Hey everyone! Tomorrow, Tuesday August 6th, we’re going to be trying something a little different with streaming. Instead of just random streaming, we’ve got a theme, and that theme is Bar Fights! Ok, we don’t really have a theme, we just want to fuel our secret alcoholism and play some good ole beat em ups. So join your hosts, Brad and Andrew of NUReviews, and a couple of their select friends as they drink and fight their way through hoards of unfairly sober enemies. We’ll be playing the newly released Dragons Crown, and when that becomes too much of a challenge, we’ll move on to Castle Crashers and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World! We’ll be starting sometime around 8:30 (we believe), but for a more accurate time be sure to check our facebook page (and if you haven’t liked it, like it! We’ve still got our 3DS eShop Card/Professor Layton giveaway going). After tomorrow our regularly scheduled streaming schedule should resume, so tune in as this may be a once in a life time opportunity (although probably not, cause we like to make fools of ourselves).
I didn’t think I would ever be giving BLOPS 2 any sort of praise on this site, until today that is. Twitch.tv, one of the largest video game streaming sites (we use it ourselves), announced that they have made a partnership with Activision and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to broadcast your gameplay, from your Xbox 360, directly to your twitch.tv channel without any extra hardware needed. Here are some of the features listed in the press release.
- Connect to your Twitch account from within Call of Duty: Black Ops II
- Broadcast freely and direct to your Twitch channel
- Webcam enabled for picture-in-picture broadcasting with Xbox Kinect
- Automatically share your live feed to Facebook and Twitter
Some of the previous games in the Call of Duty franchise has offered features that allowed a player to upload gameplay clips directly to YouTube. But this is pretty big news. For now, I would imagine a massive influx of BLOPs 2 players to show up on Twitch.tv (as if there weren’t enough already.) But if developers decide to make this a more common feature in future games, like in MOBAs or fighters, this could be a start of a new wave of gaming entertainment.
This feature will also soon be available for the Playstation 3 and PC.

Got nothing better to do on a Friday Night? Do you feel like you are going to be forced to endure the terror that is the Spike Video Game Awards. Let us help you out then!
Tomorrow, NUReviews will be hosting a live stream viewing party for the VGAs, so that way, we’ll join you in yelling and throwing stuff at your TV or screen. Afterward, we’ll be doing a live podcast discussing how the show went and our reactions.
