Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Twitch TV will be integrated into Black Ops II

Easy streaming is available to the masses

Following PlanetSide 2 and Origin's lead, Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be integrating Twitch streaming right into the game. This will allow players to broadcast their matches live right onto their Twitch.tv channel.

Players on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 will have access to this new feature with the press of a button. And they'll also be able to stream a webcam and/or audio commentary along with the game's feed. Anyone can watch the feed from a web browser right from Twitch, and Call of Duty Elite users will be able to watch from pretty much anywhere, including tablets and mobile devices. This means you never have to stop watching people play.

This is great news for Twitch. Having the ability to stream to their service right from the game makes it easier for players to broadcast their games, and it will bring more watchers to Twitch channels. And if you needed one very large game to show off how awesome livestreaming can be, Black Ops II has one of the largest audiences around. Activision benefits as well because more people will see people playing Call of Duty and that can never hurt sales.

I'm sure you'll be able to see people playing very soon right on Destructoid's Twitch.tv channel.

Am I the only one excited to play the Forza Motorsport 6 demo?

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront
