A Swiftly Tilting Cameron

From LoadingReadyWiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

A Swiftly Tilting Cameron follows Cameron's attempts to play various strategy games on the highest possible difficulty settings, with various results.

The game's title comes from a critically acclaimed young adult science fiction book A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle (the third book in the series that began with A Wrinkle in Time), which Cameron claims to have enjoyed as a child. The word "tilt" refers to "tilting out", a phrase commonly used in gaming to indicate one becoming so angry at their failure with a given game that their performance suffers, causing them to become even angrier, creating an endless downward spiral.

Cameron does not usually have any wingmen. Like Kathleen, he typically plays his own music via the streaming service RDIO instead of listening to the looping in-game music.

Though Cameron is not known to be an especially angry or aggressive person, his rage has already manifested several times on the stream. Instead of yelling or making frustrated gestures, Cameron's anger causes him to become extremely quiet, focused, and intense, with occasional outbursts of extraordinarily creative profanity and black humor. This state has been described as genuinely terrifying by many members of the onlooking chat.

Subscriber bonuses

Many of the crew members offer special incentives to those who undertake a $5/month subscription during their stream, usually a special greeting message in a signature style such as a "Kathleen commercial". Instead, Cameron offers any subscribers (including those who did not subscribe during his show) the ability to submit requests for special cosmetic modifications to game elements in their name, if such options are available; for example, subscribers were able to request specific names and cosmetic traits for soldiers in X-COM. Those subscriber soldiers are usually referred to as "Cameron Fodder", and have their own LRR forum signature bar.
