1. What are your names?
The Bald Bearded One is Dagwood and the Faux-Hawked One is Brawli.
2. Are you guys gay?
Yes. Even more so, we are superhero gay. Just by seeing us, you are now gay.
No. We are straight - what does it matter if we were gay?
4. When do you stream?
We stream Sunday - Thursday 7-11PM EST. Sometimes, there’s a bonus morning/afternoon stream anywhere between 11am and 5pm EST. Tuesdays are weird - every other week we take part in a WYK team stream,Team Tuesday, where we get together with other WYK-TV team members and play a multiplayer game. Team Tuesday might not necessarily happen on OBG’s channel.
Occasionally on weekends, we stream for special occasions like 24-hour casts. We try to announce our special events far in advance!
5. Will you guys ever play [Game Title]?
We can guarantee you anything you want! But seriously, we have so many games waiting to be played that it is hard to guarantee we will play any particular game in the future. Unless we stop streaming or die, we will try to get to as many games as possible!
6. You guys didn’t respond to what I typed in chat. Should I keep on re-sending it until you do, possibly in all caps?
Short answer? No. Long answer? Hell no. Instead, think of the “Magical Rule of Three.” If you have a message that you absolutely want us to see we are totally okay with you trying to get that question / comment responded to three times. If we haven’t responded by then, we more than likely either missed it or are not answering for a reason - apologies, it happens!
7. May I be a Mod?
We aren’t actively looking for new moderators at the moment, but we’ll let you know when we are! Ideal moderators are regularly present for our broadcasts and have a focus on being productive members of our community. That means participating in chat, helping out new community members, and generally being excited about the content we’re creating.
8. How can I support the stream?
- Turn off Adblock for our channel
- Tip Us
- Follow us on social media - links below!
9. Do you guys have a Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and social media locations I can stalk you on?
Oh, you bet your sweet butt we do!
Steam Community: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/OBGame
10. Do you have Amazon Affiliate links?
Yes we do! You can find them here: http://overboredgaming.com/amazon-affiliate-links/
11. What equipment do you use to stream?
12. What systems do you guys have?
PC gaming rig, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS2, PS3, PS4, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Switch, & a 3DS!
13. How the Heck are you streaming from a Nintendo 3DS?
We are using a modded 3DS; a capture card has been soldered onto the board. You can find out more about it / buy it here: http://www.3dsvideocapture.com
14. Why use XSplit over OBS? Don’t you know OBS is free?!
Yes, we know, but there are a few aspects of the licensed version of XSplit that we specifically need. That isn’t to take anything away from OBS, which is a fine alternative (and in some circumstances, a better option than the paid version of XSplit).
15. Is that beard for real?
Yes. If you were to pull hard on it, you would most likely also free flesh from Dag’s face, and not glue.
16. I love your beard, Dag!
That’s not a question, but thanks!
...Can I have it?
17. How did you come up with the name “OverBoredGaming”?
When you have to name something, you are trying to give something an identity. When it’s something new, you do not yet know what that thing is - it’s still just an idea! Naming it, finding a moniker that encapsulates a thing that doesn’t exist, is hard.
So we did what most people do in that situation and just started flinging names at each other until something stuck. OverBored was just a random thought in a series of other random thoughts, but it was good enough to make us stop and consider it. Realizing that the runner-up names were The Crapscallions and The Riders of Lohan, OverBored quickly won our hearts over due to its layered meanings: we’re going overboard with gaming; we’re over being bored; our show could be considered zany and wild, enough to be thrown overboard.
It’s layered like an ogre, and we like it.
18. May I link my Twitch stream / YouTube Channel / Website / etc. in your chat?
Not without our permission. You may ask politely using our email and we’ll consider your request. If you don’t ask for permission, prepare to be banned.
19. Why won’t you personally invite me to the multiplayer game you’re playing / add me on Steam, XBox Live, PSN, etc (in the middle of a stream)?
Many times, when we play a multiplayer game, it is just the two of us enjoying a game together. When we do multiplayer games with viewers, it is usually very time consuming for us to add people to our friend lists individually, especially while live. It is much more efficient for viewers to friend us and we accept on our end. Please don’t be offended if you give your game handle in chat and we don’t respond.
20. I was banned from chat for no reason!
If you feel you were banned in error, feel free to PM us or our moderators and we’ll see what we can do. Please include what happened.
21. What’s the music you play during your intro?
We use two songs for our stream intro:
22. What song / movie clip do you use during raids?
The song is Leophant by Falcon Funk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=046leMXmWNw
and the clip is from the movie War of The Robots. You can watch it here: https://archive.org/details/WarOfTheRobots
23. WTF is WYK?
Would You Kindly is a streaming team we are part of with with InexpensiveGamer, RomComm, Firecrow, Goobers515, FarringtonEmpire, RobandDan, DomesticDan, Brotatoe, LittleSiha and TheMavShow. We are all broadcasters, but more importantly friends. Expect community events, charity streams, and everything else we can think of in the name of trying to produce the best content for you! Would You Kindly let us entertain you?
24. Whoa! Brawli, where did you get that mug?
25. Do you guys go to conventions?
We’ve been to PAX East 2014-2018, and TwitchCon 2016 & 2017! PAX East and TwitchCon are the most affordable conventions for us to go to, so we plan on continuing those cons. We will be at TwitchCon 2018 and are hosting a panel there.
