Giving this LiveStream Thing a Shot

My LiveStream Setup
Photo-A-Day #4544

Today I decided to try out some Live Streaming. I have a lot to learn to make this a much better experience for anyone watching. I a using a software called OBS. This can do a lot of things and I got it set up so that I can play video games as well as change camera sizes. I may even grab a small HD webcam to have an additional camera angle to use when showing toys. I’ve also got to make sure that if I am doing any video game livestreaming to turn off the music from the games. I immediately got a copyright ding from Nintendo for the music from ARMS.

In my livestream I unboxed my latest Smugglers’s Bounty box. This box was themed Jedi and it contained items for Jedi like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jin, Aayla Secura, Plo Koon and Yoda. There were good items in the box although I would have liked it if they included the paper inside that details how they decided on the characters and what it took to come up with the character designs for the Funko figures.

As far as Funko figures go I found some little figures for the movie Thor Ragnarok. They are actually keychains but I take the keychain part off to have small figures. I’ll be taking them with me to LA next month for the Thor Ragnarok Press trip that I am attending. I’ve got to write up a post all about it, too.

During the livestream I also played some Legend of Zelda and show a cool little robot that we got for review. So, take a look and I promise I will figure out the whole sound thing for the extra videos and video games.

Review: LEGO® STAR WARS: The New Yoda Chronicles!

Star Wars The New Yoda Chronicles

We received a copy of the LEGO® STAR WARS: The New Yoda Chronicles! DVD to watch and review. I even did a giveaway of the DVD. With the kids starting to become more knowledgeable of Star Wars they are also becoming more excited to see more Star Wars content. I like the way that these particular chronicles are done. With the characters in the LEGO style and the jokes very referential to the movies, the cartoon series , The Clone Wars and more we get a humorous ride through a familiar landscape. I’m eager to watch the whole thing with Eva. Andrew s a little harder to get to sit and watch unless it is a show he chooses. He’s not quite there with this series yet… yet. I have a feeling that as he gets older and is exposed to more Star Wars, including all the LEGO sets that I have in the basement ready for the kids to unbox and play with (when they are a little older) then Andrew is going to love this series and enjoy the fun of it.

For now he can enjoy the Coloring Activity Pages and some of the humor. But later, he’s certainly going to enjoy it like the rest of the family. Continue reading Review: LEGO® STAR WARS: The New Yoda Chronicles!
