Custom twitch emotes

It’s happening! We’re popular enough for twitch to give us our own emotes!



Okay, for real. There’s an extension for Firefox (and some other browser that spies on you) called FrankerFaceZ that lets you add your own shitty emoticons to a channel. So, submit your emoticons and ideas in a comment in this post, and I will send them in.

If possible, refer to the guidelines on the website I linked. But if you’re lazy, just link whatever images and I’ll make them into emotes.

Love, Cats

PS: New Max Overdrive Supreme Sunset Showdown Extreme not soon at all. I have a lot of work to do. When I eventually do film the episode, it’ll be good, though!

PPS: If you send me a single message about wordfilters on Steam I will block you forever. Not even joking. You must appeal to the powers that govern this world.

Max Overdrive Extreme Sunset Showdown Extreme Pilot

If you missed the recording, you should definitely watch it on Gather Your Party! (now with sound effects).
I will announce the date and time of the next recording on this blog.

In the meantime, you can apply to be a question-wrangler by sending an email to Be wary, if you want to wrangle questions for the show you won’t be allowed to compete in it. Questions should mostly be videogame related and funny whenever possible.

There will be a wait before the next episode because I will likely be adjusting the formula\rules and fixing bugs with the software. I’ll see you on the flipsiiiiiideeeeee.

Pilot for a live gameshow airs this wednesday at 6PM

That’s 6PM GMT – if you’re in freedom land it’ll probably be like 10AM if you’re on the EAST coast and more like 1PM if you’re on the WEST (thanks md).

Anyway, live gameshow? Well… yes. GWA made me realize the demand we have for good original content that isn’t just video game streams, so I’m testing out a format. If you’re online and on GLA in the preceding 30 minutes, I’ll be asking for volunteers – and yes, there will be prizes! Shit ones.

The gameshow is sort of like what Mario Party would be if it were designed by a schizophrenic with a head full of videogame trivia and MS paint. It features questions, showdowns, sirens, explosions, pulse-pounding action and conundrums that will dumbfound even the smartest of alecs.

Enough talking. Here’s a tantilizing taste of what’s to come…


See you there.

Love, Cats
