There's a lot of nostalgia on this week's Twitch menu, but not until we take a look at one of the more recent (and divisive) games of the last few weeks. Chatty's inc77 plays through The Elder Scrolls Online and actually likes what he sees. Meanwhile, Sapiens plays through the shooter that continues to live on nearly a decade after it was first released, Team Fortress 2. And dael takes us back in time with the PlayStation 2 classic, Shadow of the Colossus.
Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of April 12, 2014.
If there's one game that's left much of the Shacknews Chatty community divided, it's The Elder Scrolls Online. A majority of posters over the past few months have derided the game as a hackneyed entry into the MMO genre and a game wholly unworthy of the Elder Scrolls name. One of our Chatty members, inc77, decided to give the game a look and has come out pleasantly surprised. Take a look at his playthrough and judge for yourself whether ESO is worth your time and hard-earned buck.
I'm going to be the first person to admit that I haven't been on Team Fortress 2 in quite a while. And I say this as someone that's put in well over 2,000 hours into the game. I don't know what got me thinking of TF2 again. Maybe it's the Maddog thread from earlier this week. But I'm happy to relive this still-amazing shooter through the eyes of Sapiens. Along with his partner, Shmelkovich, the man may have just convinced me to jump back in with my Pyro. Yes, I'm a dirty Backburner Pyro, why do you ask?
And finally, set your gears for nostalgia, as dael takes us back to the PS2 days. Can you believe he's never played Shadow of the Colossus? I know! Well, he's finally getting around to experiencing this beloved classic and continuing his hunt for the mighty colossus warriors wandering the world.
