Here's this week's Streamtoid schedule

Happy Sunday! Not much has changed since last week, Nanashi's stream has moved to Friday nights, and I highly recommend checking it out. The Playstation Friday Night Fights crew is pretty tight, and they have a great time gaming together, lots 'o laughs all around. Other than that, business as usual. If you want to stream your own show, check out the link below.

The Halo Channel is a thing (Update)

[Update: Trailer now included.] At Microsoft's press conference, right after talking a bit about the upcoming Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 took the stage to reveal The Halo Channel. It's for watching "all things Halo," including shows, streams, and recorded play. It's like Mario Kart TV. Kind of. A partnership with Twitch for the channel was also announced.

This fish is playing Pokémon very slowly, and a lot of people are watching

Twitch is changing its approach to video archives

Twitch is changing the way it handles video on demand and that's going to mean the end of the "save forever" option for past broadcasts on the site. Broadcasts that are cut down into highlight clips can still live on the site...

Modified 3DS hardware created for Twitch Plays Pokémon X

It was slightly surprising to hear that the Twitch Plays Pokémon community is still active if for no other reason than I thought folks would have beaten all of the games by now. Not quite! There's still Pokémon ...
