Chatty Twitch Highlights 6: Three Titanfall videos, World of Tanks, and Wargame

Chatty was all over the Titanfall beta last week, so much so that it's been hard to nail down which highlight to show off to the world. So I threw up my hands and decided to show off three different Titanfall highlights, each showing a different aspect of the game. If Titanfall isn't quite your thing, there's also Lickuright getting into World of Tanks on a pub server and Hemtroll leading the latest Shackbattle for Wargame: Airland Battle.

Weekend Confirmed 174 - World of Tanks, Rayman Legends

Weekend Confirmed 174 - World of Tanks, Rayman Legends

Jeff Cannata has ventured to the land down under, leaving host Garnett Lee to brave the days of summer with Shacknews' Andrew Yoon, "Indie" Jeff Mattas, and Double Jump's Christian Spicer. They begin the show by looking back at the days of Counter-Strike and whether that kind of multiplayer magic can ever be recaptured, before briefly jumping back into World of Tanks. That leads into talk of everyone's Steam Summer Sale bounty and whether Steam's annual sale can compare to the free offerings from PlayStation Plus. Your questions from last week's show thread are also answered and Andrew catches you up on the latest in games before everyone sends you off into this Comic-Con/PAX Australia weekend with a new round of Finishing Moves.
