Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

Announcing: half-assed e3 coverage from the GLA

CFTgluoUEAAB23g.png large

Ah piss, it’s E3 again. Rats, I thought I was going to get off scott-free this time.

Here are the times. It’s the usual setup, I’ll switch the channel over to GLAAD and re-streaming them, this time I have a good internet connection too.

I will not be able to re-stream the PC Gaming, Bethesda or Sony events, someone else will have to do those. The timing might also be a bit dicey on the Nintendo event, even if I leave work early. It’s GLAAD, so remember, you’re stuck with Procaster, unless you can work some kind of magic, and get Livestream to accept Xsplit or OBS.

As per usual, there will be mumbleful discussion of events. I’m not sure whether this will be in GLA or GYP’s mumble, or whether GYP will be there, or whether GYP exists. I’ll work it out at some point. Some people want to be able to commentate MST3K style (talking during the conferences). I’m not 100% on this, so I made a poll. Please answer it.

Impromptu podcast recording: 7PM BST, 3rd of June

Yes, 7PM BSt. That’s 8PM eurotime, 2PM New York time, 11AM San Fransisco time. Turn up if you can. If we don’t get enough people, I will reschedule it, but if so, it will have to be either delayed until the 13th, or recorded sans Catsman this weekend. My preference would be for the latter, although I do have the live podcast to tide things over.

That’s all for now, but tune into this blog all month, when I’ll be doing literally nothing to celebrate the GLA’s 5th birthday.

Twitch bans AO rated games

Here is a link to a list of games currently banned for streaming by twitch. Please read it and understand it.

I believe that Twitch have instituted this ban because they want a roundabout way of banning the game ‘Hatred’ without addressing the issue directly. However, Hatred’s ‘AO’ rating is unofficial and self-inflicted.

Nevertheless, you should not stream Hatred on the main channel. These are twitch’s bullshit rules, and if we don’t want to play by them, we can just quit leeching bandwidth, pack up, and go do something worthwhile with our lives. I’m sure none of you want that to happen, however. If you need login information for GLA After Dark, hit me up on Steam or by email ( or find someone who knows the login details for that channel.
