For more information about me, click [here](https://www.silentkaster.com) which will take you to my personal website. I write a blog which covers everything from personal thoughts to searching for a job to streaming advice. Hey everyone! My name is Kevin. I'm a 33 year old guy who likes video games, and loves streaming. I like to play poker, cook and more, so if those are topics that interest you, feel free to ask or discuss away! I talk about a ton of topics, some of which aren't necessarily your most vanilla. Unless I'm pretty darn good at the game, expect a lot of fails and self-deprecation. Heck, you might even find yourself to be the subject of deprecation :P but it's all to have fun, enjoy and get a little better each time (with speedruns) through the glorious process of insanity. Yes, by the way, I am balding if you want to ask. I'm just not ready to go bald yet. I've got a little more weight to lose, and then it will happen!
This channel is a mixture of poker streams, blind plays, re-plays and speedruns. Current Games: Resident Evil Classic (Speedruns) Resident Evil: Code Veronica X (Speedrun) Mega Man Legends 2 (Casual) Final Fantasy Tactics (Arena and Speedruns) Metal Gear Solid (Casual) Currently, you earn one chip for being here every minute. You can use these chips for different items on stream. Check [here](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1git2H8cqJbre7yccyutFc9XwWK_psWlPhc5NdEClLog/edit?usp=sharing) to see how.
A few people I'd like to especially thank: WitchRain and MikeGedge: You have been here in almost every stream for quite a long time and you populate my stream, no matter what game I'm playing. You encourage me, troll me and rib me, which has caused me to laugh so hard I just about cry. Thank you. CrazyGamingDayz: Thank you for inspiring me to become a Resident Evil speedrunner. It's because of you I torture myself with this insanity and enjoy every minute of it. GameSquadSquad: Thank you for showing me how perseverance is for streaming, and for being the first donor and the large hosts and raids in my early days. The retro community is great and I would not have met any of them except for you. Laid_Back: Thank you for the microphone donation and being you, it's been an amazing ride getting to know you both on Twitch and in person. VonBeardly: You were my first sub, and always lurked in my chat for the first few months. Thank you so much for your support. BloodOfTheGods6464: You used to be in every stream when I first started, and I miss you to this day. You were the largest donor to get me started, and encouraged me even when I had only you as a viewer. Thank you for getting me started. Baabaa95, SmokeTheBear, Splint3r6, WaspTN, and my donors: You guys gave so much both monetarily and love in the form of conversation to my stream. Without you all, I'd probably still be exactly what my screen name implies: Silent. Thank you for being you and overwhelming me with generosity. A special thank you to those that have dropped bits, the raids, the hosts, or just sat and lurked. I could go on and on, but I realize in the interest of space, I shouldn't. I may add more names here later, but know I appreciate everyone. Thank you so much.
Subscribing is an option through Twitch that you can use to support streamers. Any Amazon Prime member may merge their Prime membership with Twitch and acquire one free subscription per month to use on other streamers, in addition to enjoying benefits like ad-free viewing and loot for games! This will cost you no extra money, so please use your subscription for the benefits on your favorite streamer, even if that person isn't me! They'll be very grateful for the support they receive and you'll get channel benefits. I pride myself on not putting up paywalls for subscriptions, so there are no subscriber only events, discords, etc. I do have emotes for subscribers, which I'd love to make available for all people, but alas, I cannot. If you'd like to see the emotes, simply ask me! I will be happy to type them in chat for you.
Streaming for long periods of time can obviously make us hungry. (Plus those shots you make me do can really take their toll and food helps with that. :P) If you'd rather donate this way instead of cash, this can often help me do longer streams or take shorter breaks. Since I often need to break to eat, this is a way to keep the stream up. Just like with any monetary donations, there is no expectation of this and I greatly appreciate everyone who chooses to visit.
I stream from two computers, depending on the game. On the Laptop, I'm not quite sure of the specs as I bought it 7 years ago between models, but it's an Asus ROG laptop with an I-7. Gaming comp Specs: CPU: Ryzen 7 GPU: Zotac 1060 6 GB RAM: Corsair Vegeance 3000 MHz 16 GB Motherboard: Asus B350-f ROG Gaming Case: DIYPC Gamemax-W Power Supply: 600 BQ Bronze Semi-modular OS: Windows 10 Capture Card: Elgato HD60s Mic: Yeti Blue Blackout Edition Webcam: Logitech C922
Schedule will be pretty tentative but you can expect a couple weeknights, usually starting between 7-9 PM, Fridays with random start times and most Saturdays/Sundays. Until I can nail down regular days, this is the best I can give. Thursdays are usually off. Join the Discord to see when silentkaster is streaming! https://discord.gg/FgjhavF
