The Creative Writer: How to Stream Your Process and Entertain Viewers

So you want to be an author, and you want to stream your creative process on Twitch. Or, at least, you think you do. The first question you need to be asking yourself is, “Why do I want to stream my writing process on Twitch?” Hopefully, I can give you an answer. But, before I do, let me explain a little about myself and why I’m writing this in the first place. My name on Twitch is ErikMcKetten. I have been streaming games for almost two years now, mostly a little independent game called “Star Citizen.” You may have heard […]

EVE Online Going Free to Play!

Yes, you heard it right! After thirteen years, Eve Online is now offering a F2P option through a new mechanic they call Alpha Clones.

CCP, makers of Eve Online, have done an excellent job at staying relevant for as long as they have. While many MMO’s have come and gone, Eve has stood the test of time.

But it was a turning point for me as a human being and a soldier. Colonel Orlando, despite his rank and the fact that he was my […]
