The Shacknews Chatty community continues to archive sessions of their favorite games across the large number of Shacknews Twitch channels and many of them have proven vastly entertaining to watch. And so we return with the second week of Chatty Twitch Highlights, featuring wonderfully over-the-top 80's action, virtual reality heart surgery, and a trip to Disneyland.
Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of January 25, 2014.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a stylistic look back at everything wonderfully cheesy about 80's action movies. And the game undoubtedly peaks with the arrival of the neon-colored blood dragons. dael shows off one of the game's more climactic scenes, not only surviving the onslaught of a blood dragon, but also escaping in true 80's action movie style.
Surgeon Simulator 2013
It's only appropriate that a user named sergeon would don some scrubs and dive into Surgeon Simulator 2013. Attempting to perform a heart transplant on board a moving ambulance sounds hard enough as it is, but sergeon goes the extra mile by playing this level with the Oculus Rift VR headset and the Razer Hydra motion controller. Medical malpractice has never been so much fun!
I'm technically dipping into last week's highlights here, but this was too good not to mention. CoreContingency tests out his Nvidia Shadowplay setup with Left 4 Dead 2, trying out one of the game's cooler mods in the process. Watch as he attempts to survive a zombie onslaught within the confines of Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure ride. It's a remarkably accurate re-creation of one of the park's coolest attractions, which you can download here. Watch out for the giant boulder, Indy!
