=== Update ===
As of 09/06/2019, I have returned from my business trip and will continue with my usual livestreaming schedule. Thank you again for your patience with me.
=== Original Post ===
As of 08/29/2019, I've been informed by my place of employment that I will be travelling out of state for the weekend and part of next week, set to come back home at an undisclosed time. It could be as early as labor day, or it could be at late as that Friday. That will unfortunately mean that I'll be on hotel WiFi, and as anybody who has ever travelled will tell you, that shit is no good. Thanks for bearing with me!
I'm the Jaded Jackal. I confess to being a nihilistic cynic, but I've always held video games fondly in my heart. I'm never truly satisfied with what I play, so my rotation of games can be quite expansive. My favorite genres are MMOs and RPGs, although I am not opposed to shooters, MOBAs, puzzles, platformers, or strategy games.
I'm a college graduate that has worked a number of odd jobs, ranging from butcher to overseas English teacher in South Korea. I have a number of interests which span beyond games: philosophy, religiosity, ethics, rhetoric,, and even politics.
Please do note though that if we (myself and you, the viewers) engage in any kind of volatile topics such as politics, I'll take a brief moment to pause the stream and switch my channel over to X-content, per dlive's rules.
If you have any outstanding questions, just feel free to ask!
The tentative schedule for the stream is as follows:
Mondays: 4:15am - 7:15am EST
Wednesdays: 4:15am - 7:15am EST
Fridays: 4:15am - 7:15am EST
Saturdays and Sundays: I will try to keep the same starting time as the weekdays, but will have no definitive end time. I may take intermittant breaks and stop the stream a few times for several hours, but I'll do my best to keep the gaming going.
This is a list that I expect to grow over time, but to give you a good idea of the number and breadth of games that I play:
Heroes of the Storm
Borderlands (1, 2, Pre-Sequel, and 3 when it comes out)
Guild Wars 2
Elder Scrolls Online
Elder Scrolls Skyrim
Super Meat Boy
Path of Exile
Killing Floor 2
Left 4 Dead 2
Tons of emulator games (SNES, N64, etc.)
And a whole lot more!
Operating System: Windows 10
System type: 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz
Ram: 16 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
Headset: Razer Kraken TE
Microphone: Blue Yeti
Mouse: Razer Ouroboros
Other peripherals include two supplemental monitors, external hard drives, and Razer Orbweaver.
The music that you'll hear in the background is going to pull from either my Pandora, Spotify, or YouTube Music radio stations. The type of music that plays will range from 80s (the best era of music, thank you very much), to electronic rock and chiptune.
If you come to channels and expect to hear rap, country, polka, dubstep, screamo, or Christian worship songs, you will be sorely disappointed in my life choices.
At the moment, I'm still trying to put together and figure out a good method for having direct communications and updates with folks via Discord. I'm not sure if this is going to eventually be a "subscribers only" kind of deal, or if it'll be open for everybody and subscribers get special roles and privileges. Once it is up and running, I'll have more info here!
During the stream, you may see some comments appear on the side of the stream that are from other livestream platforms. At this time, my primary focus is dlive, unquestionably. However, I know that not everybody is in on this website or everything that it has to offer. The following are the other platforms that I passively stream to, but have not put in nearly as much work to them as my dlive channel:
Again, these are secondary and merely help for getting greater engagement and conversations going on stream.
Dlive has a great system in place with the Lino Points that can be cashed out for IRL money. However, if the opportunity does arise in the future where I am in the position to give out codes or full-fledged games for free, I will be putting those details here and announcing them on my streams as well.
Currently, I have nothing to give but my shining personality, but do check back here soon!
Lastly, I have a donate button for the kind souls who wish to gift me cold hard cash instead of Lino Points. This is by no means a necessity, nor will you ever see or hear me beg for anything. I tacked this on here for anybody who wishes to provide direct contributions to what I do as a hobby. Anything received through here will be considered a pleasant surprise, and you will have my deepest thanks from the bottom of my heart.
