Bother’s Bar Doesn’t Play Badly

By | July 13, 2019

No vid this weekend as I’m contractually obliged to work. However, if I can get six people together this Thursday night, 9-10pm, for a voyage through time then there’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. You may need Discord (since Google Hangouts is shutting in a few months, I need to start seriously exploring alternatives for this sort of thing). If you’re interested, please let me know (preferably below as I might forget you on Twitter). If I get fewer than six there are a few options for things to do instead.

    Sure, I’ll throw my hat in the ring as well. Haven’t done something with you for a while now.

          RTBF is French speaking Belgium.

          Here they do L’eredita:

            I see they’ve taken the Italian show as the base. They were trying to sell the Guillotine endgame as a separate format at one point, which is a bit hopeful.

    Tempting, especially since I think I know what this is going to be, but I’ll still be finishing up work at that time x_x

    I haven’t used Google Hangouts in almost two and a half years so I can hardly complain, but I’m still a bit sad to hear it’ll be closing down.

    I hear Discord mentioned a lot on Twitch streams but still don’t really ‘get’ it.

      It’s very useful for live chat and screen sharing, as long as I can capture the visual output from the game and the chat (which should be very doable with XSplit) I can stream that way. What I’m hoping to do on Thursday is a pre-record.

      I can now EXCLUSIVELY reveal that the hope is to do Every Second Counts on the Spectrum.

    I will tweet successful candidates tomorrow afternoon, so if you want in now’s the time to let me know – preferably here or by Twitter DM as I’ll probably forget if you just reply on Twitter generally.

    It would help if we were Discord friends, I’m BrigBother #9399. Anything might happen!

    Would there be any point in there being a permanent Bother’s Bar Discord server for inconsequential, ephemeral community vaguely-game-show-related jibber-jabber, or would that be a terrible idea?

    For instance, I have just found a tune in a video game that sounds like a cross between the RPG tune that it is and (if you choose to hear it) the much-loved theme tune from The Moment Of Truth: here.

      There already is one! But I don’t really venture on it much. I’m perfectly happy for people to post ephemerial stuff here.

    I’ve not been sure I could make it today; it’s late notice, but I think I can now if you’re still angling for another.
