It's the first Saturday in April and that means it's time to take a look at the Shacknews Chatty community's latest exploits on Twitch. This week, our hardened crew of Battlefield 4 soldiers get together for their weekly Shackbattle along Siege of Shanghai and Paracel Storm. Meanwhile, Matt Burris takes players on a tour of Warframe, while raija rides with Weaver in Dota 2.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of April 5, 2014.


Battlefield 4

The Shacknews community can't get enough of Battlefield 4 and no amount of technical difficulties can keep our dedicated crew of soldiers from engaging in the latest weekly Shackbattle. This week, Hemtroll takes us through a Conquest session along the Siege of Shanghai map. From there, the battle shifts to Paracel Storm.

Warframe

Warframe operated outside a lot of radars in 2013, but the latest from Digital Extremes offered something different from the everyday run-of-the-mill free-to-play endeavor. Matt Burris offers up a look into this largely unnoticed 2013 third-person shooter, showing off some of its shooting mechanics and fluid animations provided by the developer's Evolution engine.

Dota 2

And finally, Dota 2 continues to reign supreme among MOBAs here at Shacknews and raija takes players through one of his latest wars. It wasn't easy, but raija manages to ride Weaver all the way to 19-3-14. Check out his playthrough below!

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      The stream didn't save anything past 60 minutes for whatever reason but my recording worked just fine. Weird.

        I noticed that on the highlight, so I dug into your 'Past Broadcast' archives and grabbed that one, so the full two-hour Shackbattle should be embedded. Even if it doesn't save forever, it'll be good enough for this weekly feature.

          Huh, when I looked at it yesterday to save forever that's the version I saw. The archived broadcast only went for an hour but I guess it takes a while before the entire thing is archived.

            Swish, indeed! Didn't want to miss the Paracel Storm battle.
