Five Nights at Freddy’s, or FNAF, is the next video game to get a live-action movie treatment. This game became viral on video streaming sites because of its dark story and Jump Scares. Almost every Gaming Channels on YouTube and Twitch are on a streaming frenzy for this game. This Game Franchise is so successful that most of Matpat’s Game Theory Episodes are about FNAF. The success of the first game leads to 8 sequels and some spin-offs. The movie will follow the Premise of the first game. It is about a security Guard who takes a midnight shift job at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza. It is a place similar to 90s Chuck E. Cheese, where animatronics sing to entertain children. Jason Blum, the mastermind behind movies such as “M3GAN,” “Freaky,” and “The Black Phone,” produces it.
This 65-year-old political commentator criticizes something he never understands. I guess it is his attempt at comedy. I am pretty sure he loves to watch sports and I don’t judge him for watching people exercise. People watches Mr.Maher to talk, Well people also watches videogame streamers to talk.
Remember Mixer? That game streaming platform Microsoft was aggressively pushing as an alternative to Twitch, that felt more like the next Bing? Our gut feelings were correct…the thing just Binged itself.
If you’re not a streamer, you may not see much value in having a Twitch account beyond the ability to spam emojis of people’s faces over and over in a fast-moving chat window. Now may be the time for the rest of us, however…Twitch is getting its own built-in Pac-Man game, and we don’t just mean the 1980 version. We mean something we’d pay for, yet Namco is giving away. (Pac-Man officially turns 40 today! Might have something to do with it.)
To the surprise of no one, Games Done Quick has decided to postpone its summer charity event. The plan is still to hold it in the summer, but around August instead of June, assuming things get somewhat better by then. But wait a minute…if there was ever a time we needed a charity event that attracts millions of viewers AND dollars, it’s now, right?
It didn’t take long for Call of Duty Warzone to land its first major public esports event. Twitch Rivals: Warzone Streamer Showdown is a new competition where the biggest Twitch names from all over the world throw down, with a prize pool of $250,000 (or the pounds/Euros equivalent) at stake.
Deep Water Games, distributors of fine tabletop gaming experiences, knows how frustrating it is to be in a situation where you can’t really host an in-person gaming session of any kind. That’s why they’re announced a series of livestreams, bringing the fun to YOU!
Once a week, a group of professional voice actors gets together, turns on the camera, and livestreams themselves playing tabletop games. The series is called Critical Role, and it’s something I’ve been meaning to get into, but haven’t ever found the time (this is true for a LOT of media out there….because there is a LOT of media out there).
You fancy yourself a good video game player, with a quick wit for commentating, and dream of someday making acres of cash off your own bath water. AVerMedia, producers of products used by many Twitch streamers, is introducing a new all-in-one device to the market built specifically for streaming on Twitch (or Mixer, if Microsoft pays you off).
Wait, whah? Games Done Quick is going on NOW? What kind of Sega Saturn trick is being pulled here? What’s happening is Games Done Quick Express, a smaller event being held at this weekend’s TwitchCon. And instead of one charity, it’s raising cash for ten, including St. Jude, Make A Wish and more.
Is it really that time again? Summer Games Done Quick 2018 is starting up this weekend. If it feels like these GDQ speedruns happen sooner and sooner each year, relax — that just means you’re closer to the grave.
Doctor Who’s original unbroken run lasted for over 500 episodes, spanning 1963 to 1989. Seven actors played the role during this time, including some of the most famous (Tom Baker, Jon Pertwee). If you were to take six hours out of your day to watch all of them, and you began on May 29, you wouldn’t be finished until July 23. We know this because that’s how long it’s going to take Twitch to broadcast every single surviving episode.
