STREAM SCHEDULE!

STREAM SCHEDULE!

We figured it was high time we laid out what we’re doing and when, so here’s our proposed stream schedule for the forseeable future. There’ll be random streams in between and we may well need a night off now and then to deal with “real life” but 90% of the time, this is what we’ll be up to.

MACABRE MONDAYS – Every Monday at 8pm

Jamie makes an absolute arse of criminal investigation as he steps into shoes of some of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Nancy Drew, if they’re in a poorly made game with a ludicrous plot, you can bet we’re going to stream it.

You can catch up on previous Macabre Mondays by checking out our Macabre Mondays Stream Highlights playlist.

TWOSDAY! On a Wednesday. – Every Wednesday at 8pm

Alan and Jamie continue their endless search for the co-op game that will finally make them decide that this friendship has just about run it’s course. This series used to be on a Tuesday and that pun name was glorious.

Each stream will be uploaded to Youtube, in it’s entirety, shortly after it ends. You’ll find them all in the Twosday (On A Wednesday) playlist.

WE AINT AFRAID OF NO GHOST! – Every Thursday at 8pm

Thursday is Mythic raid night for Alan and the guildies, so while he’s safely tucked away in a pile of spreadsheets and discarded coffee cups, it’s time for spook hunting shenanigans! Join Jamie and friends for Phasmophobia every Thursday night.

MID GAME CRISIS AND CHILL – THE STREAM – Saturdays, late

Our flagship chat show will be going live on Saturday nights so join Alan and Jamie for some relaxed nattering. Our two crabby old geezers chat about whatever springs to mind while playing whatever tickles their fancy. Political discourse one moment, health benefits of masturbation the next and at some point, they’ll probably even talk about video games. This is basically the live version of our podcast. Oh, did we not mention that?

MID GAME CRISIS AND CHILL – THE PODCAST

YES! We’re finally going back to our old flame, audio entertainment. We’re recording our first episode very soon and will have a release day for within the next week. Watch this space! Or listen to it, at least.

As well as all that good shit, you can expect word on new Youtube series, one off streams and written content in the next few weeks.

"World Record Attempt" over a World of Warcraft title screen

WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT: Longest World of Warcraft Stream! (and it’s for charity, too!)

We’re doing it.

We’ve been planning this for the past couple of weeks. We’ve set the dates, we’ve checked our subscriptions, we’ve bought really good coffee and a wee bag of doughnuts. Folks, we’re going for a record.

To round out our month of fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support, we’re going to attempt a truly mammoth streaming session and have a crack at beating the world record for longest World of Warcraft stream. Currently, the official record stands at 32 hours and 36 minutes. Pfft, child’s play.

Starting at 09:30am on Friday May 29th, Alan and Jamie will attempt to stream for at least 33 hours, under official World Record attempt rules. The livestream VOD will be submitted for consideration to the good folk at Guinness World Records and hopefully we’ll be able to leverage our new found fame in order to raise a butt-tonne of cash for cancer support.

Throughout this two day streaming event, we’ll be starting brand new characters and taking them through from scratch. We’re randomise faction, race and class and will go for a mix of questing, dungeons and raids and exploration.

During the record attempt, we’ll have a pile of giveaways and some really fun audience participation, so get active in the chat for fun and freebies!

I cannot stress enough just how important this is to all of us. Macmillan Cancer Support does incredible work and right now this is a very personal issue, so please give if you can (click here to head to our Game Heroes page) and share the ever-lovin’ crap out of these posts. Any and all support is greatly appreciated.

Well, wish us luck!

Macmillan May Marathon Madness – Details

Macmillan May Marathon Madness – Details

Hi there. Thank you for your interest in our ridiculous fund-raising scheme for Macmillan Game Heroes.
You’re here to find out what’s going on and how you can help, right?

EH?! WHAT’S HAPPENING? WHO ARE YOU!?

It all started with a simple idea. A 24 hour marathon streaming session for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Then it became 26 hours. If a marathon is 26 miles, a marathon stream should be 26 hours, right?
Then it got silly.

Now, we’re trying to stream for as much of May as we possibly can, across multiple channels, with gaming, hangouts and lord knows what else. It’s an evolving perma-stream which will hopefully bring people a little joy and in return, they’ll help us raise a little cash.

HUH. OK, WHEN’S THIS ALL HAPPENING, THEN?

There’s so much going on, we had to put it in a seperate post!

You can check the full, constantly evolving schedule right here.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?!

Really? I mean, it’s for charity, dude. Jeez. Well, let’s see what we can tempt you with, shall we? How about a giveaway? In fact, how about a buttload of giveaways?

The wonderful team at Insert Coin clothing have provided us with a 20% discount code for everyone who views the stream, as well as three vouchers which will be given away during the course of our fundraising efforts. Check out their range online, it’s absolutely gorgeous stuff. I need all those pins…

We’ve got a £20 online gift voucher for Bleading Marvellous, thanks to the awesome Dan! Folks, check out their online store, they’ve got some amazing horror and geek goodies. Be sure to follow them on Facebook, too!

The super talented Ben Cameron has donated a three month subscription to Pin Badge Club. I just signed up to this one myself and it’s absolutely brilliant. Drop Ben a follow on Twitter and thank him for us, he’s an absolute gem!

Thanks to our lovely pals at Bethesda UK, we’ll have DOOM codes to giveaway! Drop them a follow on Twitter and say thank you!

You like awesome t-shirts? Yeah you do! The good people at Qwertee have given us three codes to giveaway, each of which can be redeemed for a t-shirt of the winner’s choice!

Ross from Gamer Tagged (and Creative Ramble, your soon to be favourite podcast) is not only streaming for us tomorrow, he’s got a couple of PSN gift cards to give away. What’s more, he’s given us a couple too, along with a Steam code for Doom PC. Ross, you are the stuff of legend sir. Follow him on Twitter and tell him he’s gorgeous, will you?

Many thanks to our lovely friends at Funimation UK who have given us a free month code for Funimation Now to give to one lucky winner! They’re awesome, check them out on Facebook and Twitter and tell them you love them.

More to come, keep checking in.

AND YOU’RE DOING ALL THIS FOR CHARITY?

Absolutely. There are links below to the justgiving pages, plus every sub to AMidGameCrisis on Twitch throughout may will be donated to the cause.

WHAT’S THIS I HEAR ABOUT YOU COLLECTING ON PAYPAL, THEN?

Ah, that. That’s a separate thing but you’ll probably hear it mentioned from time to time, so i’ll explain.

We’re doing all of this because it’s a good cause and we’ve all had people in our lives who have been affected by cancer, but what really spurred us on was the recent diagnosis of a very dear friend. In a bid to cheer him up and support him, we started a Paypal fund to throw some pressies his way and cover any costs he might have, should need arise. That’s something we did between friends and family and it’s not something we’re expecting any of you to throw into.

That being said, there will be people tuning in who know who we’re talking about and would like to support him, or who are just very generous and kind-hearted and so we’ll be popping the link to the Paypal below. Every penny we collect in there will be used to support our friend and his family during a difficult time and anything left will be donated to Macmillan, so that’s all good and lovely. Got it?

RIGHT, I’M CONVINCED. SHOW ME THE LINKS AND STUFF.

Yes! Glad you’re aboard. OK, here’s where to go to watch the streams:

YOU DONE?

Not quite.

We’d like to thank a few people, if we may.

Thank you to Sold Out Entertainment for giving us the two review copies of Zombie Army 4 for our spooky streaming session, it’s very much appreciated and bound to bring in those essential viewers!

Thanks to The Attitude Era Podcast for a lovely shoutout, we’re big fans and it was great of you to share our efforts with your following.

In fact, thank you to EVERYONE who’s shared, retweeted, liked and generally just spread the word. Whether you have 10 followers or 10,000, it’s the same to us. Sharing equals potential new eyes for the stream, which equals potential donations. So, thank you so very much.

NOW YOU’RE DONE?

Almost! We still need some help, folks. If you would like to join in by streaming a couple hours so we can take a break or perhaps you’d like to host us on your channels to get out to a wider audience, maybe you’ve even got something you’d like to chuck into the giveaway pile? Please drop me an email at jamie@midgamecrisis.co.uk, any time, day or night. I won’t be asleep, obviously…

OK, GOODB-

Also, be sure to follow us on Twitter and check us out on Facebook for updates.

OK JEEZ BYE.

Thanks. Love you.
