Imperial Gaming Network (the OTHER IGN)

So, I'm dabbling with the concept of live streaming gameplay footage. I can do this to show people parts of games thet have seen little public hype, to offer game walkthroughs or achievement tips, broadcast some multiplayer shenanigans... you name it.

I've set up a show called the Imperial Gaming Network on UStream for my broadcasted content. I already have one video up, showing the end of Chapter 9 and all of Chapter 10 of Enslaved. It's a great game that hasn't seen mass sales, so it's the right type of game to use to start this project. I understand the video quality leaves a lot to be desired. I'm looking into ways to improve that with what I already have available to me, and may invest in tools to make this even better if the idea becomes popular.

Since videos are currently being filmed using my laptop's webcam, I cannot chat and stream at the same time. I will need to acquire a second camera to do that.

Future streaming sessions will be announced via this blog and twitter. All sessions will be recorded so you can catch the action later if you missed it.

What sort of things would you like to see me stream? How can this effort entertain and/or inform you? I'm open to any and all feedback.

On a seperate note, does anyone know how to make multiple pages for the top of the blog? I seem to be too dumb to make more beyond the "Home" tab, and I'd like to make more to reorganize the blog. Look at how Stallion's blog is set up. I'm aiming for something similar, though my categories would obviously be different.

  2. To make multiple pages you have to:

    - click on design
    - click on posting
    - click on edit pages (just under the posting tab you just clicked)
    - then there should be an option to make a new page.

  3. Matt beat me to it. Damn.

    I can't wait to see what kinds of things you stream. Can't way I'll always remember to check the new stuff, but I'll do my best!
