This, definitely this.

Would definitely love to see Tom play Renowned Explorers, if only for strategy tips!


#7

Absolutely! The schedule is wide open for TBDs. And I’m rarin’ to do some Renowned Explorers! What I’m not sure is how much time to block out for certain games, whether I should fuss with focusing on new stuff over old stuff, if two hours is too long, if nightly is too frequent, etc. I have no handle on how to do this stuff.

As for Rules of Engagement 2, dude. The 80s are over, Rubin! Haven’t you heard? FTL is teh new hotness. Although I would like to do Into the Stars. I presume you’ve tried that one. I find it, uh, oddly fascinating.

<pedant> This was 1993, good sir. Clearly the greatest decade for video games. </pedant>

May you find it less horribly dull and dreadful than I.


#9

The Omnitrend Universe started ten years before that.

/pedant mic drop :)

#10

Sigh, did I aasssssskkkkk you to play the entirety of the Omnitrend Universe series? (Side note: please, like I don’t know when it began. I personally know the creators.)

;)

Seriously though, I wanna see your 2016 brain handle a very 1993 interface.

But alright, fine, I’ll come up with another, more recent, less demanding request.


#11

Pshaw!

You might think that Rules of Engagement 2 screen looks daunting – and I suppose it would to the average bear – but I see that screenshot and I think “ooh, what does that button do, and what is that readout, and what’s on that display?” Let me at it! I remember fondly figuring out those Omnitrend sims.

#12

Hahahahahahah, I hear ya man. I look at that ROE2 screenshot and wanna push allllllll the buttons. :)

After playing the earlier games (correction, TRYING to play them), I find it funny that the screenshot above is of one of their least mystifying interfaces.


#13

Also, in the Rules of Engagement 2 screenshot, look at ALL THOSE CLEARLY LABELED [I]HOTKEY INDICATORS[/I]! /nerdgasm

#14

I know, isn’t it great?!?


#15

There are few things on the Internet I find more endearing than listening to Tom try and not swear.


#16

Right?

So adorable.


#17

Shoot a monkey! I hadn’t heard that before the DS3 stream.

Tom, if I have a request, it’s to stream a 1v1 or a 2v2 team match of Chaos Reborn (that way the game ends when you lose… I mean [I]if[/I] you lose). I volunteer to be one of your challengers. I promise not to look at the stream and see your cards and whether or not you’re casting illusions! You trust me, right?

Would be great fun to do that, although I could only really do it on a Tuesday or Thursday.


#18

I hate time zones, and seriously why are you doing all the fun stuff while I’m sleeping


#19

The weird thing is I’m hardly aware of saying it. it’s entirely reflexive. For example, I don’t think I’d every actually write that.

Assuming you’re not just kidding, it is [I]so on[/I]. And not just because an Australian* accent would really class up the joint. PM sent!

Oddly enough, given the hours I keep, it would be way more convenient for me to do these at a time more convenient for you!

By the way, the streams get archived for later viewing, but I suspect being able to hurl realtime invective/encouragement is half the fun.

  • please tell me I successfully trolled you

#20

Oops, meant to post that the Friday Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked stream starts in an hour. Well, 47 minutes. 6pm Pacific!

Monday and Tuesday: Renowned Explorers
