On my computer monitor with an alcoholic beverage. That's how I usually watch Gb shows in general. I did however watch the Gb commentary on the Sony and Microsoft conferences on my 46 in. Tv. Good times.

Staying up until very late, only to fall asleep 20 minutes before it starts.

I'm not. They are on way too late so I have to wait for the archives since the stuff on twitch is unwatchable the last month as it only saves it in 720p. I can't afford to stay up that late and screw up my sleeping for the work week even though I have the time off for the actual days, and it always takes them forever to get the real archives up. Just another reason E3 has really sucked for me this year.

For the first time in years I'm feeling positive and excited about the future of gameplay, I don't need the GB dudes to dampen my spirit with their cynical wisdom!

Waiting till the archive is up, download it, put it on an external HD, plug the external HD to my BluRay player and then watch it on my 40 in. TV sitting/lying on the couch together with the cat and a beverage of my choice.

k, i find their shit hill-arious so I couldn't disagree with you more.

Good stuff man, it's good to be able to do this stuff aye!

Just check the website every once in a while on my laptop. Luckily, I was scheduled to have this week off from work so I can stay up late for their E3 streams.

Unfortunately the stream is scheduled to start at 4am for me. I tried to watch it this morning but the late starting time just sent me straight back to sleep. I'm going to be watching them archived on twitch because that way I can sit back and enjoy!

...on my ipad while playing games on my TV. They make side quests in RPGs a lot more tolerable.

Just watching it on my couch with the laptop and headphones. The visuals can be interesting at times, but the audio is the biggest part of it. Already had a good laugh tonight. Hopeful for tomorrow's stream to be even better.

Yea same here, awaiting it with bated breath. Any word on this yet (we only just got the closed envelope podcast)?

#21 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

On a TV as well. Though I'm not a crazy person so I'm looking at it from a normal persons perspective and not from a weird angle

#22 Edited by rebgav (1429 posts) -

I listened to the audio last night while finishing Remember Me. It did not make the game any better but it's cheaper than a lobotomy.

Tonight I must make progress in LOTR War in the North. I am hoping that the livecast is doubly entertaining or, at the very least, sufficiently numbing.

Question asked;question answered. The day one podcast is up!

I've been playing animal crossing while listening (taking peeks at the live stream), guess this is what addiction feels like.

I listen to the podcast. I'm either at work or in the middle of commuting when the stream goes live. The podcast has been a savior on a long commute on more than one occasion.

#29 Edited by Scrawnto (2452 posts) -

I had to get to bed early so I could make an appointment early this morning, so I'm watching the archived stream after the fact. I watched part 1 in a low res stream at work. I'll watch part 2 at home on my nice TV. Hopefully I can watch Day 2 live tonight.

PC to TV across the room, controlled with my handy Logitech wireless keyboard/trackpad. Stuff like this makes me love the convenience of modern technology, and effectively having an HTPC is really awesome.

I got up early Wednesday to catch the last bit, missed it this morning. I've tried to watch the twitch archives but they are too hi res for my shoddy connection. Once the archives are on the site I'll be all over the stuff I've missed!

#33 Posted by BBAlpert (1491 posts) -

Orally ;D

Actually I've had it up on my TV while I play the new Animal Crossing game. I started out trying to listen to it as a podcast on my commute to/from work, but there are just too many people with unfamiliar voices so I couldn't tell who was talking at any given point. Unless the person talking happened to be Ryan, Max Temkin, or Jeff shouting from his bed at the back of the set.

They're on too early in the morning for me so I haven't been able to watch any of them live. However I've got a wedding to go to on Saturday so there's a glorious hungover Sunday ahead of me chock full of back-to-back archives, Polish lager and comfort food

#35 Posted by kaos_cracker (602 posts) -

Watching it the day after it is out on twitch cuz I enjoy sleeping and I gotta work in the mornings.

#36 Posted by tracerace11 (289 posts) -

It is too late for me. I am listening to the podcasts the next day. I really hope they release the videos. The day two podcast is AMAZING.
