Devil May Cry 1 HD Now Live For Twitch Prime Subscribers

Posted on March 7, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Twitch has added the much promoted free copy of the Devil May Cry HD to the Twitch Launcher for prime subscribers. To claim the free game all you have to do is head on over to http://www.twitch.tv , click on the crown and under the image of DMC click “add to library”. Like other Twitch Prime rewards, Devil May Cry HD is yours to keep even after your Twitch Prime subscription lapses.

Clearly the gratis copy of DMC1 HD is a move by Capcom to help promote the upcoming Devil May Cry HD Collection, which will see its releae on PC for the first time on March 13th. Devil May Cry HD Collection includes touched up versions of the 2001 original, the mediocre 2003 sequel Devil May Cry 2  and 2005’s Devil May Cry 3.

Several DMC games have made their way to PC over the years – namely Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition which was originally ported a year after the console release in 2006, Devil May Cry 4 which was released on PC in 2008 and Ninja Theory’s D.M.C reboot in 2013. Both 4 and D.M.C are absent from the upcoming HD Collection but can still be purchased through Steam in their original form.


SEGA Reveals TwitchCon 2017 Lineup

Posted on October 17, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Publisher SEGA announced that they will be attending the annual video streaming convention TwitchCon from October 20th through the 22nd in Long Beach California. SEGA will be bringing two of their biggest Fall titles with them for attendees to play: Sonic Forces & Total War: Warhammer II.

Total War: Warhammer fans can get a sneak peek at the upcoming Mortal Empires add-on which merges content from both the original game and its sequel for a truly epic new campaign. Mortal Enemies brings the starting faction count to a staggering 117 and is only a small part of Creative Assembly’s vision for a Trilogy of Warhammer strategy titles that will intermingle via free add-on DLC.  Mortal Enemies will make an appearance both on the show floor as well as on SEGA’s official Twitch.tv channel.

To comprehend the sheer density  that is the content within Mortal Enemies here is how Creative Assembly’s official announcement describes it:

“In terms of content, Mortal Empires is way, way denser than we’d initially envisaged back in 2013, when we were in pre-production for the first game. That’s thanks in part to our New Content team, headed by the ever-cheery Rich Aldridge, whose small but insanely talented crew have contributed to massively more playable factions per-square-mile in the Old World (and therefore in Mortal Empires) than we’d originally imagined. New factions for all those original Old World races (Clan Angrund, Crooked Moon, Bloody Handz and all the rest) plus three new races in Bretonnia, Wood Elves and Beastmen, each with their own sub-factions and start positions. Factor in what the core Warhammer team has been working on for the last year and a half – four new races (that’s eight more Legendary Lords and start positions) with eye-poppingly different mechanics and playstyles for Warhammer II – and you’ve got quite a busy map to play on.”

Also coming to the show floor & twitch is brand new content from the upcoming Sonic Forces. Attendees will be able to check out 4 stages from the final game @ TwitchCon using either Classic Sonic. Modern Sonic or for the first time ever – a custom created character! Sonic Forces will be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 7th.


Bob Ross to Become a Permanent Part of Twitch.TV

Posted on November 10, 2015 by Broken Joysticks

After bringing in 5.6 million unique viewers, with a peak viewer count of over 183.000 watching at the same time, it is fair to say the experiment of putting up Bob Ross on Twitch was a resounding success. As a result of the near universal positive feedback, Twitch will now regularly stream an entire season of Bob Ross’ The Joy of Painting every monday on the designated channel. They will also stream the entirety of the thirty two seasons back to back every year on October 29th, to celebrate his anniversary on Twitch.

This is the part where I think of something clever or sarcastic to say but it just doesn’t seem right here. The unironic embracing of Bob Ross by the, let’s be honest, often toxic Twitch community is something so heart warming and positive even I can’t be cynical about it. Tuning into it and watching people celebrate every time he finished a painting the same way they’d celebrate a Nexus being destroyed or a bomb defused, it just made me feel….happy. Even years after his death, Bob Ross is still spreading the Joy of Painting to new generations, and I’d like to just appreciate that.


BrokenCast EP 4 – “Twitchin’ Around At The Speed of Sound”

Posted on September 11, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

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
