Twitch Streamer Series- Part 8

Twitch Streamer Series- Part 8

Another fun guy has said yes to being in my blog. I am so happy that these streamers are allowing me to interview them and then blogging about them.
 

  1. What is your Twitch name?                                                                                                                     My twitch name is NOVAlyzr
  2. Is there a special reason you chose that name?                                                                                   When I created my name, I wanted it to be something that I could search on Google and get 0 results on. I wanted a name that I could grow from the ground up and make it my own. The word itself doesn’t mean anything, it’s just a combination of the word ‘nova’ and ‘analyzer’ smashed together to form NOVAlyzr. Now every time I google my name, I can see how my new persona has developed online.
  3. Why did you become a Twitch Streamer?                                                                                                 I became a streamer because I was a huge fan of YouTubers. I’ve always wanted to try to make my own YouTube videos and see if people would like them. I finally started stream during the summer when I was between classes as a challenge to myself to see how far I could go. I wanted to grow something from nothing, as well as finally putting myself out there and trying something I’ve always wanted to do.
  4. Why did you choose to stream for Twitch?                                                                                              I joined twitch because in my opinion I found it easier than YouTube. Originally, I had planned to start on YouTube but I was also always putting myself off from it. I wasn’t very confident in my video editing skills and still wasn’t sure of what my videos were going to be about. What really got me connected to twitch was a YouTube channel called Wanderbots. During the summer, I found his Let’s Play of Dragon Quest Builders and even though I would never get the chance of playing the game (I don’t own a ps4) I still loved every one of his videos. When I finally got caught up on his series I ended up looking through his bio to learn a little more about him and found he had a twitch channel. At the time, I knew little to nothing about what twitch was other than people live streaming games. Browsing through his profile I was surprised to see he had multiple 8-hour video recordings of Dragon Quest Builders that have not even been posted to YouTube yet. I spent the next 2 days watching the recordings until I saw it all. The 2 days after that I started focusing on my own Twitch channel. If I could watch someone streaming for 8 hours straight with no video editing and just playing random game then I could do the same thing. I had all the basic things for any stream: OBS, Webcam, Mic, and computer. All I needed to do now was start.
  5. How long have you been a streamer?                                                                                                     I have been streaming on twitch for 10 months.
  6. Do you only stream or do you have another job? If you are comfortable in telling my readers, what is your other job?                                                                                                             I’m currently not working. I focus on twitch as a hobby as I go through college full-time.
  7. What are your favorite games to play?                                                                                                    My favorite game to play right now are Zelda: BotW, Splatoon 2, Overwatch, any Pokémon games, and Minecraft.
  8. What are your favorite games to stream?                                                                                              My favorite games to stream are OSU, Jackbox, Astroneer, Overwatch, and Minecraft.
  9. Do you have any games that you would like to recommend to my readers to play and why?                                                                                                                                                            I’d recommend the first two games I started my stream with: Don’t Starve and Stardew Valley. These games are great for low standard computers and laptops that don’t require a whole lot to run and supply endless hours of fun and challenges for players.
  10. Was it hard to talk to your viewers when you first became a streamer? How long before you became at ease with streaming?                                                                                            It’s been a long while since then but I don’t think it was difficult for me to talk to my viewers, I was a little bit nervous at the beginning for sure but the hardest part of starting out was trying to fill in the empty noise of just me playing a game. Doing commentary to only yourself at the start was a weird learning curve. I felt like it started getting easy for me after 4 months for sure. It took time and I really had to put myself out there to show people what I could do.
  11. Would you like to tell my readers anything else about yourself or your channel on Twitch?                                                                                                                                                          Hi! My name is NOVAlyzr! I am 21 yrs old. I love anime, terrible gamer, favorite color is red, currently juggling streaming with college but I still manage to fit streaming in every week! If anyone stops into my stream I hope you enjoy!

His streams are always fun to chat in or lurk if that is more your thing. Look him up at twitch.tv/novalyzr.
