Afternoon Livestream Recap: Titanfall

Posted on February 17, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Sometimes a first person shooter is perfect for a lazy afternoon. You can sort of just turn off your brain and worry about not being shot in the back of the head. EA / Respawn’s Titanfall might not get a lot of play two years after its release but it is still a lot of fun.

This past afternoon I bolted myself into my mech and enjoyed a few rounds of Titanfall on Twitch.TV. Here’s a video recap of a couple matches – make note that I tend to die a lot.

We’re back after a two week hiatus with a brand new format for BrokenCast. Instead of bouncing around between topics somewhat randomly we are going to pick a theme for each week and publish smaller episodes at regular intervals around these topics.

On Episode 4 of Broken Cast I’m joined by Andrea Ritsu and Dorian (@Bardings on Twitter) and we discuss the impact that Speed Runs and Twich.TV has had on E-Sports and the gaming industry as a whole. We also sit down and discuss Dorian’s brand new Twitch Channel, Team Changeling a unique space for Transgender people to come together and share their love of games.

So sit back, relax and enjoy Episode 4 – Twitchin’ Around At The Speed of Sound

Live Stream: Watch Us Beat Up Chickens In Guacamelee

Posted on May 8, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

This month’s PlayStation Plus offerings included the highly acclaimed Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championshop Edition so for this week’s live-stream we decided to take this Mexican wrestling inspired brawler for a bit of a spin.

Unlike last week’s live-stream this week features commentary by not only myself but occasional writer for Broken Joysticks Ben Longpre who last reviewed The Awakened Fate Paradox.  We talk about the game’s mechanics, what other games we are playing and reminisce about the launch of the PlayStation.

Fair warning: I am pretty terrible at this game, so there is quite a bit of dying involved. I hope you enjoy the stream and look for more gameplay streams from Broken Joysticks.

We will be rendering our final verdict on Omega Quintet tomorrow evening when our written review goes live.

Depending on the viewership numbers for our archived live streams we may run more in the future.

Omega Quintet  will be released both digitally and at physical retailers tomorrow.

3DS Focused Nintendo Direct Scheduled for Tomorrow

Posted on November 12, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Everyone might be talking about the impending release of the PlayStation 4 but Nintendo hasn’t forgotten their handheld’s devoted following with the announcement of a Nintendo Direct scheduled for tomorrow. Both Nintendo of America and Nintendo Europe will be simultaneously broadcasting this latest game focused showcase.

Some games that may be highlighted during tomorrow’s stream: Mario Gold 3DS, Bravely Default Fairy, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy and perhaps the upcoming Mario Kart 3DS. If Nintendo really wants to shake away some coverage from Microsoft and Sony’s upcoming console launches maybe they should throw in a brief teaser for Smash Bros for WiiU and 3DS.

You’ll be able to catch the Nintendo Direct through this link at 8 A.M PST!
