This journal is to help me summarize my thoughts over the streams that I complete on Twitch. Last night, I streamed L.A. Noire. I always find it pleasing to play and stream this game. The noir genre has always been one of my favorites, so I enjoy the opportunity to play this game that’s based on classic noir films.
L.A. Noire isn’t too much of a challenging game, unless you want to solve each mystery thoroughly. In that case, you need to look for all clues at a crime scene and get questions correct during interrogations. I’m familiar with this game as I’ve completed one previous playthrough. I breezed through the patrol desk as it’s just the game teaching players the controls in brief assignments. When players get to the traffic desk, the pace slows down and the cases get more detailed. That, to me, is when the games become entertaining.
I know that my next step is to get a LAN cable to quicken my internet’s speed. I think that it would help my video output as well. The best that I can run at is 540p at the moment. I would like to get higher than that, but I don’t have the equipment currently. I’m going to have to take small steps to get there.
The stream ran for over 3 hours. I was hoping for 4, but started getting hungry. You really have to push yourself to complete long streams. I’m going to shoot at least for 3 hours each stream, but I’d like to go longer. Streaming is challenging, yet rewarding.
