What is Hellion and Why am I Excited?

What is Hellion and Why am I Excited?

It’s no secret to my viewers that I am a fan of space games. It is also no secret that I am a fan of survival games. So when someone tells me there is a space survival game coming out Soon™, my ears perk up. And, being a fan and backer of Star Citizen, when they tell me the release has been delayed, I sigh knowingly. I’m not sure when Hellion’s first tentative Early Access release date was, but I know the latest one that it missed was January. This caused me some consternation as I had been relying on […]

The Outsider: Lessons from Twitch.TV

Do you ever feel like an outsider simply observing from the sidelines? I’m sure everyone has felt like that at some point in their life. For me, it’s a constant. I have a tendency to observe, but rarely have the confidence or drive to join in. Part of it is from a general lack of desire to join in—I do better on my own. But another part of me desperately wants to be a part of something but is way too anxious. A year and a half ago, that changed. I had been encouraged to start streaming videogames on a […]

How Star Citizen made me love graphic design again.

“Have you ever heard of Twitch?” We were sitting in the dark just talking.  This was December 2014, and while it was still early, the sun had already gone down.  The room was starting to get cold.  And we were talking yet again about Star Citizen. It seemed like he’d been talking about Star Citizen for as long as I’d known him.  We were both fellow gamers and writers, and he was just as excited about the lore as the gameplay.  I’d heard about the game before because of it’s unique funding efforts, but I was more concerned about playing […]

The first question you need to be asking yourself is, “Why do I want to stream my writing process on Twitch?” Hopefully, I can give you an answer. But, before I do, let me explain a little about myself and why I’m writing this in the first place. My name on Twitch is ErikMcKetten. I have been streaming games for almost two years now, mostly a little independent game called “Star Citizen.” You may have heard […]

Editorial: Star Citizen, Streaming, and PTSD

Yesterday, October 16, 2016, marked a thirteen year anniversary which, in spite of my best intentions, I vividly recall each and every year. On October 16th, 2003 in Karbala, Iraq, three members of my first United States Army unit were killed in action. Their names were Corporal Sean Grilley, Staff Sergeant Joseph Bellavia, and Lieutenant Colonel Kim Orlando. These wasn’t the first deaths in Iraq I faced, nor would they be the last. But it was a turning point for me as a human being and a soldier. Colonel Orlando, despite his rank and the fact that he was my […]
