I read that and was like, “I included those!”
I changed it to be:
- Tabletop games, board/card/roleplaying
I had meant that to include both dedicated game clients as well as tabletop simulators.
You know, I was about to say how much I kinda dislike those, but then I thought how fun it would be to play D&D 4e on a grid in OpenRPG or something, and I think that might be a lot of fun.
@tim brought up the idea to me, but I don’t have any streaming experience. I should say: I know how to self-host a streaming server, and the requisite tech, bandwidth, and clients… but I haven’t done it.
I am open to this, but stand unconvinced I would enjoy it. Live plays, for instance, hold absolutely no interest to me. I love the idea of playing Smash Bros on 3DS or ROMs via RetroArch, where there is an interactive element…
Oh, maybe we could stream some element of it over anonradio! Anyone want to upstage James and narrate their retro-playthrough!
In other news, I won’t be surveilled to watch someone play, so unless there are alternative services, I have to take my self-hosted toys and go home! =P
