Missed Our Live Stream? Watch the 6-Hour Replay Right Now!

image

If you missed our first Twitch live stream, you can watch the entire replay right now.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun on our first live stream event - we had a fantastic time and can't wait to do it again. But if you missed the stream, for whatever reason, you can watch the entire thing right here.

In the 6+ hours of our D&D Neverwinter stream, we leveled our Trickster Rogue (named Susan Finkledash) from 1 to 18, used way too many healing potions, and made a friend for life - our beloved pet wolf, Bacon (Bacon joins the crew at around the 5:24:00 mark).

We'd love to hear your feedback on our first stream, as well as suggestions for future streams. Thanks again, everyone!

I would watch it but I think I have 6 hours of paint drying to watch first.

You are able to skip around to various points in the livestream so if you just want to jump around until you find something interesting to watch for a few minutes, you certainly can!

Will we expect a review of the streamer's experience in the beta so far or is there a NDA permitting that? I am not 100% used to the NDAs in games so I do not know if there is a separate NDA for recording/streaming vs writing a review of the beta.

Neat! When I have a few hours I'll givee it a watch :D

Yeah it is nothing against you guys or your stream. It is just the game I wasn't interested in. Nothing against you guys.

I'd be more than happy to pen an impressions piece once I feel comfortable that I have a good handle on what the game has to offer. We wouldn't ever "review" a beta, of course, because it's not a final product. That said, after 6 hours I was really enjoying myself. I'd want to play a lot more before making any kind of judgement on the game's quality, even in this early stage. The stream should give you a rather good impression of just how the game plays and how it might compare to MMO experiences that you're used to.

Ahh, okay! I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't the 6 hour length that was detering you from checking it out :P

Well, how about next time, then, rather than just offering a rather jerkish response about paint drying, you let us know what games you would be interested in seeing? We can't read your mind, and we'd certainly like to know what everyone would enjoy watching.

But if I didn't offer a jerkish comment, I couldn't claim to be a member of The Escapist! Seriously though, I just hate MMOs, it is always the same 'ol thing. I'd be far more inclined to watch coverage of non-MMOs.

Partially to offset the somewhat rude nature of the above poster, I'd like to thank you guys for the video. The other part being that I've been looking into TES:Online and Neverwinter and debating which I want to be my new time sink (likely to be whichever lets me in before release day) and have watched most of it already.

TL:DR
Thanks :D

Thanks for the opportunity for letting me see into one of the MMO's I'm interested in Escapist. I hope that your channel gets a bit more use playing other games (Not just games coming out as well; old multiplayer games, perhaps?)

Yay, I can watch the two hours I missed at the start!
Was a really fun stream tbh. Also Bacon was awesome. Seriously, he should get his own escapist-tshirt. Bacon The Bloodthirsty Badass Wolf.

I'm only 65 seconds in, does something eventually happen?
Oh, somebody just asked who is ready to party, followed by more silence.
At least that beats the first minute.

Thank you for watching! I had a great time doing it and I'm glad you enjoyed it too!

You watched 65 seconds of a 6+ hour video and decided to comment. You, sir, are why we can't have nice things.

I was able to watch the stream only for a brief amount of time, so i didnŽt really get a feel for the game.
But i like D&D, and i really liked DDO, played it a lot. And since this game is F2P as well, odds are, IŽll be checking it out.

Y'know, I really love you guys. Escapist Staff especially. Props to you guys for doing awesome work time and time again. Also, Thank You.

Now while I''ll admit I didn't watch this, because I'm not an MMO guy, I'd readily watch mini in-office Escapist tournaments and stuff like that if it's plausible.

Seeing who is the office champion of fighting games could be a good laugh to use an example.

Or maybe I'm completely alone in this view =P

No, I watched a lot of it and enjoyed it. However, I don't think it's wrong to criticize the start of the video. 1 minute and 55 seconds of nothing but a character select screen with only one disjointed phrase of commentary does not a nice thing make. Perhaps if people were to point this out, our things will be nicer in the future.

The idea is great and i think you should do more of live stream recordings (as im unable to watch them live due to how timezones work, yay europe), though may i ask of who was participating in the commentary of the game as that is kinda determinign factor now as i have no interest for the game but i got interest for people.

Thanks for the video.
Game looks like crap.

Sorry for another question but other then this stream did you or anyone else play another character? I am curious how casters play in this game. I am sure they play like typical casters in MMOs but I was curious if they were fun or anything like that. If you didn't then that is okay.
It was a nice stream when I was able to find time to finish it.

No, we focused on just our one characters for this stream. In upcoming beta weekends we may roll a new character, so keep an eye out!

I watched the first 2 hours, it's interesting. I've never played a DnD based game before so a lot of this stuff was new to me though I guess to veterans of stuff like Baldur's gate it may seem like old news.

As for what I'd like to see on an ideal stream. Fighting games!

You guys should fight each-other or perhaps even host online lobbies where fans can get to play with you. I think that would be awesome.

Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend would be my pick, if we're going for a specific game. It's so much fun! There's also the recent PSN release of Guilty Gear Accent Core plus, that's a good one too.

Sweet I'll probably check this out although I'm confused as to how you got to level 18 I thought that level 20 was the level cap in DnD?
I popped in for a bit when the stream was live and the game reminded me quite a bit of LOTRO but I want to see the character creation options before I make any judgement.

Watched the rest of this, Bacon the wolf is like naming a cop "doughnut"...just perfect. XD

Oh and to expand upon my above suggestion. It is a recent practice within the "anime style" fighting game community to do these streaming matches. People clamor for a chance to show their play to their online friends but lack the means to produce videos themselves. You'd be allowing them to do so by handling the streaming and just inviting them to play. All they'd need is their ps3 and they're in!

It's a really great thing and I'd love to play some games with you escapist staff folks! Please consider it and if you have any questions, ask away! :)

edit:

Here's an example of such a thing, with yours truly participating;
(my matches come up around the 8:10 mark)

We even had a funny announcer...I can see Susan filling that role with lethal hilarity.
