As i said before i tend to stick with Youtube as i have enough content there to keep me occupied and if i watch any Twitch content it's usually VODs or Clips on their youtube archives. I've been following VShojo and some of the others that 「Echo」 mentions like that for the last few years. I rarely watch Twitch, most of the time i just watch a different 'Tuber or a VOD if there's a scheduled Twitch stream.

I suppose i should look into the Twitch Prime free sub as i've been a Prime member for years but i don't think i've ever used it. Same with the free Prime games. I keep forgetting about them.

I have a ton of youtube subscriptions but only 3 memberships AZKi, Sana and Amiya from Tsunderia. When Pina finally gets her Membership i'll join her too. Although, I have been thinking of having a "floating" membership fund where i join and cancel Membership to a different VTuber each month but i'm not sure about that. Aside from that if i were to membership a 5th/6th Youtuber it would be someone with an EU friendly streaming time like Kiara. I don't have many other monthly subs which is why i don't mind subbing to some channels.

I watch so much Youtube that Youtube Premium would actually be worth it if it gives positive benefits to the streamers i watch. hmmm.

I haven't watched KSON regularly in a couple of weeks. Does she still have the hardcoded machine translation TTS overlay? It was one reason i started to drift away as i found it distracting and an absolute train wreck of a translation so i would wait for clips as i couldn't hide it.

I prefer watching on youtube over twitch by far, I find twitch a pain for vods (plus the twitch app in my TV doesn't even allow to watch vods at all)...

On another note, Pekora's new 3D model is a huge improvement over her previous one, her expressions always felt kinda off to me in her previous 3D model.

Nina is playing Project Zomboid, if she's half as entertaining as Pipkin Pippa in Phase Connect then we're in for a treat.



Ha, she wants to play "Luck be a landlord" too. lol.
Next up is Warcraft 2 or Red Alert, ooooh.


I love these Pippa vids her expressions are priceless.


The RP stream is something else especially the ending. wow, funny as heck.


Sumi's ASMR stream yesterday was a wild ride. Started out as expected just chatting about things and how our day went etc then she started reminiscing, told some family stories, we got onto myspace and seananners/nyanners discussion then someone in chat made a joke about sliding into DMs which ended up with chat asking a cryptobro to clear his twitter handle so we could use it, then a discord RP between the guy in chat and Sumi via all sorts of tangents. ASMR went out the window pretty early on. Sumi realised the stream would get archived pretty damned quickly because she was singing and humming a song during it. Luckily YTArchive to the rescue.

edit: Wow, Sumi has opened a twitter Space and is chatting with us. I'm not logged in so i'm just listening as a guest but wow. It's mad. I think she's going to miss streaming and chatting with us, bless.

Ina, Sana, Bae, Kronii Monster Hunter Rise PC stream tonight - Midnight GMT
I wonder if Ina Ross will transfer from Switch? Do you start again or is your avatar held online?
I bought MHR on Switch and then never played it. I even have some NFC cards for it too.



... and some Ina being adorable.

Looks like Holomems has got that ARK fever again. :flare_nekomimi:

Unfortunately, not unlike Pokemon, I don't care much for ARK either. It's good for falling asleep at the very least since I had trouble sleeping lately due to the hot weather. :flare_lmao:

An ARK expansion map came out 1 month ago, I guess they're playing because of that.
I'm not interested in ARK either, but there's still members playing a variety of games.

Yeah, i did mention the other day that i wonder if some of the Holomems will be playing with KSON off-stream.
I assume there's a new expansion out? Yura from PRISM has been playing it too.

edit: ahh, there we go, ezodagrom answered already.

Yura plays on kson's server too so she sometimes can drag ryugon and pikamee to play even though not particularly collabs. I watch all the pikamee ARK streams but wish they'd be more spaced out over the past month or two especially since it was the holidays. Ryugon literally played 40+ hours of it in one go over the new year's week with some collab with Pika/kson. Now more people are playing it, lol.

In addition to all the Kimono's, there's going to be a charity Mario Kart stream this weekend featuring 26 indie vtubers - most who I've never heard of... Note: date is wrong in the video and its happening on the 16th.

MilkyQueen has been doing this for ages and was the VTuber that Calli realy likes and they did a karaoke collab with in august.
Obake PAM i know, she's fun and a little unhinged. Sings really well and plays flute.
Aka is Obake PAM's colleague and is pretty good.
Girl_DM - i know from some collabs with Phase Connect and Obake PAM and some other things that i can't remember at the moment.
Merrydawg and LumiTuber i've seen a few times and they've done collabs. Merrydawg is behind the Merryweather art stuff but i'm not really familiar tbh.

The rest i have probably seen in big indie collabs but they don't come to mind. There's a group of about 30-40 indie or small agency vtubers that have a sort of collab group going on and there's a bunch that collab together more than others but they regularly get together in mega collabs like this. It's great to see tbh.

Should be a good lively tournament.

There's a TON going on this weekend! Sheesh.

Ryugon got his adsense mail, finally, his money has been stuck with google since his debut so he's been living on his savings.

Monster Hunter World...


Also after seeing Holo Fightz in her intro & background it seems like Haachama has got in touch with the Holofightz people or is using their models and customizations. I think they may have made them public, i can't remember and i haven't watched for a few weeks.

No but Sumi's guerilla Twitter Space meetup yesterday sounded compressed and clipped too. It's heavily dependant on people's hardware and connection i suppose. I imagine they've dropped the quality for bandwidth and battery reasons too as it's limited on PCs and only fully featured on phones at the moment isn't it?

I don't have twitter open or many followers setup so i'll miss all these Spaces meets. Not that it matters as i can't speak or understand japanese anyway.

Youtube definitely has better VoD but I think I like Twitch better for live. Easier interactions and rewards. In the end though, there are streamers I enjoy on both so I'll continue to use both as needed. Just maybe give live priority to Twitch, because Twitch VoD sucks a bit.

With regards also to some of the talk from before, I didn't realize Pikamee was on Youtube first than switch to Twitch and splits the fanbase like that. (Especially memberships.) ... Yeah that is a tough one for sure. I can see why folks would be feeling uncomfy with it. And with Kson splitting across 3, that sounds even worse.

I thought we reached peak Vtuber comedy when Selen played Dead Space. But no. Here I am catching Selen on FEAR and my god. Somehow it is nonstop laughter all over again. Selen " F*ck you! now I'll have to think of the Grudge before bed again" Tatsuki.

She cured my tummyache. :fingergunsblob:

You should watch her Phasmo stream too. She said she'd play Phasmo if she got an akasupa. BIG MISTAKE.

Calli said that the pokemon permissions are ending soon so anyone sick of that game, you're in luck.
(Of course, this comes just before Arceus releases and they'll probably have new permissions for that.)

Sounds like some people were having a whinge at Calli?
Meh, I don't see the point, just go watch something else they'll move on to new games every few weeks anyway.
Case in point. I think Sana and Ina will be playing the hell out of Monster Hunter Rise on PC for a while after their collab with Bae & Kronii last night.


Kronii teaching Kiara Korean later on.




Might install this for Skyrim tonight for a laugh.

oh, they have a bunch of Hololive "Themed" spells. Nothing major but fun additions for a spell caster i suppose.

Wanna touch on some more various things later in this thread... But before it leaves my brain I'll get this one out quickly.

Selen is on Twitch right now, blowing off some steam after her Apex tourny. (It was stressful and didn't go well, she was really down.)
But she is doing ok now and having fun. Uhm, Twitch folks asked her about "Emotes when" and she mentioned after she crashes Mysta's Apex stream tomorrow (he will be on YT, but Selen will do her PoV on Twitch) she will be applying for Partnership on Twitch and is telling her users to ready their subs/Twitch prime.

So I wonder if she too will be doing some more Twitch activity... Afaik, her Twitch activity until this point has mostly been guerilla Apex stuff.

I saw her Youtube post about being unhappy with her performance and deleting the VOD if the community wanted her to.
Cheer up, Selen. Everyone has their off days and you'll bounce back in no time.

As for Twitch, it wouldn't surprise me if she doesn't stream there more often. Quite a few Youtube streamers are spreading out to Twitch and vice-versa.
If your agency is fine with it, why not? They have a different focus and a different chat culture so why not experience both?
Some followers will watch both and some will stay on Youtube/Twitch and some will mix and match as they are able to.

Yeah, despite my complaining about twitch, branching out to twitch is actually really good for them:

  • Different audience that otherwise wouldn't have watched them on youtube
  • Slightly different culture, you can tell from streamers getting more views with reaction videos/chitchat on twitch over youtube
  • Old fans will follow them no matter they go, and double dipping
  • More exposure (I keep seeing countless people just saying "wow you stream here?" on twitch, so they are doing a good job leading people to watch them, then there's also raids)
  • Features like gift subs, people spend a lot on twitch because they now have somewhere to waste spend their money on to show support and also to give to the community, while Youtube is just stupid stickers and super chat
  • Chat being a clutterfuck actually means they can be more detached and just do whatever they want, without feeling like they are really dealing with the same people all the time

Ah man, watching people play Skyrim always makes me wanna go play it again too. But then I remember how long it would take to set up all the mods again and usually that's enough for me to nope out again lol. I already gave that game a thousand or so hours across various platforms... But still, the allure is always there.

==================


This is the kinda thing that makes me facepalm about how uptight Youtube/Cover is... Other streamers get away with wayyy worse... 😓

Tomorrow is Kroniimono and I can't wait to see another Wada Arco design. I'm gonna set my alarm even!! (And hopefully get to bed soonish here lol)

=======



Yoclesh is a cute Oni who does mostly Art streams, with a lot of chill vibes and impromptu karaoke since she always has music going and sings along or hums when she isn't chatting/interacting with chat. Well today she straight up shifted to karaoke for a little bit lol.

recommend if you on twitch with some time to kill and lookin' for some chill time and super nice community.

I went back over Christmas because Special Edition (SE) & Anniversary Edition (AE) were on sale and i haven't played it for years.
For the most part modding AE is super simple now and many mods are compatible or have been ported. There was even a new app released on Nexus a day ago that manages rollback of AE to SE if your modlist isn't compatible.

Once i manually installed SKSE I used a mod to control which Creative Club content i wanted and that was going to be it.
Then Dummyy contacted me and it spiraled from there , ha.
I made a copy of my Steam Skyrim install and point Mod Organiser 2 & LOOT at it to manage the rest of my super simple mods.
I use SkyUI, KVite Simple Start as they don't need USSEP and are great QOL mods. Now i've installed RaceMenu a preset face and some standalone follower characters. I'm thinking of trying some lighting mods too but i'm not sure which version i need so i just play the game now.

Wabbajack looks to be the tool people are using to install and organise HUGE modlist packages.

On Topic erm... Silvervale from VShojo has a Modlist Google Doc on her Skyrim page with over 700 mods on it. Luckily they're organised into categories too so you can easily pick and choose what you want. Top right button on this page:




This may be handy for some of you too. Lux ( previously Annie ) is a downloader for billibilli.
People use it alongside yt-dlp, ytarchive, ffmpeg, aria2c, JDownloader2 and Chat_Downloader (Python app/script) so they can cover most services.

edit: "Small Indie Company" Youtube seems to have changed stuff again as i've started to get "Live Event not available" messages on youtube embeds but when i refresh it shows up as usual. Someone give them some money, they're obviously struggling.


From what i've seen in discord chats everyone fully expects Haachama and Marine to get bonked for this episode of H-Art Contest.

Oh lord, Non continues to be "built different" and Naki too. They are having a watchalong... yeah. I'll leave the description here.
It's on Naki's channel because Non is still on Super-Secret Probation after being bonked by susan last week for reading some spicy Shrek FanFic on stream.
We're watching Bible Black (English Dub), Master Piece the Animation and maybe Rance! Let's do our homework together!!

Non, Naki, Finana & Marine Ban RTA collab when? lol. Add Obake PAM to the list as well as she reads BL VNs and Collar x Malice on stream too. Then get Reiny involved to make sure that ALL Seiso was extinguished.

They just mentioned this site - Hololive Fan Games Database.

Now i'm finishing Selen's FEAR playthrough.

Earlier Veibae went through her unban requests on stream, and whoosh. What an eye-opener that was. The amount of toxicity hurled at these girls... 😓

Whether you are tired of King covers or not, Enna's is worth a listen, she is such a good singer
