Thanks dude. To be brutally honest, I am not a confident person in general, and I certainly don't like how I sound on camera. If I said I was looking forward to next Saturday I would be lying. I am more nervous and I've said from the beginning that if anyone felt they could do a better job, or feel more comfortable doing a Dojo Twitch then by all means, take the mantle. This has been an idea which has been kicked about for over a year and no one has took the initiative, so I felt I had a responsibility to do so.
I have no desire to be an Internet personality, nor do I desire any sort of ego boost. All of this is purely for Shenmue, and that's what keeps my motivation going. Theres no promotion to any side channel ive got going on, nor will i be playing random games outside of the Shenmue franchise. All of these sleepless nights working on the design, the logistics etc, is simply so that Shenmue has a permanent and regular presence on what is currently the 4th busiest site on the Internet today. Shenmue needs to be on Twitch pure and simple.
With that said, I will be giving this my all, to be entertaining and watchable to any viewer. I say entertaining, I should probably say more energetic, I mean I am not going to be juggling balls or making immature jokes for cheap laughs. I just want a regular stream where all Shenmue fans can be welcomed open arms, and spend a couple of hours together on a new venture. Have a laugh in chat, make new friends, but all at the same time as promoting Shenmue, and getting it out there. To help this, I couldn't think of a more perfect day to go live with it.
It's not going to be a cheap tacky stream with me sitting with poor lighting coming through a window, I have did numerous tests with different lights, and no expense spared on the video and audio hardware. I've aimed for a level of professionalism all to hope the viewing figures are high and that Shenmue on Twitch can reach further and further over the next year in the run up to Shenmue 3. I don't want this to be a success for my own personal gain, I only want this to be successful for Shenmue.
