    dkirschner's SMITE (PC)

    [November 9, 2015 02:09:10 PM]
    I had a surreal weekend. I put together a team of mostly students and sociology club members who wanted to participate in Extra Life 2015 and stream on Twitch for 24 hours Saturday to raise money for the charity. Turns out one of my students is a professional SMITE player with a massive Twitch following, so we ended up using his channel as our base of operations. We raised $1000 (our 24-hr goal) in the first hour. Long story short, we ended up raising almost $1800 and came fairly close to 24 hours of streaming. We hit 19 hours and called it quits, going from 10am Saturday morning to 5am Sunday morning.

    During that time, I of course learned how to play SMITE along with a bunch of the other popular multiplayer games. I got a refresher on League of Legends, was told I must buy Black Ops 3, re-downloaded Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3, and so on and so forth. I'm still no fan of League of Legends, but I thought SMITE was pretty cool. It's a more action RPGish MOBA where you're more in control of your hero, which is a god in SMITE. There are a lot of different game modes, though honestly after 19 hours everything was a blur so I can't really tell you what was different about any of them. I plan on playing it some more and getting a better understanding.

    I should note also that this was my first time streaming on Twitch and my first time interacting with a big number of viewers (there were about 500 people in our channel at the height of things, which I gather is a lot). At times, my student put me in charge of playing something and handling his following while he went for food or whatever, which was scary at first because I didn't quite know what I was doing, having only hours before learned how to use streaming software and apply overlays and all that stuff to have a proper stream. But I'm affable and his friends were nice and fun, and they were all highly curious and impressed that a professor was on Twitch playing video games.

    I also feel somewhat connected to SMITE since it's a Hi-Rez game and I have some friends who work on it since it's based not too far from where I live. It's one I've been supposed to play for a long time out of friend obligation but never got around to.

    And that was my weekend. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    Pretty cool take on MOBAs. More third-person action RPGish. ------------- Just don't seem to care for this genre! I'd rather play an FPS.
