He's finishing up on Binding of Isaac. I already talked to him

I sent him a PM, but I haven't gotten a response. If anything, I've got someone who's interested in standing in for him

Janus, we really need you around. We couldn't get a fourth last night. :/

Things have been really busy on this end, I'm sorry guys.  Not sure when things'll clear up!

Well, it doesn't look like four-player streaming will be happening in the near future, but that doesn't rule out two-player games/speedruns or single-player runs. Mach, do you run the official GU Twitch.tv account? Perhaps we could establish a group of designated streamers for those with the hardware and know-how. Then all that's left is coordinating desired runs, setting up schedules, and advertising (tell your frens).

Yeah, I have all the information for it, and I am willing to give it out to any current respectable member of GU for the beginning, such as you, moderators and possibly the devs if they want to stream some of their games at current stages. I was thinking of giving it over to one of the mods/admins to take care of, unless they are okay with me moderating the content for the Twitch stream (essentially ensuring that the stream is not used to give out ROMs, or break other rules of Twitch and the Gaming Universe).
If anyone wants to do a speed run of a game, PC or otherwise, at any point with me, let me know, and if you want the password to do a solo game on it, just hit me up privately or via Skype (I check this website maybe 3 times a day, while Skype is on anytime I am home).

I would love information on the channel so I could stream some stuff. I'm thinking of doing some Metroid-based streams. ... Maybe. :P

Here's a meaty sampler of my Steam list I'll volunteer just for kicks, including some of my most recent purchases. See what you guys think:

Satazius
The Binding of Isaac
Adventures of Shuggy
Braid
Cave Story+
Limbo
Indiana Jones & the Fate of Atlantis
Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade
Lone Survivor
Loom
Gish
World of Goo
Noitu Love 2
Trine
VVVVVV
Ultimate Doom
Super Meat Boy
Dear Esther
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Beat Hazard
Star Wars: Dark Forces
Star Wars: Battlefront II

These are games that I'm mostly sure I can run (and stream) smoothly with my current hardware. This isn't counting my GOG list, the highlights of which include Tyrian 2000 and Raptor: Call of the Shadows. Then there are my ... *ahem* other games ...

... that for all you know I own the original CDs of. :p

Yeah it might be best if you guys have a list of games to go through to accommodate the number of players.  These don't after all, have to be full playthroughs always.

I actually have most of the games on that list, Kaiser. xD Super Meat Boy is awesome, though I have major issues with 100%ing it.
As for the information, I will send it to Aegis, and do you two wish for it as well?

Send it to them, and me as well.
Never say never or always. In most cases, there is an exception to anything you can think of that you might use either word in. "Most likely" and "highly improbable" in a lot of those cases would ring true, but not never/always.
