    I'd like to organize a couple of game nights where we're all participating in some group VR experiences. This can be something as basic as all getting together to watch someone play something fun in VR (Job Simulator is _perfect_ for this) or engaging in some group multiplayer through stuff like Pool Nation VR or Co-op groups in Raw Data.

    The thought is instead of having a single person on a single Twitch stream every week, we make a whole community effort out of it. Maybe even make a single community account or something! There's a lot of flexibility here, but first I need to know who is interested and what you'd like to do. Sound off, lets see if we can make something fun out of this!

    That could be interesting, your thinking like take turns hosting the session? I definitely think a community twitch account would have value I could offer up access to our upcoming beta for our horror game Abduction too if it entices people

    I'm in a situation that my involvement could be up in the air, but my suggestion is to do a Twitch or Beam channel like Microsoft Expertzone does with their EZ community channels. http://twitch.tv/expertzone_community.

    This channel does have individual GameMasters that stream certain games every week in a same time slot. When new games come out, they get rotated. I'm sure that Sam Sabri can explain how they do it better than me, but the guys that I follow from that group are DaBuiis, Eeyore, Enogar, and ZombiiKittyMew.

    I would recommend that if it is done, we have maybe 2 or 3 "permanent" solo streams and one group stream. I could do PoolNationVR, Tilt Brush, HHHG, or Tabletop Simulator (Settlers of Catan, poker, dominoes, even Pandemic and Munchkin!). Another one is playing the games in AltSpace (I still need to learn how to play Boss Monster)

    Color me interested! As a viewer if nothing else! (I can help moderate chats too if we need, but my gaming skills and VR equipment are pathetic!)

    I'm interested, but not sure I could be a streamer. I only have a Gear VR and an underpowered graphics card on my computer, so can't really use Rift or Vive games at this point even via VRidge.

    I think because my brother is a good gamer he can stream, but because my Internet is particularly slow we can't, also I'm in to anything else.

    Thanks for the validation, Russell. I needed a win this week. I still need some help with a few things, but with my new modem, I can probably stream better on Beam than Twitch. I do have accounts on both to test.

    The EZ guys mission is to get the Xbox Live community to get involved and join in the games. I think that @pkcable would be a great mod, which is what I do on Monday nights for Eeyore on his Overwatch stream (keep an eye on chat and send game invites).

    A community gaming sounds like a good idea! I like the suggestions by @pkcable and @krisguy.

    I would be a spectator for when the selected game is for PC. I would be game for some PS4 multiplayer. EVE Valkyrie anyone?

    Alright, I've created a document here for everyone to fill out. It gives yo a space to list the games you want to play if you're interested, as well as a place to volunteer to be a viewer or a mod. There's a big place to fill out your availability, which will make it easier to schedule times for everyone to participate.

    The way I see it, we don't really need to be a on a weekly schedule or anything like that. We can do this together whenever the most people are available.

    Go do the thing! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Added my info, and general availability, OBVIOUSLY I don't wish to be schedule the whole time, just wanted to give some flexibility. Couple night shifts during the week, and a shift on the weekends would probably work.

    I added my stuff. I really want to do Tilt Brush, but I can't get the config file to work like Google says it should. I might need a mod to talk to me via Discord or Skype during the stream. I can get my Bob Ross on! [happy little trees]

    I just had a great laugh playing Rec room and it's free. I will look at filling the form in tomorrow. Time zone is an issue as I'm in the UK but hopefully I can hook up with you guys. When possible.

    Russell, I just wiped my gaming rig, and it helped make dual head with Vive work! When I get home from the hospital, I'm going to make a test run on my personal Twitch channel.

    Sounds like a good idea!

    Also I think ONCE this gaming streaming channel is up a running and has a bit of traction, maybe a blog feature would be in order?

    Might not be a bad idea. A feature post introducing the "VR Heads" of Twitch.
