Since tomorrow is Star Wars Day, it's only appropriate that we celebrate the occasion with this week's Twitch highlights. Chatty's draco is here to get you in the mood with a playthrough of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Meanwhile, Mercfox1 ventures into another part of space with Kerbal Space Program and jeffmoeller grabs a partner for some co-op Dark Souls 2. There's so much Twitch fun this week that even the staff decided to get in on the action with a special bonus clip.
Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of May 3, 2014.
Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.
Star Wars: The Old Republic
May the 4th be with you! It's a good time to celebrate being a Star Wars fan, so let's watch draco run through Bioware's MMO take on the franchise. Along the way, he'll critique some of the game's missions and look to answer the question of whether the game's still worth playing, long after its transition to free-to-play. If his playthrough does get you in the mood to log in, remember that you'll get a free droid and double XP for the rest of this weekend.
When we last left Mercfox1, he was attempting to launch a rocket into space with less than desirable results. There are no such setbacks this week, as Mercfox1 successfully launches a rocket into orbit and begins exploring the outer reaches of Earth's atmosphere. Find out whether he can get his spacecraft all the way to the moon.
It doesn't seem right that we've gone this long without seeing Dark Souls 2 on PC, does it? jeffmoeller is going to help rectify that mistake by running through the PC version of the game. Not only that, but he's recruited a partner to help offer a glimpse into the game's co-op mode.
BONUS: NES Remix 2
Since Chatty has been so moved to stream some of their games, I also decided to get in on some of the streaming action. This past week, I ran through some of the nostalgic offerings of NES Remix, mainly running through some of the challenges from Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Kid Icarus, and also some of the remixed challenges. Enjoy and we'll return next week with three more clips from Chatty's best!
