I’m not a big fan of livestreaming. I get why it’s popular: people gravitate to magnetic gaming personalities the same way they gravitate toward likable television talking heads. Personally, though, I’ll just play games myself rather than watch — and listen to — other people play them.
While developer livestreaming is a different beast, I don’t care for it, either, mainly because it forces me to sit through an hour’s worth of awkwardness in order to hear the one piece of info that interests me. I prefer developer blogs, diaries, patch notes, and forum posts because they don’t waste as much of my time!
