Hey Beard View fans, I'll be playing Castle in the Darkness over at our Twitch channel at 6:30 pm Eastern / 3:30 pm Pacific. You can obviously watch it embedded below, but I encourage to come join the chat and keep me co...
Today, Amazon-owned videogame streaming service Twitch.tv announced a convention "dedicated to Twitch’s community of partners, broadcasters, and viewers." The show will run from September 25-26, 2015 in San Francisco at...
Twitch Plays Pokémon spawned a lot of "memes" and some nice fan art. Twitch Dates Pokémon is a visual novel set in that universe. And it's non-erotic! "Family-friendly," in fact. Good. I like my Poké...
San Antonio, Texas will be the epicenter of the gaming world this weekend as thousands descend upon the city for the first incarnation of PAX South. No one really knows how it'll go. Maybe it'll mark the beginning of the thir...
Last year, Twitch rolled out an audio-recognition system that scans archived broadcasts for copyrighted music and mutes the offending segments. Now, the game-streaming site is offering broadcasters a library of 500+ songs (wi...
Obsidian Entertainment's massively successful crowdfunded role-playing game Pillars of Eternity has been given a worldwide release date of March 26. Weighing in at around $4.5 million raised in backer pledges and pre-purchase...
Starting today at 2PM Pacific, world-renowned hustler of fine digital culture Devolver Digital will kick off a weekly series of live screenings of videogame-related movies on Twitch.  According to rep Stephanie "Silver ...
"If you've ever wondered what would happen if you pressed your buttons perfectly -- if you pressed them a little bit earlier, a little bit later, or if you had perfect timing, perfect reactions, and you knew exactly what ...
The Xbox One Twitch app has been updated and now console users can watch archived streams, manually select the quality level of broadcasts (!), follow specific games instead of just channels, and search for people. But what's...
When Sony announced PlayStation Experience, I didn't pay it any attention outside of a cursory glance, but in the weeks since, the Las Vegas event has shaped up nicely. It kicks off on Saturday, December 6 with a keynote at 1...
[Disclosure: This stream is sponsored by Devolver Digital in as far as they sent us a build of the game and a couple of strong beers and novelty tankards with which to drink them. Our live commentary will be influenced only b...
Have you seen a shirtless dude stream videogames before? I have -- multiple times, in fact! -- and I hardly ever follow live streams. Twitch has updated its rules of conduct and while much of it is common sense, broadcasters ...
We're reaching the end of our stupid drunken 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand stream, and not getting any more coherent. We shared our tales of drinking tequila in a basement with actual real-world videogame publisher, Devolver Di...
In this segment of our drunken 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand stream, I think we're mostly just getting drowsy. Max talks about the evolution of Eminem and I yell at my roommate for texting me about laundry during the stream.
Watch the slow progression of our drunken stupidity as we continue to trudge through 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. In this segment, I try to make my Bacardi and Vitamin Water cocktail less terrible with lime juice, sadly to no avail. Then Max and I poop a bunch of nonsense from our mouths, as usual.
Max Scoville and I thought it would be a good idea to get drunk and play 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, so we decided we will do exactly that, and stream it for you to watch live. We're stupidly drinking Bacardi and Vitamin Water in Fiddy's honor.  You can watch the stream here, or in the video player below.
As some of you may recall, we took a break from streaming on Twitch.TV. There was a lot of reasons for the temporary halt in production, but we're ready to make a comeback.  We've had some time to mourn our trail-blazing...
[Update: Shows over, but you can watch me play through again in the video above.] Funny thing. I love racing videogames but I'm a terrible driver. In real life, too! Ask anyone that has ridden in my car. In fact, Hamza rode ...
Happy Sunday!Here's your Streamtoid schedule for the week of September 21st - September 27th.Remember, if your're interested in streaming, all you need to do is hit the link below and read up on what you need to do.
Amazon's recent acquisition of Twitch.TV for more than $1 billion might come as a surprise to anyone that had been following various suitors' attempts to buy the streaming mogul. As of late, it had seemed as if Google was poi...
[Update: It's confirmed. Amazon has officially acquired streaming site Twitch.TV. "Amazon will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Twitch for approximately $970 million in cash, as adjusted for the assumption of opt...
First there was a fish playing Pokémon over a Twitch stream like it was a human or something, and now we've got two fish fighting each other in Super Street Fighter II Turbo. If you're new to this phenomenon, the tank...
[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. 
Dumb name aside, I quite like the premise of #killallzombies. It's a top-down shooter for PlayStation 4 in which zombie survival has become a televised sport, and there will be real, human spectators watching you play (if yo...
It seemed inevitable that Twitch was going to roll out a system for flagging copyrighted music in past broadcasts, but what streamers and viewers got this week felt largely unfinished. The company is adding an "appeal" button...
Twitch has a thing for playing Pokémon. Typically, it's a crowdsourced game with tens of thousands of players all helping input controls. Some college kids recently scaled that back and are trying to accomplish the sa...
Some more changes to the way archived broadcasts work at Twitch, and you're not going to like them. The live streaming site is now using technology in partnership with Audible Magic "to scan past and future [videos on demand]...
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...
After seven years, Justin.tv has been shut down. The live video site, mobile apps, and APIs are no longer in service as Twitch Interactive Inc.'s focus shifts entirely to its gaming-focused site, Twitch. Getting ready for th...
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 ...
Nintendo may think watching Twitch streams is not fun, but a lot of people disagree. Twitch has 50 million active users per month. That's more than the population of California. That's more than 20 times the amount of people ...
Catlateral Damage has already been funded via Kickstarter, but in order to reach those stretch goals, they're doing an all-day telethon via Twitch. Counting down the final 50 hours until the campaign ends, the stream will fea...
Twitch has come out with its top games for May 2014, as determined by overall number of minutes watched per title. The top two -- League of Legends and Dota 2 -- come as no surprise whatsoever. But Hearthstone: Heroes of Warc...
Do you like Twitch? Do you like Nintendo? Well don't expect the two to meet intimately anytime soon, according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. Speaking to Polygon, Reggie stated, "we don't think streaming 3...
Twitch sure has a knack for crowdsourcing some of the most beloved games of all time. Next on the hit list is Final Fantasy VI, a game that many hold near and dear to their heart. If you want to experience it in all of its gl...
Twitch streams basically everything these days. I think that's great -- especially for the press conferences. So running their schedule is a service for you, dear reader. I mean, they're now the official streaming platform of...
Sony is teasing a stream of something on the Twitch PlayStation page. Their blog post says that "the revolution will be televised..." and suggests that you might want to change your evening plans to see what they have in stor...
There's been a whole bunch of interesting stuff to talk about in the last week! Halo 5: Guardians has been announced for 2015, Far Cry 4 is coming this fall, Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction has been rebranded as Bombshell, Tom ...
Google buying Twitch. Well, that's one way to scale. Sources with Variety say that Google's YouTube is working to acquire the streaming video site for "more than $1 billion" and preparing for U.S. regulators to challenge the ...
Microsoft is continuing the Gears of War franchise with Black Tusk Studios. I wasn't expecting to hear much about the new installment next month at E3 -- perhaps, at best, a teaser trailer -- but it's possible the company wil...
