STREAM SCHEDULE – From 12th July Onward

Hello Mid Life Crisis fans! There’s one or two of you out there, still, right? Well, we are back with a brand new, although admittedly relaxed schedule!

EVERY MONDAY – Valorant – Competitive Climb

Watch as Jamie attempts to climb the ranks in Valorant, the fps shooter oft described as “a mix of CS:GO and Overwatch” while not really being a lot like either of them. It’s a lot of fun to play and so Jamie is going to strip away that fun by going full sweat in ranked play, with a little help from some of the guys. Should be…interesting is one word.

EVERY WEDNESDAY – #Raise4Rosie Lego streams

We’re continuing our fundraising efforts for wee Rosie (if you’ve not already, read here for more info) and working our way through the Lego games. All of them. Brick by brick, folks.

PLUS…

We’re going to be a lot more impromptu streaming, working it around our various projects and that pesky thing called life. Coming up, we’ve got a return to Phasmophobia, some World of Warcraft completionism from Al and Jamie is finally going to try Final Fantasy. Honest, mister.

Basically, watch this space and we’ll do our best to entertain.

Macmillan May Marathon Madness – SCHEDULE

We’re still going! Throughout May, we’re streaming as close to 24 hours a day as we can possibly manage and it’s all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Everything will be streamed or hosted on our Twitch channel (twitch.tv/amidgamecrisis), but we’ll post individual links against scheduled streams below where they’re happening elsewhere. Go show our friends some love!

Here’s what’s happening and when:

THE BIG CHARITY PRE-SHOW! – SATURDAY MAY 9th 09:00 TO SUNDAY MAY 10th 10:00

Gamer Tagged are kicking it off early! The ever amazing Ross Pollock from Gamer Tagged is going live on stream before we even finish our showers and wolf down a slice of toast. (Editor’s note: Couldn’t find that Ace Rimmer “what a guy” gif from Red Dwarf, sorry)

TWITCH: gamer_tagged

THE MARATHON! – SATURDAY MAY 9th 10:00 TO SUNDAY MAY 10th 12:00

The Marathon Stream! 26 hours of all sorts of games which will open up with the beginning of a brand new Mid Game Crisis Minecraft realm and slowly descend into madness. Expect to see some Mount Your Friends, an intense Civilisation session and quite possibly some bizarre nonsense on Tabletop Simulator.

ALAN VS THE SNES LIVE! DONKEY KONG COUNTRY – SUNDAY MAY 10th 21:00 to 23:00 approx

Al is going to attempt to beat Donkey Kong Country in just two hours! CAUTION: Scenes of swearing, extreme rage and further swearing.

WRASSLECHAT – SUNDAY MAY 10th 23:00 to MONDAY MAY 11th 04:00 approx

WWE Money In The Bank hangout – We’re going to be watching Money In The Bank live and we invite you to join us and shoot the shit, while maybe chucking a penny or two in the pot.
Please note, we will NOT be broadcasting the Money In The Bank PPV. You’ll just be getting us on cam, talking utter crap about wrestling and having a right old laugh.

ETERNALLY DOOMED! – MONDAY MAY 11th 21:00 to 23:00

Alan is live with Doom Eternal. Watch the adventures of a beautiful unicorn charged with murdering everything that moves. It will make sense when you join the stream.
WE’RE GIVING AWAY A COUPLE COPIES OF THE GAME, TOO!

THANK YOU, NURSES – TUESDAY MAY 12th 10:00am to TUESDAY MAY 12th 12:00pm

12th May 2020 is International Nurse’s Day and marks what would have been Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday, if she had lived to be ridiculously old.

We would like to thank all the nurses working with Macmillan Cancer Support for their incredible work, as well as every nurse (and all the keyworkers) worldwide who are currently doing an amazing job under terrible circumstances during the Coronavirus pandemic. Jamie would also like to offer a personal thank you to his wife, Michelle, a nurse who is working her arse off right now.

To honour these heroes and also to give them something to keep them smiling, Jamie is hitting Two Point Hospital at 10. Come and watch as this bumbling fool makes medical emergencies ten times worse. Oh, he’ll be probably be wearing a nurses outfit…

24 HOURS IN THE APOCALYPSE – TUESDAY MAY 12th 12:00 to WEDNESDAY MAY 13th 12:00

Makka hosts the ultimate State of Decay 2 session on Super-Ultra-Jesus-Christ-We’re-Dying-Out-Here-Nightmare-Mode. This is a challenge of his own devising which includes:

NIGHTMARE ZONE
Fresh community
No Legacy Boons or Characters
No Supply Drops or Vehicle call-ins
No HUD
No Personal Markers

We are assured that this promises to be utter hell. In fact, we’re wondering why Jamie agreed to join in.

We’ll be alternating between hosting Makka (link below) and streaming Jamie’s perspective for this one. Don’t miss it, we predict rage like you have never seen.

TWITCH: RealCastCuraga

MININ’ FOR MACMILLAN! – WEDNESDAY MAY 13th 20:00 to 22:00

Jamie and Makka will be live in Macmilland, our beautiful realm, doin’ the diggin’ and the fundraisin’ and all that.

AL SOILS HIMSELF BECAUSE OF… PT AND ALIEN ISOLATION – WEDNESDAY MAY 13th 22:00 to 23:00 approx

Al has promised to make Jamie’s entire year by playing some scary games (This is the man who got scared of his own hand, once. That’s a story for the stream!) and he’s opening things up with the legendarily horrifyingly PT and when his heart can’t take that anymore, unwinding with a little Alien Isolation! Oh, this is going to be so, so good.

GIVEAWAY – One lucky viewer will snag a copy of Alien Isolation and can scare themselves silly at their leisure.

AL SOILS HIMSELF BECAUSE OF… BLAIR WITCH – THURSDAY MAY 14th 21:00 to 23:00 approx

It gets better! This one might actually break Al and we’re excited to watch it happen. We might be bad people…

GIVEAWAY – We’ll be throwing out a copy of Blair Witch for one viewer so you too can squeal like a pre-pubescent teen.

OK, I’LL PLAY MORE HATOFUL BOYFRIEND – Date to be determined

You asked, we answered. Jamie will once more test his vocal range by playing (and voicing) Hatoful Boyfriend. This time, he’s going for ALL endings, including having sex with that ghost pigeon. Yes, that’s a thing that you have just read.

GIVEAWAY – Thanks to our friends at Funimation, we’ll be giving away a code for one month of Funimation NOW during this…whatever this is.

Keep checking back as this schedule will be constantly updated.

Back once again, with the ill behaviour…

We’re back! Yes, Jamie and Alan have rebranded, relaunched, reanimated, whatever you want to call it.

Formerly Sticktwiddlers, we’re now in our mid thirties and are usually too tired to twiddle anything, so we play games instead. We miss constantly bothering the eyes and ears of the masses with our musings, so we’ve dusted off the microphones, limbered up our typing digits and we’re back, baby.

What’s coming up? Lots! Loads, even.
Being award-nominated podcasters (even it that was about seventy years ago, when podcasts were in black and white) we’re thrilled to announce the new weekly Mid Game Crisis Cast, which will be live every Tuesday night around 7pm. Plus we’ll be streaming on Twitch, knocking up some Youtube content and we may even resurrect the long lost art of writing things. Archaic, no?

Two bitter old men, rambling into a microphone and suchlike. Good stuff.
