Chatty Twitch Highlights 22: Battlefield Hardline, TF2 Shackbattle, and more

Chatty Twitch Highlights returns after a one-week hiatus! This week, ChiefSquattingBear takes us through the Battlefield Hardline beta, Sapiens plays the Outlast Whistleblower DLC, and a whole lot of us gather together for a Team Fortress 2 Shackbattle.


After a one-week hiatus, Chatty Twitch Highlights returns with great vengeance and furious anger! And in this post-E3, Steam Summer Sale world we're currently living in, there are plenty of highlights to be found. And there's no better game to lead off with than Battlefield Hardline before cringing through Outlast and taking it home with a good old-fashioned Team Fortress 2 Shackbattle.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of June 21, 2014.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.

Battlefield Hardline

The Battlefield Hardline closed beta is in its final days. As you consider whether to jump into Visceral's take on cops and robbers, perhaps check out this playthrough from ChiefSquattingBear. He plays through the game's Blood Money mode, taking some time to show off many of the game's mechanics. If you're swayed to track down a Battlefield Hardline closed beta code, remember that all weapons are unlocked through the beta's closing date of June 26.

Not only did Outlast hit Xbox One earlier this week, but the game's price also got slashed in half as part of the Steam Summer Sale. If you pick this up, you'll likely want to get into Mount Massive Asylum's origins through the Whistleblower DLC. If you want a taste of what the add-on has to offer, you can watch Sapiens run through it below.

WARNING: Some scenes get very intense and are likely NWS.

Team Fortress 2

Team Fortress 2 celebrated Love & War earlier this week with an all-new update. And given that this is the long-running shooter's first substantial update in a while, it gave Chatty the incentive to hold a special "I Teleported Bread" Shackbattle, for old times sake. So take a peek through my eyes, as I venture into battle with hirez, Deathlove, megarust32, omnova, BlackCat9, and many of Chatty's most loyal TF2 players and run through classic maps like 2Fort, Badlands, and Gold Rush to fall in love with this game all over again.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. 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?
