TwitchAdoption! 20 percent of recent Twitch streams are on PS4 photo



Apparently people are really taking to this whole "stream gameplay from your PlayStation 4" concept. Twitch announced today that between December 23, 2013 and January 3, 2014, 20% of its broadcasters were PS4 owners. One-fifth ain't bad for a console that isn't even two months old.

Matthew DiPietro, Twitch's VP of Marketing, commented on the statistic by remarking "Ever since we began working with the major console platform companies, we were confident the integration of live broadcasting to Twitch would be a game changer.

Some metal bands, not the Castle Crashers devs, play Evolve DLC

A video with a misleading title led me to accidentally watch an Evolve DLC video. "Behemoth plays Behemoth" is less Dan Paladin and Tom Fulp, and more metal bands I've never heard of. But, if you're looking for fantastic insight and well-thought-out critique such as "I loved killing them; they were pissing me off," and "It's pretty much like being on-stage," then do I ever have the video for you.more

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is the craziest One Piece game yet

Omega Force isn't always known for innovation, but occasionally, it'll surprise just about anyone. As the developer of countless Warriors subfranchises, this group knows a thing or two about beat-'em-ups, and the One Pie...more
