Twitch’s app will soon be getting video calls and more features through Curse

A couple of months ago Twitch bought Curse, which started off as a communication suite for gamers to use while in game but has since expanded greatly in what that platform provides. Since then the team at Twitch has been working on integrating Curse’s suite of communication tools into its platform, and now it looks like video calling has finally arrived for Twitch. To start, it is now available for desktop users, but mobile support is in the works.

Twitch takes aim at YouTube with allowing uploads of pre-recorded content now

Up until now Twitch has been strictly a streaming service and platform, not allowing pre-recorded content of any kind to be uploaded to a user’s channel. You could, however, have records of previous live streams and VODs available for your fans to check out if they missed a stream or anything like that. Now Twitch has set its sights on YouTube but allowing pre-recorded content to be uploaded to a streamer’s channel.

Streamer plays for 123+ hours straight in Clash of Clans to achieve Legend status

People will live stream some pretty crazy challenges on platforms like Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Mobcrush, and so on. I’ve personally seen all types of records broken for speed runs in a number of games, as well as people passing out mid-stream trying to break a world records for this or that. It’s pretty entertaining to say the least. Well a streamer by the name of BoarGeneral completed a pretty insane challenge, all of which happened to be streamed live.

Twitch also has their application, but is mainly for just watching streams, unless you have a Shield device. Mobcrush is another company in the streaming scene who has been out for a bit now but mainly in an open beta sort of status.

Smartboy accessory by Hyperkin can turn your phone into a functional Gameboy

As a kid, I remember enjoying a few different types, be they the Tiget handhelds, my brother’s Game Gear, or Nintendo’s Gameboy, all of which (plus more later) enabled gaming “on the go. Hyperkin is a company that has been working on an emulator that runs Gameboy games, and is dubbed the Smartboy. “Big Deal!”, I might hear you say. Well, it might interest you, dear skeptic, to know that this emulator is different from just downloading and running ROMs in two ways.

11-bit Studio’s This War Of Mine’s upcoming physical board game version now has its Kickstarter campaign live

Usually we see board games getting a digital version released onto mobile devices (and other platforms). However, on the flip side of things, 11-bit studio’s This War Of Mine game will be getting a physical board game version made. What’s even more interesting is the fact that 11-bit Studio promises that it’ll be just as intense as the video game.
