Shenmue Stream Ideas
« on: September 28, 2014, 12:08:18 AM »
I'm wanting to stream Shenmue again. But I don't just want to do a standard "I'm gonna play this game, and you guys can watch" thing. I'm trying to come up with ideas to make it unique. If you guys can suggest anything to help, I would be most appreciative.

A cool thing would be like "The Shenmue Games" or "Hazuki Game Night" where 4 streamers can create a faux co-op event/competition with all the games in Shenmue 1 or 2 once a month or twice a month and we can use part 1 for the 1st event of the month and part 2 for the 2nd event.

I doubt there is a way to do a simul-stream where the 4 channels are on 1 page. If it is possible, that would be the  best way to do it.

The other way would be opening each streamer on a new tab. There would be the 4 contestants and the host/score keeper.

The host would also use a new thread here for tallying, that way everything is easy to follow instead of tracking 4 chat boxes.

Sonth3 host can randomly assign a number and that would be the order the contestants would play each game in...and then the viewers could open each twitch page tab in that order too.

Each game will award you with points based on your score/placing
1st 3pts
2nd 2pts
3rd 1pt
4th 0pts

Each game would also consist of 1 attempt so lets say gane 1 is darts, player 1 goes and plays 1 set (no free bonus rounds) the host records the score and then we all switch to the player 2 stream and watch him play, then 3 and then player 4.

Points are awarded and then we move to another game like QTE, then a round of hang on... the host can also raffle the games too by only picking 4 from a hat.

Then at the end you can get a fake prize. Ever watch @midnight?  The winner just wins the Internet. So in part 1 we say "congratulations,  you won the dragon mirror" and the Phoenix mirror for part 2's ngame night. And if possible, Yen could be awarded. Last place would get 1 post worth of yen, 3rd places 2 post worth,  2nd place 3 post worth and 1st place would get 4 post worth of yen.

Good stuff, Son Ala! I'm sure there's a way to do a 4 way simulcast. That would be pretty fun shit right there.

You know how we have the capsule collection and yen, there could be a new prize category that adds the mirrors amd the prize medals from shenmue 2. So instead of a yen reward we can have a prize claim where the points from thengame night can be saved up in order to purchase the mirrors and medals
