Anyone streaming XCOM:EU on launch?

#1 Edited by Dredlockz (344 posts) -

So, living in europe means getting the game, like, three days later.

I was wondering if any of you fine duders will be streaming their whole XCOM experience so I can tune in to that in the meantime.

Hopefully someone doing Ironman and a difficulty of classic or above. I will be watching you play, while touching myself passionately, for the whole duration, is that weird?

A bit weird, but each to his own, I'm not judging.

While it isn't exactly Live, there will probably be tons of YouTube playthroughs of this uploaded continually. I actually prefer that over watching a live stream. I can't say whether Classic/Iron Man is what these guys will be playing on, but I'm guessing no for the majority.

Yeah, guess I'll have to look around twitch.com when the time comes

Did you come here straight from 4chan or something?

@Azteck: Yeah, that was unnaturally 4Channy of me, I have reviewed and edited it for less cringeness

@Dredlockz: Hope you didn't take offense, I certainly didn't mean it. I just sound like it sometimes. :(

I don't understand why you'd want to watch a live stream of a game you intend to play a few days later?

@lclay: Yeah, i really shouldn't, But I can't help myself. I'm really stupidly obsessed about this game.

Just so you get an idea. I have seen pretty much all videos, previews, screenshots and interviews about this game. I'm getting three copies of the game: One for the console at the office, a signed PC collectors copy from the dev team (A buddy of mine works at firaxis), and one preordered from steam (because I don't want to wait whatever time it takes for them to get it signed, and then send it over Fed-Ex to europe).

I was hoping to watch one of you real duders playing it while it unlocks here, wanted to make it special, you know? Not just watch whatever dude in twitch.com streaming, cus they're usually popular for being loud and/or obnoxious.

@Azteck: No offense. Thanks for bringing it up, part of why I love giantbomb is because its not full of shit like that, so I immediately felt bad about it. :)

Man, I hope it turns out to be good.
